One Bar Stamina Nightblade DPS Build

One Bar Stamina Nightblade DPS

A strong One Bar Stamina Nightblade DPS Build for Solo and Group Gameplay! The build is using the Oakensoul Ring Mythic Item to boost its damage and capabilities! Thanks to the buffs from this ring, we can focus only on offensive skills and achieve great damage with this one bar build!

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.
