Gear and Item Set Info

 

Chest- Julianos/Twice Born Star/Mother's Sorrow
Legs- Julianos/TBS/MS
Belt- Julianos/TBS/MS
Feet- Julianos/TBS/MS
Gloves- Julianos/TBS/MS
Head- Grothdarr/Skoria
Shoulder- Grothdarr/Skoria
Jewlery- Soulshine
Front Bar- Soulshine swords (sharpened)
Back Bar- Soulshine inferno staff (or maelstrom, sharpened)

The body pieces are all pretty self explanatory. As far as monster sets go, you can also run Skoria, but I find that Grothdarr is more consistent and generally gives better dps. If you don't yet have access to either monster set, you can just run Vicious Death or Torugs Pact as a 2 piece placeholder. Soulshine is an incredibly useful set for Templar, because the 5 piece gives a buff to both puncturing sweeps and radiant oppression, which are our main sources of damage. All your armor enchants should be for magic, and you jewlery should be enchanted for spell damage (no need to use reduce spell cost or increase regen, youll have plenty of sustain on this build).

 

General Info

 

Food
The first big thing with this build is the food you're using. Soulshine jewlery only drops in healthy (to my knowlede), so without food youll be sitting at just under 15k health if you have all your attribute points in magicka (you should). This means that with standard blue (Magicka+Health) food, you're a bit over 20k health. I don't really like being above 20k, and templar has some issues with sustain, so I use Witchmother's Potent Brew. WPB gives health, magicka, and magicka regen. Between that regen, potions, and channeled focus, you'll rarely finish a fight  under 70% magicka, which is good because radiant oppresssion does more damage the more magicka we have when we execute.

Mundus
Use the thief mundus stone, it should put you somewhere around 60% critical chance.

Floating Skills
We do have a few floating skill slots in blazing spear, breath of life, rearming trap, and reflective light, which means you can really modify your bars depending on the fight. Templar doesn't have its own source of major sorcery, so if your healer is doing well or you're finding that blazing spear isn't a skill you're using, try slotting entropy. The alternative to entropy would be to use spell power pots, which are usually my first choice.

Rearming trap is a somewhat risky skill because it uses stamina, but the buff (12% more critical damage) is well worth it and I haven't had issues with it yet. However, if you are in a fight that requires that you block and dodge roll often, take it off of your bar in favor of a heal or damage shield.

Rotation
Anyways, after all that jazz, a typical (single target) rotation looks a bit like this:
Inner light>shooting star>bar swap>blockade of fire>light attack>rearming trap>light attack>channeled focus>bar swap>puncturing sweepsx4>bar swap>blockade of fire>bar swap>sweepsx4>bar swap>blockade>trap>sweepsx4>blockade>light attack>blockade>bar swap>sweepsx4...
