Interesting. the last skill 'shield with pistol' reminds me of the new Captain America movie and the very first sequence is the Engineer turret skill from Warhammer Online.

Looks nice though and nothing bad in taking inspiration from other games or movies.

I agree with you 100%. After seeing the Thief it killed my interest a little bit and then after what I just saw I am completely over this game. SWToR please don't let me down...

I knew this class was coming and honestly thought it would be the class I would play.... However after this video, it looks to be the most uninspired class.  Guess I am rolling a Asura warrior (or guardian)

I never liked SW:ToR combat animations much and never claimed it to have fast pace action. Then I watch this GW2 video and I'm seeing the same slow paced, scripted and rather uninspiring combat as SW:ToR. Are games going backwards in innovation or are the trailers being made just boring as hell.

I'm sad you guys don't like the vids... I personally was impressed and it made me wanna pick up GW2 even more.  At first when I saw the title "Engineer" I didn't think it was going to work out too well in a fantasy setting, but remembering this is 200 years after GW1 and also that I myself am a huge fan of Steampunk, I quickly got over it and fell in love.  Rolling an Engineer.

Rhoklaw, you dont think this is like how combat works in GW2 right?  cause so far from what we know combat is very actiony and if you stay still you wont be surviving for very long

@needalife214: I'm not saying anything except for what these videos show me. I didn't like GW2 fans coming to ToR videos saying how boring the combat looked when they were right. Problem is, GW2 videos are looking just as bland. So which is it, two piss poor combat action lacking MMO's or just some really bad scripted trailers that do neither game justice? Either way, I'm not impressed with either games combat atm.

If u put a Team Fortress Class, might as well put the Pyro, at least it's fun. I've never been fond of engineers myself. This class, however, looks too much like a mix of so many diff abilities that it'll be a jack of all trades and not excel anywhere. 

Maybe it can be specced as CC, but well, doesn't look fantasy at all to me. Why not giving him a tank as a mount while we at it.

Lol is it because some GW2 fanatics decided to rag on the game you like that you decided to pop over and do the same? If yes, that's just sad.

The great thing about GW2 gameplay is you can play it like a traditonal game (to which you will die more often) or you play it like it's meant to be played (with dodging and using your skills sensibly and situationally) but TOR doesn't have this option, you can play it only one way and that way has been done to death. Now obviously the videos aren't an accurate depiction of how both games would play but we can definitely say that TOR's vids are more in line with how it will play mainly because they've already stated what their combat is like and we've seen it. On the other hand, due to the fact that GW2 can be played in different ways, its hard to find a vid that shows someone using the full capabilities the gameplay allows because of the short sessions people have with them. The only time you can get a real visceral feeling to the gameplay is when a dev plays it or when people switch to weapons that make their characters more mobile, then you get to seem some active dodging and character placement.

If you don't like steampunk don't play GW2 it is that simpel :). Tyria is in its steampunk/clockwork age now, magick is still very big but steam and clockwork mechanics are growing as well.

First off, I don't think you read both my video comments correctly. Seeing as I said both games video library have been pretty reluctant to show any combat thats innovative. Sure, GW2 has faster paced combat with more interaction, but it's not exactly ground breaking either. I do like the video that you linked much more than this one, but thats the point of my comment. Why are gaming companies using scripted and uninspiring trailers to advertise their game? Thats what I was trying to get at.

I actually find some of the trailers (both TOR and GW2) quite entertaining. Just a matter of taste I guess.

yeah I find that awkward too.. I'd like to see more some pro gameplay that shows the potential..

on the other hand, this is skill compilation, not engineer gameplay

So basicly this is a mix between WAR engineer, his turret and abilities and Rifts bomb-throwing grenadier. kinda neat

Guys don't forget this takes place 400 years after GW 1, think about how far we came in 400 years, we went from hourse and buggie to the Moon, so it only makes sense that society advances.

This videos only show you a few skills from a given profession, that's it, they are not meant to show you combat, they are meant only to show you what the skill looks like and what it does on mobs. I believe you are looking for PVP videos or videos where the user is put to the test.

I do not see anything that looks like a Tauren.  I feel like you are saying the Charr do, except those are based roughly off of a cat.  To me a charr does not seem like a stolen idea...

Also, I do not feel like this is the "same old fantasy world" either...  Time will tell.

I see those who fetishise fantasy as a magic = medieval thing are out in full force, here, too. Noap, clockwork technology has never been an aspect of fantasy, despite it having had its place in the fantasy genre for years and years. /sarcasm

One thing I keep noticing: MMORPG gamers don't read much. Really, read more. Reading is important - and I'm not just talking about comments threads and Internet boards, either. Reading will enrich your idea of what a fantasy setting can be.

But here's a quick 101 for those that need it:

Fantasy == A fantastic setting that involves things that have no direct parallels with our reality. This can and does include clockpunk and steampunk, and under the umbrella of science-fantasy it includes the likes of atompunk and dieselpunk, too. Even Star Wars is considered science-fantasy.

Fantasy != A restrictive, boring, staid, and ultimately unimaginative medieval setting, with magic just tacked on. Perhaps with elements of grimdark just thrown in so it can be 'mature.'

That said, some replies in no particular order...


So an engineer looks like a spy, and a technologically advanced race of giant cats looks like a tribal race of minotaurs? Really? Well then...

I think you might need glasses, and some training in the cognitive fields of recognition and association. :p

Not to mention that I'd like you to point out one other MMORPG game that has a factory city (the Black Citadel) in it, really, just try. I'll be here and I'll be watching. This is anything but the same old pap. This actually has some pretty progressive and modern approaches to fantasy in it, the sort one usually finds only in books.

I think it's refreshing.


Right. Since clockpunk has never been an established subgenre of fantas--oh, wait. MMORPG gamers really don't read much, do they? Just had to drive that point home.


It's not steampunk, it's clockpunk, and it plays a massive role in the game with one race even being dedicated to it (after 250 years of advancement in the field). So all I can say is that you're probably not going to be a fan of Guild Wars 2 as a whole.

You can even see charr clockpunk technology in the human capitol of Divinity's Reach. The agrarian technology they use for watering their crops, for example.
