The big update for this beta was of course the tiering of skills and traits, which I’m still not a fan of but understand the need for. As a Thief, what this meant was that i was missing 2 very important traits for the build i really enjoyed during the first beta weekend. Having 3 extra initiative and a 60% chance on criticals to cripple with pistols is freaking huge. I’m essentially required to put 30 points into Critical Strikes to get that cripple now and must be level 40 for the extra initiative. I understand why Anet did this and i adapted just fine without, but oh did i miss those 2!
Spent the entirety of Friday night doing nothing but small man WvW. Now normally i wouldn’t feel bad for opponents, but our sever was matched up against 2 new servers. This unfortunately lead to hilarity and hijinks as our group was able to take on and defeat much larger groups since most of us had all of our elite skills.
