The Official API is experiencing issues; skill, trait and item data cannot be loaded at the moment.
Note: Please note that builds will default to plain icons, these may not be as accurate. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Maybe it never coalesced into something brilliant. Maybe it never made it off the ground floor. Maybe we based our better ideas off of it. Basic builds are anywhere from downright bad to just shy of being good enough to showcase. These builds share the widest ratings and can lead to wildly differing levels of success.

Focused on: Direct damage.

Designed for:


A PvP-build with good single targed-burst and mutch stealth.

On a melee build why would you give up the classic steal as a gap closer? Also, if I wanted to play a thief with high stealth uptime (which does not bring so much benefit in a capture the node game mode), shadow arts would probably bring more benefit. Plus the traits in critical strikes are not the ones synergizing with stealth attacks most. DE is workable with p/p imho.

yeah this build could have good backstabs. i would honestly think if you want crit strikes you would be using rifle, plus are the traits selected on the crit strike traitline even the correct ones? I would play it with 100% crit chance when in stealth, also I would play shadow arts and valk amulet for sustain to be optimal.

It's fun and all, but you can't expect to make a backstab build work in 2018. Too much setup and luck is needed for a very inconsistent payoff, everyone has a bunch of ways to counter it. Deadeye looks even worse after the recent rework.

It is a nice Variant of the old Dagger/Pistol Vanilla thief Build with mutch Focus on the "backstab" Skill
