General Info

 

Important Info

  • Get the Shadow Mundus Stone to increase Weapon Critical rating.
  • Max out your Khajiit skill tree so you can max out your Weapon Critical boost passive.
  • Dual Wield skill tree must be maxed out so you can add two skill points into its final passive that gives you a Weapon Crit boost for having two daggers.
  • Use tri-foods: Max Health, Max Stamina, Stamina Regen. Or you can use blue food: Max Health, Max Stamina.
  • Potion: Restore Stamina, Increase Stamina Regen, Increase Weapon Damage.

Strengths and Weaknesses

  • Strengths
    • High Damage, High Crit
    • Kill Quickly
  • Weaknesses
    • Moderate to Low Regen
    • Moderate Health

Skill Alternative Suggestions

  • Relentless Focus with Piercing Mark.
  • Shadow Image with Focused Aim.
    • You could use Heavy Bow attacks, although slightly weaker than Focused Aim, for primary ranged DPS. Shadow Image is a great utility ability to have.

Combat Strategy

  • If I'm initiating combat, it's usually from stealth. So I usually start by drinking a potion (see more info on potions above) and then open with a Heavy Attack followed by a Poison Injection to get a DoT going on my enemy.
  • I then jump into close-combat mode by first marking my enemy (Piercing Mark) to reduce their Physical resistance, then jump into close-combat with Ambush.
  • Once close, I like to keep my Mass Hysteria up on my enemy and make sure I use it every 6 seconds to keep that CC pressure on my enemy.
  • Using my Surprise Attack as my primary DPS, I wear down my opponent. As soon as their at 50% Health or lower, I use Poison Injection for an even heavier DoT and continue to add pressure until my enemy is dead.

Notes

  • The more assassination abilities you have on one bar (Dual Wield Bar), the higher your critical rating will be.
  • When fighting, use your Mass Hysteria approx. every 6 seconds to keep the CC pressure on your enemies.
  • When fighting, keep your potions flowing and active. As soon as you can drink a potion, do it. Keep doing it until you fight is over.

 

Champion Point Tips

 

Important CP Suggestion

  • 100 Points into Precise Strikes
  • 47 Points into Mighty
  • 20 Points into Piercing (or you could pour this into Mighty to make it 67)

General CP Advice

  • Add some CP into things that will help your Stamina resource management.
  • Go with your gut on what you think is best for the other areas of the Champion System.
  • If you don't have 501 CP, scale down the CP distribution proportionally to the amount of CP you have.
