1. Strengths

  • Easy rotation 
  • Good CC through Basilisk Venom (up to 750 breakbar dmg)

2. Weaknesses

  • Very low DPS
  • Requires fights without Permanent Reveal Buff

3. Current Viability

With the August 8, 2017 Balance Patch D/D Thief received a small buff in the form of Twin Fangs. The trait got reworked to the following functionality:

  • Side Strikes and Flawless Strikes got fused together making Twin Fangs give 7% Crit dmg and 7% Crit chance.
  • Due to having more crit chance Spider Venom took over Signet of Agility as we don’t need any more precision.

These changes boosted D/D Thief’s DPS but not enough to compete for a DPS spot.
