    Hello!

    This looks like a fun build. Im currently trying to setup my nightblade this way.

    But without any health enchantments I only have around 10k health.. wont that be an issue?

    How much more health should the food provide?

    5 or 6k

    First of all thanks for the build. Glad I’m not the only one loving dual bows so much.

     

    My character is not maxed out or geared yet, so I wanted to test this build on the PTR.

    Sadly not every set is available for a exact test of the build there so I went with this setup:

    http://en.uesp.net/wiki/Special:EsoBuildEditor?id=12703

     

    Quick overview of the important differences:

    – Wrong Race (Picked Dunmer on PTR, my character is Woodelf on Live <-> Khajit would be best)

    – Vicious Ophidian not available

    – Jewelry is not Legendary

     

    With this I was able to get 24k DPS max with Food and this Potion for Major Brutality:

    http://esoitem.uesp.net/item-112428-1-4.png

    So I have been wondering why the difference in DPS is that big compared to your DPS. (I only get 60% of your value)

     

    My guesses:

    – Epic Jewelry:

    With only Epic gear except Weapons I was getting 20k DPS. So those 3 extra items to gold should also not contribute that much DPS?

    – Wrong Race:

    I know that my race is not optimal, but I imagine the difference would not be this big – maybe 2k?

    – Vicious Ophidian:

    This I can not test – so it is my best guess as the culprit. But 15k DPS seems a bit much for one set?

    – No Tank debuffs etc while testing:

    I did that PTR test solo without any other debuffs. Again I expect a smaller difference.

    – All small differences added maybe?

    – L2P:

    I get something completely wrong somehow. With your Rotation and good weaving this hopefully is not the case.

     

    I have been planing a variant of this build for my character:

    http://en.uesp.net/wiki/Special:EsoBuildEditor?id=12072

    Not being able to pull the DPS even without any variation discouraged my a bit. XD

     

    DPS Role is a new territory for me, so I’m thankful for any advise on the matter. =)

    Hey, it could be several things. Perhaps it is your execution of rotation. Execution of rotation is fairly big when doing DPS. Messing up a rotation can cost quite a bit. Another thing is the gear. VO is pretty big in terms if contribution. Also the race is a big factor (3k difference at least). Ultimately though i would have to see a video of you doing the rotation. Additionally did you have a tank runnig puncture?

     

    All these aspects add up.

    Yes it may be all aspects adding up then. I didn’t have a tank running puncture for the test as well.

     

    Well I’ll have to be content with lower DPS then, because I’d like to keep my race and the VO set will sadly be out of question for my DPS Twink for quite a while.

    It’s quite sad that such minor differences in character builds result in such big number differences. Sometimes I wish ESO wouldn’t turn into a cookiecuter builds MMO more and more…. Hopefully with Morrowind and the leaked CP changes all sets will get re balanced and viable again.

    A girl can always hope.  ;)

     

    Thank you very much for your quick response

    Don’t worry about it.

    Even with the lower DPS it’s better than my old build could do on PTR with the same gear (15k DPS).

    So I learned a lot from it. =)

    Hi Nos,

    I have played your build since morrowind and I like the style very much, but in long fights I have sustain issues. I would greatly appreciate it if you could update the build for morrowind. I have just a VDSA bow, no Maelstrom bow. How would you design the build with anything but the Maelstrom bow?

     

    Greetings

    Yes. Im still playing around with the rotation…there may be one more change with the way I do it, but everything else is set…

    Hi, thx for sharing your build. Just one Question please: “Proc rate for the Axe passive is too low to warrant using it, and daggers scale better with raid buffs.” If you use LA or HA before Surprise Attack, you get more than 8% chance to procc bleeding. Ok, you don’t hit with the main hand all the time, but it should be much more than 8% chance.

    What would you say?

    I would say that after testing it aeveral time I didnt think that it was worth it unfortunately. The axe goes proc, but i was getting literally the same dps on the dummy with 2 daggers as I was with 1 dagger 1 axe and daggers scale better with raid buffs.
