Gw2 Thief Sword/Pistol Montage and Guide

    Sooo, with the rubber band ball of emotions currently revolving around the Thief, I just ask that you take this vid and enjoy it for what it is. A montage, and created purely for entertainment.



    AT NPC Snipes: :24 - 7:09 <--Infiltrating Sniper
    Pistol Whip Animation Cancel: 1:18 - 6:18
    Stolen Item Importance: 2:32 - 4:48
    Infiltrators Juke: 1:08 - 3:06
    Badass Sword: 8:22
    Wait for Mist Form: 8:39

    What to expect:
    Overly exaggerated intro (dont worry its not long)
    Decent Ini Management.
    Fun uses with Infiltrators Strike
    Longer fights (was going to do just a kill Montage, but I didn't feel it would give this spec the overview it truly deserves.)
    AT NPC Snipes (Automated Tournaments)
    Decent Gameplay

    What not to Expect:
    Ability Spam
    An appearance by Leroy Jenkins, Bob Saget, or Jackie Chan
    LDB sending me halfway across the map after a kill.

    With that said, the setup is :
    Sword: Sigil of Superior Frailty
    Pistol: Sigil of Superior Strength
    Dagger: Sigil of Superior Doom
    Dagger: Sigil of Intellegence.
    0 Deadly Arts
    20 Critical Strikes: Executioner, Furious Retaliation
    10 Shadow Arts: Infusion of Shadow
    25 Acrobatics: Power of Inertia, Pain Response
    15 Trickery: Uncatchable
    Superior Rune of the Scholar
    Berserker Amulet
    Hide in the Shadows
    Signet of Shadows
    Devourer Venom
    Thieves Guild
    2,004 Power :: 3018 Attack
    1760 Precision :: 44% Crit Chance
    1016 Toughness :: 2080 Armor
    1495 Vitality :: 16,595 HP

    For those who read my guide at the start of beta, yes this is the exact same build.

    I hope you enjoy, and dont forget to sub!

    Commentary/Guide Video Below! *Again, Don't forget to sub! Get that Hex for yourself!

    I just want to pre warn everyone I am really not the commentary kind of guy, but I do want to do my part to help out the community so I tried my best. With that said you will probably get bored with the silent awkward moments, but commentaries just aren't something I shine at.

    I chose 3 of my slower matches, that I really didn't play to well in, and the reason I did this was because I wanted to highlight the early on mistakes I made to help newer people to the build not do the same thing.

    I am not claiming to be a god about the build, just that I know a little bit. If someone new wanted to test this spec out the goal of this vid is to at least give them some understanding of the simple mistakes you can make.

    I hope you enjoy, and can leave this vid learning something.
