The AURORA Build is the EASIEST Magicka Templar Build you can play in ESO for both Solo and Group Content! With a flexible and EASY One Bar Rotation and No Trials Gear needed this is the ultimate starter build for PVE content!
First, the Sergeant’s Mail set is undoubtedly the strongest Heavy Attack set in the game in terms of raw damage output. Keep in mind though that this effect has a stacking mechanic and you must maintain all 4 stacks in order to receive the highest damage.
We’ve combined this with another Heavy Attack set, Noble Duelist, which buffs all of our Heavy Attacks by a Massive amount and is easy to maintain while in melee range.
The Oakensoul Ring is the new go to Mythic Item that packs a punch for one bar builds, delivering many powerful Major and Minor buffs, and in this case the Heavy Attack buff “Empower.”
Finally, a one piece Monster Set is perfect for adding some extra stats to this build. A great option is Slimecraw for the additional Critical Chance.
Either heavy attack set can be easily replaced on this build. The Draugrkin’s Grip set is a solid option which provides a great damage synergy with our DOT abilities, giving a notable boost to our overall damage. The Storm Master set is another powerful Heavy Attack set option if your build has a high Critical Chance stat, as you must deliver a Critical Strike to maintain this buff.

Race, Mundus, and Consumables
High Elf is my favorite race for this build because they have reduced damage while channeling abilities – this works with our heavy attack as a main spammable! And of course they have extra spell damage and max magicka. Other magic-based races like Breton, Dark Elf, and even Khajiit will work also.
