The Battery – ESO Templar Healer Build

Welcome to The Battery Build page, a healer build for The Elder Scrolls Online using the Templar class.


Table of Contents

Updated on April 12, 2016 for Thieves Guild ESO 2.3.9.

PvP Healer Build HERE


To create a simple, fun and effective healer for The Elder Scrolls Online.

Healing is still my favorite role in ESO and in large part because you don’t just ONLY heal. You do damage, execute the boss and defend your allies.  It’s active fun and truthfully, a lot easier than other MMO’s.  Why?  Well we as Templars can give back resources both stamina and magicka on demand AND we can heal without Line of Sight via Breath of Life.  Even though it only heals two players now, it’s still the most powerful heal in the game.


5. Pre-Fight Buffs – If you want to get a good leg up on the fight about to unfold, make sure you have a solid plan to buff your allies beforehand.  Meaning, get Heals over Time (HoTs) rolling via Rapid Regeneration, lay down your Extended Ritual for 25% more healing, fire up Proxy Det for massive AoE burst and hit Combat Pray right as your allies go into the fray.  Getting a good start, will help with a good finish.  Practice your pre-fight buff rotation.

4.  Position – Remember you’re the healer, AKA the Co-Captain of the defense.  Make sure you tell other players where to stand and why prior to fights.  Why?  Well when they stand in red and die, they will blame you anyways.  It’s my job to know the fights, tell people about it and what to avoid.  Less healing I’m doing, more damage I do, faster the fight goes.

3.  Communication – It’s perfectly okay to say “Jimmy, please don’t stand in red by that Gargoyle.”  EVERYONE has and will step in red or do something be accident, it just happens.  Most of the times, people just don’t know the mechanics of the fights and how to avoid damage.  You the healer need to tell them.  Also, if someone is taking an excessive amount of damage, find out why.  “John, you’re taking a lot of damage have you ate your food, repaired your gear, etc?”  I’d rather have an offended John then constantly wipe in the dungeon over and over.

2. Damage – This is ESO NOT another MMO, healers do damage.  Your goal as a healer is to do the most damage possible and heal secondarily.  People laugh when I say this, but it makes dungeons a breeze if you think offensively first.  No I’m not saying don’t heal, just realize that you should be providing damage in between buffs and heals.  That leads me into my last and favorite tip for new healers.

1. STOP OVER HEALING – STOP IT, if everyone is at 100% health, stop casting Breath of Life.  I’m okay with reapplying your buffs a little early, but there’s no need to constantly heal when everyone is alive and well, do damage instead.  YOU CANNOT HEAL A MOB TO DEATH though I’ve seen a great many healers try.  Constantly think “can I do damage right now instead of healing?”  If the answer is yes, do damage.  An example of this is let’s say my party is taking damage and 3 of us are at around 70% health. If my HoTs are up, Ritual is down, I don’t heal.  I use my next second to throw a Spear, recast Purifying Light or something offensive.  If their heal continues to drop, then I heal.  Why is this important?  Most builds have some type of healing already built into them so you don’t need to constantly top them off, HoTs will do that.  Burst heal with BoL when someone drops drastically then find out why.  If you make this one change, you’ll be the best healer in your group.


The Battery Skills for Thieves Guild


Dual Wield (Swords) – For extra spell power, our main bar for healing, damage and execute.

  1. Inner Light (morph of Mage light | Mages Guild skill line) – This is a must have due to the major critical bonus, max magicka and recovery.  Note, that this no longer needs to be double slotted and we put it on our primary bar only.  If you have extra magicka, you can toggle it once prior to a fight to get an Empower (20% more damage on the next attack) for a powerful Shooting Star.  Once cast, the Shooting Star will also proc another Empower which you can use on Blazing Spear.  This is for trash pulls (non boss pack of mobs) where you just need everyone to do damage up front.  Even as a healer, you’ll nuke stuff.
  2. Purifying Light (morph of Backlash | Dawn’s Wrath skill line) – A great damage tool that has can heal nearby targets for a good duration.  I constantly keep this active to proc more ultimate, more spell power and it can solely keep my tank and melee allies alive.  If you’re not using this, you need to.
  3. FLEX – Radiant Oppression (morph of Radiant Destruction | Dawn’s Wrath skill line) – One of the best finishers in the game though you should use it around 30% no higher.  I still use this as a healer, why?  Well things need to die and if my HoTs are rolling I’ll help burn the boss down.  Just make sure to block/cancel this if someone healths drops below 50%.  Practice clicking block during a beam so it becomes natural otherwise you’ll lose some allies during finishing phase.
    • Elemental Drain (morph of Weakness to Elemental | Destruction Staff skill line) – If you’re healing a Trial like AA, Hel Ra, or SO you’re probably going to be ask to run more buffs.  In this case, I carry a Destruction Staff on me for magicka users weaving in and out attacks.  It’s extra important in the latest Trial where fights last much longer.
  4. Blazing Spear (morph of Spear Shards | Aedric Spear skill line) – Monster AoE with a great synergy.  I prefer this morph over the added magicka bonus (more damage, less problems).  Puncturing Sweeps is more damage but the added utility is too much for me to pass up.  I even spam this in single target situations and my damage does fine.
  5. Breath of Life (morph of Rushed Ceremony | Restoring Light skill line) – The best healing ability in the game, period.  Make sure to not over use this, when allies are at 80% no need to BoL.  When someone drops low, say below %50 now BoL.  It’s an expensive heal, so when it doubt try to let your HoTs do the work over spamming this.
  6. Shooting Star (morph of Meteor | Mages Guild skill line) – I use this on my primary bar for extra magicka and regeneration.  You can even slot Barrier (Alliance War) for 10% more magicka recovery if you’re struggling.  I’ll use this in trash pulls but during boss fights, the damage reduction via Nova is too powerful to pass up.

Restoration Staff – Meant for buffs and defensive ultimate.

  1. FLEX – Proximity Detonation (morph of Magicka Detention | Alliance War Assault skill line) – An absolute AoE juggernaut and good single target damage too.  I play more offensive so casting this prior to a pull ensures a good start to our teams damage.  I’ll recast this in between buff phases when everyone is topped off.  I consider this our flex spot on bar two so if you don’t have it, or want more utility swap it in and out.
    • Channeled Focus (morph of Rune Focus | Restoring Light skill line) – A massive boost to our sustained.  If you’re low in Champion Points or want more defense, use this skill.
  2. Extended Ritual (morph of Cleansing Ritual | Restoring Light skill line) – This ability got a massive boost in healing power due to the Focus Healing passive.  You get 25% more healing while staying in your Ritual and for 8 seconds after.  Plus it does a HoT which adds up to our overall healing power.  Lay this down prior to a major pull and keep it up 100%.  Major Mending is too good to pass up.
  3. Repentance (morph of Restoring Aura | Restoring Light skill line) – One of the best abilities in the game, making almost all PvE content require a Templar.  Give you a free heal, stamina for everyone and regeneration for having it slotted.  The way to use this is repent every 1-3 corpses.  On my build this can crit heal everyone for 8k with Major Mending up.  That is only with one corpse!  Now image two or more.  Don’t wait until the fight is over to use this, use it every body or so.
  4. Rapid Regeneration (morph of Regeneration | Restoration Staff skill line) –  A powerful 16 second HoT that can also give back magicka via the Maelstrom Staff.  Remember you’ll have to spam cast this 2 or more times depending on your parties size but make sure to get HoTs rolling pre and during fights.
  5. FLEX – Combat Pray (morph of Blessings of Protection | Restoration Staff skill line) – A decent heal with a monster damage boost though consider this your flex spot especially if your DPS are Nightblades are using Grim Focus (same buff).
    • Sipirt Siphon (morph of Force Siphon | Restoration Staff skill line) – Another major boost to magicka build sustained, this skill gives us magicka return off hit similar to Elemental Drain.  If both are up, magicka builds can sustained indefinitely with a  little regen and potions on cool down.  Consider using this when healing a Trial/Raid.
    • Harness Magicka (morph of Annulment | Light Armor skill line) – Useful flex spot for Imperial Prisons final boss or anything with massive magicka damage.
  6. [Ultimate] Solar Prison (morph of Nova | Dawn’s Wrath skill line) – A super powerful damage mitigation ultimate with a synergy that wrecks face for any Templar in my opinion.  If you need more healing or you’re running out of magicka constantly, flex in Remembrance on bar one, but you need Nova on bar two.

Important Passives

  • Burning Light and Piercing Spear (Aedric Spear) – Burning Light adds tons of damage to spears/sweeps and Piercing Spear even adds to our critical heals.
  • Prism and Illuminate (Dawn’s Wrath) – Faster ultimate generation is a must along with boosting allies spell power.
  • Mending (Restoring Light) – This gives bigger heals the lower our allies health making it optimal to only use BoL on low health friendlies.
  • Focused Healing (Restoring Light) – a must have due to Major Mending in combination with Ritual to make our healing insane.
  • Restoring Light — Take them all, it matters.
  • Light Armor — Take them all, again its helpful.

Gear The Battery Gear chart for Thieves GuildThe Battery Gear Picture for Thieves GuildOption 1

  • Worm’s Raiment Set (AKA Worm Cult)- We can now obtain VR16 version of this set via Maw of Lorkhaj on normal mode.  This is the uber set for group utility, 5% reduced magicka for everyone (including you).  It’s expensive and hard to get but worth it if you want Best in Slot (BiS) healer gear.  Go with all divines traits if you can and I like one regeneration on my jewelry and two spell damage.
  • Spell Power Cure – The second BiS setup due to its duration (now 10 seconds) and damage increase to your party.  With these two sets combined, you will provide an absolute monster boost to your parties DPS and sustained giving you the name Battery.
  • Torug’s Pact – Go with double swords for more spell damage alone with Precise traits for healing only (Nirn if you want to do DPS too).
  • Maelstrom Staff – I like precise as well, just make sure you charge this a lot prior to each dungeon run as Rapid Regeneration will proc it a lot.

Option 2

  • Engine Guardian – Sustained and stamina matter greatly in Update 7 and I highly recommend considering Engine Guardian.  Not only does it flood you with resources, but you can use the corpses as a free Repentance heal. Obtained by completing Darkshade Cavern Veteran mode final boss, and Shoulders through Undaunted pledges.
  • Kagrenac’s Hope – 8 trait craftable set found in Fighter’s Guild Earth Forge (after completing story).  This is soooo helpful I cannot begin to tell you the power that in IC, you get spell power for the five piece.  I even use this as a DPS set and enjoy it’s benefits.
  • Willpower Set – Monster magicka and spell damage comes from this set though it can be hard to find.  Obtained through Veteran Dungeons and Treasure Vaults.

Champion Points


I do a four way split between Elf Born (spell crit strength), Thuamaturge (DoT damage), Elemental Expert (flame and magic damage) and Blessed (healing).  I do not go hog wild into Blessed and Elfborn because I’m offensive minded.  Yes you can get 40k Breath of Lifes, but does anyone really have 40k health anyways?  You have to kill bosses, not heal them.


I do 40/40/40 in Hardy, Elemental Defender and Thick Skinned with the left over points 47 into Quick Recovery.  Is this the best setup? No idea but it works for me.


I do an even split between reduced cost and recovery (83/84).  Some say to go heavy into reduced cost but when I try I don’t have the same sustained.  This works for me.


  • Race Choice – 1) Breton for reduced cost and max magicka 2) High Elf for max magicka and recovery 3) Dunmer for max magicka and flexibility if you wanted to play something else.
  • Werewolf or Vampire – I don’t see a point for either with this build, could you? Sure, but I don’t mess with it now.
  • Attributes – Since our gear doesn’t have any added health, I put 10 points into health and the rest magicka with magicka glyphs.  I like around 18k health or 20k but remember, more health you have, the less damage and healing you’ll do.  There’s no point in a 40k health healer.
  • Mundus Stone – I prefer the Thief for extra criticals.  This works well if I switch to DPS as well.  For pure healing potential, the Ritual is a great choice but it doesn’t effect our damage.  Those struggling with resources should try the Atronach or the Mage.
  • Food and Drink – Go bi-stat to get the most magicka as possible.

    Nice guide, thanks.

    • Pdeizel on April 26, 2016 at 2:03 pm

      Deltia, on console if you do not double bar inner light/mage light you will not receive bonus. Same goes for repentance. I’ve tested this repeatedly.

      • arckaine647 on April 26, 2016 at 2:28 pm

        The effect is applied to the bar you are currently on, regardless of being on console or PC (I am on XB1). Your HoT crits will be calculated based on the character stats at the time of the tick, not from the stats at the time of casting. This is the same mechanic as DoT abilities. Instant abilities will obviously be calculated based on the character stats at the time of casting. As it is a baseline game mechanic, platform will have no effect on the use of these abilities whatsoever.

        • Pdeizel on April 26, 2016 at 3:26 pm

          Yes but you don’t benefit from repentance added regen on both bars. So it makes sense to double bar it. Repentance gives you a bonus just from having it slotted. As does inner light. I double bar repentance but I don’t inner light.

          • Arckaine647 on April 26, 2016 at 3:39 pm

            The way I read it is Repentance was only meant to be on one bar and was not being used for the slotting passive. The slotting bonus was only a perk. The free heal and instant Stamina for stam deeps is the only reason I use it.

        • Pdeizel on April 26, 2016 at 3:29 pm

          The reason I said this is deltia says you do no need to double bar these.. is he saying this because active effects do not disappear if you weapon swap now?

          • Aren on May 10, 2016 at 5:32 pm

            He said you dont need to slot light twice because its no longer a toggle pre patch on swap toggles needed to be recasted not the case for light any more as the crit is a sloted passave and repentance is not being used for its sloting passave it is being used for free stam and heals

    • reel on June 8, 2016 at 10:54 pm

      Hey Deltias love your guides. Specialy this one.
      Got a question what Do you think about the lich set for healing. Obviously it is behind worm Set an and and spellpower cure. Butter what Do you think?

      • Deltia on June 10, 2016 at 1:52 pm

        The Lich? Monster sustain set? I don’t know, might be okay but I wouldn’t use it over Spell Power Cure or Twlights.

  2. R. Burke on September 9, 2015 at 10:59 pm

    Hey Deltia,
    I’m not sure I understand why you chose dual wield, especially since i don’t see you using any of the skills for dual wield on your bar? I have a vr7 templar and I use destro and resto, but mainly want to focus on healing. Can you tell me why you chose that?
    Thanks so much, already using two of your builds now, stam sorc, and the specter, you are freakin awesome!!!

    • Deltia on September 10, 2015 at 10:42 pm

      More spell power.

      • J.Ram on October 5, 2015 at 4:04 pm

        Didn’t they nerf that delta? No longer get anything from the dual wield?

        • J.Ram on October 5, 2015 at 4:04 pm

          Deltia…. Stupid autocorrect

        • Deltia on October 5, 2015 at 8:31 pm

          Nope, it’s still good.

          • @GeraltOfRiviaGDL on October 11, 2015 at 10:31 am

            Hi Deltia, I don’t think dual wield provide more damage for spell power, it seems in many case that 2H is better. Look at this and tell me what you think. Thanks and bye! 🙂

          • Deltia on October 13, 2015 at 4:23 pm

            Yeah that math people out there suggest Two-Handed after 40,000 magicka.

          • @GeraltOfRiviaGDL on October 13, 2015 at 4:30 pm

            Thanks for your reply. 🙂
            If you read well that post he says that it’s not only if you have 40000+ magicka, if you do that math, you will find that could be more viable also if you don’t have that amount of magicka. Read also the answer that he gave to me. 😉
            Ty again for your reply, I really like what you do! 🙂
            p.s. I’m planning to run magicka NB with Julianos+torugs, when dlc comes out.. I jusy wonder how could I do with no magicka regen on any gear piece.. how would you solve this problem? Bye mate!

          • Sam on October 13, 2015 at 5:55 pm

            The author details a 4-step process to determine whether using a 2H Sword or DW 1H Swords is more beneficial. I added the steps and equation below, but I am thinking that the 40k Magicka is an over-simplification that does not take any buffs or passives into account. The author also notes that this only applies for damaging abilities and not straight healing abilities (besides the healing-for-damage-done abilities like Puncturing Sweep).

            1. Unequip your weapon(s) and apply buffs (food, potions, skills, etc.)
            2. Open Character sheet and record Magicka and Spell Damage
            3. Calculate (0.05 * Magicka) + (0.525 * Spell Damage)
            4. If result of calculation is greater than 2035 use 2H Sword, else use DW 1H Swords.

            I see this as a topic much like how we both feel about attribute points, Deltia. Simplifications just don’t work all the time as there are a lot of factors involved.

          • shayne on October 15, 2015 at 2:33 am

            deltia just wanted to ask why so many things are wrong…such as channeled focus is not in the resto skill line
            im just trying to fix me build as the crtit% are not nearly what they used to be with your omega healer ..iyt still works but not as good. im going to trying this as it does not take many more skills and i can try again in dngns and pvp

        • Bayan Riazati on March 1, 2016 at 1:50 am

          No… it didn’t

      • tim on October 26, 2015 at 1:58 am

        how do i get spell power on weapons

      • tim on October 26, 2015 at 2:00 am

        how do i get spell power on weapons
        which runes do i use to get that

        • Deltia on October 27, 2015 at 11:53 am

          Can’t, typo.

          • arckaine on October 27, 2015 at 12:54 pm

            I was using the Rage glyph on one of my DW, and it wasn’t doing much in the way of improving anything regarding spell power. I decided to go with a shield glyph instead since I tend to solo play or roll with players with less knowledge or skill (tanks running with 2H and werewolf, or DPS rolling non-crit builds with DW daggers and resto staff….wtf??) and the shield gives me much more survivability coupled with points in Bastion. I can solo most 3rd tier elites in upper craglorn with full set of light armor and a broomstick backup on the xb1.

          • Nolphi on October 29, 2015 at 3:31 am

            Hi Arckaine,

            That is a good suggestion actually. I got no enchants on my dual wield nirn swords. I suppose to trigger the shield I would need to swing and connect a hit though, correct?

      • Rich on October 29, 2015 at 3:48 pm

        It says power on one of the weapons how do you do that?

        • Deltia on October 31, 2015 at 2:48 pm

          That’s a typo, use magicka return.

    • WowItsYoda on December 9, 2015 at 4:33 pm

      They say use dual wields when healing because your spell damage goes up, therefore healing and doing damage more than you would with a staff, Ex my current spell damage is 5500 with a resto staff, but once i switch bars to my dual wield my spell damage increases by roughly 300-500 so it gives you an extra boost, Nobody knows if that was intended when the game launched but they never changed it so we assume it was put there for a reason. I currently use it with my Vet Healer and it really is helpful in that last ditch effort for magic

      • Motnvol on February 12, 2016 at 5:59 am

        How do you get 5500+ spell damage? I’m no where even close on my templar plz help

        • Azurhalo on March 8, 2016 at 10:55 am

          I can’t get anywhere close to 5500 spell damage. I have no idea how this could be. Even buffed with major and minor soecery…

    • Shortdawg123 on December 19, 2015 at 4:39 am

      It is because the dual wield gives a more powerful spell power when you compare it to any other weapon its kinda crazy

    • Bayan Riazati on March 1, 2016 at 1:49 am

      He used dual wield because with dual wield you get more spell damage. The higher your spell damage is the better your heals are. if you want to heal for an insane amount more and be more significant as a healer to other players then I recommend this build

    • Ryan on April 25, 2016 at 3:03 am

      U get more spell power with dual wield, why? No one knows

      • KhajiitHasWares on May 27, 2016 at 8:36 pm

        Two swords
        Make both torugs pact
        Now you have more spell damage

      • KhajiitHasWares on May 27, 2016 at 8:39 pm

        If you have torugs pact on dual wield that gives you the 2 item benefit of spell damage without sacrificing other gear pieces

  3. Delushin on September 9, 2015 at 11:57 pm

    Thanks for the update mate, having geared myself for VDSA and VDungeon farming pre IC the guide above will help me redirect my farming focus for consile IC drop!

  4. Sarah on September 10, 2015 at 12:38 am

    no structured entropy?

  5. Russ on September 10, 2015 at 1:58 am

    No structured Entropy?

    That Appreciate mundus stone though! X)

  7. Maxokaan on September 10, 2015 at 5:04 am

    Is this for update 7 or just for imperial city? Because I won’t be getting the IC DLC.

    • Deltia on September 10, 2015 at 10:49 pm

      Has other changes in it that will effect you and the content is IC.

  8. Liviu on September 10, 2015 at 7:50 am

    Quick question: wouldnt the Mage Guild ultimate be better for the dps bar also due to the passive abilities of Mages?
    Thanks otherwise 🙂

  9. Noodles_994 on September 10, 2015 at 8:33 am

    Awesome builds dude, will we get a video of this?

    • Noodles_994 on September 10, 2015 at 8:47 am

      never mind……i just found it 😀

  10. David on September 10, 2015 at 12:49 pm

    Are you going to finish the omega templar build leveling tutorial? I started that build and now I’m lost being new to ESO on console. I’m level 39 now and don’t know what other abilities to unlock.

    • Deltia on September 10, 2015 at 10:50 pm

      Just work towards the VR skills and leveling skill lines.

  11. Loryn Becker on September 10, 2015 at 6:09 pm

    I really like your build, but I’m confused on your Champion Point choice of having 80 points into Bastion. The only skill it looks like you could use it for is the Replenishing Barrier that sits on your sideboard. Is there another purpose of Bastion that I’m missing?

    • Deltia on September 10, 2015 at 10:51 pm

      No that’s pretty much it, also for the passives for resurrection. You can go with Quick Recovery for self heals, but the other passives aren’t really worth much.

      • Russ on September 23, 2015 at 3:48 am

        are going make 1-25 build for this

      • Lionnel on February 22, 2016 at 5:31 pm

        How about putting cp into Elemental Defender

      • Ali on March 8, 2016 at 12:58 pm

        Hi deltia please could you make a levelling guide like on your NB build (ex. 1-10 10-25 25- above) tqsm this will really help new players like me :DDD

  12. Lionnel on September 11, 2015 at 11:01 am

    Hi, I already had the skills figured out quite the same, but the gear seems interesting. I am using 4 healer (3 accessories), 4 martial knowledge rest torugs pact. Will kagrenacs hope improve that?
    Of course, will power might take a while to get.

  13. Lionnel on September 11, 2015 at 11:04 am

    Oh right, what does this sidebar is supposed to be?

  14. Daniel on September 11, 2015 at 1:50 pm

    You have stolen my Sorc build! Change to Molag Kena for the head/helm and then use destro + dual daggers. Alternatively use Torug head with Kena shoulders for builds that don’t weave.

  15. Billy on September 11, 2015 at 4:27 pm

    Thinking of going for tanking build for a Breton Templar build. Is that a good choice? Or should stick to healer?

    • Deltia on September 12, 2015 at 11:45 pm

        Deltias – so I have a vr1 templar healer and went vamp for magicka and stamina buffs am also a dunmer so I was wondering how if the Phoenix set via IC would be sufficient then a five piece warlock til I get the healer set ?

  16. Unse on September 12, 2015 at 4:50 am

    Hi deltia will there be an update for bloody butcher? 🙂 thanks

  17. Sc4rdex on September 13, 2015 at 8:49 pm

    Deltias, why no more worm cult and healer set? Why do u think is the new set better for group than worm cult?

    • Deltia on September 14, 2015 at 12:21 pm

      Because it only goes to VR14.

  18. koet on September 13, 2015 at 11:53 pm

    Hi… i have a Little problem whit my magicka temp dps… i cant do more of 11k dps.. i have 2500 spell damage…31k magicka… 20k hp… but why my dps its so low?

  19. Lionnel on September 14, 2015 at 8:39 am

    Hi, I did wonder, do passive skills from a skill line only work, if I have an active skill from that skill line slotted?

    • FeralGoose on September 17, 2015 at 2:16 am

      Some do some do not. It will say ‘With a (Skill line here) ability slotted.’ or ‘While using (skill line) abilities.’ when you’re thinking bout buying that passive.

  20. Noodles_994 on September 14, 2015 at 5:04 pm

    Deltia, Awesome build once again. The main problem i seem to be having is when i got all light arm i find that im just way too squishy (currently at vet 2) how can i get round this?

    • Aren on April 14, 2016 at 1:03 pm

      The updated vertion of the build with hot effects running i only ever have survivability problems of im being focused by the boss or 4-6 mobs at once the tg vertion of this build works rly well imo

  21. Brian on September 14, 2015 at 5:38 pm

    Deltia do i have to beat cadwells gold to unlock the 8 trait kagrenac hope craftable set?

  22. Brian on September 14, 2015 at 7:40 pm

    I answered my own question thanks.

  23. Pearce on September 16, 2015 at 3:16 am

    Hey Deltia,

    Love the guides you have put out for templar, i was looking at twin beams and wanted to mix it with this build as i roam pvp with two friends (stamina DK and Sorc (frag out))…

    Would it be viable to change purifying light for binding javelin, change blazing spear for luminos shards or dark flare and change solar prism for soul assult?

    I was also thinking sun sheild instead of rune focus.

    I was wondering what your thoughts on this may be.

    • Deltia on September 16, 2015 at 12:14 pm

      You sure can change all of those things if it fits your playstyle.

  24. caleb on September 16, 2015 at 3:29 am

    Hey deltia big fan, i was wondering when you were going to bring the bloody butcher back for update 7 dying to know about the changes.

    • Deltia on September 16, 2015 at 12:14 pm

      Oh yes, check out my video from yesterday.

  25. Joch on September 16, 2015 at 4:36 am

    Hey Deltia! Thanks for the awesome guide, really helpful!

    I’ve been wondering for a while now, what’s this sidebar you’re talking about? Am I missing some important addon?

    Thanks again

    • Deltia on September 16, 2015 at 12:18 pm

      Nothing, just a way to say you’ll need to swap in and out abilities.

  26. Joch on September 16, 2015 at 12:48 pm

    Thanks 🙂

  27. khufu on September 16, 2015 at 2:03 pm

    I’m curious, why would you take erosion which provides no heal benefit over elfborn which would provide benefit to heals and damage?

  28. Jake on September 16, 2015 at 6:01 pm

    If I don’t have any spell power potions, would u recomend getting rid of a skill for entropy, or just forgetting about that buff. If u recomend getting rid of a skill then which one?

  29. Brandon on September 17, 2015 at 7:28 am

    Hey Deltias, I was wondering would going Sword and shield maybe be a better benefit? I’ve been using your guide and im a lvl 32 dunmer atm or should I stick to dual wield

  30. sumhaigai on September 17, 2015 at 3:08 pm

    The 20,000-22,000 health you advised to aim for is that with food?

  31. Dan Artt on September 17, 2015 at 6:32 pm

    Hi Deltia! Huge Fan! Any future for another IMPERIAL UPDATE build for Templar on perhaps a viable DPS or Tank alternative.

    Thank you!

  32. Dan on September 18, 2015 at 3:19 pm

    With the nirnhoned swords do you only get the bonus from them when there active or are they always there?

  33. Lord McSwagger on September 19, 2015 at 10:49 pm

    Hey Deltia, Great site! Was wondering which dungeons the willpower rings can drop from?
    Cheers, Swagger

    • Deltia on September 22, 2015 at 1:00 pm

      Any dungeon last boss.

  34. Kat on September 20, 2015 at 10:37 am

    So, I’m trying out your build and it looks pretty effective. But I went to make glyphs and I don’t think you’re able to make a glyph for spell power for weapons? I was wondering if that was a typo? Please advise.

    • Deltia on September 22, 2015 at 1:09 pm

      No typo

      • Sam on September 24, 2015 at 4:18 pm

        Is it the Glyph of Rage? I’ve seen a couple discussions where it was proposed that the Rage glyph increases both weapon and spell damage by [x] amount for [y] time.

      • Ella on September 26, 2015 at 8:40 am

        If not a typo then what is the glyph? There’s not a spell power glyph for weapons. I spent about an hour confused out of my mind, searching the internet and asking guildies.

        Your video says no enchants on the swords. Why not put that instead of spell power (which doesn’t exist).

        • Sam on September 29, 2015 at 1:07 pm

          After looking around the past couple days, I am thinking it IS the Glyph of Rage. Reports I am seeing (albeit, from year old posts) show that:
          1) Healing spell “damage” is based off Weapon Damage and Magicka, not spell power.
          2) “Power” in the Rage enchant may apply to both Spell Power and Weapon Power at the same time.

          Seeing conflicting reports, combined with my inability to test the ideas (console user), is very confusing… which forces me to rely on reports from my favorite twitch/youtuber for answers.

          • Kfro on September 29, 2015 at 6:58 pm

            Yes it does increase power but still requires you to use a melee attack to get the benefit from the glyph if using it on duel wield swords.

          • Sam on September 29, 2015 at 8:05 pm

            Even if it does require a melee attack to procc, weaving in light attacks and it activating on two weapons…. that’s beast mode right there.

  35. Lord McSwagger on September 20, 2015 at 5:43 pm

    Hey Deltia,

    How the heck do you get your spell power so high? I have enchanted ring set and Torugs pact swords and I am just at 2400… Add in the 200 for kagrenacs and you get 2600… What sort of magic do you wield?

    • Deltia on September 22, 2015 at 1:08 pm

      Whats your Mundus stone?

      • Lord McSwagger on September 22, 2015 at 1:49 pm

        The Apprentice.

  36. Azam on September 21, 2015 at 1:51 am

    I love following your builds, I have one question, will using two daggers/swords with nirnhoned trait will give the same amount of spell damage compared to using nirnhoned destro staff ?

  37. Brando on September 21, 2015 at 7:21 pm

    Hey Deltia, just curious as to why you choose swords over daggers? Does the increased damage apply to damage and healing spells?

  38. Nolphi on September 22, 2015 at 2:13 am

    Hi Deltias, can you provide another option for people who cannot craft Kagrenac yet? With the popularity of those sets crafters are taking advantage and I dont want to spend too much on v15 gear that I will need to redo anyway once I have all the mats to go v16

    • Deltia on September 22, 2015 at 1:53 pm

      Magnus will do just fine.

  39. Talm on September 22, 2015 at 3:14 am

    Confused about 2 swords. Couldn’t you get the same spell power from Torug sword and shield? (or is to absorb more magic with 2 absorb magic glyphs on the swords?)
    (thanks for all your great guides)

  40. Tyler on September 22, 2015 at 9:12 pm

    How do you feel about running engine guardian, 5 seducer, 5 warlock with this build? With the enchants being the same?

    • Deltia on September 23, 2015 at 2:55 pm

      Magicka for days but underwhelming healing potential.

  41. SgtSnuffles on September 23, 2015 at 7:18 am

    Hey deltia. I’m trying to figure out what glyph you have on your one sword. It says spell power but I have no idea what the rune combination is for that because I didn’t even know it existed.

  42. Azam on September 23, 2015 at 8:08 am

    thanks, but can you tell me about the attribute points ?

  43. Chunkybros on September 23, 2015 at 9:28 am

    What do I do if I don’t have thos shoulders and helm??

  44. Chunkybros on September 23, 2015 at 9:28 am

    I need the help

  45. Jay on September 23, 2015 at 4:17 pm

    Hey deltia great write-up. Quick question, I tried using necrotic orb to generate ultimate out of combat with no luck. Is the energy orb morph the only way to do that, and what exactly causes that to work? Is it the heal?

  46. Scinful on September 24, 2015 at 2:27 am

    @Chunkybros – I would probably make them Torug’s pact until I got the Engine Guardian.

  47. derek on September 24, 2015 at 6:25 am

    does the critical rate affect heal over time “ticks”?

  48. Nolphi on September 24, 2015 at 1:25 pm

    Hi Deltias, some others have also asked why 2 swords and not 2 daggers or a combination of mace/sword/dagger. I am about to craf the v16 weps for this build. I also got problems with sustain so far with this build. I am planning to place magicka drain on my dual wield in case I am forced to swing at it. Good idea or better to just swap bar and start normal attacks?

  49. Protato10 on September 25, 2015 at 8:47 am

    Hi Deltia, I was just wondering that when you get the spell power cure pieces, will you use that instead of kagrenacs or is kagrenacs the best for this build?

    • Deltia on September 26, 2015 at 12:37 am

      Yes, I’m missing the gloves of spell power cure is all.

  50. G on September 25, 2015 at 8:32 pm

    Hey Deltia.
    Wondering if dual wield is worth putting points into, for example ruffian gives dmg bonus when attacking stunned, immobilized, disoriented, or silenced enemies, so if I spam Puncturing Sweep it would help?

    • Deltia on September 26, 2015 at 12:39 am


    • Kfro (Mod) on September 28, 2015 at 11:39 pm

      No because the tooltip of the passive states that you must use a duel wield ability to get the benefits from the passive. The only passive you should use is twin blade cause that does give a boost to spell dmg and controlled fury if you are using quick cloak in pvp/some pve fights.

      • Sam on September 29, 2015 at 8:36 pm

        Twin Blade and Blunt would be beneficial as well, for weaving and DPS gains.

        • Kfro on September 29, 2015 at 9:32 pm

          Twin blade and blunt already gives you a spell dmg boost anyway.

  51. Nony on September 26, 2015 at 3:57 am

    What glyph do you have on your main sword for this build? There is no such thing as a Spell Power glyph for weapon. For jewelry yes, but not for a sword.

    Can you please clarify?

    • Kfro (Mod) on September 28, 2015 at 11:33 pm

      There are no spell power glyphs for weapons since with the swords because you won’t be using melee attacks against enemies and only magicka attacks so you won’t recieve any benefit from the glyph.

  52. Smokin on September 26, 2015 at 4:33 am

    Delta you mention skills for a side bar. i am on xbox one and dont understand what sidebar you mean

    • Kfro (Mod) on September 28, 2015 at 11:30 pm

      What he means by side bar is that skills he would swap onto his bar depending on what type of fight. For example, magicka heavy fights will call for using annulment over another skill on your bar.

  53. Jason on September 28, 2015 at 3:23 pm

    Hey great build! I noticed one issue, I think Rune Focus / Channeled Focus is on the Restoring Light skill line instead of Restoration Staff.

  54. wollschaaaf on September 29, 2015 at 9:09 pm

    Hi, I really love your builds. Is there an alternative to the engine guardian set?
    And I’d like to know why you are choosing only light armor instead of light+ 1x medium + 1 heavy?
    Can you please explain why you prefer swords instead of daggers?

    Thanks a lot 🙂

  55. james on September 30, 2015 at 7:02 pm

    I dont mean to accuse you of hacking or anything, but your non buffed spell damage with you resto staff equipped is way higher than it should be. I get the extra spell damage from dual wielding and its passives, but in the video you switch back to resto staff and your spell damage is 2446.

    To put that in perspective, I have the exact same gear as you – only its V16 and gold and my resto staff spell damage is nowhere near that much. Something is wrong here.

    • Deltia on October 5, 2015 at 8:25 pm

      Mundus stone?

      • Sgt Snuffles on October 6, 2015 at 7:50 pm

        ^^ditto. I run 2512 with resto myself.

  56. Mystogan on October 3, 2015 at 11:19 am

    Quick question, my templar is currently in an imperial (first ever/crafter) for enchanting you mentioned go all health but would you suggest for an imperial?

    • Deltia on October 5, 2015 at 8:26 pm

      For Templar healing? I’d def going with Magicka. Is that what you’re referring to?

  57. Cody on October 5, 2015 at 8:21 pm

    What exactly are the sword enchants. I almost have this build complete, but I’m confused on the enchants for swords.

    • Deltia on October 5, 2015 at 8:42 pm

      I don’t really swing but you could do magicka return or the new prismatic.

      • Cody on October 5, 2015 at 8:57 pm

        You don’t swing? I’m sorry, I just don’t know what glyph to use lol. Can’t seem to find a weapon enchant for that, only jewelry.

  58. Krixxuss on October 6, 2015 at 2:05 am

    Okay so I’ve followed this build down completely I believe and when I am DW my crit is lower than when my Resto staff is out. What am I missing?

    • Kfro on October 6, 2015 at 4:58 am

      What is your crit? I main a templar healer/dps and my spell crit is always 42%.

      • Sgt Snuffles on October 6, 2015 at 7:48 pm

        For higher crit run precise on swords and run inner light on both bars. If you have the light armor passives maxed then you should hit 48% crit.

  59. […] Breton […]

  60. Sgt Snuffles on October 6, 2015 at 7:46 pm

    Okay, so in your build you run engine guardian helm and shoulders. After finally getting the helmet, I’ve realized it’s just not as helpful as everyone makes it out to be. With my vet 16 Breton Templar I run everything the same but I wear molag kenas shoulders for spell power and a torugs pact hat. I run torugs dual wield swords and torugs resto staff as well. So when I switch I keep the spell damage buff. While in dps mode, I gain 1k health. The engine guardian set just doesn’t do anything for those that don’t have problems with resource management. Running 2803 spell damage I buffed, 32k Magic and 25k health is much better for pve and pvp than what the engine guardian set offers. This is just my opinion though. Play style is a big consideration on it too I guess.

    • Sgt Snuffles on October 6, 2015 at 7:47 pm

      2803 spell damage unbuffed

      • Nolphi on October 10, 2015 at 2:41 pm

        I hear what you’re saying. I just finished the entire gear set by completing Engine Guardian and swapping out my Torugs. It actually nerfed my spell power when I am on staff quite a bit at the same time I cant run my dual wield bar too long for lack of sustain.

    • SuperSquidMonkey on October 14, 2015 at 9:56 pm

      Mr Snuffles, I am very interested in the gear you are running and your enchants. how are you getting these super high numbers?

  61. Chris W on October 10, 2015 at 5:25 am

    What is the weapon spell damage glyph ?

    • Deltia on October 10, 2015 at 4:42 pm

      There is none.

  62. Derry on October 10, 2015 at 9:20 am

    which duel weld passives should i take ?

    • Deltia on October 10, 2015 at 5:26 pm

      The last one.

  63. miteba on October 12, 2015 at 8:42 am

    Great build Deltia ^^ I have a question though… With this build is very simple to change from Healer to DPS focus! In PVP wouldnt be better to use the “reinforced trait” over the “infused & Divines”? Isnt your physical resistance very low if you encounter someone with high DPS? Continue the good work 😉

    • Deltia on October 12, 2015 at 1:14 pm


      • miteba on October 12, 2015 at 9:49 pm

        Thanks for the reply 🙂 It answered my question!

      • Cory on October 20, 2015 at 6:30 am

        Hi deltia whts the best way to find healer sets or magic ks sets or do they need to be bought

        • Deltia on October 20, 2015 at 1:20 pm

          Crafted or Dragonstar Arena.

    • Kfro on October 12, 2015 at 6:43 pm

      In PvP impen is really nice against critical hits but infused and divines will give you more of a magicka pool and or spell damage to hit those higher heals. Plus constantly reapply channeled focus/combat prayer for major resolve and major ward. Plus with combat prayer you and your allies will gain minor berserk which increases damage by 8%.

      • miteba on October 12, 2015 at 10:00 pm

        Along the way i have tried different magicka builds with light & heavy armor, with infused & impenetrable traits, so i have a notion. But with veteran 16 “somewhat rare drops” mats, i obviously want to study the best possible combination, because collecting 150mats per piece is …. uff :p I hope Orsinium have a better drop rate in that matter …

  64. Enias Curatio on October 14, 2015 at 8:11 am

    Hi deltia. Thanks for this great build. I’ll try it but i’ve a newbee question:
    What you mean with restoration in secondary weapon? Which weapon is it?
    Do you mean a healing wand?

    • Kfro on October 14, 2015 at 9:12 pm

      What he means that there are two weapon bars, the front and back bar. Your primary bar would be duel wield (primary use bar) and your secondary bar would be resto staff (secondary use bar).

  65. Duckbutta on October 16, 2015 at 3:59 am

    I’m trying to decide between altmer and breton. I was told that altmer is the way to go, as templar class skills benefit from the altmer racial bonus, but I’m not so sure this is true. It seems to be that the skills are mag dmg, and not ele, and I don’t plan on using a destro staff. Anyone have thoughts on this?

    • Deltia on October 18, 2015 at 2:34 pm

      Altmer if you plan on being a DPS, Breton if you want pure healing.

  66. Joseph on October 16, 2015 at 11:01 am

    Why did you go all light rather than 5 piece light, 1 heavy, 1 medium to take advantage of the passives in those categories?

    • Deltia on October 18, 2015 at 2:39 pm

      Higher magicka pool more healing.

  67. Chunkybros on October 18, 2015 at 10:36 am

    @ deltiasgaming is there a way to implament vamp to this build. I saw you running vamp on the video you put out today you said “you were a vamp”. Is there any way to be a vamp in this build?

  68. Doug Johnson on October 19, 2015 at 4:03 pm

    In the dual wield skill line, the last passive “Twin Blade and Blunt” gives a bleeding effect to axes. Does this bleeding effect count as a DoT?

    • Deltia on October 19, 2015 at 6:38 pm

      I ‘think’ so.

  69. Mythanix on October 20, 2015 at 1:55 am

    Great site! Thanks for breaking every thing down and explaining it all.

    In champion points under the Lord you have 80 points in bastion for damage absorption, what exactly does this help? Don’t see any shields in this build so I must be missing something.

    Also, could you clarify which is better, spell cost reduction or magika recovery, saw you split your points between the two.

    Keep up the great work.

    • Deltia on October 20, 2015 at 1:18 pm

      Barrier if you use it, mostly for the passives.

      Two splits because of diminishing returns, meaning you’re most likely to get more benefit with a 50/50% rather than 100% in cost reduction.

      • Sam on October 20, 2015 at 1:27 pm

        Wouldn’t Bastion also improve any damage shields you might receive from other party members as well? Or just personal shields?

  70. Joann on October 22, 2015 at 6:24 pm

    No points in spell shield and no nirnhoned armor? I know they nerfed the nirnhoned trait, but I would think spell resist/nirnhoned should be in this mix somewhere?

    Even if not primarily PVP, it’s impossible to do sewers or ic without any pvp in mind.

  71. Chris on October 23, 2015 at 11:10 am

    For a completely new player to the game on PC, which build and guide would you recommend someone to follow? I would like to experience everything the game has to offer, especially group content. Thanks

    • Deltia on October 24, 2015 at 2:04 pm

      I’d go with Omega Templar High Elf.

  72. Kronis on October 24, 2015 at 1:13 pm

    Wonderful as usual. Could you pls provide an in order to have a general look of all abilities and skills? 🙂 thx a lot

    • Deltia on October 24, 2015 at 1:59 pm

      Click the skill bar.

  73. Chris on October 25, 2015 at 4:52 am

    Thanks for the tips – just something that is a bit confusing, is it easy to switch between omega dps and heal setup and later switch the omega healer to this if I wanted?

  74. Duckbutta on October 26, 2015 at 4:18 am

    I’m a bit confused by the weapon enchantments. For Weapon 1, it says “Spell Power” but I don’t think there are spell power enchs for weapons. For Weapon 2, it says “Magicka Return” but I think that should only proc when you attack with the weapon, and you’re never attacking with your swords, right?

  75. Lord McSwagger on October 27, 2015 at 1:30 pm

    Hey Deltia, I love this build.

    When IC was dropped I immediately constructed this and I love it. I have made a couple minor changes that I thought I would share.

    First: Dropped Engine Guardian set in place of Molag Kena helm. The extra spell damage was worth it IMO.

    Second: I dropped Dual Wield for 2 handed Great Sword. With this gear, the calculations worked and damage skills like puncturing sweeps hits much harder.

    I have found that I do rely more on potions for regen and resource management (Alchemy skill at 50 with Medicinal Use) since getting rid of the engine guardian, but honestly Tony (my engine guardian sphere) isn’t really missed.

    I also find this build a bit more versatile for moving into PVP.


    • Deltia on October 28, 2015 at 1:14 pm

      Nice changes, thanks.

    • Nolphi on October 29, 2015 at 3:17 am

      Hi Lord, these were my thoughts exactly and I plan to do the same and then just swap gear based on the circumstance. I was also even planning to add a nirn shield to that gear so I can swap one sword for shield when needed.

    • Dekrypt on January 27, 2016 at 8:43 pm

      I was under the impression that a 2 handed sword did not increase healing but damaging spells as opposed to dual wield swords that apply their damage and sp buffs to healing spells. For DPS it is better but the research I have seen shows 2h is not for healing.

  76. Chris R. on October 29, 2015 at 5:44 pm

    Hey Deltia, I was hoping to get your opinion on swapping any of those abilities with Lingering Ritual. With Breath of Life ready for emergencies, wouldn’t the less magicka cost and more heal be worth the cast time of lingering ritual used in conjunction with Clensing Ritual?

    • Deltia on October 31, 2015 at 3:30 pm

      I don’t use clap heal a lot but I know others like it. If it works for you, use it. I don’t like that it’s not instant.

  77. Adam on October 29, 2015 at 7:32 pm

    I was pretty impressed with myself as a Vet 3 healer Temp as i read through this and realized that I’m pretty much becoming a clone of this. awesome build. Go us!

  78. Mosher-- on October 30, 2015 at 8:51 am

    Hey Deltia,
    (If you have Support Level 6) I really recommend using Barrier. This way you dont need to heal for a while and you can still do heavy attacks and keep your teams buffs up. Helped me out a lot more than Remembrance. Barrier costs a lot more ultimate but I noticed that I was saving up Remembrance anyway for the right time to use it.

  79. Lee Bussey on November 3, 2015 at 12:40 pm

    Hey Deltia! Love your builds, I was just wondering if your current “The Battery” build for a templar healer is current for the upcoming Orsinium DLC? I imagine it will still be very similar, but I was wondering if there were any changes you were going to make.

    • Deltia on November 3, 2015 at 2:32 pm

      Yes it’ll still work fine for group play.

  80. Owen on November 8, 2015 at 10:35 am

    Greetings Deltias.

    Would you recommend Heavy Armor for our Templar?


    • Deltia on November 9, 2015 at 4:47 pm

      For healing? No, unless PvP.

  81. Maxokaan on November 8, 2015 at 4:37 pm

    He Deltia, I was wondering if much will change for the battery in the orsinium update.
    And I’m playing this build right now, but I’m only level 15 what means I just unlocked my second ability bar. Many of your skills are very high level so I can’t use them yet. What skills should I use fill up the spaces until I unlock them? I really want to heal already instead of making a levelling character and switch it to healer, since I tend to play with my friends a lot.

  82. F1GHT3DUP on November 9, 2015 at 8:28 pm

    Deltia how are your heals so good? My BoL is only hitting for 10k. The only difference are CPs. I’m running the same gear all v16.

  83. inquisitive breton on November 12, 2015 at 4:04 pm

    Benefit to spell erosion?
    I go elfborn, higher crit = more heals

    Finally broke down and got engine guardian, free repent sold me.
    Holy resources, amazing.


  84. Ken on November 13, 2015 at 3:08 pm

    What would produce more healing power at vet 26 (just heals no DPS at all) 5 piece healer (jewlery obviously) or willpower Jewlery and two piece Seducer (i have no monster helm sets)

  85. Kariva Lynn on November 23, 2015 at 3:20 pm

    Hi Deltia,

    Is this still the build you are using? I am getting ready to have somebody craft me armor and want to make sure you still believe this is correct. Thanks!

    • Deltia on November 24, 2015 at 11:46 pm

      For healing yes, though I like Julianos all around unless PvP.

  86. Maxokaan on November 25, 2015 at 7:55 am

    Do you have any tips in leveling this build? What other skills should I get? Most of the skills you have are for higher lvl players

    • Deltia on November 26, 2015 at 1:10 am

      I suggest using Omega until end game as leveling as healer is slow.

      • Zack on November 27, 2015 at 7:19 am

        Hey what’s a good dps Templar build

  87. Jack on November 29, 2015 at 9:09 am

    Is the gear in this build focused on pure heals? (For example, if I wanted a little more utility and some DPSing would Julianos be better?)

    • Deltia on November 30, 2015 at 2:02 pm

      Yes go Julianos

  88. whip on December 2, 2015 at 6:37 pm

    For CP why are you in spell erosion and not elfborn?

    • Deltia on December 3, 2015 at 2:50 pm

      Yeah it should be in Elfborn good catch.

  89. Juan on December 4, 2015 at 1:32 am

    What about using TBS & Healers set with aprenticce and the tower

    • Deltia on December 6, 2015 at 9:09 am

      Sounds like a great combo, but instead of tower Ritual.

      • JuanMontoya18 on December 7, 2015 at 4:16 am

        Yeah that’s the one i meant but forgot the name lol

  90. Nur die SGE on December 6, 2015 at 10:52 am

    Nice Guide!
    I play PS4. I cant find a Person to craft this 8 trait Set. Can i go with 5x vr16 seducer Set ? I think its also good for healing.
    Pls help so i can farm the mats.

    • Deltia on December 6, 2015 at 5:37 pm

      That’s a good combo or 4/4 magnus seducers

    • Mosher on December 7, 2015 at 12:37 pm

      EU server? I can craft you kagrenac for a little gold 😀

    • Niru_Havsbrisen on December 8, 2015 at 9:30 pm

      My current fave is:

      5 light armor sets Seducer
      2 light armor sets Turogs pact
      2 swords (DW) sets for turogs pact:

      5/5 seducer
      4/5 turog

      You get lots of mag regen, max magicka, and 8% cost reduction, all with seducer. With Turog, you get some spell damage, max health, and another boost in your spell resistance! Granted, you will only get the 4/5 in Turog while on the attack bar only, however, you will get the constant Spell Damage due to the two light armors, on BOTH bars, which feeds BoL and Combat Prayer on your resto bar! This is my 2 cents, at least while vet leveling and until you can aquire the more legendary vet 16 gear from Arena, and level 9 crafting sets. 🙂

  91. asdf on December 7, 2015 at 9:37 am

    Channeled Focus (morph of Rune Focus | Restoration Staff skill line) – Managing magicka becomes a non issue if you continually maintain focus plus massive mitigation.

    This skill is in the Restoring Light Skill Line.

    Looked for it for 5 minutes before making the realization. 😉

  92. Niru_Havsbrisen on December 8, 2015 at 9:15 pm

    Hi Deltia! I just wanted to pass on my appreciation for this build, and I have a suggestion on skills to use till you are in groups (and will even work if in one, but I’ll show why).

    I pretty much am setup like it shows, DW bar 1, resto bar 2. I was using what you’ve shown:

    1-Radiant Op
    2-Inner light
    4-Pure light
    5-Blazing shards
    -Ult Solar prison

    2-Inner light
    4-Channeled focus
    5-Combat prayer
    -Ult Rememberance

    Now, this was doing really well, but mostly when with someone else. I made a few tweaks that have worked with me both by myself and even in a group.

    Both weapon choices are the same, just these are the differences and why:

    *1-Punct Sweeps- I realised having both Rad Op and Pure light on both bars was kinda slow. When enemies begin to close in, PS will help handle the mobs, deal great damage AND restore my health. I alternate between mostly Pure light and blaze shards till they get close.
    2-Inner light
    4-*Radiant Op- Because, finnisher.
    5-Blaze shards
    -Ult Solar Prison

    1-*Chan focus- i moved this to the square button, so switching will immediately lead right into PS, giving me defenses and dmg/health when combat gets close.
    2-Inner light
    4-Pure light- i moved this to resources for a few reasons; first, i felt it was too slow on the main attack bar, second, I open with it along with chan focus and combat prayer, third, its on the same button (L1) as the other single target killer, Radiant Op. I just switch to this bar quickly to recast if needed and also popping down chan focus/combat prayer.
    5-Combat prayer
    -Ult Rememberance

    Repentance? AMAZING skill, LOVE it! However, unless we are doing a Dolman or mob dungeon, i dont larticularly use it, and would rather keep up puncturing sweeps for CC situations. Plus, I have to give it to PS that I’ve lived through 99% of fights where my DPS friends have died.

    If people end up finding The Battery being slower than needed, just switch up the bars to reflect what is needed for YOU. The way I do this is with Dolmans, run into one on your own and take it all on, see what you spam and what keeps you alive. I found Pure Light was just an opener and when I had time, which was hard being swarmed, thats why i moved it to the back. This works prettt smoothly and has made jealous friends in veteran content areas, “Why is our healer kicking TOO much ass?!” XD

    Thanks again for the build, Deltia. This helped my game immensely. 🙂

    • Niru_Havsbrisen on December 8, 2015 at 9:38 pm

      Oh, also, I like to use Empowering Sweep when by myself on my attack ultimate. The damage midication and low ult cast is great when flipping the Aedric bird at mobs. XD

    • Deltia on December 9, 2015 at 2:01 pm

      Yeah those are great changes.

  93. Louie on December 9, 2015 at 1:49 am

    Would this be any good in PVP for healing? If not what would you change Deltia?

    • Deltia on December 9, 2015 at 2:10 pm

      Somewhat and depends on your group size. If running 12+ you need massive AoE healing like Healing Springs and Healing Ritual works great as well.

  94. Aren on December 9, 2015 at 6:19 pm

    Hey delt what do you think would be better to go for more spell power or more crit?

    • Aren on December 9, 2015 at 6:19 pm

      For heals btw

    • Deltia on December 9, 2015 at 10:20 pm


      • Aren on December 11, 2015 at 3:09 pm

        That’s what I thought but was not sure thx

      • Asheel on January 6, 2016 at 12:29 pm

        more crit is better? why you dont take thief mundus? and/or Elfborn in CP?

  95. HenpokoncaHuka on December 10, 2015 at 11:38 am

    Great job mate! Just to say, I bet on Kagrenac’s x5 + Healers x5 + Gardian’s x2(Heavy) ! Just thing less magica is better for healing!

  96. Julian on December 12, 2015 at 1:52 pm

    Your “Channeled Focus (morph of Rune Focus | Restoration Staff)” should say it’s in the Restoring Light tree

  97. maxy88 on December 13, 2015 at 4:08 pm

    This build is awesome! I switched to it (from Immortal Templar) on my last respec and haven’t looked back. Keep up the good work!

  98. Brock on December 15, 2015 at 11:45 am

    What style is that kagrenacs hope i really like the way it looks?

    • Deltia on December 15, 2015 at 5:21 pm


      • KED on March 27, 2016 at 12:00 am

        Deltia theres no way that style is Xvykin. Looks more like Aldmeri Dominion.

  99. Isbiten on December 16, 2015 at 4:48 pm

    Is this still up-to date with the current patch?

  100. Hedas on December 17, 2015 at 3:41 am

    I normally doing party. Is Healing Ritual is a good skills for party?

  101. Hedas on December 17, 2015 at 10:09 am

    Hello. I wanna ask. Usually i playing templar with party. Is healing ritual skill is good skill for party and alliance war?

    • Deltia on December 17, 2015 at 4:45 pm

      Not for PvE healing.

  102. Lt2 on December 18, 2015 at 2:06 am

    i have templar hiller 16vr 229cemp
    I go only Dungey & trials

    max magicka – 21488
    max health – 18036

    magicka regen – 2331

    What is wrong with me?

    • Deltia on December 19, 2015 at 8:53 pm

      Is inner light on? What food do you use? And I have 250 more Champion Points that you which gives me a lot more magicka.

      • Lt2 on December 21, 2015 at 10:34 am

        it is without food, magicians 27000, 23000 life.
        but the trouble is not the case.
        spelrezist buff with 28000, 21000 fizrezist but killing 3 strokes in imperial sity
        does not work and spelrezist fizrezist?
        How to improve the survival rate?

        • Deltia on December 21, 2015 at 7:48 pm

          From players? Are you using channeled focus? How about your champion points, fire resist?

          • Lt2 on December 22, 2015 at 5:58 am

            focus not use, fire rezist 0

          • Lt2 on December 22, 2015 at 6:02 am

            channeled focus use in PVE in Pvp use Unstoppable skill
            Ihave cgaft 9 treyt Armor master bild + engener set

    • Asheel on January 6, 2016 at 12:25 pm

      to many magicka regen. You have engine guardians set. you dont need so many magicka regen. Go more in Spellpower in your willpower set and maximize your manapool.

  104. Anj on December 19, 2015 at 3:25 pm

    if you’re unable to craft Kagrenac, because you’re new to the game, and not in a guild.. What are other set options? Currently I’m only 4 traits in all light armor/heavy

    • Deltia on December 19, 2015 at 8:59 pm

      Seducers is still great.

  105. Axel on December 25, 2015 at 10:48 am

    This is a nice build, however there is no leveling guide. Is there any specific advice about that?

  106. Tehdavie on December 26, 2015 at 1:24 am

    I might have found a use for Vampirism. The morph for drain essence. It gives ultimate when using dual wield. Its not alot but it helps.

  107. idh8too on January 2, 2016 at 9:00 am

    I use the 5 piece Kagrenac’s Hope but I’m not doing hardly any rezzing. Would the Julianos set me good as a healer. I’m often dps’ing.

  108. Kelly on January 5, 2016 at 12:11 am

    How would a argonian be for this build?

    • Deltia on January 8, 2016 at 2:30 pm

      Not as good as a Dunmer, Breton or High Elf, but if you like the race play it.

  109. Ulrik on January 8, 2016 at 3:38 pm

    Channeled Focus (morph of Rune Focus | Restoration Staff skill line) – Managing magicka becomes a non issue if you continually maintain focus plus massive mitigation. Rune Focus in this post is indicated as Restoration Staff skill line its part of the Restoring light skill line

  110. Emporers Champion on January 9, 2016 at 9:03 pm

    IN re to PVP

    im finding such a huge disparity in damage done due to champion points.
    I only have 12…… as I just started playing again and Im seeing that even in GOOD GEAR– I am hitting people for approximately 2-5k LESS than I am getting hit for with the same skill.– And this is in non vet pvp.
    I put every class in there and as am example I will funnel health for… 400 lol, concealed weapon for 1k, and implale for at most 2k……
    while I get nailed by 1800 funnles–3800 concealed weapons, and 12k impales.
    Is there a way to pvp and still do good damage without the cps? or do I need to PVE to farm CP before I pvp?


    • Sweaty on January 18, 2016 at 6:08 pm

      Farm CP.
      Upgrade your gear.
      Farm more CP.

  111. Anamyl on January 9, 2016 at 9:39 pm

    Thanks for the build. I’ve been working up my templar using this guide for lvl 8 to now vr8. I’m really enjoying playing the templar. Are there any changes that should be considered based on the orsinium update?

    • Deltia on January 11, 2016 at 5:46 pm

      Not really, if you have 5 piece combat physician and 5 piece Trinimacs its insane, but less than .001% have that.

      • Joeky on February 2, 2016 at 7:29 pm

        Would 5 Piece Trinimacs and 5 piece combat physician be better than your setup in this guide?

        • Deltia on February 2, 2016 at 10:40 pm

          That’s a great idea, but sadly I got the two sets and it doesn’t work like it should. The proc says “casted shields” and combat doesn’t trigger trinimacs like one would think.

  112. Tom on January 12, 2016 at 4:23 pm

    Do you have any new imperial templar tank builds deltia? Looking to change from dps.

    • Deltia on January 18, 2016 at 7:41 pm

      I’m finishing my Templar tank the Wall this Friday should be out.

    • Ditto on February 11, 2016 at 2:34 pm

      looking to change my Imperial Stamplar into a Healer… any advice? Will this build work or need I wait until Thieve’s Guild to change?

      • Deltia on February 11, 2016 at 2:47 pm

        Yes this will work, I’ll change a few things but the general concept remains the same.

        • ditto on February 11, 2016 at 6:25 pm

          Thanks. One more question. Breath of Life is going to only heal one other person? Does this mean more magica needed? Also, leaving the Rune only last 4 seconds?

  113. Motu on January 12, 2016 at 10:54 pm

    Why not use 1 heavy, 1 medium and 1 light armor piece for the undaunted passive?

    • Deltia on January 18, 2016 at 7:58 pm

      It’s a good idea if you have good champion points and recovery. You’re basically trading magicka recovery for max stats.

  114. Isi on January 14, 2016 at 4:21 am

    Hmm, do you still use dual wield in offhand?
    I dont seem to get the extra bonus for with them anymore.

    • Deltia on January 18, 2016 at 8:02 pm

      Yes, it should still work.

  115. Applejacks03 on January 14, 2016 at 9:29 pm

    I’m new to ESO and have a quick question. What is “bi-stat” good and drink? How do I make it? Thanks.

    • Deltia on January 18, 2016 at 8:03 pm

      Bi-Stat means two, so max health/magicka is the best for this build. You gather materials and level up your provisioning which allows you to make food and drinks.

  116. StankEfresh on January 14, 2016 at 11:24 pm


    First time caller, long time listener. Good build as always. Only question though is why the 100 CP into bastion? Where is your damage absorbing ability? Channelled focus buffs resistance, so it doesn’t help there at all… is it just for when you swap in harness magicka? Couldn’t those points be better spent equally distributed amongst the 4 Lady buffs??? Thanks and I’ll hang up and listen

    • Deltia on January 18, 2016 at 8:04 pm

      It could be spent elsewhere, I had that incase I PvP’d and used Barrier.


  117. Nolphi on January 18, 2016 at 10:38 pm

    Hi Deltia, I am still running around with dual nirnhoned swords without enchants like I think you suggested in your video of this build. Now I noticed that you do enchant your swords. Would those enchants not only proc from physically swinging your swords?

  118. Arthur on January 26, 2016 at 6:51 pm

    What I should use if I don’t have the engine gaurdian helm and shoulder until I get them?

  119. Dekrypt on January 27, 2016 at 8:11 pm

    For healing larger groups, like a 12 man trial or even a PvP group, what heals have you found to work best? I already know that I can’t spam Breath of Life for that many people. Thanks!

    • Deltia on January 27, 2016 at 8:31 pm

      Healing Springs does work great in larger group content like Trials/PvP. Spam that sucker!

      • Dekrypt on January 29, 2016 at 3:20 pm

        Youda man! Thanks for all your hard work!

  120. Jason on January 27, 2016 at 10:39 pm

    Fairly new to Templar healer build. Why duel wield swords?

  121. Jaso again on January 28, 2016 at 10:09 pm

    Why not daggers? Instead of swords sorry me again daggers would give crit bonus. Swords give damage bonus. Just wondering.

    • Deltia on January 29, 2016 at 3:17 pm

      Daggers increases weapon critical not spell while swords gives you a flat damage bonus.

  122. BeansTwoNiner on January 29, 2016 at 6:17 am

    September 10, 2015 at 10:42 pm

    More spell power.

  123. Mark on January 29, 2016 at 1:56 pm

    Is there a leveling version of a Templar healer? I re-rolled a Breton (started with an Imperial) and don’t have all the skills yet.

    • Deltia on January 29, 2016 at 3:21 pm

      I just use Puncturing Sweeps and put abilities on my bar to level all the way to end game.

  124. Borghes on January 30, 2016 at 1:50 am

    Hi Deltia, thanks for this build, It is great! What appearance do you used to craft kagrenac armor ?

  125. culcha on February 2, 2016 at 5:57 pm

    hi deltia
    how important is the right race.

    • Deltia on February 2, 2016 at 10:38 pm

      Important but you can overcome a bad decision with game play.

  126. Madrox on February 5, 2016 at 7:23 am

    Hi i am new to the game and was wondering what passives i take for the duel wield skill line? I am following this build step by step and was curious to know what you passives you recommend taking? Thanks for your time

    • Deltia on February 5, 2016 at 4:29 pm

      The last one really is the valuable.

      • Nolphi on February 6, 2016 at 6:50 am

        How about the one that increase off-hand damage. Does that apply to spell damage too?

        • Deltia on February 7, 2016 at 12:18 am

          I don’t know, maybe you should test it and see if it works?

  127. Anthony on February 12, 2016 at 3:58 am

    Hey these builds are awesome and I am currently following Ignition, Frag out, and Omega. I just want thoughts on putting most cp into light armor focus and some into elemental defender in the lady constellation instead of the warrior. My rationale for this is that as a healer you need to stay alive so that your group survives as well because if the healer dies everyone else is usually dead soon after. Going with the lady constellation along with using harness magicka seem like a great way to increase survivability. All of the passives help with survivability and the last one unchained is great for fights where you get trapped in place. Getting trapped with a major boss AOE can be a death sentence. Plus in my opinion, other people in the group besides the healer should be the ones reviving so that the healer can continue keeping them alive. Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks!

  128. Serpace on February 16, 2016 at 1:43 am

    Hey Deltias, as we know that few Templar abilities are getting nerfed in 2.3 such as Breath of Life heals fewer targets, Healing ritual cast time reduced by 25% and heal reduced by 25% (Basically cost went up by 25%). etc. Will you be making any changes to the build?

    • Deltia on February 16, 2016 at 9:29 am

      Yes, main changes is Purifying Ritual or extended are a must and Healing Springs will make a comeback.

      • RedRoomGaming on February 16, 2016 at 10:43 am

        I am currently using the paladin from tamriel foundry. Imperial Templar healer tank and gutted of the birds as I only use it for dungeons. But now getting used to using healing springs because it stacks and I can use it about 30-35 times before my magika runs out.

      • Aren on April 14, 2016 at 1:25 pm

        When you stack extended ritual with healing springs stack phazes that were pretty resorce intencive become jokes

  129. Mich2424 on February 23, 2016 at 10:38 pm

    Deltia rune focus isnt under resto staff or atleast on ps4 eso what would be a good replacement

    • Deltia on February 24, 2016 at 4:13 pm

      It’s under Restoring Light Templar ability.

  130. Moredearh on February 24, 2016 at 1:36 pm

    You guys talk about healing springs? Is this the blood alter from undaunted line?

    • Azurhalo on March 8, 2016 at 12:30 pm

      Healing Springs is the a morph of the first restoration staff skill.

  131. Andrew on February 28, 2016 at 12:58 pm

    Great guide thanks but where would you allocate attribute points? I’m fairly new to ESO and want to make sure I get the best out of my healer thanks

    • Mich2424 on February 28, 2016 at 6:31 pm

      He said put all points into magicka

    So my understanding for having duel wield is just souly for the 5% weapon damage increase. So I gues my question is why wouldn’t I rather use sword and shield for the sword and board passive for 5% weapon damage and 20% blocking plus the extra armor from having the shield? Just wondering because I feel that you have an answer for that I just don’t know what it is.

    • Aren on March 6, 2016 at 11:19 am

      Because dual gives a hunk of spell power along with the 5% damage (also zos needs to clarify if it’s 5%per sword or just 5%for 2 swords it confusing) sorry if there are typos I’m currently typing this at 5:18 a.m on a iPad

  133. Randy on March 1, 2016 at 1:17 pm

    City of Ash. I was down to the last boss with this build. 3 high dps high durable sorcs… We got the boss down, but couldn’t clear the dungeon. I couldn’t revive anyone, kept turning to stone… took 107K one hits. I put 100 champ pts into elemental, but I only took more damage with the one hits 204k. Help!!!
    Same with White Gold, crazy

    • Aren on March 6, 2016 at 11:29 am

      a tip I’ve taken for vcoa is to stay on the middle platform for the first bit and the 3rd for the second the boss more or less takes a crapshoot on a target for freezing I find distance helps also when resing keep some freaking distance lot of the time I see people get killed because they underestimate how far you can res some one I recommend having a friend commit naked suaside to get a feeling on the range as for vwgt fight knowledge +experience is priceless some times I find some friends and scale it low just to practus the fights and get a feel for it #valkyn is a stonehot killer

  134. Nagruf on March 16, 2016 at 11:10 am

    How is this build now with Thieves Guild update

  135. GrindThemRPG's on March 16, 2016 at 9:44 pm

    Doesnt Reflective lights and its morphs give the same critical rating boost as Inner light. With only difference on a very short duration but with having a dot up and using it in between other attacks. I could see 5 % magicka as a bonus though. Maybe in some situations having that other Dawns wrath ability with 20 % dmg increase on most attacks forgot the name. Will be helpfull in aoe situations. What inner light gives a downside for me is that it makes occupy more slots and feels as if we limit ourselves to other abilitys i felt the same playing sorcerer. Not that you can help that becuz its due to the way Zenimax designed magelight.

  136. GrindThemRPG's on March 16, 2016 at 9:47 pm

    Although the reflective light and its morphs may have gotten that critical chance increase in the recent patch im not sure because i didnt play templar before Thieves Guild.

  137. GrindThemRPG's on March 16, 2016 at 9:53 pm

    Scaring off someone close with an attack with dot that can be morped into an aoe spell up close and 20 % increase on next ability with the skill below reflective may come in handy though to keep distance or cause confusion and small pressure as healer a lil. Or finish off some low health adds especially on the dual wield bar since it adds to close situations.

  138. Rafa on March 18, 2016 at 9:24 pm

    Hies Deltia, First of all I wanna thank you for this guide, it has been a really good help during my healing time on this game. I play on console so I haven’t got the opportunity to test the BoL nerf. Is there any heads up you could give us about it? From what I read you are saying to make purifying a must right? So you are thinking on stacking Healing Springs along with PR so we don’t depend that much on BoL?

  139. Alexhian82 on March 20, 2016 at 6:55 am

    hello, meanwhile congratulations for the published guide, utile.poi really wanted to ask, as shown in the guide are only 300 points champion, the last 201 points, where should I put them?

  140. Jack on March 22, 2016 at 7:47 pm

    Thanks you for All your tips. Deltia we really need you for a update of this build without BoL. Please .

    • Deltia on March 27, 2016 at 12:23 pm

      I know, been taking a break getting ready for my baby. I’ll start fixing this stuff.

  141. GAOS on March 23, 2016 at 12:22 pm

    hi, how did u get side bar on templar? isnt it posible only on sorcerer?

  142. Simon on March 23, 2016 at 6:59 pm

    Hey Deltia,
    Thieves guild is now out, are you Thinking on making an up-dated version on the Battery build?

    iv noticed you have done DPS stam and magica but not healing.

  143. Kazik on March 25, 2016 at 6:57 am

    New patch/DLC and new build for templar healer?

  144. Russ on March 25, 2016 at 10:09 am

    Thieves Guild update? Don’t need s video just would like to know how this changes specifically

    • DavidtheNomad on March 29, 2016 at 7:37 pm

      This build is solid and does not need huge changes for Thieves guild. BoL only hits 2, so with teams who cannot handle damage you may see it auto hitting players other than you, which can cause issues, but for the most part it is not a huge deal. It makes this move more of a correction ability rather than a spam (for PVP and PVE.)
      To correct, just add an AOE heal or some over-time heals on your staff and you’ll be fine.
      Champion points I went with lady over lord w/ thieves update as the direct mitigation seemed more efficient to me. (Updates from thieves are not yet built into his tool so you will have to check patch notes or actually read the tips in game to know what I mean. )
      One other big change is the nerf to resurrection boosts. ZOS flipped them to be multiplicative rather than additive. (IE 20% and 40% boosts now yield a 52% total reduction rather than a 60%)
      I would curious what Deltia suggests, but I think you will see Templar heals branch away from Kagrenac’s now as the set is redundant, and fold back to spell power/regen sets.

      • James on April 4, 2016 at 5:08 pm

        Just getting the thieves guild update on console. So this is still competitive for pvp group play?

      • James on April 4, 2016 at 5:09 pm

        Just got the new dlc on console. So this is still competitive in pvp group play?

        • DavidTheNomad on April 7, 2016 at 3:09 pm

          Downloaded in one minute… I’m jealous.
          Deltia posted last week. He varies slightly from the post here, and I still like AOE heals over pure BOL for large group (like PVP) but he still looks very competitive to me.
          I run more of a DPS Templar but often end up healing a fair amount, so I use Juliano’s w/ Shadow Mundus (in place of Kag, throw on 2-3 impenetrable traits too)
          Utilizing spell power pots (power+regen+crit) frees up a lot of room on your bar and with that triple running in tandem with the set you should have room and power to hit hard with both heals and damage.
          Every build and every day is different, but what Deltia wrote here is solid and still very feasible.

          Deltia, congrats on Maximus! He is lucky to have an intelligent father who cares for him. You’ll be an amazing dad.

  145. vassgo on March 25, 2016 at 12:15 pm

    for the race: it shows dark elf when i click on skills at top but in your options you say high elf or brenton. I want to go high elf or dark elf. which one would i choose?

  146. fatasura on April 3, 2016 at 5:34 pm

    I’ve been following the Omega build so far (at lvl 31 now) and am thinking of switching over to more of a healing role end game.
    Would it be a good idea to switch to a restro staff on 1 bar now to get that leveled, and slot in the abilities as I get them, or won’t this build do enough DPS for leveling?

  147. Plato Marx on April 8, 2016 at 11:02 am

    Fairly New to ESO, xbox console player, looking to revamp my 49 Templar and in this direction. Two questions; Is this setup still solid for console and today?, and why the dual blades? Are they essential or could they be say swapped out for two handed without losing efficiency?
    P.S. – Already revamped my mage to your Ignition Mage build, works great, thank you!

    • Deltia on April 8, 2016 at 2:20 pm

      It still works but needs a slight tweaking.

      Dual Swords for spell power.

      • Plato Marx on April 8, 2016 at 2:45 pm

        Gotcha, I’ll give it a try, thank you!

  148. Trevor on April 12, 2016 at 3:48 am

    Hello Deltias, I have been a long time fan of all of your videos in Elder Scrolls. When I need to learn something, you are the guy I go to watch. Unfortunately, the one thing I truly need is a detailed step by step battery healer build. I’m talking about what to put in each level. Like your Omega Templar build. This is the one build lacking on YouTube and would make the game better as a whole considering that people will almost always have a great healer build. I doubt you will read this, but this would truly make my year.

    • Deltia on April 12, 2016 at 1:42 pm

      I read this Trevor and thanks for your comment. The problem with leveling as a healer is you have no one to heal the majority of your time playing. When you do play group dungeons, often times you can heal that just with Breath of Life alone. So that’s why I haven’t invested in making a full on build about it. But I will update the Battery today.

      • RedRoomGaming on April 12, 2016 at 2:09 pm

        Hey deltia I was going to come and ask about this today.

        A quick question, is the TG update the end for the imperial Templar healer? I mean the main “get out of jail free card” breath of life has been nurfed and if you had a bad group you can’t heal fast unless you have lingering ritual or a resto staff. I currently have a v16 imperial temp that is just sat as my crafter purely because I run with a group of sorcs and nightblades and being a sorc on my alt there isn’t a need for it in pve. Would this build still be viable in pvp/e after you update it?

      • Michael on April 13, 2016 at 10:15 pm

        Hello Deltas great vid today! I was wondering if it’s better to use your omega Templar build to level then if it is possible switch to a your battery build just to level up faster? And also is a Breton better then a high elf for a templar?

        • Deltia on April 13, 2016 at 10:24 pm

          Yes level as a DPS primarily. Breton is great for PvP with spell resist but pure damage High Elf is great. If you plan on being just healer, I’d go with Breton.

  149. Skyhawk760 on April 12, 2016 at 3:17 pm

    Do you have the build before you updated this in the past 12 hours saved elsewhere? I was using it while I leveled up.

  150. healer1 on April 13, 2016 at 11:48 am

    oh it seems there is an update with build. BoL seems removed from second tab. It seems risky for me, im playing eso last 1,5 months. and little bit newbie. When you swap weapon and someone takes huge damage reswap and using BoL seems risky for me. and ultimates seems changed. really interesting i will try out this build this evening the last one actually were working great for me. thanks for update and thanks for you are sharing your builds to us. as a newbie, you helped me much. thanks.

    • Deltia on April 13, 2016 at 3:49 pm

      Yeah if that doesn’t work for you, drop Proxy Det and replace with double bar Breath of Life. It takes awhile to get use too and anticipate damage.

    • Aren on April 14, 2016 at 1:14 pm

      When i first changed to tg update for this build i poped combat pray and suprise that got them out of the danger zone was not a heal to full like bol but with hots running got back to the safe zone for hp

  151. Milaan on April 13, 2016 at 12:41 pm

    Can you leave a word on the recommended health value a breton templar should have and where these come from as i dont see any health buff in your gear (expect 1k from Torug’s).

    • Deltia on April 13, 2016 at 3:48 pm

      It should be in the guide, around 18k health.

      • Milaan on April 13, 2016 at 3:50 pm

        Well i dont understand where this health is coming from when i put all my points into magicka and my gear has no health bonus.

        • Deltia on April 13, 2016 at 5:10 pm

          501 CP adds max stats.

          • Milaan on April 13, 2016 at 5:35 pm

            Huh? Never heard of that. I get a bonus when i reach 501?

          • Milaan on April 13, 2016 at 5:39 pm

            Ah found the answer i guess. For every point in a CP category i get a health/stam/mag bonus.

          • arckaine647 on April 13, 2016 at 6:48 pm

            It is my understanding that it is a nominal bonus for each point APPLIED to the applicable constellation. Warrior=Health, Thief=Stamina, Mage=Magicka.

  152. Maxokaan on April 13, 2016 at 5:03 pm

    ooouuch don’t like the thin italic font, its very hard to read

    • Deltia on April 13, 2016 at 5:13 pm

      Strange it changed to italics and I can’t change it….oh wordpress

  153. MidnightHeights on April 13, 2016 at 7:42 pm

    Would you also put puncturing strikes as a flex for a few abilities

    • Deltia on April 13, 2016 at 9:22 pm

      Puncturing Sweeps? Yes if you want a lot of offense.

  154. Patriarch on April 13, 2016 at 9:06 pm

    Another excellent build, Deltia. What set (in addition to Kags) would you recommend if we’re still leveling? My healer is V1.

  155. MidnightHeights on April 14, 2016 at 12:32 am

    What are some abilities on this build you swap out and some you would swap in for pvp ?

  156. Blake on April 14, 2016 at 2:42 am

    Are you sure about having to slot inner light once? I just did a test on this and buff does not not stay up on second bar.

    • Deltia on April 14, 2016 at 11:49 pm

      Inner light only gives crit for which bar you slot it.

      • Blake on April 15, 2016 at 12:37 am

        Checked this again and you lose both major prophecy and the 5% magicka on second bar if inner light is not slotted twice.

        • Dekrypt on April 15, 2016 at 12:47 am

          Inner Light is working as intended in the build. That’s why Deltia considers the Resto staff bar a “buff” bar. Remember, Proxy Det is a flex spot if you’re concerned about inner light.

  157. Aren on April 14, 2016 at 1:10 pm

    Hey deltia ive taken a likeing to the healing that combat prayers provides along with its buff as when i refresh it it gets people out of the danger zone sorta a mini bol what do you think of it? I think its nice since i no longer double bar bol in tg

  158. DavidTheNomad on April 14, 2016 at 1:24 pm

    Channeled focus grants major mending now since TG update. It was not included in patch notes nor tool tip. Major mending + mitigation + magicka regen (with its reduced cost) makes it one of the very best Templar moves IMO now. A Templar sweeping on a rune can solo half the non-vet dungeons now. Sad to see it not included on this build anymore.
    Molten weapons now grant major sorc to the whole team now as well? Odds of getting an NB running grim and/or a DK running molten seem high enough these days that combat pray feels redundant.
    Can you post your unboosted (or boosted with note) final stats on this? I follow the current trend of nirning an item or two (typically belt) to increase resistance as losing one divine for huge mitigation seems beneficial at lower resistances. Thoughts?
    This looks like another incredible build, nice job.

    • Dekrypt on April 14, 2016 at 4:02 pm

      I agree and would like to bump this comment. Channeled Focus has been a regen/survivability must for a while. I’ve been watching the video and didn’t notice an explanation for its absence. If you would include it, what would we swap for? Flex spot? Thanks, Deltia.

      • Deltia on April 14, 2016 at 10:45 pm

        Proxy can be swapped out.

  159. Yuuta on April 15, 2016 at 3:41 am

    I’m using Healing Spring currently for non-vet PVE dungeon. Is rapid regen much better than Healing Spring currently?

    • Deltia on April 15, 2016 at 9:39 pm

      I think so, Healing Springs is great for sustained but often times its overkill to have someone just sit there and spam it. Try different combinations.

  160. Trevor on April 15, 2016 at 6:30 am

    Why u have no real magika support in ur build? Allways drain ( not only in raids) and mystic Orbs . I think ur magika DD s will lack sustain when their equip is build on full damage…

    • Deltia on April 15, 2016 at 9:41 pm

      No magicka support?
      1) Rapid Regeneration returns magicka
      2) I talked about Elemental Drain being swapped in for Trials
      3) I talked about Siphoning Spirit being swapped in on the backbar as well.
      4) Worm Cult gives everyone 5% less magicka cost.

      Mystic Orbs I think is a waste in terms of sustained and space on your bar. Four things to optimize magicka is plenty for a normal healer.

      • Code on April 16, 2016 at 2:50 am

        The Maelstrom staff’s magicka return is only to the caster–i.e., to the healer. It offers no sustain for the rest of the group.

        Orbs are nice, but I agree that they are situational. There are some places (vMoL, some of the really big vICP pulls) where I’d use them, though. I usually ask the DPS what they need and if they’re having sustain issues.

  161. Shalowell on April 19, 2016 at 9:39 am

    Great guide as always; what alternative sets would you recommend using while one grinds to get Worm Cult/ SPC sets?

    • Deltia on April 19, 2016 at 1:28 pm

      Kag is good but there’s really no 5 piece jewelry that would work so a 2 piece head set or 4 Magnus and Willpower.

  162. LokomotivBreath on April 19, 2016 at 1:42 pm

    Where did you (can I) get the necklace of the worm? I have been running MOL since thieves guild came out, talked with dozens of people bout it, and no one has one, seen one, knows anyone who has one or has even heard of one. I know it is supposed to drop in MOL. I have 2 rings of the worm VR16 but can’t find the necklace any where. Have been checking guild traders for as long as thieves guild has been out and can’t even find any level Worm necklace. I’m beginning to think they don’t exist, but you have one. Any help would be appreciated

  163. Justinjr00 on April 20, 2016 at 4:17 pm

    What are your thoughts on undaunted mettle for vet templar healing?

    • Deltia on April 20, 2016 at 8:05 pm

      Oh I think it’s great for anyone especially if you have a 5 1/1 setup. The latest build uses all light due to set pieces that’s why I don’t use it.

  164. Justinjr00 on April 21, 2016 at 1:46 pm

    How does twice born star stack up with say atronarch and the thief stones? Or does the spell power of kag’s hope stronger? Looks for a more flexible set and tbs seems to fit the bill.

    • Dekrypt on April 21, 2016 at 2:57 pm

      No Magicka recovery, No Spell Power? And while the healer should not be rezzing, the 5 piece of Kags is situationally awesome. TBS would cause deficits in stats like SP/ recovery for a healer, though you may be able to partially make up for them in Jewelry, your racial passives and CP bonuses are reliant upon stats such as Spell Power and Magicka Recovery which are found in your gear/jewelry. I suppose it would have to be a crit healing build but TBS is more appropriate to DPS builds that are reliant heavily upon crit dmg.

    • Deltia on April 21, 2016 at 7:12 pm

      It does but I don’t find it effective.

  165. jsmith76 on April 27, 2016 at 8:57 am

    Hi, could you please tell me a basic leveling build for the healer Templar as i would like to heal friends, and get through pve questing and join dungeons on the way! thanks

    • Aren on May 13, 2016 at 4:11 pm

      Lvl as a dps but slot the skills you have for dungons bol is base line temp skill and resto core skills are goten early on

  166. Jake on May 5, 2016 at 12:48 am

    Any tips on gear for when I don’t have access on Spell Power Cure or Worm Cult (or any other non-craftables)? I’ve kind of been playing solo so far but love to try healing in a group now, I just don’t know what gear to get for starters.

  167. Chris on May 9, 2016 at 8:15 pm

    Can the shroud of the lich set work with this build style , maybe 5 Julianos 5 lich on back bar ?

    • Deltia on May 9, 2016 at 8:37 pm

      Yes that’s a great combo!

  168. Aren on May 13, 2016 at 4:08 pm

    ive taken to hording soul gems desided to ask round how many gems is to many i got 5 stacks in my bank and 2 in my mains inventory ( i may have a problem)

  169. Anthony on May 24, 2016 at 2:27 am

    Will this build be great in pvp as well thanks

    • Deltia on May 24, 2016 at 7:24 pm

      This is my PvP healer build –

  170. Travis on May 24, 2016 at 12:26 pm

    Im a healer and i use resto as my main bar, would the redistributor set be good? As i am constantly at full health and using resto heavy attacks wich i do alot of will restore health thus making the redistributor proc. If it would work id be using redistributor and engine guardian.

    • Deltia on May 24, 2016 at 7:25 pm

      I don’t find it effective.

  171. Lost on May 30, 2016 at 12:54 pm

    So first off delta, you got me hooked on healing Im loving it but i think i have a problem. When i first made my main character it was based on a different build The Harvester. So as of right now im an Imperial templar. Is this a bad race to try to use this build? Ive pull all my attributes into magicka to balance it out. Should i just make a new character and change this back? Because of this i consider myself a dps more than a healer. I feel like a tanky dps/healer but im still very inexperienced. Only just got this game 6 months ago.

    • Deltia on May 31, 2016 at 8:13 pm

      If you like it, play it.

  172. ShamanicBuddha on June 1, 2016 at 7:12 am

    I was wondering if combining 5 peaces of the worm cult set with 5 peaces of the sanctuary set would be a viable option for gear as a Templar healer?

  173. ShamanicBuddha on June 1, 2016 at 11:54 am

    I was wondering after the DB update if a combination of 5 peaces of the worm cult armor set with 5 peaces of the sanctuary set would be a viable option for equipment. I set my Breton Templar up with such a combo last night and it looks cool, but I wanted to know if it was a good idea?
    Also being a little lower in Champion points, I was wondering if you would suggest investing more in curtain areas before others or balancing them out at first?

    • Deltia on June 1, 2016 at 1:57 pm

      Is Sanctuary now vr16 or 160 CP? If so yeah….

      • ShamanicBuddha on June 1, 2016 at 2:02 pm

        I could only find CP 50:(

  174. SkipQ on June 2, 2016 at 5:00 am

    I just finished watching your Tanking tips and noticed that at the end you run down a list of your current builds. Maybe I missed it, but I did not notice a your Battery build listed there. Is this a build you plan on updating?

  175. Michael on June 3, 2016 at 11:45 pm

    I have worm cult gear and will power but don’t have Spell Power Cure set and alternatives that you would suggest?

  176. G on June 5, 2016 at 10:55 am

    When update (Brotherhood DLC)?

  177. Scott Yates on June 13, 2016 at 8:32 pm

    Hey Deltia, love your guides. If I’m running essence of spell power pots constantly (47 second duration, 45 second cooldown) giving me major sorcery, prophecy and intellect, should I trade inner light out for something else?

    • Deltia on June 15, 2016 at 2:09 pm

      No Inner Light is for max magicka, aka more healing.

  178. Gregory on June 16, 2016 at 9:39 pm

    Will you be remaking a new one for the Dark brotherhood update? I love this build

    • Deltia on June 19, 2016 at 6:28 pm

      Yes waiting on two pieces of Twilight Jewelry.

  179. Asteroo on June 19, 2016 at 7:45 am

    Is there a big gap in terms of healing and damage capabilities of an Imperial healer compared to your recommended three races? Thanks, love your videos

    • Deltia on June 19, 2016 at 8:22 pm

      For doing dungeons and what not, not much. For doing high level stuff like 500k+ VMA runs, Vet Maw, yeah huge difference.

  180. Jo Harvey on June 23, 2016 at 5:00 pm

    would 5 worm, 3 willpower, 2 torugs and engine guardian work together?

    • Jo Harvey on June 23, 2016 at 5:05 pm

      forgot to say or should I just keep kagranacs instead of the worm?

    • Deltia on June 25, 2016 at 2:08 pm

      It word work but Spell Power Cure is a much better five piece since you can do wormcult with jewelry.

  181. iarao on June 26, 2016 at 9:23 pm

    hi deltia, i dont see focused healing under restoring light passives. pls advise. tyty

    Is this still good post dark brotherhood

    I know you have previously said that you intend on updating this build after obtaining a few more items. Now that Shadows of the Hist has been announced, with the anticipated drop day just a little over a month off, should we still expect an update to this(and other) builds before the update? or will you hold off until after the update drops with the updated new race passive skills?

    What would be a good raid load-out?

    • Deltia on July 5, 2016 at 3:42 pm

      Mystic Orbs, Elemental Drain, Spirit Siphon and healing springs.

      • Michael on July 7, 2016 at 8:00 pm

        Thank you, also to you have a Vma Templar build?

    I have not completed the required dungeons, arena’s etc in order to acquire items that make this build so strong. This is a list of craftable items, that can be used as a transitory set until you can farm these items. It is based on gleanings from Deltias’ many pages. I hope its approved and useful by others as well.

    Head, Light, Magnus, Divines, Magicka
    Shoulders, Light, Magnus, Divines, Magicka
    Chest, Light, Kagrenac’s Hope, Divines, Magicka
    Legs, Light, Kagrenac’s Hope, Divines, Magicka
    Gloves, Light, Kagrenac’s Hope, Divines, Magicka
    Boots, Light, Kagrenac’s Hope, Divines, Magicka
    Belt, Light, Kagrenac’s Hope, Divines, Magicka
    Wep 1, Sword, Torug’s Pact, Precise, Majicka return
    Wep 2, Sword, Torug’s Pact, Precise, Shield
    Wep 3, Restoration, Torug’s Pact, Precise, Default
    Necklace, Arcane, Magnus, Spell Damage
    Ring 1, Arcane, Magnus, Spell Damage
    Ring 2, Arcane, Magnus, Majicka Recovery

  186. XB1-joshfight00 on July 11, 2016 at 3:15 am

    Correction to my last.
    Magnus 5pc, kag 2pc, dual swords torugs, rest staff ANY, Necklace/rings go willpower (cant be crafted as magnus.. my bad). Swap the kag for magnus depending on what you want..

    Hi all,

    What do we think about the combat physician set for this build ?


    • Deltia on July 23, 2016 at 12:45 am

      Not worth a 5 piece when shields are random proc and it has cool down.

  188. Leigh on July 21, 2016 at 12:16 pm

    Hey Deltia, love your guides mate. What gear sets do you recommend now for temp heals after DB patch?

    • Deltia on July 23, 2016 at 12:46 am

      Same, SPC Worm SPC Twilight or SPC Infallible

  189. Source on July 31, 2016 at 1:54 am

    Is this build still the same after veteran rank removal / dark brotherhood?

  190. punished-horsegirl on August 1, 2016 at 6:23 am

    I tried healing for the firs time in random dungeons and this made it pretty easy

  191. Millidoubt on August 1, 2016 at 9:01 pm

    Hi, thanks for nice guide!
    I wanna translate “The Battery” build into Japanese for Japanese players because I love this build & I want the Japanese healers to be good at healing allies.
    Could you give the permission to me?

    • Deltia on August 3, 2016 at 5:28 pm

      Sure post away and thanks.

  192. klbagg on August 7, 2016 at 2:19 am

    Hey man. love the build. You said that you like to hit about 18-20k health… how are you doing that with only 10 points into health without added enchantment? just with bi stat food?

    • Deltia on August 7, 2016 at 7:59 am

      Max CP adds stats.

      • Klbagg on August 7, 2016 at 3:35 pm

        I’m not sure I follow. Can you elaborate please?

        • Deltia on August 10, 2016 at 8:16 pm

          You get more stats per each champion point you have. I assume you have less than the max.

  193. James Watts on August 8, 2016 at 3:19 pm

    So should i double bar inner light and Repentance?

    • Deltia on August 10, 2016 at 8:30 pm

      Just Inner Light

  194. Ryan on August 22, 2016 at 4:54 am

    If you were to run this build using only crafted sets/items which sets would you go for? Also when will a new update for this be released i love this build!

    • Deltia on August 25, 2016 at 6:24 pm

      Kags and magnus.

  195. Ryan on August 22, 2016 at 4:59 am

    Right now I’m running 5 pc seduced 3/4 pc magnus depending on if I have my swords or staff out

  196. G-Mac on August 31, 2016 at 3:01 pm

    Would this build work with an Argonian now after the recent updates?

    • Deltia on September 3, 2016 at 1:39 am

      Yes it’s the best.

  197. maXmood on September 3, 2016 at 8:59 am

    Thanks for the build, Deltia. I’m just starting out with the templar and would like to follow ur guide, but i’m not sure about how to spend the skill points i receive now (i’m only lvl 7 now) before i can get to the point where i can use the skills you’ve mentioned here. I.e where should i spend the skill points now? untill that skill is leveled enough to unlock the skills u mentioned. Thanks

    • Deltia on September 3, 2016 at 2:16 pm

      Mainly Aedric Spear passives and Light armor, then racial.

  198. Alyce on September 10, 2016 at 8:08 am

    Hi Deltia, I love all your builds! :] Quick question, what mundus stone, glyphs or gear should i be using since I’m a vampire? I just got cp38, I don’t usually die often but i do have a couple “oh crap” moments.. I’m currently using The Steed mundus stone because I’m lacking health regen. I’m still not sure if that’s the right way to go. I don’t know where do get all the cool gear like Seducers and such (first character ever). Any suggestions?


    • Deltia on September 11, 2016 at 7:56 am

      Same without vampire. That information is in this guide. Just use Harness Magicka for protection.

  199. William on September 27, 2016 at 7:35 pm

    Deltia you are the man! Your guilds get me through and I’m a super good healer now because of you. I have a question about my health. I’m at 16k right now but trying to get to the 18 to 20 you recommend. My cp is only 340 and I did put 10 points into health. The remaining cp I need for the current 531 cap will give me 2k health? Where do I get this missing health from?

    • Deltia on September 28, 2016 at 8:14 pm

      Undaunted and racials might give you more.

  200. Jwild77 on August 31, 2017 at 11:58 pm

    Is this still a working build?
