Magicka Templar Build PvE for Elder Scrolls Online

“Beamplar”

Wolfhunter DLC, 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

Magicka Templar Build PvE "Beamplar" – Summerset Chapter ESO

The Video is from the Summerset Chapter, so there might be small changes in this version of the build, remember that.

Changes from the previous version

Reminder: The Build video is from the Summerset Chapter patch. Small changes have been made in the Wolfhunter DLC update, as you can see here in the written guide.

  • Updated Champion Points and improved the passive section.
  • Changed Enchantments, ZOS changed how they proc, so we now run a fire enchant on the backbar.
  • You can choose whether you want to run 1 or 2 Bloodthirsty traits on jewelry.
  • Optimized Gear Setups, it now follows the rule of 1,2,3
    • Setup 1 Melee & Ranged is with Trial Gear
    • Setup 2 is without Trial Gear
    • Setup 3 is for Beginners
  • Optimized Maelstrom Setup
  • Radiant Destruction got buffed, it now deals 480% execution damage.
  • Channeled Focus got buffed, it lasts longer and now provides also more resistance while you stand in the circle.

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

Use Radiant Oppresion from 20% or lower boss HP instead of the 4 Elemental Weapon weaves.

Skeleton Parse

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.

The video is from the Summerset PTS.

Maelstrom Arena

If you are new to Maelstrom Arena, I highly recommend checking out my Beginners Guide for Magicka Templar in Maelstrom Arena!

Gear

  • If you do not have a Perfected Asylum Staff you can also use a Non-Perfected Asylum Staff.

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