Guild Wars 2 hints at bow-using Guardian elite spec

    
66

The next elite specialization for Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns may be out of the bag, as ArenaNet posted a new piece of concept art this morning that shows what appears to be a Guardian wielding a bow. The character also has a pair of bright wings sprouting from between his shoulderblades. We’ll put in our official guess for the name of this specialization right now: the Cupid.

If this is a preview of a new class build, this will be the second elite specialization announced from the expansion, following the Chronomancer, a Mesmer build that uses a shield that stops time.

Time to roll a guardian named OKCupid.
On a side note, Chronomancer has been shown to do everything but stop time. They might rewind it, displace it, speed it up, slow it down, but they don’t actually have a time stop.

It’s one of those comments I really didn’t want to touch with a 100 ft pole, especially by someone who claims to have far more *confirmed kills* than Ted Bundy. But I am not sure which is more disturbing, the post or the fact it got an upvote. /sigh

Craywulf Loopstah Fully aware. My comment was a lighthearted response to the statement that you can’t have a thief wielding a wand.

Time for for me to amend my predictions

Ranger – Staff (revealed) = Druid
Necromancer -Greatsword (revealed) = Ritualist
Engineer – Hammer = Technician
Warrior – Pistol (off hand) = Man-at-Arms
Mesmer – Shield (off hand) = Chronomancer 
Thief – Rifle = Assassin 
Guardian – Longbow (revealed) = Paragon
Elementalist – (main hand) sword = Dervish
Revenant – (main hand) Axe = Summoner

seriously doubt it will be called the cupid. I’m betting more on something like Avenger. My initial guess would have been Seraphim but that seems too close to the human seraphs.
