Thief WvW Tank build

Post by Santus on Sun Mar 17, 2013 2:07 am

After 4 months of wvw, this is the strogest build I can imagine on a thief to be useful to the rest of the team. It's very different from the usual theif builds.

Traits:

Deadly Arts 0
Critical Strikes 30: Keen Observed, Practiced Tolerance, Opportunist, Furious Retaliation, First Strikes, Executioner
Shadow Arts 0
Acrobatics 25: Expeditious Dodger, Vigorous Recovery, Feline Grace, Assassin's Reward, Fluid Strikes
Trickery 15: Kleptomaniac, Thrill of The Crime, Preparedness

Skill:

Healing: Withdraw
Caltrops or Smoke Screen (your choice, I prefer caltrops)
Shadow Refuge
Signet of Shadows
Dagger Storm

Equipment:

Full set Power + Toughness + Vitality
5 runes of the soldier + 1 rune of the dolyak

Weapons:

Shortbow Power + Toughness + Healing Power with Sigil of Superior Fire
Main hand: Sword/Dagger/Pistol Power + Toughness + Healing Power (I suggest sword for shadowstep and stun, more useful in our team) with Superior Sigil of Hydromancy
Offhand: Pistol Power + Toughness + Helaing power (for skill 5 Black Powder, awesome for stomping) with Superior Sigil of Accuracy

Jewelries:

Full Sapphire Orichalcum of The Cleric

This build drops stealth and critical chance to have more toughness. A thief hiding in shadows is not useful for the team. A dead theif isn't useful at all. So how are you going to play this kind of Thief? Aoe spamming! Dodge roll in the middle of enemy group, use Caltrops and spam Cluster Bomb at your feet with the shortbow. When you are low on Initiative switch to Sword (freezing enemies) and use Dagger Storm. Coordinate with team for insane aoe damage!

Click here for the Build >>> Missing consumables at the moment. Note, Dolyak rune can actually be swapped for a cheaper one like Engineer or Svanir if you're poor. Wink
