Thief is never coming. Rogue and Ninja coming instead.

Rogue is "like Thief" but is no longer a thief because it contradicts with the game's lore or some bull**** apparently.

Ninja focuses on poisons.

Rogue is a dual-wielding class but also isn't because it is like Pugilist where your weapon is a single slot.

The logic is that it wouldn't make sense for a Thieves' Guild to be allowed within a city, so the Rogues Guild are basically thieves who have a front as a legitimate guild, but are still thieves at heart.

Ninjas get increased battle movement speed and apparently their own ninja like running animation. Straight dps class. I predict bad things for the duty finder come 2.4

Rogue is mostly poisons, Ninja is poisons + Ninjutsu (which you will need to combine weaponskills)

So nice, a dot focused melee class. Couldnt be happier.

EDIT: If Ninja shares a lot of the same EQ as Monk endgame, I'll be even happier.

Wonder if they'll reveal the gun class as well.
