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.

If you are new to ESO, please make sure to also read the New Player Beginners Guide and the Magicka Templar Beginners Guide, there are a lot of Beginner Guides that you can check out.

Magicka Templar DPS changed quite a lot over the years, here you can find the newest available setup. The build is a lot more DoT focused because of all the different abilities we run.

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

Changes from the previous version

Changed skills and rotation for the Scalebreaker DLC.

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. Absorb Magicka Enchantment also helps with restoring resources. Heavy Attacks are also a great tool to restore resources, while we don’t really need them for this build, if you really get into a situation where you dry out, use one or two heavy attacks. Clockwork Citrus Filet is also a good option, just make sure to adjust your health value if you want to use it. Now the last big thing that you can choose if you wish to tweak your sustain, Magicka Recovery Glyphs, usually you do not really need them but if you feel sustain is too low, get one of those to help you. Healers also have to constantly Energy Orb so you can activate the synergy and regain resources, this has a cooldown of 20 seconds.

  • Channeled Focus
  • Absorb Magicka Enchantment
  • Magicka Recovery Glyph
  • Heavy Attacks
  • Clockwork Citrus Filet

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
Breton
Darkelf
Khajiit

Potions

Spell-Power Potions
(Spell-crit, Spell Damage, Magicka)

Spell Power Potions

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 & Skeleton Parse

In case you don’t know what what weaving light attacks is, make sure to check out the “Weaving Beginner Guide” which explains how to weave light attacks between abilities, aka animation canceling.

Rotation

Before you start the fight apply Channeled Acceleration.

Drop your Destro Ultimate and do one Light Attack, then continue with:

Unstable Wall of Elements > LA > Solar Barrage > LA > Soul Splitting Trap > Weapon Swap

Reflective Light > LA > Destructive Reach > LA > Degeneration > LA > Blazing Spear > Destructive Reach > Weapon Swap

Restart

LA = Light Attack

Execute (25% and below)

During Execute only keep Blazing Spear and Unstable Wall of Elements up. Once those DoTs are placed use Radiant Oppression till you have to reapply DoTs again.

Target Dummy Video

This video is from LIKO’S Youtube Channel, he does a full 21 million Target Dummy Parse on the Raid Dummy. This video is a fully optimized Target Dummy Setup, so it will differ from the raid build here!

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.
