Usage

General

  • Initiate fights either with (both to set up burst through Immobilize Immobilize and to create an escape route via ) or . This is one of the few builds where stealing is part of your burst rotation therefore can be used more freely.


Sword/Dagger

Main weapon set. CC, burst damage, minor utility.

  • The bulk of your damage comes from (PW) which is the primary burst skill in the build, but can be rather hard to land. Use every too available to make it connect:
    • could root the target long enough if you immediately follow up with PW.
    • Striking a target from behind or the side may proc useful boons from once every minute, making it easier to land while also increasing its damage.
    • Precasting PW and using in the middle of the first part of the skill is a great way to not only teleport right to the target before stunning them, but also to rip defensive boons suchs as Stability Stability or Protection Protection thanks to the trait .
  • is a relatively cheap souce of moderate damage thanks to . Overall it's better to just spam PW instead, but its range and quick cast time makes it useful for harassing enemies from a safe distance and interrupting important skills.
  • is a low priority skill in this build, mainly to be used for stacking AoE Stealth Stealth out of combat by blasting it with and whatever blast finishers your allies might contribute.


Short bow

Utility weapon

  • being a spammable blast finisher has high value for your team when it comes to blasting fields for Stealth Stealth or healing (although they'll have to provide the fields).
    • Its chain skill is a solid cource of downed cleave, or even ranged burst if you pre-cast Cluster Bomb Cluster Bomb aimed at your feet, Steal Steal near the end of the animation and then detonate at your target.
  • provides cheap and spammable evasion in case you're being focused by the enemy team and your defensive skills are on CD. Remains usable even while Immobilize Immobilized.
  • Use on downed enemies especially if they are being revived - Poison decreases healing gained by 33% which affects resurrecting speed.
  • is the #1 skill for moving around the map in general, cuts down on travel time between capture points drastically.


Utilities & elite

  • is your best souce of cleansing, as it instantly removes 3 conditions. In addition to that, this also gives an entire dodge roll's worth of endurance which can be used as a last resort option for squeezing out more dodges when you're out of endurance and don't have time to heal. Keep in mind that the active portion of this skill is AoE! Try to use it near allies whenever possible.
  • is easily the most versatile and one of the strongest skills in the build. It has 2 parts:
    • The first half is a stun break and teleport, which already has countless applications. A few applications include teleport to safety while pressured, extending your reach in combat, or using the instant mobility boost to decap enemy points before using the 2nd part of the skill to leave just as fast.
    • The second half is called . This skill becomes available for 10 seconds after using Shadowstep, and cures 3 conditions in addition to breaking stun again before returning you to your starting location.
    • These can also be combined to safe stomp targets: begin stomping, away to safety, and then follow up with at the end of the animation in order to finish the target.
  • has great versatility. If is not on cooldown you're allowed to use this stunbreak more freely, even for just the evasion or the initiative.
  • is both a defensive and offensive elite. The rather lengthy evade frame with increased movement speed makes it an excellent panic button when you're being focused by the enemy team. On the other hand the skill deals heavy AoE damage whilst evading, which makes it great for pressuring melee targets in general with next to no risk.
    • Note: skills like or are able to interrupt Dagger Storm, so don't be completely careless.

Kind of was harsh on this build just because I think it’s not as good as dp dash. This build is used with the purpose of replacing s/d thief in ranked, but my main problem with that it doesn’t fix the actual problem with s/d which is mostly a damage problem. Having dash makes it nice for focusing on decaps and is popular for 1v1ing, but I don’t think it’s enough to make it meta. 1.) it fairs very poorly against firebrand which is a big part of the meta 2.)it actual loses 1v1s to other thief builds- say staff which isn’t even considered great for 1v1ing other thiefs while say staff still has a much better match up against side noders rn(like how it can beat fire weaver much of the time when played right) 3.) the damage when lesser haste isn’t up is very very poor. I only expect to see this do anything with lesser haste which makes it more predictable then any other thief build

Kinda have to agree with the previous two comments. This is all over ranked right now thanks to Sindrener, but I do expect the hype to die down eventually. It's not the best thief build out there and is a huge gimmick, but it's totally workable and has a somewhat unique playstyle.

Not hard to play, but it might take some time to get used to it.

Yeah a clear working build, not any better then sword dagger acro core but offers a somewhat different effective playstyle. This is one of the offmeta builds that can do it’s job just as good as most thief builds and not be a detriment to the team. Plus sindrener showed its effectiveness on stream and yt. All in all not bad.

been trying this out (rank plat) since it was posted; I lost a lot of matches at first with it because I focused too much on the lock, after I really figured out the ins and outs of the build, I realized that it’s equipped to handle just as many, if not more scenarios than DP and SD. Really is a fun build, and I’ve climbed back to where I peaked last season with DP using it. I’d rate it as meta, but I think it’s not quite accurate to say that the build focuses on the stunlock. I get off stunlocks against some classes, but most of the time, a single pistol whip combined with wearing down a foe and some well-placed headshots results in a kill.

Also, swapping out DD for acro is viable. Not quite as fun without the pulms tho.

Solid build, the idea of using haste on the lowered cooldown from earlier this year makes the stunlock abusable. Definitely a lot of utility, and surprisingly isn't that gimmicky. I'd say it's a solid alternative to the sword/dagger builds, but it is overall definitely a lot more distinct than people think. The skill ceiling definitely comes in with the timing, as messing up pistolwhip is HEAVILY punishing. Also, what you do when you're not pistol-whip/stunlocking matters, which is the main thing I've learned testing this shit out.

I'd say it has as much top-tier potential as the currently popular sword-dagger builds, and definitely brings more to team-fights (which is sorely needed in this meta) than DP.
