Valkyrie is a powerful Magicka Templar PVP Build for Battlegrounds and Open World PVP. The Build has several tools to buff, debuff, heal and of course destroy your targets. It can be Magicka hungry so patience and caution is required.

Focus on the rotation, weaken the enemies and buff yourself before closing the gap for the kill. Avoid overextending yourself and dominate the battlefield.


Apply Living Dark and start the fight with Degeneration to boost your Spell Damage. Continue with Purifying Light. Close the distance with Toppling Charge and finish the enemy with Puncturing Sweep. Use Radiant Oppression to execute low health enemies.

Harness Magicka to shield yourself, Radiating Regeneration and Honor the Dead to heal youself and your group. Crescent Sweep is a good offensive Ultimate, especially against multiple enemies.

Light’s Champion is the Build’s main Ultimate. A strong heal that can also buff your group.
