Introduction

Welcome to the Magicka Nightblade Build PvP “Bomb” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO.

The Magicka Nightblade PvP Build „Bomb” is optimized for Cyrodiil. The build is used to blow up tightly stacked groups, for example on flags on an outpost or in a keep. The more people the better! The chances are high that you also kill yourself, but after all you will gain a lot of AP. To make this work we are stacking a lot of offensive sets like Balorgh, which is a new set that drops in one of the Wolfhunter DLC Dungeons that adds an insane amount of Spell and Weapon Damage to you, with the right modifiers you can gain over 1200+ Spell Damage from that set alone, which is crazy. The second set is the all famous bomber set Vicious Death which makes people explode once they die, causing a huge chain reaction, especially vicious on stacked enemies! The last set we use is Spinner's Garments to amp up our damage further. All together we are getting around 5600 Spell Damage along with over 46k Magicka and the Spinner’s Garments extra Spell Penetration as you will see in the character sheet picture below. We use Dual Wield because it results in more overall Spell Damage for the build.

  • Bomber Build
  • Insane AoE Burst Combo
  • Light Armor
  • Dual Wield/Resto Staves
  • Optimized for Cyrodiil
  • Strong vs stacked enemies
  • 5’662 Spell Damage and 46’260 Magicka

Changes from the previous version

This is a new build added with the Wolfhunter DLC, Summerset Chapter.

Resource Management

Resource management can be tough, but with the Maelstrom Restoration Staff and Siphoning Attacks you can deal with it. I usually run normal Max Health Max Magicka food. However, you can aso go with Clockwork Citrus Filet (or Witchmother’s Potent Brew) of you struggle with sustain. Other than that, you can also use potions to fill up your magicka.

  • Maelstrom Restoration Staff
  • Siphoning Attacks
  • Clockwork Citrus Filet (or Witchmother’s Potent Brew)
  • Magicka Potions

Important Info for Magicka Nightblade Bomb Build PvP

Here you can find information about what race, buff-food, potions & poisons you want to use. I also do list all the passives that you need for this setup.

Buff-food

Solitude Salmon-Millet Sauce (Max Health+Max Magicka)
or
Clockwork Citrus Filet (or Witchmoter’s Potent Brew)

Solitude Salmon Millet soup

Clockwork Citrus Filet

Mundus Stone

The Apprentice (Increased Spell Damage)

Race

Altmer
Darkelf
Breton
Argonian

Potions

You can use various Potions, I recommend running the Spell Crit Potions as you get Spellcrit, Spelldamage and Magicka.

Spell-Crit Potions
(Spell-crit, Spell Damage, Magicka)
(Cornflower, Ladys Smock, Water Hyacinth)

Passives

Vampire

Vampire can be nice for this build thanks to Dark Stalker, because of the increased movement speed while you crouch.

Be aware that you will take increased damage from fire attacks, prismatic weapon enchants and fighters guild abilities.

Dark Stalker

This allows you to ignore the Movement Speed penalty while you are sneaking or invisible, which is huge because we can use Shadowy Disguise a lot and do not get the speed penalty.

Undeath

Damage Reduction on low health is also very helpful, especially in combination with Healing Ward which makes it really hard to kill us.

Supernatural Recovery

This gives us both 10% Magicka and Stamina Recovery which is a nice addition on top of the other effects.
