    A little about my MMO experiences in all games I've played so far:

    I'm always drawn to heavy armor wearing melee characters. In every game I play, the first character I make is a heavy armor wearing melee type. However, in every game I've played so far, I end up disappointed with the heavy armor wearing melee type. I then make a caster, the more fire the better.

    I expected GW2 to be the same. I wanted to make a warrior but instead decided I would go straight for the elementalist, because I figured that's where I'd end up anyway.

    I buckled and made the warrior first despite history suggesting I should do otherwise. This is where it gets strange. I LOVE the warrior. This is the first game I've played the heavy armor wearing melee type and actually enjoyed it.

    So yes, I made a warrior as my first main, and I love it. I am not disappointed at all.

    Sometimes stuff just thinks about looking at my ele and she kills herself just to avoid the inevitable :P. It's a really big toolbox to deal with though, and I'm still learning.

    I did the first instance yesterday and the whole group was dropping like flies, so I don't think it's just me.

    I expected my Ele to be a bit more potent.

    Necro, and no, not in the slightest. It's still the only character I have above like 4. I'm 43 on it atm. Absolutely love it. Hate using the staff though. It's pretty much the only thing I have for aoe combat though. It's marks are just boring to me. Hate using it.

    Nope! My Guardian is 46 and I haven't wanted to stop playing him since 9PM EST on pre-launch night. The only issue I'm having right now is how to build him. I know I want a support character so I've been thinking Staff & Sword/Shield but the traits all seem so darn good! D:< I wouldn't call options disappointment though!

    I think every profession has weapons like that. The love/hate relationship and all.

    I fully dislike Scepter and Staff on my Guardian.
    I can't seem to find a specific set of weapons on my Warrior that I like outside of Axes and the Greatsword... but I don't want to stick to the Greatsword, because my Guardian already runs around with one. Trying to like Axe/Axe, but the animations just aren't as satisfying - and I can't find any Swords with non-bland models yet.

    Yeah, I planned on playing a Necromancer, but stopped at level 15. Rolling a Guardian right now.

    Just some 2h-sword skills are bad, 3,4 and 5 are just meh.

    I planned on rolling a warrior and I'm exceptionally happy with him rifle / greatsword combo gives me virtually two classes to play at the same time! Very very happy

    My mesmer is pretty weak when solo-ing in PVE. While my clones can help tank for me, I can't deal enough damage to make my clones survive long enough.

    PVP is fun on my thief though. I feel like while my class may not be as both strong or tanky as a warrior, I make up for it in ultility and speed.

    Clones are not really suppose to tank for you like a rangers pet, they are more of a distraction. They are suppose to die.

    Try grabbing the signet which increases illusion health and the trait that applys conditions when clones die.

    What weapon are you using on your Mesmer? Are you shattering for damage then re-summoning phantasms when they are almost dead?

    i love greatsword warrior, that's what i've been doing 95% of my leveling as. 3 and 4 are my favorite skills personally, the thing I don't like about 5 is that you don't do the slash immediately after reaching them, it has this weird window where you keep running into them for a second. 2 is cool but having to stand still for it kinda sucks though i admit it would probably be OP if you could channel it while moving

    I love my thief. Also there are plenty of stealth of stealth abilities you just have to spec into them if stealth is your thing.

    So i'll get straight to the point. As someone who always plays rogue/thief types in MMOs (FFXI for 3-4 years, WoW for 5+) and other games that aren't MMOs (online and off), I've found the thief in GW2 to be quite disappointing. Stealth plays such a tiny role that it hardly feels like a thief/rogue class, and honestly I feel a bit too inclined to use pistol/dagger & shortbow in pvp while focusing on bleed damage as my seemingly best option. The damage feels too based on bleeds and the burst seems lacking for the class in general. There are also too few weapon choices for thief, give them axes or maces or even a 2h sword would be very interesting imo.

    Despite this, I still play and level my thief sometimes (mostly because I feel obligated as someone who always plays the type and my brain keeps telling me it'll get better at some point), but to my surprise I've been enjoying warrior quite a bit so I'll probably be sticking with that unless something changes to the thief class.

    edit: this thread isn't just about thieves, but feel free to discuss it or whatever class you feel like
    If I remember correctly, stealth has 0% to do with thief in FFXI. There was none at all :P
