    Most probably a Mesmer.

    I'm pretty sure that's mesmer, they tend to have the purple glow around their stuff

    lol, remind anyone of the EQ 1 Enchanter pet? A crappy floating sword and shield.

    At least this one glows, I guess.

    Those are the only skills that summon floating swords and shields that I know of off the top of my head.

    I wasn't talking about the mesmer using a twohander, I was talking about the other player with 3 swords floating around her. Now I agree that the purpleish color could indicate a mesmer, but I see nothing on the skill list that could explain this.

    That is probably riposte or the retaliation boon.

    Is it a human racial skill?

    Maybe it's a utility skill we don't actually know of? Do we know if that was a player? Or was it an npc?

    Fairly sure it was a player.

    Also image to save people time:


    Something else I noticed.. her clone is attacking a target dummy while she stands off to the right. So it is definitely a Mesmer.



    Best guess: Riposte (Off hand sword), or it could be Illusionary_Mage (Off hand torch)

    Great capture thank you

    sounds plausible it's Riposte

    gain retaliation for 5 seconds.

    it's a boon

  18. #18
    Could it be the old Illusionary Weaponry elite's GW2 version?


    After all, retaliation is a boon that everyone gets, and these swords are purple, which refers to mesmer-only ability.

    If it's a 5 seconds buff, then why does the player have the buff for more than 10 seconds?
