Power S/D Core Thief PvP Build

GW2. Power S/D Core Thief PvP Build. Roamer Thief PvP.

Last Update: April 2024

The Power S/D Core Thief is a Roamer PvP build that gets in and out very safely using the sword 2 which leaves a return location that they can port back to within 15 seconds. Using this wisely to place the return location in a safe spot, they can play aggressively to bait out cooldowns with little risk until they are ready to finish off their opponents. This build lacks reliable stealth, but survives through positioning and evades. It also has great boon removal and access to unblockable attacks on the Sword 3 which makes it the best thief build for team fights despite being mainly a roamer.

The purpose of the build is to secure kills on isolated or focus targets with your team. However, if there is not much pressure you cannot fully commit to a kill because of the low sustain of a thief. You want to abuse the Sword 2 and the evade uptime to poke targets out of their cooldowns until you can finally finish them off.

Basic Combo: Sword 2 > Dagger 5 > Tactical Strike (Stealth 1) > 3 > F1 + 3

Advanced Combo: Dagger 4 > Sword 2 (In) > 5 > 1 > 3 > 3 > 2 (out) > F1 + 5 > 1 > 3 > 3

Creating pressure around the map simply by moving can also help to get kills. When stuck in the same fight for a while, the enemy may be able to sustain through your cooldowns, but when forcing the enemy to follow you to reinforce fights you create, you have an advantage of getting there first. Use this to your advantage and keep moving whenever you can’t finish kills in a fight.
