Posted 08 December 2012 - 09:47 PM
1 .What are some traits that would help me. I wouldnt want to go all Toughness as I also want damamge.
2. What are the Utility skills that I should use?

For skills you'll want Withdraw if you prefer to evade damage by dodging (synergizes well with Vigorous Recovery in the Acrobatics Tree) or Hide in Shadows if you prefer to prevent damage by going under stealth. Other Utility skills are Roll for Initiative which lets you dodge/evede attacks and gives you initiative so you can use your damage skills more.
Depending on your weapons you get your choice of survibility, double dagger thieves can either evade with death blossom (also the main damage skill for Condition dmg builds) or stealth with cloak and dagger, the latter also applies to builds with dagger as off-hand. Builds with Pistol as off-hand have access to Blind in the 5th slot.

Ambush and knockdown trap are your friends here as well as caldrops and shadowstep. Equip ranged, and go for anything that helps you kite, just read Utility description and it will come to your mind.
Later when u get "the feel" look around for some meele stuff
Its also nice, coz you will try diffirent playstyles, so your not gonna play with same weapon/utilities thru whole lvling process.

Once you hit level 20, and want to go more stealthy, you can put your points in Shadow Arts for the blind-on-stealth. This makes builds like P/D and S/D super effective. However, stealth builds are almost entirely single-target, so you'll find it slow going for a while.
But yeah--get Caltrops.

The Minion's Thief discussion thread - even if you don't use one of his builds - is fascinating and useful insight into using a thief successfully.
