Terror is a Magblade PVP Build that relies on fear traps to immobilize your enemies, strong burst damage and sturdy defense. The build is using Manifestation of Terror as its core skill to deploy traps and immobilize enemies.
Terror is a stealth PVP Build perfect for Battlegrounds and open world gameplay. Not meant for direct confrontations but sturdy enough to survive and reset fights.
For a different approach to Magicka Nightblade PVP you can take a look at Lifestealer.

Terror is a challenging and fun Magblade PVP Build that relies on fear traps to immobilize and destroy your targets. Luring enemies and striking from stealth makes the gameplay tactical and more enjoyable.
Terror can survive sturdier/stronger enemies but shines when you play stealthy. Magicka sustain can become a problem if you are spamming skills too much. The goal is to finish your target fast and hide in the shadows again.
A fun Magblade PVP Build that you will have to practice to get used to its gameplay.
Buff yourself with Merciless Resolve, Siphoning Attacks, Mirage, Channeled Acceleration and set your Manifestation of Terror trap.
You can use Manifestation of Terror directly to an enemy as well. Once the enemy is feared apply Elemental Drain, drop Shooting Star if it is ready, Heavy Attack with your staff and continue with Lotus Fan, Crippling Grasp, Impale until the enemy is dead. Use Assassin’s Will whenever it is ready and Spell Wall to survive if in danger.
Light Attack before every skill to boost your damage.
