How many more elite specs to come?

With all the elite specialization speculation, I wonder how many elite specialization GW2 will have for this game. We know they can't stop at 2, but also they can't have 10 more. I guessing they might have 3 more to have a total of 5, and they could have one elite spec that roughly caters to each core spec in the game.

What's your thoughts?

    If they start working on gw3, I hope they fix gw2 so people can play Living World 1 beforehand. I hope they don't make GW3 anything like the New Adventures of He-Man. The timeframe they would be in might be too advance for my liking.

    If they made gw3 it would continue the story, not repeat it. Same like gw2 works compared to gw1. Chances of gw3 are quite small considering the state of competitive part of the game, unless it's a mobile game which I've heard devs are working on.

    My own thought is Arenanet will release specializations until we cannot distinguish one profession from another.

    Why not? There's no reason they can't re-use weapons, other than some players don't want them to do so.

    I figured that there is no need to have different weapon skills when you can have skills, like kits, or prof. mechs, like shrouds, that change your weapon skill bar. Re-using weapons on new elites and having new weapon skills, maybe possible but, may not be worth creating that many elite specs.

    Because every new ESpec also means a new expansion, as they are clearly an expansion feature. And even WoW doesn't have that many expansions, and probably never will. This game will be long dead before we reach 10, especially at this pace.
    I say we get 2-5(heavily depending on how the next expansion does in sales) more ESpecs in GW2 at which point we reach the end of active development and go into maintenance mode. ANet moves onto other projects, quite probably within the franchise though. My personal wish is a singleplayer RPG which radically expands on the world and lore of Tyria, and is in style more similar to Guild Wars rather than GW2.

    Any is too many. It's hard enough to balance what we have now, and I'm not looking forward to the next round of power creep.

  • they should just stop this elite spec bs and focus on different things. Every class has everything now we dont need a support thief with warhorn or a staff warrior that does 25k instant cast earthquakes as big as control points are. Stop it. Add some fun things. Maybe add a completely new class? Stop the powercreep. I cant imagine what this game will become in 3 years with 2 more expansions. Will greatsword axe/warhorn support bunker thief 1v5ing far be a thing? Pls no.

  • @bashi - you got lack of perspective. If everyone will be "OP" then... nobody will be "OP". Sure, thief might be as you said.. but so we can speak about guardian with D/D who gonna jump at you with radial blink killing you before you know what hit you. And where this "op" thief goes? Yea, so i thought :pensive:
