Haisse VI.8125 Posted October 2, 2017 Share Posted October 2, 2017 This might be a longer post, and please bear with me. I've been playing the game for almost 2 weeks. I managed to get one of my characters to 80. However, I have a problem staying alive longer in dungeons than when I go around in Tyria. I've skipped all the dungeons until my thief is 80. I joined a party the other day, and I was doing fine in Catacombs dungeon until we encountered the traps. I was the first person down in just a heartbeat. Even though with 13k to 14k health, I got wrecked so bad that I laughed but got disappointed after. Everyone in the party left because no one could pass that part of the dungeon. And, yeah, I don't have a glass cannon playstyle lol! I keep fumbling the wrong keys sometimes/always that leads me to die so easily. I also did unranked pvp a few days ago, and I got melted fast rangers and their pets, elementalist and engineers. I had fun but I hate dying a lot with only two shots, then I'm dead in a matter of seconds. Today I did the first story mission for pof to get the raptor mount, and I was having a problem taking down mobs fast. It took me more than a minute or even longer to take down the mobs with my thief. And then two pets of Balthazar appeared, I kept running and dodging but I kept going down and took me so long to kill them. I used 2 to stun enemies and blind them, then pressed 3 like a madman. I've seen other players that are doing find with their theifs, while me I keep going down fast. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong. However, should I consider making a new character and then go back to my theif later?How about the armor skins? I know some of them are bought from some karma merchants, like zerker's armor, but would it be good to have it for survivability? Any other armor suggestions for staying alive longer? I have a p/p build right now for pve. I know that not many players play this build, but I've since like the thief's profession using pistols when I play mmos. And for the accessories, what kind should I get? If I ever get to join in parties, which is a little bit difficult for me right now. Also, where to get a level 80 weapons?Although I've asked these questions, I'm thinking of dropping theif right now and come back when I get the feel of the game. Your advise would be helpful later on when I come to my theif, if I ever change my profession later. I'm thinking of getting a ranger with their aoe. I'm also considering playing as a necromancer or a mesmer. I'm not sure which one of them has stealth, although I think necromancer has it. Any good advise to take for other classes or profession for better survivability and being helpful to parties instead? Thank you in advance.
