Gear and Item Set Info
This is the set-up that works best for me, of course you can use other sets if you find those more appropriate for the build. I'm just giving an example, but other options are surely viable.
5x Kagrenac's Hope or 5x Spinner's Garment (gear) can go with 5 Lich as well.
2x Iceheart or 2x Infernal Guardian
3x Willpower or 4x Lich (jewelry + staves)
Ulti: Eye of the Storm -> Incapacitating Strike // Soul Assault -> Soul Tether or Devouring Swarm.
Siphoning Attacks can be replaced by Prolonged Suffering (Agony).
This is purely a PvP build designed for small-scale PvP. I wanted to make a non-bombing magicka nightblade PvP build, since you still see those a lot and people get tired from them.
I play as a Vampire for the extra 10% Magicka/Stamina recovery. This build has nice damage, sustain and if you get used to it, the survivability isn't too bad either. I use 5 pieces Light Armor, just because everyone is running Heavy Armor now and are tanky AF, because: "Hey tankiness is the way to go!!" #ZOSlogics.
So I wanted to show you that a Light Armor build still works fine, and the best of it: oh hell yes, you can annoy people a lot, even those heavy armor wanna-be tanks. :)
Champion Point Tips
Now, you have a few options here, it's not like there is 1 right way on how to divide your champion points. This is my set-up, feel free to change whatever you like better.
The Apprentice: 73 Elemental Expert / 87 Spell Erosion / 27 Blessed
The Shadow: 20 Tumbling
The Lover: 67 Arcanist
The Tower: 100 Magician
The Lady: 87 Elemental Defender / 90 Hardy
The Lord: 10 Quick Recovery
--> Here you can, for example, put some points into Shadow Ward/Bastion, whatever you prefer.

Also, I’d like to give a shout-out to the amazing people: @Pretzl, @yvesfouquet4, @Cordee, @GeorgeWall, @SleepyRip and many others who have helped me establish this build.
Was considering your build with 5 impen rattlecage 5 spinners 2 kena, spinners swords jewelry, and 2 light kena. Do you think that could work?
Yes, that should certainly work, though I would advise to use 1 light kena and 1 medium to benefit more from the Undaunted Mettle passive. But yes it should certainly work.
Good luck! 🙂
Could I get away doing this on a high elf nightblade with 2 sets of lights while collecting my monster set armour
Yes, you can, for example, use 2 pieces Torug’s Pact or Magnus to replace the monster set.
