Gear and Item Set Info
This build utilizes the Naga Shaman set, along with the Blackrose Restoration Staff to proc some interesting things with Ward Ally. Major Vitality on you and the target of your shield, Minor Vitality for you, and Minor Mending for you as well. Just doing this lets your HoT abilties (Funnel Health, Mutagen, Refreshing Path) pick up any target who's health drops with one click, as well as being able to top yourself off quickly as well. Leeching Plate is also used, as a very potent self heal, as is Scourge Harvester, for more uptime of Major Vitality. Lord Warden can also be used here, as your resistances likely won't be capped in most cases. Argonian passives and infused jewelry with reduced potion cooldown enchantments are very helpful here, as it lets you keep your ultimate up at all times as a nightblade, and as an Argonian, helps you keep your magicka and stamina topped off, even with trash potions.
Keep the HoTs rolling. Always keep up funnel health, mutagen, and refreshing path when you can. This lets you "burst heal" with Ward Ally when necessary. Know your fights, know when the big hits are happening, and be ready to heal back up immediately. With the lower health pool, this is crucial, especially if there is no healer. With this setup, Ward Ally becomes Breath of Life for a Nightblade, and Major Vitality is up constantly between the Scourge Harvester, Naga Shaman, and the soul siphon ultimate.
