Template code



  • Zealous daggers of defense with "Strength and Honor!".
  • Shield set.
  • Any flat or longbow.



  • Shadow step to your target with Wastrel's Collapse.
  • Maintain your buffs/effects.
  • Use the dagger attack chain Jagged StrikeFox FangsDeath Blossom↺ on recharge.


  • Standard anti-physical.
  • Standard anti-melee.


  • Compared to a WotA Dagger Spammer, this variant provides a more spammable shadowstep, and uses a stance which provides both IMS and IAS, allowing for greater mobility. The trade-off is reduced critical strike occurrences, but this should be offset by the build's greater mobility.
  • Compared to a Shadow Theft Daggers, this variant provides greater versatility, as it takes 3 very powerful utility/resiliency PvE-only skills. It has the potential to have increased mobility compared the Shadow Theft Daggers, but in general, you are left making less give-and-take choices between PvE-only skills. The trade-off of Wastrel's is that it will have slightly reduced damage and critical strike occurrences under ideal conditions.
  • This build does require a small amount of external battery (Blood is Power), but in 2020 it is assume that a BiP will be available, as they are present on many/most meta team setups.
