As part of three professional specialization reveals coming over the next few weeks, ArenaNet have revealed what’s in store for the Mesmer in the next Guild Wars 2 expansion: Heart of Thorns. Dubbed as the Chronomancer, the specialization will focus heavily on the manipulation of time itself, all channeled through the trusty tools of shield.
We’ve got a trailer of the skills in action below.
The Chronomancer will be able to harness the power of time to cause chaos amongst their foes, and enhance themselves and their allies. A new effect called “Alacrity” will cause their cooldowns to be reduced; think of it as a reverse to the already existing “Chill” effect. As the sole provider of this effect, Chronomancers are going to be in high demand for any group play.
There’s a new blog post going up imminently that will detail skills and traits, as well as a livestreamed demo of the Chronomancer in action on Friday 1st, at 8PM BST on the official Guild Wars 2 Twitch channel.
