Arena Net has just announced more details regarding the Revenant class in the upcoming Guild Wars 2 expansion.
Revenant's concept art
The revenant is the ninth profession, added into Guild Wars 2 as a unique archetype not seen in other games. Revenants are heavily armored masters of the Mists with abilities that allow them to harness and manipulate energy in order to perform immense attacks.
They invoke powers from legends of the past to dominate foes and unleash chaos on the field of battle. Those familiar with lore from the original Guild Wars will see many familiar faces reappearing as legends, which you can invoke through this profession.
Here are some quick overview specifics:
- Unique profession mechanic
- Unique resource system
- Heavy armor
- Medium health pool
- Color scheme: red, black, and misty white
I'm excited to see what it when it arrives! More information on their website.
