The introduction included videos and Guild Wars 2s of Elementalist ArenaNet released before made us crazy. And now they have lifted the veil of the second profession Warrior, but the warrior in Guild Wars 2 is very special because he can use not only the mace or greatsword as a traditional melee attacker but also long bow to cause to inflict area-of-effect damage and rifle as a ranged DPSer. Professions in Guild Wars 2 are filled with mysterious elements, and let's check one of them the warrior out.

"Axe or Mace? Rifle or Greatsword? You know, the're all good."

The warrior is a master of weapons who relies on speed, strength, toughness, and heavy armor to survive in battle. A warrior can shrug off blow after blow to stay in the fight, all the while building up adrenaline to fuel his offense.


Guild Wars 2 - Warrior Skill: Stomp

Adrenaline makes the warrior more powerful, increasing his damage output with every attack while powering up his burst skill. Each weapon set has a single designated burst skill which a warrior can trigger by spending all his built-up adrenaline to unleash a powerful attack. The warrior can use his burst skill at any time, but the more adrenaline stages he has filled, the more devastating his attack will be. Some burst skills apply more and varying conditions while others simply do more damage.

Each weapon serves a different role, allowing the warrior to customize his play style. Warriors can compliment main hand weapons like swords and maces with a shield, warhorn or dual wielded weapon, but their role is still mostly defined by the main or two-handed weapon.


Guild Wars 2 - Warrior Skill: Eviscerate

A SWORD warrior is quick and mobile; he bleeds his enemies as he bounces between them with a Savage Leap.

An AXE warrior quickly builds up his adrenaline and can deliver powerful spike attacks.

A HAMMER warrior pounds his foes and the ground with area attacks that stagger groups of enemies.

A warrior with a MACE disrupts his enemies with powerful stunning attacks, and hits them where it hurts leaving them susceptible to further blows.
