Guild Wars 2 unveils the leafy goodness of the Revenant’s Ventari legend

Salad.

After a few days of teases, another legend has been formally revealed for Guild Wars 2‘s upcoming Revenant profession, and it’s all about healing. Yes, these dark knights of the Mist have a Legend that’s devoted to being a beacon of health. It makes sense when you consider it’s a legend based around the venerated centaur Ventari, considered a spiritual ancestor by the Sylvari. Plus, you get to heal people by smacking other people in the face with a staff, so that’s satisfying.

The new melee utility-based nature of the staff is meant to go along with the Ventari legend, but the Legend itself centers around summoning and making use of Ventari’s Tablet. Players have to summon the tablet first when the Legend is assumed, at which point the tablet can be directed from point to point, healing allies it passes over and creating defensive barriers. Check out some screenshots of all this in action just below, and take a look at the full article for more details in getting some legendary healing into your Revenant.

Something I am a little confused about.  Are the revenant legends tied to the weapon currently being used?  IE if I swap my weapon, does my Legend swap?  Or can you mix and match different weapons with different legends?

Revenant seems like an awfully complicated class, gameplay wise.
I wonder if they’ll patch the others to be like that… so many multiple-step attacks with orbiters/waves/secondary and tertiary effects…

Nreff nahenway here’s to hoping the raven staff will make its appearance. GW2 has some amazing armor designs but i always found staff skins lacking.

Nreff not much difference between the two, as long as you’re talking about a 2h spear.  Other than one has a point and one does not…. fighting style wise they would be quite similar.

1h spear would be more like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ygRholyh5g
