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. Make also sure to check out Vana’s Youtube Channel which has a lot of helpful stuff about healing there.

Templar Healers have always been a very popular class setup. Their Class tree Restoring Light specifically made for healing helps with that a lot. 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 from the previous version

Updated the skill and set layout for the Scalebreaker DLC.


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. Now on this build we are using 2x Magicka Recovery Glyphs in combination with Clockwork Citrus Filet to give us enough sustain. 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

Trials & Dungeons Setup

  • Unbuffed: Raw stats when not in combat.
  • Buffed: Spell Power Potion, Major Courage, Minor Sorcery and Channeled Focus were active when I took the screenshot.

Gear

In addition to the setups below, here is a list with other very good Healer sets that you can use:

Gear Setup 1

This is one possible setup, always make sure to discuss gear setups with your other healer in your trial group.

  • For the Timeless Blessing (Perfected) (Asylum staff), it doesn’t matter whether you use the imperfect or perfect version, the difference is super small.
  • Infallible Aether is only active on the backbar, so make sure to do your heavy attack there to apply the Minor Vulnerability debuff.

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%.
  • Healing Springs: Very strong heal over time.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Important Info for Magicka Templar Healer Build PvE

Buff-food

Ideally you want to use the Clockwork Citrus Filet as it provides you with a little bit extra Magicka and Health. However, that food is quite expensive, the other option is Witchmother’s Potent Brew that has similar stats.

Blackrose Prison Arena

This section of the build is dedicated to the Blackrose Prison Arena, it is a bit different compared to the usual Trial and Dungeon setup due to how the Arena works and because you fight such a huge amount of enemies each wave.

  • Gear Setup
  • Alternative Gear Setups
  • Skill Setup

Gear Setup

As a healer it is quite tricky in Blackrose Prison. There is a few good sets that I can recommend. I would always slot Olorime because of Major Courage in combination with Earthgore which heals for a lot when you are in a tough situation. As a second five piece set you have some options. If you are new in the Arena Kagrenac's Hope is a really good option so you can res your buddies faster. Sanctuary is also nice because it boosts the heals of everyone. A more advanced set would be the Infallible Mage where you also focus on keeping up the Minor Vulnerability debuff on big enemies to increase the overall damage.

Skills

In terms of skill setup there is nothing really special. I highly recommend keeping up Blockade of Shock to keep procing Vulnerability and Off-Balance. Also keep up Spears they deal a lot of damage now. Mutagen is also a nice heal in this Arena as small heal over time skills really help and in case someone drops low it gives a small burst heal.
