Single Targets

If you’re lucky enough to open up on your opponent in stealth, Ambush should be your first option.

You will be using this the majority of the time. Whenever your not in stealth, you should be spamming it for combo points.

Use when target is below 35% or when Blindside procs from Mutilate.

Slice and Dice
Cast as soon as you can, and keep it up. It should automatically stay up with the Cut to the Chase talent.

Try and get as many combo points as possible before using it, and keep refreshing when it’s about to go down.

Only cast when you have 5 combo points. It will keep Slice n Dice up.


Multiple Targets

Fan of Knives
If you have a lot of mobs on you, spam this.

Crimson Tempest
Once you get 5 combo points from using FoK, use Crimson Tempest to spend them.
