Looking At The Thief In GW2:
If you are going to play the Thief in GW2 then you will use a resource called initiative and you will always have at least one initiative free ability that will not cost anything to use.
The unique thing about the Thief is that you will be able to steal things from enemies and other players. They will give you unique abilities that you can use once. The item or ability you get depends on your enemies’ level and the weapon they have.
You will also be one of the faster professions and of course you have a stealth mode which is handy.
The main thing you need to watch for with the Thief is the weapon you use in your main and off hand as with this profession it matters a lot what weapons you have equipped as it will change your skills.
