Guild Wars 2 confirms the last Revenant legend is Shiro Tagachi

Slightly too on-point, perhaps.

Revenants have proven very capable of inflicting conditions with demonic legends, being defensive with dwarven legends, and healing their allies with centaur legends. It’s certainly a flexible profession even by the standards of Guild Wars 2. But we haven’t seen any sign that the class could just wade in with weapons out and wreck things. That’s what the last legend, Shiro Tagachi, is all about: Revenants will be taking up the assassin’s paired swords and just wrecking everything that stands before them.

Befitting his legacy in lore, Revenants using Shiro’s legend will have access to quick and blinding strikes, as well as several abilities calling upon the power of jade. You can even unleash the Jade Wind, albeit on a smaller scale than the historical figure. While the elite specialization for the Revenant has yet to be revealed, if you were waiting to see whether or not you could wreck things with paired swords… this is good news.

The new Revenant class is really the only thing about the expansion that really interests me — but I’m not sure I’m interested enough to shell out $50 … so I’ll probably just wait a while for the price to come down. I wish I could just purchase the new class for a discounted price.

Radfist Esoteric Coyote SPvP is celestial meta. Zerker only in certain classes.
I’ll agree, that the burst meta is out of control tho. There are no bruisers in gw2, only bunkers/100-0 classes

Superbrak Serrenity lordkrall88 Peregrine_Falcon Well, Anet said they’re interested in giving more room for supportive classes.
The healing aspect of revenant is a example they want to follow.
But hey, i’m not holding my breath. Anet promised the world before. And now i swing my sword, and then i swing my sword again.

unixtimed boots2 no, because they also mentioned that only the third trait slot can have an elite specialization, because they want to limit players to only be able to use one elite specialization at a time. 
Now will they come free, or as gem store unlocks or as part of a future expansion, I don;t know. But they are clearly planning for more than 1 elite spec per profession.

boots2 unixtimed I can hardly imagine they will add other “specializations” considering even now they can’t balance the game but adding more will make it even more difficult. One elite for each class is more than enough for them. It was probably masteries for the PvE content which every class can get. And by “expanding” the specs they prolly meant future XPacks where they have no choice but to add something new.

that’s one. There’s also a more explicit mention, but I think it was in a video and I can’t remember which video

boots2 please find a link to proof this. I never heard there would be more than one elite spec per class…

Shiro isn’t the last legend. There is still the elite specialization legend which has yet to be announced. It is widely believed that legend will be Glint because of animations in the original HoT’s trailer and recent datamining. 

Shiro is the last of the CORE specializations which is where perhaps the confusion came from.

Radfist Esoteric Coyote I don’t play zerker, and neither do most of the people I end up playing against or with.
