Important Note: You can also run The Shadow or Thief. But both will deal less damage overall when in a 4 man group running a dungeon or DSA. However if purely solo campaign, then Thief is your best option. For PVP I would stick with The Lover.
This is mainly a questing for funsies build but the stats you can pull are pretty amazing for a unique build, as such you can take it into Normal and Vet non DLC dungeons. Normal Trials should be fine too, but stay away from top end game content. Not effective in PVP but can be fun in a group, just drop Camo Hunter for Cloak.
Basically the skill layout should be pretty self explanatory but to clarify. Buff with Acceleration followed by Piercing Mark then use Sap Essence for the buffs. 2 Light attacks for Kena. Throw down your Shade and Caltrops and switch bars. Merciless Resolve, Twisting Path and then throw in 4 Concealed Weapons and fire off your Spectral Bow. Don't forget to weave light attacks. You will be killing mainly on the front bar so Soul Harvest will help you build ultimate and then use Soul Tether for your ultimate. Molag Kena can be taxing on resources so you will need to use heavies when low on Magicka.
I use Capon Tomato Beef Casserole as my food choice as this buffs both Max Magicka and Max Stamina, making this food or similar food necessary for this build.
If you can't afford or craft, then grab a Cyrodilic Treat. They are cheap and easy to get and it is ok for a solo questing and non dlc dungeon character.
