Gankers often refer to their mobility skills as their bread and butter. It may be possible that you have enough damage with this build to dismount a player but chasing him and escaping afterwards is part of ganking as well.
Therefore most gankers use weapons and shoes that can cover a lot of distance. Daggers, quarterstaffs, frost. Soldier boots, hunter shoes, miner or quarrier workboots on the shoe slot, these are just a few examples that are commonly used.
Having a balance between offensive and defensive abilites can also be useful, druid robe and specter hood is likely a strong combo for pve activities but it will be hard to profit from it in a pvp scenario.
Yo, this actually helps alot. Thank you so much. Im assuming it's possible to find a viable bow build for like The Hell thing's right?
A generic solo bow ganker build that isn't really in fashion but still can be pulled off would be:
Warbow, mage cowl, assassin jacket, some sort of boots
poison arrow, frost shot as skills, there should be some gameplay of this playstyle somewhere on youtube if you need inspiration.
Currently i'm enjoying to play a bannon build. It is kind of expensive, because some of the items are Corrupted Dungeon meta, but it is still fun.
Im rocking: Caerleon Cape, Specter Hood, Mercenary Jacket, Demon or Soldier Boots and Bow of Badon.
I manage to do some 1v3 and it is a strong build. The Badon E with the Jacket heals me to full in about 3 second if not counterd. Roaming Ava roads I manage to get some kills here and there and survive some ganking attempts, especially when i'm using demon boots. The knockback Q is strong when coupled with the cape and allows good kiting, even against groups. If u have the silver and want to try some different build, just give it a try.
