Ever since hearing about Guild Wars 2’s ninth and newest class at PAX South, we’ve been dying to know more about the Revenant. Well, today is a glorious day indeed, as the team has issued a dev diary to talk all about this “Master of the Mists.”
While not every skill or weapon is revealed, the diary does outline what will make the Revenant special. It’s a heavy armor-wearing class (with a medium health pool) that will choose both a passive and an active “legend” to configure most of its hotbar. The Revenant’s weapons include the axe, mace, and hammer, although all of these are used with a twist (for example, the class can throw the hammer, Thor-style).
The Revenant uses energy as a resource mechanic, draining and rebuilding it upon skill use. In a nod to the original Guild Wars, some skills will cause energy regeneration to freeze or even reverse. The class also features taunts and the ability to slow enemies’ attacks.
There’s a lot more to discover about the Revenant, so if this sounds like a future class for you, definitely give the post a read![Source: Dev diary]
