    You seem to have no weapon damage buff. You either need to run Rally from the 2h line, hidden blade from the dw skill line, or chug weapon damage potions. The 20% weapon damage is extremely beneficial in all aspects of the game and it is something you are currently lacking.

    Ah, okay. I think I know how I completely missed the difference between DPS and weapons damage - I blame too much WoW in my early teen years. I felt like I had too many buffs (buttons X, Y, and B...) and then one attack for single target and one for AoE. Felt kinda lacking and this is definitely something I'll mess around with and find a comfortable way to implement. Thank you.

    I am not sure but after about 60% crit others have said it is better to swap mundus over to the inc. crit damage one, whatever it is called.

    I'm still hunting for the move Moglijuana is referring to, but I think the stone you're talking about is the Shadow.

    I played WoW for 8 years lol. ESO is much better =). I'd also use surprise attack (nightblade ability) over rapid strikes as it is one of the best single target attacks in the game. Also, try practicing sneaking in a light attack in between every ability to up your dps. Most loadouts usually use 1 bar for dps and 1 bar for buffs/aoes.

    Again, this game is meant to be played however you want, so find stuff that you are comfortable with. However, there are certain build set ups that will always out DPS other builds simply because they are well thought out rather than just an assortment of skills that are "cool".

    Here is a link to a pretty good end game NB dps build.

    I absolutely love stealthy rogue-like classes, but was disappointed when Bows weren't as good/viable as they were in Skyrim. For the Blade and Blunt passive, what type of weapon is best? I've been running daggers but previously used swords.

    I like dual swords to maximize weapon damage (with a buff either from pots,rally, hidden blade or another group member). If you want to use daggers, the best in the game are the Maelstrom ones. Without those I just prefer the higher damage over the crit. Once you hover around 55% crit its better to just focus on damage anyways.

    I use 2h and bow and I focus on burst damage(single target). There are plenty of burst builds available online via youtube. Save up gold or farm materials yourself, but v16 gold gear makes a huge difference plus you need to get gold enchants.

    I always run 5 hundings on all my stamina builds and you can use what ever set you have to finish up the build

    You already have high critical rating, so go for shadow mundus(boost your critical damage) instead of theif.

    You also need 25k-30k minimum stamina to survive and burst damage.( your ability damage scales of max stamina.)

    For your health use bi-state / tri-state food to get it.(Even your magicka is important as well.)

    Lastly, your weapon damage should be 2300--2800 unbuffed.
    Use increase weapon damage on rings anand neck and buy/get Agility rings from vendor/dungeons.

    I recommend switching from dw to 2h and use rally, it is a great heal and buff. You also should try getting vigor as it is a great stamina heal. For gear you should do something like 5 hundings and then 3 nights silence for sustain or 3 ashen grip for a bit more health and damage. Optimal gear would be 5 hundings, 1 Kena 1, blood spawn, maelstrom 2h and bow, agility jewellery with 2 weapon damage and have stam regen enchants. Use the serpent mundus for even more stamina regen. You will probably have enough regen (2k+) now as you are bosmer you get 21% extra stam regen so you can go with bi stat food instead of drinks. With 5 piece hundings 3 piece nights silence and lekis jewellery with a few damage enchants you should have 30k+ stamina (with food and around 20k health), 2000+ stam recovery and 2500+ weapon damage. I also recommend using impenetrable trait for your gear for pvp.

    @bantycakes check out this thread from Gilliam. He's put more work into maximizing stamina nightblade DPS than anyone else (at best maybe someone's matched his efforts). He's already written out everything you should need and has been responsive to most all inquiries. Good luck.

    2hand imo is better than do because of heal/buff with rally and morphing reverse slash to executioner turns every skill on the 2h bar to be an execute (300% increase in damage to below 50% health enemy) i tried dw/bow and had to chug weap dmg drinks all the time and my end stats were not as impressive. I run ambush, surprise attack, rally, executioner and evasion on that bar. The execute bonus on 2h bar essentially is like adding weapon damage as well as marking the target with piercing mark debuff's the target making u hit harder. Good luck. My stamblade is built around using a bow but my 2h bar is for close quarter battles. I run full marksman set with 3pc leki, all vet16 and purple with gold glyphs. All 7pc medium. My weapon damage in cyrodill with rally is roughly 3700. So after I focus aim/heavy attack, a lot of times my target is near or below 50% so ambush, surprise attack and executioner all become executes. This build came to life because of the marksmans set which 5pc gives me added weapon damage to bow abilities. I also have 3pc agility jewelry with all 3 healthy because it's cheaper and I just put all attributes into stamina to give me 36000 stam and 24000 health to survive. I run vigor on my bow bar with cloak, mark, focused aim and poison injection. It's a lot fun and with a group, you can really be a huge help with your executes and marks. Good luck

    Sorry this reply took forever.

    @psychotic13 @Americanfunguy Necklace is a purple V15 Diamond Necklace of Reduce Feat cost with Robust. Rings are both blue V16 Ring of Bahraha's Curse with Stam recovery and Robust.

    I'm running V16 food now which helps somewhat. My attribute points are all in Stamina now and with food my stats are 19.7k Health and 25k Stam, having made no gear changes and simply redoing my attribute points and adding food.

    @Van_0S I'm looking into getting the Agility jewelry pieces ASAP while also gathering mats for my V16 set. I've started using purple V16 tri-stat food and did switch Mundus stones so my Crit rating is 73.2% unbuffed and weapon damage remains unchanged at 1993.

    @Azor_Ahaii @budrow I might have to look into switching to 2H. Not crazy about it but if it works better, I'll definitely give it a shot.

    @Daveheart Thanks for the link, I'll be reading it as soon as I've posted this reply! :)

    @The_Outsider Thanks, finally found it. :)

    @Acsvf No offense taken! I'm just trying to get this Stamblade thing figured out. Thought I knew what I was doing, turns out I don't lol.
