There is not much room for changes in a Mutilate build since it has the required 41 points for Mutilate after which we go to Combat tree for Precision, Improved Slice and Dice and Dual Wield Specialization.
One thing to change in the build depending on your current enchants: Improved Poisons should be taken with Cat’s Swiftness, while Fleet Footed should be combined with Dexterity. The reason is that these movement speed effects do not stack. Also, they both provide 8% movement speed bonus.
Due to Mutilate requirements – choice of weapons is Daggers. Slower main-hand dagger with 1.7-1.9 speed and a faster Off-hand dagger.
