2H Stamina Templar PVE

Lightbane is a 2h Stamina Templar DPS PVE Build and an alternative way to play as a Stamina Templar in ESO, since it is using a Two Handed weapon instead of Dual Wield. Lightbane is a 2H Stamina Templar PVE Build capable of completing almost every PVE content in-game. The Build offers different setups, depending on the type of gear you wish to wear and the difficulty of the content!

If you are a new player, you can take a look at my Templar Beginner Guide. For a Dual Wield Stamina Templar PVE Build take a look at Light Warrior.

If you are looking for a Solo PVE Build for Arenas like the Maelstrom Arena and Vateshran Hollows, take a look at my Stamina Templar Solo Build.

You can find more Builds in the Templar Builds page.
