  • Values listed are at Legendary Champion 160
  • This set is bind-on-equip
  • This set has Weapons of every type
  • Also has light pieces (Murk-Watcher's Greaves etc.)
  • This set's bonuses work well for being a PvP guerilla, or for solo Stamina play.  Unfortunately, this is also a very defensive Stamina set, so you're missing out on the sheer power that other Stamina sets give.  Night Mother's Embrace from Deshaan is considered a direct upgrade to this set in most ways, as you trade the Health bonus and Poison spike in for more Stamina, and you also get more Weapon Damage, while still keeping the Sneak bonuses.

      Hey I just found a Necklace in this set called the Carved Bone Medallion - there is a little quest about freeing skulls in Stormhaven

        Since the sneak bonus is on the 3 piece... it is, combined with jewelry, the only somewhat reasonable way to get this bonus on a mage... for thief's guild, dark brotherhood etc.

          The 3 piece on this set is pretty much useless for any who's not a nb but even as a nb your goal is to burst them down before they can even get a hit on you so that makes the 5 piece useless for them

            Just got a Restoration Staff of Night Terror (from master chest). Guess we got that one in the set as well.

              Paired with Thunderbug, this makes for a nice passive defense and a big surprise for anyone who tries to melee you.
