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.

Templar’s have a lot to offer in the healing role. While other classes can do it well, none do it quite like the Templar. Their abilities and passives suit the healer play style extremely well, and they are the most popular healer for a reason. Their builds are relatively standard, and this build will show you how to set up your healer for success in all levels of end-game group PvE content.

Gear Notes

Spell Power Cure: I still think SPC is a great healing set for this patch, it offers a lot of group damage when your teammates are successfully overhealed.  If you have the Summerset Isles chapter, feel free to replace this with Olorime.  I think both sets are great and you cant go wrong either way.

Sanctuary: This set brings the healing potential of the Templar to a whole new level, increasing the healing received of everyone around you by 12%. Another replacement for this set if you want to use something else is Jorvuld’s Guidance, which makes your buffs’ duration really long, or you can use Worm for better group sustain in magicka-heavy groups.

Earthgore: Now that we can run a monster set on healers, Earthgore is perfect for that spot.  Adds a lot of healing when healing severely injured party members, making it much easier for you to heal back up a group of players who are low on HP. If you dont have access to Earthgore, Nightflame is a viable replacement.


All points into magicka.
