Build description

Dual Wield Bar | Main Damage Bar

Steel Tornado (morph of Whirlwind | Dual Wield skill line) – The tried and true AoE damage skill in the game, boasting immense range, power, and even execute potential. Use this over your single target spammable when you’re fighting more than 3 enemies in a grouped up area. Always try to position yourself in the center of the pull to maximize the number of targets hit.
Rending Slashes (morph of Twin Slashes | Dual Wield skill line) – An extremely potent single target DoT available from Dual Wield. This ability can be applied to an infinite amount of targets, so try and hit each enemy with this when you’re fighting groups the size of 3 and under. It also has immense up front damage and a snare, helping you kite enemies when you need to back off to heal. Use this over Steel Tornado in single target or low density boss fights.
Relentless Focus (morph of Grim Focus | Assassination skill line) – A potent tool to help Stamina Nightblades gain Minor Berserk and Endurance for 20 seconds, granting them 8% damage boost and 10% Stamina Regeneration. After 5 Light or Heavy attacks it can be reactivated for a high damaging shot, as many times as you can get 5 LA/HA’s off in the 20 seconds. Expect to only get 2-3 shots off per cast of Relentless due to the complexity of our rotation.
Surprise Attack (morph of Veiled Strike | Shadow skill line) – The Stamina Nightblade’s spammable which packs a punch. Offering great damage that’s easy to weave, it also applies Major Fracture to enemies to make them take more Physical, Poison, and Disease damage. This is perfect for solo players, but in min/maxed end game situations we’ll use something else
Rapid Strikes (morph of Flurry | Dual Wield skill line) – A wonderful spammable that acts as a damage over time function, making it relatively easy to weave. This skill will out perform Surprise Attack in situations where Major Fracture is already applied to the target, which is most of the time in group play. If you need healing instead of min/maxed DPS, try the other morph, Bloodthirst.
Killer’s Blade (morph of Assassin’s Blade | Assassination skill line) – Once a target hits 25% Health, this will replace our spammable. Boasting much higher damage and less of a cost, this means 25-0% is easier to manage for us than the first 75%. Don’t forget to keep up your DoTs like Poison Injection, Endless Hail, Trap Beast, and Rending Slashes though!
Deadly Cloak (morph of Blade Cloak | Dual Wield skill line) – Now boasting a staggering 25% AoE damage reduction, this skill helps Stamina builds stay in the fight in harsh combat. Many skills in dungeons and trials have also been updated to be considered AoE damage, giving us much needed tankiness.
Flex Option; Resolving Vigor (morph of Vigor | Alliance War Assault skill line) – A massive AoE heal over time accessible to anyone who’s ventured into Cyrodiil for a while. The healing potential this skill enables is massive, as well as giving some added group utility.
Ultimate Option 1 (Classic) Flawless or Smiting Dawnbreaker (morph of Dawnbreaker | Fighter’s Guild skill line) – A potent AoE Ultimate that can be casted in a cone in front of you, dealing high burst and a decent DoT that lasts 5 seconds. Flawless offers more passive damage, while Smiting offers more Ultimate damage and a stun to targets hit. This will also do bonus damage to Undead, Daedra, and Werewolves.
Ultimate Option 2 (Ultimate Generator) Soul Harvest (morph of Death Stroke | Assassination skill line) – Used primary as a passive slot for 2% Critical Strike Chance and 10 Ultimate whenever we get a killing blow. It can also be used once a target gets low health instead of saving larger chunks of Ultimate, giving us a nice damage boost (20% for 6 seconds).
Ultimate Option 3 (Survivability) Rend (morph of Lacerate | Dual Wield skill line) – A simple yet effective DoT attack that has a minor cleave to it. The power of this skill comes from the immense healing it provides; healing for 50% of the damage you inflict per tick. This means in AoE or Cleave fights, the more targets you hit; the harder it will be for you to die.
Bow Bar | Support Damage & Buffs

Rearming Trap (morph of Trap Beast | Fighter’s Guild skill line) – A universal powerhouse to any Stamina (and even some Magicka) builds. Enabling great damage via Minor Force for 12 seconds, as well as a hefty single target DoT to the enemy it procs on. It can also root minor enemies in place for a bit, and will deal massive bonus damage to Undead, Deadra, and Werewolves.
Poison Injection (morph of Poison Arrow | Bow skill line) – A truly superb DoT ability that also acts as an execute on targets at or below 50% Health. It can be casted from a range as well, helping keep up pressure when you need to retreat from the battle for a moment. The damage the DoT deals will also be amplified by the Hawk Eye passive, even after swapping off the bow bar. Always make sure to actively light attack on this bar!
Endless Hail (morph of Volley | Bow skill line) – Another classic DoT ability, but this one functions as an AoE as well. Paired with a Maelstrom Bow, this skill instantly becomes our most important form of damage, even after swapping to our Dual Wield bar. Place this where most of the enemies you will be fighting are, or where a boss is. Keep in mind that Hawk Eye will also boost this even after swapping, so always weave before and after applying it!
Razor Caltrops (morph of Caltrops | Alliance War Assault skill line) – Updated in Morrowind to be a universally accessible skill (there is no cap on how many players can use this), Razor Caltrops adds immense AoE damage potential to every Stamina build around. The duration allows it to line up perfectly with our other back barred DoTs. The cost can be excessive though, so make sure you have a robust enough Stamina pool before going to your back bar.
Flex option; If you’re not comfortable with Caltrop’s insanely high cost, or having the trudge through Cyrodiil to get it; treat this slot as a flex spot. Put anything you’d like here, such as Blur (Assassination skill like) or Vigor (Alliance War Assault skill line).
Leeching Strikes (morph of Siphoning Strikes | Siphoning skill line) – Reworked to return only Stamina on hit, it also grants an explosion of Stamina after the ability ends, or if recasted; based on how long the duration was. Try to keep this up as much as possible and weave Light or Heavy attacks between abilities to help out your resource management.
Ultimate Option 1 (Classic) Ballista (morph of Rapid Fire | Bow skill line) – One of the best single target ultimates in the game, this skill has a lot of potential. The ultimate itself does great damage, and can be empowered by the Hawk Eye passive, meaning you should always try to cast it after reaching 3 or more stacks. It will continue to fire even if you swap off your Bow bar, so try and make use of Dual Wield’s bonus damage by immediately swapping bars after casting.
Ultimate Option 2 (High AoE) Shooting Star (morph of Meteor | Mage’s Guild skill line) – An ultimate that won’t scale as well as others in terms of raw damage, it still boasts the most AoE damage potential out of Stamina’s available ultimates. Paired with Soul Harvest on your main bar and the ultimate return for hitting targets, you can toss out Shooting Stars like candy.
Ultimate Option 3 (Surviability) Veil of Blades (morph of Consuming Darkness) – While this skill won’t scale well with us in the Champion Point system (it deals Magic damage), it will help our group stay alive through harsh punishment. During the duration it offers you and 5 allies inside the circle Major Protection, reducing all damage taken by 30%. Low Health targets can also synergize it to temporarily gain invisibility and heal over a 4 second duration
