I started playing ESO about 4 years ago and rolled with a Breton nightblade. I love rogue-ish types of characters, human/elvish races, knives and bows. Despite a Breton being far from ideal, I stuck with it and experienced the entire storyline so far with one and the same guy. I don't plan on creating a new character.
With that out of the way, I've started improving my stamblade (I can sense the downvotes coming) Breton for the past year and got quite good with him (I play mostly PVE, more than often solo). But I want to do even better. I don't care about min/max, but I just want to be able to do more damage and stay alive.
After following many builds (such as from Alcast), I keep going back to using DW/Bow, mostly because I've gotten so used to it. Are there any builds that are suitable for a Breton stamblade with DW/Bow? I might even settle for a 2H/Bow (or anything/Bow), but would love to remain DW/Bow if possible.
For those who are wondering: I have tried a race change a few times. Imperial, Khajiit, … But somehow I felt weaker and died so much quicker than on my Breton. It didn't take long to race change back (hooray for those free tokens we got a long time ago!)
I have considered switching to magblade, but then I'd feel less like the classic fantasy rogue. I did collect various gear suitable for a magblade, but decided not to change (at the time). If there's a way to play a magblade with melee/bow (and not suck), I'd be happy to know and try it out.
As of now my build is like this:

Bow back bar: Echoing Vigor, Relentless Focus, Leeching Strikes, Endless Hail, Lethal Arrow, Flawless Danwbreaker (ultimate)
Other passive skills that matter in a build (I won't mention other skills that shouldn't influence my build): all assassination, all shadow, siphoning (soul siphoner, catalyst), all dual wield, all bow, all medium armor, heavy armor (constitution, juggernaut), all fighter's guild, all undaunted, all breton skills
I'm pretty sure there's something that can be done to be better, so any constructive criticism/help is welcome. If there's no way to improve, I might eventually try out magblade.
