Templar

Arcanist + Oathkeeper

This is a theory build. A fire focus battle mage, using an array of abilities and spells to deal heavy damage while being in the thick of the fight. This build has some strong survivability, and very strong skills to compliment it, you want to focus on dishing out as much damage as possible while being the center of attention. Many of the devotions chosen rely on the skills they are paired with, so be sure to activate your skills as many times as possible.

Anything fire damage related will greatly help this build. There are many skills in this build, and while we have an array of abilities to chose from, we can’t focus on many of them without sacrificing others. Righteous Fervor is an example of this. We take this skill in part because of what it offers, but mostly because we need to in order to assign a devotion ability to it. The devotion in question, has a 15% chance with every attack to reduce the enemy resistance to fire damage, allowing us to deal even more damage with the same abilities we have. There is a lot of resource management to do with this build, and also managing our skills to ensure we are using as many skills as possible. This build is for those who prefer a demanding build with altering skills and abilities on top of resource management. If you can master that, this build is going to be a workhorse and get you through just about any content available.

This can be your starting ability, or your secondary, the starting choice does not make a big difference. There are many skills in the class that we take, but don’t necessarily bring them to the max. Elemental Exchange is a strong elemental damage increase to all of our attacks. Callidor’s Tempest is a strong AoE ability with a strong fire damage increase. Lastly, Reckless Power is another straight Fire damage increase across the board, just like Elemental Exchange. some passive abilities do help our overall performance, but are not crucial to the point of needing to max them out in this build.

This can be your starting ability, or your secondary, the starting choice does not make a big difference. Focus on unlocking Vire’s Might as this is a main skill for this build. Righteous Fervor is only taken to assign one of our devotion points later on, and is a nice change to our default attacks. Presence of Virtue is a good skill to have in order to help our survivability and regeneration. Finally, to help with our overall damage, we also use Guardian of Empyrion, these are invulnerable “pets” that help us with overall damage, in this build, we will be able to have 2 of them at any given time.
