It’s gonna be ranger again


Moonearth91

If the ranger spec ends up being called Warden it's gonna feel so weird, cause a hammer-wielding spec with that name was predicted MONTHS ago lol. Like getting a peek at your xmas gifts in june. No mystery to look forward to. May as well reveal last.


evenaardez

I still think it’s gonna be warden tbh


Moonearth91

Yeah, most likely. It's got lore connections and makes sense.


vianiznice

Watch as it's something obscure, such as "BishyBashy Zebra"


Enfero

"Warden" sounds too straightforward to go with the names we've been getting


Dlax8

Catalyst and Vindicator make the most sense of them all. A Catalyst in Chemistry is a chemical that enables a reaction to happen at a lower energy state (iirc) than it normally occurs at. So the Jade sphere acting as the catalyst makes sense. And vindicator is just a standard fantasy name and the legends make sense with it.


Enfero

I don't know why you specifically latched onto those two, I didn't say anything specific about those two, but saying the name "catalyst" makes sense because the jade sphere is a catalyst is like saying the name "gunsaber" would make sense for bladesworn because the bladesworn has a gunblade. What is the catalyst themself catalyzing? Like I'm not necessarily saying they're *bad* names, they're just generally much less straightforward than past ones and I think the same will be true of the ranger spec.


Dlax8

I mean my major point was really that catalyst and vindicator are better names than willbender. It should have been Zealot or Fanatic if they didn't want to pair it closely with the Zeal line.


Enfero

Ah, sorry, I see what you're saying. Yeah, vindicator at least makes sense and is consistent with "herald" and "renegade" being more lore-based than role-based. Catalyst isn't bad, a bit more abstract than weaver, but fine. Most of the others I can at least understand what they're going for even if they're a bit odd, but yeah willbender is definitely the worst. The fact that they didn't go with a simple choice like "zealot" is why I think they won't go with a simple choice like "warden."


ItsTheSolo

It's obviously going to be called bunny thumper, as it once was


pyule667

I thought thumper was a rabbit.


BambooPail

Bladesworn was amber and kurzick themed, I have a feeling ranger will be Luxon and jade themed. Not sure about the name. Warden isn’t stupid, so it definitely won’t be the spec name we get.


jetjordan

Best for last baby


[deleted]

this ;)


jetjordan

But seriously why every time....


--Pariah

Hard times for medium armor I guess. No clue about ranger or thief either.


[deleted]

Seriously. I thought there’s no way they’re going to put the whole adventures caste last but here we are. Sucks to be an Engi/Thief main rn 😂


Mystreanon

it is KILLING me, i just wanna know if engi is partial long range with melee focused with the mace, JUST TELL ME ANET.


ahrima

Right?! It would be cool if the mace acted like a magnetic Mjolnir that you could just throw around


Arafax

Holy shit, don't give me hope.


cardboardrobot338

I was thinking like a ball and chain. But you could totally engi that up with THE POWER OF MAGNETS.


pyule667

Or they could channel the power of someone's favorite sport, stick and ball. Where you use the power of a mace to hit a ball far away.


Embarrassed-Top6449

That's actually the ranger but with hammer. The spec is called cricket.


pyule667

I see. And I take it all attacks apply confusion, no one knows how it really works, and in pvp it makes matches go on for days.


cardboardrobot338

One of the utilities just makes you teleport at a stutter.


[deleted]

GREAT. Now I’ll be disappointed when it isn’t this.


Shufflepants

I just wanna know if engi is getting like a single mech suit kinda deal or if it's gonna get mobile tech based minions so we can have minionmancer engis.


Mystreanon

if ther spaghetti code is any indication, with the minion rename popping up in game if you press f4 and right click i think, then maybe thats an indication of something, or maybe not


Shufflepants

Yeah, that bug had me wondering if Engi was gonna get a single semi powerful golem pet akin to ranger pets.


styopa

They're still designing particularly Canthan butt-capes.


ClockworkSalmon

that's for heavies, we're getting traditional canthan trenchcoats


craybest

Thief here, at least all medium Armor are in the last one together haha


Mrfive2five

Saving the best for last aye


Nico_is_not_a_god

sitting on the cliff at Domain of Istan controlling the local iboga population, begging for the location through text of their new elite spec


Mrfive2five

Sitting down in the black citadel using a custom made catapult to hit charr with waterbombs in hope they give me the elite spec details to get me to go away.


Lasluus

I've been only playing Ele since 2015 and now finally considering Engi as a my second character and so been wanting to know about his new spec...I feel you guys...


GrungeHamster23

For HoT Engie was last and PoF I can't recall. Was it Ranger?


MagicSpirit

I think even with PoF ranger was last in the trailer Edit: nvm it was holo


GrungeHamster23

Ouch. We’re a small portion of the game population so I guess it makes sense…oh well.


MagicSpirit

Also, ranger was last with HoT and engi was second to last


GrungeHamster23

Oh…wonder why I mixed them up then. Thanks for the heads up anyway. Still hyped for the next beta regardless.


Niradin

wait, wasn't Ranger first for HoT? I distinctly remember it being the first specialization to ever appear.


SpoonsAreEvil

It was teased first, as in we knew it was called driud and it would wield a staff, and both druid and scrapper were also shown in the trailer. But it was the very last e-spec to get revealed, I believe it was revealed at PAX or some other event like that. First proper reveal was chrono, btw.


MagicSpirit

It was the only one showed at the first livestream event, along with just some info about Reaper, and that's why they posted the Reaper artwork and video first and they did it last for ranger, in late September before the release Edit : Reaper was third true, it was : Mesmer - Guardian - Necromancer - Elementalist - Revenant - Warrior - Thief - Engineer - Ranger


SpoonsAreEvil

Wasn't reaper third? I believe it was chrono -> DH -> reaper.


NikeDanny

At least Holo is kickass. Im scared theyll do one of the three as Herald or Druid. Pure statbots


GrungeHamster23

Love Holo and Scrapper. They’ve been doing pretty well with the specs we’ve seen so far. We’ll see this Friday though.


miriforst

And it will probably be magic bull golems (maybe reskinned to be made of jade so its "canthan"). Because we need engineer to take a third shot at AI summons. Oh well... At least asura roleplayers might be happy. Not one of them though.


Mystreanon

if it means i can finally be long range, then im happy


jscoppe

Still crossing fingers hard for mech suit. But yeah probably will be AI golems.


MrForz

Honestly, given where the elite specs went, I'm hopeful it won't come to something as dull as some golemancer hiding behind horrible AI.


Kaladel

Let's hope for a cool jadetech cyborg! (or not, I don't want to buy character slots) Anyway, they are saving the best for last.


WertygoSpiner

we finally get to fuse golomancy with necromancy with the help of jadetech


Mrfive2five

Jadetech cyborg is the best thing ive read all day.


nickmoonwolf

Jadetech golemancer?


Samug

Yes let's hope for an AI spec coz every time ANet introduces it on engi it's such a huge success /s


[deleted]

[удалено]


Centimane

If they want to learn from previous attempts they could always fix turrets....


Hammer7_IL

Unironically they can't. Turrets are dead, gyros changed to wells. Every time engie gets an AI it's a broken mess.


Mystreanon

i just want long range, even if its only partial.


Kahrg

Nah,. melee punchy bois with robo arms.


Mystreanon

im a long range kinda person but my main is engineer, i picked it before i knew what horror i had tod eal with, with its specs


LahmiaTheVampire

I forgot this was a gw2 thread and thought I was on the 40K r/admech.


MrForz

Well until proven otherwise, no they cannot get it right. The latest improvement to pets were gyros, and they no longer became pets. 😂


Levi4than

> The latest improvement to pets were gyros, and they no longer became pets. 😂 Which let's be fair, was a massive improvement when they ceased to have ai :D


nickmoonwolf

I wasn't really implying strictly an AI spec, god I hope it's not a minion spec


Loshusquare

I mean, you could get inside the golem... And drive it... Like Taimi... who says a golemancer has to be an ai pet spec rather than a transform one?


Samug

So a skill that changes how you look and gives you 5 new weapon skills? Hmm, wait I think it reminds me of something...


Kirmes1

Why would you buy a character slot? It's an elite specialisation - just put it on your current char.


Kaladel

I have 5 character slots and they are all currently taken by other professions. No engineer at the moment, even if I've had fun with it in the past.


Kirmes1

Ah ok, sorry. That makes sense of course.


Frouwenlop

Save the best for last


captainpott

we got half an engi spec yesterday


Sandzibar

and Scrapper Ele today..


captainpott

I like it, its more of a shaman to me. My guess is that you have unique buffs (the augments) that you can place at will like a spirit, or run around with them but then they only benefit you. So wells with active and passive effects.


LahmiaTheVampire

Can’t wait to try out the screle


NikeDanny

Thief Guardian, Thief Revenant and Engie Warrior. Seems about right.


captainpott

Dont forget thief necro


ArcherspadeTT

Engi main, and I doubt we'll be last. Pretty sure once silhouettes start their rounds again we'll see thief first, then engi, with ranger closing it out. Unless they want to lessen the amount of time people are left bewildered by the thief choice, if the datamine was right. Then thief might be last and flip a coin for the other two.


Samug

People are hyped for the return of bunny thumper so ranger last is my bet as well.


LongliveTheRytlock

save the best for last 😤


Drakendor

Wait engi mains? Thought that was a myth


judicatorprime

I realized that Anet saved all of the medium armor classes for last... What does it MEAN


Zimf

Dont think it means anything. More than likely these specs havent been fully implemented yet


HunterCalledSerenity

How I feel being the only engie main who doesn't want mechs, golem summons, or a mace, tbh.


[deleted]

I want Asuran battlemechs/titans but those aren’t gonna happen so it’s all good, room for both of us.


gogadantes9

No it's not, it's gonna be ranger.


wrecksmith

the last and the strongest....they have to finish their training at a gym before comes out with bulky buff arms (buff arms icon)


Neil2250

Bladesworns being sad about being banner slaves and engies be sitting there like “another dps spec?”


Mystreanon

engineers whole thing is like, guns and being mid range, but of course we are forced to have TWO close range specs, they shoulda given us a short/longbow engineer spec right away


NewNoiseBeats

Hoping it’s thrown maces but I really doubt it


Mystreanon

if its a mecha suit or a golemancer golem pet, id just let it tdo all the work, im tired of feeling useless cause i find close range hard.


BudTrip

nahh ranger will be last again


Lon-ami

I'm crossing my fingers for a combat suit you can mount/dismount, but I won't hold my breath.


Marmodre

Someone Will be last, and Even then there Will be months until we can play it anyway. Why worry? The glory Will Come to us all. I look forward or it


IcyPhil

they tend to be one of the best ones tho! so excited for golemancer


AikijinX

A Thief here— I feel like saving the best for last means, pretty much gives them more time to tweak or fix little things. ( assuming they’re play-testing… ) I don’t think waiting another month should be a bad thing, although just like the rest of you, I can’t wait to see what’s in store for medium classes!


BarronTV1

I'd take a turret rework over new spec tbh


araegona

Likely better than willbender, you be fine booboo


kirix45

Plays thief. Sits knowing we getting chappy scepter instead of samurai ninja greatsword


ZajeliMiNazweDranie

Greatsword would be mildly infuriating, considering both elite specs already got 2h weapons. Also Daredevil is basically a ninja already, carving a niche for a samurai seems borderline impossible.


[deleted]

Completely agree about the 2h thing, thieves have been waiting to see new dual skill combos since HoT was released. I really wanted focus OH, thief offhands get just as many buttons as mainhands so it would’ve created more options.


jor1ss

Scepter is more exciting than greatsword though... Thief already has sword and dagger for slash slash stuff.


Elerran05

Thief already has two overwhelmingly fanservice-y RP specs, I'll be happy if they can finally get something that gives them a reason to exist aside from being raw damage in 95% of cases.


Mystreanon

Yea and its sceptre, they can duel wield with dagger


Dark_Hadrian66

Really hope for a cyborg or augmented armor. Not a poor asura hazmat suit elite bis, but a kind of mech can be cool. By mech, I mean exoskeleton allowing to perform impressive moves and use and arsenal of jade weapons / electro bullet / surgeon lasers!


[deleted]

No lie: Golemancer or my wallet stays closed.


Jackkernaut

Metal Alchemist


Eyn_

I may be wrong, but I think Thief will be the last. Until now, with EoD, they first introduced a profession from right (Mesmer, Revenant) then from left (Necromancer, Warrior) and finally from center (Guardian, Elementalist). It may not be a pattern, though.


Blackdragon1400

Good thing medium armor isn’t last in line for cool looking armor skins though! ….oh…wait. :cry:


ontnotton

sorry but im more on the "You are breathtaking" phase yet. super excited for our spec!


Dark_Hadrian66

And that's sad we are in the last round, but I hope it means they had time to make an awesome one and not just a kit.


EbenHSHD

I’m fine with it


drums_of_pictdom

An engi sitting in front of all his AI seems accurate. (engi main and I'll be happy with AI but i know a lot of ppl will be butt hurt if that's the case)


Petrikillos

It's gonna be a JOJO reference too xDDD


Kipados

Everyone else is getting their own version of all our class features, but the joke will be on them when they’re crushed into cubes by our jade juggernaut mechs


Vagrant123

Always engi


[deleted]

Engineer in the waiting room be like "Oh boy I hope my turn comes up soon." Necro: "Hey Engie I'm just gonna take your elixirs." Warrior: "Hey Engie, I found this cool big machine pistol sword in your blueprints list so I'm just gonna take that now." Elementalist: "Hey Engie I heard you had an elite spec that was an orby hammer guy. Can I just like... take the entire thing?"


Belhy

Teef


Levi4than

Last or not, I'd just hope that it won't be just another close-ranged spec. Which is very likely because of which weapon we're getting. So I'll rather hope for the spec mechanics being fun and not dependent on kits or braindead ai.


TwistedAlga

They are waiting to reveal the greatest last, of course. 😃


Taweran

Cant wait for another melee engie spec


Embarrassed-Top6449

Yeah but it's also gonna be the best. Holo and scrapper are both amazing.


deaxi12

So far the reveals have been: Mesmer(light) - Necro(light) - Guard(Heavy) Rev(Heavy) - War(Heavy) - *Probably Engi* Then Thief(Medium) - Ranger(Medium) - Ele(Light)


Doom_Eagles

The next reveal is Ele, unless they are giving Engineer's the Scrapper Elit again.


[deleted]

Ele silhouette has already been revealed, so they are going to be the next after warrior. Medium armour gang had to take a big L here :(


Definitely_not_Xeniu

Nah.. it will be light light heavy | heavy heavy medium | medium medium light so eli is last


Dharx

Ele was already teased on friday, so it's likely that today's reveal will be ele.
