Guild Wars 2 reveals the Thief elite specialization, the Daredevil

How can you make a Thief in Guild Wars 2 be even more thiefly? Perhaps you could give Thieves the ability to steal things that don’t actually exist, like your sense of self-esteem, but that would be difficult to manage from a game mechanics perspective. No, a better option would be to make the Thief even more mobile and flexible on the battlefield, which is exactly what the new Daredevil elite specialization will bring to the class in Heart of Thorns.

It’s clear just from the screenshots that the Daredevil liberally employs a stick for hitting people and jumping on. This sums up the specialization in a way, though, with a definite emphasis on mobility and enhanced dodge rolls. You can find out more on the official diary about what the specialization is capable of, and you’ll be able to play with the elite specialization when the game’s next beta weekend opens up in early September.

Crow God AdeptusEnginus Daredevil uses both. He only used sticks exclusively in the Netflix series. Karl_Hungus even posted a picture of it down below. :<

You made the Daredevil fan in me mildly disappointed.

Still hoping for a healer spec thief, but I’m seriously doubting it now.
Someday I’ll live out my fantasy of being a Ninja Doctor. T-T

So with that mod you get increased range on higher terrain?

If top heavy, this is impossible, since the turning point would be awkwardly way higher with it’s higher center of mass

GW2 doesn’t exactly adhere strictly to the laws of physics (terrain not having an affect of range, Warriors blasting people back with shockwaves). Why would this be any different?
