  • Power Damage
The Power Daredevil has great sustained DPS, great burst on stacked trash mobs, good single target burst, brings excellent crowd control and offers Stealth, which paired with top tier mobility thanks to
,
and
can enable fast skips in T4s. Daredevil has a very simplistic rotation, which makes it fairly easy to play, but due to initiative and energy management, Daredevil becomes quite hard to master.
In fractals Daredevil falls behind other classes for several reasons:
  1. First reason is
    , which forces Daredevil to constantly attack from behind or flank, which in some scenarios is not possible. (Note: with the latest balance patch, keen observer got buffed, and with at least 204 Agony Resistance Daredevil no longer needs to flank).
  2. Next reason is
    , which depending on your group composition you may not receive as much of a damage bonus as you would in raids where 10 players put more condis to be on the boss.
  3. Because of
    , you may be pushing your teammates on fractals with Mistlock Instability: Social Awkwardness instability into deadly zones.

can only hit 3 targets. So on big groups of trash mobs you should just spam
and then finish them with
.
Another amazing shortbow skill is
(Shortbow 2). It is a blast finisher with a low initiative cost. Use it to blast Might and Stealth with fire and smoke fields respectively.
Keep in mind you can precast skills like
,
or

, take mistlock, cast
, and swap to
again.
