The first set we use in this build is Arkasis’s Genius. The reason for this is because we are layering the fact that we are Argonian and get the Resourceful which boosts the amount of resources gained from potions. We then have the Nightblade Catalyst passive which gives us 20 Ultimate each time we use a Potion which means if we also use Arkasis we gain 44 Ultimate for ourselves and our group members which just makes sense if we are already planning to use potions as often as possible. Just make sure only to drink potions on the back bar. We use Chest, Legs and Feet of Arkasis as they provide the highest armor value.
Next we use Powerful Assault. We want to optimise the best we can for the group and this is a great group buff, and the fact this is Medium Armor is important as we are going to be use 3 body pieces of PA to give us additional speed advantages from the Medium Armor passives.
The next set is Swarm Mother, we just use a 1 piece for the additional max stats but you could use any 1 piece set here such as Magma Incarnate for more recovery or different set for other stats. The reason we only have a 1 piece is because we use a Mythic item, but if you wanted you could use a full Monster Set if needed.
We use a Mythic item in this build which is the Ring of the Wild Hunt. The reason for this is we are pushing the sprint speed cap so we can be rapidly moving through content to get ahead of our group to control the adds and stack enemies. You could also use the Death Dealer Fete or Spaulder of Ruin in place of this if you want.
Finally we use the Void Bash set. This is vital for adds because the Nightblade is not strong at dealing with add pulls because their only pull skill is Silver Leash which is an expensive Stamina skill so chaining 8 enemies can be very tricky on sustain without Void Bash. When it comes to boss fights you can switch this out for the Master Weapons since they will offer more benefit.
