Welcome to’s Stamina Templar DPS PvP Build, the Paladin, for the Elder Scrolls Online! This build is intended for PvP of all kinds: battlegrounds, Cyrodiil, dueling, and Imperial City.  This build can be played in both CP and no-CP pvp without any changes to the build!

This build is a medium armor setup that offers absolutely massive damage.  While I do really enjoy heavy armor on my stamina templar, after doing my initial play testing,  I think a medium armor build is more my style, and this build fit the bill perfectly. You have good mobility due to being in medium armor, good defenses from having the back bar shield, race choice, monster helm and Evasion, and monstrous damage due to teh rest of our gear choices. The high weapon damage also gives us really good heals as well. All in all, this is a really well rounded medium armor stamplar setup that will serve you well!

Keep in mind that PvP builds are very personal.  This is what worked for ME.  If you don’t like something about it, change it to fit your playstyle.

Gear Choices

Automaton: This set is amazing for stamina templars, and a favorite by many for good reason. With how much of our damage is physical, we get a ton of benefit from this set!

Bone Pirate: For stats and sustain, it’s hard to beat Bone Pirate.  You just need to make sure your food/drink buff is a drink to utilize the 5 piece, which we are getting through Dubious Camoran Throne.

Blood Spawn: Amazing set for medium armor stamina Templar – every benefit this monster set provides we can utilize. The biggest thing though is the resistance benefit we get from this – it gives us a ton of extra tankability in medium armor, so it allows us to get insanely high damage we want out of the rest of our gear sets.

Tips & Misc.

  • Your burst combo is Biting Jabs > Dizzying Swing > Dawnbreaker > Executioner (optional). This can very easily 100-0 someone if you land it at the right moment.
  • This build is tanky due to major evasion, Blood Spawn, Sword and Shield and the Nord passives, but it’s still a medium armor build. Be sure to utilize your dodge roll as effectively as possible to maximize mitigation. Also, if you’re taking a lot of heat, be sure to cleanse yourself, apply vigor, refresh rally and kite around so all of your HoTs/HP Recovery can heal you back up.
  • Be sure to always maintain Rally, Restoring Focus and Shuffle to optimize the tankiness and damage the build has to offer.
  • One thing you need to get used to as a stamina templar is heavy attacking. While light attack weaving is good when you want to put big damage on an opponent quickly, you will be heavy attacking a lot with a stamplar, so make sure you practice and utilize heavy attacks to their fullest potential.
