During the beta release of ESO, Nightblades were the most popular class. Not too surprising given the constant appeal of rogues throughout MMOs. ESO Nightblade builds may stand out from the typical rogues gallery due to both their flexibility in play style, and heavy reliance on magic, but they are still rogues. And who doesn’t love a rogue?

For players used to other MMO rogues, creating an elder scrolls online nightblade build can be a bit challenging. Put simply, there are just too many options. This class can be built out as DPS assassins, magic-based battlefield controllers, stealth tanks, ranged dps, thieves, and much more. What to play a paladin-esque devotee of a dark god? You can. A woods-ranger who uses poison arrows and magic mists to deceive and destroy her enemies? Go for it. The flexibility and options available for this class–especially in combination with the various races of Tamriel–is practically unheard of in mmos. Unfortunately, all this flexibility can make building a character difficult.

Unless you really understand how different skills, abilities, weapons, and racial modifiers interact, it is very easy to start with an amazing idea, and end up with an unplayable creation. It’s even easier to try to do too much–after all, what’s to stop you from building an assassin-ranger-tank-dps-ranged-mage-fighter? A lot has been made of the ‘unlimited’ skill points in ESO, but that doesn’t mean you can actually build absolutely anything and make it work. If only because the extremely limited stat points will trip you up if you try.

To get the most out of your elder scrolls online nightblade builds, you need to pick up a class guide. With the guide, you can learn what works, and what doesn’t, find pre-made elder scrolls online nightblade builds, with detailed information on why they work, learn how stat and skill points work together, find inspiration for new types of builds, even find an ESO Nightblade PVP build or two.

For rogue loving eso-players, Nightblades are almost a dream come true, with their flexible play styles, huge range of build possibilities, and simply beautiful stealth options. But if you want to get the most out of these rogue-type characters, you need to understand them. ESO rogues aren’t like rogues in other MMOs, so if you want to build a truly epic Nightblade, pick up the guide and see what you end up with.
