Guild Wars 2 is preparing for the launch of End of Dragons, its third full expansion pack. Before its launch, Guild Wars 2 demonstrated a lot of the features players can expect in the new expansion – most recently a short video compiles nine new upcoming Elite Specialties for its nine existing classes.
Each of the nine occupations in Guild Wars 2 There are five core specialties, each with its own special active and passive abilities. Heart of Thorns introduced Elite Specializations – powerful specializations that completely change the way a class plays and grant access to weapon combinations that class cannot use. With End of Dragons, each class will have three Elite Specializations available, although a character can only have one activity at a time.
Guild Wars 2 previously introduced new Elite Specializations enter End of Dragons, but this video quickly showcases some of the coolest features from the extended trailers. From Bladesworn’s explosive Dragon Slash attacks, Vindicator’s League of Legends stance, and Virtuoso’s enchanting and illusionary Bladesong, characters of any class will have plenty of new tricks and combinations new weapon – to play in the upcoming expansion.
Guild Wars 2 gave players the chance to play the new Elite Expertise in three beta events so far and made some balance changes to them. The fourth beta event will take place in the first days of December, giving players a chance to try out these changes and give more feedback, and Guild Wars 2’s New Siege Turtle mount for one rotation.
Most players are optimistic about the newly added Elite Specializations End of Dragons. Since they founded in Heart of Thorns, Elite Specializations is a fun addition to the game, adding a unique element to character classes not available with core specializations. The Elite Majors are especially flavorful, flashy, and fun, and players have loved what they’ve seen from them in beta events so far.
However, some players have already booked the new Elite Specialization. As their name suggests, the Elite Specializations are powerful – some believe too strong. The strong mechanics can be difficult to balance, and some former Elite Specializations are too strong or too weak compared to others, especially when considering Guild Wars 2 do not use “Holy Trinity” of Tank, Healer and DPS. Some other players don’t like that the Elite Expertise is essentially required, meaning builds that only use Core or weaponry cannot easily compete with the newer ones. Players will have to try out their Elite Specialities in the next Beta Event and during End of Dragons and evaluate whether ArenaNet successfully delivers compelling gameplay without disrupting the delicate balance between classes.
Guild Wars 2 now available on PC, with End of Dragons Released in February 2022.
