Combat Mechanics Detailed; Elementalist Revealed - Guild Wars 2 -'s Michael Bitton breaks down part one of Guild Wars 2 Lead Designer Eric Flannum's two-part feature on combat and the newly revealed Elementalist profession.

Yesterday we were treated to a massive reveal of Guild Wars 2 in the form of a lengthy blog post by ArenaNet studio Mike O'Brien on the newly launched ArenaNet blog. Mike's post outlined three problematic areas with MMO game design and what ArenaNet's plans were with Guild Wars 2 to address them. In doing so, Mike hinted at two things we'd be hearing more about today: the Elementalist class, and combat.

The Elementalist was teased in a few examples Mike used to illustrate various points about the game's combat systems, such as the fact the Elementalist would have access to the "Stone Boots" trait that would prevent them from being knocked back, or the fact they could combine their various spells to devastating effectsm etc. Today, ArenaNet has officially unveiled the Elementalist via one part of a two-part feature by Guild Wars 2 Lead Designer Eric Flannum.

Read all about it here.
