Stamina Nightblade Bow PVE Build – Arrowsong

Stamina Nightblade Bow

Table of Contents


Arrowsong is a Stamina Nightblade Bow PVE Build for Solo and Group Gameplay. A balanced PVE Build that is using the Bow as its only weapon in order to complete almost every content in-game.

For a more traditional Dual Wield Stamina Nightblade PVE Build you can 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.

Armor Sets

Slimecraw is a great option to boost Critical Chance. Kjalnar’s Nightmare as alternative if you are not using the Harpooner’s Wading Kilt Mythic Item.

(Perfected)Arms of Relequen: Best in Slot Stamina DPS set in ESO at the moment.

Kinras’s Wrath: Great DPS Set. Briarheart and Tzogvin’s Warband are good alternatives.

Harpooner’s Wading Kilt: Boosts Critical Chance and Critical Damage when dealing Direct Damage. Great option for Bow, ranged builds.

Thunderous Volley/Perfected Thunderous Volley: Best option to complete sets that don’t have a bow of their own and to increase our AOE-DOT damage from Endless Hail.
