it is understandable that you will not have all of these skills & passives opened as you level...these are the goals to be able to base DPS.  This build is a little different as you will have skills on your bar that you cannot use depending on which weapon setup you go with.  You can swap out bow for dual-wield for a 2h if you like but make sure you level up both lines for later on

Beginner/Level
DPS

The Templar is an extremely strong class in dps, heals, and tanking.  It is a bit more of a basic class on the surface, but can be build out to be a very advanced class when built well.  When starting out you can go 2h + Bow or dual-wield, however this build is going to be focused around a single bar build with a balanced availability 2nd bar.  Hope you enjoy

I normally don't recommend a specific race for these build guides because I feel people should be allowed to play whatever they like, but for this specialty build, if you want max DPS, we recommend Khajiit, Dark Elf, or Orc.

There are a few different builds you can do for beginner sets.  This set worked very well for leveling through dungeons until getting up to CP160 and getting higher end gear.

Recommend going Medium armor w/ Medium or heavy helm

These builds were inspired and helped to put together by Kudithi.  Thank you for helping to optimize these builds

This design is a bit different than a typical META build and was brought forward to me by a guild mate.  This is posted with his permission but we have tested it multiple times and with a single bar you can get high DPS by just focusing on one bar.  It was created for someone that may have trouble swapping bars or working through tough mechanics like attack weaving.  you can fully run this build on one bar, and bar 2 is to balance out your resources and necessities

For the additional sets...Spectral cloak daggers would be dual dagger on the back bar..or Maelstrom bow

you can also replace Zaan for Domihaus if you wish.

For dual wield on both bars, move blade-cloak to replace stampede on the back bar, and put camoflauge hunter on the front bar.

For Maelstrom bow on the back bar swap out Stampede for Endless Hail

This build is much different as this focuses on a single bar.  you can use a second weapon for the buffs, but you only use your main daggers.  To maximize this build it does mean specific gear, but you can still push high DPS with similar sets.  Ideally you want to run Dark Elf or Khajiit to max out, but again, you can try this out with non META builds.  This build was created for a friend that is physically disabled.  It is meant for those that have trouble with the mechanics of bar swapping or don't want to focus on a 2nd bar build

Ideally you want all perfected gear to max out DPS, but again, this is not required.

Flex is for parsing vs regular combat.  Vigor will be used in general, and retribution will be used against training dummies.
