The changes to stamblade in Elsweyr may have affected the time it takes to kill an opponent but they haven’t really affected it’s potential to secure a kill.
Of all the setups I've been experimenting with lately, this build has been the best crossover between damage and tankiness, and is solid in both departments.
This build is basic, but it is incredibly fun. You're mobile, have high damage, great healing, good sustain, and are tanky enough to stay alive and take down multiple opponents.
The Stamina Necromancer is one of the most brutal classes this game has to offer, forgoing sustained damage sources for oppressive burst windows and powerful debuffs.
This build the tools that magicka necromancer has in its arsenal to try to give you enough damage to reliably finish off targets!
