Does anyone know if a dagger thief can throw their dagger through different fields to have healing, fire damage, ice damage etc? I am sure it does but it seems like bullets and arrows are always used in those examples.
the projectile takes only 1 effect to the enemy

I think what he was asking is if he can do cross-profession combos with a dagger, instead of being forced to use a ranged weapon.
I'm sure there's something. I mean, a warrior can whirlwind through some fire and become a fire tornado, I don't see why they would neglect to add anything to dagger thieves.
In that blog post linked above there is an example of a dagger/dagger thief finisher. Leaping death blossom through a symbol of faith removes conditions from allies near the target. It is under the cross profession combos section.
"So what happens when a finisher meets an initiator? Here are some examples to get you excited. Use Ricochet through a Firewall to get a bouncing axe that has a chance to burn the targets it hits. Leaping Death Blossom through a Symbol of Faith will remove conditions from allies near your target. Stomp inside a Smoke Screen to cloak nearby allies. This is just a small sampling of what you can do with combos, and we leave it to you to find them all and combo to your heart’s delight."
As for specifically throwing a dagger, I have never seen a dev talk about using the offhand dagger thrown cripple dancing dagger as a finisher, but it is possible that the skill could work through a field from what we have seen so far.
