anduriell.6280 Posted January 5, 2021 Share Posted January 5, 2021 What about being able to change the Steal mechanic for a mimic mechanic? When the Thief uses steal ( which loses the shadow step and get increased CD) on a target instead getting the bundle the Shadow would have access to the weapon and utility skills that target has equipped at that moment. It would not have access to the profession mechanics (F1-F4) or the traits. That stole skill set would be stored in F2 and could be used once or discarded when stealing from another target. In this case if you steal from a Firebrand it would have access to the guardian staff /scepter/shield skills and allt he mantras that target has equipped. The Tradeoff is the Shadow would not benefit from traits or profession mechanic from the target . That would give the steal mechanic something super interesting and actually the ability for the thief to become whatever is needed . Need to fight a pewpew ranger? become one. Need to fight a perma-stun warrior? Hit him with his own skill sets. The original could be slightly superior because of traited skills but still.You are in WvW and need a Firebrand? Steal that from the enemy commander. What could be the utility skills and the new weapon? Maybe Scepter with ranged AoEs? And Wells as Utilities for Shadow Magic?
