    Lack of use doesn't suggest new especs, and the fewer classes using said weapon only opens up the pool wider for someone else to possibly get it. Rifle doesn't fit the class at all. I would imagine mesmer, or ranger getting it before rev. Thematically, GS, MH axe, a dagger for either or both hands, or warhorn make the most sense, followed closely by scepter, and focus.

    I remember A.net posting about releasing an elite spec outside of an expansion.

  • Greatsword

    It's cliche, it's not the most interesting idea one could have. But the other two heavy classes can use it, and I'm sure the devs can come up with a unique interesting way to use it for our class. GS is going to be my choice.

    Of course, it's contingent on new ESpecs ever being made. Which, given the great direction the game is heading in now, is looking a little more likely. But not guaranteed by any means.

    I chose gs because I doubt the scepter/focus combo would happen.
    I chose gs thinking it would pair well with glint power, yes I know can't use like that but I can't help but think that way.
    Whatever the weapon, I hope the skill set has at least one evade or block on it.

    Said it before, and I'll say it again, a Gunkata inspired melee pistol spec would be dope...

    That or if they could make some sort of unarmed combat work... I would be into that too. (Obviously you'd need to equip something, so maybe dual focuses that just float next to you while you punch and kick fools to victory or something.)

    You seem somewhat angry, and quite against more new content for some reason. Just because. Nothing has been announced, doesn't mean people can't talk about what they would like to see. It also doesn't mean there won't ever be a new expansion again.

    Pistols; the class still lacks a ranged condition weapon viable against human players, and this makes condi builds rather weak at competitive game modes. But I'm not sure at all about the chances of a new expansion...

    They just need to rework Renegade/Shortbow to actually be viable for pvp. No need to waste another espec on 900 range condi damage.

    Daggers.

    Revenant is supposed to be an agile, swift striker. Daggers fit more to its flavor than Greatsword.

  • Buran.3796Buran.3796 Member ✭✭✭✭
    Twin Pistols

    ^ With no evades/blocks, no mobility skills and a few ones which portray problems with unleveled terrain and perform particulary bad in the PvP arenas the short bow seems specifically designed to be bad at PvP, and solving its would need such drastic rework that the changes in off hand sword would pale in comparison. But that hypothetical changes probably would mess the condi Renegade performance, in the only dps build which prevents Rev from being banned from raids, so isn't gona happen.

    Which maybe is good, due changing the short bow won't provide a ranged condition build to neither core Rev or Herald. What this class needs for competitive ranged condi builds is a new core weapon, not linked to specializations. A single main hand pistol would have worked when the off hand sword provided the block (so a gap closer or mobility skill + 2 condi attacks would be enough). But now the sword doesn't block, so you need five skills to make something viable.

    True, The choice on core is really limited. But I don't see A.net creating a new weapon set for core unless they have a concept for an elite specialisation that would need both weapon sets to work.

    Mesmers shoot magic out of their greatsword. Balthazar literally telepathically swung it around and hit you with it.

    • Main hand axe should be a new core revenant weapon without specializations. A ranged throwing axe that deals conditions, so they can have a second ranged weapon and a second condition weapon without specializations, to complete their core set, like how they got a trident to complete the underwater set
    • For a new specialization, since they got a support/tank weapon with herald and and a condition/dps weapon with renegade, they should get a power/control weapon. A 2h greatsword or an offhand mace could work for that.

  • Shao.7236Shao.7236 Member ✭✭✭
    Main-hand Axe

    It honestly irks me to think that we are gonna need to use a slot for another new weapon. Can't we just get one whether it's an elite or not? They did it with the Trident. Revenant really needs some love in terms of ranged main-hand for core, again as an example with the Trident having legend specific effects, I would take a rework like that any day as long as it works just as great as the synergy in between all weapons that we have currently because yes indeed despite the lack of weapons, they do still work pretty well at doing hybrid tasks.

    My only thinking is that it might be unlikely to ever get a ranged main-hand since if you look at the other frontliners, only the guardian has one and it's rather slow. I would assume they just want us to be very frontal with heavies. Greatsword is extremely likely, but throwing axe or dagger would be pretty neat to have as for Pistols I doubt it. Mace/Axe is pretty good as it stands for conditions at mid range, whether it's applying weakness or torment, even Banish Enchantment does a pretty good job to ease pressure so, unlikely as well.

    Revenants in that new Living World map Dragonfall have land spears. Talking about the NPC. But I rather have Greataxe or Greatsword. Still cool though. I want melee though so I prefer the two two hander melee weapons i mentioned above.

    Well, I kinda want to have a reason to craft Verdararch because the draw effect is just so beautiful, but really I am resigned to it being greatsword, if the day of new elite specs is ever to come.

    I dont care what the weapon is as long as its a power spec now that we got the condi spec and the ranged condi weapon checked off. It should have a power legend that goes good with shiro and has a good leap and good cc.

    Any legends based on gw2 plot relevant spoilers are super unlikely to happen so if everyone can stop requesting Eir/Trahearne/Balthazar/etc that’d be great

  • Blue.1207Blue.1207 Member ✭✭✭

    Definitely greatsword. Thematically awesome, and logically fills a huge niche that Rev currently lacks: bursty/high sustained power dps.

    You can already see the exact build now: Greatsword + Sword/Sword. Invo, Dev, "New Elite spec". Setup burst w/ gs + new spec, swap to shiro + s/s for sustain, repeat.

    Boring? Depends on the bling. Inspiring? Depends on the flair. Desperately needed? Yes absolutely.

    Twin pistols, because how bizarre would that be?

  • Twin Pistols

    In a perfect world we would have GS as a core weapon, then dw pistols for the elite spec. imagine dw pistols are mid to close range massive aoe dmg(closer=more dmg) while GS focused target close-mid burst dmg(same: closer=BIG dmg but at mid distance you can at least reach the enemy). Anyone wants to kill some demons, huh?
