General Info

 

Older Build: http://esoacademy.com/builds/spellblade/

What this build offers is great magic based ranged and melee combat.

How you approach the combat situation, depends on the enemy type. If we can be close to the enemy, your main spammable damage ability will be Concealed Weapon. When you have to fight the enemy from distance, your main spammable will be Force Pulse (can be swapped to Swallow Soul if you need health ex. vMA).

Race: 1# Dunmer, 2# Altmer, 3# Breton, 4# Argonian.

Attributes: 64 Magicka, 0 Health, 0 Stamina.

Other Stats: Spell Damage: 2000 – 3100. Spell Critical: 60% – 70%.

Mundus Stone: Thief

Food & Potions: Max Health & Magicka Food: SOLITUDE SALMON-MILLET SOUP. Potions: Essence Of Magicka, Spell Power/Critical Potions.

Swappable abilities and items: Harness Magicka to Twisting Path (Can be morphed to Refreshing Path), Force Pulse to Swallow Soul.

Grothdarrs proc effect is based on 4 meter radius, so its effective only when you can be in 4 meter radius to the enemy/s. If you have Ilambris/Valkyn Skoria, swap it for ranged combat situations.

 

Passives Abilities: 

Racial: All Passives

Class: All Passives from: Assassination, Shadow, Siphoning,

Dual Wield: Dual Wield Expert, Ruffian, Twin Blade And Blunt

Destruction Staff: All Passives

If you’re new to the game or Nightblade class in general, I suggest you to read carefully what the different abilities do, how much they cost, whats their duration, cast time etc. so you understand how you should rotate your abilities and how they work.

    How about Medium Armor passives did you use any of them?

      If you want to, use them. In my opinion as we’re magicka build, the benefit from the passives are very small, not worth the amount of skillpoints.

      By the way, going to update the build for Morrowind patch soon.

      Hey, well basically it depends how you want to PvP. As a solo PvP, this build is too glasscannon (meaning that it does high damage but dies too easily). But with a armor change and few CP tweaks it could be used quite same way as for now. Id recommend checking the CP tweaks from another build and switching your armor to ALL Heavy and use set like Julianos for damage and maybe Seducer for more sustain. Use abilities like Shadowy Disguise and Lotus Fan.

      Now that Morrowind patch has dropped, the Champion Points has changed quite a lot so notice that too. I will be updating this build as soon as I can for Morrowind Patch.

    wondering if twice born star + mother’s sorrow couldnt be interesting for a magicka nightblade due to the already higher crit rate and damage?
