Burglar Builds

80 Trait Point Starter Builds (Updated December 2020)

Red - https://i.imgur.com/ME8t7CB.png
This build focuses on leveling and filling in as the DPS role in group content. I recommend first filling out the red line, then moving into the blue line traits.

This build focuses on leveling and offering a hybrid-type playstyle with some support built in via self-buffs and debuffs.

Yellow - https://i.imgur.com/OVUrfiC.png
This build focuses on maximizing support through debuffs while acquiring useful DPS-boosting traits in the red line. Note: if you do not have this many trait points, it is worth considering getting more trick and trick removal boosts in the yellow line. The red line traits are only worthwhile if you can at least get Flashing Blades.
