Introduction

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.

Passives

All class passives, racial passives, light armor passives, heavy armor passives (that dont’ require 5 pieces worn), medium armor (windwalker, improved sneak, athletics), undaunted passives, destruction staff passives, restoration staff passives, mages guild passives, psijic order passives (except orbs), banish the wicked & bounty hunter (fighter’s guild), assault passives, and the last 2 support passives.

Rotation

NOTE: IN PVP A FULL ROTATION ISN’T ALWAYS POSSIBLE. THIS IS JUST ADVICE ON HOW TO BEST SET YOURSELF UP FOR SUCCESS.

Buff with your potion for Immovability, then Channeled Focus (stand in it when you can), and Rapid Regen for passive healing. Cast Degeneration and Purifying Light on your target for the Major and Minor Sorcery, chance at healing, DoT’s, and to build up your Purifying Light burst. Get in range and spam Puncturing Sweep, using Aurora Javelin when needed for CC and to help close the gap. Use DBoS when you can, and use Aurora Javelin to stun your opponent so it’s easier to close the gap and to damage them.  If you get low on health, play defensively on your backbar by healing and cleansing with Rapid Regen and Extended Ritual. Weave light attacks whenever possible, and use Temporal Guard as needed to avoid enemies and/or get resource back.
