Hence "relatively recent". And regardless of the PCs abilities the associations remain the same. Mesmers are scholars not soldiers.When you see better profession distribution in the Vigil, or even among the combat division of the Priory, it will be a sign things have changed further. The top tier is clearly meant for combat but grunts need to display that more for perceptions in and out of game to change. It started at the very start of the video for me."Recent" to me is like, within a few years. Not "since GW1" as 250+ years have passed. IIRC, a Gw1 nightfall hero started the Weaver trend post nightfall. Vigil, Priory, Whispers, and Lionguard all show a variety of types of soldier. The White mantle showcased a huge variation of troop professions. Mesmers are a "scholar" class, but have never been shown or implied to not be completely and totally capable of combat, in GW1 or GW2.This is the first time I've ever seen people imply Mesmers are not meant for combat. I'm frankly surprised, given how major a role the White mantle mesmers play in their operations, teleporting troops into the center of DR, aiding and harassing foes alongside their fellow soldiers, etc. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
