I’m playing a Templar DPS build. Its fine in pve, I’m at level 23 at the moment, specializing in aedric and dawn. Skills are 6 magic, 12 health, and 2 stamina I think. Wearing 2 light armor, the rest heavy. My problem is that I’m getting wrecked in PVP in Wabbajack. I did my first entry into the alliance wars today and got massacred all the time. What am I doing wrong for pvp in alliance wars? Is it just that high level players are dominating me? Maybe I’m too low of a level. Any thoughts on how to survive better, other than wait until I level higher?


I think you should just wait until you level into the VR ranks. I found that I rely on my Puncturing Strike a lot for DPS and from how things are right now you should probably focus on a more magika based build if you want to do more DPS. You can try lurking the Tamriel forums and steal some build idea from others.


Thanks for your thoughts. I’m hoping that they will open a non-vet campaign for newbies to join.

What role has stamina played in your build? It seems that weapon damage is affected by it. I use stampede and reverse slice in my main bar. Maybe I should add a bit if stamina down the road?
