Maybe I'm reading too much about this, but I believe the devs dropped a hint at what could be the next weapons for elite specs (if and when they get released). After the Icebrood Saga presentation, it looked like we wouldn't be getting any elite specs any soon. That is, until this interview came up, where Mike Z gives elite specs as an example of things that could be part of the Saga.
That morsel of information and today's patch have re-invigorated my passion for this game. And so I went to the wiki and found this image from their intial presentation. We can see Jhavi (she looks quite necromancer-y), Rytlock (Revenant extraordinaire) and Braham (the Guardian) sporting some weird weapons for their classes. Jhavi's using Axe Main-hand + Shield Off-hand, Rytlock is using Sohothin with both hands (albeit he tends to wield it like this in promotional materials) and Braham's using Mace Off-hand.
Could this be a sneaky teaser for upcoming elite specs? Honestly, Necro Shield, Renenant Greatsword and Guardian OH Mace don't look too interesting to me, but maybe some of you can come up with great ideas for specs that could weild those weapons? Let's all hope we get elite specs sooner rather than later!
Cheers all and enjoy the Prologue!
