[PVP + DPS] Stamina/Nightblade – Doctor Sneaky Poison Hammer Pants

[PVP + DPS] Stamina/Nightblade – Doctor Sneaky Poison Hammer Pants

| Builder: @Gankimus| Class: Nightblade| Race: Khajiit | Style: PvP DPS | DiGX: Yes |

Overview

With a PhD in Rektology, the good Doctor skillfully employs speed with maneuverability on the battlefield to stay alive and finish targets. Focusing on flexibility and stealthy movement, his medium gear is Well-Fitted for peak dodge rolling and running performance, providing Dr. Pants with some very strong escape or ganking options. Maximize damage by stacking abilities and managing procs with timed bar swaps. This build works well in traffic but really shines when surprising some fools out of stealth with all the goodies stacked.

Main Hand: Radiant Mage Light, Poison Injection, Relentless Focus, Razor Caltrops, Piercing Mark    Toxic Barrage

Offhand: Rally, Surprise Attack, Critical Rush, Dark Cloak, Resolving Vigor    Onslaught


Potions & Food

The Doctor carries a full bag filled with all manner of tonics and restoratives to help him cope with life’s difficult circumstances.  Liberal consumption of Immovability potions keeps Dr Pants mobile and having Invisibility handy for a timely escape when the going gets rough ensures that “Sneaky” is  more than just a fancy title.  Keep your resources regenerating with purple drink and you have a versatile build that allows you to get in  and out of a fight quickly with deadly effect.


Notes

  • To maximize results drink potions while on the 2h bar in order to proc your Clever Alchemist buff, and then to switch to the bow bar to proc Sheer Venom.
  • If looking for greater survivability consider flexing in Monster sets such as Troll King (Health Regen) or Pirate Skeleton (Resist).
  • Some possible skills to consider swapping in and out depending on circumstances include the following: Mass Hysteria, Shuffle (Skills), Dawn Breaker of Smiting, Bolstering Darkness, Incapacitating Strike (Ultimates).
  • This build uses Clever Alchemist, Sheer Venom, Molag Kena (1 piece), and Velidreth (1 piece).
  • This work drew inspiration from @onetrvth’s Toxic Avenger build.
[PvP + DPS] Magicka / Sorcerer – The Gladiator

[PvP + DPS] Magicka / Sorcerer – The Gladiator

| Builder: @PathwayM | Class: Sorcerer | Race: Altmer | Style: PvP DPS | DiGX: Yes |

Overview

The Gladiator was designed to provide an incredible amount of staying power by addressing the stamina management weakness Magicka Sorcerers face.  This build’s 1426 stamina recovery provides us with a never ending fountain of stamina that is used for three things: breaking free from crowd control effects, dodge rolling, and casting Dark Conversion to replenish both magicka and health.  Between the gear traits and champion point investment, the Gladiator has the same amount of dodge roll and sprint cost reduction as a player in seven pieces of medium armor, 28%.

Main Hand: Crystal Fragments, Crushing Shock, Endless Fury, Streak, Hardened Ward    Eye of the Storm

Offhand: Dark Conversion, Healing Ward, Haunting Curse, Harness Magicka, Power Surge    Absorption Field


Potions & Food

This build’s primary potion, Essence of Immovability, provides us with both immunity to disabling effects and 10% spell critical rating which we lack elsewhere in this build.  The second potion, Essence of Detection, provides us Stealth Detection which is primarily used to prevent nightblades from escaping.  The food of choice is a champion 150 purple triple-stat food, Longfin Pasty with Melon Sauce for example, which provides us with the necessary stamina for breaking free and dodge rolling.


Notes

  • A charged restoration staff provides our lightning glyph a 65% chance to proc concussed with a single light attack; causing our opponent to take 8% more damage from all sources.  The charged trait on our restoration staff also affects our destruction staff bar so all of elemental damage on that bar will have a 220% higher chance to apply status effects… yeah… I know… crazy!.
  • This build uses Amber Plasm, The Willpower Set, and Pirate Skeleton (2 piece).

[PVE + DPS] Stamina / Nightblade – Bolt On Horsepower

[PVE + DPS] Stamina / Nightblade – Bolt On Horsepower

| Builder: @infrno187 | Class: Nightblade | Race: Khajiit | Style: PvE DPS | DiGX: No |

Overview

Looking for a build that’s straightforward with easily obtainable gear but that still brings the pain? Well, look no further than Infrno’s latest build. As the name implies it is all about bolt on horsepower or in this case raw output through craftable sets. In this build, we’ll stack up Hunding’s Rage & Night Mother with some good ole fashioned Agility Set jewelry, light our hair on fire and scream into the abyss at 100 M.P.H. Finish the build off with a monster set which procs off of damage, along with Orzorga’s Tripe Trifle Pocket (blue stamina recovery/max health food) and you’re set. With this build expect to find an excellent starting point for all of your PvE needs. With its over 3,000 weapon damage and 74.0% critical chance unbuffed this little demon is just waiting to be unleashed.

Main Hand: Blood Craze, Bloodthirst, Ambush, Surprise Attack, Steel Tornado    Incapacitating Strikes

Offhand: Relentless Focus, Poison Injection, Endless Hail, Sap Essence, Rapid Maneuver    Ice Comet


Potions & Food

The Bolt on Horsepower build is extremely flexible, with its potions and food being no different. Here one can use any potion that suits their needs. While the same can be said for food, for the maximum benefit we strongly encourage you to use Orzorga’s Tripe Trifle Pocket.


Notes

  • PvP Variant. Looking to maybe branch out into some PvP? With the same armor and a few different skills swapped in, you’re set for both small and large scale gameplay. Start out harassing your group’s enemies from a distance, then close the gap in order to finish them off with up close pressure. There are several escape skills if things don’t go quite to plan. But that never happens to you – does it? A few more tweaks and the makings of a solid ganking build begin to emerge. The important thing to remember is to not be afraid to experiment with different skills to suit your needs while in Cryodiil.

Main Hand: Flying Blade, Bloodthirst, Ambush, Surprise Attack, Steel Tornado    Incapacitating Strikes

Offhand: Relentless Focus, Poison Injection, Lethal Arrow, Dark Cloak, Rapid Maneuver    Toxic Barrage
