Guild Wars 2 Warrior professions

Warrior classes are not normally all that appealing to me in RPGs. A warrior’s core ability is usually “hit things”, with their specialist skills usually boiling down to “hit things harder”. The Guild Wars 2 warrior, though, seems a bit different. Guild Wars 2 places a lot of emphasis on the exact type of weapon you’re currently using, and the warrior profession takes this to the extreme, allowing very different abilities for each weapon. Crucially, the warrior can equip two weapon sets, and switch between them during combat, allowing the warrior to be extremely versatile.

It sometimes seems like we’ve been waiting decades for the release of Guild Wars 2, so much so that I’ve been trying not to get too excited about it because I can’t sustain that level of excitement for that long. With the potential release date now firmly within our lifetimes, I’ve allowing myself a teensy treat, and have taken a look at the available Guild Wars 2 classes.

Classes in Guild Wars 2 are actually referred to as “professions”, which is quite confusing for those of us more used to playing World of Warcraft, but which makes sense within the context of the game. There will be eight professions available, each of which brings with it unique abilities, mechanics and playstyles. Let’s take a look at what we know so far.
