    Burglar Virtues

    I was wondering what the best virtues were to slot in the following instances:
    Solo PvE
    Solo PvP
    Group PvE

    I could not find anything (recent) having to do with burglar virtues - never was good at search boxes though.
    Thanks in advance!

    Yeah, I would like to know this as well!

    Not an expert, but I think we should stack resistances and mitigations on virtues

    Re: Burglar Virtues

    In my experience which is limited mostly to solo play and not so much PvP (though I have looked alot into this in theory ) some of the best are:

    Zeal and Valour for the morale mainly.

    Innocence, Charity, Compassion, Tolerance and Honour for restances and mitigations.

    Can play around with these and for the Moors stacking tactical mitigation seems the way to go as discussed in other threads on the subject.

    I try to fill out some gaps by stacking tactical and physical mitigation, power, armor, resistance, vitality and a bit of fate. There's enough agility to go around as it is, and +morale virtues often have undesirable secondary or even primary bonuses like might or non-combat morale regen. Zeal is great, but mine is only rank 5. :/

    Mostly solo PvE.
    I have two burgs. Both have the same Virtues although one (Man) is Quiet Knife the other (hobbit) is Gambler.

    Used to run with Valour, switched it out for Zeal (morale, melee mit).

    Compassion (ranged mit)
    Innocence (melee mit)
    Empathy (armor)
    Determination (agility)

    Just as an example of how hardy this is, I recently did the 'Save the ranger from the Shadow wolves' quest in Enedwaith (one of the first ones you do). Had no problem with either burg, taking down the last boss wolf.

    My Hunter did not fair so well, even died the first time. Not sure why, since both the burgs and the hunter have medium armor, but the boss wolf tore my hunter a new one. Died the first time and then I barely survived WITH the man heal on second attempt (with much kiting). Might be the burgs had more firepower than the hunter (hard to believe I know), or the aggro was more on the hunter than the burgs. Hunter has lower zeal and loyalty instead of determination and something other (not sure atm) than Innocence. (All were level 66 when doing it)

    Re: Burglar Virtues

    With the game as it stands now, the primary purpose of your virtuesfor Group/Raid content is to provide the mitigations and some extra morale necessary to keep you alive.

    For Draigoch and most trash, you are taking primarily physical damage, and thus you should be traiting for physical mitigation. My 75s (Hunter, Burglar, Captain) trait:

    Compassion, Innocence (highest P-Mit values), Charity, Zeal (next highest P-Mit values plus morale from Zeal, and Valour (morale).

    When fighting bosses and in the moors, you are taking primarily tactical damage, and thus you should be traiting for tactical mitigation. My guys trait:

    Tolerence, Fidelity (highest T-Mit values), Honour (next highest), and I keep Zeal and Valour for morale.

    Just my opinion for what it is worth
