Magicka Templar Build PvE “Beamplar” – Summerset Chapter

Table of Contents

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, Dungeons and Maelstrom Arena. There will be different sections, with small adjustments so you can use the build both in a group or solo.

You will find two different setups for this build, a ranged and a melee build. The melee setup will deal slightly more dps, but the difference is not big. Now that we have Psijic abilities that we can use, we gain quite a bit of DPS, thanks to Elemental Weapon. With this skill we can first off go full ranged if we want to and it just deals an insane amount of damage compared to for example force pulse. The passives of the Psijic Order are also nice. If you do not have Psijic Order, you can still use the old skills like Force Pulse and Puncturing Sweeps.

  • High Single Target (ST) amage
  • High Area of Effect (AoE) Damage
  • Good sustain
  • Easy survivability due to magicka shield
  • Trials, Dungeons & Maelstrom Arena

Changes from the previous version

Updated Champion Points. Now we can use 5x 5x 2x setup thanks to the change of two handed weapons now counting as two pieces. In most situations Siroria is the new go to set in combination with Mother’s Sorrow. We also use the new Psijic Order ability Elemental Weapon, which is very good for dps. So basically, Gear, CP and Skills changed quite a bit, it is basically a completely new build.

Resource Management

With only a few tweaks you can make sure to have good sustain, I will also tell you how you can find your own “sweetspot” for sustain. This patch we are using Channeled Focus which helps already a lot with sustain and it also gives us Spell & Armor resistance on top of that, this ability has to be activate all the times. Now the last big thing that you can choose on your own to tweak your sustain, Magicka Recovery Glyphs. Heavy Attacks are also a great tool to restore resources, while we not really need them for this build, if you really get into a situation where you dry out, use one or two heavy attacks! Witchmothers Brew is also an good option, just make sure to adjust your health value. I felt I reached good sustain with 1 Recovery Glyphs. However, if you think your sustain is still not where you would like it to be, then try with  two Magicka Recovery Glyphs and then you should definitely be good to go.

  • Channeled Focus
  • Drain Magicka Poisons
  • Magicka Recovery Glyph
  • Heavy Attacks
  • Witchmothers Brew

I did some tests on the PTS with the Magicka Templar, I used the Lover Mundus in this parse, melee setup. Rotation might be off a bit because I did not have the full rotation when I did record the video.
