General Info

 

From my experience, nightblades do not need dubious camoran unless they completely take away all of their stamina bonuses, leaving less than 27k and do not know how to do a proper rotation that keeps their stamina up without heavy attacking several times.

Static rotation: (Probably the easiest thing you'll ever see that's better to use over the dynamic spammable rotation everyone else does) LA = Light attack weave, HA = Heavy attack weave

  • Start by buffing using Leeching strikes for sustain and Relentless focus for berserk, lay out rearming trap, LA > Endless Hail > LA > Caltrops > LA > Poison Injection > LA > Incapacitating Strike > LA > Potion/swap > LA > Surprise Attack > LA > Rending Slashes > LA > Relentless Focus Proc > HA > Deadly Cloak > HA > Reapply Relentless/Proc > swap
