Rev DPS vs Survivalbility
Sword/Shield + Staff is pretty good for 1v1… In a zerg use hammer over staff
I make PvP & WvW videos
Sadly, thief is the main counter to revenant, so always expect an uphill battle.
What I recommend is a switch to staff and sword/shield. Staff has excellent utility and is imo, a must have weapon for any revenant build. As for switching to jalis from shiro, it’s a tough call, without shiro you lose access to a reliable stunbreak because jalis has only one and costs 50 energy. Jalis Is easier to learn revenant if you are new, try it until you feel more comfortable and then try shiro again.
