Daredevil - Condi P/P Blind Spammer

The community gave this build a rating, making it second-tier: Good

Focused on: Hybrid damage

Designed for: PvP Conquest

This build was last updated on November 08, 2023 and is up to date for the November 07, 2023 game patch.


The gameplan of this rather obnoxious PvP Daredevil build is simple: use in for stealth, follow up - repeat until target dies. Due to its simplistic playstyle it's also quite beginner friendly.

Skill Bar


Slot Changes


can be replaced by:

  • - AoE burst damage that can cover an entire capture point on some maps.
  • - passive mobility and the active adds a lot of cover conditions to burst combos. The passive makes it possible to drop and take a stronger rune like or .
  • - stun break with extra initiative and an evade frame. Also cleanses some non-damaging conditions.

  • - lowers your burst damage but gives you more frequent access to Stealing and turns into an instant interrupt. The CD reduction on Stealing also helps with Vigor Vigor uptime which is crucial to the build.



Equipment Variants


If you don't need the passive mobility speed boost of Lynx, replace it with either one of the following runes:

  • - higher burst damage.
  • - good stats and the the anti-condition aspect could help in mirror matchups, or against any other condi build in general.


  • - the extra healing reduction could help you kill bunker builds.
  • - passive condition duration.
  • - extra damage and more condition variety on your spam, but has a 20s cooldown.



  • Much of the sustain in the build comes from spamming Blind and stealth attacks.
  • Spamming projectiles while inside (BP) is both your primary source of defense and offense.
  • If you don't have the initiative for BP or if you're under heavy pressure, use . This is the best defensive skill in the build, keeping you safe from both melee and projectile pressure while also proccing Blind related traits and providing a combo field for stealthing.
  • When you get low on HP or you feel like you need to wait for CDs/initiative to come back, simply linger in stealth for a while instead of ambushing.
  • is an excellent defensive skill. Not only is it a stun break and instant source of stealth, it's also a blast finisher that can be used inside Blinding Powder and Smoke Screen for even more stealth.
  • provides much needed cleansing and another option for stealthing without having to set up a combo field first.
  • provides a steady stream of condition cleansing, as entering/exiting stealth frequently is part of your rotation.
    • Otehr source of condition removal include 's chain skill, but and .
  • won't be used much except for interrupting important skills (such as healing or rez attempts). When used in a smoke field like BP this will not only interrupt their current action, but also makes their next attack miss because of the Blind Blind from the projectile finisher. That interaction also makes this rather strong when you're under pressure and need to survive.
  • is mainly for defense. The on-demand evade frame coupled with potential blinding projectiles while used in a smoke field could not only save you from lethal damage but also heal you up. The healing scales with the number of enemy targets.


  • Most of the damage comes from spamming .
  • provides passive Initiative generation while doing your burst rotation. Use this excess Initiative to use some filler skills while you can't re-enter Stealth Stealth.
  • is a strong but expensive filler which works very much like Sneak Attack except for being a less reliable projectile finisher. Try to use it inside whenever possible.

Core burst rotation:

  1. Dodge inside BP to proc for stealth
  2. while standing inside BP for 100% chance to combo blinding projectiles for sustain.

The least fun thief build to fight against. Easy to play but quite a low skill cap. You will likely win matchups where the enemy has no resist or low condi cleanse but you have little room to outplay opponents in even or unfavourable matchups. Good build for new players but rarely played in ranked or tournaments.

Maybe it's a personal thing, but I perform better with this than other builds. Naturally, it has a decent amount of counters, ele alone probably accounts for most of that, being projectile and condi reliant. This is why i'm giving it 4 stars. I would go lower due to this but this build is so good at what it does that it kinda outshines some of its weaknesses. If you sneak attacks are allowed to go off, you deal a mean stack of bleed, some poison, and most cases blind, probably getting well over 2k a tick with just that 1 attack. Your filler damage is really low (can be boosted by throwing a steal in the midst of it) but your job is mainly to finish off foes rather than 100-0ing them. I personally like to throw a couple headshots in between my stealth windows so your opponent can do little against you before you're back in stealth. Even with mass projectile blockage, skills like choke gas and cluster bomb aren't technically projectiles so you can still contribute to a teamfight even if it's being bunkered. I'm sitting in and out of g2 with this build and can't really get any higher. Probably more of a skill issue than anything, but it wouldn't surprise me if you saw a lot more getting outplayed especially with this build but stealth in general is fairly hard to counter so I think it can be viable in g3/p1. I also swap Shadow's Rejuvenation for Rending Shade, feel like I get a lot more value out of that

While it might not have quite the same burst potential and mobility as other thief builds, the straightforward overall gameplay pattern and automatic defensive tools means that the build performs much better then most thief builds in the hands of a new player. After a while you probably want to move onto a dagger/pistol, pistol/dagger, or deadeye build, as they fill the tasks expected of a thief better, but if it looks like you're going to have to duel a lot rather then +1ing then this build can still perform.
