Gear and Item Set Info

 

Hunding's Rage x5, Night Mother's Embrace x5, Molag Kena x1
Hunding's Rage for max weapon damage and weapon critical, Night Mother's Embrace and Molag Kena for extra weapon damage and stamina regen.
Alternatives can be Brairheart and Oblivion's Edge.

Full stamina enchants on divines armor and healthy/robust for jewelry. It's entirely up to you to what you put in, I just prefer a bit more health.
As for food I reccommend Tripe Trifle Pocket for health and stamina regen.

I currently use Hunding's rage, Twice Fanged Snake, and Spawn of Mephala with an infused dagger and precise sword.

 

General Info

 

The point of this build is to do the maximum amount of damage output in the shortest time possible. Which can be good for an assassin type character. Plus the stealth bonuses from the one set benefit thieves as well, as sneaking can be a pain unless you keep shadow cloak up all the time. For the best damage output I recommend using the warrior stone.

You can also use a nord or imperial for this setup

 

Champion Point Tips

 

Warrior: 31 ironhide, 30 spell shield, 40 Medium Armor Focus, 43 Hardy, 43 Ele Defender, 43 Thick-skinned

Mage: 49 Mighty, 21 Piercing, 66 Thaumaturge, 66 Precise Strikes, 28 Master-At-Arms

Thief: 30 Mooncalf, 100 Tenacity, 25 Warlord, 75 Tumbling

 

This setup is the same as my other builds and works for pretty much any stamina dps class.

    I am curious how you spent your Atribute Points exactly as i cant figure out how to get the totals you suggest in this guide for each one?

      The rest is all up to Undaunted, maximum resource enchantments, and jewelry

    Instead of bow would you be able to use dual wield as a weapon choice alongside 2H? Or is bow necessary for some reason e.g. passive skill? Thanks!!!

      My main reason for having bow is dots and aoe. Though you could just as easily use rending slashes or something as a dot and caltrops.

    I like your build and great video. I am struggling with dps rotation and staying alive in big fights. How does leeching strikes give you enough health? Doesn’t seem to do it for me. Maybe I need to do more light attacks.

    Also how do you have items in containers on all your sets. I have seen it before on deltia’s and haven’t figured out what addon allows that. Thx

      I used the public test server to make this video since I do not have a complete stamina nightblade on the live server. Also, a bit of advice, don’t use Deltia to make builds. His stuff is alright for lower levels but in the long run you’re losing a lot of potential. And leeching strikes heals you a bit over time for every light attack you use, so it’s best to light attack in between skills, which also increases your sustain and dps.

        Yeah I have gotten away from looking at deltia’s builds. Looking more at alcast, but also figuring out what works for me. Allows me to have more of a baseline help more then anything. Trying out Reapers Mark in place of leeching strikes right now.

        Contemplating making my stamblade into mag blade at some point in the near future.

          Why a magblade? If the skills are used properly with potions you should never run out of stamina. Leeching strikes is the best sustain skill in the game because you get stamina back for light attacking and even more from heavy attacking, reapplying the skill before it runs out gives you 6k stamina. Which it should be doing each rotation. On top of that it also heals you
