The Elder Scrolls Online offers a class called “Nightblade” which is one of the first 4 classes, and available with all 3 factions. The Nightblade class is a combination of stealth, evoker, and alchemy. If you choose to play as the Nightblade, here is a guide to help with creating, skills, and leveling up.

Your first important choice when creating your player, is to choose the race that you want. Although this option is completely up to you, allow me to recommend a good race choice to accommodate your Nightblade character. A Dunmer, judging by the attributes that come along with this race, it will compliment your Nightblade greatly, which consists of light armory, mobility, stamina, blades and spells.

In The Elder Scrolls’ past, Dunmer have had bonuses attributes in light armor, illusion, and sneak, and these are great skills to prepare your stealthy Nightblade with. Of course you aren’t restricted to these skills alone, you can pick others you wish to add to your skills list, making your Nightblade something to fear.Another important thing you must remember is to choose your nightblade skills consciously. First when choosing a stealth oriented class, using light armor and weapons is a must, so shape skills around this fact. Sneak is going to be very significant with this class, especially in the shadows where you can take your victim down with one stab. You can also choose to level up Alchemy, Conjuration, and Mysticism skills, which will increase your magicka points, which are what produce spells. Another good strategy is to stick with certain spells and attacks, which will level them up quicker individually, than using several different actions.

Next, focus on how to accumulate experience points the quickest. Obviously in an MMO, the purpose is to kill enemies and finish quests and gain XP. Instead of slaughtering enemies that are under your level, go compete with enemies that are stronger than you in the gameplay, which will reward higher XP and items. Because a higher level opponent will be more difficult, fight smart. Fight from a distance, with a bow or spells, and also use your best friend; the shadows. Also do not forget that your surrounding terrain can assist when you might need to retreat and heal yourself. Also another way to earn XP is to finish side quests as they become available. Or joining a small party to help with a more larger quest, will also gain you more XP.

An MMO can always prove to be overwhelming and difficult in the beginning, but hopefully reading this guide ahead of time will make you more educated in a class you might want, and how to level up the quickest. You’ll find that learning the ropes was easier than expected.
