My name is Bowborne and I have a very serious passion about archery and fireballs. Both the whiskey and the gigantic flaming balls of molten whatever.
Now that’s out of the way, I have two words for you to consider. Longbow. Elementalist.
I frequently stream Guild Wars 2 on Twitch and recently met someone we both know. I (shamelessly) asked this person if we could get longbow as a new weapon for Elementalist in the next expansion and they said, “I dunno, talk to Karl” so here we are.
I’ve put some serious thought into this idea but I’m still thinking of ideas for the utilities and the rest of the specialization. Please rest assured that this is where most of my thoughts go these days.
What do I think about when I’m pooping? Ice arrows.
What about showering? One big kitten meteor after shooting a fire arrow in the sky.
And working out? A wall of earth that blocks projectiles
When I was a teenager I played A LOT of D&D. One of the things I spent most of my time on was my Wizard/Ranger that eventually turned into an Arcane Archer but I’ve not experienced this joy since. For a very long and lonely decade I haven’t both been able to shoot arrows and fireballs at my enemies. ESO came pretty close with the fact that I could both play Sorcerer and use a bow, but let’s be honest ESO doesn’t have any marbles on Guild Wars 2.
The best part? You need an archery consult? RIGHT HERE (It’s me) Slight language warning.
Here’s the point Karl, can I call you Karl? I hope so. I desperately want to see this happen in this game. I will do literally anything it takes for this to even become a possibility. If you’d like to talk privately I have a discord, a twitter, and all of that other social media nonsense.
PLEASE READ THIS KARL
Below are some examples of what some of the abilities could look like. I paid a lot for this professional artist, so at least if nothing else, we have this magnificent art.
