BLOOD FRENZY

Magicka Nightblade VAMPIRE Solo PVE Build

by Hack The Minotaur

The BLOOD FRENZY build in a unique combination of Nightblade and Vampire abilities focused on blood magic. This build has STRONG single target damage, massive self-healing and great survivability!


Primary Sets


Mother’s Sorrow is a great set to run on a Magicka Nightblade thanks to our increased critical damage and critical healing on this build due to the Nightblade’s passives. Not to mention, this set is extremely easy to get and can be used all the way until End Game.

Spell Power Cure is another strong damage set that also synergizes very well with the Nightblade’s many passive healing skills and healing over time effects.

The Ring Of The Pale Order Mythic Item plays very well into this build and with the Magicka Nightblade playstyle in general, providing even more passive healing every time we do damage. Keep in mind that this is an easy way to proc Spell Power Cure as well.

Finally, we will have one additional item slot free on this build which can be filled with any one piece Item Set. A simple, and easy to get option for this will be one piece of the Armor Of The Trainee set for the extra maximum health it provides.
