To be honest I'm playing my thief more than ever before, but that's not becuase anything of what's been said before is wrong but because playing thief feels like playing and not like "placing the drink on 1 and going AFK".... of course I stay away of any dungeon where stacking ussually happens.
I agree with this; if I already have a warrior in my party I will roll thief because I love me some stealin' and massive domoge with muh sliec-o-knief.

Developer's are the police and exploits are just hiccups in code that, until truly abused, many are not necessarily concerned with and some are completely invisible to their eyes.
Don't be a ♥♥♥♥t. That is an insanely lazy way to develop if you think that's true. They should be on top of things- hoping they didn't fug up the first time, and if they did, fixing it as soon as it's noticed. Why should we be penalised for a developer's bad work?

Consumer honesty is universal. Just as you are not expected to torrent music or movies you are also expected to not capitalize on oversights or randomly generated bugs........All exploits hurt players one of two ways: 1. The economy gets ruined. 2. The Balance of Power is completely destroyed.
#2 occurs it's usually in PvP where a bug prevents a skill from working correctly and is to the advantage of the player. I can't think of any off the top of my head that were all that major to me.
I don't know if you played Guild Wars, but this was a pretty big "exploit". It was most certainly an oversight on Anet's part, but it would have gone unnoticed had it not been used. It was nerfed within a day after being abused in Halls. This proves my point on forcing devs to act.
There was also an exploit in very early EotN times that allowed you to have 30 character parties in missions by glitching hero slots. This was not patched until heavily abused by some individuals.
There are many examples of exploits that existed, were well known and subsequently patched. It's the job of the developers to not allow these abuses to exist in their game. Players, like Nike and KING, will abuse whatever mechanics they can to get the most efficient runs.
And just briefly, the torrents are the main reason for legal digital downloads and streaming now. Without it, we'd still be waiting for this convenient service. Again, developer addressing a problem instead of attacking it's userbase. They supplied their users with something they wanted.
That would be superb. Crit Master Talent. "Go for the Eyes!"
I actually doubt it would go into the crit tree, since that would make it too obvious to take. The warrior party buff is out of the way and in tactics, as opposed to Power, for obvious reasons. You wouldn't have to drop self-DPS to gain party DPS. But I like the name!
