Guild Wars 2 Reveals the Thief, the 6th Profession To the surprise of everyone that attended GDC this week in San Francisco where the ArenaNet team let slip the 6th profession reveal the Thief. Attendees were able to enjoy an up close look at the new class and some face time with the new Norn starting area Hoelbrak. Now as some of the more studious of you out there you will also know that this information was accidentally leaked earlier today, as this reveal is now official with the following snippet from the press release: "As a master of stealth and surprise, the thief is deadly in single combat – particularly when catching enemies off guard. Thieves compensate for their relatively low armor and health by being quick and evasive. They can travel through the shadows, vanish into thin air, or steal items from their opponents and use them as weapons." Even better news is that the Thief is not a re-skinned Assassin, which will definitely please many of you out there, so without much further ado, check out these game play videos of the the Guardian (full skills demo) and the Thief the 6th addition to the GW2 profession fold.
