Gear and Item Set Info


Armor sets . 5 pieces hundings rages with 4 pieces of night mothers gaze . Impenetrable trait on armor and sharpened on weapons. Stamina enchantments on armor and fire and frost on blades with poison or disease on bow . And jewelry three pieces sword singers with stamina enchantments. But my go to alternative armor sets would be hulking draguer and eternal hunt with sword singers jewelry.

keep higest level poison with you at all times and bring lots of health and stamina potions. And your food buff should be something that increases health and stamina. For at least 2 hours 


General Info


This build is a fast damage long range burner type build . With this build you can still do lots of damage but also stay out of most aoe attacks that most dungeon , delve and world bosses dish out . And with that being said lets get down to business . First things the armor sets . On this build go with five pieces hundings rage , four pieces night mothers gaze , and three pieces of sword singers jewelry the best trait for this gear is impenetrable on the armor and sharpened on the weapons ( swords or daggers are recommended ) and the enchantments that should go on the armor should be stamina and the weapon enchantments should be fire and frost on the swords and poison or disease on the bow . Sword singers jewelry can farmed in the ali'kr desert dolmen . Now this build is designed for pve but with the right group you can do pvp with this build ​​​. This build's best strength comes from its resourcefulness and adaptability . If used properly and the right kinda player uses this build. That player can accomplish anything they set there mind to . And remember this is a main dps build so make sure if this build is used for dungeons you should have a good close range dps to back you up and keep some adds off you . And the best strategy to use during duels with this build is . Relentless force than shadow cloak and than ambush so you can get a quick upper hand in the fight and when possible use toxic barrage to finish your opponent if you think it's possible to finish off the enemy at that moment. Always think during every fight so you can adapt at a moments notice.
