Guild Wars 2 Reveals a New Specialized Class – Chronomancer
ArenaNet wants you to meet the Chronomancer: Mesmer’s Elite Specialization and its looks awesome.
The Chronomancer is one of many Elite Specialization that will be accessible once the expansion pack Heart of Thorns is released for Guild Wars 2.
According to the Guild Wars to Article:
Specializing in chronomancy grants mesmers access, through traits and skills, to a new effect called alacrity. Alacrity functions as the inverse of chill by speeding up skill recharges rather than slowing them down. Chronomancy is the only specialization allowed access to this powerful effect, and chronomancers can share alacrity with allies in limited situations, making them an incredibly powerful ally to have in any party.
One of the specialization’s minor traits allows chronomancers to grant alacrity to themselves every time an illusion shatters. Maintaining a good shattering cadence can greatly enhance your effectiveness over a prolonged battle. Phantasm builds shouldn’t feel left out, though, since other skills can give alacrity to your illusions, making them attack even more often.
The class looks very interesting to play as and there seems to be plenty of skills and abilities to master and create you own playstyle. There even a small video to show of the class in action.
