Condition DPS Axe Deadeye Build

GW2. Raid Build. Condition DPS Axe Deadeye. Thief PvE.


Last Update: March 2024


Overview

The Condition Axe Deadeye is a combo oriented thief build for group PvE content that has great single target damage with ranged capabilities while also having AoE from the piercing axes. The playstyle involves sending out axes to their cap of 6 and then converging them on your target for a heavy burst. This combo can cost heavy initiative, so the deadeye trait Maleficent Seven provides you the initiative you need if you can perform the right skills in the right order.

Playstyle

Role: DPS

The main idea is to keep using the axe combo while getting maximum value from Maleficent Seven to maintain your resources. The basic combo is Axe 2 twice and then converge them with Axe 3. Then reset your Malice by using the Sneak attack with stealth or Mercy. You can get stealth from Dagger 5 or the stolen ability F2 when above 5 malice.

Skill Rotation:

  • Maintain F1 on main target
  • Axe 2 > 2 > 3
  • Mercy + F1 OR Stealth (Dagger 5/F2) > Sneak Attack 1
  • Repeat Axe 2 > 2 > 3
