The ESO Vodcast – Nightblade Breakdown

ESO Stealth

It’s all about the Nightblade on this ESO Vodcast

Whats up everyone, I hope you are ready to tune in for another “skill breakdown” from The ESO Vodcast. This time around, it’s the stealth-loving Nightblade class. Be sure to listen in as we go over all of the active and passive skills the class has to offer. Be sure to brace yourself for some in-depth theorycrafting and class-building discussion, as we debate our favorite potential Nightblade builds. Nightblade will certainly offer players who are looking to “bring the DPS” a great option, and we’re pretty excited to debate our favorite face-melting combinations. After we’ve gotten through the skill breakdown and theorycrafting discussions we’ll talk about what builds we would like to utilize ourselves and take a stab at what we think we might see in end-game PvE and PvP. We’ll be sure to end the show with user questions from the audience, so either save them for chat, post them in the comments section below, or shoot them over to us on Twitter (@SomaJT and @DeagenTV). If you’re excited to learn about what skills the Nightblade has to offer in the Elder Scrolls Online then make sure to catch this episode of The ESO Vodcast!

 

Watch the REPLAY!

    Do you think or has it been said if shadow cloak and consuming darkness will bypass being seen by magelight or by not being in the shadows? I think this will have to be the case to make stealth be useful to this class unless Cyrodiil has shadows all over the place or you only kill peeps by night.

    Great show guys. Good to see some interesting theory craft of skill loadouts.

    I will be playing a Nightblade for my starting character, but I will be playing him not as DPS but more a Utility/Healer/Escapist, so the Shadow skill tree and the Siphoning tree will probably be my lines of choice. Since he will also be a Provisioner + Alchemist, the Catalyst passive will be awesome for me. But the most interesting part of my build I’m looking forward to is dealing the least amount of damage (if any) while still trying to reach level cap. I know this path will take me longer to reach level cap, but this is Elder Scrolls after all and my character is not going to be the big badass killing everything around him like the majority of the other players. :)

    With all the classes done I feel like so many builds are possible (imagine you can mix caracter-classes-guild-weapon-vampire/werewolf skill and morph em all, god ..)

    Don’t kill, Don’t steal and don’t attack people without reason

    The strong survive and the strongest rule

     Mental toughness !!

    Too much discussion of ‘Rotations’. Very frustrating.

    I think Tanking nightblades are going to be especially powerful. That ability to get in close and stun with the teleport strike will do well with two handers.

     ”O Aka, for our shared madness I do this! I watch you watching me watching back! Umaril dares call us out, for that is how we made him!” And it was during these fits of anger and nonsense that Pelinal would fall into the Madness, where whole swaths of lands were devoured in divine rampage to become Void, and Alessia would have to pray to the Gods for their succor, and they would reach down as one mind and soothe the Whitestrake until he no longer had the will to kill the earth in whole.  ~ Excerpt from ”Song of Pelinal, Volume 6”

    You and I might have different definitions of ‘tanking’.

    Given the small amount of mitigation native in the Nightblade, they are going to *need* to use 1H+Shield more than other classes for tanking.

    Nightblade certainly soundsl like it has some interesting class skills, like Cripple and Teleport Strike. In my opinion, if the Sorcecer is the trolly class, NB is going to be a trollhunter

    No toralence for cowardice, No mercy for the enemy, No rusted swords equipted, No dented armor in use, No drained enchantments, Nothing but full devotion in battle

    Not bad. Do something similar about Dragonknight.

    Great show guys! I love the Nightblade class and seeing this, I really want to create a Nightblade vampire now! And I usually hate playing as a build like the Nightblades!

    Brother Atropos, Soma, or Deagan….I am trying to find the youtube link to the nightblade video as I convert the youtube to mp3 files and listen to them on my mp3 player on the way to work…is the youtube link for this vid up yet? I was able to convert the other 3 class vids..let me know!

    @HollyDrilling I completely disagree with your statement. The nightblade clas will never be useless nor any class for that matter. The starting trees are just a small foundation and you don’t even have to pick anything from those trees…there will be 20+ skill trees in ESO so you can be anything you want to be..this is based on your build and your choices in skill lines. I for example plan to play a sorcer….but you can bet i will be throwing in some heavy armor in there and switching to a greatsword if you try to fight me face to face….this is why i am so interested in ESO…your character class has nothing to do with your overall character…it all boils down to what you want to be.

    Hey Magisto, the YouTube upload isn’t available quite yet, but hopefully will be today. Depends on when @Deagen has time to finish uploading it!
