Liko's Stamina Nightblade DPS Build (105k+, Markarth)

With the help of ESOU Professor Rosskag, Professor Liko two ways to play Stamina Nightblade PvE DPS for the Markarth patch!

Introduction

Liko with the help of Rosskag goes over two different ways to carry out Stamina Nightblade PvE DPS'ing in the video below. Make sure to support Liko at his Patreon! And check out his website, Liko.gg, a friend of the ESO University website!

Rotation(s)

Both rotations shown are ~10 seconds long, due to many of the skills matching this duration.

Incap Strike should be used in a timely fashion, to provide you with the maximum burst. To make the most of it, usually, it will be one of the first skill to be used on your front bar. Then follow it up with re-application of your Rending and Soul Trap as soon as possible, if you haven't already, and also fit in as much Surprise Attack and Bow Procs as you can.

For Maarselok, you will need to Bash once every 7 or more seconds to proc its effect.

In short fights, aim to have DOTs (and relentless focus with 5x stacks, for the new crit damage buff) running one last time, before spamming Killer's Blade until the end.
