This build combines everything that makes the Nightblade good:
- insane burst damage
- huge variety of stuns, fears, snares, etc.
- easy kills with assassinations
This build is based on increasing your dmg, decreasing your enemies armor/spell resistance and stunning him followed by insane burst damage and a quick finisher.
(sneak -> ambush -> shadowy disguise -> surprise attack -> blinding flurry)
If your HP is lower than the enemy's use your Ultimate to stun him -> (Ambush) -> blinding flurry -> finish with impale.
In PvP I use Impale over the other morph to make sure that the enemy can't escape.
You might want to remorph this if you want to use this build in PvE.
Switch into the second actionbar for a more defensive stance.
Use shield assault to keep up with ranged-only builds and mass hysteria to keep pesky melees at a distance.
Usual Rotation: Pierce Armor -> swallow soul + heavy attacks until low HP and finish off with impale.
I highly recommend using Khajiit. Crit chance + Crit damage is something you dont want to miss while playing this build.
Dual Wield Weapons: Dagger+Dagger / Sword+Dagger; again for increased DPS and crit chance.
5x Light, 2x Medium for maximum DMG + Crit Chance.
5x Medium, 2x Light for a balanced setup.
Check out this build on the NIghtblade that works much like a warlock. ESO's whole point is to be diverse in the character and class creation, and this is just one example of the creation that can happen. Has lot of AOE, drain, and Sustain Magics. that all deal massive damage, and support the Character at the same time.
Purpose of this build is to have fun while leveling, without feeling that you are under powered.
Your first skill point should go to Class skill ability. Goal is to reach the ultimate ability as soon as possible. The Second skill point goes to weapon skill line. You want to have 2 resources to spend while fighting your way through quests completion. Magicka and Stamina. Now we turn to passives. Keep on mind that at the start you want to always have at least one skill point not spend at all time. This is crucial for adding points into morphing spells. You really want those spells boosted as soon as you can. Adding points into Crafting skills is out of the option for the start.
