The Revenant Revealed

The Revenant Revealed - MMORPG.com

The 9th and newest profession being added to Guild Wars 2 with the Heart of Thorns expansion has just been profiled in-depth over at the official site. A Master of the Mists, the Revenant will wield actual spirits from the past of Tyria in his fight against Mordremoth.

ArenaNet has a very long, comprehensive blog post that  explains how Revenants connect to the past via the Mists by being able to access two Legends at a time. One Legend is active, one inactive, with the active Legend determining what skills are present on the right half of the bar. "It’s similar to weapon swapping, but instead it affects your healing, utility, and elite skills."

Revenant weapons are tied to the Legends they wield. They can utilize hammers in new (and fast) ways. Maces and axes become directional weapons that can deal massive amounts of damage as long as players adhere to the way they are facing opponents.

Legends themselves give players new stances, each with attendant boosts to damage or protection:

  • Legendary Demon Stance
  • Legendary Dwarf Stance
Lastly, for this particular article:
 
New boons, conditions, and status effects have been added to the revenant as well as spread across other professions’ specializations. These are cool ways we’ll allow players to interact with new types of skills in our combat system.
