PS: Glytch is throw gunk on a thief different then it is on a ranger? Because when i used it it hit the guy and like exploded to everyone around them as well, it did no field but i believe it created a blast effect...
also there is no burst trait with it either
steals are more like environmental weapons, they have the same effects (like a lava rock steal is the same as an environmental lavarock, might be different on damage tho)
tho one of them is axe, which is basically an aoe channeled axe like the warrior move
funnily enough i can steal that from a ranger =)
more specifically, i select a part i want to use while holding down shift, to make it a perfect square. then i crop this part (deleting the whole rest) and change the picture size to 100x100 pixels.
after that, in case you are interested, i usually use the sharpen-tool and sometimes brightness/contrast and lighting corrections, which all help to make the picture look more clear and defined, even at this small size.
also, borders! they are awesome. i make them by selecting 1-pixel wide of the pic on every side and color it black (duh ^^) then select 1-pixel wide again just next to that first simple border. i color this 2nd selection black too, but on another layer, which i then reduce to somewhere between 15% and 50% opacity. that gives the border a softer look and makes the picture stand out better.
lastly, i use the save-for-web option to save it as jpg with somewhere around 70-95% quality to put it just below 10kb (mmo-champion now allows 20kb, but there isn't really any reason to make it bigger unless it's animated. the quality loss is literally unnoticeable)

And not surprised you can steal axes from rangers, i'm still trying to figure out where my ranger keeps all his axes myself, wouldn't be surprised if you got em quite commonly xD
PS: Did you know you can steal a rifle from ranger pets? I reported that as a bug since my pet, to my knowledge, does not carry a rifle on hand, but everytime a thief (Player or npc) would steal from him they'd get a rifle that'd knock them down and launch their target
Feels like pistol damage is lacking big time from the vids I've seen.
I tried making a Charr thief in the last BWE, but I felt incredibly squishy and the heal felt like it took forever to recharge. What I want to know is, does it get better? I played a warrior up to level 18 and had a blast, I felt reasonably powerful and sturdy. I don't expect the thief to be able to eat as much damage as the warrior, but was the thief reasonable enough while solo?
