Welcome to the Magicka Templar Healer Build PvE “Reliever” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO.
The Reliever Healer Build is made for PvE Trials & Dungeons. Healing is a very difficult job, depending on how organized your group plays. There is no “best” setup for a healer build, always make sure to adjust the build to your needs. If you are new to ESO, please make sure to also check out:
Templar Healers have always been a very popular class setup. Their Class tree Restoring Light is specifically made for healing. Overall they have a very good healing output and on top of that they have a very specific skill called Breath of Life, which is basically a strong burst heal. Extended Ritual allows you to cleanse most of the debuffs and also give your group members a chance to pick up the Purify synergy, which does also cleanse the debuffs from them, very powerful.

Changes to the previous Version
In the Markarth DLC U28 the build received some changes:
- Minor Berserk: Decreased to 5%, down from 8%.
The new restoration staff from the Vateshran Arena called Force Overflow is also a good ability altering weapon healers can use.
For Magicka Templars make sure to use Channeled Focus, the skill provides Armor & Spell Resistance and it also gives you extra Magicka Recovery. Using Clockwork Citrus Filet (or Witchmother’s Potent Brew) in combination with a Magicka Recovery Glyph and The Atronach Mundus Stone which also boosts our Magicka Recovery, we get to a pretty good high Magicka Recovery. Also do not forget to Heavy Attack on your Resto Staff bar, you will get 30% more resources back!
- Channeled Focus
- Magicka Recovery Glyph
- Heavy Attacks
- Clockwork Citrus Filet (or Witchmothers)
