I didn't think a game could make magician class that bad. if I wanted to play melee, I would choose a warrior, not a warrior parody with less hp but fancy animations gosh... Maybe give us a new mage class who be a mage, not a mage parody

I love Guild Wars 2, I think it is the best MMO out there. But I was a long, long time WoW player. The one thing Guild Wars lacks combat wise for me is a traditional caster style mage. Elementalist just doesn’t do it. Underhand throwing some little blobs of fire or rocks with the Staff and placing some little patches of lava on the ground doesn’t have that fantasy of chaining together destructive forces where spells combo off each other to launch projectiles at your foe. The Staff Elementalist should fill that niche but the only spell that feels like you’re casting anything or using the staff is skill 5. It is one of the least played weapon and class combinations where it should be iconic. So disappointing to see another melee Elementalist instead of something that will provide that traditional experience. Even SWtoR does mage like classes better. Maybe one day they’ll rework staff 1-4 =\

elite specializations was always a bad decision. They PIEGEONHOLE players. It totally killed the spirit of "Build Wars." And now, the ele players just got screwed even more because they got a redundant role on a role they never asked for in the first place!

well... i've always loves the versatility of elementalist... when i found out that there was a spec that combined elements i was so happy... and then i discovered that his utility skills and eapon where for melle... i tried many many times to play it since i realy gravitate twards alchemical like mechanics (mixing of elements) and i jsut cant... cuz its mostly melle based... now i see they have a two handed weapon... OH! yes... a hammer... oh cool! (realy... not sarcasm)... is it gonna be ranged like the revenant? seems not... i was a bit disapointed... but... im still eager to try it... maybe i'll be suprised... unfortunatly (and fortunatly) i dont much hope... but then again... im the idiot that thinks that the ele elite skill of flame sword should have been a staff whose 2-5 skills should be of each element since the ele already has a fire weapon...

The trailer itself is misleading, it's half melee and half short-ranged specialization (600). Air and Fire are ranged because they are more about damage, Earth and Water are melee, since they are more supporting elements. Spheres can be used in a ranged way or melee.

Why would you give mesmer a ranged dagger but you wouldn't give ele a ranged hammer or ranged anything. I'm tired of melee, ele is the lowest defence, lowest hp class with no passive mechanics like aegis to protect them. Please stop with the melee it's not fun. Virtuoso is 100 times better........

if you're constantly in downed state with weaver, then you're not playing it right, lol. Weaver has insane mobility, tons of heals, tons of cc, and insane damage. I mean, if you can't survive with all those tools and abilities, then you may be doing something incorrectly.

Weaver only has 1 or 2 of those things at a time. Fresh air has good good mobility and it's lacking everywhere else besides damage. But even then, other classes easily do its damage without giving up so much sustain and utility. The only version of weaver that is fine is condi fire weaver and that's only good for 1v1's and pve.

wow, so much salt in the comments, LoL. I'll be honest, I was mostly keeping an open mind on the new elite spec, and kinda hoping for something ranged, like a longbow, or a pistol, but when I heard the rumor that it was hammer, I was actually really excited. I think this weapon can be a lot of fun to play with and offers a ton of very interesting possibilities for alternative play style, some great tanky bruiser capabilities, massive amounts of really fun CC, and could easily provide some insane damage, and even the idea of having a mix of melee and ranged attacks would not be out of the realm of possibility for Ele hammer, (at least to me). I think having a mix of both melee AND ranged (long range, like 1200) attacks with hammer, on Ele, would be incredibly cool, totally unique, and original. Based on this very short clip, I really REALLY hope the devs are able to give us some fun and NEW animations, (recycling the GS 100-blades animation for hammer is not going to cut it, neither is giving all the guardian hammer animations to Ele. You're charging a premium price for this expansion, spend a little on some new mocap), as well as interesting and creative weapon abilities. I'm excited to see what the dragon/phoenix manifestations are about. Is there going to be a water-turtle and earth-tiger manifestation as well? I'll admit I'm curious but also a bit concerned about the "jade-tech orb" thing, but if those were what I saw turning into elemental energies swirling around the character, then I think we could be on track for some really fun play time. All in all, I'm very VERY looking forward to getting a chance to play it during the next beta. All of the new elite specs are looking pretty fun, to me.

Noobs should stop the hate. Ele gets 50% damage reduction on earth + auto cleanse every second/immunity to crit hits. In water: auto 1.6k heal every 10 secs + heal when attuning+ cleanse when having regen. Add sigil of cleansing , or any defensive rune and it is veeery strong and easy to survive. Noobs should stop picking berserker and marauder to roam alone, and expect to survive. Dont blame developers for your poor choices. If you cant survive, pick dire armor and play for burns and bleeds in earth and fire. Also helps if you stop roaming and actually join a guild that will give you support and will use the damage you produce to get the kills.

@Kendrick Chu i will give you free advice. If you struggle surviving. Always start by creating a tank/bunker build. Then start taking away sustain and adding damage. Tune your build until you get the combination that you feel comfortable with. What you shouldnt do is use just any armor or build for "diversity" and expect it to magically beat everyone else XD I assure you, that you can get a lot of diversity as long as you do smart choices.

@zCBSajsBXN sdjzcnaskxn with dire you get decent both things. But on a general level you are right. This game is not made to have ultimate builds with unkillable gods that destroy everything. Instead you get several build and equipment templates to select the combination that suits the moment. Imagine if that was not the case lol battles would never end
