The Locus build maximizes every attainable weapon damage available to hit like an absolute truck, both in Cyrodiil PvP and Battlegrounds. Using sets that aren’t even too particularly difficult to acquire, the Locus Stamina Nightblade PvP build is 100% worth giving a shot, plus it feels pretty good to embarrass your enemies.

Race:

  • Wood Elf: 

Mundus Stone:

  • The Warrior

Sets:

  • New Moon Acolyte:
    • New Moon is a new set that just stacks damage and penetration to insane levels, and makes you hit your enemies harder than almost any other set
  • Bone Pirate’s Tatters:
    • This is the set that allows you to roll dodge and attack non-stop with ferocity. It’s a must have for builds that need that boost of stamina
  • Molag Kena’s:
    • Molag Kena recently got a huge buff, making it so you can go into SUPER SLAUGHTER MODE with only an 8% increase to resource usage rather than 20%. Hands down a must have for this death machine
  • (If Owned) Master’s Bow
    • Whenever you run with a bow, having a Master’s in PvP is practically unmatched. The damage output with Poison injection is extremely potent

Set Side Notes:

  • The Master’s bow can be replaced with any of the three bows as they do the same thing: Battlefield Acrobat, Senche’s Bite, and Daring Corsair. Make sure you keep the TRAIT and the ENCHANT the same, as the point of the bow is stamina recovery, which is very useful to the build, and the Master’s Bow is not currently obtainable.

Spell Resistance: 12354-17634

Physical Resistance: 12096-17376

Critical Resistance: 2660

Physical Penetration: 6955

Technique:

Use heavy or light attacks to charge up Relentless Focus, preferably heavy attacks and make sure you have Incapacitating Strikes ready, when you have 5 stacks, light attack twice in a row then poison injection to get that 301 weapon damage added from Master’s Bow and Berserker Enchant (remember to light attack weave), then charge on the target, Use Incapacitating Strikes and follow up with Relentless Focus spectral bow proc, if enemy does survive with little health, follow up with Surprise Attacks and if target lives still, repeat the combo.

Conclusion:

This build is bit faster than your usual fighter however little bit more squishy but that is why this build utilizes dodge rolls to mitigate damage and since the build has high stamina recovery it can dodge roll a lot, the damage from this build is very high and in group play can easily assist the key targets such as healers or solo most targets.
