Stamina Nightblade Gankbuild for PvP Elder Scrolls Online ESO

Stamina Nightblade Gankbuild “Gankmania”


Welcome to the Stamina Nightblade Gankbuild “Gankmania” for Elder Scrolls Online. Make sure to bookmark the link as I will keep updating the build for each new Update of ESO.
The Gankmania build is focusing on insanely high burst damage. The build itself has rather low sustain. However if you manage to get the hit off on the target, he will be dead in most cases.

General Information

The “Gankmania” build is focusing on high burst damage. Light and Medium armor targets are our focus. In most cases one heavy attack into an Incapacitating Strike is enough to kill of enemies. It is very important that you focus on those targets, and not on tanks! Take your time to prepare a kill. This build has a very tricky playstyle, as we are in meleefights most of the time and escaping can be tricky in some situations. Which means that positioning with this is very important. Do not engage into fights too long, as you will run into sustain issues otherwise.

  • High burst damage
  • Gankbuild
  • Medium Armor

Gear [Best in Slot]

You can get Alchemist weapons that are craftable, that way you can save money, because Spriggan Weapons are quite expensive!

Backbaring Alchemist? You can do that if you want, I simply did not do it because it confuses a lot of players. If you backbar Alchemist, you can have a two piece Monster set!

Why Impenetrable? We are fighting mostly in melee, that is why it can be very tricky to avoid some incoming damage, that is why. If you think you can deal with it, use Divine to boost your Shadow Mundus!

Stamina Nightblade Gankbuild

Why no Fear?  With this build we are aiming for fast kills, hit & run. If the enemy does not die within your burst, then you want to make sure to find some cover till your gankcombo is back up. Do not engage into fights for too long, after all you are not a tank!
