You want to aim for these skills, but the order you slot them is totally a personal preference.
Biting Jabs – Aedric Spear Line – This now is going to give us major brutality and sorcery which will increase our weapon and spell damage which is fantastic, but this skill wrecks, and this is your main single target and aoe target spammable, It is just such a great add and mob clearing skill. It’s also great against bosses as well, but this skill really needs no explanation
Power of the Light – Dawn’s Wrath Line – This actually is a really cool skill that does physical damage and also copies the damage that you do to an enemy and does 50 percent of that damage after 6 seconds back to them. But this is a pretty easy skill to use, but it also applies minor breach to them so we get major breach from caltrops and minor from this, it’s really really nice.
Repentance – Restoring Light Line – So just like a necromancer uses corpses, the templar needs essentially corpses on the ground to use this. But when you use this is will give you health and stamina back per corpse consumed. So essentially you will refill your stam if there is 5 to 6 corpses, it’s insane. The other insane part about this skill is the slottable effect that it has, just for having this on your bar you get minor intellect, fortitude, and minor endurance which increases our mag, stam, and health recovery by 15 percent which is fantastic for sustain.
Stampede – 2h Line – This is another trash mob spammable but it’s mainly on the bar for a item set that we are using which we will get into here soon.
Radiant Oppression – Dawn’s Wrath Line – Which is a ridiculous execute. This is what you will use when the boss is under 50 percent. Now you will still use other skills which we will talk about. But you never use this when enemies are above 50 percent. Again as a high elf we will take less damage while channeling. But this does 500 percent more damage when enemies are below 50 percent health.
Empowering Sweep (Ultimate) – Aedric Spear Line – Our main ultimate, this has such low ultimate cost that we will use this a lot but this does solid damage and even more damage, the more enemies we hit with this. You also get empower which increases your light and heavy attacks by 40 percent for the duration.
Invasion – S&B Line – Yes we have a sword and board on the back bar. Remember this is a paladin so we have to lean into that rp a little bit. But simply put this is an engagement skill. So it’s not meant to dish out tons of damage or anything, but it helps you engage.
Razor Caltrops – Assault Line PvP – One of my favorite skills to use. It is going to dish out some solid damage over time, slow the enemy and apply major breach which reduces their physical and spell resistance.
Mystic Orb – Undaunted Line – This is in the undaunted line, but this is a solid damage over time that will do some nice damage to trash mobs and I can show you how to utilize this to its effectiveness.
Restoring Focus – Restoring Light Line – This is a sustain skill but also a buff and heal as well in some cases. So you will use this before a fight to get major resolve which increases your spell and physical resistances. You will also restore 242 stamina every 1 second, and if you stand in the circle you you will heal for 1337 health every 1 second, so if you need to use this you can during a boss, if you aren’t going to move much.
Blazing Spear– Aedric Spear Line – It is a fantastic damage over time and skill in general.
Remembrance (Ultimate) – Restoring Light Line – This is your oh crap I’m about to die ultimate where you will channel a heal and gain major protection. As a high elf as well we have 5 percent damage reduction while we channel as well.
Progression of Skills from level 3 to 50:
You can slot the first skill on your front bar from each Templar’s skill line. Also slot sword and board skills for the invasion skill eventually. Plus you will need your 2h skills as well. You also need to start doing undaunted dungeons to get mystic orb, and level up your PvP line which I have guide on that in the description of the video. This will level up all your lines accordingly. Slot the skills that you need for the build when they are unlocked.
