Introduction

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.

  • Dungeon, Arena & Trial Build
  • Insane Healing
  • Insane Sustain
  • Light Armor
  • Group Support

Changes to the previous Version

In the Stonethorn DLC U27 the build received some changes:

Hollowfang Thirst: Reduced the Magicka granted from this set to 2523, down from 3000.

Vestment of Olorime:

  • Reduced the duration of the Major Courage on this set to 20 seconds, down from 30 seconds.
  • Reduced the duration of the Area of Effect (Circle) from this set and the Perfected version to 5 seconds, down from 10 seconds.
  • Adjusted the Max Targets to 6 per tick, down from 12. Please note that this set can still affect more than 6 players, but no more than 6 can get the bonus every second in the circle.
  • With these adjustments, the set will now better reinforce the need to coordinate with your allies and quickly capitalize on the effect, but better reward you for doing so.

Spell Power Cure:

  • This set now grants Major Courage when you over heal the target, rather than having a 50% chance to grant it when you heal them at 100% Health.
  • Reduced the duration of the Major Courage granted from this set to 5 seconds, down from 10 seconds, to reinforce the need to constantly heal your allies, getting them to full health and ensuring they stay topped off at all times.
  • This set no longer has a 6 person target cap, to better mirror the power of Olorime.

Both Olorime and Spell Power Cure are viable sets that provide your group with Major Courage.


Resource Management

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)

Trials & Dungeons Setup

5x Perf. Olorime, 5x Hollowfang, 2x Symphony of Blades on a Breton with Clockwork buff food.

  • Unbuffed: Out of combat
  • Buffed: Spell Power Potion, Major Courage, Minor Sorcery and Channeled Focus were active when I took the screenshot.

Gear

You can find more good sets for healing in the “Must Have Healer Sets” Article. To be fully ready I recommend trying to get most of these sets and confirm with your raid leader what combinations you need them in.

Skills

Remember, Healers often need to change a few skills out during runs, especially in Trials. So this setup is not maced into stone, adjust it to your needs.

  • If you have Magicka Damage Dealers in your group make sure to activate Purifying Light in combat to activate the Minor Sorcery buff for your group members.

Skills Explanation:

  • Breath Of Life: Your main burst heal.
  • Combat Prayer: This is your main spammable as a healer, it needs to be on the group members all the time to heal them and increase their damage by 8%.
  • Illustrious Healing: Very strong heal over time that always has to be kept active.
  • Radiating Regeneration: Very strong heal over time that you have to keep up all the time.
  • Purifying Light: Activate to gain Minor Sorcery for you and your group via the Illuminate passive.
  • Solar Prison: Can be used to mitigate a lot of damage and the synergy deals a crazy amount of damage.
  • Channeled Focus: Gives Major Resistances and also greatly improves your sustain.
  • Elemental Blockade: Keep this on the ground as much as possible, when that Elemental Shock Blockade is on the ground with your charged trait, concussion and off balance will almost proc on cooldown, increasing group DPS by a lot.
  • Elemental Drain: This ability needs to be on the enemy as much as possible, it debuffs their Spell Resistance and gives Magicka Steal to your whole group, increasing sustain by a lot.
  • Luminous Shards: Keep throwing this, allies can use the synergy to regain resources. You could also slot Orbs here.
  • Extended Ritual: Keep this up all the time, strong heal and people can use the purify synergy to cleanse themselves from debuffs.
  • Aggressive Warhorn: This is your main Ultimate, it buffs the groups resources and increases the critical damage modifier for 10 seconds.
