by the way, when talking about gear like rings, trinkets and back peaces. What is a good idea to get if it is not ascended gear jet? also, full zerker set?

I mainly run with S/D and shortbow as my main weapons - sword gives great deal of evade. I also throw in the caltrops for better crowd control, since there is only one skill in s/d setup that can stop enemies.

Honestly, S/D is pretty pants for pve. I suppose it could work if you need the extra evade, but Pistol offhand is better in so many ways.

If you don't have full asc, get full exo. Asc rings, amulet and backpiece are fairly easy to get hold of, trinkets slightly less so. Then go weapons (prioritize your main weapons), then armor, then other weapons (a second pistol for example, as you won't be using P/P often).

I could certainly see Crossbow (if added) being a thief's single target ranged damage weapon - assuming we discount pistol cos it's a horrible mess of mixed damage types.

There's a load of near useless traits which could be altered to have increased SB range too. I'm looking at you Assassin's Retreat.

In regards to stealth, you can (personally) manage 6 blasts using shortbow 2 on Smokescreen before it expires.

As to your build, consider Sundering Strikes over Mug, for increased party DPS. Power of Inertia is better than Assassin's retreat also.

I'd also reccomend you go full Beserker (I noted you have a few non-max/valkyrie pieces which are okay until you get a full set of zerker).

Swap your Dagger for a Sword when not fighting bosses also, and go D/D when fighting bosses. (exceptions lupicus if necessary).

Swap out your Sigils of Blood, for Force on your main hard, and Fire on your bow.

Thats about the best I can do without telling you to ditch all the defensive stats in favor of DPS.

I agree there isn't a large amount of situations where I've felt that 900 range is handicapping me, but it particularly shone when I did the recent LS with my thief, then mesmer.

For pvp, halfway decent dunegon clearing and 90% of stuff, 900 is fine, there's a few moments when I'd like 1200 - wvw is a good example.
