General Info

 

The playstyle is like playing a Dragonknight. Max Stamina and Max Health or Stamina and Health recovery drinks. Great build for applying pressure to targets, bow bar typically for open world AvA. Strong for singling out other Nightblades, hence the piercing mark. Engine Guardian to sustain. You can combine Caltrops and Siphoning Attacks if you have issues sustaining. This build works for both PvE and PvP but can switch skills depending on your playstyle.

 

Champion Point Tips

 

If you’re squishy, consider investing in the champion point skills that improve healing received and the potency of healing you cast. Try to invest as many points as you can into increasing your Physical Damage and Stamina recovery, as a Nightblade and a Bosmer, that will be around 36% extra stamina recovery, not including The Serpent boon buffed with Divines. You can also invest into reducing Stamina cost of abilities which helps running Caltrops. You may also want to reduce the cost of dodge rolling, if you dont want to dodge roll, you can try swapping a skill for Shuffle (Morph of Evasion) or use Double Take for dodge chance and movement speed. However the bow passive, Hasty Retreat, already provides a movement speed buff when you dodge roll.
