Wrecking Blow: Main spam skill to use between applying DoTs

Executioner: This skill will be idle until enemies are at 25% health.  At that point this skill becomes your spammable

Piercing Mark: Slotted passive.  This is placed in order to gain benefit of the Assassination line passive

Relentless Focus: increases your crit damage by 2% for every light/heavy attack.  You can choose to use the convert ability for a quick attack, or leave it idle for the extra crit % which remains until you use the skill.

Mirage: damage shield, but used to gain benefit of the Assassination passive line

Ult: Incapacitating Strike: Strong ultimate attack, enemy debuff after strike, and stun if used on max

Stampede: Damage and Damage overtime attack plus gap closer launching you to your target

Dark Shade: 18 second shade pet that will attack your target and causes minor maim

Barbed Trap: Stationary DoT effect.  The trap lasts for 1m and bleeds the target for 18 seconds after contact.  Also grants minor force

Leeching Strikes: light and heavy attacks heal you and restore stamina.

Resolving Vigor: Heal + heal over time

Ult: Incapacitating Strike: Strong ultimate attack, enemy debuff after strike, and stun if used on max

it is understandable that you will not have all of these skills & passives opened as you level...these are the goals to be able to base DPS.  Some skills can be swapped out for other skills if you are soloing.  Open your passives as you can.  Get your Guild lines open so you can open those skills up for later

There are a few different builds you can do for beginner sets.  This set worked very well for leveling through dungeons until getting up to CP160 and getting higher end gear.

Recommend going light armor w/ Medium or heavy helm
