Table of Contents


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. You can also find plenty of other Stamina Templar content on the website such as:

Other Stamina Templar Guides:

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 to the previous Version

Stonethorn DLC U27, updated the gear setup and Champion Points.

Resource Management

As a Stamina Templar the most important thing is to keep up your Restoring Focus. This will increase your sustain and damage mitigation.

Repentance can be used to drain dead bodies for resources.

Energy Orb will always be present in a good group. When you get close to the Orb you can activate its synergy to regain resources.

Potions should always be used on cooldown to gain the maximum benefit from them.

Heavy Attacks help you restore Stamina, if you drop low on resources do a few Heavy Attacks between skills to refill your Stamina.

  • Restoring Focus
  • Orbs or Spears from Healers
  • Heavy Attacks
  • Potions
  • Repentance

Trials & Dungeons Setup


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.

This setup is for those that did not have the chances yet to step into a trial.

  • Briarheart Dagger: There is an unique Dagger “Materre’s Bodkin” that you can get fairly easy, instead of buying it expensive in the store.

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.

Champion Points

If you need optimized defensive Champion Points for a specific trial I recommend checking out my Maximize Damage Mitigation in Trials Article.

Champion Points [810]

The Ritual
64 Mighty, 48 Thaumaturge, 66 Precise Strikes, 6 Piercing
The Atronach
72 Master-at-Arms, 14 Physical Weapon Expert

The Steed
81 Ironclad, 43 Spell Shield

Please note that the Piercing perk in the Champion Points Ritual Tree depends on your raid setup. Always ask your raid/group leader how much points you should place in Piercing. This depends on many factors such as debuffs and buffs, some raids may have more and therefore need less points in piercing, or the other way around.

In optimized group setups it may also be better to run Nirnhoned/Precise instead of Nirnhoned/Sharpened because you might have already reached the penetration cap of 18200.

Important Info for Stamina Templar Build PvE


Depending on what race you have choose one of these two buff foods. If you do not have the money for Artaeum Takeaway Brooth, then you can also use Dubious Camoran Throne Drink.

Braised Rabbit with Spring Vegetables (Max Health+Max Stamina)
Artaeum Takeaway Broth (Max Health+Max Stamina+Stamina Recovery+Health Recovery)
Dubious Camoran Throne (2nd option if you can not afford Artaeum)

Food buff

Mundus Stone

The Shadow (Increased Critical Damage)


If you want to learn more about the different racial passives that each race offers, check out my Race Guide which explains everything in detail.

Orc (with Artaeum Food)
Redguard (with Blue Food)
Wood Elf (with Blue Food)
Khajiit (with Artaeum Food)
Dark Elf (with Artaeum Food)
Imperial (with Artaeum Food)


Weapon Crit Potions 
(Weap dmg, Weap Crit, Stamina)
(Blessed Thistle, Dragonthorn, Wormwood)

Weapon Power Potions

(Damage Poison, Damage Poison)
(Fleshfly Larva, Nightshade, Nirnroot)

double health poisons



All into Stamina


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.

Endless Hail > LA > Ritual of Retribution > Weapon Swap

LA > Barbed Trap > 8x Biting Jabs > Weapon Swap


  • LA = Light Attack
  • Activate Power of the Light whenever it exploded, keep it up all the time if possible.
  • Deadly Cloak should be reactivated after it runs out, that way you keep the Blackrose Prison Dual Wield Set buff up all the time.

Area of Effect Setup

This setup here is focusing on an AoE setup, this way you can be more effective when fighting trash packs or just a large amount of monsters.
