In an earlier guide we showed you what to put on the Primary Skill bar of your Shadowscale Nightblade. Here in the second part of our guide for this build for new and veteran ESO account holders, we will take a look at the skills for the Secondary skill bar. You will need a bow for this bar.
Taking out lone targets on your ESO Account
The bow is an excellent weapon for assassins. It is silent and has incredible range. Most important of all, it can be loaded with poison thanks to the Poison Arrow (Venom Arrow) skill. Elder Scrolls Online account holders need this skill to damage enemies over time and prevent them from casting spells. Note that the morph also causes targets to be become off-balance and stunned.
To maximize your bow attacks, Snipe (Focused Aim) is also taken. This allows you to deal devastating damage to a target. It also marks them so succeeding bow attacks can be done from farther away. The morph also makes it so the target’s armor is reduced.
Ranged AoE on your ESO Account
One of the more popular skills for bow users, Volley (Scorched Earth) makes its way into the skill bar of your Shadowscale. This skill is useful for dealing and maintaining damage on an area. The skill will cause arrows to fall on a target location for five seconds. The morph adds six seconds of flame AoE damage once the arrow volley finishes. This effectively allows TESO account holders to deny an area for 11 seconds.
Another great AoE skill to use is Drain Power (Power Extraction). This will deal magic damage to nearby enemies. The morph also causes the skill to increase Weapon Damage if you hit enemies with the ability.
Recovering health on your ESO Account
Even with its stealth and ranged attacks, your Shadowscale Nightblade will still get damage. For times you need to restore health, Strife (Funnel Health) will be your first option. This will siphon life from a target and heal you and two allies. The amount restored is based on a percentage of the damage dealt.
Your second source of health during a fight is the ultimate Soul Shred (Soul Tether). When used, this will stun and deal magic damage to nearby enemies. It will also restore health to your character while the enemies are in the skill’s area of effect.
