Typical rotation for this build is as follows
Camo Hunter to bring your stam to 30% & Radiant Ward to drop your mag a bit.
Puncturing Sweep > Light Attack > Purifying Light > Light Attack > Barbed Trap > Light Attack > Puncturing Sweep > Light Attack > Repeat
(Light attacks should be done as weaving).
Goal is to keep mag around 20% and Stam around 30% for full buffs from armor. Oakensoul is used for buffs so pots should be used to regain mag.
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. Some skills can be swapped out for damage skills if you are soloing. Open your passives as you can. Get your guilds and undaunted lines opened as soon as you can to get your Orb and other guild skills for later on.
The Templar is a very strong and powerful DPS class. One of the major differences of a Templar, whether stamina based or magicka based is that they are strong in melee range. This is something to keep in mind of your playstyle but know it will do very high amounts of damage.
Ideal Race should be Breton or High Elf
