Stamina Nightblade Build “Rampage”

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. Stamina Nightblades have the best sustain among the stamina setups due to Siphoning attacks. That is why it also allows us to play a Kahjiit for maximum damage, whereas most other classes have to go with a redguard to be able to sustain!

General Information

Stamina Nightblades have both very strong single target and AoE damage. Due to certain skills and passives stamina Nightblades have higher sustain then other classes. The rotation is very fast paced, which is the case for most stamina builds that use dualwield as their main skill bar. However, for me personally Stamina Nightblades have the most difficult rotation as there is quite a few skills that have to be activated outside of the rotation, which you will see in the second part of the video where I show off the rotation. I will show both a Non-Maelstrom gear setup and a Maelstrom gear setup. Both setups are viable in all of the content of the game, however if you want to reach the highest amount of damage you must use Maelstrom weapons.

  • Highest single target (ST) damage
  • High area of effect (AoE) Damage
  • Dualwield & Bow Setup
  • Fast paced rotation
  • Crazy sustain

Gear [Best in Slot]

If you want to reach the maximum damage potential of the Stamina Nightblade Build Rampage, then you must use the Maelstrom weapons.

Gear [Non Maelstrom setup]

In case you do not have had the time to farm Maelstrom Arena for the Maelstrom weapons, here is a setup without these weapons. One important note, keep the normal rotation which we are also using for the Maelstrom setup. The reason behind this is, so we already get used to the rotation once we obtain maelstrom weapons!

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 Rampage 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 17k health (with buff-food). You can buy cheap Agility jewelry with healthy trait to reach this value.

Skills

Single Target setup

Trashfight Setup

Why change skills for Single Target and Trashfights?

For trashfights we swap Deadly Cloak out for Steel Tornado because we need the dualwield main AoE damage ability. On Bossfights you want to get as much single target damage as possible, therefore Steel Tornado is obsolete. That is why we replace it with Deadly Cloak, to gain some protection so we can focus on dealing damage. This is not mandatory, so if you want to keep Steel Tornado, do it.
