Geoff Fey.1035 Posted September 10, 2021 Share Posted September 10, 2021 I've been wandering around a lot and I am incredibly curious why so many people believe (aggressively) that this teaser is the Revenant and not the Thief? To the point where there's posts lamenting that the entire 3rd Beta weekend will be all Medium classes. The below are my speculations on this but I would very much like to hear people's reasoning as to why they think one way or another. Reasons that it's the Revenant: Gloves - Heavy Bounty Hunter armour gloves have the spikes on the front. The lack of ridges and elbow spikes is artistic license and difficulty to see with silhouette Boots - Spearmarshal's Armour boots for the spiked toes and form fitting nature of around calf. Colour - Revenant historically has Reds and Blues for its colouration, ranging from Turquoise to Dark Blue from Herald to Renegade Blue Flames - Revenant is more "spellcaster" than the Thief and has a history of having "flames" or flame-like-mist-energy flowing from them. It would make sense to have the Revenant summoning a weapon or casting flames moreso than a Thief. Spoiler Leaked Weapon Greatsword - the size of the weapon implies it's a greatsword in addition to the long handle for 2-handers. Reasons that it's Thief Spoiler Leaked Weapon Scepter - ANet has already set a precedent with Thief specifically in that they take a ranged spellcaster weapon and turn it into a melee brawler weapon with unique animations not found anywhere else. Scepter skins are also very large with exceptionally long handles, it would not be difficult to reskin it as a broadsword. Chest Armour - Longer coat with tassels. The Elite Spec teasers thus far for EoD have largely used existing armours or artistic designs that's similar yet different to current armours. I've scoured the Heavy Armour gallery and cannot find anything even remotely close to the armour style in this silhouette barring the gloves (mentioned above). Colour - Thief historically is Red & Maroon but has lately had severe overlap with Revenant with the Deadeye/Renegade Elite Specs. The red on the picture seems more blood splatter in design rather than the energy style that Revenant typically has Mask - The horned mask is similar to an Oni Mask implied by the Elite Spec icons. Have not seen an argument as to how any Elite except the Revenant would have the Ritualist looking icon, which begs the question as to how this Oni Mask would not tie to the mask Elite Spec icon. In addition the flowing headband being similar to an existing style. 1 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
