Stamina Nightblade Solo PVE ONE BAR Build

by Hack The Minotaur

The BRAWLER Build is a powerful Solo Stamina Nightblade build with high single target and damage over time plus absolutely MASSIVE Damage Shields and healing potential. This build can be run as a simple One-Bar build, or you can use the two full skill bars for even greater damage potential.


Primary Sets


Medusa is our main damage set on this build, providing TONS of Critical Chance plus passive Minor Force at all times.

Hexos Ward provides a massive defensive bonus, giving us a free damage shield every 7 seconds that can gain further strength through Champion Points.

Finally, Selene adds even more damage to the build thanks to its huge potential damage proc.

Consumables, Race, Mundus


Race

My favorite Race for this build is Imperial, thanks to the extra Health, Stamina and cost reduction on all abilities. Other great choices for this build include Orc for more damage and speed as well as Nord for better stats and resistances.

Skills Discussion & Rotation


One Bar Rotation

Buff with Relentless Focus and a Weapon Power Potion. Then cast:

Stampede -> Twisting Path -> Carve x3

Next, weave Surprise Attack with Light Attacks until your DOTs just about run out. Use Relentless Focus and Incap Strike when ready.

Two Bar Rotation

Buff with Relentless Focus and Leeching Strikes. Then cast:

Stampede -> Twisting Path -> Bar Swap. -> Power Extraction -> Carve x3 -> Surprise Attack x3

Use Relentless Focus and Incap Strike when ready.

Notes

You MUST light attack between each ability, both to charge your spectral bow and gain the healing from leeching strikes. Also, CARVE only needs to be cast 3 times initially to reach max bleed stacks. After that it only takes 1 cast to refresh the stacked DOT effect.
