Do you want to go fast? Well it's hard to go much faster than this build thanks to its very high movespeed, a short cooldown on Shift and most of our damage coming from skills with the movement tag. In fact, it hardly ever wants to stop! You would think with so much speed there has to be a downside, but the Shadow Dagger Bladedancer also has great damage and excellent defenses. It truly has no weakness, making it one of the best builds in the game.
To deal our damage we proc Shadow Daggers from Umbral Blades, Smoke Bomb, Shadow Cascade and Synchronized Strike. Despite using so many skills we're able to maintain the high speed playstyle by casting Umbral Blades with Shift and Shadow Cascade through both Shift and Synchronized Strike. This minimizes our need to stop, keeping us on the move even while we blast through enemies.
Shadow Daggers has excellent scaling from Siphon of Anguish, and our defenses are turbo charged from Smoke Weaver, Wings of Argentus and Bastion of Honour, but this build scales so well that none of them are necessary to get sufficient damage and survivability.
Overall, Shadow Daggers Bladedancer is a great build for any type of content. It excels at clearing Monolith Echoes fast but the speed and tankiness also make it great for Dungeons and Arena. If you like the playstyle, you really can't go wrong with this build!
