1-Bar Magicka Templar Solo PvE Build for Elder Scrolls Online
Welcome to my 1-Bar Magicka Templar build and my first written build guide for ESO! This build is designed for solo PvE gameplay and is intended for players who for whatever reason (disability, internet lag, or simply because you want a SIMPLE & EASY build) can’t or don’t want to constantly have to bar swap. The build is focused on AoE damage so it’s great for killing trash, but it still has enough kick to deal with bosses. I’ve included a second bar setup focused on single target damage if you would like to take bosses out a little faster, but this is entirely optional.
All points into Magicka
Blue food giving you Max Health and Max Magicka is cheap and effective.
Trash Essence of Magicka is fine in most situations, otherwise Spell Power (Corn Flower, Lady’s Smock, Water Hyacinth) or Spell Critical (Lady’s Smock, Namira’s Rot, Water Hyacinth).
The Shadow (Crit Damage)
High Elf (Altmer)
Racial (all). Light Armor (all, can skip Grace). Heavy Armor – (Resolve, Constitution, Juggarnaut). Destruction Staff (all). Aedric Spear (all). Dawn’s Wrath (all).
