Today ArenaNet has revealed the Dragonhunter specialisation, the next of nine advanced character builds debuting in Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns. ArenaNet has detailed everything that players may want to know about this exciting new specialisation in a new developer blog from Game Designer Karl McLain which includes a special skill video showing the new build in action.
The Dragonhunter specialisation is set to bring exciting new gameplay to the Guardian profession once the expansion launches. The Dragonhunter functions as a ferocious big-game hunter specialising in ranged combat and back-line support. One of the many new skills that will change the way the Guardian profession operates is the Dragonhunter’s ‘Spear of Justice’ which has the handy effect of tethering enemies to a point on the ground to keep them in range of attacks. Another skill is ‘Wings of Resolve’ which grants players the ability to grow wings of light and swiftly leap into battle, healing allies or damaging enemies as they land.
Fans can get their first live gameplay look at this specialisation during a special episode of ArenaNet’s livestream show Ready Up airing at 8pm BST / 9pm CEST tomorrow (May 8th) on the official Guild Wars 2 Twitch channel (http://www.twitch.tv/guildwars2).
