Attributes and Skills

<pvxbig> [build prof=assas/warri dagger=12+1+3 deadly=6+1 shadow=6+1 critic=10+1][siphon speed][black lotus strike][Horns of the Ox][Falling Spider][Twisting Fangs][flourish@0][Shadow Refuge][resurrection signet][/build] </pvxbig>



  • Choose a target not in proximity of any allies, preferably overextended.
  • Cast Siphon Speed on the target.
  • Close in and use Black Lotus Strike, Horns of the Ox, Falling Spider and Twisting Fangs, in that order.
  • Use Flourish to recharge all your attacks. Flourish can also be used to restart the combo if disrupted or Diverted.
  • Ensure that your target is still hexed with Siphon Speed, and repeat the above combo. Casters who dont have any blocking/evasion skills should be dead by your second Falling Spider.
  • Use Shadow Refuge as a self heal.
  • To coordinate spike damage within a team, recharge all your skills using Flourish, but allow Flourish to recharge before spiking. This allows your combo to be completed twice in a row, with a one second pause.
  • Switch to your Vampiric Daggers when executing attack chain. If you begin to run low on energy switch to Zealous. When not fighting or attacking a foe with high physical resistance, switch to your Ebon Daggers.

Black Lotus Strike and Flourish should suffice in terms of energy management.
