Introduction

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

Gankmania focuses on a melee gank playstyle as a Nightblade. We have really good survability with our stats, plus we have some really strong combos available to kill off enemies and very fast ultimate regeneration. I will present two different setups, one with a Monster Set and one without, I recommend testing out both setups and use the one you prefer more. We are also using Eternal Hunt set which is essential for this build, as it makes it a lot easier to tease our enemies and they barely can scratch us as we can use the rune to root them and cloak to disappear.

  • High burst damage
  • Gankbuild
  • Insane sustain
  • Medium Armor
  • Two Hander/ Bow Setup
  • Eternal Hunt

Changes from the previous version

I completely changed the build around as the last version was from Homestead.

Resource Management

As you can see we have insane recovery stats on both setups, so you should be able to sustain pretty good. More important is that you learn how to manage your Magicka propperly, because we use this to debuff enemies and more important, to escape and trick the enemies.

Cyrodiil Setup

Setup 1 No Monster Set


Rally, Relentless Focus and Tristat Potion was active. Purple gear and gold Weapon. Witchmothers Drink.

Setup 2 Monster Set Velidreth

Rally, Relentless Focus and Tristat Potion was active. Purple gear and gold Weapon. Orzorga Smoked Bear Haunch Food.



Gear

I will present you the two setups, one without a Monster set which is more based on sustain and second setup which is a bit more bursty.

Asylum weapon should be easy to farm for both setups, you can get that in Normal Asylum Sanctorium, the difference between an Imperfect and Perfect Asylum 2H is basically non existant. In case you do not have a Master Bow (tho I highly recommend farming one) you could use a random other bow with Infused trait and with a weapon damage enchant.

Gear Setup 1

This setup here is for those that prefer to play without Monster sets, it has a bit better sustain and more magicka to use our support abilities more.

  • Eternal Hunt: One of the best sets in the game for a Nightblade, makes it really hard to attack you as you can dodgeroll, leave that rune back there that roots the enemy and then cloak away and he will never find you again, with practice, this is a very strong set once you know how to use it perfectly.
  • Bone Pirate: this one allows us to get really good recovery and stats for both Magicka and Stamina. As you can see we have so much Magicka available with this setup, its insane.
  • Well Fitted? I do think 2 Well Fitted pieces are optimal to also have some sort of dodgeroll and sprint cost reduction, which is good because you dodgeroll a lot as Nightblade.
  • Master Bow: If possible, get one in infused, because on top of the extra weapon damage we get anyway from the bows set bonus, we can now put a Weapon damage enchantment there and boost it with infused, giving us a total of over 700 Weapon damage which is crazy. Also works with other traits but you will get less weapon damage.
    Asylum Greatsword: This one is the perfect weapon for the build, it provides us with really good extra Ultimate regen when killing enemies, basically making our Ultimate ready again instantly.

Skills

  • Why Executioner? We use this over Killers Blade because we are using the Asylum Greatsword and therefore need Executioner to get it to proc.
