Description and use
The Nightblade is a algamation of mage and thief. In battle they tend to use destruction magic to weaken their foes with spells such as drain health or damage armor, afterwords dispatching the enemy quickly.
They use their speed and skill in tandem magic to reach places others cannot go. The Nightblade serves as an effective killer using mobility and light armor to pursue their prey. They are among the fastest classes.
They usualy use short blades and possibly bows if deemed necessary, this makes them a very versatile class, as they can avoid combat entirely, engage with a short blade in close combat, weaken the opponent using destruction and accurate marksmanship.
Overall the effevtivness of the class has been reduced, nightblades were originaly famous for their use of illusion and mysticism magics as well. If one was to make a Nightbladeesque class the primary focus should probably be: illusion, mysticism, sneak, alteration, blade, light armor and, destruction.
