Introduction

Welcome to Dottzgaming.com’s Stamina Nightblade Build PvE, Y’ffre’s Blade, for the Elder Scrolls Online! This build is intended for Trials, Dungeons and general PvE content.

Once you have taken a look at the leveling guide on this website and have finally hit CP 160, you should be looking into acquiring gear for an ‘end-game’ setup. Currently the highest parsing stamina class, stamina nightblade is fantastic in single target and AOE damage and has great sustain with the Leeching Strikes skill, capable of pulling off an entirely light attack rotation to keep gameplay fun and active. It can be a bit of a hurdle at first but with practice, personal adjustments, and hard work, stamina nightblade is incredibly powerful and rewarding in PvE once mastered.

Setup

Gear

Getting Started – Beginner Gear

Stamina Nightblade PvE Build – Beginner
Gear Slot Set Weight Trait Enchant Acquisition
Head Selene Medium Divines Stamina Vet Selene’s Web
Shoulders Selene Medium Divines Stamina Undaunted Chest
Gloves Hunding’s Rage Medium Divines Stamina Crafted
Legs Spriggan’s Thorns Medium Divines Stamina Bangkorai or Guild Trader
Chest Hunding’s Rage Heavy Divines Stamina Crafted
Belt Hunding’s Rage Medium Divines Stamina Crafted
Boots Spriggan’s Thorns Medium Divines Stamina Bangkorai or Guild Trader
Necklace Spriggan’s Thorns Jewelry Robust Weapon Damage Bangkorai or Guild Trader
Ring Spriggan’s Thorns Jewelry Robust Weapon Damage Bangkorai or Guild Trader
Ring Spriggan’s Thorns Jewelry Robust Weapon Damage Bangkorai or Guild Trader
Weapon 1 Hunding’s Rage Axe Nirnhoned Poison Crafted
Off-Hand 1 Hunding’s Rage Dagger Sharpened Absorb Stamina Crafted
Weapon 2 Hunding’s Rage Bow Infused Weapon & Spell Damage Crafted

NOTE: Do not mistake ‘beginner’ as such however. This is meant to be the initial/easiest to acquire setup that any stamina user can get in order to farm their end game setup. You have just hit Champion Point 160 and need gear to be able to complete Normal and Veteran content to get the better stuff – this configuration is the best way to do so while also not getting sets that are useless in the long run. Spriggan’s is a good set in both PvE and PvP content and Hunding’s Rage is the most outstanding crafted stamina setup that you cannot go wrong with. It does require 6 traits to craft but if you were researching traits while leveling this can be done by yourself OR you can contact a crafter on any platform from our Discord to help you out!

Champion Points

Champion points were updated in the recent Flames of Ambition patch. The list below showcases the order in which the points should be acquired, the number of points you need to place into that perk and whether or not it needs to be slotted in the new CP bar. The Warfare CP perks increase your damage and mitigation and are the most important, the Fitness tree has some miscellaneous sustain and defensive perks and the Craft tree has crafting and non-combat bonuses. The Craft CP points are entirely customizable to however you want, or you can follow the list below. You can also view the point allocation in a CP calculator by clicking the following links:

Other Important Info

Buff Food

  • Artaeum Takeaway Broth (Increase Max Health, Health Recovery, Max Stamina & Stamina Recovery) is the gold food for stamina, added with Summerset. The recipe can only be fished from the waters in Artaeum and is bound. You can buy the food from Guild Traders. This is the recommended food for the build.
  • Dubious Cameron Throne (Increase Max Health, Stamina and Stamina Recovery) is a cheaper alternative of Artaeum Takeaway Broth if you cant afford it.
  • Braised Rabbit with Spring Vegetables (Increase Health and Stamina) is a cheap alternative food if you feel you dont need the sustain from Artaeum Takeaway Broth.

Mundus

Thief – Increases Critical Chance

Race

  • Khajiit
  • Orc
  • Dark Elf

Potions/Poisons

  • Essence of Weapon Power (Weapon Critical, Weapon Damage, and Stamina Restoration)
    • Blessed Thistle, Dragonthorn & Wormwood
  • Damage Health Poison IX (Ravage Health and Gradual Ravage Health)
    • (Fleshfly larvae, Nightshade and Emetic Russula)

Passives

Racial (all), Class (all), Dual Wield (All), Bow (All), Medium Armor (All), Heavy Armor (All), Alchemy (Medicinal Use), Undaunted (All), Fighter’s Guild (All)

Resource Management & Rotation

  • Relentless Focus, Barbed Trap, BS Leeching Strikes, Dark Shade, Deadly Cloak, Soul Splitting Trap, BS Rending Slashes, Spammable, Relentless Focus, Spammable x4, Relentless Focus
  • Prioritize hitting Relentless Focus when it procs (5 Light attacks), this will do more damage than any single DoT tic.
  • Your spammable will be Surprise Attack until the target hits about 75% HP, then you should use Shrouded Dagger
  • Aim for 100% uptime on Barbed Trap, this will ensure we are getting the most out of our critical strikes.
  • Because we are using the BRP DW we need to make sure we have a high uptime on Deadly Cloak.
  • Look to cast your ultimate on cooldown during each boss fight, unless you should be saving your ult, cast it!
  • Activate your potions on cooldown, this will ensure you have zero sustain issues, and you will have high uptimes on your buffs!

Tips & Misc.

A thank you to the poor Argonian fellow in the guild house :3
