Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Magicka Templar PvP DPS Build, the Warpriest, for the Elder Scrolls Online! This light armor build is meant to hit hard and sustain easily while still being tanky enough to carry you through some tough fights. Although mainly meant for CP campaigns, it can be used in Non-CP campaigns and Battlegrounds.

Buff with Channeled Focus before combat for your Major Resolve and a passive 480 mag recovery. Use RAT to get in range of your target and buff with minor force, then swap to your front bar and apply Purifying Light to start your burst and get minor sorcery. Then apply Vampire’s Bane and Degeneration to help build the burst and give you Major Sorcery and Major Prophecy (and refresh your minor sorcery). Close the gap and get a stun with Toppling Charge and start spamming Puncturing Sweep until your Purifying Light goes off. Use Crescent Sweep whenever it’s available, especially if the target is low, as it can really help a Purifying Light burst as well as hitting hard on it’s own. This also gives us a 60% damage increase against targets in an 8 meter radius for 6 seconds. Drink your potion whenever your resources get low.

For defense, swap to your backbar and use Rapid Regen as a strong HoT to start getting your health up, as well as Honor the Dead for a great burst heal. Use Extended RItual whenever needed to cleanse negative effects and get a nice AOE HoT. Use RAT defensively as well, as the major expedition and snare/immobilization immunity combined with our cleanse makes getting away much easier. Temporal Guard is mostly there for the minor protection, but if you’re in a tight spot and have it available, it can get you out quick and clean.
