Stamina Nightblade PVE DPS ONE BAR Bow Build

by Hack The Minotaur

The TOXIC RAIDER Build is an EASY One Bar set up for the Stamina Nightblade class in The Elder Scrolls Online with a focus on Bow as the primary weapon. Most gear sets for this build can be easily farmed or bought on guild traders and the easy one bar rotation means no complicated bar swapping is needed. Plus this build does tons of TOXIC DAMAGE!


Primary Sets


Swamp Raider is our main damage set on this build, buffing almost every single damaging ability on this set up which is either Poison or Disease-based.

Kinra’s Wrath provides even more easy damage on all targets thanks to the addition of Major Berserk on the 5 piece.

Finally, the Harpooner’s Wading Kilt Mythic adds even more damage to the build in the form of lots of Critical Chance and bonus Critical Damage. So much for just one piece!

Of course the Thunderous Volley set adds greater DPS while utilizing the Volley skill on the back up skill bar. And finally to make the one remaining body piece, a Slimecraw should will be ideal thanks to the bonus Critical Chance.

Alternative Sets


Kinra’s Wrath can be easily replaced with easier to obtain sets such as New Moon Acolyte or Briarheart if you need to at first.

You can even upgrade the build to a Trials set up by using Arms Of Relequen.

Without the Mythic item, a full monster set like Stormfist then becomes a possibility.
