Thoughts On Underwater Combat

Thoughts On Underwater Combat - Guild Wars 2 -

If you heard a small girlish "SQUEE!" when you logged into, that was only Managing Editor Bill Murphy as he read about Guild Wars 2 and its just-announced underwater combat. Bill has a few thoughts to share about the revelation so be sure to swing by the Staff Blog and then let Bill know your thoughts as well.

This isn't just killing some pirates off the coast of the Wetlands while floating in a 3-axis space. This is pulling on a breathing device ( which I hope has an animation). This is a whole new way to stave off dying, a whole new set of underwater-specific spells and skills. This is worlds and cultures to explore under the surface of that satin sheen. This is different sorts of weapons depending on your class and how you prefer to fight... I mean who doesn't want to use a harpoon gun and chase a white whale in Tyria? Heck, even the AOE spells now adhere to the total 3D nature of being under water.
