Don't know if you guys accept EoTN builds yet, its the preview weekend, so move this back to trials if you want to wait for the full release. --Hikari 10:57, 24 August 2007 (CEST)

Don't think it's in a policy, but I would move it to Trials all the same. Tycn 14:00, 24 August 2007 (CEST)

Wtf? — Rapta Rapta Icon1 (talk|contribs) 16:52, 24 August 2007 (CEST)

Double horns is nasty, but I say it's redundant, also the way I have the combo set up right now, all 4 skills are on an 8 second recharge timer, so I like the synergy =P --Hikari 21:24, 24 August 2007 (CEST)

This is actually really really good. We messed it round with our guild (me and frv) and I think this is the best thing you can do with the idea. Signet of DisruptionRawrawr Dinosaur \m/ 03:46, 25 August 2007 (CEST)

Highly recommend falling lotus though, with it you can easily pull off a combo every 8 seconds (which is one of the major advantages along with not requiring a hex) Signet of DisruptionRawrawr Dinosaur \m/ 04:02, 25 August 2007 (CEST)

It's alright =P, I didn't have any energy issues with +5 Energy daggers and radiants, but if you like Falling Lotus, then I'll slap it under the bar. --Hikari 04:42, 25 August 2007 (CEST)

Another addition is that this works even if get RCed after GPS. Read Trampling Ox talk page. --User Frvwfr2 signature frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 05:20, 25 August 2007 (CEST)

Builds featuring GW:EN skills should remain in the Trial Stage, and should not be voted upon, until the finalization of those skills. Defiant Elements Sig Test 2 *Defiant Elements* +talk 07:24, 27 August 2007 (CEST)

Which is now. I'll move to testing. —ǥrɩɳsɧƿoɲŞƳŞŌƤ 05:25, 1 September 2007 (CEST)

in the AB variants, i'd suggest a lead attack followed by Jungle Strike instead of Golden Phoenix Strike. This would allow for more damage and the basic combo could still be executed even without Grenth's Grasp. Golden Lotus Strike could be an OK lead, making up for the additional skill in the chain with more e management. --Kyrax 19:21, 6 September 2007 (CEST)

Bring a shadowstep please.--Relyk 22:55, 11 January 2008 (EST)

Dual Attack

I think Critical Strike could go well there. It gives you E-Management to use the combo every 8 secs, so it's less spike but more pressure. What do you think? ~~ User Frvwfr2 signature frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 16:33, 8 September 2007 (CEST)

Just grab falling lotus as the second offhand. –Ichigo724Ichigo-signature 19:54, 8 September 2007 (CEST)
But then 12 sec recharge, which messes me up sometimes when I try to do my chain, but don't have a Falling recharged... ~~ User Frvwfr2 signature frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 20:07, 8 September 2007 (CEST)
When I run this, I use:
Grenth's Grasp Guiding Hands Whirling Charge Golden Phoenix Strike Trampling Ox Falling Lotus Strike Twisting Fangs Resurrection Signet
It means you can spike every 15 seconds, but inbetween each spike you can have a 'mini spike' of Phoenix>Tramping. I found that more than quick enough for RA and TA. Ibreaktoilets SignatureIbreaktoilets 20:22, 8 September 2007 (CEST)

Fully maintable move speed is nice... especially when your only enchant(unless your aegised or somesuch) is a 5 recharge.Darksig 19:00, 12 September 2007 (CEST)
Grenths Grasp is a 10sec recharge, and pious is perty energy heavy. --Hikari 05:50, 16 September 2007 (CEST)

Falling Lotus should replace Falling Spider for sure. I run full radiants and I still run out of energy, especially if I fail a spike and need to refresh Grenth's Grasp. The biggest energy killer here is Whirling Charge tbh; I wish there was a less expensive IAS boost. I was also thinking maybe just removing it for DC or something of the sort cause I hate builds that don't shadowstep (OH HEY A SIN IS RUNNING AT ME! LOL PREKITE!). Yea Whirling Charge shores it up a bit, but like I said, it hurts the energy. Yesmilord 10:00, 24 September 2007 (CEST)

Golden fang strike > Impale?

Golden fang strike seems to be bugged right now - it can be used anytime (with or without a lead) and still cause the deep wound....if it's used without a lead attack it recharges instantly too. It ALWAYS causes the deep wound as long as you're enchanted.....whether you're blinded, or it's blocked, etc, they'll get the DW. You can do your chain normally and use it after Blades of steel. I prefer it over Impale since you don't need to put any points in Deadly arts and it recharges instantly so your whole attack chain recharges in 8 secs. And of course if the deep wound is removed, you can reapply it instantly. P A R A S I T I C 02:17, 29 September 2007 (CEST)

Intersting bug, but no. Impale has a 1/4th activation time and doesn't require melee, this build doesn't have room for an enchantment really either. --Hikari 04:40, 29 September 2007 (CEST)

It already has one. –Ichigo724Ichigo-signature 04:52, 29 September 2007 (CEST)
That made me laugh. P A R A S I T I C 05:09, 29 September 2007 (CEST)

...I feel like a TOTAL idiot...I thought I was talking on the SP Sin page. --Hikari 06:09, 29 September 2007 (CEST)

I still love SP Sins more.

I thought about this skill for the build earlier. Impale is 1 sec activation now, so it's not faster than an attack with 25% IAS. You would have the Deep Wound with EVERY attack chain, depending on energy, by taking Golden Fang Strike. Zuranthium 11:12, 19 February 2008 (EST)

My AB version

<pvxbig> [build prof=A/D dag=11+1 cri=10+2 win=10][Golden Lotus Strike][Jungle Strike][Trampling Ox][Falling Spider][Twisting Fangs][Featherfoot Grace][Grenth's Grasp][Natural Healing][/build] </pvxbig>

I subbed out pheonix for GLS(energy for GG and the attack + w/e crit energy you get)and JS (faux-IAS) and then TFs for DW and Bleeding (I don't like impale XD).

Featherfoot Grace seems to be a very good IRS and good at reducing conditions, as well at the +113 health from Natural Healing. I like this version a lot more, cause you only need a min energy of 9 to do it (GG is 5 and the pips of energy regen give you 5 +11 from GLS and any crits, that's enough to do all the way to falling spider, after that TFs is only 1-3 second wait, depending on your Crit. energy back during the combo.DSL 01:17, 31 October 2007 (CET)

Golden Phoenix Strike Trampling Ox Falling Spider Blades of Steel Impale Resurrection Signet Grenth&#039;s Grasp Harrier&#039;s Haste

That's the build I'm having fun with in RA/TA every now and then, just thought I'll post it here. Almost the frontpage version with some slight adjustments. I'm using Dagger Mastery 10+1+1 and Deadly Arts 6 which gives a much better Impale. It lacks an IAS which doesn't hurt the spike too much but is annoying if you have a Ranger sitting on you interrupting your combo. Harrier's Haste doesn't burn up your energy like Whirling Charge does and it usually triggers on GPS, the first Ox and 1-2 times on BoS, giving you some nice additional damage. The better e-management really pays off imho, I'm running full survivor/nightstalker's insignia (depending on mood) and usually have enough energy to spike as soon as GPS is recharged, so with some skill in target selection (low health opponents when impale is recharging, monks/full health foes with impale ready) it basically comes down to a dead guy every 8-10 seconds; this build's ability to crush through any team without excessive blocking skills is really scary. --Makku 15:22, 1 November 2007 (CET)

Replace the twisting fangs with Death Blossom since it has a quicker recharge, and conditions wont be needed since the target is essentialy already dead, and the added bonus dammage will finish him off (most of the time)

Pious Assault

Instead of impale, it would remove Grenths Grasp, but foe would still be crippled and you can re-apply if needed; probably won't need to with 1/2 dmg + deepwound.- [[Image:Darkjakjak 2.jpg|19px[[User:Jak123X|<font color=red>'''Jak123X'''</font>]]]] 00:51, 25 January 2008 (EST)

That's a terrible alternative. This builds strength comes from 8 second recharge chain. Energy is tough enough as it is. -Shen 16:14, 25 January 2008 (EST)
That would also have same recharge, but shorter recharge DW... 15s Impale is 8? ~~ User Frvwfr2 signature frvwfr2 (T/C/Sysop) 16:17, 25 January 2008 (EST)
It's 12 second recharge spike chainas opposed to 8 seconds for this version. And you'd need to reapply GG every time you want to spike. You trade 8 seconds spike, with DW every 2 spikes, for a 12 second spike. That's a huge difference, and the reason I'm with the 8 seconds spike is should the spike fail, it's only 8 seconds. -Shen 16:21, 25 January 2008 (EST)

Shadow Steps

"I dont use DW". You made me lol irl. That's uncommon tbh. You need DW or you're pretty frecked. Also dropping WC for RA/TA is bad, bc you want the IAS/IMS. Swiftslash \\ Impale (contributions *sandbox) 15:47, 27 January 2008 (EST)
Well, tbh, i dont use DW b/c it makes me put points into deadly arts, for impale, or into scythe mastery, for pious assault. I agree that it makes the target that much easier to kill, but I prefer the up to 160+ damage of Blades of Steel (with double strike) and a shadow step. Some people run it with Twisting Fangs, but i just dont. And dropping WC isnt that bad, cause it costs 10 energy, and only lasts 9 seconds. A rez sig is better cause it can rez your monk, your nuker, or others. Sometimes, i just do RA without a rezsig, but usually, i bring rez. I Am Jebus 16:38, 27 January 2008 (EST)

Ressig is a must for RA. More than a self heal or a shadowstep. Also you don't need to invest much into scythe nor deadly for Pious/Impale to work well. It's for spikes anyways. Swiftslash \\ Impale (contributions *sandbox) 16:40, 27 January 2008 (EST)

Maybe Trampling Ox nerf?

The first comment, made by Hikari, says that Trampling could be nerfed. How, in any way, could they nerf this effectively? Only effective nerfs for this that i see is extending recharge or switching the Crippled requirement to DW or sumthing. I Am Jebus 22:10, 8 February 2008 (EST)

Trampling Ox (Dual Attack) Must follow an off-hand attack. If it hits, you deal 1..2 damage. Target foe is cleansed of all conditions and hexes and has all their attributes boosted by 5..15 for the next sixty minutes. You and all allies within earshot explode. --71.229 22:15, 8 February 2008 (EST)

10..20 damage, same as Horns. Remember, if it's used, it's overpowered. And remember, Hikari made that comment just as Nightfall skills were starting to be used intelligently, and it looked pretty sodding overpowered back then. --71.229 23:34, 8 February 2008 (EST)
u have to admit, most people dont use Trampling for the damage, they use it for the KD. Damage reduction wont affect it by much. I Am Jebus 11:08, 10 February 2008 (EST)

Perfect think..

thanks for this build,and users for your opinion. certainly I prefer using deaths charge in AB. because if you were winning in ab everybody wants to escape.You can shadow step,take crippling.Enemy cant go out.

I think guiding hands isn't useful.Because it finishs immediate and if you get used to this build you can interrupt guardian :)

I changed the equipment to 15^enchanted from 15^50 for reasons that must be obvious.

Skill bar change?

I've found this to be more effective:

Slower and costs more energy yet also dealing less damage.--GatessMoebius Strike IconThe Gates Assassin 06:44, 9 April 2008 (EDT)
Slower? Jungle Strike adds 0.37 to the spike, but there is no impale so a second is removed from the end making it faster. 5 more energy isn't bad, and if you have trouble you can use Falling Lotus Strike instead of spider. Also, with the damage you are gaining 50 extra from Jungle Strike and losing 82 from using Twisting Fangs so it is 32 less damage, but the spike is finished before they can stand up so i find it is much more successful.

i was thinking the same thing, there are better spikes now like back breaker and beguiling haze spikeSaintsfan 16:21, 30 July 2008 (EDT)

I just think the spike needs to be updated, tbh.


[build prof=A/D CriticalStrikes=11+1+1 DaggerMastery=12+1 WindPrayers=6][Unsuspecting Strike][Jungle Strike][Trampling Ox][Falling Spider][Blades of Steel][Whirling Charge][Grenth's Grasp][Resurrection Signet][/build]

The first one is probably one of the strongest and fastest DW-less spike there is, because it'll easily deal 550-600 damage and it has Jungle Strike (quick attack). The second, however, is better for guaranteeing a kill because it has a back-up chain (Golden Fox Strike->Golden Fang Strike->Death Blossom, just take Zealous Dagger for this). So, the second one's chain would be something like Golden Fox Strike->Golden Fang Strike->Trampling Ox->Falling Spider->Death Blossom->(Golden Fox Strike->Golden Fang Strike->Death Blossom). The full chain (with the back-up included) will day over 650 damage on average, and your IAS should last just long enough for the extended chain. ــмıкεнaшк 16:43, 30 July 2008 (EDT)
What's ur obsession with chains within themselves, just takes BoS. and with GG I would love Unsuspecting tbh Frosty No U! 16:48, 30 July 2008 (EDT)
I don't like auto-attacking, that's all. With that smaller chain, you can still dish out 40-60 DPS (with Deep Wound) between your knockdown chains, which is pretty nice. ــмıкεнaшк 16:49, 30 July 2008 (EDT)
The first one is a little energy heavy, though, so you'd probably want to take either Lotus Strike or Falling Lotus Strike in there. ــмıкεнaшк 17:10, 30 July 2008 (EDT)

Signet of Malice

... should be in the variants, if not on the main bar. Remove at least 1, but often 4+ conditions depending on build version, moment and allies in these days' conditions galore. Dionyssios 06:36, 17 September 2008 (EDT)

...For what? If we take it we lose either deep wound, IAS/IMS or functionality. If anything Assassin's Remedy would be better since you can cover it with GG.--GatessMoebius Strike IconThe Gates Assassin 06:49, 17 September 2008 (EDT)
You should also kill your target before Signet of Malice can take advantage of the three conditions this build uses. =/ ــмıкεнaшк 07:09, 17 September 2008 (EDT)

You can't kill anything when blind or crippled. And was thinking about Twisting Fangs and Signet of Malice instead of Steel Blades and Impale. Free and fast condition removal is heaven in the game I play (Remedy sucks against crippled, costs 10, and can be interrupted). Even the worst RA team will put conditions on you, hell even NPCs will. Save the signet for blind or crippled though, or for moments with 6 conditions on you - it happens you know. Dionyssios 04:57, 18 September 2008 (EDT)

But you still have to get two attacks in to make sure that the blind will be removed. So if you are blind from the start, there is nothing you can do about it. It's better to just play skillfully then take skills that are easier and take less skill. Most blind bots are terrible in that they are only reactive, not proactive. If you attack a blind bot, you will be blind, if you don't you might not be. Also if you don't have a monk against a team like they, it doesn't matter if you have blind removal or not. --The Gates Assassin 07:02, 18 September 2008 (EDT)
Stop being bad Dionyssios. This build has FOCUS. Meaning it's devoted to KILLING. Not stopping mid-chain to remove weakness off of you. Stop trying to add to an already great build. Mr. Big 19px 07:40, 18 September 2008 (EDT)

Signet of Malice is 1/4 of a second without aftercast pal, calling your blindness for your monk to remove takes more time. If this wasn't a good build I wouldn't bother. If you're up against condition galore you can take this largely underestimated little skill which is perfect for condition inflicting builds. If not you can try to run around crippled hitting air while blind. Remedy is not an option in this build, SoM is. All I'm saying is it deserves a place as an optional, more than a self heal does. Dionyssios 05:00, 19 September 2008 (EDT)

Explain to me how Remedy isn't 1000x better at removing blind. If you're crippled, you can't get conditions on them anyway, same with blind. With Remedy, you can easily remove blind, and can remove cripple somewhat.--The Gates Assassin 05:30, 19 September 2008 (EDT)

The spike has an 8-second recharge, and 90% of foes in AB have under 550 health, why would you need a loooong chain like that? --The preceding srsly srs comment was added by Itokaru 18:36, 13 October 2008 (EDT)
Yeah, I thought the same way a little while ago, but I've been using HotO like crazy past couple of days and it works wonders in disorganized PvP. Most spellies will start running as soon as they see a Sin (therefor helping you). Also, I've found even when the only two targets to spike, were side by side that the one I'm not targeting will run away in fear of Death Blossom's AoE or just in general fear of getting spiked. Another thing about the build itself rather than HotO, though, is that if target foe is adjacent to an ally, you can still spike that target with about the same amount of damage that the original build uses. I usually use something like Golden Phoenix->Trampling Ox->Falling Spider->Twisting Fangs and (surprisingly) that's gotten the job done in most cases. But heartier targets like Warriors and Rangers need the full spike to have no doubts of killing. And @Itokaru, most squishies have around 600 health in all forms of PvP...and you have everything you need to successfully kill in this version. The only thing you really need is half a brain to not charge into a mob solo, and things like that. And, it usually takes at least to Falling Lotus to kill the target. And by then you've got your energy back so just go find another target and spike again. - WeHeartKatamari WeHeartKatamari 18:41, 13 October 2008 (EDT)
Most players in AB have a lot lower than 600, from my experience. --The preceding srsly srs comment was added by Itokaru 20:09, 14 October 2008 (EDT)

Impale Vs. Golden Fang Strike

This has probably already been covered but I need more opinions on this. Would a longer chain using Golden Fox -> Golden Fang -> Trampling Ox -> Falling Lotus -> Blades of Steel yield better results than the vetted chain using Impale? I understand that Impale can be used from a distance but it deals less damage and it activates slowwer than Golden Fang Strike with a +25% IAS. Shinomori 12:16, 14 October 2008 (EDT)

Takes too long to get to the real damage, and you can't do the awesomesause tactic of using golden phoenix, switching targets, then finishing the spike when the enchantments fall. Overall, it kills the utility this build has with that KD on demand.--The Gates Assassin 17:28, 14 October 2008 (EDT)
Ballin'. Thanks for clearing that up. This has become my new favorite build. Shinomori 20:05, 14 October 2008 (EDT)


Why not replace it with Twisting Fangs, this way you can have GPS → TO → FS → BoS, then GPS → TO → FS → TF every other. Impale has been nerf caked for a while now and twisting is the best form of dw for assassins. --FrostyMini england 15:07, 24 October 2008 (EDT)

Read above...--The Gates Assassin 15:09, 24 October 2008 (EDT)
Golden Fang Strike =/= Twisting Fangs --FrostyMini england 15:11, 24 October 2008 (EDT)
Oh my bad. Recharge, aka the whole reason for this build being in great--The Gates Assassin 15:29, 24 October 2008 (EDT)
Well I know that, but you can still spike as often, just replacing impale with Twisting means your spike with Deep Wound doesn't have to end with a 1 second cast skill, which has been nerfed. --FrostyMini england 15:31, 24 October 2008 (EDT)
You can't spike as often. With twisting it is mandatory that you spike only every 15 seconds because you don't have enough damage, with blades of steel you can still get a really strong spike out, and that's every 8 seconds.--The Gates Assassin 15:46, 24 October 2008 (EDT)
You can spike as often, you just use Twisting Fangs every other time... --FrostyMini england 15:48, 24 October 2008 (EDT)
A sin combo without a finisher is pretty meh, especially when you don't have conjures like the other build with a similar combo has. I see what you mean. Not a horrible idea, but I have to check math real quick--The Gates Assassin 16:31, 24 October 2008 (EDT)

Ok did some math real quick:

Blades + Impale

455 damage


335 damage



So with Blades and impale combo you can do about 455 damage and 335 otherwise, with twisting you do 353 and 335 otherwise. While twisting making it much easier to activate the deep wound, 100 extra damage is just too much to miss out.--The Gates Assassin 16:39, 24 October 2008 (EDT)

At a cost of having to cast is, slowing down the spike. --FrostyMini england 18:13, 24 October 2008 (EDT)
Still stronger, I'd rather have the ability to throw out a really strong spike if I wanted to. Also if you have a bit of coordination with other spikers you can throw out GFS --> Tramp --> Impale.--The Gates Assassin 18:28, 24 October 2008 (EDT)

If PS is better, vote higher on that one, but don't vote lower on this one because PS is better.--El Nazgir 14:05, 11 January 2009 (EST)
well the point is to vote lower on builds that don't do it as well... but i love this build, i won't vote low for anything :P --Tai Sig 14:17, 11 January 2009

Guess this is a moot point by now but here's my $0.02: Whoever wants to archive this is silly. Just cuz Palm Strike gets buffed & every1 creams themselves over how much better it is than it used to be, & provides a variant bar to accomplish virtually the same thing as this (& it's arguable which is better), is no reason to archive this. Each has different counters, or are affected by common counters in vastly different ways. Let's do elite vs elite for ex: If the Grenth's Grasp here gets Diversioned or Sig of Humility'd, oh noes, at least u alrdy have the enchant up & can still kill ppl in the meantime, while if the same happens to PS, you're fucked for potentially upwards of a minute, end of story. Besides, (I think) this out classes any PS build in terms of spike dmg & combo time (BoS says hi), but PS builds give more pressure. Plus I can almost guarantee PS will get more nerfs (recharge up to at least 6), while this won't :P - Ins420sig420 18:07, 12 January 2009 (EST)

If you get PS diverted, then thats more player fault, if your getting Hum Siged, then the team your playing are the most euro cunts on earth. FrostrageFrosty po! 18:29, 12 January 2009 (EST)
And considering that ench removal is a far more common counter, your point is moot. Jebuspachi-1-1.jpgMcPachirisu 20:13, 12 January 2009 (EST)

Golden Fang vs Impale

Looking back at this, I think [insert lead attack here] + Golden Fang would be a faster and probably higher damage spike. thoughts? --Tai Sig 16:48, 14 January 2009

I coulda sworn I said something similar weeks ago above. I do Unsuspecting -> Golden Fang -> etc. - Ins420sig420 18:05, 14 January 2009 (EST)
(whirling charge)golden fox -> golden fang -> trampling ox -> falling spider -> blades of steel imo --Ojamo (>.<(O=(- -Q) 20:18, 14 January 2009 (EST)
Slower spike with less damage from BoS; if youre going to go GFS~>golden fang, might as well take death blossom. Then its nearly IDENTICAL to the palm strike build. Btw, as soon as this issue is resolved, we need to at least archive the talk page. pvxbig loads slow >.< Jebuspachi-1-1.jpgMcPachirisu 21:53, 14 January 2009 (EST)
