You might be a fan of playing Elementalist in Guild Wars 2 and not be too excited about the Tempest’s choice of weapon. War horns do sound kind of annoying, after all. But take heart: Among the hard data revealed for the specialization on Friday was the promise of new war horn sounds, thus ensuring that you don’t have to listen to the old version over and over as you wield the raw and overloaded power of the elements in battle.
If you’re more curious about numbers than simple sound effects, you’re still in luck, as the livestream unpacked lots of hard data and should give you a picture of how the overloads and the new weapon skills will work in play. Check out the summary to get a picture of the spec ahead of playing it for yourself; it’s as much a new take on the class playstyle as the other elite specializations have been.
