This build had been designed for the following use:

This build was in the category Good before being archived.

The "YAA" Shadow Warrior use the elite skill "You're All Alone" with a sword to provide 4 conditions, a snare and to reduce damage from a single melee char attacking you or an ally within your range. Combining "YAA" with Signet of Malice provides an energy free condition removal that can remove upto 4 conditions in certain situations. In GvG this works as a ganker mainly due to the effect of "YAA" applying weakness to reduce the damage the guards do. This makes a much more durable ganker compared to Assassins which are usually seen ganking.

  • A Crippling longbow of Fortitude or Crippling Spear of Fortitude to lure guards or to gain adrenaline from a safer range.(The crippling part is to increase the cripple that "YAA" does)

Usage Edit

  • Pick your target and use "YAA" on them. (make sure they are not near any allies)
  • Begin attacking. Renewing "YAA" whenever required.
  • Spike with Sever Artery, Gash and Sun and Moon Slash in that order.
  • Use Frenzy as an IAS
  • Use Rush to cancel Frenzy as a cancel stance and to flee quickly from a fight.
  • Use Signet of Malice after "YAA" to remove conditions from yourself.
  • Use Healing Signet to heal whenever needed. Be sure not to hit it when you are receiving much damage, since of the -40 damage you might even get more extra damage then healed.

Counters Edit

  • Heavy condtion removal (such as RC and mending touch)
  • Anti melee hexes
  • Blocking
  • Adrenaline denial
  • Blind to an extent but can be easily removed by Signet of Malice

Variants Edit

  • Dash/Sprint/Enraging Charge instead of Rush for longer lasting IMS
  • Body Blow/Sun and Moon Slash/Silverwing Slash/Final Thrust instead of Bull's Strike
  • An interupt skill like Distracting Strike or Disrupting Daggers can be used instead of Bull's Strike
  • Flail/Flurry instead of Frenzy for a different IAS
  • Signet of Maliace can be replaced by another attack skill like Bull's Strike or by a self heal like Shadow Refuge but at the cost of condition removal
  • An axe version can use Dismember, Executioners Strike instead of Sever Artery and Gash for a higher dps but at the loss of a condition.
  • Resurrection Signet can be replaced by Shadow Refuge or Deaths Charge for use in AB.If so drop Strength down to 10+1 and hav 8 shadow arts. (Recommended for AB)
  • Healing Signet for Resurrection Signet,If so drop Strength down to 10+1 and hav 8+1 tactics.(Replace a Vitae rune for a Minor Tactics rune)

Notes Edit

  • Using "YAA" against someone who is in a mob or close to an ally of theirs is not advised due to the effects of "YAA" which will make it useless.
  • Works well against guards due to the fact they are well spread out.
