Our last guide covered the primary bar of the Bloodleach Slayer build for Nightblades. Today’s guide covers the secondary bar you will need when hunting Elder Scrolls Online items. Like before you heave Elder Scrolls Online armor wearing character will be using life-taps to stay alive with this build.
Life giving Elder Scrolls Online Weapons
The leach in the name of this build is not just for show. It is there because of this build’s use of life-tap abilities. One of these is Entropy (Degeneration). The latter deals damage over time to an enemy while binding them. It heals your Elder Scrolls Online armor clad character over time too. Furthermore, the morph of the skill gives you a chance to heal your character on each weapon attack. Lastly, the character’s spell damage is also increased.
Siphoning Strikes (Leeching Strikes) makes an appearance on the secondary skill bar too. This ability is on both bars largely to allow your character’s weapon attacks to restore magicka, stamina and health. Make sure to slot it in the same position so you’ll always know what to press to toggle it.
Taunting with your Elder Scrolls Online Weapons
A heavy Elder Scrolls Online armor build cannot be called a tank unless it has a taunt. The Bloodleach Slayer has Inner Fire (Inner Rage) to fulfill this qualification. When used it will deal damage to a target and cause it to attack your Nightblade. The morph for this skill allows allies to use the Radiate synergy which will deal damage to enemies over time. The affected target will also explode dealing eve more damage to nearby enemies.
Another utility skill this build uses is Drain Power (Sap Essence). This causes damage to nearby enemies while healing your allies. The morph also improves your character’s damage output.
More life from your Elder Scrolls Online Weapons
Tanks that can heal themselves is a common trend. This build is no different using Blood Altar (Overflowing Altar) to improve health regen using enemy corpses. Allies can even heal themselves by using the ability’s synergy.
For the second bar’s ultimate, go with Soul Shred (Soul Tether). This is an AoE life-tap ability ensuring that you and your allies stay alive.
