Welcome to the Stamina Templar Build PvP “Piercer” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. The Piercer Build is optimized for Battlegrounds, but also works in Cyrodiil.

This build is a full medium armor setup with Draugr HulkBone Pirate's Tatters and Set not found. The build is very bursty because of how Power of the Light works. We apply pressure with Blood Craze (which gets amplified by Master’s Daggers), then apply Power of the Light and use Biting Jabs till the Power of the Light explodes. This will kill most targets, Power of the Light is unblockable so the damage can not really be mitigated, unless it gets purged off the enemy. The sets we use both boost our Max Stamina which increases the damage of our Power of the Light. Sustain is also covered as we have very high Stamina Recovery and due to medium armor also a lot of cost reduction. You want to make sure to cleanse a lot of negative effects with Extended Ritual, which cleanses up to 5 negative effects at once. With medium armor and some Well Fitted traits, we can also dodge roll quite some attacks without running out of sustain.

  • Optimized for Battlegrounds
  • Dualwield & 2H setup
  • Medium Armor
  • High stamina resource pool
  • good sustain
  • Strong burst combo

Changes from the previous version

No changes to the build in the Elsweyr Chapter.

Resource Management

Dubious Camoran Throne Drink is the Drink we use in combination with Bone Pirate’s Tatters, this gives us a lot of Stamina Recovery. Other than that make sure to use Potions on cooldown and do Heavy Attacks when you drop low on Stamina.

  • Dubious Camoran Throne Drink
  • Heavy Attacks (optional)
  • Potions
  • Redguard Passive (If available)
  • Repentance

We are running full Medium armor Draugr HulkBone Pirate's Tatters with Stinging Slashes. For Battlegrounds I found that 4 Impenetrable and 3 Well Fitted traits work best. You want to make sure to dodgeroll quite some attacks.

  • Restoring Focus: Keep it on the ground all the time as it gives you a lot of extra stamina recovery.
  • Remembrance: This ultimate is very strong, we only use it in defensive situations. We gain Major Protection and heal us and allies for a lot. Usually almost invincible while this is running. While casting we also get a lot of resources back as we have quite a lot of Stamina Recovery.
  • Rally vs Forward Momentum: I found Rally to be better due to the burst heal, I usually can cleanse most snares and roots with Extended Ritual.
  • Bloodcraze vs Rending Slashes: If you like the heal, keep Blood Craze, if you like the Snare to land Jabs better, then use Rending Slashes.
