This build was in the category good before being archived.

This build is designed for high damage hit-and-run maneuvers, found especially in PvP aspects of the game. Similar to a Falling Shocker Assassin, this build is able to deal much higher DPS than its predecessor, as well as providing condition and hex removal through the use of two enchantments and the skill Contemplation of Purity. Sacrificing the near-guaranteed Knockdown and a slightly slower combo, this build does not have to deal with large amounts of Exhaustion, as well as gaining the benefits listed above. Plus, you would no longer have to deal with the awkward double-click removal of Aura of Displacement.
