Introduction

Welcome to the ‘Magicka Templar Healer Cyrodiil PvP Group Build “Lightbringer” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. The Lightbringer Build is optimized for Organized Group Play of 12-16 in Cyrodiil.

This build is a 5-1-1 light setup with Perfect Vestment of OlorimeCrafty Alfiq and Nightflame.

The best part about this build is that it allows you to run very low sustain since you have almost 45k max magicka self-buffed. As a healer, your role is not only to keep the group alive but also to provide them with any useful group buff available in the game with different sets or abilities.

Also note that with the Harrowstorm update, Sacred Ground now increases the amount of damage you can block by 10%. They also adjusted the animation from Nova to make it easier to distinguish between a friendly or enemy one.

  • Optimized for Organized Group Play of 12-16 in Cyrodiil

In case you don’t know what weaving light attacks is, make sure to check out the “Weaving Beginner Guide” which explains how to weave light attacks between abilities, aka animation canceling.


Resource Management

Artaeum Pickled Fish Bowl is the Food we use with this setup. Repentance combined with the Combustion synergy from Energy Orbs, Wormcult buff always active and the Breton race passives provide us with plenty of magicka and stamina sustain for prolonged fights.

Gear

We are running a 5-1-1 Light Armor setup Perfect Vestment of Olorime, Crafty Alfiq with Nightflame. For Group Play, I found that 7 Impenetrable traits work best. You want to make sure to always stay in front of the group. If you are having issues to do so, consider transmuting some of your jewellery to Swift until you get comfortable with your positioning. Earthgore is also a solid choice on a healing or support setup.

Note that none of the sets provided in this build are best in slot. You should run all of the options on different healers to complete each other.

First, pick a group buff set :

  1. Perfect Vestment of Olorime
  2. Robes of Transmutation
  3. The Worm's Raiment
  4. Hiti's Hearth
  5. Gossamer

Then you want to combine it with one of the following (try to avoid two sets with double recovery bonuses) :

  1. Curse Eater
  2. Crafty Alfiq
  3. Willpower + Grand Rejuvenation + Precise Regeneration

Finally, you want to pick a monster set between the following options :

  1. Nightflame
  2. Earthgore
  3. Sentinel of Rkugamz
  4. Symphony of Blades

Any of the following sets are better suited for Support roles  :

  1. Sanctuary
  2. Ebon Armory
  3. Meritorious Service

Skills Explanation

  • Repentance: You want to use this skill anytime there are players or guards’ corpses on the ground. The heal provided by this skill is actually insanely good and is one of the main reasons why templars are always on top of the healing meter.
  • Radiating Regeneration: You want to initiate an engagement with this heal and to reapply it every 3 gcds or so.
  • Illustrous Healing: Since you run Olorime, this skill is going to be the main way to proc it. You want to cast it ahead of the group, so players get Major Courage as they run into the area.
  • Breath of Life: This skill should be used in two specific situations. When a single player call for help or to save yourself. Also keep in mind that Breath of Life is no longer a smart heal and has been a directional cone heal for quite some time now. Make sure to direct it at the player who needs assistance.
  • Blessing of Protection: This ability is used during multiple scenarios. First is when multiple people are struggling to move in the back of the raid or if the group is getting bombed and several health bars are fluctuating at the same time. Another reason to use this skill would be if the raid gets negated under incoming damage. You can also use this skill in your rotation to apply Minor Resolve to 4 players.
  • Practiced Incantation: Remembrance is also an option if you actually die using the other morph. Near 30k health with Minor Toughness, you should be fine. Since this ultimate is stationary, you have to anticipate the direction of the leader and position yourself ahead. Use the ultimate during a push inside a breach, or when defending against an enemy group. Cancel it when you find yourself behind the group. Catch up as fast as you can to the front of the group using Elusive Mist.
  • Race Against Time: The main reason to use this skill over Elusive Mist Form is to be able to move throught Negate Magic and Root Spam. Keep in mind that without Elusive Mist Form, your healers and support players have to assist you with burst heals and wards when you get chained or teleported away from the raid or you will die.
  • Channeled Focus: Use this skill anytime you think you are going to stay in place for more than 2 seconds. Especially when flipping flags inside a keep. Remember to stand inside the rune for that extra 50% resistances. Wise to use before your ultimate since it also provides you with Minor Mending.
  • Extended Ritual: Use this skill for the same reasons as Channeled Focus. This skill provides your group members with a strong synergy that remove all harmful effects. Reapply as much as possible during heavy siege situations. The healing potential also got buffed significantly with the Scalebreaker update.
  • Living Dark: Use a buff tracking addon to keep Minor Sorcery up for you and your group. Recast every 20 seconds.
  • Solar Prison: I personally would not recommend using this skill unless you run with at least 3 templars. The healing ultimate is too important in most scenarios.
