Mug vs deadly ambition

Yes, as power builds, was wondering g what the added poison is like vs mug steal, lose healing from mug sure but the 2 second CD on DA trait does look nice, especially vs things like warriors

    The cd is 5 seconds in pvp/wvw, right? :p

    You could prob achieve the same thing through sigils by the way, sigil of blight gives you pretty good uptime by itself tbh. Just a thought :)

    If you're taking Sleight, I wouldn't swap Mug for anything especially when you're also taking Even the Odds. Just like Jugglemonkey.8741 said, you can get poison from somewhere else.

    Thief F1 must remain an instacast Steal skill. DE will simply apply DE Mark on target on Steal.
    Malice build-up independently from DE Mark. Mark only speed up the build-up, not be the pre-requisite.

    I'm curious, what about in PvP specifically?

    The poison duration and the ICD doesn't make it viable for a non-hybrid build. In PvE, you can easily extend the poison duration longer than the ICD, but in PvP, you'll ruin your build just to make this trait work. IMO, it's not worth it, just take Mug.
