Mesmer... I remember how i used to hate them in PvP when i went Elementalist in Guild Wars 1. I never like them, their only positive attribute for me was their amazing armor/clothes.
Now, I have to be honest and say that I am kinda dissapointed that Mesmer is the last proffession after they SAID that they were only bringing back 4 of the old proffessions and bringing 4 new proffessions so I was kinda hoping for a new proffession. After looking at that video, however, i have to say that this looks just amazing.
Finally, after waiting since January 2009, (I know people have waited a lot longer then me) closed beta will finally be released and hopefully this month. I want my hands on this game so bad it's crazy
Can't wait. =D
Needs more purple butterflies though. I want them every where like the necromancers locust swarm.
Do want butterflies and 2h sword
That last scene was interesting...if it's a real bit of game...and I'm assuming it is because of the format [resembling all of the other professions ability flicks].
What it means, to me, is that the mesmer was avoiding the enemy by jumping through the holes...but at the same time building up a massive blast.
Keep them *absolutely* away from you...then knock their heads off.
It's all assumptions - but that massive blast...it wasn't a range thing, because he could just have done that right away when the monster ran at him - why jump here and there (apart from pleasure? - or to demonstrate the jumpy thing). The distance was kept to buy time for a knockdown ability that was building up, building up...
So the mesmer is going to be an ultra-glass, very controlling and slow-to-build but shockingly devastating class.
Aaaawww yeaaah. All I can say
Looks really nice, cant wait for GW2 even more
Tough I still stick to my main choice which is warrior, but not sure what other alts ill roll! ><
About the massive sword - it correlates to the massive blast. They never swing the sword...but it's a visual queue...slow and hard.
For mesmer game-play, the slower the weapon the glassier, slower to build but destructive you are...and more physically elusive?

interesting, but I did not see the reason for the last guy's porting between spots.

Mages are basically "warlocks for girls" - Kerrath
finally they revealed my main proffession (not class) the mesmer, i've been playing a mesmer since the 1st day i played GW which is around 6 years ago, and to this day i'm still playing it, not as much as i should, but i am
This... was... awesome!
The invisibility field, the transportation circles, those white/pink beams of death (did anyone else notice the cool sound those had), the field that seemed to electricute those guys... wow.
On the day I start to feel a little down about the lack of new info on Guild Wars 2, this happens! The gaming gods are obviously smiling on me!
Holy shit though, that video was epic. Before that I couldn't have given 2 craps about a the 8th profession possibly being a Mesmer, but now I REALLY want to try one out. I don't think it'll be my main, still want to play Elementalist, but it'll definitely be one of the first alts I make!
Well, first I thought my main would be necromancer. What can I say... I had a change of heart <3
