Stamina Nightblade PVE Build – Brawler

Stamina Nightblade PVE Build

Table of Contents

Description

Brawler is a Stamina Nightblade PVE Build relying on Critical damage and strong attacks to kill fast your enemies. The build is balanced around solo and group gameplay. The idea behind Brawler is to use debuff, DOT skills to soften targets before we can finish them with our powerful execute ability. This is why we are using Armor Sets that boost our Single Target and AOE Damage.

For a Magicka Nightblade PVE Build, you can take a look at Shadowfire.

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.
