In part one of our guide for the Shadow Striker build, we went over the skills for the primary skill bar. Here in the second part of the guide we will cover the secondary bar. For this you will need a bow for your Nightblade. Get ready to hunt Elder Scrolls Online items from afar.
Support for those wearing Elder Scrolls Online armor
While the Shadow Striker build is all about using Elder Scrolls Online weapons to take out enemies from stealth, it doesn’t mean it can’t help its teammates. Through the Summon Shade (Dark Shades) skill it can do so, somewhat. This skill summons two clones of your character that will attack your enemies. They place Minor Maim on their targets causing them to deal 15% less damage. This can make it easier for healers to heal through attacks your tank takes.
For support skills for your Nightblade, Grim Focus (Relentless Focus) is taken. This allows your character to not only fire a shot that debilitates a target, but also to have a way to improve its stamina regen. More stamina of course means more skills to use for more damage.
Using your Elder Scrolls Online weapons to the fullest
Any good bow user will have Snipe (Focused Aim) in their skill bar and this Shadow Striker build definitely has it. Thanks to this skill the Shadow Striker and other bow users can hit a marked enemy from farther away. It also reduces the Elder Scrolls Online armor of the target.
If you’re dealing with more than one target, then Arrow Spray (Bombard) is used. This is an effective skill as not it only damages enemies in front of your character, it also stops them in their tracks. Even when the immobilize effect ends, they will still be slowed for a few seconds.
Vampire skills and Elder Scrolls Online armor
Vampires are known as creatures of the night and shadows. As such, it is only apt that this build has a few Vampire skills. First is Mist Form (Elusive Mist) that allows your character to receive no damage from AoE effects. Next is the ultimate Bat Swarm (Clouding Swarm)a. Not only does this deal damage to enemies closeby, the morph also makes your character invisible.
