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.

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

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

Use a light attack before every skill

BS = Bar Swap

  • Relentless Focus, Barbed Trap, BS, Leeching Strikes, Dark Shade, Endless Hail, Poison Injection, BS, Surprise Attack, Relentless Focus (Assassin’s Scourge), Surprise Attack x5, Relentless Focus (Assassin’s Scourge)
  • Prioritize hitting Relentless Focus when it procs Assassin’s Scourge (5 Light attacks).
  • Your spammable will be Surprise Attack until the target hits 25% HP, then you switch it to Killer’s Blade in the rotation.
  • Aim for 100% uptime on Barbed Trap, this will ensure we are getting the most out of our critical strikes.
  • 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!
