Okay so I've played about 100 hours of ESO so far as a Stamina Nightblade and I'm just not at all satisfied with his survivability and flexibility as a solo PVE player.
Here's my current build:
Bar One: Dual Wield (Mob Killer/Stunnable Boss)
Rapid Strikes: Crazy High Dps/Finisher
Steel Tornado: AOE
Dark Cloak: Defensive/Stealth
Swallow Soul: Healing/Magicka filler/ranged damage
Ult: Soul Tether (massive damage and heal)
Bar Two: Bow (UnStunnable Bosses/Soloing public dungeons)
Reapers Mark: Debuffer (great heal)
Mass Hysteria: Keep targets off me
Lethal Arrow: great dps and main weave
Poison Injection: dot and finisher
Soul Swallow: heal and magicka/damager/finisher
Ult: Soul Tether
On one handed he does amazing damage from stealth; when surprise attack crits from stealth I can one shot some mobs. He rarely runs out of stamina which is great but if enemies are invulnerable to stun I'm a dead man.
What I really want is to have a magicka build but the moment I do that I lose my stealth attack bonus?!!! Why the hell is that? Also once I start using magicka my free ability Swallow soul will go up and sap essence will be a viable AOE damager but I love using a bow (especially for ganking in pvp) and the bow will become *** weak.
Am I stuck using the destruction staff and restoration staff?? And if so will I get the same Dps? I've played with the resto and loved the healing ward but lost so much Dps!
I'm just so frustrated and Stuck between how I want to play and how I'm forced to play. I've also just become a Vampire after being a werewolf for a while because reasons.
Anyway any help would be appreciated.. I've watched about 20 build videos and whilst some sound great they aren't working for me (maybe potions and the fact they are vr14 is making the difference for them).
In conclusion I'd Like:
-Stealth gameplay (damage bonus from stealth attacks)
-Survivability (will be okay to use resto will need help with the bar)
-To play as a Vamp
-Highest Poss Dps
-Keep the bow (unless destruc staff has a good damage weavable ability)
-Something I can take to solo pvp as well
-to use as least weapon skills as possible for nightblade skill slot buffs
I'm hoping to get some great feedback on here so I can respec one Last time for a while (I've spent over 75,000k respeccing this week and I really can't afford to do it anymore) and craft either a nice set of light or medium armour.
Halp! Thanks for reading.
