ESO PVP Builds

Deadlands has launched on the live servers! New sets & builds need to be tested before I can update the site. This will take 2-3 weeks so that a decent build will be posted, and in case some early patch changes occur. Visit my Patreon to see the work in progress on the new builds!

Stamina Nightblade

Updated for Waking Flame

Usually stamblade is run with a 2h/bow setup, which you can find on this page as well. The way I’ve played it however is with a bow/bow build. The maximum burst potential with an open world bowbuild is lower, but its damage is more reliable and I found it to be more fun.
