In Topic: Is D/D good for precision/crit?

It was more about seeing condition D/D builds than the bleeding and poison built into some of the weapon skills. Just thought it was a bit strange, thought I might have been missing something obvious.

You can do a conD build on a thief without much trouble, and it actually does quite well in WvW, either running D/D and a Death Blossom centric build, or run with a P/D build focused on bleeds and torment.

Also, building D/D around conditions is a lot of fun.  Not terrible efficient when it comes to dmg and kill times, but there are a lot of amusing things that you can do with it in PvE.

Plus, definitely listen to Chase, he knows his thieves. :P

Do you think you have the PERFECT thief build? Then list off your traits here and give a short tutorial of how to take advantage of it! Good luck fellow thieves!

Depends on your definition of perfect.

Plus, there are quite a few build guides out there with example builds with all sorts of info. Chase has done quite a bit of work with maths of various thief builds, most of them found here.

Personally, I've been running in PvE with a 66002 build because it makes killing things insanely quick, full Zerks, Scholar Runes, Bloodlust Sig, etc.

How did you master a class in 30 days of playing it?

I'm with Nike on this one...

Been playing a thief since launch and I'm still constantly learning and discovering new things about it against different mobs and such.

Hey.  I love this guide! when is the update for the post patch era?  It seems all  the build sites are way behind the times.  Has everyone stopped playing?  I'm bumbling my way through finding a new build and it has not gone well.  I don't even know what runes are the best post patch!  Please update so I won't suck so much in PvP.  Thanks! :)

You'll probably want to head over to the PvP section of the forums if that's what you are looking for...

But other than that, the max DPS (if that's the type of build you are looking for) PvE build for a thief hasn't changed a whole lot, 66002 generally, though the 56003 still works pretty well. Scholar runes, Zerker gear, the usual.  If you are looking for other builds, the majority of my builds that I've posted here on Guru still work, with some minor tweaking.  Hopefully I'll have the time over this coming weekend to update some of them.

Loper, have you tried your build recently with the new Bewildering Ambush trait? It's absolutely killer.

Haven't gotten a chance to as of yet, hoping to at some point, though I'm not sure which is better for the overall theme of the build, the Steal CD or Bewildering.

My thoughts right now are that in PvE, the Steal CD is much better, but in WvW its more of a flavor choice, but the Bewildering will give you more killing power.
