Hey ESO fans, today ZeniMax published the baseline Update 6 Patch Notes, which are a truly massive collection of changes. In this article, @Xaraan continues a series of discussions that examine the potential impact of 1.6 changes on gameplay. Here we will focus on the Nightblade class, which received several skill changes and even the addition of a new skill. The list of Nightblade changes are as follows:
The biggest difference you’ll see here is the addition of a brand new skill: Grim Focus. This will replace the often complained out Haste. Though some will miss the stamina regeneration bonus from Haste, with siphoning strikes still available from the siphoning tree and the passive bonus from the Refreshing Shadows passive, Haste wasn’t always worthwhile enough for a spot on the bar. Grim Focus however will provide an increase to light and heavy attack damage for the duration and charge up a magical power attack you can choose to fire when ready. The big question here will be how worthwhile the magical attack is for stamina based Nightblades if it scales off of spell power and spell crit.
