Introduction

Welcome to the Magicka Templar Build PvE “Beamplar” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. The “Beamplar” build is made for PvE Trials, Arenas and Dungeons. You can also find other Magicka Templar content on the website such as:

Magicka Templar DPS changed quite a lot over the years, here you can find the newest available setup. Like always you can find three different gear setups, one with the best gear, one with advanced gear and a beginner setup.

  • High Single Target (ST) Damage
  • High Area of Effect (AoE) Damage
  • Good Sustain
  • Easy Survivability due to Magicka Shield
  • Trials, Dungeons & Arenas

Changes to the previous Version

U28 Markarth DLC: Updated Champion Points & Character Screenshot.

Champion System

  • Reduced the Weapon and Spell Critical Chance granted from Perfect Strike and Spell Precision to 3% each, down from 9%.

Major/Minor System

  • Major Savagery and Prophecy: Increased to 12%, up from 10%.
  • Minor Berserk: Decreased to 5%, down from 8%.
  • Minor Vulnerability: Decreased to 5%, down from 8%.
  • Minor Magickasteal: Decreased to 168 per hit, down from 300.

Resource Management

Channeled Focus can be used if you have sustain issues on the backbar instead of Solar Barrage.

Energy Orb will always be present in a good group. When you get close to the Orb you can activate its synergy to regain resources.

Potions should always be used on cooldown to gain the maximum benefit from them.

Heavy Attacks help you restore Magicka, if you drop low on resources do a few Heavy Attacks between skills to refill your Magicka.

  • Channeled Focus
  • Orb Synergy
  • Potions
  • Heavy Attack

Trials & Dungeons Setup

5x Perfect False God’s Devotion, 5x Mother’s Sorrow, 2x Maw of the Infernal on a High Elf and Artaeum Picked Fish Bowl food

  • Unbuffed: Out of combat, Buff-food active
  • Buffed: In combat, Raid Dummy buffs, Buff-food,  Weapon Damage Enchantment, Spell Power Potions and Channeled Focus were active

Gear

You will find 3 different setups here. Setup 1 is the preferred setup. For people that do not have all the gear yet can use the Setup 2 which is easier to obtain and beginners can use Setup 3.

  • Setup 1 is with Trial Gear
  • Setup 2 is without Trial Gear
  • Setup 3 is for Beginners

There are plenty of good Magicka DPS sets in the game, you can check out the “Endgame Magicka DPS Sets Article” with an explanation for each set.

Important Info for Magicka Templar Build PvE

Here you can find information about what race, buff-food, potions & poisons you want to use. I also do list all the passives that you need for this setup.

Buff-food

Artaeum Pickled Fish Bowl
(Max Health, Max Magicka)
(Fish, Rice, Clam Gall, Honey)

Artaeum Pickeled Fish Bowl food

In case you still have sustain issues or you don’t have access to False God’s Devotion or you are not a Breton, I recommend using the Witchmother’s Potent Brew Drink (or Clockwork Citrus Filet)

Food buff

Mundus Stone

Shadow Mundus (Increased Spell Critical Damage)

Race

Altmer (Best Damage)
Breton (Best Sustain)
Darkelf
Khajiit

Potions

Spell-Power Potions
(Spell-crit, Spell Damage, Magicka)
(Cornflower, Ladys Smock, Water Hyacinth)

Essence of Spell Power Potion ESO new

Passives

Attributes

All into Magicka

Puncturing Sweeps

I can highly recommend running Puncturing Sweep in certain situations, for example if you are playing solo or in group dungeons. Puncturing Sweeps has a strong heal attached to it while you deal damage, this can be very helpful.


Rotation

Also please check out the “Weaving Beginner Guide” which explains how to weave light attacks between abilities, aka animation canceling.

Simple Rotation

This here is the simple rotation that has less barswaps. You will loose about 4-5k dps compared to the advanced rotation, which is not a big deal.

Simple Magicka Templar DPS Rotation Stonethorn Greymoor ESO

Blazing Spear Purifying Light Elemental Weapon Radiant Oppression Inner Light Shooting Star
Unstable Wall of Elements Degeneration Elemental Drain Barbed Trap Inner Light Crescent Sweep

Advanced Rotation

The advanced rotation is more complicated and is the one I used for the DPS tests in the video.

Unstable Wall of Elements Mystic Orb Solar Barrage Barbed Trap Vampire's Bane Crescent Sweep

Area of Effect Setup

Here you can find an optimized AoE setup for your build. This will help increase your damage on trash packs during dungeons & trials. You can choose any magicka based Monster Set, I prefer Iceheart because it provides so much damage mitigation.

Maelstrom Arena

If you are new to Maelstrom Arena, I highly recommend checking out the full Maelstrom Arena Veteran Guide! Always make sure to start a new wave off with a Heavy Attack to restore a lot of resources! If you still have resource issues use Clockwork Citrus Filet Food.

If you have issues with healing, you can always slot Breath of Life. However, Puncturing Sweeps should be enough to heal you.
