What is Jhavi’s profession?

Jhavi wears light armor, uses a shield and axe. She looks like a Necro theme.

Bonus question: have we seen that shield skin in the promo before? It looks lIke Raven feathers are on it.

    That's a norn cultural light armor set, so she could be any light armored profession. Axe and shield could be Mesmer.

    So the first npc with both elite specs? axe mirrage and chronomancer shield.
    Only light armor it could be is a new necromancer elite spec since they can have axe main hand now but not shield, unless its a conjured shield or axe skin then it can be a elementalist aswell.

    I thought she held a mace and shield, could be warrior or guardian.

    likely an elite spec of Necromancer or something.

  • Wasn't she stated to be a mesmer, somewhere around when they published the "magazine"?

    Laranthir and the Pale Reavers do things with Rifles no Warrior or Deadeye could hope to match...

    I've wondered about this, since adventures often require rifle shots of 20,000 or so range, yet the player character often struggles to shoot over 1200-1500 units in practice. Is the player characters rifle sub paar, or is the commander a bad shot in combat?

    It's the difference between infantry and snipers. Infantry uses assault rifles which, even using stealth and hunting techniques for precision shots, have effective ranges at a few hundred yards (~300-400m). Military snipers/snipe teams can hit precision targets well over 2 miles away (3-4km). The Commander isn't a bad shot, far from it, but Laranthir and the Reavers are just that much better at it.

    Likewise with the weaponry. Our Rifles aren't inferior per se, but they're designed for assaulting enemies and fighting off ambushes, while Pale Reaver snipers are for setting their own ambushes. In short: our Rifles are for taking ground, theirs are for protecting it.

    If we want ANet to step up their game, then we must step up ours.

    Not with a light armor set.

    With a shield? :o

    The point is, unique and special characters do things that don't fit into the PC's skill sets.

    That is true.

    I'd like to point out that before HoT released Marjory got to use a great sword and later, after the expansion and all features were announced, Anet confirmed that it was done as a teaser for the elite spec.

    So a shield for necro, coinciding with a upcoming death magic rework which heavily focuses on stacking toughness and general tankines; make of that what you will.

    Although as this topic shows there are also numerous examples of NPCs using weapons not accessible to their profession, right back to the base game, which so far haven't become available to players. I wouldn't get too attached to the idea that a specific one will become available to players.

    And you know all the long while, It's the journey that you seek
    It's the miles of moving forward, With the wind beneath your wings"

  • Necromancer Munne in Guild Wars 1 wields a hammer in close combat. Waiting for this elite spec for about 15 years.
