One of the main reasons [mod edit] I had decided I wouldn't buy GW2 was their thief interpretation early on seemed to be of the highly mobile ninja rather than the stealthy assassin. I prefer the stealthy assassin and was disappointed by that view.
But I'm hearing that more recently the trait changes have made the thief character the more traditional stealth based thief of other MMOs. Is this true? If so, I might actually consider jumping back on the bandwagon again LOL.
GW2 "built from the ground up with microtransactions in mind"
1) Cash->Gems->Gold->Influence->WvWvWBoosts = PAY2WIN
2) Mystic Chests = Crass in-game cash shop advertisements
