Introduction

Welcome to the Magicka Nightblade Vampire Build “Bloodlust” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. This Magicka Nightblade Build is made for Trials, Dungeons and Maelstrom. You can also find other Magicka Nightblade content on the website such as:

This build is focused on a true Vampire experience. Nightblades in combination with Vampire make up for good stealth like gameplay in addition with health draining mechanics!

Vampires have the drawback of a huge cost increase on all non-Vampire abilities, therefore the False God's Devotion set can really make a huge difference to help with sustain. In addition, we use the set Bahraha's Curse that will constantly proc and heal us for the damage caused which is nice. For the Monster Set we go with the Nerien'eth Monster Set that casts a Crystal that explodes at the targets area.

  • Vampire
  • Magicka Nightblade
  • Double Destro
  • Stealth

Resource Management

Siphoning Attacks has to be always kept active to benefit from the extra resources and it also increases your healing done by a bit.

Potions should always be used on cooldown to gain the maximum benefit from them.

Heavy Attacks help you restore Magicka, if you drop low on resources do a few Heavy Attacks between skills to refill your Magicka.

  • Siphoning Attacks
  • Potions
  • Heavy Attacks

Vampire Setup

5x Perf. False Gods Devotion, 5x, Bahraha’s Curse, 2x Nerien’eth on a High Elf with Solitude Salmon Millet Soup buff food (Screenshot is from the Greymoor Chapter).
