So how similar to the WoW thief is the GW2 thief? Because I tried multiple times to level up a thief in WoW and could never get one past level 5. I just really don't like the stealth play style. It's too slow for my tastes. ****, even in Oblivion I only made a thief to do the Assassin's Guild quests.
Last night I finally looked into crafting. Wow. I am really impressed by what they did with it via the discoveries and stuff. Also reading that you could take a character from level 1 to 80 simply by leveling all of the crafting skills, that's pretty freaking cool.
