Many players may encounter the same situation that it is pretty difficult when confronting plural monsters just like me at the initial stage, moreover, I always killed by three or more monsters, especially when we stay at the skill point, there will often be an elite boss and two monsters. In my opinion, I'm affraid it is only the guardians that can survive before level 20. So, we will analyze the detail today, whether it's the reason of low level or skill and skill combinations. Let's take a look at how will the thief fights when encountering plural monster at early period.
Sword and Pistol
Generally speaking, the most often method is the third skill pistol whip and heal skill signet of malice. While there is a disadvantage of this method: we can only run away when meeting more than three monsters. This is not only the reason of signet of malice recovering less blood, but the thief has to bear under the condition of siege. My advice is using the caltrops, with which we can scatter countless caltrops to make the foes disable and bleeding.
I am of the point that we can add haste on this weapon combination in order to accelerate the exporting efficiency. Use the Black Powder at the beginning and pistol whip to chop with evading effect attached. The key point is we should use the haste and pistol whip at the same time, as a result, we can generate plenty of export and wipe out all the enemies with single sword. However, it will make our vitality empty; we need to pull the distance away.
Pistol and Dagger
When facing plural monsters, the forth skill dancing dagger is a wonderful skill, which can catapult among the foes to cause damage. It can not only slow down the enemies, but keep the distance between the foes and us. If you want to sneak attack the monsters, the fifth skill shadow shot will be much practical. In the real operation, I prefer to use the first skill sneak attack and shadow shot in that it can save points with perfect effect.
As far as I am concerned, it's important to run. If you are not good at running, it is not advised to use this build at the initial stage.
With regard to this build, you can use short bow twice and the second skill cluster bomb and the choking gas. This two cause damage with bomb when there are three or more monsters in a range. If we choose landmine at this moment, we can cast it while running along the circles on the ground.
If you are a freshman, this build suits you best in the early period. Caltrops and the death blossom are very useful. Use signet of malice once you need to supply blood. The more the monsters, the better this build performs, note that not being hit down.
The combat method is very simple. Cast the caltrops when the monster came over and release death blossom when they came near. When there are caltrops on the floor, as long as the monster moves, it will bleeding and decelerate, on the contrary, we will recover blood.
Well, the above is all my builds of thief fighting with plural monsters, some of them are the choices on the weapon and others are what we need to explore. Choose the best build suits you most at initial stage will be better.
