first of all this shall not get into a whining thread or something similiar.
Still my question is, what role can the thief fit in, in higher dungeons?
I am asking this because lately i feel more and more useless compared to other classes in Dungeons. And i also doubt that its because of my playstyle or else, since im playing thief since beta and running quite a few different builds. Also no one ever complained about me in party. Still this personal feeling of uselessness wont go away.
So now you surely can say we can maintin as damagedealer, where i would counter with mesmer, which can deal impressive Damage which isnt too far away from ours. Also they have quiete a big set of tools, which helps the entry party a lot.
About support we dont have to talk, since we cant add a stable set of support tools to the party, and even if we find some, im pretty sure guardians, engineers, and so on can do better.
What i havent tested now is the thief as tank, but here i also hardly believe we can reach the survivability and controll skills of other classes.
So my question is, in which partyslot do you see your party compared to other classes, or if you maybe also think thief is rendered more and more useless.
I also would appreciate any tips and builds which could remove my current sadness with while playing the thief
