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.

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 cast Channeled Focus (stand in it when you can). Cast Degeneration and Vampire’s Bane on your target for the Major and Minor Sorcery, chance at healing, and DoT’s. Get in range and spam Puncturing Sweep, using Flame clench when needed for CC. When they’re under 50%, cast Radiant Glory to execute them. Use Ice Comet at the start when you can, and always use Flame Clench before it so it will connect. If you get low on health, play defensively on your backbar by healing and cleansing with Mutagen and Ritual of Retribution. Weave light attacks whenever possible, and use Temporal Guard as needed to avoid enemies and/or get resource back.
