    [Blog] Speculation on Beta and Final Profession

    Just found this blog, even though it is only speculations I thought I share it with you. Let's hope he is right!

    I hope so, but the predictions would have been more impressive if the author had called it back in the summer months. Still, I'm very anxious over the reveal of the 8th profession as it will ultimately decide what I roll first. If it's Mesmer (and I have no doubts it won't be), that will 100% be my first character.

    I also agree that the conjurer will be announced next week, where it's class specialty will be the summoning of weapons, letting them choose any combination mid combat ; )

    Hehe Im in there every now and then as well
    If closed beta is to start end of december it's more or less a week left to go for them to release the last profession.
    If not, well, then game will be delayed and probably not released until end of next year.
    Moment of truth, I hope we wont get disappointed =)
    And I hope mesmer is last prof, heard something that it could be shadowpriest kind of playstyle =)

    Nothing confirmed by the devs, unfortunately, think I read about speculations probably at GW2 guru forum.
    Some people compare it to mesmer profession in GW1 where it had shadow priest kind of playstyle =) And therefor guessing that the profession would work in a similar way in GW2
    Just keep hoping I guess =)

    I think the closest thing to a mesmer in wow would be a shadow priest... but that's like saying a flying squirrel is a falcon because they can both stay in the air a while...

    If it has to be the mesmer it better resemble the EQ enchanter playstyle. Fuck shadow priests. I'm still butthurt that there won't be shadow knights.

    Also the big announcement will be Dec 1st.

    I hope I wake up to find a beta post or new profession. My birthdays on the 8th. Hope I can get a beta key for a present. It would honestly be the best present ever. Sad, I no.

    I'm crossing my fingers for any variety of a melee caster that is unique in comparison to the Elementalist, Necromancer, and Guardian.
    Something like an AoC HoX, or Spellblade from D&D.

    I hope you are not right! I thought every caster has some sort of melee weapon anyway right? Like the axe for a necromancer e.g.

    Thing is, we already have 2 melee casters and 1 magic melee/caster. If you equip daggers/dagger on Elementalist or Dagger/Dagger | Axe/Warhorn on Necro they are melee casters. Melee ranged spells (well short ranged, pretty much melee range). Then you got hte guardian which can be magic melee, magic caster, etc. So Mesmer will probably have a similar quality of being able to go into both melee or ranged based on weapons.
