Ok first of I did not play it yet so I can’t say anything about performance, although I hear mostly bad things about it.
But there is something I can say about it based on the other “Legends” the Revenant can use.
For those who never played GW1 to your information these characters the Revenant draws power from are all characters from GW1, except for “Kalla Scorchrazor”. Now that doesn’t mean she is not a Legend, but there is another reason why I find choosing her strange.
To start I will tell you about my reactions toward all the “Legends” I had when Revenant and their Elites were introduced:
Legendary Assassin Stance (Shiro Tagachi) – "Ah the main antagonist of “Factions” if you could use his skills for real then you could wipe the floor with anyone in the game."
Legendary Centaur Stance (Ventari) – "Oh yeah the centaur you meet in “Prophecies” and “EotN” who planted the Pale Tree along with Ronan."
Legendary Demon Stance (Mallyx the Unyielding) – “Oh give me a break the final boss of the Domain of Anguish, you could also wipe out anyone in this game if you had access to his skills.”
Legendary Dwarf Stance (Jalis Ironhammer) – "Yeah the King of the Dwarves before they did the whole ritual thing in “EotN”.
Legendary Dragon Stance (Glint) – "Yeah Glint the dragon prophet, although I don’t get how can she be the “Elite” since Shiro and Mallyx are way more powerful than her."
Legendary Renegade Stance (Kalla Scorchrazor) – “Who?????”
Yes I had no idea who that was when I first heard it so I had to look it up on wiki. Which told me she is the grandcub of Pyre Fierceshot, so I guess that’s ok, but why not use Pyre Fierceshot himself then?
Pyre Fierceshot was one of the hero’s you can get in “EotN”. He was the first to rebel against the Flame Legion. The Charr quote “The charr have no gods!” is in fact first spoken by him. And even Rytlock Brimstone says it right before fighting Gaheron Baelfire at the end of CoF Story mode.
So Pyre Fierceshot would make a far better “Legend” than Kalla Scorchrazor, even more so Pyre Fierceshot was a Ranger so his primary weapon was also a bow. So the new Elite Spec would not even require any real changes if using him instead, except maybe some skill names.
So yeah strange choice if you ask me given there is a far better choice closely related to her.
I get that Pyre and Rytlock have same voice actor, but thats not really an issue as the Legends only speak quotes from time to time and it's not like we will hear the voices inside Rytlocks head which would make it awkward with them having same voice.
More over what quotes can we actually get from Kalla? We know only her lore and one line she said before her death "At least I die knowing my sisters are free", thats not enough so they will have to be invented. Pyre had very memorable quotes in EotN like "Revolutions eat their Heros" or "Do not trade one set of shackels for another" and of course "There are no gods for the Charr". The last one is in fact quite fitting for the upcoming fight with Balthazar.
