A write-up on the build is available at my blog: http://wp.me/p2ouuz-2v

In this video I show you some advanced tactics by commentating on some clips where I use Traps on a Sword/Pistol and Sword/Dagger wielding Thief in my Guild Wars 2 structured PvP video series.
Sorry if I talk a little fast in this video; I was a bit sleep deprived and I talk fast when I'm tired.

Check the Basic Build Guide companion-video I also made for this build: http://youtu.be/9_D6JN-zcv8

I go into a lot of detail about what the spec is capable of and really break down the abilities and why I'm using them when I do. Expect lots of freeze-framingslow-motiontext pop-ups and other editing techniques to be used to give you full information on what the low-down is.

This educational video details
- How the Sword mainhand can be used to make up for the Thief's usual weakness in condition removal by using this build's excess initiative with Infiltrator's Strike/Shadow Return.
- How to carefully use your Infiltrator's Strike to chase opponents who would normally be more mobile than you.
- What some of the strengths and weaknesses of a Trap-based Thief build are.

I'm running this spec in the video:
However, I shift around the 5 points in the "Deadly Arts" line since those points aren't mandatory.
I also would like to use the Runes of Adventure set but they frequently broke during BWE3 so I went with Hoelbrak for the increased power.

Thanks for watching. Let me know what you think of the split video format (basics in one video and then advanced tricks). I figure that since there's such a big variance in player knowledge it'll help you guys by letting you get to content tailored to something closer to your own skill level.

Special Thanks to Ammorth from the GW2 Subreddit for helping me with my new, awesome looking tooltips.

Thanks as always for watching!
