Welcome to’s Templar Healer PvE Build, Dawn’s Light, for the Elder Scrolls Online! This build is intended for PvE of all kinds: trials, veteran dungeons and general PvE.

This is my build for the Templar healer. As many players know, the templar is the most widely accepted healer in the game. This class offers many utilities as well as offering some of the best heals in the game. Many high-end trials groups will not even consider taking you into the group if you are not a templar. Now I am not the end-all be-all expert on the templar healer, but this is my main class/role.

If you need to use some other gear while acquiring the final setup, the following is a viable list of sets to choose from:

Crafted Sets: Armor of the Seducer, Magnus’ Gift

Dungeon Sets: Sanctuary, Worm’s Raiment, Spell Power Cure

Monster Sets: Chokethorn, Sentinel of Rkugamz, Troll King, Earthgore, Domihaus

In the perfect world, we have both Worm and Sanctuary ready to go in our bank/inventory and Spell Power Cure always on. There are other options, but this is going to be for newer players to either the game or the class. A set that I have not tested but I have a good feeling about would be Jorvuld’s Guidance. You would run this in conjuncture with Spell Power Cure.


All points into magicka.

Other Important Info

Buff Food

Witchmother’s Potent Brew (Max Health, Max Magicka, Magicka Recovery)


There are only two actually decent mundus choices for healing, and it comes down to if you need the magicka regen that the Atronach gives you. If you do not need the magicka recovery, then you should be using the mage, every time.


With race, you have three options when it comes to having passives to support playing as a magicka based healer, those are: Argonian, Breton and High Elf. The Bretons and High Elves are great because they offer max magicka. Argonians are great too because they have a flat buff to healing, so you don’t exactly need to have to have a huge magicka pool.

If you find yourself struggling to manage you magicka in dungeons, I would strongly recommend going with a Breton. Bretons offer not only the flat percentage buff to your max magicka pool, but they also offer magicka cost reduction.

For the players who think that they may want to dual role as a healer or a dps, you should think about playing as a High Elf. High Elves are great because they offer the percentage max magicka but also offer some nice magicka regen. They also have a passive buff to all elemental damage, making them the healer that can do the most damage.

Argonians are the seemingly worst of the three, without any large passives to buff their overall magicka or resource cost reduction it may seem odd that they are even in contention for a Templar Healer. But what the Argonian offers is a nice flat increase to healing given, as well as received, not to mention the increased max health and done.

Overall, Argonians are the best healers, but they are a less forgiving to play than their Breton and Hight Elf counterparts.


When healing I don’t ever find myself using any special potions, especially when playing as an argonian. Healers don’t need extra crit, they don’t need extra spell power nor do they need anything super fancy. Just run the standard trash magicka potions and save your money.


Class Passives (all), Light Armor (all), Heavy Armor (all non-5 piece requiring passives), Destruction Staff (all), Restoration Staff (all), Fighters Guild (Banish the Wicked), Mages Guild (all except persuasive passive), Undaunted (all), Racial (all), Alchemy (Medicinal Use)

Tips & Misc.

For this build you don’t have a rotation on the front bar, you need to apply your backbar and then sit on the front bar to keep your team alive.
