Yeah, more RNG. But, on average it's more effective because it causes all effects (not only the damage) to miss. Depends on playstyle choice though, for sure it's greater risk.. I guess I'm okay with that. XD
ps- Do you (or anyone) know if you can dodge an AOE in ESO?
I like RNG... dodge crit FTW! Here's a solid single-target build with both!
Khajiit – NB – Heavy – DW + S&S
DW- Teleport Strike + Flurry spam = single target death with Assassin's Blade finisher.
15% incrs damage against stunned targets. 5% crit chance from Dagger in Offhand. Crit rating and extra crit damage from being Khajiit. 15% crit chance from 5 (x3%) Assassination abilities slotted. 20% extra damage on targets under 25%..
5% base crit chance + 20% + racial and crits doing +30% (on top of regular crit bonus) damage = huge hits all day.
Blur – M[*]
Haste – M[*]
Teleport Strike – M[*]
Flurry – S[*]
Assassin's Blade – M[*]
Death Stroke – U[/list]
S&S- Summon Shade not only helps tank things but increases stamina regen on top of the weaken. Strife for a small HOT. Blur/Immovable for passive dmg reduction. Defensive Posture for the active and small passive block bonus.
Blur – M[*]
Immovable – S[*]
Defensive Posture – S[*]
Strife – M[*]
Summon Shade – M[*]
Consuming Darkness – U[/list]
I know the S&S bar sucks compared to a DK or even a Temp S&S build, and there's no AOE anywhere, but I think it's a very strong single-target build for sure.
No I don't know if you can dodge AoE's.
As a Tank I prefer a constant dmg reduction.
You never know if you don't be unlucky and all the big hit's gain through and it's easier for the healer to heal you constantly for a small amount than suddenly for a big one.
Yeah a DK might be the more tanky one but therefore your NB has more crit than a DK could get.
