ESO Battlegrounds objectives and strategies 2023

This build has been updated for the Update 40 patch of the Elder Scrolls Online.

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.

Range DamageRequires Vampire
Good AoERequires DLC
Unique StealthWeak Sustain


Skill Set 1 Front Bar

Front Bar Bow

Merciless Resolve (Morph of Grim Focus | Skill Line : Assassination) – Maintain this buff at all costs as it increases your weapon damage for each stack. You can proc the shot burst damage, after the five light or heavy attacks, so remembers about light attack weaving.

Shadowy Disguise (Morph of Shadow Cloak | Skill Line : Shadow) – Land a guaranteed crit at will and stealth away. Take the other morph if you want no cloak but better healing.

Resolving Vigor (Morph of Vigor | Skill Line : Assault) – Burst heal over time. Recast this skill every 20 seconds for minor resolve.

Acid Spray (Morph of Arrow Spray | Skill Line : Bow) – Great area damage and decent single target.

Healthy Offering (Morph of Malevolent Offering | Skill Line : Siphoning) – Burst heal that gives us Minor Mending. The skill heals you or an ally in front of you.

Shooting Star (Morph of Meteor | Skill Line : Mages Guild) – AoE burst damage and a stun, great for solo or group bursting tool.

Best Choice


Best for overall burst damage.

Secondary Choice

Wood Elf

The Wood Elves, or Bosmer, are mischievous, curious and nimble. Because their homeland of Valenwood is often attacked by the Colovian Imperials, Wood Elves are experts at the art of defense. They are also gifted archers, perhaps the best in all of Tamriel. The capital of the Aldmeri Dominion, Elden Root, lies in the heart of their homeland. It has evolved into a center of political and cultural importance and is of vital strategic importance in the battle to control Tamriel.

Great option for mobility.
