Stamina Nightblade Solo

Welcome to my Stamina Nightblade Solo PVE Build for The Elder Scrolls Online. The Build is designed for players that prefer to play Solo, challenging themselves in any type of PVE content. 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.

A strong combination of Two Handed and Nightblade abilities. The Nightblade is a potent Solo Class but hard to master!

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.
