Magicka Templar Solo PVE Build Elder Scrolls Online

Magicka Templar Solo

Table of Contents


Welcome to my Ultimate Magicka Templar Solo PVE Build for The Elder Scrolls Online.

The Build is designed for players that prefer to play Solo, challenging themselves in any type of PVE content. You can use it to defeat Overworld Bosses, farm Public Dungeons, complete 4-man Dungeons in Normal or Veteran Difficulty and Solo Arenas like Maelstrom Arena and Vateshran Hollows.

Thanks to the Templar’s unique skills, the build is putting emphasis on survivability. You have access to several tools to heal yourself and destroy your enemies.

For an all around Magicka Templar PVE Build take a look at Holy Fire.

If you are a new player, you can take a look at my Templar Beginner Guide.

You can find more Builds in the Templar Builds page.
