Introduction

Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Templar Healer PvE Build, Holy Light, for the Elder Scrolls Online! This build is intended for PvE of all kinds: trials, veteran dungeons and general PvE.
Templars are a synergy machine and have powerful heals to back that up, making them one of, if not, the strongest healing class in the game. The Templar has been regarded as the best healer in the game for some time now, only recently have Wardens come close to the power level of Templars.

Setup

Gear

Gearing is really simple and complex at the same time. As a starter healer you will have many options for gear so it may seem overwhelming, but this guide will give you many different combinations so you can pick whatever combo is convenient for you, as well as what fits your playstyle.

  • Overland sets: Bright-Throat’s Boast
  • Crafted sets: Seducer, Shacklebreaker, Kagrenac’s Hope,
  • Dungeon sets: Jorvolds, Sanctuary, Spellpower Cure, Worm’s Raiment
  • Monster sets: Nightflame, Sentinel, Symphony of Blades,
  • Trials sets: Healing Mage(mending), Infallible Mage, Vestment of Olorime

Gear Traits:

Jewelry are best left as arcane, and all body pieces are best as divines. It is optional to have the legs and chest as infused, as it has similar performance to divines.

Enchants:

All armour pieces will be magicka, with one or two health if you are under about 17k hp. If you have infused large pieces you may use Tri-Stat enchants on them in place of health enchants.  The backbar lightning staff should use a shock enchantment, while enchantments for the restoration staff are mostly preference. Most common is absorb magicka for sustain, or increase weapon damage for bigger heals.

Below you can find an example of two different gear setups, one for end game and one for beginners!

Tips & Misc.

Generally you will not have a rotation as a healer. However you should be thinking about your buff timers as well as debuff timers. With the new Master’s Staff and changes to orbs, it is best to spam springs while all buffs and other heals are active in order to proc the passive from the weapon.  If you do not have a Master’s Staff, combat prayer is a good spammable heal. Most importantly, do not forget to throw an orb and renew elemental drainevery 20 seconds to help your team maintain resources.
