I am presently shooting for this 231 point Nightblade build, and am looking for ways to tweak it.
I have 5pc Night’s Silence, and the rest Hunding’s Rage. My crafter is between 7-9 traits, so maybe I could try other sets. I like the speed bonus in stealth of Night’s Silence, so I want to keep that, but I am willing to swap in something else. My Jewelry crafter has a ways to go before he can make end game gear.
I really am enjoying legerdemain and Dark Brotherhood/Thieves’ guild.
My melee bar has dizzying swing, which I use to ground someone who is close or to open from stealth. I love Killer’s blade for finishing. I have been getting better at heavy weaving with it, and frequently I can stand toe to toe doing just that.
Shadowy Disguise is super fun. Great to dump adds when I have threat, and I can pop another with dizzying swing from invis. Took me a while to recognize I can just hit it immediately after gathering to gain invis long enough to transition into stealth, and move fast. This thing is great when I pull threat on dolmens, as I can just swap and go invis and let someone else eat threat for a bit.
I have been just using Concealed Weapon for passive stealth speed, but I am thinking maybe that is a better open than Dizzying Swing? I have been holding magicka for Shadowy Disguise.
The ultimate is Shooting Star. My open on a Delve boss goes: Leeching Strikes-swap-Forward Momentum-Shooting Star-swap-Endless Hail-Poison Injection-light-Acid Rain. This will load him up with a lot of dots and damage, and I can take it from there. If it sits there, it gets hammered by the Endless Hail and Shooting Star. If it chases, I can Shadowy Disguise and pummel with the other melee abilities, or kite with lightweaving and poison.
On the bow bar I have Soul Harvest. This is to generate ultimate while I kill adds with AOE skills. It also puts an assassination ability on the bow bar for those passives. I put on Camouflaged Hunter to get more crit rating with bow stuff. Seems to be fine. I suppose I can use it as a de-stealth.
The crafting load is there for hirelings and gathering. I tend to gather as I travel, as well as steal and loot.
Anyway where can this build get better?
