Table of Contents

Introduction

Welcome to the Stamina Nightblade Build “Rampage” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO. The Rampage build is a Stamina focused damage dealer build. It is made for endgame content like Trials, Dungeons & Maelstrom Arena.

Stamina Nightblades have really good DPS as long as you can keep damaging the target. Surprise Attack deals an insane amount of damage to the target, the only problem is when the enemy moves around a lot you might not be able to damage him and that is when Nightblades loose a lot of damage. They have pretty strong passives in terms of damage and sustain, so boosting Stamina Recovery is fairly easy on a Stamina Nightblade.

Changes from the previous version

We are now using a Nirnhoned Dagger on the Mainhand instead of Infused because it will give us overall a bit more damage, very small difference tho. On the backbar we are now using a Nirnhoned or Precise Bow with Double Drain Health Poisons as they give us the most DPS. Gear otherwise stays the same, I also recommend checking out the Article about Stamina Optimization in Raids, so you can see what kind of gear you have available. I also finally added a rotation to the build.

Resource Management

In terms of resource management i found that the best setup is a mix of Light and Heavy Attacks. However, like always you can totally build for a full light attack setup if you want. Stamina Nightblade has Leeching Strikes which helps a bit with sustain, I recommend using it. You can also run the Dubious Camoran Throne Drink which gives a lot of Stamina recovery, just make sure to adjust your Health values! Play around a little bit and find the best option for you!

  • Leeching Strikes
  • Heavy Attacks
  • Stamina Recovery Glyphs
  • Dubious Camoran Throne Drink

Trials & Dungeons Setup

Weapon Power Potion was active, was Wearing 2x Veli, 5x NMG, 5x VO here.




Gear

Gear Setup 1

  • Twice Fanged vs Spriggan: In case you do not have access to Twice Fanged Serpent set, you could also run Spriggan, all the armor and weapon pieces can be bought via Guildstore, so it is easier to get, especially the weapons!
  • What pieces? It does not matter how you allocate the pieces, as long as you manage to get 5x Twice Fanged Serpent, 5x Vicious Serpent, 2x Mephala or Velidreth with a Maelstrom Bow on the backbar.
  • Vicious ophidian? If you want better sustain, you could use Vicious Serpent set.
  • Briarheart vs Hundings? Both are equally good, briarheart is pretty difficult to get tho.

Gear Setup 2

  • Not enough sustain? In case you do think you lack sustain, make sure to use 1x Glyph of reduced skillcost on your jewelry. That should be enough to gain enough sustain.
  • Damage? This setup gets very close to the damage of the Best in Slot setup. The only thing is that you will not boost your group members dps.

Gear beginner

This setup is dedicated to people that have not had the chance to farm the necessary gear for the maximum damage potential of the Venom build. All the gear here is either craftable or cheap to get in a guildstore. Make sure to ask a friend to craft Hunding’s Rage and Night Mother’s Gaze. Agility jewelry can be obtained in the Guildstores. I do recommend having around 18k health (with buff-food). You can buy cheap Agility jewelry with healthy trait to reach this value.

Skills
