All Gear and Glyphs are Legendary

 

1 Heavy Kragh

1 Light Molag Kena

5 Leviathan Armor

1 Perfect Relequen Bow

1 Perfect Relequen Shield

1 Perfect Relequen Dagger/Sword etc. Does not matter.

All Armor and Shield have Stamina Glyphs and Divines Trait

Bow and Dagger have Weapon Damage Glyphs and Precise Trait

Jewellery has Bash Glyphs and Infused Trait

Shadow Mundus (74% crit chance and 94% crit damage)

 

(Note Perfect Relequen is a long slog to farm, regular Relequen is perfectly fine while you are farming it... assuming you can be bothered to.)

 

General Info

 

Dubious Camoran Throne

Start on bow bar and weave lights between skills. Power Extraction for Brutality, Caltrops, Hail, Injection, switch bars, Focus, Trap and then weave lights with Surprise attacks and a bash. Killer blade in execute phase. Use spectral bow when needed.

Simple and very high damage.

With correct CP allocation I was getting over 26k with Surprise Attacks and Bashing alone on crit (this is with full penetration from team assuming Alkosh and Crushing Torug's is in play. Fully Buffed). I will save the full DPS for you as a surprise. It is pretty insane.

Bash alone crits for 8600 on crit, add that to Surprise Attack and light attack crit. (which it will due to 74% Weapon Crit) you can see the potential damage here.

Thief Mundus will give you 86% Crit Chance but 74% is more than enough and benefits of Shadow are tremendous with Leviathan set.

 

Champion Point Tips

 

Ritual Tree

Piercing: 100 (This is due to noone in group having Sunderflame at the time. If it is, you only need 25 points here.)

Precise Strikes: 100

Mighty: 0 (You can put 5 in here if Sunderflame is in play.)

Thaumaturge: 20

 

Atronach Tree

Master at Arms: 30 (you can put 100 in here if Sunderflame is in play.)

 

The Lover Tree:

Mooncalf: 100

Tenacity: 100

 

The Tower Tree: 

Bashing Focus: 50

 

The Steed Tree:

Iron Clad: 100

Spell Shield: 100

 

The Lord Tree

Quick Recovery: 50

 

This is assuming you have 750 cp and 250 for each section. Lower CP's will have to adjust, just remember at lower CP Penetration is king but if Alkosh, Torug Crushing and Sunderflame is in play then 25 is all you will ever need with this armor and skill set up. Discuss with your group and make sure before hand. THEY SHOULD BE RUNNING THESE SETS IN TRIALS! 

If you are in 4 man vet content then 100 in Precise will have you covered if above sets are lacking which they usually are. Solo content you will only need 25 points due to enemy armor values being a lot lower.

GG have fun Sword and Board DPS has arrived.

    Haha yes I am so gonna do this. I think your CP allocation could use a bit of fine tuning but I understand why you put 100 points into Precise Strikes due to Leviathan. I run Hundings so I might have to fiddle around a bit before I give this a go.

    Hmm. Only viable due to Arms of Relequen being BiS for Stam DPS. Also I agree on the bash glyphs being very good now. Offers good burst in PVP too. I wonder if you could switch Surprise Attacks for Power Bash and the Sword and Shield ULT for PVP. Still I cannot argue that this build is not bad at all. Well done.
