Revenant Elite Specialization Revealed as The Herald

Revenant Elite Specialization Revealed as The Herald -

The Guild Wars 2 site has been updated with a blog post that reveals the Revenant's elite specialization called the "Herald". Notably, the Herald specialization gives revenants the option to use a shield as an off-hand weapon.

The herald's skills are considered support through boons, utility and personal defense and will dovetail nicely with other legendaries for group utility.

The Legendary Dragon Stance comes via the legend Glint, a character from the original game who predicted much of what has subsequently come to pass. She is representative of upkeep skills.

Some of the Herald's skills are:

  • Envoy of Exuberance - dragon energy emits from the Herald's shield protecting allies as it passes through them. On reaching the end of its arc, it will explode with healing energy
  • Crystal Hibernation - a personal defense skill that protects the Herald with an energy shield that heals and makes the character immune to damage
  • Facet of Elements - all players in the immediate vicinity will be granted swiftness
  • Elemental Blast - dragon breath covers an area and applies negative conditions (chill, weakness, burning) and is considered a 'soft control' skill
  • Facet of Chaos - the Herald can grant protection to nearby allies
  • Chaotic Release - Heralds consume Facet of Chaos that controls foes and grants allies super speed
  • Facet of Nature - this is used to boost other facets, allies, traits and skills. Boons duration increases by 50%
  • One with Nature - boosts facets' effectiveness by boosting all boons
Underwater, Heralds will also have access to several unique skills:
  • Spear of Anguish - a ranged attack that releases condition damage
  • Rapid Assault - fast physical attack that stacks vulnerability
  • Venomous Sphere - as the spear travels, poison is inflicted on all it passes through that can add condition damage, prevent healing, etc.
  • Frigid Discharge - as Venomous Sphere travels, there will be an option to use Frigid Discharge that causes an explosion for burst damage
  • Rift Containment - two rifts, one over and the other under, are summoned to trap an enemy. After a few seconds they dissipate to form a barrier
You can read the full details on the Herald on the Guild Wars 2 site.
