I know I do. Thief was my main profession, but I ended up switching to Druid, and then Ventari Revenant when Anet started making classes heal more. I love playing Healing classes, especially when stealth is involved. I know at this point we are expecting Assassin with Off-Hand sword, but I think we truly can't rule out a healer Espec just yet.
I know it won't happen, but i wish to play a .....
Shadowmancer (The Mage Spec)
Weapon - Scepter
Utility - Glyphs
(Heal) Glyph Of Healing. Create a Healing shadow Sphere with an initial Heal, and a secondary heal after it expires to nearby allies.
Glyph Of Protection. Create a shadow Sphere to provide 33% Protection to allies within the area, and Aegis when it expires.
Glyph Of Cleansing. Create a Shadow Sphere that gathers conditions from nearby allies. Upon expiring the sphere will become corrupted and disperse the absorbed conditions to nearby enemies.
Glyph Of Power. Create shadow Sphere that provides Might & Fury while in the area of effect. Upon expiring all within the area will receive Quickness.
Glyph Of Regeneration. Create a Shadow Sphere to provide Regeneration, & Vigor for all nearby allies. Upon expiring all allies receive Alacrity.
(Elite) Glyph Of Shadow Flare. Create a shadow fire Sphere that inflicts Torment, & Blindness for all nearby enemies. Upon expiring enemies within the area effect will receive Weakness & Burn.
This would be something i would love to play if Thief received a healer Espec.
So what are your hopes, and what playstyles would you prefer if Thief was to receive a Support Espec?Or, just let us know if a support Thief would be a bad idea.
Would love to hear everyones ideas.
There is so much potential for a support / Healer spec for Thief. Sharing some images to fill in some imagination
Thief could even receive Off hand Focus and perform Boon / Barrier support as mentioned in the thread.
