Dr Doggs.4059 Posted April 29, 2018 Share Posted April 29, 2018 Guildwars 1 was full of many surprises when the Factions and Nightfall expansion were released. Both were released with 2 new classes.Factions : Ritualist's and Assasin'sNightfall : Dervish and ParagonAll popular classes but none really integrated into Guildwars 2. In recent events a new package in the Gem store which changes the appearance of your Outfit as the Primeval Dervish Outfit and the Suntouched Scythe Skin. Due to the current game settings 3 of the classes above will not work in Guildwars 2 based on the way that it is set up now with no intent of ever releasing the 3 classes fans were most intent on playing. In the prior game of Guildwars 1 these 3 classes that have not been integrated into Guildwars 2 as a result in too many similarities between Class Specialization and Classes themselves. Could we expect a release of these character's in the future expansions of Guildwars 2 or deem them dead classes. My interpretation of what to expect is that these classes are not deemed dead but are being worked into the game as a new elite specialization in years to come. Given the current path of the Necromancer the ability to conjure the dead to attack and follow with you. We can expect if there is ever going to be a release of the Ritualist it will be an elite specialization for the Necromancer. The Ritualists ability to conjure dead spirits with low regard for holding back seems like a specialization that could be released for the Necromancer in future builds. But can this be expected we can only wish. Onto the Dervish, Given the current game settings in Guildwars 2 the Dervish class would never be released due to its extreme similarities to the Guardian, A character eligible to tank and suppress enemy fire. But how could this be integrated how could they ever bring back the Dervish. With my thoughts it would be a new Warrior Elite Specialization. The warrior is a prime candidate for the Dervish Class a heavy armor character full of tank but low regard for heal. And how is it a prime candidate for the Dervish Subclass you ask? THE WARRIOR has not had the staff class released to him with any of his elite specializations. We will not see a new weapon type in the game because its too costly and too time consuming to create a scythe weapon drop throughout the game. But with the staff we can change its appearances and maybe a new legendary staff that's a super sweet and sick scythe from within one of the living worlds. Could this happen i sure hope it does. Finally the Paragon, Atlass i am out of ideas for the Paragon and how it could be integrated into Guildwars 2. The only way i could ever see the Paragon being released would be towards a ranger and instead of any weapon type people would want it would be a shield for the ranger. Given this was one of the least played classes and to me was one of the hardest to ever understand. Truth for Thought. How do you throw a spear at an enemy and expect it to automatically regenerate for re use. Am i carrying a backpack full of spears No.... But given the current ranger's ability for long range attack the Paragon would be the ability to use a shield on the Ranger With its audience being the ability to buff surrounding allys in raids. Yes we all have a cronotank but this would need to be further looked into as an additional outlook to making the paragon class come back. Could we ever expect these classes to return. I sure hope so and would take time and development and money. But Guildwars 2 isn't going anywhere anytime soon so with future development all we can do is hope these arrive with full satisfaction. Thank you everyone who took the time to read my rant and ideas. I'm just a fellow GW2 Player looking to rant and discuss. Post your ideas thoughts on how they could be integrated or even if you believe they could be used with other classes. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
