All Elite Specializations in Guild Wars 2 End of Dragons
Guild Wars 2the upcoming extension, End of the dragons, is expected to introduce nine new Elite Specializations in total when it releases in February 2022, and testing for those will run through the rest of the fall.
While we don’t yet know all of the new Elite Specializations that will be in the game, the first three were revealed and tested in a beta session that ran from August 17-21.
The beta introduced Willbender for the profession of guardian, harbinger for necromancers and virtuoso for the mesmer.
The remaining six new Elite Specializations will be introduced three at a time before the next two beta sessions which will take place September 21-25 and October 26-30.
This specification takes a fairly liberal take on what it means to be a necromancer with a “frenzied and fast-paced fighting style,” according to a press release. The spec mixes elixir-related skills and abilities with a western-style outlaw feel that is best exemplified by the way they use pistols to fire poison bullets at enemies.
The Master of Will differs from other Guardians by using a raised sword to create dual wield action. The specification is announced by Guild wars as a “very aggressive damage dealer” good at “blowing up” enemies. The intent of the specification is to further highlight the positive qualities of the Guardian as a protector rather than a defensive character.
Mesmers are known to be a class of cunning and deception with delusions, but the spec’s new virtuoso was created to target enemies that cannot be so easily confused. This specialization uses enchanted blades that can be summoned to deal damage through telekinetic powers that will also combine deceptive elements of the Mesmer class with more powerful attacks.
The remaining Elite Specializations will be added to this article as they are released over the next two months.
