eso logoElder scrolls online is a multi-player role playing video game that was developed by ZeniMax Studio back in May 2012 but it is set for release in 2014. The Elders Scroll series is a ‘mission’ kind of video-game. The series is developed in the setting of a serious and epic background.

The various series of Elder Scroll are well known for their consistency in details, well developed back up story and lore. The role playing game is set in the fiction world of Nim in the continent of Tamrel. The Elders Scroll serves as a framing plot device. It gives the story line which was foretold years back – before the actual events happened. The theme of the game is of a grand struggle against a supernatural power of evil force. Some of the series that have been developed before include The Elders scrolls Legend Battlespire, the Elders ScrollIV Oblivion and the Elders Scrolls V Skyrim. With these reasons, some believe that ESO should become the next MMO giant for sure.

The Templar in the Elder Scroll Series

The Templar is one of the four playable classes in the Elders Scroll Series. The Templar, just like the rest of the series that have been produced before, takes place in the fiction world of Nim. The Templar is popular for its unique and advanced class in the Elder Scroll Online series.

The Templar is a knight character who uses the power of light and sunlight to destroy the enemies and rescue himself and his allies. He also possesses unique healing abilities to help his friends. His ability to use the sun and light makes him unique from the other playable characters. The powerful and damaging attacks that are magic-based include: Sun strike, sun fire and burning light.

Sun strike is the Templars primary magic attack. It is powerful, but requires less magic to destroy. Sun fire is a sunlight attack which is more effective and damaging and requires use of more magic than sun strike. Burning light has the ultimate damage effect. It destroys the enemy with every single strike.

Healing is another outstanding skill for the Elder Scrolls Templar. It does not come with a cool-down period; it is quick and effective even when it is done in succession. A developed Templar Healer not only heals but also has the ability to restore health, eradicate negative forces from enemies and lessen damages brought by enemies. The effect of the healing Templar is even felt by allies who are not related to him directly.

The Elders Scroll Online is the first Elder Scrolls serie that will be MMORPG. It is set to give an epic experience to the participants. It is also included a player verses player game between 3 alliances in order to gain full control over 3 imperial cities. The participants will be required to compete with other players on the map in an effort to control strategic locations.

The Templar Skills Guide

Some of the latest updates in the article below are not taken into account yet. However, for a more comprehensive and up-to-date details on advanced strategies, you should take a look into this manual from KillerGuides. This was how I was able to make my Templar reach level 50 within a week. Read my review of the guide here.

The first thing to keep in mind about the Elder Scrolls Online’s templar class is how it fits with the other starting classes, since you can mix and match traits across play styles. The templar is a defensive class, with many skills devoted to healing or protecting yourself or party members. Compared to the dragon knight, it does not have as many melee offensive abilities. It makes an excellent companion to the sorcerer’s long-range damage dealing abilities. When combining skills, the sorcerer’s various crowd control skills and its ability to summon pets compliment the templar’s defensive capabilities, so these two class could be a perfect match. The nightblade looks to be a more stealth-oriented class when compared to the templar.

One entire skill set, Restoring Light, is based on healing, defending and curing status effects. Rushed Ceremony is a healing skill for the panicked player who does not want to wait for casting time to heal in a tight spot. Healing Ritual heals everyone, with the caster receiving the most healing, meaning should it be targeted, it is unlikely the templar will die while repeating the skill. Combined with Rune Focus, which helps against interruption and raises defense while casting, it can keep your healing phase focused and effective.

The templar does have a suite of attack skills to fall back on as well. The Dawn’s Wrath skill set focuses heavily on intelligent damage dealing tactics. It has a passive that helps build your Ultimate skill when using Dawn’s Wrath abilities, while Eclipse, Solar Flare and Nova are excellent multiple-enemy, area attack skills. Backlash can be very helpful while setting into motion other plans, as it stores up the damage the templar has soaked up and returns it on top of some base damage. Sun Fire is a projectile-based attack that deals fire-based magic damage and paralyzes the target temporarily. Having the passive skill of Illuminate on will raise your defense toward any enemy the Dawn’s Wrath skills hit; its an excellent way to raise defense while dealing damage.

Of the three skill sets, the Aedric Spear skill path offers spear-based active skills, and templar skillspassive enhancement to skills based on spears. Puncturing Strikes attacks four times with a magical spear, and the last hit knocks back the closest enemy. As a two-hit combo, Sun Fire to catch the enemy and Puncturing Strikes to deal a lot of damage and knock it back is a strong tactic. Radial Sweep is an Ultimate skill that hits for magic damage in front of you in a wide area by conjuring a weapon. Sun Shield is a damage absorption skill to help protect you, but is best when attacking and good for templar gameplay, since magic will not regenerate while effective. It deals damage when activated and each time its struck.

Remember that the Elder Scrolls Online is still under development. Even when its finished, an MMO’s nature is to be ever-fluctuating. While its basic features will likely remain the same, details about the templar class may change.
