The Ever Scion
Magicka Nightblade Stage 4 Vampire PvE & PvP
Welcome to the Ever Scion. The build were you can pull your vampire ultimate in your rotation. The Swarming Scion vampire is really strong ultimate. You get:
Max health which means it can be used as an oh s**t button.
10000 Stamina, Magicaka and Health which increases your damage and survivability. (Get for the changes to proc sets if you want to use them)
An area of effect damage ability that scales off spell damage
A buff that heals for 15% of damage done.
These bonuses make the ultimate one of the strongest in the game and to have that on a 15 second cool down is what makes this build very very strong. IMax buffed you get 50k magicka, 45k Max health and 25k Stamina. Combined with Nightblade skills you have a strong build for both PvP and PvE.
In order to get the ultimate charge done right you need to make sure you time your potion use and also use it on the right bar, I have the Arkasis Genius on the front bar so I pop a potion and get 64 ultimate. The next 100 Ultimate I get from using Exhilarating Drain. 3 drains should be enough to get the Ultimate you need and it should be up in 15 seconds. Pop your Ultimate and that lasts 20 seconds. You can then start the rotation again once this ends using the potion.

We not only need stage 4 vampire to reduce the ultimate cost but we also need to use this set to reduce the cost down even further. Just be warned that with the cost reduction you'll take more fire damage,
You do get super cheap Vampire abilities so make sure you use them too.
Name: Arkasis’s Genius
Location: Stone Garden
Requires DLC: Stonethorn
Gaining 44 Ultimate every 30 seconds from potions is great for this build but you'll need to bring down the potion use time which is why you'll need to enchant your rings and necklace with potion reduction enchant. 3 enchants are enough to bring it down. There's no need to infuse the enchantments as it will reduce the potion cost too much.
Name: Blessing of the Potentates
Location: Cyrodiil, Vlastarus Elite Gear Vendor
I've put this on the back bar so you get reduced damage while you're gaining Ultimate in PvP. Swarming Scion on the back bar means the cost is 15% cheaper with this set, The reduction means that it costs 164 Ultimate to cast.

Requires DLC: Blackwood
This a new Myhics coming out with Blackwood. It's a really strong choice for this build not only do we get reduced ultimate charge but the the increased stats during ultimate which means that it's not 10k ultimate you get 11716 increased stats.
