GW2. Best Open World Build. Pistol Deadeye. Thief PvE.
Last Update: December 2023
When you want to quickly tab through enemies and gun them down fast, this Pistol/Pistol Deadeye build is a fast paced and medium ranged option for disposing of single enemies or groups of enemies. Deadeye’s Mark F1 will grant you many boons including Quickness, and it will recharge on defeating that target. This makes chain-killing extremely efficient as you will have permanent Quickness uptime when breezing through weaker enemies. The only thing you need to do is make sure the target is Marked, then spam Pistol 3 Unload.
Single Target Skill Priority:
F1 > Pistol 3 until target is dead > Tab > F1 > Repeat
If target does not die before you run out of initiative, use Mercy and then Mark the target again
AoE Skill Priority:
F1 any target, Shortbow 1 or Shortbow 4/2 depending on how many enemies there are
Dagger Storm when out of initiative
Always use your Haste off cooldown to gain quickness uptime, as it will recharge very quickly due to the Payback trait recharging your utilities slightly for each marked kill.
