<pvxbig> [build prof=Assassin/Elementalist Shadow Arts=12+1+3 Earth Magic=12 Critical Strikes=3][Optional][Shadow Form][Shroud of Distress][Mental Block][Optional][Ebon Battle Standard of Honor][Silver Armor][Optional][/build] </pvxbig>

  • Optionals:
  • Optional 1 should be a skill to reduce Shadow Form rechage:
  • [Glyph of Swiftness]For low energy usage but easier to interrupt
  • [Deadly Paradox]Uses more energy but more difficult to interrupt
  • Note: if using essence of celerity you can use any of the other optionals instead of a RRT skill
  • Optional 2 could be a blocking skill or one that reduces damage:
  • [Armor of Earth]Provides huge armor at the cost of 21% of your movement speed
  • [Kinetic Armor]Works good as long as you can keep on casting spells every 8 seconds
  • [Stoneflesh Aura]Reduces damage and negates critical hits though you will need to recast sooner
  • [Unseen Fury]Helps in handling big melee mobs
  • [Glyph of Lesser Energy]This skill is useful if your damage skills consume too much energy or you can't keep up energy.
  • Optional 3 should be a healing or regeneration skill to help you survive longer:
  • [Feigned Neutrality]
  • [Shadow Sanctuary] Better healing than FN but at the cost of one of your PvE skills
  • [Glyph of Concentration] If farming on areas with interrupts

Equipment Edit

  • Armor
  • Full Blessed armor
  • 3 Attunement runes
  • 1 Vigor rune(the one you can afford)
  • 1 Superior Shadow arts rune on headpiece
  • Weapons
  • 1º Set: Any one handed melee weapon with 20% enchantments and +5 energy combined with a Fortitude(+30hp)shield(inscription varies depending were you are farming, the most common is +10 armor vs piercing damage)
  • 2º Set: An insightful staff of enchanting with +5 ene (in case energy runs low)

Usage Edit

  • Precast glyph of swiftness or deadly paradox and then SF.
  • Precast SoD
  • Cast Mental Block just before aggroing
  • Grab all the aggro you can hold without dying
  • Choose the foe or foes you want to kill
  • Use EBSoH and the Silver Armor
  • Get closer slowly to them until Silver Armor damages them
  • Recharge and repeat to kill all the foes or move out and get a new mob

Counters Edit

  • SF getting rupted
  • Mental block and SoD rupted or down
  • Very big group with high physical damage can kill you really fast

Variants Edit

Notes Edit

  • Getting a bigger mob will help you kill faster the foe you want, especially if you want to kill a boss for green items or elite tomes.
  • Once you dont have more than 3-5 foes to kill it is recomended to grab new aggro to kill them or just get a new group with more enemies
  • Farm Areas or Bosses (I will keep on adding places where you can farm)
  • Nightfall:
  • Plains of Jarin(HM):
  • Suneh stormbringer'(for elite elementalist tomes)
  • Hassin Softskin(for elite paragon tomes)
  • Zehlon Reach(HM):
  • Rahti Flower of Dread(for elite mesmer tomes)
  • Brood Mother Kalwameh(for elite monk tomes)
