how 2 level thief?

getting tired of being blown up by a thief in WvW running back to the fight and decided to make one of my own. Only time I ever played a Thief was a few years ago just messing around in PvP. Just wondering what the best weapon setup is for leveling and should I go power or condi?

    For leveling power is generally best. I found sword/pistol to be very effective against mobs thanks to the blind spam on skill 5 + three target cleave for sword instead of dagger's two + pistol whip is an evade that synergizes well with signet of malice heal. Keep short-bow on swap to move around faster. To practice for wvw however, you should try out all sets as they are all pretty decent for roaming though dagger/pistol and sword/dagger are often considered the best.

    S/P and pistol whip spam
    D/P and auto spam with 3 to chain to targets
    P/P for endless 1v1 but zero cleave, good weapon set to swap to with one of the previous ones for general use

    Power all the way

    what about at 80? which elite should I unlock first if I mostly wanna roam in WvW and make people cry on the forums? Dont care about PvE at this point since I have better classes for doing open world stuff and Fractals (Condi Mirage, Condi SoulBeast or Druid)

    Daredevil. Deadeye is hot stinking garbage and a total gimmick basically meant for RP'ers.

    You sure that Sniper idea is as good as you thought it was gonna be?
    Because I think my original idea is better.

    Leveling a thief with those specs, outside of using Tomes from sPvP reward tracks, won’t really be possible.

    If you look up one comment higher, DeceiverX was responding the OP asking which elite spec to unlock first when he does hit 80.

    Ah in that case I’ll just flatly disagree with him.

    Daredevil and Deadeye are both worth unlocking. Maybe Daredevil first because the expansion is after all, technically first, but Deadeye will be better for ranged focused play so it’s more playstyle dependent.
