There are some unused Class Concepts that were initially made by ANet, to eventually become new Classes for GW1 via Standalone Games.. and if EotN wouldn't have become just an Add On, but like Factions, and Nightfall a complete own Standalone Game, then I'm pretty sure these two lost Class Concepts I mention now would have eventually become part of the game.
There was basically another lost Class Concept, but that has been already implemented into the Game as one of the Games Elite Specializations in a great an theme/class fitting way.
I'm talking about the Chronomancer logically now.
But my second question thread of three is now about two other lost Concept Classes from GW1, where I think, they are absolutely missing and should definetely find game as well too in form of new added Elite Specializations, so that the works and efforts about those concepts wasn't wasted in the end.
I'm speaking now exactly about the lost Class Concepts of the Summoner and the Bard!!!
What where back in the time of EotN the reasons, not to implement those concepts still via EotN into the game?
Can we somewhen see the Summoner as one of the Elementalist's Elite Specializations, one that is focused and specialized heavily around Conjured Weapons and especially Summons like the summoned Elementals, to brign all this Gameplay of the Class summonung and conjuring thigns of to a next higher design level, so that these gameplay aspects of the Elementalist will make alot more fun to play as Summoner-Specialization for the Elementalist?
While a Bard would be a perfect addition as Elite Specialization for the Mesmer in my honest opinion, as it is the game's class, that is focused aroudn inspiration and Music is all about inspiration. They have been by design also already from begin on the only class, which has with Siren's Call a sound/music based skill. I think there woudl be so much more potential to make usage of for the Mesmer, if they'd get a Bard/Minstrel like Elite Specialisation, which can this way brign back also one of the Mesmers core gameplay aspects back into GW2 - ECHOES.. so the automatic repeat of previous effects by an Echo and they could bring back the Chants from paragons as an upgraded form of Shouts, so that this gameplay gets finally to a REAL bard class then.
Just as visual reminder:
