ESO Stamina Templar PVP Build

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

Stamina Templar PVP Build - The Elder Scrolls Online

This build has been updated for the Updated 42, the Gold Road Chapter of the Elder Scrolls Online (ESO).

ESO Stamina Templar PvP Build Gameplay

The Stamplar has no trouble surviving, and stamina gives you a wider range of build choices than magicka does. Templars do have weaker mobility and sustain, but you can solve weaker mobility with the Vampire skill Elusive Mist and resource sustain problems with the monster helm Roksa the Warped.

The Stamplar also has fantastic healing via Honor the Dead and Living Dark and has the strongest execution skill in the game. You use your magicka pool for healing and range damage, while utilizing your stamina for DoTs and bursts. Speaking of burst, you have one of the strongest bursting tools in the game with Power of the Light. When you get a feel for the Templar, you can start to stack other damage sources with your Power of the Light burst to surprise players before they can heal up.

Templar Class Pros

  • Best Execute – Radiant Glory is the best execute in the game, and it heals you based on damage done.
  • Beginner Friendly – You can survive with little effort, holding block and spamming Breath of Life.
  • One-vs-One – Experienced duelers can one-vs-one nearly any class.

Templar Class Cons

  • Weak Sustain – Templars suffer from weak sustain and take multiple skills or sets to carry their resources.
  • Lower Mobility – This is yet another class that has terrible innate mobility.
  • Constant Buff Cycling – Like the Necro, you need to constantly buff to avoid lower resources, damage, or health.

Scribing Skills & Grimoires – ESO Stamina Templar PvP Build

Soul Burst PvP Scripts for ESO
Traveling Knife PvP Scripts for ESO

Traveling Knife and Soul Burst are the two best Grimoires (skills) for a Stamina Templar PvP build. Traveling Knife gives you a ranged bleed attack that acts like Rending Slashes but doesn’t require Master Dual Wield to be effective. Moreover, Traveling Knife can be given a stun in the focus script for classes lacking a ranged stun. Soul Burst is a helpful crowd control and buff skill. You can immobilize, pull, or snare targets and get your favorite minor buffs.

Below are the suggested combination of Grimoires, focus, signature, and affix scripts:

  • Traveling Knife (dual wield) – Bleed or Stun (focus script), Lingering Torment or Assassin’s Misery (signature script), Berserk or Vulnerability (Affix Script)
  • Soul Burst (soul magic) – Immobilize or Pull (focus script), Class Mastery or Lingering Torment(signature script), Courage (Affix Script)

The Scribing System utilizes one of 11 new skills from the Gold Road Chapter called Grimoires. With Grimoires, you can customize spells via Scripts. The scribing feature requires the purchase of the Gold Road Chapter (sponsored link). To learn more about scribing, check out our full guide here.
