Welcome to my Magicka Nightblade build for Dragon Bones patch. This build is aimed at End-Game PvE content but works as it is on basic overland content.
Here you can find info on how to setup your attributes, what gear you should use, how to set your skill bars and champion points.
Max Magicka: 40000 – 43000
Max Health: 16000 – 18000
Max Stamina: 9000 – 11000
Spell Damage: 1900 – 3700
Spell Critical: 40 – 60 %
64 Magicka, 0 Health, 0 Stamina
What weapon trait should I choose?
Infused is the go to choice if you only wanna push higher damage on single target.
Nirnhoned for the back bar is the best choice overall and provides best balance between both AOE and single target damage.
Recommended choice is to go Infused on both Main and Backup Hand Weapon for this setup.
Don’t have access to some of the recommended gear or want to use something else? Here’s other options you can go with such as:
You can use Julianos instead of Mechanical Acuity or Burning Spellweave.
You can also use Master Architect instead of Burning Spellweave.
You can switch Moondancer to Infallible Aether or Willpower.
If you don’t have access to Maelstrom Staff, use random staff with specific trait and enchantment instead.
Item Set Info:
Impale, Siphoning Attacks, Merciless Resolve, Force Pulse, Inner Light, Elemental Rage
Dampen Magic, Elemental Blockade, Crippling Grasp, Twisting Path, Inner Light, Soul Harvest
You can switch around the places of abilities as long as you keep the same abilities on same bars. However you can switch places with Twisting Path and Siphoning Attacks if you want to have your Twisting Path on front bar and Siphoning Attacks on back bar. You can also move Dampen Magic to front bar and Impale to back bar.
Re-morph Dampen Magic to Harness Magicka
Re-morph Force Pulse to Crushing Shock
If you’re new to the game or Nightblade class in general, I suggest you to read carefully what the different abilities do, how much they cost, whats their duration, cast time etc. so you understand how you should rotate your abilities and how they work.
