I'd love for it to be ranged and heavily Paragon-themed.

But given this is about Warrior, it's far more likely going to be yet another melee power weapon.

It'll probably be range but given anets history with warriors you'll have to retrieve it after every throw.

Spear autos velocity is bound to be slow. It's not a gun, it's not a bow.
And slow projectiles are easily evaded.

Unless it's the  "needs precise aiming" spear which then will likely be allowed to have both damage and velocity.
If not then I'd like a hybrid weapon (melee/range) where ranged part is left to abilities with a cd, as these are likely to not suck.
Underwater version of spear after some modernization and skill replacing where needed (burst, skill 5) is a good start.

Most importantly however, I would like an option to boost these ranged abilities to the levels of meta dps ranged builds on other professions.
Ofc for a price/risk. If you play right - spear goes brrr. If not you pay a high price for a wasted opportunity.

Well spears are confirmed to be 2H, but I would be pretty upset about ranged spear when they could just buff Rifle to not be completely garbage. 

Rifle did get some buffs last year around this time, would be nice if we could finish the job by unrooting Killshot, letting brutal shot shoot before rolling and buffing damage numbers a bit in PVE.

To be fair though, the same patch they gutted Arc Divider, nerfed Gunflame and removed most cooldown reductions in warrior trait lines. So im always a little sceptical towards the monkeys paw balancing going on.

Imo, rifles got more problems than just essentially damage, nonexhaustively being extremely low utility in our power crept world, and most damningly being bad at feeding itself adrenaline to spam it's burst skill.
