Best anti-tank stamblade pvp sets?

Ganking squishy players has become boring, it’s more satisfying when ganking a dk instead. I’ve seen a video of this player ripping through DKs and templars with sea serpent coil at 35k+ health. They were using onslaught for 100% penetration followed up with blood for blood at really low health.

Is it better to go with proc sets or max stat sets?

    Well, Caluurion has been nerfed, so not that.

    I've been hit pretty hard with the non-DOT portion of Deadlands Assassin, e.g. for 6K against a squishy build. As far as I can see it does not have the obligatory 1s delay that many sets have. It's also stat-dense for a proc set, e.g. 458 wd / sd plus a line of stamina. Maybe combine with Vateshran 2H back bar, since that also procs from a heavy attack.

    Snipers seem to go for Scavenging Demise, but that has a long telegraph and can be dodged.

    Rush of Agony is more of a bomber / AOE group play set, but I've been solo ganked with it also. Ambush into an ultimate (Incap, Tether, anything that stuns) lets you combine the ulti with the proc and an execute within 0.6 GCDs. If your ulti lands and stuns, the target can't react. It also does that annoying pull, which should help keeping the target close after Ambush.

    Can't combine deadlands assassin and vate 2h anymore

    If they use sea serpents coil, and are doing a low hp onslaught gank, then they likely have twice born fury (below 50 percent hp gives tons of crit and crit damage) maybe combined with a weapon damage set, or a proc damage set like flame blossom

    Greetings,

    After further review we have decided to move this thread to a category we think is more appropriate for this topic.

    Thank you for your understanding.
