Ventari - The New Revenant Legend

Ventari - The New Revenant Legend - MMORPG.com

ArenaNet has revealed the next legend that will be associated with the new Revenant profession when the Guild Wars 2 expansion, Heart of Thorns, launches later this year. Ventari will become the first Guild Wars 2 profession that will utilize a staff as a melee weapon.

The Ventari will become the first Guild Wars 2 profession that will utilize a staff as a melee weapon that will be specifically focused on a combination of magical and martial styles. Ventari becomes a support profession that can heal allies and knock back enemies by standing within range.

Rejuvenating Assault - “Cleave foes around you with your staff, creating healing orbs for you and your allies.”

This skill is the third part of the autoattack chain. When you strike foes with this skill, shards of energy will fly off onto the ground around the target. You or your allies can walk over these for a small amount of healing. This encourages strafing around your target to pick up the orbs as you attack, and it creates more interaction between you and your allies. We wanted to promote healing through offense rather than as a passive effect.

The core of the Revenant's healing abilities comes in the form of the Ventari Tablet. Every skill will utilize the tablet in one way or another, thus requiring players to communicate and interact with allies.

Once the Legendary Centaur Stance is activated, the Tablet will be summoned that will bring the five legend-based skills onto the bar.

Skills include:

  • Ventari's Will: The Tablet passes through allies and heals them but will require strategic placement to be most effective
  • Protective Solace: A barrier is summoned that will knock back enemies that will destroy the Tablet but leave shards on the ground that, if walked over, heal allies
  • Energy Expulsion: An elite skill that will dismiss the Tablet, knock back enemies, interrupt skills and heal allies walking over the remaining shards
The Revenant's Ventari Legend will be shown off by the devs:
 
ArenaNet will showcase the first in-game look at the Ventari when Cronacher joins host Rubi Bayer on Points of Interest, airing this Friday, June 5, at 12 p.m. PDT on the official Guild Wars 2 Twitch channel (http://www.twitch.tv/guildwars2).
