The Templar class is considered as the best tanking class in the Elder Scrolls Online from its impenetrable defense and sun magic at disposal to bolster allies or smite enemies. For starters, the Templar gameplay is very similar to a paladin or crusader in other MMO in the ways of how the class interacts directly with other characters. There are three main skill lines for the Templar as followings:

  • Aedric Spear
  • Dawn’s Wrath
  • Restoring Light

Bringing spells like Focused Charge to the table to disorient your opponent and then finishing them off with a melee combo knock down like Puncturing Strikes. This skill line is best for those who are into PvP combat or like to do melee damage.

The next skill line would be Dawn’s Wrath, which focuses more on spellcasting AoE type skill set. This particular templar skill guide line is very key for a group or raid due to how much the spells in this skill line interact with many opponents. For example, most of the spells in Dawn’s Wrath are not only AoE, but also have some type of secondary status effect, whether it’s damage over time, snare, stun or even damage mitigation, Dawn’s Wrath will always have some impact on the bigger picture in larger conflicts, like a raid setting.

Last but not least, Restoring Light. One of the more iconic skill line’s of the Templar class, it offers a lot of defensive healing utility for you and your class partner. With a whole arsenal of holy light spells at your disposal like Restoring Aura which functions as a heal over time aura. One spell that has proven itself useful time and time again is Restoring Light’s ultimate spell, Rite of Passage. A channeled spell, it reduces damage in an AoE radius near the caster.

If you’re looking to get into tanking for PvE game play, consider dipping into the Aedric Spear skill line first for easier leveling as suggested in elderscrollslevelingguide.com then branching off into Dawn’s Wrath for the AoE spells which will help mitigate lots of unwanted damage. Regardless of your choice, make sure to get a blend of spells that compliment each other perfectly for your role.
