    Probably but with the current skills, it's hard to imagine what else they can come out with when it's already such a strong profession.

    Why is everyone so crazy about Greatswords? i have seen this behavior not only with Revenant, but also with every other profession which cant use Greatswords yet.

    So, what's the deal with this weapon?

    Fall down seven times, get up eight.

    If it’s a core weapon it’s a offhand cause we only have 2 on core.

    That’s why I think next trait should be a core one.

    Give me focus as core and scepter tied to a new elite.

    I would 100% be okay with a Core Focus and an Elite Scepter. Idc how it happens I just want Scepter + Focus. Binding of Ipos and Xiuquatl baby

    Healing orbs are a mistake. Please delete them ANet.

    So, what's the deal with this weapon?

    1) Arguably, the 4 legendary greatswords are amongst the best looking weapons in the game. In fact most other legendary weapons at the begining were so "low effort" and lacking in terms of effects and implementation that were considered a can of trash near to Surise/Twilight/Eternity. Still today there's at least half dozen of hammers with better looks than The Colossus or Sharur...
    2) Greatswords are big, two handed swords. In history they (swords) were mainly sidearms, with spears and bows being the real war weapons which did most of the kills along the time until gun powder changed the "game". And swords have attached some mythical and romantic features, like being able to cut chain armor/metal plates and some other ridiculos kitten. Full armors turns swords into garbage almost instantly, but swords looks shiny and nice to9 they are cool, despite if the works needs to be done better be sure to have a poleaxe/bec du corbin or just a plain halbard on your hands. But most of people ignore this and want they heroes to wield absurdly over-sized two handed No Dachis which can cut black holes in half.

    There's also only two mainhand weapons - sword and mace.

    Yah but I find more urgent a core offhand, because if we end on having just 2 offhands we won’t have much choice on offhands when getting elite main hand weapons.

    But if it’s a elite GS close range gameplay would be nice, we only have sword at melee, with bushido mantras :)

    We could have 2 more legends from factions, Vizu(nika mother) for dual daggers and some avicara has legend for Gs.

    600-900 range would be interesting

    Yuuup, Core Off-Hand. We need it. Seriously.

  • Yasai.3549Yasai.3549 Member ✭✭✭

    We need more off and mainhands.

    If I play a stupid build, I deserve to die.

    Core ones at least one more.... if ends being elite... we won’t be able to mix weapons that much besides shield, sword axe, for elite main hand weapons as I stated above.

    One could easily reverse the logic when it comes to elite specs with offhand weapons.

    Herald shield, for instance, has nothing on it that really says it should be used in melee, except possibly that Envoy of Exuberance has a faster effect if it doesn't have to fly out and back as far. If there was a ranged mainhand weapon, a healing-oriented herald could run RangedMainhand/Shield and Staff, giving them a ranged option without sacrificing support potential (apart from the support you can get from blasting firefields on mace, I guess).

    Personally, given a choice between more mainhand weapons and more offhand weapons, I'd prefer the former. Mainhand weapons offer a more significant change of your capabilities and playstyle, and I'd rather not see another case like chronomancer having five potential offhands and only two mainhands to go with them.

    Either way, ArenaNet has shown a willingness to create an elite spec with both a mainhand and an offhand (spellbreaker), so if any future elite specialisation really does have a weapon that doesn't work well with the existing pairups, it can get two (even if they have to be dualwielding the same weapon to do that). I'm more concerned about fixing the problems revenant already has than imagining problems for future elite specs.
