Introduction

Welcome to DottzGaming.com’s Magicka Templar PvP DPS Build, the Warpriest, for the Elder Scrolls Online!  This build is mainly focused towards CP campaigns but, with some additional practice, can survive without the CP bonuses if you prefer that.  If there is something you would prefer to use over what I’ve said here because you prefer it, use it by all means. A build should be fun for you to play so you don’t just get bored.

Rotation

FRONT BAR: Once in range, spam Dark Flare until they’re at 50% and then use Radiant Glory for the execute, weaving in light attacks when you can. If they get in close use Flame Clench to make them back up and if they persist, spam Puncturing Sweep instead for the damage and self-heals. Use Ice Comet when you can because it can drop an opponent pretty quick and the slowing effect can help against both single targets and groups.

BACK BAR: Buff with Channeled Focus and apply your Healing Ward. Cast Degeneration on your opponent for the damage and the chance at some healing. If you get low on health, play defensively by shielding up again and use Honor the Dead to get your health back up. If they try to debuff you or snare you, use Ritual of Retribution to remove the debuffs while healing yourself and damaging your enemies. If you get low on your health or magicka, use Temporal Guard to get them back. Use your potions when you get low on health or magicka as well, or if you need to get Immovability.
