Gear and Item Set Info

 

For the gear setup, I'm going back to an old setup of mine; Blademaster.

Five piece Hunding's Rage, (Weapon damage and crit), four armor and weapon is what I use.

Five piece Night Mother's Embrace or Oblivion's Edge (Two weapon damage bonuses and stamina regen, latter gives healing upon killing an enemy plus more crit). I use jewelry and two armor pieces but the way you set it up is entirely up to you.

One piece Bloodspawn (Stamina regen, plus it looks nice)

For my weapons I have a precise maul for penetration and crit, then an infused bow with weapon damage glyph. (Both of which I will be replacing with maelstrom weapons eventually.)

 

Alternative sets: Stormfist, Swarm Mother, Molag Kena, Velidreth, Briarheart, Twice Born Star, Vicious Ophidian

 

General Info

 

This build is as simple as it gets: Kill fast, heal yourself, reflect all projectiles, heavy attack for resources, and completely destroy everything. If you've seen any power strike dk builds, you should know how effective heavy attacking can be. I suggest using tri-food and tri-pots for the best resource management, you want to be able to use your magicka skills as much as possible to keep yourself alive. Also, having the serpent with this setup will benefit you more than having penetration or weapon damage mundus.

 

Champion Point Tips

 

For your champion points, I use what is in my Toxin Master build, as the damage output from it is so good and the sustain helps a lot.

But for simplicity's sake:

  1. Mage:
  • Atronach: 30 Master-At-Arms
  • Ritual: 55 Thaumaturge, 55 Precise Strikes, 30 Piercing, 50 Mighty
  1. Warrior:
  • Steed: 30 Medium Armor Focus
  • Lady: 59 Hardy, 58 Elemental Defender, 13 Thick Skinned
  • Lord: 60 Quick Recovery
  1. Thief:
  • Tower: 30 Warlord
  • Lover: 30 Mooncalf, 100 Tenacity
  • Shadow: 60 Tumbling

    I want everyone to know that even though I post it as nord, this is just from my character and I do reccommend playing as a nord for both health and stamina bonuses with the damage reduction but it is not required.

    Would you make any adjustments for pvp?

      I think that this setup would work for pvp as is, but the cp would be slightly different.

    Is this build used for Maelstrom only or can it be used for normal PvE content and dungeons?

      I would suggest only using this skill setup for something like maelstrom but if you want normal pve, look up my Blademaster 2.0 build. It’s the same thing, only with a few adjusted skills.
