Guild Wars 2 fans datamine Warrior and Engineer elite specs

Hugs now!

Why wait for ArenaNet to announce the last few elite specializations for Guild Wars 2 when you can just mine for all that information and pull it straight out of the game client? It’d just be silly to do otherwise. Enterprising dataminers on Reddit have pulled out what appear to be images and names for the Engineer and Warrior specializations: the Forge and the Berserker. Both of them sound right, and the former even matches up with the drone images that were mined from the game some time ago.

Of course, simply knowing this doesn’t say a whole lot, especially when the Warrior specialization in particular doesn’t look to have any new weapons to access. It’s hard to even tell what the spec will wield, since the picture in question (used as a header here) looks to have nothing in hand. So for the details on that, we’ll just have to wait… and speculate wildly until we know, naturally.

I really hope that the Berzerker loses the ability to heal themselves, or we can pretty much delete all our other characters.

Grimmtooth SoMuchMass Frankly i suspect Arenanet to be critically short of actual programmers.
When you see something like a change to the inventory system come up, it means they have gotten someone new in the door that was willing to go the distance of wrangling the code.
Heck, one guy showed up on Reddit, claimed he had tried to get toggled mouse look going, but gave up because the mouse buttons were involved in code all over the place.

SoMuchMass Arenanet has since the announcement of GW2 been 90% marketing/hype.
I know people that was so hyped on the game, to the point of getting into the closed betas,  that dropped the game within months of final launch. Not sure they even completed the first episode of the living story stuff before going poof (likely back to leveling yet another toon in WoW).

I was close…I thought the Engies were going to be called Blacksmiths.

SoMuchMass You are correct as you pointed out below..each spec is getting its own news release.
I bet they had drew up a weekly schedule for news releases till the final announcement of an official release date.
They have skipped a few weeks here & there which has perked my ears up. 
I think they are having issues which in turn is causing delays on their schedule. 
(this is pure speculation on my part but it makes sense)

Keep up the good work TS.
I actually read the your reddit post and completely missed the warrior and engineer info on it <DOH>

woolydub that_shaman I feel like it’d be a bit dangerous to name it berserker when that is also a stat combination for gear.
