Oh, and you put 18 levels on your Thief in 1 day? I must be doing it wrong...took me awhile to get to 18 on my Thief...whats the secret?
Thanks man, Its the full valkyrie crafted set transmuted onto knight/berserker crafted items. Once I hit 80 with him I crafted myself some exotic weapons and all rare armor, then tried out thief. I like the look of this armor the best out of all the 'easy to get' stuff becuase I am greatsword/DPS focused and the spikes just look bad ass~
As for leveling, on the guardian I read up on leveling one, and the guy had done it in 65 hours. I did it in something like 58. I just used his build but followed the same strategy I have been using.
Just do hearts and stop and do every dynamic event you can, while mixing in the personal story quests at the appropriate level, as they are worth a ton. Once you get higher than 20, you can stop and do crafting on 2 crafts every 15 or so levels, and if you take 2 to 400( i did weapons and armorsmithing on my guardian) thats actually 20 full levels of experience. I recommend the crafting guides at http://www.gw2wiz.com
as they are the fastest cheapest way and lay out so it is very easy to follow. If you want to level even faster, start with cooking first and take it all the way to 400 at say.. double the pace of the other craft you are working, (so get it done somewhere around 50-60 level) when it is 400 (its cheap and easy) then switch to another craft and level that to the point of catch up with your original non-cooking craft skill. That's another 10 level in little to no time with crafting.
