Vampire Quest - Underleveled Templar Dual Weilder

Last night I was playing ESO and met up with someone to get the vampire bite. It was very hard to get to the shrine, as I was only level 16 so it was pretty much death if anything found my while in the zone. I thought, because of the new dungeon scaling module, the enemies in the quest would scale to my level... I was wrong. So, during the quest I had to kill 10 level 38 Bloodthorn Assassins. I tried and tried again but kept dying... no matter what I tried, there was nothing I could do to kill them!! Until, I finally changed my tactics.

I'm a level 16 Templar and invested my points primarily in Puncturing Strikes, Sun Fire, Piercing Javelin, Whirlwind, and Flurry.

At this point I had morphed Puncturing strikes up to the level that it heals you, and sun fire up to Super Nova. The rest were at their base values.

Also, my attribute points were heavily vested in health and magicka. Before the battles, I ate some _Insert Name of Food Here_ that ups your health by 166 for 2 hours. Finally, for the way I managed to kill them.

What I had to do was use Puncturing strikes over and over, until I ran out of magicka. This way, I would get the healing from the spell, as well as the knockback so the enemy had less time to attack me. Often times, this spell misses and only hits 2-3 of the hits it's supposed to. When I would run out of magicka, I still had my two stamina abilities. So, I would use whirlwind -> Flurry -> whirlwind. That would deplete my stamina, but at this point the enemy was very close to death. I would then have enough magicka built back up to use Super Nova and that would finish them off. These abilities do sometimes miss, so be ready to light attack as quickly as possible to finish them off.

If you do this, you should be able to finish the quest as a Templar. Good luck, I know I found this extremely challenging and almost died a few times even using this method :)

    or u could get a frost staff use the second skill in destruction skill tree, ground aoe that always hits, and slows the enemy down.
    then u kite 1 of the 2 first npc up the stairs jump of, and repeat untill they die.
    when u kill the first 2 wait for them to respawn and do it again 5 times till u get 10

    u can do it this way at level 5 if want a low level vamp that bad xD

    Did you bring enough potions, food, etc.? People have been doing the quest at level 5 even; check youtube.

    Surprising that the person offering you a bite didn't escort you though to the shrine.

    I brought a bunch of potions, but the cool down time for them is soooo long that they were basically useless. The enemy is 22 levels above me and each hit took almost a fourth of my health, they would kill me before I could use a second potion to heal.

    They didn't escort me there because I got on before they did and said I would just meet them there. It wasn't a problem, I don't care if I die, it's not that big of a deal to repair armor. And yes, they may do it at level 5... but they might not be a Templar, or might be using ranged weapons or something. I was using melee

    My personal best was lvl 15.
    But as a nightblade, the combo of essence drain and Ambush made the whole thing trivial.

    Without stealth damage bonus I bet it's a lot harder. Nice work!

    Congrats, now you get to see how long it takes to level up a skill meant to be taken at lvl 38-40 when you are level 16.

    I can already tell lol it takes SO LONG to level it... I think the first vamp skill you unlock is still level 1 for me and I use it every chance I get
