Revision as of 03:53, July 27, 2007

The PvXwiki community finds this to be an excellent build.

If you disagree with this rating, please discuss it on the build's talk page.

This build has been designed for the following use:

The Shadow Prison Sin is a fragile yet deadly assassin used to take down targets quickly while making use of Shadow Prison to snare the target long enough to unleash the build's vicious assault.

Attributes and Skills

Equipment

Usage

  • The spike is done quickly, in the following order:
  • (Expose Defenses ->) Shadow Prison -> Tiger Stance -> Black Lotus Strike -> Twisting Fangs -> Black Spider Strike -> Blades of Steel.
  • Execute the attack chain with Vampiric daggers.
  • Switch to Zealous daggers if energy runs low.
  • Use Ebon daggers when fighting a Warrior or when you are not engaged in combat.
  • Use Expose Defenses if your target is protected by any skill that gives a chance to block attacks (e.g., Aegis, Guardian, Weapon of Warding).

Counters

  • Standard Melee counters.
  • Restore Condition will ruin a spike of this build, as it will remove all of the conditions you have put on the target and heal most of the damage dealt.
  • Hex Breaker will cause problems; even though your initial 'Hex Jump' will succeed, the hex will not be applied, and thus the combo cannot start. Follow immediately with Expose Defenses if you see that Shadow Prison did not hex the target: you may be able to hex your foe before Hex Breaker is reactivated.
