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.

Other Important Info

Buff with your potion for Immovability, then Channeled Focus (stand in it when you can), and Rapid Regen for passive healing. Cast Structured Entropy and Vampire’s Bane for the passive heals and DoT’s, and cast Purifying Light to start building your burst. Get in range with Toppling Charge and spam Puncturing Sweep, using Toppling Charge when needed for CC and to help close the gap. Use Crescent Sweep when you can for a big burst of damage, a strong DoT, and doing 60% more damage to enemies in front of you. 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 resources back.
