Best Skills Combinations for Crossbow and Dagger DPS Build TL

Combining your chosen skills is the best way to get the most out of their effects and maximize your potential. There are a few great Skills Combinations you can use, in order to deal massive damage and increase your DPS. Some of the Best Skills Combos for the Crossbow and Dagger DPS Build in Throne and Liberty are:

  • Nimble Leap+Inject Venom+Mortal Mark+Quick Fire. Nimble Leap to activate Nature’s Power and boost you damage, Inject Venom to enhance your attacks with Poison, Mortal Mark to weaken your target and Quick Fire to deal even more damage to Weakened enemies. You can add Knife Throwing or Wind Snatcher to the combo to further debuff your targets.
  • (Nimble Leap+)Inject Venom+Thorn Gale+Mortal Mark+Quick Fire. You can start this combo with Nimble Leap if it is ready to boost your damage, then Inject Venom to enhance your attacks with Poison, Thorn Gale to shoot double projectiles and basically double your DPS.
  • (Nimble Leap+)+Inject Venom+Thorn Gale+Merciless Barrage. This combo deals massive damage thanks to the multiple attacks of Merciless Barrage. Be careful when to use it though. Barrage fires in a straight line and can hit other targets. Great against stationary enemies with clear Line of Sight. You can again start the combo with Nimble Leap for a bigger boost to damage.
  • Inject Venom+Nimble Leap+Recoil Shot. Enhance your attacks with Poison, Nimble Leap to boost your damage and Recoil Shot three times to finish enemies!

Staying Mobile and applying your poison to enemies is the trick to deal massive damage and boost your DPS! These are of course only a few powerful combos you can use with the Build. You can mix and match the above skills in any way you like, as long as they deal massive Burst Damage.

How to Play Crossbow and Dagger DPS Build – Gameplay Tips

This Crossbow and Dagger DPS Build, relies on mobility and high burst damage from close to mid range. Applying your Poison effects to your targets is vital to wear them down and kill them with your rapid fire. Use Nimble Leap to trigger Nature’s Power Passive and boost your damage. Likewise always use Inject Venom to enhance your attacks with Poison! Slow down your enemy with Wind Snatcher and Knife Throwing, debuff with Mortal Mark and deal damage with Quick Fire, Merciless Barrage and Recoil Shot.

Shadow Strike is an excellent mobility skill that can teleport you to your target’s location, immobilize and debuff them, allowing you to escape and crowd control more efficiently. Camouflage Cloak is your stealth ability, that you can use to hide and break aggro from enemies. Use Mana Exchange to restore Mana!

Crossbow and Dagger DPS Build Pros and Cons Throne and Liberty

This is a great Build if you enjoy fast paced combat, high mobility and deadly Poison attacks! The Build relies on speed and attack speed to destroy enemies fast. All your Skill combos focus on boosting your damage with mobility skills and poisoning your targets. Like this you can move around and melt enemies faster. The Build has a moderate to high Mana consumption but nothing you cannot handle with potions and Mana Exchange.

To deliver your damage reliably you will have to stay relatively closer to your target, which might expose you to danger. Also the Build lacks a reliable self heal method, other than Potions. Since its base Health is rather low, you will have to be extra careful in harder PVE content.

ProsCons
High MobilityMid to Close Range
Massive Burst DamageLow Base Health
Several CC and Debuff effectsNo Self Heal
Moderate Mana Consumption
