I am always impressed by people who find ways to take advantage of stuff like that.
yeah i had no idea what signets were or that we could get them til i tried this out lol heres a really good vid showing the playstyle of the spec. im not sure why he has such little hp, he says the spec hes running makes it that way but i ran the same spec and had about 4k more HP then him.. also i switched my gear out for the straight dmg set rather then the condition set they start you off with
yeah that build is kinda fun, but I like to use a shortbow instead of the huge crits so I can kite away from everything while AoEing for 1.5-2k per hit :D
Problem is with 11k hp you get killed if someone gets a gap closer and CC off on you, but usually you can dodge those in time.
Dual daggers are my secondary set with the crit+dmg sigils so I can shadowstep in and finish ppl off with heartseeker when possible. I read somewhere that the sword backstab is less powerful than dagger, otherwise I might try sword/dagger as secondary set for the extra CC (the bleed from death blossom is useless with a crit spec)
If the guy in the video was using his elite more he'd be much more effective btw, turning ppl to stone is really strong :)

@Fluffball: Yeah, you "can" do it on purpose... I'm just not sure that spreading conditions will be that much more effective than stacking them on a single target and killing it faster. Spreading conditions worked well in GW1, but they might have changed the balance now especially with conditions stacking now whereas they used not to stack at all.
@Raww: Same build? Or build with similar theorycraft? Might be that he spent literally everything on damage and crits and kept nothing for life?
i copied the build he used from the site, so yeah thats why i dont get how he has such little hp
If I "can" cripple multiple charging melee and I am ranged, I "will" do so.
