Druid - Ranger Elite Specialization - A Healing Dynamo -

During today's TwitchCon panel, ArenaNet and the Guild Wars 2 team revealed the first details about the Ranger-Druid that is expected to bring powerful healing to the game in a manner that no other specialization has. The Druid is a staff-wielding specialization.

You can read the full details on the Guild Wars 2 Reddit, but here are a few details:

Staff Skills

  • Solar Beam: Any ally between you and the target that are caught inside the beam will be healed by you. 3 Pulses, 1200 range. The healing numbers you see on the tooltips are without stats so they will be better ingame.
  • Astral Wisp: Cast a wisp on the target, it will deal damage to the target initially but any ally that it pass through will be healed. Good support for melee characters.
  • Astral Gace: Movement based skill that can you into position. Can be used as an escape or gap closer. Heal allies at the location you end up. It serve also as a burst because it creates a blast finisher at that locale.
  • Vine Surge: Fires off a cascade of vines, shooting toward your enemy to immobilize them. Allies caught in it are freed from movement impairing conditions.
  • Sublime Conversion: Take any damaging projectiles and negate them without actually destroying them. It will turn incoming projectiles into healing projectiles. It will not work on projectiles coming from above so you will need to position yourself so that the projectiles are coming in at an angle and passes through the wall.

Celestial Transform

  • Build up your astral force via attacking/healing, transforming into a Celestial Avatar. Gaining a new set of skills, any glyphs you have turn into celestial forms.
  • Cosmic Ray: No cooldown targeted ground application of straight up strong healing. You can pump out a lot of healing with this skill.
  • Seed of Life: Plant a seed on the ground, when it bursts it heals allies and cleanse conditions. This skill is under review and we might add something else to it in the future.
  • Lunar Impact: Drops a lunar missile on you, dazing enemies and healing allies in the process. It is a pretty strong daze, it is something you can use to break down a break bar.
  • Tidal Surge: A channeled ability that is a huge constantly pulsating heal that heals for over 1k per tick. It also creates a water field and very visible for your allies.
  • Natural Convergence: Immediately start to cripple and harm enemies in the range while you are casting. If this cast is completed, all enemy within range are bleed and immobilized for 5s.
