More on Guild Wars 2 Mesmer

ArenaNet follows the reveal of the Mesmer from Guild Wars 2 with more details on the final profession in the MMORPG sequel. Word is: "Introduced in the original Guild Wars, the mesmer has been revamped, reimagined and redesigned for a standalone role in Guild Wars 2. This signature profession celebrates its return to the Guild Wars series by demonstrating an enhanced command of the magic, illusion and sorcery that made the mesmer a profession favorite of the series." The Guild Wars 2 Website has the previously released trailer, and this page which doesn't help much, though they promise they will hold an I Am A reddit conversation at some point today. Here are the mesmer abilities revealed so far:

  • Illusions: the mesmer is the master of illusion on the battlefield, tricking its foes and sowing confusion among its enemies. Whether using casted lookalike Clones, or the impressively strong Phantasms, the mesmer can trick, deceive and decimate the enemy through the use of their illusions.
  • Shattering: Not only can the mesmer create illusions, but it can take them away. By using the mesmerís various shatter skills, the mesmer can destroy their own illusions resulting in various attacks and support effects.
  • Mantras: As a skill with two phases, the Mantra ability demonstrates its power with the ability to be charged before battle. With the Mantra charged, the mesmer gains an instant casting skill that they can used to deliver immediate damage while charging other spells.
