Stamina Nightblade Gank

Table of Contents


Kunoichi is a Stamina Nightblade Gank PVP Build, perfect for open world gameplay in Cyrodiil and the Imperial City.

This is a Stamina Nightblade Melee Gank PVP Build that is focusing on boosting your damage in order to execute your target fast.

Kunoichi is not a build for prolonged, “fair” fights. Pick your targets, finish them and escape.

If you are looking for a Bow Gank Build take a look at Arbalest.

For a strong, brawler type, Stamina Nightblade PVP Build take a look at my Elusive Warrior.
