D/P Daredevil Roaming Build

GW2. WvW Build. D/P Daredevil Roaming Build. Thief World vs World 2022.


Last Update: November 2022



Shadow Arts Variant


Overview

The Shadow Arts D/P Daredevil is the highest mobility build in the game. While stealth has many counters, it still allows survival in many disadvantageous situations with dodging and movement. Along with this ability to overextend and its burst damage, it can secure kills on high priority targets. With Shadow Arts, you focus on stealth application to generate lifesteal and initiative over time to maintain pressure on targets, then finish them off with Heartseeker when they get low.

Basic Opener: Pistol 5 > Dagger 2 > Sneak Attack 1 > Dagger 3 > 111 > Steal > 222

You will use the 5>2 Black Powder into Heartseeker stealth combo often, but to be more efficient when using multiple finishers, wait until your stealth is about to run out and then cast Heartseeker again so that you leave stealth while still in the Heartseeker animation. This will make you leave and then immediately reenter stealth to get double the value from the Shadow Arts traits.

After landing your Backstab, decide if you can continue to pressure the target with your auto attack chain (111) or you need to use Shadow Shot (3) to gap close. Always try to land the final part of the auto attack chain because it does the most damage, and try to do this during the daze and quickness duration from your steal (F1) with Celerity Sigil. Dodge away as soon as your enemy starts to counter pressure and restart the Stealth Combo Opener.

Prioritize using Steal/Swipe for momentum. This can be done to interrupt a block/heal, prevent counter pressure so you can follow through with your burst, or to close the gap if your target is moving away too far. But wasting it or using it too early can result in stalling the fight longer than you can sustain it. Play passively and use Shortbow 2 or stealth while waiting for an opening or your Steal to come off cooldown, then go aggressive when you see an opening.

Gameplay



Deadly Arts Variant


With Improvisation in the Deadly Arts trait line recharging your cooldowns faster, you focus more on actively pressuring cooldowns out of your opponents until there is a kill window. Deadly Arts has more burst due to damage modifiers from weakness uptime with Weakening Strikes. Though it has more burst and playmaking potential, it has less sustain and cleansing. It is worse in solo situations, but in group situations with supports it can get its job done more efficiently.
