Introduction

Welcome to the Magicka Templar Damage PvP Build “Blazeplar” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO.

This build is optimized for Cyrodiil and Battlegrounds. We are using Shacklebreaker, Valkyn Skoria and Bright-Throat's Boast in combination with Witchmother’s Potent Brew. Those sets will give us overall very good stats for all three resources and will make it easier to sustain and manage your stamina to CC break. The setup has very good AoE and Single Target damage and can pretty much obliterate any setup. We also do have very strong healing which can help us and the group. If you want you can choose another Monster Set, Valkyn is my favourite because it deals a lot of damage and gives extra health, but pretty much every Monster Set will work.

Our S&B Bar is for defensive situations whereas our Destruction Staff bar is for offensive situations.

  • Cyrodiil & Battlegrounds
  • Heavy Armor S&B + Destro
  • Tanky setup
  • Strong Healing
  • High Damage
  • Good Sustain

Changes from the previous version

Redesigned the build for Cyrodiil and Battlegrounds.


Resource Management

Channeled Focus is your main resource for magicka, make sure to keep it up a 100% of the time, it also gives you a lot of resistances which makes you tankier. Tri-Stat Potions are also very important, they can save you because they give a lot of health, magicka and stamina back with one button press. Make sure to save the potion for tough situations. Magicka Recovery Glyphs give us better sustain too. Degeneration also gives us sustain whenever we do light or heavy attacks. You can also also do heavy attacks on your Shock Staff, they deal nice damage because we have an infused Shock Damage Glyph on there and can not be dodge rolled and because we are in heavy armor, they restore 25% more magicka then normal heavy attacks.

  • Channeled Focus
  • Potions (Tri-Stat)
  • Magicka Recovery Glyphs
  • Degeneration
  • Heavy Attacks with Shock Staff

In case you struggle with sustain, you can always swap to the Atronach Mundus Stone which increases your Magicka Recovery.


Cyrodiil Setup

Gear

  • Monster Set: I prefer Valkyn because it deals good damage and also gives me a health bonus. However, if you want to use another Monster Set then go for it.
  • 5/2 Setup: We are using 5 Heavy and two Light Armor pieces, that way we get a little bit better sustain due to the extra spell cost reduction from two light armor pieces.

Skill Info

  • Radiant Oppression: Your execute ability, deals a lot of damage and can also be used from far away to apply pressure
  • Soul Splitting Trap: AoE damage and also deals good single target damage on the enemy.
  • Puncturing Sweeps: One of our strong AoE attacks that heal us while we deal damage.
  • Degeneration: Very strong single target damage, gives you Major Sorcerery (20% Spell Damage buff) and every light or heavy attack you do restores 100 magicka!
  • Aurora Javelin: Deals decent damage and stuns the enemy.
  • Shooting Star Ultimate: This is your offensive ultimate, it costs quite a bit but if you can hit an enemy with this while he is stunned it will deal a lot of damage.
  • Living Dark: Very powerful heal that you should always keep on you while you are under pressure.
  • Ritual of Retribution: Cleanses debuffs, deals damage and heals. You could choose the other morph if you want to cleanse more effects at the same time, but you will loose damage.
  • Honor the Dead: This heals for a lot and if we heal someone below 75% health we will get 60% of the cost back! Just keep in mind spamming this will consume a lot of your magicka, so be careful.
  • Vampire’s Bane: Very long DoT that can be placed on the enemy and deals decent damage. You could also choose the other multi target morph.
  • Channeled Focus: Needs to be on the ground all the times because it gives you the spell and physical resistance buff and also increases your magicka sustain.
  • Spell Wall: If you are under high pressure, activate this, it will give you permablock for a few seconds and you will have time to recover.

Important Info for Magicka Templar Damage PvP Build

I will be explaining a few important things in this section of the Magicka Templar Damage PvP Build.

Buff-food

You need to use Double Bloody Mara in combination with the Bright-Throat's Boast set. That way we benefit from really high stats and extra magicka recovery.

Bloody Mara Drink new Food

Mundus Stone

The Mage (Increased Max Magicka)

Race

In terms of race you have a few options. High Elves are my favourite because they get 5% damage mitigation when you channel an attack (Puncturing Sweeps, Radiant Oppression) and they get a lot of max magicka and max spell damage on top of a bit stamina return from their passives. Bretons and Argonians also work well due to their passives. You can find a full list of all racials in my racial passives article.

High Elf
Argonian
Breton
Dark Elf

Potions

I do recommend using Tri Stat Potions as we really need all Stamina and Magicka we can get, to help with sustain and also blocking.

Tri-Stat Potion
(Health, Stamina, Magicka)
(Bugloss, Columbine, Dragonthorn)

Tri Stat Potion

Poisons

Make sure to run poisons on the S&B bar, those poisons put a lot of pressure on the enemy.

Damage Health Posion
(Damage Poison, Damage Poison)
(Fleshfly Larva, Nightshade, Nirnroot)

double health poisons

Passives

Attributes

All into Magicka


Battlegrounds

For Battlegrounds, you want to slightly change the build because Champion Points are deactivated. That means your overall resources and sustain will drop quite hard. With only a few adjustments you can make the build Battlegrounds ready. All we do is change our buff food and mundus stone.

Buff Food

Instead of Double Bloody Mara we are going to use the Witchmother’s Potent Brew. This is also a drink and will work together with the Bright Throat’s Boast Set.

Witchmother’s Brew (Max Health, Max Magicka, Magicka Recovery)

Food buff

Mundus Stone

Instead of the Mage Mundus Stone you want to use the Atronach Mundus Stone, this one gives you extra Magicka Recovery.
