Heads up for those who play Night Blades

Does your character feel some what underpowered or not seeing the statistical increases from skills?

Well, many of the skills within the class are bugged. 

 

1: Teleport Strike: Often when using this ability character will preform the animation, but will not teleport to the target. This may seem minor, but this will effectively drop you out of stealth and break invisibility. Same can be said of the Ambush morph and apparently the snare on the Lotus Fan morph is not working.

 

2: Mark Target: NO damage increase on it or any of it's morphs. All other functions seem to work fine for it and both morphs.

 

3: Haste: This skill is not increasing light or heavy attack speed when used with a bow. 

 

4: Pressure Points passive: http://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/discussion/72460/nightblade-pressure-points-not-working#latest

 

6: Shadowy Disguise: Only applies bonus to weapon critical. Tooltip doesn't specify that it's weapon only.

 

7: Veiled Strike: Occasionally suffer from the same issue as Teleport stike.

 

8: Leeching Strikes: http://forums.elderscrollsonline.com/discussion/73608/leeching-strikes-broken-bug#latest

 

Just giving you all more heads up of what I and every other Night Blade have experienced within the game.

    Just giving you all more heads up of what I and every other Night Blade have experienced within the game.

    For patch 1.2, we are looking especially at helping to add flexibility to builds with some buffs to the lesser used abilities. For the nightblade, this includes abilities such as Master Assassin, Path of Darkness, Incapacitate, and more.

    Let's hope they have some fixes in there too.

    Having a refund doesn't mean I'm not able to give out knowledge of what players have experienced in game with the classes. Especially for the class that I know isn't working.

    When I read the 1.1 patch notes I honestly saw nothing that'd fix these class abilities. However, they might have updated the list since then.

    Well, unless you can help me figure out why my 4400 wireless controller isn't acknowledging the network I've connected it to. I suppose I could be more productive that way. Otherwise I'm on my lunch break informing the good people on this forum of skills and abilities they might want to avoid in their current builds.

    My first character was a night blade and I used the skills mentioned. I have since deleted the character because something just felt off about the class for me. I was having a hard time beating mobs I could take down on any of my other classes. Seeing as I was using these skills that could explain a lot. Thanks for the heads up. Will have to see if they get some love and reroll one in the future.

    They don't care for the fact that I liked the game. They only care that I got a refund for the product after I deemed it broken.

    Yeah, could you imagine running around with Reaper's Mark and your opponent isn't affected by the debuff for -75% armour but you are? My night blade had 1017 armor and if I were to use that skill it'd drop my armor to ~250.

    I play NB and i noticed some of these issues in the past but since last patch they seemed to have stoped for the most part. RM does as intended now thankfully and TS now works all 300 test tries i did..not saying it will continue to work just letting you know the bugs are not as bad as they were. Where i do see a bug is in the animation for the bow if you hold and arrow waiting for a target the animation will reset to a rested position but if you let go to redaw the bow the arrow will magicly fire lol

    no..real mmo players defend the game but acknowledge the bugs and know the game is flawed, fan boys defend the mmo claiming its perfect. i love ESO but i know its bugged to all hell. every mmo was at launch some sadly still are.

    This must be exactly what the developers for Oculus Rift are thinking when Zenimax slammed them with a lawsuit.

    Nah, this guy just made a complete spectacle of himself in another thread, and it's hard to take it seriously when he comes in and cut-pastes (yet another) attack post on the game.  I play a nightblade, it's fun, I feel perfectly powerful.  It would be nice if the passive glitches got fixed, but quest bugs, progression-stopping things, bots / spam etc. are higher priority.  I'd expect to see this sort of background polishing to be started in the second round of work - and they've indicated exactly as much in their posts and discussions.

    Attack post?

    How is it an attack post?

    I'm warning those who are playing a Night Blade that there are issues with the class.

    Warn away, My best friend IRL loves his Night Blade and hasn't had a problem destroying mobs in PvE and PvP, even with the small glitches to passives and a few skills.

     

    I would take this entire thread with a grain of salt, of course they are going to fix the bugs with the class, just because it's not happening today doesn't mean someone shouldn't play a Nightblade and level it up if they want. It's an attack post because it takes the tone of the class being broken and non viable and that it won't be fixed in due time, when the class is perfectly viable and actually the strongest choice in a 1v1 encounter imo.

    My main is a nightblade, and it's been a lot of fun watching how powerful and flexible a character can get in this game.  I'm running with dual wield (mostly daggers) and bow.  You can sneak wonderfully well (there are a couple of abilities that stack, giving you good detection avoidance and fast stealthy movement); you can pull the classic rogue massive-damage-up-close move; there are combinations that give you solid self-healing (and damage over time on opponents); decent crowd control, etc.  The armor passives and set bonuses really stack up and even a medium armor setup (with leeches etc. running) can take a toe-to-toe beating.  It's a blast to play.
