I came across a shady solo roaming DD thief the other day. He could not be controlled via any skill and would instantly reflect the effect / projectile back to the caster every time, regardless if you hit his back or front. It's reflect is even better than the old mesmers "Mirror of Anguish" reflect since only the caster is controlled while the thief is totally unaffected (he could of have stability, but even that alone is difficult to get on a thief, and he wasnt using daggerstorm). He instantly reminded me of a nutorious thief troll that plagued wvw for years, however this wasnt that players account (alt perhaps?). But when I look through how I would go about creating such a build for myself, I cannot seem to find that OP perma anticontrol reflect trait/rune/ability to give my thief. The best type of "anti control" skill I can find on a thief is "Hard to Catch", but that doesnt have reflect. Any ideas? (or is that guy just using a cheat?)
With the new buff to thieves, needless to say, he was basically running around killing everyone, evading everything, cleansing everything and reflecting every control skill (regular skills & projectives would still hit though), basically offering no counterplay. It seems he also has an unlimited amount of initiative, so nobody can actually escape from him or chase him down when he needs to run (happens occassionally). It felt almost like he was "absent from the fight he was actually participating in" type of thing. I managed to kill him by planting a well timed GS "Leap of Faith" in his face, crit considerably and killed him instantly (no down state is awesome lol). But he had already killed alot of randoms.
