KNIGHTMARE

Stamina Templar Solo PVE Build

by Hack The Minotaur

The KNIGHTMARE Build is a unique look at the Stamina Templar, integrating strong abilities and sets to fill in the gaps and create a perfect solo build. No trials or DLC gear is required!

Primary Sets

Our main damaging set for this build is Night Mother’s Gaze, which provides the Major Fracture debuff to enemies automatically when we do critical damage. This pairs very nicely with our main spammable Biting Jabs which does AOE damage and increases our Critical Strike chance. In terms of a defensive set, Knightmare debuffs all enemies with Minor Maim, reducing their damage done to us. Finally, Sellistrix does great AOE damage and a free AOE stun, making it a great compliment to this build’s impactful style.

Consumables, Race, Mundus

Race

I prefer Orc for this build, due to the extra Weapon Damage, Health and Stamina. Another nice option will be the Nord for the extra damage resistance and ultimate generation. For more details on all ESO Races and passive bonuses be sure to check out our Full ESO Race Guide.

Companions

If you like playing Solo, this build can benefit greatly from using Companions! This Solo build will benefit the most from the additional healing and buff options a healer focused Companion can offer, so if you are going to use a Companion I would suggest a full healer build for them. I recommend Mirri Elendis for Companion on this build with the set up below. More information on Companions Builds and Skills can be found in our detailed Companion Guides section.



Recommended Gear

  • All Light Armor - Quickened Traits

  • Restoration Staff


Recommended Skills

  1. Blood Transfusion

  2. Crimson Font

  3. Rejuvenation

  4. Mystic Fortress

  5. Reverse Entropy

  6. ULT. Impeccable Shot


Additional Skills

The skills below may also be helpful in other situations such as trash pulls.
