Just curious to what the stat priorities are, and if there different when your a low lvl.

Example: Low lvls should stack Vit/Power, high lvls should stack Power/Precision.

Idk how many stats can be on 1 item at higher lvls so sorry for the bad example

Completely depends on your weapon sets and traits.

I’ve done mostly a Crit build with my Thief and pretty much loving it. HS crits from behind I get roughly 3.5k dmg – how’s everyone elses looking like?

*Edit: I’m lv80 with crap gear too … hopefully once I’m decked out I can peak at 4.5k

Is this for PvE or PvP? (is there any difference?) Cause I haven’t gone into PvP yet. I still have a long way to go :/

Either, more if they have no toughness, less if they do. but on average most my shots are 8-10k of the ones i specified, and auto attacks are 2-4k

If you put 15 pts in Critical strike trait , and got the Opportunist trait ie 20% chance to gain 1 initiative on crit. Or Sundering strike from Deadly arts tree which gives 40% chance of vulnerability on crit , Then I would stack precision.

This pretty much sums up what is wrong with this game.

How so? he is decked out in full berserker gear I’m assuming meaning purely glass cannon, if he didn’t have crazy damage that would be something wrong.

Yup, it would be pointless to make myself squishy if fights lasted longer then a few seconds. If thats the case ill switch to my power/toughness/healing set, or mix and match them. Next i’m working on power/vit/con dmg to see how i like that build.

I build Precision & Crit Damage. Precision gives you both +health (with the trait) and +crit chance.

your hp is so low i have to imagine you die in the duration of your pistol whip animation in pvp.

Surprisingly no. thanks to haste and basilisk venom. Venom, steal or shadowstep in assassins signet, haste, 2-3 pistolwhips and either roll or shadowstep away. Then venom barely wears off as the 3rd pistolwhip is hitting.

Again i play many different builds, this is just my assassin build. I believe different builds are for different situations. In WvWvW i prefer the assassin, in sPvP i prefer a stealth build with VA, healing and toughness.
