it is understandable that you will not have all of these skills & passives opened as you level...these are the goals to be able to base DPS.  Some skills can be swapped out for damage skills if you are soloing.  Open your passives as you can.  Get your guilds and undaunted lines opened as soon as you can to get your Orb and other guild skills for later on.

The Nightblade is a very strong and powerful DPS class.  Nightblades can use stealth and quick damage attacks, or siphon the life of of an enemy and restore their own health and resources.  With multiple burst abilities, DoTs, and an strong execute skill, they can be very strong in most aspects of play. 

With this build there are 2 directions you can go.  Vampire, or Standard.  The posted build is standard, however the only change with the Vampire is your spammable.  This would swap from Swallow Soul to Arterial Burst
