Magicka Templar Solo
Welcome to my Ultimate Magicka Templar Solo PVE Build for ESO. 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 offers great survivability with several tools that can help you heal yourself and destroy your enemies.
If you are a new player, you can take a look at my Templar Beginner Guide. For an all around Magicka Templar PVE Build take a look at Holy Fire.
