2H Stamina Nightblade PVE Build ESO

2H Stamina Nightblade

Table of Contents

Description

Shadowfury is a 2H Stamina Nightblade PVE Build and an alternative way to play as a Stamina Nightblade. The build is using a Two Handed weapon instead of Dual Wield.

The Build offers different setups for Solo and Group gameplay as well as different back-bar options! Shadowfury is a fun PVE Build that combines Two Handed Weapon skills and Nightblade abilities.

For a more traditional, dual wield Stamina Nightblade PVE Build take a look at Brawler.

If you are a new player, you can take a look at my Nightblade Beginner Guide.

If you are looking for a Solo PVE Build for Arenas like the Maelstrom Arena and Vateshran Hollows, take a look at my Stamina Nightblade Solo Build.

You can find more Builds in the Nightblade Builds page.
