Nightblade tank skills.jpg

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 Tank.  Some skills can be swapped out for damage skills if you are soloing or leveling specific lines.  Open your passives as you can.  Get your undaunted line opened as soon as you can to get your inner Rage as it is a primary ranged taunt for tanking.

The Nightblade tank is not the most popular or requested tank in ESO.  They are a lot of fun and have some good self healing and abilities to keep themselves alive, they can stack health very high and keep their incoming damage at a minimum. The downfall is they don't bring much to the group and their resource usage can be quite high.  Overall they are an enjoyable class, but not the most preferred over other tanks

Trial Tank

There are many different trial builds when it comes to end game.  At this time, this build is focused on normal trials and not as much Vet Hard Mode.  I have posted what have felt is an optimal build for me and have completed majority of the trials with this build.  There may be situations where you swap out set pieces and you should do that, but this post is an overall tank build that will handle many if not most situations.
