ESO Solo Templar Stamina Build for PvE

This guide explains how to use the best Elder Scrolls Online (ESO) Solo Templar Stamina PvE Build, skills, gear, champion points, and more

ESO Stamina Templar Solo PvE World Boss

This build has been updated for the Update 41 patch, Scions of Ithelia for the Elder Scrolls Online.

Why Should You Play ESO Solo Templar Stamina Build for PvE?

The ESO Solo Templar Stamina Build for PvE is for players who are looking to complete solo content with a solid, survivable stamina class. The Stamina Templar PVE build offers insane single-target and AOE damage. Templars generally have great tool kits for self-heals, and the rotation for Stamina Templars or Stamplars are the simplest in the game, so they’re a great option for newer players. In ESO, the Stamina Templar is perfect for everyone who is looking for a simple-rotation survival class with a complete set of tools for solo PvE gameplay.

ESO Solo Templar Stamina Build for PvE Playstyle

Use the following rotation as the starter point. After, apply your buffs and cast the DoT skills on cooldown for the best, highest DPS. In total, the Damage over Time skills (DoTs) do more damage than your main spammable. Thus, they need to be cast less often and are easier to maintain, for example, The Degeneration from Mages Guild or the Barb Trap from Fighters Guild. Maintain DoTs and use your spammable skill as filler until you need to reapply the DoTS.

At certain percentages, replace your spammable with your in-class or weapon execute if you have one in this build. Executes are the skills that deal more damage the lower the opponent’s health. Ideally, these are meant to replace your main spammable skill at anywhere between 35% (Radiant Oppression) all the way to 20% (Mages’ Fury). At a high level, execute skills become so strong that the lower the enemy’s health, the fewer DoTs you maintain because it does so much damage.

Survival

Use the healing skill when your health drops below 50% or the shield skill when you anticipate damage. Also, always use the suggested food and potions as they significantly increase your damage, survivability, and resource sustain.

If you run out of resources, do a heavy attack and return to your rotation. Remember that a heavy attack on off-balance enemies will return double the resources. Additionally, if you are a beginner or struggle with sustain, you can flex in the Consuming Trap skill instead of a DoT skill. The Consuming Trap floods both resources when a target dies.

Skills

Front Bar – Flame Staff

Front Bar Weapon choice options:

  1. Destruction Staff
  2. Dual Wield
  3. Two Handed

Biting Jabs (Morph of Puncturing Strikes | Skill Line : Aedric Spear) – Our main spammable in AoE and single target. This lacks the healing of magicka sweeps, so be careful to peel back when needing healing.

Power of the Light (Morph of Backlash | Skill Line : Dawn’s Wrath) – Consider this a great single target damage ability that gives a good boost to ultimate generation. I use this morph now because its easier to sustain magicka.

Radiant Glory (Morph of Radiant Destruction | Skill Line : Dawn’s Wrath) – One of the best executes in the game, use in replacement of jabs at 38% on a boss.

Deadly Cloak (Morph of Blade Cloak | Skill Line : Dual Wield) – Great damage in AoE and AoE damage reduction.

Solar Barrage (Morph of Solar Flare | Skill Line : Dawn’s Wrath) – Powerful area damage and long duration.

Flawless Dawnbreaker (Morph of Dawnbreaker | Skill Line : Fighters Guild) – The performance of Dawnbreaker is very good now that it grants a massive spell damage boost of 300 for 20 seconds. Not to mention added spell damage from Fighters guild, Slayer passive. This is a great ultimate to use that’s low cost.

Back Bar – Bow

Back Bar Weapon choice options:

  1. Bow
  2. Two-handed
  3. Dual Wield

Arrow Barrage (Morph of Volley | Skill Line : Bow) – Physical damage AoE, this morph increases duration and damage.

Venom Arrow (Morph of Poison Arrow | Skill Line : Bow) – Powerful damage over time with master’s bow buffs overall damage. Poison Injection is a better choice if you have Igneous Weapons from the DK tank.

Ritual of Retribution (Morph of Cleansing Ritual | Skill Line : Restoring Light) – Massive AoE damage and cost magicka.

Resolving Vigor (Morph of Vigor | Skill Line : Assault) – Healing over time, swap to vampire’s bane if you have good survival.

Restoring Focus (Morph of Rune Focus | Skill Line : Restoring Light) – Grants Major Resolve for 20 seconds and recover stamina and health.

Shooting Star (Morph of Meteor | Skill Line : Mages Guild) – One of the best pure damage ultimates in the game and try to use during stationary fights.

Race

The best racial choice for the Stamina Templar is below:

  1. Dark Elf: Gain max magicka, stamina, and weapon and spell damage. The flame resistance is also helpful and considered the strongest overall PVE DPS race.
  2. Orc: Gain weapon damage and max stamina, though there is no magicka bonus.
  3. Khajiit: This race gets recovery, max stats, and critical damage and healing. Consider the Khajiit a great option if you aren’t over the critical cap of 125%.

Attributes

The best choice is 64 stamina, which increases damage, healing, and DoTs.

Mundus Stone

The Thief is the best Mundus Stone for PvE Builds because it gives Increases Weapon and Spell Critical Strike a chance.
