In our continuing look at all things Guild Wars 2, we take a look at the Mesmer, one of the professions that players are instantly familiar with due to its presence in the original Guild Wars. Read on!
During the recent press beta event, I spent most of my time in Guild Wars 2 as the Engineer, but I also got a good amount of time with the Mesmer. The Mesmer is a unique blend of magic, crowd control, boons and debuffs making for a very interesting profession that will definitely make players think in order to best experience all it has to offer. There's nothing in any other MMO (except maybe GW1), and fans of tricky professions will love how the Mesmer focuses on creating illusions, shattering them, and making the enemy look like a horse's arse in general. It's the kind of profession that starts off slow, but turns into something really special as the options open up. But then, that's the beauty of character progression in general, isn't it? Let's take a look at some of the stock skills, from the official site.
