ABILITIES - FRONT BAR

Poison Injection.png

This applies a strong poison damage over time effect to the enemy that increases in damage by 100% if they are below 50% health.

Camouflaged Hunter.png

This passively buffs you with Major Savagery, but you already have this buff from Biting Jabs.  You are using this ability for its passive effect of buffing you with Minor Berserk when you land a critical strike from an enemies flank, increasing your damage by 8%.  It also increases your weapon damage by 3% from the Fighter's Guild passive: Slayer.

Lethal Arrow.png

This is your long range snipe and primary spammable.  It also applies Minor Defile reducing the targets healing by 15%

Nightblade Skill Tree

Assassination 

Once activated, every light and heavy attack will add a stack to a maximum of 5 stacks.  Each stack increases weapon and spell damage by 60 (300 total at 5 stacks).  At 5 stacks, this will convert into a new ability, Assassin's Scourge.  This will allow you to use the ability again for huge burst damage and healing you for 33% of the damage done if the enemy is nearby.

Shadowy Disguise.png

This turns you invisible for 3 seconds, causes your next attack to be a critical strike, and refreshes your vampire passive once you leave stealth(Strike from the Shadows).

Toxic Barrage.png

Your "I Win Button."  This pumps out MASSIVE poison damage over 4 seconds and leaves a strong damage over time effect on the target.

ABILITIES - BACK BAR

Concealed Weapon.png

This is slotted only for its passive, making you move 25% faster while in stealth.  This coupled with Ring of the Wild Hunt makes you VERY fast in stealth.

Rally.png

Weapon Ability

Two Handed

This buffs you with Major Brutality and Minor Endurance increasing your weapon damage by 20% and your stamina recovery by 10%.  It also heals you when it ends or is re-casted.  The longer it is active, the larger the heal will be.

Leeching Strikes.png

This causes your right and heavy attacks to heal you and restore stamina.  It also restores additional stamina when the effect ends.

Resolving Vigor.png

A strong heal over time for yourself.

Channeled Acceleration.png

This buffs you with Major Expedition and Minor Force, increasing your movement speed by 30% for 12 seconds and increased critical damage by 10% for 36 seconds.

The other morph, Race Against Time, is also a fantastic choice.  It's duration is shorter but it is an instant cast (versus Channeled Accelerations 1.3s cast time), it breaks you out of snares and immobilizations, and grants you immunity to them for 2 seconds.   

Temporal Guard.png

This causes you to rewind time for 4 seconds resetting your health, magicka, and stamina to where you were 4 seconds prior.  It also reduces damage taken by 8% passively while slotted.
