Ummm..Yeah. I can say I wasn't interested after briefly playing the original GW a few years ago. This looks pretty awesome.

Thief is fun but extremely vulnerable if you suck at dodging.

That's true of all the classes as there are not tanks.

If someone buys a book, then sells that book to another. The publisher gets nothing. The used video game market should work the exact same way.

I found the Thief to be the hardest class to play so far. In the first BWE I took Guardian, Elementalist, Ranger, Warrior, and Engineer to Lvl 10+. On the stress test day I took Thief and Mesmer to 5+. Next BWE I plan to take Thief and Mesmer to 10+ and work on Necromancer getting into 10+ as well. The classes in the first BWE I maxed all weapons and on stress test I got 4-5 weapons maxed. Thief I honestly figured would play like a WoW Rogue or DAoC Shadowblade/Hunter. However, I was very wrong and it showed in my attempts to play the class. Short Bow and 1hd Sword based builds are what felt a little cumbersome to me. Mainly the Short Bow as Cluster Bomb -> Detonate is very awkward in fast combat and Trick Shot has a very weird feel to it's range. Still fun to play, but needs extra time from what I have seen to be done well.

I think Thief is the most broken class in PVP at the moment, like really horrible, according to post on Reddit, a few other places. Hopefully they fix it, it does look to be exciting.
