ESO PVP Builds

Deadlands has launched on the live servers! New sets & builds need to be tested before I can update the site. This will take 2-3 weeks so that a decent build will be posted, and in case some early patch changes occur. Visit my Patreon to see the work in progress on the new builds!

Magicka Templar

Updated for Waking Flame

Magplar gets buffs to Purifying Light this patch, and together with the already hard-hitting Crescent Sweep this build will deal some serious burst damage while still providing good pressure, survivability and mobility.

    • Bloodspawn instead of Magma Incarnate
    • Clever Alchemist instead of Olorime

Open World NoCP

(To be added soon)

Magicka Templar (Battlegrounds)

This build is from Markarth, but should still work perfectly well in Battlegrounds in Flames of Ambition.

Like many magicka classes, templar will perform at its best with proc sets in Battlegrounds. This is why this build will revolve heavily around them, especially because the magplar’s own offensive toolkit will lack in comparison. The magplar’s own healing power will be boosted by Crimson in this build, which will create a nice bit of additional AoE burst and a strong heal.

Character

  • Race: High Elf or Breton. The remainder of this build is based on a Breton, a High Elf will need more Magicka Recovery glyphs on the jewelry.
  • Attributes: 64 Magicka, 0 Health, 0 Stamina

Buffs

  • Mundus: The Lover
  • Vampire Stage 3

Consumables

  • Food: Bewitched Sugar Skulls
  • Potions: Essence of Immovability (Magicka + Health + Immovability)
  • Poisons: Double DoT poisons on the frontbar.
