Power Daredevil is a hyper-mobile, high DPS build that is incredibly versatile. It's capable of performing well both when solo and in farm zergs. Additionally, when it comes to tagging in events such as the Mad King's Labyrinth, this build is easily the best in the game at it (tied with Greatsword Mirage).
