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 a drink to boost our Bright Throats set. 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 power which can help us a lot. 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

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. 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
  • 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

5x Shacklebreaker, 5x Bright Throat, 2x Valkyn on a High Elf with Corrupting Bloody Mara drink.

  • Unbuffed: Battle Spirit, out of Combat
  • Buffed: Battle Spirit, Entropy, Channeled Focus and Tri-Stat potions were acitve.

Gear

  • Monster Set: I prefer Valkyn because it deals good damage and also gives me extra penetration. 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 Glory: Your execute ability, deals a lot of damage and heals you.
  • Purifying Light: Apply this to stack up a lot of damage that explodes at the end of the duration.
  • 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!
  • Toppling Charge: Your gap closer, also sets the enemy off-balance.
  • Crescent Sweep: This is your offensive ultimate, very cheap cost and deals good damage but you have to be close to the enemy.
  • 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.
  • Reflective Light: Gives you Major Prophecy 10% Spell Crit and also applies a damage over time effect on the enemy.
  • 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.

Make sure to always weave Light Attacks between your abilities, you can find a guide here: “Weaving Beginner Guide”.

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

You can also use the advanced version which gives you additional very valuable health recovery on top.

Disastrously Bloody Mara food

Mundus Stone

The Mage (Increased Max Magicka)

Race

In terms of race you have a few options. High Elves are my favorite because they get 5% damage mitigation when you channel an attack (Puncturing Sweeps, Radiant Glory) 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.

(Fleshfly Larva, Nightshade, Nirnroot)

Battlegrounds

Screenshot was taken in no Champion Points Cyrodiil campagin unbuffed on the S&B bar.

For Battlegrounds, you want to slightly change the build because Champion Points are deactivated. Instead of 1 Spell Damage glyph we are going to use another Spell Cost Reduction glyph.

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.
