What I hope is a dumb question

I have been playing ESO for a while now with magic based characters.  I decided to make a stamina based nightblade. However when I try to make a character the skills are magic based.  Am I just stupid or what am I missing.

    Most skills can be morphed into stamina ones, but not all.

    It might be a good idea to look at a guide, even if just to know which skills have a stamina option, so you can plan out your choices in advance.

    Dottz Gaming has some good information on that. It isn't a specific build so much as guide that gives you details on available options.

    ESO was originally designed will all class skills and all their morphs being magicka abilities and all weapon skills except for staves being stamina. Stamina builds in the first couple of years were pretty underwhelming compared to the magicka builds. 

    They didn't start adding stamina morphs of class abilities until much later and not all class abilities have stamina morphs, but the more important ones usually do.

    The in-game build adviser does a fairly good job of telling you what to use and what to morph things to if you click on the gear icon and choose the "stamina dps" build.

    But yeah, class abilities will be magicka at first and it isn't until you morph them that your build starts being all stamina. Depending on the ability, some of that can be done as early as level 5 and some take a lot longer to unlock and morph. Because of that a lot of players playing stamina builds will have some magicka skills slotted that they don't use at all just waiting for them to level-up so they can be morphed into the stamina version well into their mid 20s to early 30s.

    Yep. Personally I find this feature to be one of the fundamental flaws of the core game design, that sadly will probably never be properly balanced nor "fixed". Which itself is a victim of the excremental, rock paper scissors, Stamina/Heath/Magica system.

    Man bursts into tears. ''But doctor,... '' he says. ''l am Pagliacci.'' Good joke. Everybody laugh. Roll on snare drum. . .Curtains."
