    take a closer look, guys.
    thieves now have 12 initiative instead of 10. they didn't "nerf" the trait, they BUFFED all thieves

    i think it will be worth using for several builds that rely on high initiative and/or have a lot of regen and stuff.

    I didn't notice this when playing the game. Was this after the beta?

    I've seen people making this claim, but I've also seen people say they've adjusted skill costs (such as saying that CnD and Unload now each cost 6)

    No, it isnt! I had 12 initiative in the beta! Just seen on one of my screenshots. Oh my, that's fantastic!

    I'm having a hard time justifying any other weapon besides dual pistol though, with bow as my weapon swap for aoe. Just solid damage, nice control, and an on-demand target-able blink/stealth. Am I just missing something about the other weapon combos?
    I loved the Dual Pistol/Shortbow combo as well I need to practice a bit with the bow to get more proficient in using it but it gives you a very well rounded skillset with these two weapons. Condition damage bleed stacking double dagger builds offered tons of damage but I preferred the pistols.

    Huh. Well, I'd never noticed it, but that's bad-ass.

    To quote Sheldon Cooper from one of the bowling episodes: PRAISE JESUS.... as my mother would say.

    So, you're saying something that Sheldon's saying his mum says? Bangception.

    On a more on-topic note, count the diamonds!

    i think cnd is 6, yeah. but i think that was mainly intended to nerf "perma stealth" and similar things. generally skill costs seemed to be the same.

    My main problem is that the actual image is... well, huge. I wanted the whole shot of her, but I couldnt get it without squishing =( I suck at stuff like that. (My thumb is, apparently, brilliant at taking fantastic screenshots when I'm not looking.)

    This is the original image:



    (Which is all over this site by now >.>)

    Yup, I can confirm all thieves have 12 initiative now, and CnD costs 6 which makes it hurt so much when it misses >.>

    it's pretty much impossible to get a good looking face and most of a persons body on a 100x100 pic =/
    i usually just focus on the face.
    (My thumb is, apparently, brilliant at taking fantastic screenshots when I'm not looking.)
    very nice indeed!
    *applauds Emily's thumb*

    so, here are two new ones:



    didn't know if you would like the brighter version, so i just posted both.

    Oh wow, those are brilliant. Thank you so much ^_^

    I ended up taking 245 screenshots in total, but about a hundred of them have graphical errors, which is sad. The thing is, on the high-res ones, the dimensions are 5200x3000. They seem to get shrunken a little when I put them on photobucket, so at least they dont massively stretch the forums =3

    Very much off topic, but it won't shrink them as much so there you go. :P

    Thieves were annoying in PvP.
    Not because they beat me, but because I couldn't beat THEM.
    It's extremely frustrating to get someone to 5% HP just to have them stealth and ditch, and it happens A LOT in GW2 combat due to their combat stealth not seeming to have nearly as long as a CD as WoW's vanish.

    there is no difference between in-combat and out-of-combat for stealth in gw2. all stealth abilities work in either situation. they all only last for 3-5sec though, with traits.

    That was my favorite part about PvPing on a Thief . I felt like you could escape from some crazy situations, the best advice I could give for finishing them off is saving your cc and stuns for when they hit low health and even if you cant see them go ahead and use aoes. Conditions are also really good for finishing them off as bleeds hit hard and last quite awhile, I always had to remember to leave the fight earlier than I wanted vs necros because of all the conditions.

    I'm aware of the mechanics of the thief, my point was that due to these mechanics thieves were unbelievably annoying to kill in PvP.
    Especially when you consider that if you killed one you usually ended up having to finish him twice, due to their whole 'lol I don't like being finished' mechanic.

    It was just frustrating, as I could BEAT them consistently but rarely KILL them.
    Which is just frustrating to play against.
