    That makes me feel like a noob. I haven't even started on any crafting... ;_;

    Meh. I always start a new MMO off with tradeskills. That way I can be a primary supplier for those folks who feel it necessary to race to "end game" and then sit there in need of consumables and such while they battle to be the "best" until the next expansion. :)

    Btw.. Dunno if anybody else is using these tools.. Gw2 Lore & Build Vault (both iPhone apps.. Not sure if there are android versions as well). There's a new section in Lore for people's tested builds that you can toy with on the fly with build vault. Found a great crit thief build I'm going to try out next! :)

    My main in LOTRO is a much beloved Burg and I couldn't stay away from the thief class in GW2, so I have switched my main to my Thief, and his trait lines at level 37 are:

    Deadly Arts (10) - Serpent's Touch (Stealing applies poison for 10 seconds) - Sundering Strikes (40% chance to cause vulnerability for 5 seconds on a critical hit)

    Critical Strikes (7) - Keen Observer (Critical hit chance is increased by 5% while health is over 90%)

    Trickery (10) - Kleptomaniac (Stealing gives you 3 initiative) - Flanking Strikes (Increase Damage by 5% when attacking a foe from behind or the side)

    I run double daggers with Hide in Shadows, Roll for Initiative, Radiation Field, Signet of Agility, and Thieves Guild equipped. I focus predominantly on stacking Precision and Power, with Vitality as the preferred backup stat. :)

    My thief is still my favorite, so I'm probably going to work him exclusively for a while. I'm aiming for condition damage:

    30 Shadow Arts
    15 Acrobatics
    25 Trickery

    Also using double daggers. Planned skills are hide in shadows, caltrops, shadow refuge, shadowstep, and basilisk venom.
