Meet Xena and Gabrielle l’Egerdemain: Wood Elf Nightblades both. My lovely wife is playing Gabrielle as a straight up Nightblade, single-target DPS with sneaking and critical attacks, and ranged options from her bow (taking advantage of the Bosmer racial abilities there.) Primary weapon bar is her Bow, secondary TBD but probably dual wielding daggers. 5 medium and 2 light for armor.
I am playing Xena l’Egerdemain as a Nightblade tank in the Shadowknight mold, 5 heavy and 2 light armor pieces, with a primary weapon bar using One-handed and Shield, secondary will probably be Two-handed for some real laying-about, ass-whupping action.
And yes, this means we finally rolled toons for the Aldmeri Dominion! We’d been holding off on this alliance, saving AD for when the console version came out. But that started to seem silly; they are hard at work on the console version, but it’s still going to be later in 2015 before we see it. Plus, so many other changes in the game are coming down the track, it seems silly to hold off on playing AD at all with the idea that we want to keep that experience for console only; it’ll be very replayable come console-time, we’re not worried about that at all, so why wait?
