Guild Wars 2 Heart of Thorns’ first elite spec is the Chronomancer

If I could turn back time.

Let’s talk history for a moment. Before Guild Wars 2 was a thing, before it was even an idea, the team at ArenaNet was working on the third Guild Wars standalone campaign. Like its last two predecessors, Guild Wars: Utopia was slated to feature two new classes, one of which was the Chronomancer. It’s taken quite some time since then, and it’s not in the form anyone might have expected, but the Chronomancer has arrived at last as the first Elite Specialization for Heart of Thorns to be catalogued and dissected.

Sure, it took plenty of time, but given the nature of the concept that’s sort of to be expected.

The Chronomancer specialization is, as mentioned, limited to Mesmers, employing a variety of time-based tricks like reversing the events of combat and stopping time as necessary. You can read more on the official blog post detailing the specialization, but if you don’t have the time for that, you can watch the video below to preview what it looks like in action. Better late than never, indeed.

Hm, maybe I should dust off Gw2 after all. Leveled my Guardian main to 80 and a couple of alts to 30-40 but havent even finished the main story quest on my main yet.

i also heard that many things became accountwide now, which i a very nice change.

Glad my main is getting a cool advanced spec. Reminds me of my EQ2 Illusionist.  Still need to level a ranger so I can be a druid though… <3 nature magicccc!

breetoplay TomTurtle  Try Greatsword Mesmer, it is pretty steamrolly. And they can escape so easy in PvE with their illusions and invisibility.

Glad I’m a Mesmer :). Not so much for the gameplay, but the relatively unique theme.

I’m just hoping it releases in time for my birthday, September 5th. If it releases much later than that I’ll be busy again and will have to bunk off to play! :P An August release would fit nicely with the current news flow and what might pan out for E3.
