Guild Wars 2 teases the Ranger elite specialization

    
34

It’s not fun to be last. Someone has to be, sure, but if you’re a Ranger in Guild Wars 2, not only do you have to deal with the sorrow of being a pet class, but you also have had to watch every other class find out their elite specializations before you. But fear not because the reveal is coming!

Soon. Not actually today. There’s just a teaser image today, coupled with the original announcement of the Druid way back at PAX South. You can draw your own conclusions about the details. Perhaps now you can play as the pet and order the player character around? We don’t want to speculate too much and ruin the surprise.

Ekphrasis Quincha Celestia As January sale baby, yes?  The only events I’ve experienced were the ram stuff, and wow was that underwhelming.  At least I got a cool back piece out of it since level 80 backs are hard to come by (crafting backs are 78).  Trait patch which came with a giant host of bugs and exploits.  The golem event in WvW…. and that wasn’t exploited at all no… not at all.  You never had people running with the golem buff outside of golems one-shotting people.  And then the Mordrem event, and now I’m thinking?  Why do I give you money?! Stop updating, you break all the things!  I have zero faith HoT will come out smooth.

nahenway As much as I want to be able to disagree I find that I can’t.  Ranger was my first 80 in the game and while I do enjoy playing it the class is still not in a good place and never really has since launch sadly.
Don’t want to get my hopes up for the Druid /sigh.

…and preferably without the Lifebloom HoTs for WvW. <3

It feels like they’ve been rolling this expansion info out for three years.

Ha ha appreciated that one… remember how broken Druids in WoW before they overhauled the class? For a time Bear Tanks, Boomkins and Healing Druids were real viable and fun classes to play.
I’d love to see the ranger have an emphasis on CC/DoTs as a Druid.

So moving towards being the Druid class – plant based attacks
So I’m guessing a ranged class with and emphasis on DoT and CC? 

If so I can see Druids becoming a viable WvW outside of ranger sniping and mobile AC. 

I’d love to see this class get a rifle and go full on sniper.

Same! Loved having spirits following me around. So sad what they did to them.

Finally! I want to know what stats to deck my ranger out with to prepare for druid.
