I like a lot the eso-skill style, clean and easy to read with all the info we want on passives and armor repartition.
what build planner is that in the 2nd to last screenshot?

Hey deltia great builds and videos, would you still recommend Imperial for this build? I heard you mention Altmer and Breton but not Imperial.
Not so much since I prefer magicka based racials for more damage, though Imperial is great all around.
Ah that makes sense as the shredder build is so focused on magicka, thanks
So an altmer would be a solid choice?
Great build! I just started playing a templar, and originally wanted to go for a stamina build with a two hander and bow, but this seems so much more interesting! Is it a problem if I have an Imperial? My bonus to stamina is not exactly relevant any more with this build…
Not optimal for more damage, but you’ll be more tanky.
How on earth do you get 29k health with so few attribute points in Health, only magic-buff armor enchants, and only one set item health boost (from Arena set)? Especially if your faction controls very little of Cyrodiil?
Cyrodiil non-vet doesn’t factor in attribute points, I point that out in the video.
I know… There’s no way he can have 29k health with only 4 health attribute points. In the video he only has 19k health.
Why would you delete my comment?
Nevermind, just my browser acting up.
I respecd at lvl 19 and moved my points into magicka, and things are much smoother! Great build, I’m going to subscribe on youtube 🙂
I’ve only deleted two comments, ever 🙂
Is this build viable for vet pvp still
It can work.
@Deltia can you put the passives like in this build in the laceration dk guide?
Yeah the updated one I’ll start using that style.
How come this is not for VR1+ levels?
Because I rerolled four new characters and making progressions videos.
Hmm didn’t word that right.
How come this is not for use at VR1+ levels? Obviously the Attribute points will need changing but other than that?
Because my Templar on DC faction for PvP is only VR1 now. With many new players returning or starting the game, I rerolled to focus on low level builds and progress moving forward. I can do elite high end builds, but than 1% of my audience will enjoy them.
I am not complaining about the lack of high end VR builds i am asking what stops this build from being useful after VR1.
Nothing other than using Jesus beam.
Im back to the game recently and finding your guides very helpful.
Have some questions, how would this or similar build work above vr1?
And can it work with nord. I know its not ideal class but i love it and want to make it work
You’d have access to different skills and gear so yeah it would change, but the skills not so much. Really you’d probably roll with Seducers/Arch Mage gear or another high spell power combination.
Great walkthrough and build. Thanks!
Could you possible sum up all the skill points set in the passives as structured as you listed your other things for this build :)?
Love your work and videos to, keep them up!
As I update them and progress, yes.
I like this build. The number one bar is almost the same as my current Breton Templar. I think that the second bar brings more to the fight than what I sm using…thanks.
I’m returning for the first time in 6 months with my v12 imperial temp. I use seducer, willows path, warlock and wrath of the imperium 3 set. I really want to try a stamina build but in pvp it seems like I’m only useful as a group healer. Can you point me in the right direction? If I should just stick with magicka then so be it but I’m kinda lost.
Well you can’t heal with stamina and it’s hard near impossible to properly dual spec. Stamina DPS is king in PvP, but people still need healing in PvP so I’d stick with magicka. Jesus beam FTW.
which ability is jesus beam?
Waiting for a Templar tank build for PvE. Meanwhile I’m going to level my imperial with this build 😀
Thank you very much.
The build is awesome and i especially like the form to show the build and attribute point in the picture. Thank you for sharing this with us.
Joshua Jones says
So I see this is a dark elf and that it used to be an imperial but I was curious if you have an imperial class of any type that really shines. I wanted something that gives you that little edge over everyone else in that build because I got the imperial edition. Does something like that even exist? Thank you again, unbornwolf
I would try this build as an Imperial. You do lose some of your damage but you also gain quite a bit in tanking ability.
Yeah it’s called stamina Templar not magicka.
True, if you look at bar one though and replace puncturing sweeps for biting jabs you got a nice start for an imperial stamina templar.
I enjoy the shredder immensely, thanks for this.
Love all ur videos but I was wondering why u or at least that I’ve seen do any tank builds. Would love to see that or point me in the direction if u have already done one.
My T3 build here and YouTube which I’ll need to update.
Great guide. If I have no interest in going vampire, is Dunmer still the obvious choice? You say in the video that Breton has more of a PvE-focus, what is the reasoning behind that?
Will there be an updated guide once you get higher in levels?
No, go High Elf for sure.
How to you set up your bars after you get Radiant destruction?
You’ll have to wait 🙂
could you please update this , i have followed this and am trying to copy this all the way through leveling up
what is better for the pvp at a Templar magika build? Altemer for the 10% regem or Breton for the % magika reduction and the spells resistence?
I forgot to say, if um planing to go as a vampire to pvp, should consider more the breton spell resist, altmmer regem or dummer fire resist?? thx again
Your choice really.
I don’t get it your title says this is for pvp and solo play and then your video states right at the start this is not for solo play …which is it? I am really looking for best solo dps/survive, does this not work?
Would a Breton be better for this PvP content or stick with Dunmer for fire resistance?
this will be my first build on xbox one! one question tho.. will i be able to play/solo 1-30 using sword and shield and resto staff? or will i have no dps
I have the same question. I was wondering if you could use the Omega build to level and then respec?
Hey I really want to create a paladin build on xboxone sword/shield Templar like this build , any tips on race/ early skills to dump points into ? Should I be solely magic or is a stamina build possible ? Your advice is greatly appreciated
I gave my tips in the video.
This will really help me out
Hey Deltia! I just bought ESO (Imperial Edition) for PS4 and started following you! Wanted to say great content m8! I just started an imperial templar, I want to be useful as a healer, but also be able to tank and do decent damage (especially for levelling solo 1-50). What would you recommend? I was thinking splitting Magicka/HP/Stamina Equally. Is that bad or good? Thanks in advance
I don’t split it, but Imperial is the best all around choice for a race.
I definitely want to try this build, I’ve been having a hard one finding what to do since I love to heal, but I also crave to jump into the action and do some dps. Question though, as a vet, what skill would you replace with Jesus beam?
could you use this for soloing pve at all or no? i want the tankeniss with a little dps + being able to heal a little on the fly plus some friends which build would work best?
I did while leveling.
okay cool thats what im doing
Adam Santamarina says
you should do the omega pvp build, I’d like to see how the shredder and the omega go face to face in compassion in pvp.
Also you should work on a yolo pve build for templar like you did with your DK.
Does it matter if I’m imperial? I was using it for a Templar tank build, but see that you are a dark elf.
It matters, but Imperial is good.
Hey man, assuming your still using this build (or an approximation thereof) at vr6, what would you roll with for gear?
I switch over to the Omega build at that point and start doing more PvE until VR14 than do both.
I saw this aftwe i started my guy. Is redguard decent at all? I see they have some shield passives. Or should i turn back now
It’s to leveling the skill line, so does nothing for you at end game.
Can u make the shredder build for pve as well? And is the dummer or imperial a better choice for that build?
Can this build be applied to group pve. I play with my friends often and it looks perfect with dps one side and healer other. Would the attributes change at all?
Yes if you have a taunt, attributes aren’t that important find what works for you.
tiny b words says
This build is ok. Ive met many and i destroy this build. I wont give out mine either as to it will be prominent then. Just read the passives you guys. Counter the builds hes handing out. There are more than 2 builds that are viable. I run naked moat of the timw in non vet. Passives matter.
Tony Adams says
Thanks for all the good intel, love the site. I play a templar healer (rsham from wow days).
Just tried out your shredder build and im loving it! I had to make 3 changes (mostly because of unleveled skills like 1h/spear) Also i tend to live in LFG to heal…
Bone shield for sun shield.
(Dont have sun yet+good pve synergy)
Dark flare for reflective light and defensive stance for a second breath of life. Also good aoe and dot for reflective and no cast time to catch you off guard…Havent unlocked D stance but shield/breath covers nearly all the healing in dungeons.
Phew ok all that said heres my long question…
Could werewolf work as the second ultimate for 1h shield?
Hots down, shield up.
Then beast mode.
Saw you had lycan on build, but nova ultimate…leaning to wolfy to suppliment shredder.
Tony Adams says
Great guide, love the build, just swtiched to it after playing resto/destro from the beginning. Had to modify 3 things because i live in LFG to heal and I dont have the skills necessary in 1h or ad spear. Just hoping for thoughts on the 3 changes for helping in pve content, as well as mixing in lycan for non heal ult.
1. Dropped move speed in dungeons for an extra breath of life to heal comfortable w both weap w basicly the 1 key spell
2 swapped dark flare for reflective light, aoe dot dmg is nice, buff, plus skills to give ult makes it better for dungeon trash imo. Plus no cast time fuck ups lolol.
3 swapped sun shield for the undaunted bone shield. The aoe hot and this shield can usually sustain groups with a quick flash heal here or there. Then i can spam spear on trash pulls and we haul ass.
Will this playstyle sustain into higher content?
Could lycan be a good second ult for the 1h bar? Hots, shields, popwolf?
Healing decent at 38 atm. In dungeons im usually pacing the tank and chain pulling groups without much trouble. And i feel like bone shiel has saved my ass when oom on some bosses. Thoughts?
Thanks in advance.
You can modify the build as you see fit, but the skills I used work best for me. Reflective Light doesn’t do near the damage as Dark Flare and Bone Shield soaks up your stamina.
Tony Adams says
Fml sorry, thought it deleted my first attempt.
Tony Adams says
To top it off i failed. Missed 4th thing, the HoT from resto staff goes in the run speed spot. Morphed for better tics faster its 16 sec hot, 12 sec hot from purify, pop shield, then tank is good for dps dump (wolf) for 10 seconds or so?
Sorry new to forums lol.
Is it a good idea to use both the destruction and restoration staff at the same time? Will it consume too much magicka? I’m playing as an altmer by the way. 🙂
Hello, you have:,,,, PvE ?
I have Templar Imperial + Vampire.
I only play PvE .
Sorry my English is not good,I’m from Germany.
Thank you !
I like this build a lot.
And I really like your content.
My question is.. I’m trying to find a way to wear heavy armor and incorporate the rune focus morph into this build.
I’d like to go 5/2 Heavy /light. But everything I read heavy is useless in pvp. I just turned vet rank 1 and I’m in the top 100 on ps4 in the most popular pvp campaign.
But I feel a bit underpowered. Should I stack health and magicka if I wanted to do this? Or just go crazy with magicka like you did?
My bubble seems to go down.. A LOT.
Well you need Engine Guardian for a might magicka and heavy armor build. Until you get that, you’ll be limited with resources.
Jt smooth says
Hey delta, what would be a good build for a high elf with two handed and heavy armor, Im looking for a survivable healing kind of build.
I don’t use that type of build so no idea.
@Deltia, I’ve been experimenting with alot of classes since the ps4 launch and haven’t really found one I love to stick it out to end with. My favorite race so far is the dunmerand class is the templar. I’M used to the final fantasy online class system where i only had to have obe character and could switch classes at any time i wanted. My question is if I rolled a dunmer templar with dunmer getting a racial passive to both stamina and magicka, would I be able to change it up from healer to a magicka dps or even stamina based role on the fly and still be effective in a group or solo? Or even pvp which I have yet to get into. I know it won’t tank as well as an imperial or cast as well as a Breton, but would I be significantly gimped in comparison to them?
Yes, Dunmer is great for switching between stamina/magicka, but if you’re main goal is healing stick with Breton hands down.
I only plan to heal in when when healers are hard to find, from past experience fewer players were playing healers in other mmos. In your oppinion would I be better off going dragonknight and healing when necessary with the restoration skill line? I mainly like to switch between dps and tanking. But heal when a healer isnt readily available. Ugh. I’m just gonna make both! Thanks for the reply deltia, keep doin what you do I enjoy the content.
You cannot beat Templar healers, but Dragonknights do make a good second.
Can you give any thoughts on a Orc Templar build?
Don’t play Orc…
Simple question. Honest answer. Would a destruction staff/restoration staff build using high elf work? Putting mostly all points in magicka.
Could you also be a vamp, instead of ww ?
If you have a lot of CP to mitigate fire damage.
What armour and cp would you use for a v7 imperial i pretty much use your bar one and the warlock set with seducers and torugs pact. Reccomend anything other than the arena too
Would this be good for end game aswell? I’m VR4 and wondering because I currently use this build.
Yeah but it’s meant for leveling. I’ll probably update after Imperial City launch.
I am a Nord, is this going to be an issue with this type of build?
You’d have to work on resource regeneration for sure.
I got 3 questions:
1. Why does one part say 39 Magika and 4 Health and the other says 30 Magika and 15 health?
2. Could this Templar DPS build use a 2 handed weapon instead of any of the other weapons?
3. Could this build be used for Solo play for PvE?
Hope someone can answers these questions ASAP, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you 🙂
are you releasing a stam based pve Templar tank build anytime soon ?
Hey Deltia, what you do for campion points for the shredder? And is this build useful after Veteran Rank 1?
Deltia, Hi I am in love with this build but was wondering if i was trying to run the shredder as a more pve based build, which race would be best?
With this build, would becoming a vampire benefit at all? Was curious as I was contemplating on becoming one for the devouring swarm ultimate.
I have the same question as Moses^^
Will you be updating the Shredder build with Vampirism instead of Lycanthropy? Thanks Deltia!!!
would it be okay to use a two hander instead of sword and board? then use crit rush as the gap closer with uppercut or reverse strike.
Is what race you are a game-breaker? Because I have a Argonian Templar that I use and was thinking about resetting the skills to match the shredder. I just wanted to know if i should restart my build because I only get a couple hours a day to play and I am already level 30.
No, but it does make a difference.
I just started an argoinan Templar. Do you think it will work for this build? Or should I make a new character?
Imperial Hype says
Hi this website is full of awsome content and your videos are really helpful. I already have an imperial templar tank but wanted too make another one but magic based like this for imperial city,cant deside.
I am using this build currently. My Templar runs sword/shield and restro with five medium one light and one heavy on armor. She is using five Arena and two Torgus Pact for armor and Torgus for her weapons. Do you see any major changes for this setup with the release of IC? I want to use her for PVP as well as PVE. Currently she is level 32 so if I need to change anything it shouldn’t be too hard right now. Thanks!!
I’m just curious, what made you decide to totally scrap the Imperial “Bubble Trouble” build with the update? I made an imperial templar to do that build, but is it no longer the most effective technique for bubble trouble?
I rerolled and wanted something with more magicka.
Okay, so I take it this doesn’t make the “Bubble Trouble” build inferior? Just a variation?
Just wondering about your thoughts on my version. I’ve played with a similar style for 40 levels and have had good success (got emperor on Xbox), but never thought about the build much – I’m just good at combat. I’m always pushing the front lines tanking and healing while (trying) to do some damage. I like to do a little extra healing though and a little less damage – because of my groups, I’m fine with mainly being a tank/healer with just enough dps to get 1v1 kills.
I am an Imperial, level 10 vampire with sword and board, restoration staff and 7 heavy armor (never thought of using 2 or 3 armor types – do you have a suggestion?).
I find myself often struggling with stamina resource management. Would having blazing shield, defensive stance, and retreating maneuvers help with that? Should I use immovable? Should I include some attribute points in stamina (particularly at VR)?
As a vampire, I’ll definitely run devouring swarm instead of Nova, but I’m wondering if it’d be worth it to use essence drain and mist form. And should I invest some gear in fire resistance?
Finally, because I like to do a little more healing, what restoration staff heal should I use (if any)? I currently use grand healing and rapid regeneration (mutagen).
My armor suggestions are in here, if you lack stamina go with medium. If you lack stamina, Immovable will only drain you of resources. I don’t use fire resist as a vamp and don’t use it anymore. If you’re a templar, heal with breath of life, no staff needed.
I have been using this guide and I am lvl 36 now. But I find I am lacking damage. I have my attribute points on Magika and im using a 2 handed weapon, but I find I am still very weak. Please help! Iv been told Templars can do great damage, but I don’t see it :/
I have a wood elf Templar and I use one hand and shield with a bow, I need a build with it that does high dps any suggestions?!
i dont like this build. ive been trying to find a build that might enhance mine but i cant find any. ANY ONE LOOKING FOR PURE DPS BUILD FOR PVP READ HERE:
for set pieces: 4 piece twighlights embrace (craftable), 2 piece worm cult, 2 piece torugs pact (craftable), 2 piece cyrodills light rings. each of these are focused on spell damage. for traits on the piece put mundus stone increased and activate the atronach mundus stone which increases your magicka recovery. put max magicka on all armor piece for enchantment. put increase spell damage on your jewelry.
On bar 1 you can run the duel wield torugs pact swords which gives you the spell damage increase and allows for another 2 piece set to put into your armor. and skills you want to run: puncturing sweep (puncturing strikes morph), radiant oppression (radiant destruction morph), breath of life (rushed ceremony morph), dark flare (solar flare morph) toppling charge (focused charge morph), meteor (mages guild ultimate)
For bar 2 run whatever weapon. can do torugs pact again just to keep the skills for it but no necessary. for skill run harness magic (light armor skill morph), blazing shield (sun shield morph), Entropy (mages skill line), channeled focus (rune focus morph)
passive are going to be too long to type out so basically just put passive anymore that enhances your attributes such as increase recovery, increase max stats, increase resistances.
when in combat be on bar 2 and before you start fighting pop harness magic, then channeled focus, then hit the target with sun shield thenhit them with total dark and switch to bar one then hit them with toppling charge, then puncturing sweep, then dark flare, then radiant oppression. if they are dead but close then hit them with radiant oppression again because is does 300% more damage to low health enemies. if you have your meteor ultimate then hit them with that instead of toppling charge.
But with that armor set up you have a lot of damage. Like my friend right now is a level 47 with 1460 base spell damage. when he hits the enemy with entropy it goes up to 1700 roughly and he runs potions that increase his spell damage and magicka recovery which then puts him at almost 2000 spell damage at level 47. and magicka recovery is important too. my v14 templar has almost 2600 magicka recovery after i pop a potion and channeled focus so i pretty much just cast spells for free. i hope this helped. any questions you have just msg me on xbox. gt is xCaLeBXxX845x and i will try and help you as much as i can. just play around with this set and use the skills to your extent. whatever you feel works for you. my level 47 friend runs a couple different skills but almost the same as mine and we just walk through enemies in PvP.
really? you guys removed my comment? what are you upset that i posted a better build than you and you dont want other people to see it? anyone needs help on their build, msg me on xbox: gt is xCaLeBXxX845x
Caleb I tried to add you on xbox but couldn’t find you my gt: OsA AandW …. Thanks for the post I’m gonna try it!
Would it possible to switch the sword and board with two handed
Yeah he made a new build recently called the harvester. It uses 2 handed skills duel wielding skills and a few similar skills to this build.
hi deltia do u prefer high elf or dark elf templar for pvp and pve
Dark Elf PvP/ High for PvE
Hey Deltia, so I have an argonian templar (veteran rank 1)and I just found your website not to long ago. Is there anything skill and attribute wise that I could do to help my character with magika and health?
Channeled Focus for sure.
Hello Deltia, I enjoy the build lay out; but, I was just curious if this build could use nothing but heavy armor as a imperial? Thanks
You’d be hard press to cast many abilities.
Deltia I really enjoy some of your builds. I still run the bubble trouble and do awesome with pvp. I was wondering if you are gonna make a new pvp build for the new patch coming in sept for us Templars?
Could this build possibly be effective with a Nord? I really don’t want to start a new character just to change my race.
Nords suck, just being honest.
Can you help me understand how you are getting the attribute values shown. I have a V14 that I was trying this build with and can not even come close. Mainly Health and Stamina other than the 1475 health and 945 stamina you get from arena I can not see where the rest is coming from.
Is there by any chance of a update for v rank 14 soon with champ points done?
Is there gonna be a update for veteran 14 any time soon ?
Is the Restoration staff only for the Passives it has? I don’t get it.
I’m thinking about to level up in dungeons when using this build, which role should I take?
Im planning to start over im planning to make a templar which one u recomenen for dp magickal or stamina
Depends, newer players magicka.
Ohok thanks im going breton magicka temp then
Yeah with what deltia said, magicka is way easier to manage yourself, staying alive and damage. But stamina is just as easy because of repentence so it’s really up to what you want to play.
Hey mate, I was wondering if you knew that your PDF version and the picture of attributes you have shown are actually different values?
PDF lists: Health 14 and Magicka 30
Picture lists: Health 4 and Magicka 39
Which one of the values would be better to follow?
Also I may have completely missed this in the build but is there a preference for CP allocation?
Do the picture, sometimes I change them if I’m playing different specs. I didn’t do CP in this build since it’s lowbie, but follow the same as Omega.
Where do I put my champion points to make this build work best?
Try stamina leather end 2wield 2hand its realy good for 1v1 pvp.got high dps/weapon crit end overtime heal
Quick question I’m absolutely new to this game and not quite understanding one thing that you did. Free your weapon selection you have a restoration staff but under your skills you have nothing unlocked from that weapon. my question is what is the point of having a restoration staff and no abilities unlocked from it or you just using it for the passive abilities?
It’s for passives and the ability to range attack to gain ultimate and magicka.
Awesome thanks I’m a total noob to this. Also is there a link for a video like your other builds? I see the block for it on the page but there’s no actual link to click. and another question sorry to talk to your ear off lol. what is the champion point layout for this I can’t find it on this page seem to find it on this page
Ryan B says
Hey I’m new to ESO and trying to stay on course with your build as I level up and Im really liking the playstyle with it so far. But I’ve noticed quite a few of the skills have changed or been renamed and at times it’s making it kind of difficult to translate. Is there any chance there’s a more updated version of this build somewhere?
Well the skills have stayed the same and I suggest Omega for a magicka leveling build.
Ryan B says
Sorry only 1 had changed. And I think you fixed it. Thank you Deltia!
What gear would you want to use for this in vet pvp?
5pc Heavy Julianos, 2 Engine Guardian, 3 Willpower 2 Torugs Pact
Sorry for the double comment. Do you recommend anything else in the mean time while I get engine guardian? And also would wearing the 5 piece heavy julianos and engine take away the need for any light armor passives? Thank you very much Deltia any guidance is much appreciated!!
I just noticed you just had gear for non vet but you said this build is still viable for end game pvp, anyway you could give us a suggestion of what sets to look for? Still 1h/ shield and resto?
Would this build be viable in pve too? I been following the omega build but want to be more tanky since I play coop a lot. Any certain changes for pve?
Yes but I’d look at Omega for mag version or Harvest for Stamina one.
I’ve been following the omega build and like the damage but want to play more as a tank. Heavy armor omega??
Deltia any chance you could make a PvE Templar tank build/guide?
What’s the best race class combination
For what? Stamplar? I like imperial
For A tank Templar
Seriously good site. Amazing you keep so much info up with the effort of basically 1 or a hand full of human beings . Nice videos on alot of parts backing up the text input, i was noted to this website by an ingame player when i started to play barely amonth ago. As the RPG fan i am i basically prefer to make my own builds or adjust things he way i feel theres need to. Still regularly i have ben checking out this site. And when i started a Templar a few days ago i came to visit here again. Do i agree on all. No i don’t I know alot players want those pure DPS HPS based playstyles. In many mmos i prefer Hybrid Possibilities. I noticed weapon styles E.G. Dual wield using 15 points on stamina makes spellpower more powerfull then. Destro staff with 15 extra points into magicka. Id love to see som in depth hybrid buildtypes. Cuz i believe a loss of 300 dmg for a spell is neglectible on terms of some added utility, sustainability or even if it just adds to a more versatile experience playing a certain char. I also noted how some abilities on sorc scale with max HP. E.G. DarkExchange restores more.. Disintegration hits at a higher amount..I suppose more classes have HP scaling abilities and for some reason some AP spread out may seem uncommon but more usefull as acknowledged in general. What are your thoughts on that topic??
Anyway keep this up ill be checking in once in a while to search some info here and there. I would have donated some sadly my health doesnt give me much spare to change. Instead i will advice others to come here for some info in the same way someone made me end up here. Sadly thats the least i can do.My kind regards a fellow rpg dude.
Deltia whats your suggestion for class and racial for tank pvp in the new patch? I want to create a tank but not sure what to be.
Play what you want, I always level my Templar and personally stamina is great now. If you’re looking for a PvP tank, you can’t beat a Dunmer DK.
Hey Deltia, thanks for the guide! Will this build get updated for Champion Pints distribution?
Yeah but that build is very gold for non vet which doesn’t use CP now. Trying to find a novel way to heal/tank something on Templar then I’ll update it for end game.
Awesome! I’m really looking forward for updates on the build, and keep up the good work!
Love the build! I’m using a stamina variant of this tanking at Vet 3 currently. Using 5 Heavy 2 Light, HistBark and Warlock. Imperial.My biggest issue is Stamina totals and regen. I can heal and shield through it, I just cant help but feel there is a better way.
Considering swapping HistBark for Arena, TBS, or maybe even WillowsPath. Any thoughts?
Excited for a Deltia quality end game tank build posted ! Keep it up.
I’ll double post instead of leaving an obnoxious link, sorry.
Bar 1 : Puncture, Blazing Shield, Punct.Sweeps, Repentance, Absorb Magic, Solar Prison
Bar 2: Brawler, Restoring Focus, Purifying Ritual, Rally, Resovling Vigor, Repentance.
Willows would be a good option.
Thanks! Will try it out tonight. Will let you know how it goes.

I can’t tell how you put your attribute points. Is it 38 Magika 4 health? Or 30 magika and 15 health?

Also, I’m currently trying to make this exact build, sort of a new player. Is all this still viable in the current version of the game? With the dark brotherhood about to come out?
No, this is for Non-Vet but I may make a update depending on heavy armor changes.

Thanks for your reply! Oops :s I’m almost 15 and I’ve been building this exact build on Xbox one, I really liked the idea of it. I figured it would be a great way to learn the game and really get competitive about the pvp. I wonder if I can respec..
If you want to play a Templar tank should you go stamina or magicka? You’ll need stam to block, but Blazing Shield is too OP and it goes with magicka…
You’ll need to experiment with you, but both is useful.
Ok. Thanks, man 🙂
Is this build still super with the dark brotherhood dlc out?
It’s outdated and needs an update like many other builds. I’ll post the date it changes and add it to the main menu when current.
Doing great man! Keep it up
I’m using this build for the basic building blocks of the character until I can try new things out.
Considering how used to a Breton Night blade I am, it seems to be doing pretty good, but I suppose that could be because I’m not even close to higher level monsters or even participating in PvP.
Is this still a viable build? I see no dates anywhere on he article. I’m overwelmed and completely frustrated with trying to find a decent build
No I’m updating my Templar tank as soon as I get one more neck of Alkosh.

Hey Deltia, can you make an updated version of this build?
Yes its good with Alkosh.
