Scope out the Guild Wars 2 Dragonhunter summary

    
28
We were the kings and queens of promise.

You can’t play a Dragonhunter Guardian in Guild Wars 2 right now no matter how much you might want to be wielding a bow and hunting the third most dangerous game (dragons are third, humans are second, bears with cyborg implants are first). But you can find out a little bit more about how the specialization will work with Dulfy’s summary of the most recent official livestream, which includes a detailed breakdown of the skills on display and several of the trait lines that Guardians will be able to utilize when Heart of Thorns launches.

As you would expect, several of the abilities have obvious benefits for fighting dragons, such as multiple projectile-blocking tricks from the longbow and the class virtues. The traps unique to the specialization are also detailed, with each trap having a short activation time and priming time before it’s ready to start firing; pre-placed traps are ideal if you want their effects to go off quickly. Check out the full summary for more.

When I first heard the name dragonhunter it didn’t bother me. I was feeling more disappointed than anything else. I don’t if its because the name isn’t Paragon or if the name could’ve been better. But now the more I hear the name dragonhunter the more I grow bothered. I don’t usually get annoyed by stuff like this but dragon hunter just drives me nuts because its such horribly generic and bad choice.

For me the biggest problem with this specialization is the name. 
Dragonhunter..really ugh. I bet it will be the worse name of the bunch.

As far as play style it should be fine. yes, it overlaps with Ranger but there are only so many ways to DPS or support.

Hopefully this won’t gotten eaten by livefrye like my last 5 comments

Between the Necromancer and the Warrior, those will be what pushed me past “meh” or not.

I took a stroll on both of them yesterday through the Cursed Shores, and I completely forgot how awesome a full-condition Necro was to play…until I ran into more people fighting the same Elite Mob…

So if everyone knows where all the dragons are you’re really playing a more Captain obvious version of a dragonpointer outer :)

Rustybladez wolfyseyes The Elder Dragons rising is the primary event that set into motion everything in GW2. It’s the reason the Vigil was formed and the reason the Pact has to be created. It’s the reason that the Quaggans, Kodan, and Norn moved south and encountered other races, the reason the Dwarves are all-but-gone and the Asura have moved above ground, the reason Orr rose from the waters and Risen (zombies) are strewn about the land, and the awakening of another Elder Dragon was the purpose of the first entire year of story in the game. :)
Also, the “2” in the GW2 logo is the shape of a Dragon. Because, y’know, Dragons are a big part of the game.
