Gear and Item Set Info
Monster Set: Troll King, helps greatly with survivability and replaces vigor on this build
Armor Set: Hunding's Rage , Solid Stamina Set which boosts our crit chance
On armor go with 5x impenetratable and 2x well fitted
Jewelery (Infused, 3x weapon damage glyph) and 2h Maul (Precise, foulness glyph): Automaton Set, more crit chance and insane more physical damage
Bow (infused, weapon damage glyph): Cyrodiil's Crest or any other set with 2 piece stamina regen, if your a wood elf you can go with a master's bow
Mundus: The Shadow
Food: Orzorga's Bear Hunch or triple regen if you cannot afford it
Potions: Tri Stat, Cloak Pots for daring escapes and some decloak pots when evil hunter fails
On your 2h bar you can try dawnbreker which gets the automaton bonus however i find the heal debuff and buff to my own damage by incap strike and its cheap ulti cost more usefull.
Your strength on this build is hit and run manoevers but you can dish out enough dps to 1v1 even most tanky builds, just keep going and they will eventually fall. Don't forget to weave light attacks in and proc relentless focus. With all buffs going as Khajiit you get around 66% crit chance with a 2.13 crit damage multiplier @roughly 5k weapon damage.
Champion Point Tips
Pretty standard for stamina nightblade just make sure you get around +20% critical damage
Is shuffle even viable anymore for this kind of build? It doesn’t provided dodge chance anymore (this site hasn’t been updated). I would rather take an execute skill (Reverse Slice/Executioner or Killer’s Blade) and put it on Bar 1 and move Relentless Focus to Bar 2.
What’s your sustain like with this build?
Shuffle gives snare immunity which is very needed to survive in many situations. I have tried efficient purge too but shuffle gave me better results. The execute isnt really needed as everything with low hp will also die from a surprise attack.
Concerning sustain you will have around 1800 stam recovery on bow bar (with leeching strikes thats 2200+). HP recovery is at 600 (near 2k with troll king procced) and magicka recovery is around 1300
I have to put all atribute points into Stamina? or half stamina/health? I’m newbie.
@Boonfoxx Shuffle give snare immunity and most nightblades now use the bow proc on relentless in place of an execute.
