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.
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: http://gw2skills.net/editor/en/?fYAQR... 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.
