Magicka Templar Solo PVE ONE BAR Build

by Hack The Minotaur

The GOD MODE Build is a Solo Magicka Templar build for ESO that showcases the ultra powerful Templar class in its most simple form - a one bar build. This build is strong enough to complete almost any solo content (and even some group content) in the game with just a few skills, including Veteran Maelstrom Arena. A two bar build will be included as well if you want to expand on the build.


Primary Sets


Overwhelming Surge provides great damage that easily procs from our main spammable ability, Puncturing Sweeps, and also restores magicka back to us when doing damage. The extra sustain from this set can be a life-saver, as this essentially means you can spam Puncturing Sweep non-stop!

Light Of Cyrodiil is an amazing defensive set which also synergizes well with Puncturing Sweep, since this is considered a channeled ability. This set reduces our incoming damage by a whopping 15%!

Finally, you can never go wrong with a Damage Shield set on a solo build, which is why we are using Mother Ciannait, which also gives us magicka back when the shield breaks.

Light Of Cyrodiil

Set bonus
(2 items) Adds 129 Spell Damage
(3 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Magicka
(4 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Magicka
(5 items) While you are casting or channeling an ability, your damage taken is reduced by 15%. When you are interrupted, your next Magicka Ability will cost no Magicka.

Overwhelming Surge

Set bonus
(2 items) Adds 1096 Maximum Magicka
(3 items) Adds 129 Spell Damage
(4 items) Adds 129 Spell Damage
(5 items) When you deal damage with a Class ability, you have a 33% chance to surround yourself with a torrent that deals 1040 Shock Damage to enemies within 8 meters of you every 1 second for 6 seconds. 15% of the damage you deal this way is restored to you as Magicka. This effect can occur every 6 seconds.

Mother Ciannait

Set bonus
(1 item) Adds 1096 Maximum Magicka
(2 items) While in combat, casting an ability with a cast time or channeling an ability grants you a damage shield that absorbs 5000 damage for 6 seconds. If the damage shield is broken, you restore 600 Magicka. This effect can occur once every 6 seconds.


Alternative Sets


Alternative 5 piece sets that will work well on this build include: Mother’s Sorrow and Spinner’s Garments. For the monster set you can also use Iceheart which has exactly the same damage shield, but has Critical Chance instead of the bonus Magicka sustain.

(3 items) Adds 833 Spell Critical
(4 items) Adds 833 Spell Critical

Consumables, Race, Mundus


Race

High Elf is my favorite race for this build because they have reduced damage while channeling abilities - this works with our main spammable, puncturing sweeps! And of course they have extra spell damage and max magicka. Other magic-based races like Breton, Dark Elf, and even Khajiit will still work, though.
