Nightblades are bottom-tier DDs in PvE endgame content. They have DoTs which all of them have different timings, they have a minigame of LAs to stack a burst damage but still do bottom single target damage, where sometimes even sorcs can outdps them.

Stamina versions are unplayable because they're literally trash however you try to play it but you could still do some damage with using CW for the 10% damage buff and then a 2h spammable for additional 10% damage.
Magicka version was basically keeping afloat because of the 10% damage buff from their spammable.
Now with the new changes CW is redundant if you have 2 sorcs using greater storm atronach and the stamina NB will loose all form of buffs from 2H and CW from that.
If you want CW to NOT be used passively then make Veiled Strike have the 10% damage buff towards monsters and then both SA and CW can be used actively. Nerfing CW in PvE is not a solution to make it be used actively. I'd rather use the vampire spammable than CW if I have 2 sorcs in the group rather than using CW now.
Rollback the changes or just move the 10% damage to veiled strike and add a line that the buff only works towards monsters if you really want to balance it for PvP.
This is a thread for PvE, your comment won't be looked it has something like 'nigthblade is too op' because that's only maybe true for PvP (it isn't but that's a different issue), while it's the opposite for PvE.
