So zos has finally done it. Magblade which was already barely limping in pvp is finally dead. Pft 30% damage on bow as heal if you're in 7m radius. Pft dark cloak heals 4.5% of your max health over 8 secs. For real Zos? You're nerfing an already stupidly weak hot for which nightblades have to drop invisibility?????? No heals, no buffs and a bunch of nerfs which makes no cloak pvp(or even cloak spamming) difficult. Now if I just go and gank an afk person and run away then you nerf us even more? What do you want us to do? You've already brought us to the point where we can't even walk near a keep without cloaking and boi let's not talk about how sorcs can shield stack and then hide behind pets. Dks don't reflect but 50% damage migitation + fire orbs projectile for 6 seconds. Sorcs get damage boost. Dks get a bunch of damage buffs and survavility from melee and ranged characters. Templars got damage buffs and their spear now stuns longer. And you take our minor berserk and add a 30% heal on bow proc? Are you trying to make a joke? Why would a magblade play in 7m range? I see your assassin thing going on but what after I shoot my bow? Someone roots us and does 3 light attack and we die. I was expecting some buffs to magblade cos it's one of the worst class in 1v1 and the absolute worst in outnumbered unless they cloak spam and run away(which often fails aswell). I was kind of excited when you said "changes to classes to make it more in line with other characters"? What balance? Nb tanks are trash, nightblade healers are thrasher than trash. At one point I changed my magblade to a healer and got kicked from a pug trial groups cos I was nightblade. Malevolent offering is a heal? I mean yeah but boo hoo nobody wants a healer that ends up dying to a mob attack in trials just cos he tried to heal someone. Nightblades were all about dps but now you're trying to bring it in line with other classes in terms of dps. So tell me if sorcs and dks do the same dps then why would someone play a nightblade? Dks can do dps but they excel at tanking. Templars can do dps as high as nightblades lol and they can heal the entire groups while they're playing as dds. Either change this or give us a class exchange token cos my magblade is my first ever character and I don't want to stop playing my character just cos pve players complain how magblades are doing so much dps and then you nerf them in a way that effects them less in pve and more in pvp where they're absolutely trash. Good day!

    Apparently so. I got to maybe the fourth sentence until I realized it was a ranty wall of text.
    I play ESO on XBOX NA
    My gameplay focus is creativity - through storytelling, character design, and character development (aka, I'm a dedicated role player)
    Current characters realized include:
    - Xandar (Altmer, magicka sorcerer, main crafter), a master of magic and a hopeless romantic; specializes in electric shock therapy and melodrama.
    - Vasha (Khajiit, magicka nightblade), a master thief and cunning murderer; specializes in trolling guards and general mayhem.
    - Alexander (Imperial, stamina templar, main tank), an artificer, futurist, and idealist; specializes structural integrity and gears. Mostly just gears.
    - Leoda (Bosmer, stamina warden, werewolf), a cheeky huntress dedicated to the Queen; specializes in putting arrows in your face.
    - Llaus (Dunmer, magicka dragonknight, vampire), a grim outcast with a temper; specializes in death by conflagration or exsanguination.
    - Shantava* (Redguard, stamina sorcerer), a pirate and treasure hunter; specializes in whirling blades, camel wrangling, and your money.
    - Kitara* (Breton, magicka warden, main healer), an elementalist and tree hugger; specializes in herbal remedies, tea, and pleasant bedside manner.

    It isn't an appealing topic and I was almost at the point of losing it cos I've played my magblade for a while and it really hurt watching how zos keeps nerfing an already underperforming class and doesn't do much about op classes like stamblade.

    My bad if you had trouble understanding what I said.

    I'm mostly wondering why it heals now even though it's not a siphon ability even though that's the skill line that's more about like. getting heals/doing heals. Kinda seems like a mess to me.

    That's zos just being lazy. They don't even know why stamblades are overperforming so they just nerf whatever class skill/passive they feel like hoping it effects stamblades as well. But it only hurts magblade lol

    I did buy elsweyr and that's my thing. I do love the nb class but I love my character more. And I don't want to stop maining it. If zos just gives out class change tokens then a lot of the problems would be solved.

    They can nerf any class and I wouldn't care but the condition in while they've left magblade is really disheartening. My mate who used to play a magdk just saw how great nb is and he made a magblade but struggles in all of the snares and roots in no cp cyro. A nightblade outside cloak is basically free ap(or in cloak cos of the number of counters cloak has). That's how weak the class is. With the lack of hots/mobility any good class can become trash and any trash class can become good.

    i did read your OP though...all these constant changes are pretty challenging to keep up with...builds only last six months or so...

    it's tough committing to a build and playstyle - then, seeing it trashed or perverted in the name of "balance"...

    I have 2 option. 1 my magblade becomes a crafter and never play it again, is good I already have the skillpoints needed on him.... and create a sorc or something to main, or option 2 uninstall the game because I can not adapt to this, sorry. I suck even in pve as magblade and they nerfed it more. Very nice.

    I don't believe the advantage of a Night Blade is suppose to be that they can do more dps than other classes. It's their ability to stealth and sneak around.

    Seriously why do they keep nerfing magblade when they're already weak? I love my magblade so I won't stop playing him, but there's not really any reason to play him over my sorc or wardens anymore. They keep taking all the stuff that makes them good and/or fun to play then lighting it on fire. Also did they forget the slow projectile crap they did to the bow proc? That makes having a heal on it when in close range kinda dumb imo. In pvp people will just dodge it, and in pve it won't really be needed. Hopefully the proposed changes will be tweaked because these are just plain rude.
