Ehem ..Destruction staff and Restoration staff are also weapons ^^I have wondered this same thing with my dragon knight. If I put all stats into stam, then I have super powerful weapon and stam morphed stats (but only a few of those switch to stam in a morph) and if i dump all into magic, then my weapon skills are gimped, but I have good class skills. But If I do both, then Im just not good enough to compete with other players apparently. So is there no way to have weapon and class skills? Do I have to pick between the two?
Was just about to post a similar thread so here goes:
I am hitting lvl 50 and have tried a few classes. It seems to me that stamina builds can work with almost any class...there seems to be a lot of overlap. The classes (and to a degree races) give them a little extra flavor.
The classes on the surface look very different, but outside of pro min/maxers in PVE (super raiders) and top PVP, the classes have enough flexibility to play almost any role. Eg, a NB tank may not be as good as a DK, but the greatest variability is likely in the player not the class differences.
I may be oversimplifying but I rather like this aspect.
Or rather I do get what the difference is but..
I want to build a Nightblade, I want him to use dual wielding (maybe 2 handed) and a bow. Haze zero interest in using a staff. This would suggest I go Stamina
But if I put all my points into Stamina- aren't my NB skills pretty much all based off Magicka?
So if I follow the suggestions, and level up with all my points into Stamina and a few in health, aren't all those fun and cool NB skills (like the executes, heals etc) going to be pretty much useless?
Conversely if I go against all advice I can find, and put my skills into magicka , -from what I've read- it seems I'm gimping my Dual wielding/bow.
And it seems if I split the points between Sta and Mag, I'm gimping both skill lines...
Basically I guess I'm asking- if I put all my points into Sta, are the NB skills (assassination etc) going to still do enough damage to be worth using? Or not.
(Purely for PVE if it matters, I'll worry about PVP after I figure out how to play the game...)
