How exactly are you going to "grab" someone 1200 range away?

Nevertheless, the next Elite Thief Spec should be a close range magic user using Shadow Arts called Shadow Thief-- not the art of stealth and shadowstep, but an art that manipulates and control shadow magic. If the Necro can raise undead army, the Shadow Thief can raise the Shadow Army (see Shadow Army).

This time, the Thief is no longer stealing material things, the Deadeye have opened this possibility. When the Shadow Thief steals from a Warrior, they steal the shadow of the Warrior and summon a Shadow Warrior instead of creating stolen items -- so pressing F2 will summon the shadow. Thus if you take Improvisation from DA, you can summon 2 Shadow Warriors to fight by your side.

So, how would a Thief summon things, they aren't very magic oriented, much less studying enough to summon things.

Deadeye changed all that with the confirmation of Shadow Magic whenever they use their Deadeye Mark (creating items using magic) and cantrips (aka magic).

... True, but a deadeye still isn't that magic oriented. its only used for 2 things, the Mark, and the Cantrips. so still, not very magic oriented.

That's why a Shadow Thief is inevitable, who is a true Shadow Magic user. If Elementalist can take the Thief's Dual-wield mechanic, Mesmer can take the stealth mechanic, and Guardian can take the shadowstep mechanic, the Thief can easily take the magic user mechanic and become a Shadow Thief.

How is a Thief not a magic user?Stealth and Thieves' Shadow steps, as well as the 'new' shadow portal (probably even more tools) are Shadow Magic.Every profession in Guild Wars lore uses magic to some extend, even warriors.

Yeah, something I never understood ironically. Fanfic pictures etc. are cool imo. But written stuff is beyond my understanding. But hey, to each her/his own.

It is like fanfiction. I do like enjoying my own creativity.

@ProtoGunner.4953 said:Also, with a Cantha oriented expansion Assassin would be more likely.

We can already build Assassin. What the Cantha expansion will bring might be an evolved version of the Assassin who specializes in Shadow Magic. Shiro doesn't just use Shadow Arts, he uses Shadow Magic -- Shiro'ken's are his version of Shadow Army. Shadow Art's evolution to full-fledged Shadow Magic is inevitable.
