Stamina Templar PvP Build
Stamina Templar PvP Build

This build has been updated for the Update 40 patch of the Elder Scrolls Online.

Why Should You Play ESO Stamina Templar PvP Build?

The ESO Stamina Templar PvP Build build is for players that are looking to play battlegrounds or Cyrodiil content with a well-rounded class. The ESO Stamina Templar PVP build offers some hard-hitting burst, high mobility and great survivability. What makes the Stamplar PvP build unique is the healing and burst damage it has.  This class with base game skills and easy-to-access gear options can be very effective right from the start of the game.  The downside is, with Update 35 in ESO, Biting Jabs skill was nerfed very hard. But, you can adapt the build for more of a damage over time Stamplar PvP build and feel just as dominant.  Thus, this build will reflect ESO’s direction with the class. High survivability and burst damage without the need for Jabs.

Below is a general PvP Guide that can help anyone understand and develop their PvP knowledge and skill. This video is applicable for every build and should be viewed if you want general ESO PvP knowledge that applies to all aspects, Battlegrounds, Cyrodiil, and Imperial City.

Skills Setup 1: Proc Set

Skill Set 1 Front Bar

Rending Slashes (Morph of Twin Slashes | Skill Line : Dual Wield) – Used for damage over time and proc our Master’s Weapons. Flex skill here would be Biting Jabs though it hits very weak. If you prefer two-handed weapon build, swap this out for Dizzying Swing or Wrecking Blow.

Binding Javelin (Morph of Piercing Javelin | Skill Line : Aedric Spear) – A knockback and stun that cannot be blocked used to prime target for a kill.

Power of the Light (Morph of Backlash | Skill Line : Dawn’s Wrath) – Our bursting tool used before our combo of stun/crescent and pop to do huge damage.

Radiant Glory (Morph of Radiant Destruction | Skill Line : Dawn’s Wrath) – Our execute that heals based on damage done.

Living Dark (Morph of Eclipse | Skill Line : Dawn’s Wrath) – a super powerful survivability tool that scales off of max health making us very durable.

Dawnbreaker of Smiting (Morph of Dawnbreaker | Skill Line : Fighters Guild) – Good burst ultimate that does AoE damage.

Back Bar

Restoring Focus (Morph of Rune Focus | Skill Line : Restoring Light) – this is your source of major resolve, healing, and resource sustain. Keep this up and move back into the rune if you need healing.

Degeneration (Morph of Entropy | Skill Line : Mages Guild) – We drop cleanse on back bar since we have Mara’s Balm and don’t use Jabs so we need Major sorcerery and this is how we get it.

Elemental Susceptibility (Morph of Weakness to Elements | Skill Line : Destruction Staff) – This is used in conjunction with our Vateshran Frost staff for massive daamge single target and armor reduction.

Honor The Dead (Morph of Rushed Ceremony | Skill Line : Restoring Light) – single target burst heal.

Resolving Vigor (Morph of Vigor | Skill Line : Assault) – stamina based heal over time.

Practiced Incantation (Morph of Rite of Passage | Skill Line : Restoring Light) – Good defensive ultimate in class that doesn’t require a weapon.
