Recommended Damage Dealing Skills for the Elder Scrolls Online Templar

The article below could give a good idea on Templars. If you're looking for something more extensive, our friends at Killer Guides have put together an amazing ESO manual . That guide is the cat's pajamas. It not only comes with a slick, class-specific leveling guide, but has some killer information on the best builds and PvP tactics.

The Templar Class has three lines that it can master: Aedric Spear, Dawn’s Wrath, and Restoring Light. Most people believe that this class is mostly a supportive type of class typically healing and supporting allies, however, this is not true.

The Aedric Spear class is predominantly an offensive skill set. This set of skills entails attacking and damage dealing abilities. Additionally, this skill set includes spells that increase the amount of damage dealt by the Templar. The first recommended skill inherent of the Aedric Spear is the Radial Sweep skill. It is a spell that, during gameplay, damages all nearby enemies within a definitive radius. It is an extremely powerful attack that, within a 5 meter range, hits all enemies and becomes more powerful and has a wider range when it is leveled up. Radial Sweep is a fantastic spell for massive combat and has substantial damage dealing capabilities. The more enemies it falls upon, the more effective it is, and the faster experience the Elder Scrolls can gain as seen esolevelguide.com. When it comes to dealing huge damage to multiple enemies, this is the spell other players will ask the Templar to use.

When it comes to dealing damage against a single enemy, however, the Puncture Strikes skill is the way to go. Puncture Strikes is also within the Aedric Skill set and is a series of 4 attacks that damages an enemy with the last attack knocking the foe back. This is not only a great skill because it can be used on only one enemy, but can also be used on several, whether playing solo or in a group. The attack can start by targeting a single enemy, but each successive hit can be used on a different one if they are closing in on the Templar and are within range. The damage is then divided between the enemies that were hit depending on how many times each enemy was struck. This spell is also great because it does not cost that much magicka so can be used frequently. This is also a fantastic skill because if the final attack hits the target he will be knocked back allowing the Templar to cast a ranged spell to attack the enemy again or heal itself or cast a defensive spell.

The final recommended damage dealing skill is also within the Aedric Skill set. It is the Piercing Javelin which is used against a single target. The target will also be knocked back after being hit allowing the Templar to benefit, as discussed above, choosing what they want to do with the increased range from the enemy. It is also highly effective because of its range and can be used on enemies trying to escape.

Build Guild for Solo/Group Templar Gameplay

The article below could give a good idea on Templars. If you're looking for something more extensive, our friends at Killer Guides have put together an amazing digital handbook . That guide is the cat's pajamas. It not only comes with a slick, class-specific leveling guide, but has some killer information on the best builds and PvP tactics.

In the Elder Scrolls Online, it is totally up to you to play solo or as a group to explore the land of Tamriel. Of cause, each type will require different character builds. Here is an example of the popular Templar builds and how they work for each type of gameplay.

Group Build

ESO group playIn a group build, it’s best to observe the ‘holy trinity’ of battle. You need a Tank, Healer, and a Damage Dealer. With the Templar, you can easily be a Tank or Healer. The most important factor in c­­­reating a character for the group dynamic is: your own fighting style. If you prefer evading your assailant, your Templar would be best suited to being a healer. The healing Templar is played well as a member of the Argonian race (Reptilian Humanoids) with its Restoration Staff XP bonus or the Breton with its Magika boosts. The Argonian or Breton Templar builds work best with Medium Armor (for evasion) and, of course, the Restoration Staff.

If you plan to play as a Tank with your party, you will find it advantageous to play as an Altmer. Though Altmer’s abilities are for themselves, the boosts in your Magicka will help you defend your group with your Templar’s Aedric Spear or Dawn’s Wrath abilities more effectively.

Solo Build

When playing solo, your character needs to strike a balance between combat skills and defensive abilities to win in battle. You do not have to spread yourself thin by attempting to become a jack-of-all-trades, but you need to know your strengths, strategies, and how to make up for your weaknesses. Luckily, when you play as the Templar, your character already has the two important natural traits: being a gifted healer and fighter.

As a Templar, choosing the Breton race to maximize the healing power with their Magicka boosts is a solid choice for a group or solo play healer. However, to make balanced character for better solo play, when placing skill points, give your healing Breton Templar some abilities from Dawn’s Wrath or Aedric Spear. The Tank Altmer Templar mentioned in the group build section in elderscrollslevelingguide.com, could also be a better solo player in eso leveling if you give him some of the abilities from the from the Restoring Light skill set. In ESO, you can also combine 2 types of armor for mixed effects any way you like but it is also effective to instead give a Breton healer full heavy armor to make him a healing tank.
