Type: Dungeon, Trial, Arena & Overland

Table of Contents


Introduction

Welcome to the Stamina Templar Build PvE “Jabsmania” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. The Jabsmania Build is optimized for Trials, Dungeons & Maelstrom Arena.

We are using a Dual Wield & Bow setup, as it provides the most damage output in Dungeons, Trials and Arenas. Templars can provide Minor Fracture and Minor Breach debuff through Power of the Light which increases the groups dps by quite a bit. The build also has very high Single Target and AoE damage and can sustain well.

  • Dual Wield & Bow setup
  • Medium Armor
  • High Stamina resource pool
  • Good sustain
  • Crazy AoE damage
  • Crazy Single Target damage

Changes from the previous version

Changed gear, champ points, skill and rotation for the DRAGONHOLD DLC.

Backlash:

  • This ability and its morphs’ final explosion can now Critically Strike.

Puncturing Strikes:

  • This ability and its morphs will now properly be considered Direct Damage attacks rather than a hybrid of Direct Damage and Damage over Time. Note that some item sets may still erroneously trigger from the attack, and will be fixed in a future update.

Resource Management

As a Stamina Templar the most important thing is to keep up your Restoring Focus.  You also want to make sure that Spears or Orbs are used by your healers to activate the synergy for resources. As a Redguard/ Wood Elf you can use Blue Food and the other races should use the Gold Food. Your main resource return tool are heavy attacks. They restore a huge amount of stamina and can be easily implemented into the rotation.

  • Restoring Focus
  • Orbs or Spears from Healers
  • Heavy Attacks (optional)
  • Repentance

Trials & Dungeons Setup

Gear

You will find 3 different setups here. Setup 1 is the preferred setup. For people that do not have all the gear yet can use the Setup 2 which is easier to obtain and beginners can use Setup 3.

  • Setup 1 is with Trial Gear
  • Setup 2 is without Trial Gear
  • Setup 3 is for Beginners

There are a lot of good Stamina Sets available, you can find more viable stamina dps sets in this Stamina DPS Sets Article. I also elaborate on specific sets that are often used in this article to give you a bit more insight as to why they are used.

Gear Setup 3 Beginner

This setup is dedicated to people that have not had the chance to farm the necessary gear for the maximum damage potential. All the gear here is either craftable or cheap to get in a guildstore. Make sure to ask a friend to craft Hunding’s Rage and Night Mother’s Gaze. Agility jewelry can be obtained in the Guildstores. I do recommend having around 18k health (with buff-food). You can buy cheap Agility jewelry with healthy trait to reach this value if you want.

Rotation

In case you don’t know what 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.

Rotation

This is a semi static rotation that evolves around Power of the Light.

We always apply our 10 second DoTs together:

Arrow Barrage > LA > Poison Injection > Weapon Swap

LA > Rending Slashes

Ritual of Retribution is applied every 2nd rotation after you use Arrow Barrage.


Other than that we keep spamming Biting Jabs till Arrow Barrage runs out and repeat the whole thing. The last thing you also want to keep up is your Minor Force Buff, you should keep it up all the time or also apply it every 2nd rotation.

  • Use Ultimate whenever it is ready
  • LA = Light Attack
