ESO One Bar PvP Stamina Nightblade Build

The guide gives gear, skills, champion points, and consumables for an ESO One Bar PvP Stamina Nightblade Build!

Stamina Nightblade One Bar PvP

This build has been updated for the Updated 42, the Gold Road Chapter of the Elder Scrolls Online (ESO).

Why Should You Play ESO One Bar PvP Stamina Nightblade Build?

The ESO One Bar PvP Stamina Nightblade Build is one of the hardest-hitting in the game. It uses a bow, proc sets, and plays at range with stealth. This is a great build for damage but requires Stage 3 Vampire for optimal gameplay. This build’s most important aspect is playing it with the Oakensoul Ring mythic. This mythic one-piece gives you huge buffs that stack with our recommended five-piece gear set Daedric trickery. Then you can stack huge defensive buffs and be ultra tanky with high damage.
