One Bar Stamina Nightblade Solo PVE Build | Elder Scrolls Online

One Bar Stamina Nightblade Build

Table of Contents


A strong One Bar Stamina Nightblade PVE Build for pure Solo Gameplay. The Build relies on Nightblade abilities and Two Handed as its only Weapon to complete almost every PVE content alone.

You can use it to defeat Overworld Bosses, farm Public Dungeons, complete 4-man Dungeons in Normal or Veteran Difficulty and Solo Arenas like Maelstrom Arena and Vateshran Hollows.

For a more traditional 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.

You can find more Builds in the Nightblade Builds page.
