Overview

This build features absurdly high mobility and AoE damage which makes it ideal for farming events that require good Tagging builds! It does not perform well against solo content such as bosses and will function decently in typical Event farming.

(or other Halloween utility). To further increase efficiency, use all possible Magic Find boosts, for more info go to Magic Find

Usage

Combat

  • Dodge to maintain mobility and abuse to hit multiple enemies at once. Use to maintain mobility.
  • Against static groups of mobs, spam and dodge as often as possible.

Game Options

  • Check "AoE Loot on Interact", "Autoloot: Autopickup" and "Autoloot: Quick interact" (requires Advanced Logistics mastery) - without that you will spend too much time picking up the loot
  • Uncheck "Promote Skil Target" so game won't "stick" to one target
  • Uncheck "Stop Autoattacking on Target Change" so you won't stop attacking when changing the target (if you have autoattack on)
  • Check "Autotargetting" so the game will choose target you are facing while attacking
  • Check "Allow Skill Retargetting" so your skills won't be canceled when changing the target
  • Ctrl+Rclick your to turn OFF autoattack so you won't make too much damage
  • Bind a key to "Autorun" (it makes life easier during hours-long farm)
Thanks to all this you will be able to hit every target only once or twice with just spamming while trying to target different mobs with every attack with just your camera. That will allow others to tag.
Least tiring option: Apart of all the above, you can also turn on Action Camera (preferably bind a key to "Toggle Action Camera"), it works very well in simple to navigate maps like Mad King's Lab because you can keep pressing left mouse button to keep using and alternate your movement with just strafe buttons while autorunning.

Shortbow thief is so underrated for this kind of stuff, great for istan, leather, anything realistically. personally i use the daredevil variant with some poisons since it's technically me dealing that damage, tagging even more mobs. if its an event where i want to tag everything and be somewhat stationary (e.g akili) this also works with deadeye, using shadow flare (tag even more stuff and has a shadowstep) and the trait collateral damage. Another option is playing medic thief and taking some heal power, skelk venom and shadow arts with shadow refuge, melandru elite (human) to get resses off in difficult places such as in doric when the comm and squad leaves someone to die. Overall a very versatile and flexible build.
