What is the Prominent Guide for the Templar?

When you are looking for a game guide. it’s important to ask yourself what kind of guide are you looking for and your style of play. If you’re interested in making the best use of your time when playing as a Templar, then you will want a guide that specializes outlining the most efficient progression route for this class. You will also want a high quality guide that is also inexpensive. There is nothing worse than dropping $40 on a guide that fails to answer all of your questions. Aside from how specific the guide is written for the purposes of playing as a Templar, other factors include how up-to-date and detailed the rest of the information listed is so you will have a general grasp of the game as a whole. So let’s examine the following three guides.

The Unofficial Elder Scrolls Online Templar Guide by Scott Campbell

elder scrolls online templar guide

This elder scrolls online templar guide has a strong emphasis on revealing the most efficient routes toward character progression and expediting the grinding process toward level 50. In addition, it details information on how to play an offensive, support, or defensive role as the Templar class.

This guide respects your time and claims you will reach level 50 in less than seven days. The author has written it in a clear and easy-to-follow style that benefits both newbies and veterans. Furthermore, the guide shows you how to level your Templar character solo so you don’t have to rely on others to carry you through the harder mobs.

The author acknowledges that some quests are more profitable than others. He outlines these profitable quests and aims to reduce the time you spend questing blindly. This also means you will avoid mind-numbing grinding. Furthermore, the guide presents you with three “core” Templar builds with room for experimentation. These builds are effective in both PvE and PvP settings.

This Unofficial Elder Scrolls Online Templar Guide offers strategies explaining how to maximize your character’s damage output so you can focus on strategy and execution rather than min-maxing your build. The information in it is up-to-date with the current patch. In addition, this guide is the least expensive of the three, priced at $29.99.


home-page-imageThe ESO Mastery Guide aims to reduce the amount of time you spend leveling up your character and earning money. It also provides advanced strategies for PvE and PvP gameplay. As some players feel overwhelmed by the amount of freedom they’re given in an MMO, this guide outlines progression routes that feel natural and allow you to pick up collectibles along the way. It also specializes in listing crafting paths so you don’t spend too much time wondering if there is better gear you could be working toward.

The thing about MMOs is that what may be true today may be wrong two months after. The authors are well-aware of this fact and promise to keep their guide up-to-date whenever the game receives a patch. In addition, subscription to this guide includes 24/7 customer support.

Although this guide does not specialize in the Templar class (thus, there will be less dedicated manpower geared toward keeping the Templar metagame up-to-date) it does include detailed information regarding the collectibles of the game and maps and locations for crafting materials, something theelderscrollsonlineguide.com fails to mention. It is important to note that there are six different guides altogether and each one is priced at $37.00. Unfortunately, this means purchasing all the information they have to offer would cost more than $200!


bundle-medThe author of this elder scrolls online guide has an extensive background with both the Elder Scrolls series and the MMO scene (e.g., Rift and Lord of the Rings Online). It is mostly geared toward beginner players, but does list detailed information on the endgame as well. Overall, they offer a stronger emphasis on the intricacies of the crafting system and how to make gold in the fastest way possible. It also has a list of every skyshard (i.e., for every three of these collectibles, you will gain an extra skill point) in the game.

The author understands that a game should be fun! Every progression route feels natural and satisfying. Namely, the quest line the author recommends avoid repeating the same dungeon and, thus, every experience will feel fresh as the developers intended. Plus, this guide promises you will reach level 50 in roughly a week.

This guide has a more general outline for each individual class. So if you’re looking to get a feel for each class before committing to one, this guide will give you a snapshot of what it’ll be like to play as one of the four main classes. However, this guide may not have the same amount of detail when it comes to detailing Templar-specific strategies.


Each guide excels in one area more than the other. For example, the theelderscrollsonlineguide.com is only $37.00 and still offers a lot of relevant information about the game. However, the ESO Mastery Guides has the added benefit of having an entire team devoted to keeping the information up-to-date but it can be the most expensive of the three. and might not worth your buck if you’re mainly only interested in mastering the Templar class. If you’re only focus on learning the Templar class, then you will be satisfied with the Unofficial Elder Scrolls Online Templar Guide.

Getting The Templar Class Ready For Both Newbies And Pros Alike

Playing and building a Templar character in The Elder Scrolls Online can be a daunting, complex, but rewarding experience. Because of the game’s much more flexible system of skill lines tied to armor, weapons, guilds, and other non-class factors, anyone who wants to play this crusader-like class and play it well is going to need access to thorough, accurate information about the possible synergies and pitfalls involved in building the best possible Templar.

There are, of course, all sorts of guides available to fill this need, and we’re going to look over the Templar Guide from KillerGuides.net to see how it stacks up. The first thing to notice about the guide is that it’s released in PDF rather than physical format. That should really come standard with modern game guides, of course, especially when we’re talking about frequently patched-and-balanced MMOs. Purchasing the guide gives you perpetual access to all future updates, which is a reassuring proviso as Killer Guides maintains a frequently-updated stable of guides for a wide variety of online games.elder scrolls online templar guide

The second thing to notice about the guide is its sheer near-obsessive thoroughness. This is obviously not just a leveling guide, or a PvP how-to, or a treatise on end-game content. The guide takes a comprehensive look at the Templar class, its advantages and disadvantages, and how to maximize the former while minimizing the latter. This involves discussing not just the three lines of class skills mentioned earlier, but also the various weapon, armor, guild, world, and other skill sets available for this class. The Templar is a class especially in need of such a careful examination, since as well as being arguably the best healing class in the game at the moment, it’s also capable of performing admirably in the DPS and tanking roles.

The sections discussing PvP tips, strategies, and skill loadouts will be especially valuable to more competitive PvP players. Using the tactics and strategies outlined in the guide, you should be able to maximize your alliance point gains and rise through the various alliance ranks as quickly as possible. The guide should also be highly useful in selecting and utilizing the PvP-specific skill lines available. Gear being of high importance in all MMOs, players will appreciate the information available on endgame gearing and equipment sets, including armor, weapons, mounts, and consumables. The guide’s in-depth examination of the complex crafting system will also be extremely helpful for this purpose, and of course for both leveling and endgame PvE play as well.

The guide is similarly thorough in its discussion of how to read the level cap and endgame content with the fastest way available. For hardcore MMO players, this is often considered the true meat of the game. From the looks of it, the exhaustive discussion of rewarding quests and dungeons should help powergamers navigate this essential part of the game with relative ease. Of course, you can’t start the endgame content until you reach max level, and the guide also includes strategies to get there as quickly as possible with a minimum of grind and frustration. Tamriel is a place where you can easily get lost if you don’t know exactly where you’re going. While for some players this can be part of the game’s sandboxy charm, many players are going to want to know exactly where they should ideally be next, and this guide caters to that need.

The guide’s main drawback is also one of its main strengths: no physical product to set next to you as you play. As mentioned earlier, this seems unavoidable given the constant patching and new content releases inherent to the MMO model. Be prepared to do a lot of Alt+Tabbing or to print off the parts you use most. Of course, this also means the guide can’t be lost or damaged- not even off your hard drive, since updates and re-downloads are free after your purchase.

All told, the guide looks as though it would be a valuable and (digitally) well-thumbed companion both for aspiring Templars and old hands who want to up their game. It can be purchased and downloaded at their website here.
