The ESO Templar Tank Build 2021 Blackwood update is here, and this includes group Taunt. I have listed Champion points in this post, but if you need to tank specific Trials you should adjust the red champion points after these settings.
UPDATE: Now with Champion Point 2.0 settings!

Also, check out the Dragonknight Tank Build and the Werewolf Tank build, you can use combinations of gear from all of them as you can see in my coming full tank guide video.

Race, Mundus & Consumables.

Race:
I play an Argonian because Argonias are the best… Well, we all have our preferences. Nord will be just as good and you could probably use any race in ESO for this Templar Tank Build, as it’s so easy to play.
Check out all the ESO Racial Passives here:

Mundus:
The Lady for more Physical & Spell Resistance, but you could also go for more Health or even one of the recovery stones as they would all work on this Templar Tank Build.

Food/Drink Buff:
When Tanking we need all 3 resources or if you do a stamina-only tanking build, we need at least Health and Stamina. Check out this post with the 10 Best Food/Drink buffs in the Elder Scrolls Online 2021.

The best Tri-stat food available in ESO at the moment (Blackwood) is the legendary food buff Bewitched Sugar Skulls.
This awesome buff food should be in your bag always, on every character you got, even if you are not a Templar Tank Build you will love this in cyrodiil!

Best Food Buff for Templar Tank Build 2021

Alternative food buff:
The alternative to legendary food is almost as good.
Tri-stat Purple food has been around since the beginning of ESO, every tank used this until we got Bewitched Sugar Skulls we all used either Withered Tree Inn Venison Pot Roast or Longfin Pasty With Melon Sauce.

They both give the same stat boosts and cost the same to make.
Lasting for 2 hours giving 4462 Max Health and 4105 Max Stamina and Magicka.

Potions: Essence of Health.
This Tri-stat potion is your bread and butter in a Templar Tank build.
We use Stamina the most but as I said earlier I use Magicka to regain Stamina, and now and then range taunt.
Besides giving back Health, Stamina, and Magicka it also gives you a 40% recovery boost to all the stats, which works well with the foods extra Health recovery, giving you passive healing around 750 per second.
