I was trying to PUG some Arah runs (paths 1, 2 and 3) and got kicked from like 3-5 groups before even entering the dungeon.
Why are people still under the illusion that Thieves suck in PvE? Why do people think War x3 Mes and Guard is still the best composition? Especially in Arah where stealth running is like; OP.
I'd understand it better if Thief couldn't do what Axe/ Mace + GS Warrior can, but a Thief can.
Melee cleave, stack might, stack vulnerability, mobility (run from boss to boss/ stealth).
Aside from Banner of Strength/ Discipline and For Great Justice (which you'd get anyway if you had 2 Warriors) what can a third Warrior do that is so so so so much better than a Thief?
You can't really argue that their DPS is superior anymore (the new update to initiative passive regeneration makes Pistol Whip literally spam-able forever).
Thief also have access to blind and a spammable blast finisher, which can be incredibly helpful when clearing trash.
15-20k 100 blades every 6.5-8s isn't more than 3-4 pistol whips/ backstabs.
I think Engies are kinda in the same boat. They stack might, are the best vulnerability stackers, have mobility and lots of blast finishers and are also vastly underestimated.
Anyone care to explain?
