Afaik thief stores stolen items in f2-f4.
I wish Arena.net would have posted some more in depth update notes before each BWE.
If I can keep stolen skills for a Thief, this could be the tipping point to chose that one over the Ranger, was the pet AI & control still has not won me over, despite my love for ZooCrew extravaganzas in the past.
But I may be misremembering, or you may be referring to other stealth skills that I didn't encounter at all.
Ok, I checked the wiki, and I was wrong. F1 steals, and puts the item in F1, not in F2-F4. You can use the item later, but you cannot store more than 1 item.
Used Tab as my weapon swap in beta, C as my nearest target (GW1-style), Z as shaft/unshaft weapons. Was intending to keep X as about face for instant turnaround.
I thought everyone knew to use alt & shift key combos.
I remember back in the days, being one of the best PvP warlocks in my realm, one of my tricks was to assign my pet to specific keys and I could remove CC, DoTs from my teamies or HoT's and other beneficial effects/buffs in a strinkingly fast fashion. Back in the days, not too many people learned to player with their keyboard that heavily.
But usually, I either don't alter the UI and bindings at all or alter everything dramatically. GW2 probably won't have much alteration. Being a pianist, my hands move move swiftly, fingers accurately and without attention.
But. There's still too few skills in my opinion! Darn.
1) having fewer skills means you need to pick your skills carefully, e.g. GW1
2) having fewer keys to press at the same time is nice in a game where dodging is more prominent
3) having fewer skills on a weapon means the weapon has more of its unique flavor in terms of its strengths and weaknesses
So while I think we need more weapons, or we should be able to tweak skills on a weapon (within limits), I don't think having 15 skills per weapon is a good idea (or 60 for elementalist?!?).
More skills does not automatically make the game better. You need those skills to actually have a reason to exist.
I don't think he's talking about what you're taking about, Alaris.
