KROW.2673 Posted October 4, 2017 Share Posted October 4, 2017 Learning how to play Thief and what to focus on in terms of stats and whatnot. Deadeye had me all psyched to finally play a Shadowslinger but I can see that's what everyone else is doing so I figured not to bother with P/P for now (though it is super fun). I love Rifle, and figured having melee coverage if I'm exposed or compromised while in Rifle was smarter than spamming Unload and hootin' n' hollerin' down yonder.Here's the build: http://gw2skills.net/editor/?vZAQNAoaUnkFDNGjtFDOOB8PhFaCb7BMc2T8/yi5zULAMhiAA-jRCBABGt/QWKDC4QAwoSQsU6BwTAoS1fs4EAkn+gAAHAn38mfegzP/8zP/8m+8zP/8zP/8zP/8A-eI'm clearly going for that quick burst/one-shot potential (and I only PvE for the record). Not a fan of Scholar on Thief, we're so squishy you either live or die no in-between and damage below 90% health is on par with Rage while Rage provides more solid damage no matter the circumstance (and helps provide permanent Fury uptime for Might stacks and bonus damage from Rage). Went with Deadly Arts cuz of Expose Weakness and Executioner primarily. Not a fan of placing so much emphasis on the Mark, I'd rather focus more on my overall damage than on a single skill that's going to give you away anyways (still love the skill, just not gonna hyper-importance it). I also placed emphasis on the Revealed buffs from both Revealed Training and Revealed Malice for in case I'm either Revealed (duh) or if I fail to kill my target with Death's Judgement. Either way the two synergize nicely together and I find Iron Sights to be redundant considering how squishy we are to begin with. D/P is, sadly, meta (I personally hate running anything 'meta' as most know) but with Deadly Arts it's just stupid to not run it.Thoughts? Just looking for feedback/input. My primary concern is if I'm going to be 'too' squishy during end-game, but then again we're going to be stupid squishy no matter how much health you have as far as I see it. If D/P doesn't work out for me I'll probably flip the two instead. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
