Mesmer Confirmed

Indirectly. Not a surprise to anyone, but here it is from Wartower interview:

 

Jon Peters: There is one left, so hold on...

DeBussy: Yes, there will be. So listen to me carefully, CAREFULLY!... With only one profession left to be revealed you only have one remaining possibility *clears throat* to 'change my 'MIND'' again.

Eric Flannum: *laughs* Well, we’ll see. We may be able to "change your MIND".

    It'd be highly entertaining if they actually renamed it to Mentalist or Hypnotist.

    If it is not mesmer, I will probably lose it a little bit. I may come partially unhinged.

    WTF? No subscription fee?

    This is obviously another Mesmer hint. However Arenanet could be just a bunch of sick masochists and reveal the Monk profession next. :P

    Then I would have to call my assassin squad :/

     

    On topic: I don't think Anet will risk revealing a non-mesmer type proffesion when they know how many people there are that is waiting for that class :P If they do. There would be 9 classes^^

    I don´t know, im realy curious about this case. You know, why would they give us so many informations about Mesmer and tried so hard to not let Engineer be so clear.. So... If Mesmer its so obvious, why they didnt reveal it today and let us all thinking hard about the last class (eng).??

    Why would they reveal the non-so-obvious Eng and creating anymore doubts about the last class?? I think its gonna be some kind of Mind Controler, but a diferent class, with diferent name...

     

    Edit: I have joined MMORPG.com in 2006, and this is my first post in the forums, just a game like Guild Wars to make me do this.. normaly I just read the posts and log off =P

     Several reasons why to wait the Mesmer for last and released engineer now.

    Build up more hype

    More fine tuning of Mesmer

    Mesmer was pretty much assumed and practically known it will be in GW2

    Let the dust settle of the Engineer profession for the gaming convention this summer.  There are a lot of mixed feelings about it.

    If they are showing off the last and final profession at the gaming convention this year they can show if off the best there in a live demo and not some ability clips off their website.  Mesmer being so highly anticipated and drooled over prolly deserves an unveiling like that.

    Mesmer is a truely a unique and cornerstone class/profession belonging to GW, them not including it in GW2 is like WoW not making the Orc race a playable race.

    Perhaps I'm old and tired, but I think that the chances of finding out what's actually going on are so absurdly remote that the only thing to do is to say, "Hang the sense of it," and keep yourself busy. I'd much rather be happy than right any day.

    Follow the Guide and you will never go wrong...

    If Anet did such a visios act, there would probably be a new terror network in the world. Nerds agianst hyping?

    My son. The day you were born the very staff of Blizzard whispered the name, profit.

    Yeah I feel the same way...mesmer is so iconic for GW that revealing it at a convention and as a last proffesion(Im guessing shortly before beta announcement or release announcement) would create so much hype the hype bar gonna explode

    MMOs played chronologically:
    Runescape,Lineage II, WoW,Tabula Rasa, AoC,Eve Online,Guild Wars, Rift(beta only),SWTOR(beta only),Star Trek Online
    Most fun: Tabula Rasa

    This was a very smart way of managing information by ANet. Instead of giving the players the class many "wanted" to hear, they introduced a brand new class (engineer) that generates a lot of buzz yet may somewhat polorize the playerbase as not everyone will love the concept. Meanwhile, they all but confirm the Mesmer, keeping players hopeful on hearing the good news in the future and will release that information leading up into beta to generate new and powerful buzz for the game.

    Make no mistake, ArenaNet is playing the heart strings of the playerbase like a master musician. I'm impressed by their communication strategy, but moreso by the game itself from what I've seen to date!

    How exactly is this confirmation?

    Well, it's not really a confirmation. It's an indication. However, there has been quite a few of these subtle hints (no, I'm not going to dig up the sources), so I guess people have just assumed that there'll be a class called something mesmer-ish. And Queen Jennah of the humans is a mesmer. Source: The second novel, "Edge of Destiny"

    all 7 of the images of this style are confirmed professions(no such image was shown for the engineer AFAIK). the class was also seen briefly in the races of tyria trailer(before the naysayers chime in remeber that female charr in the same video turned out to be a thief after all).

    You thought swg fans nerd raged at the NGE, this would make that look like a hissy fit.image

    The following statement is false
    The previous statement is true

    What hyping? They haven't "hyped" the class. "Hype" reqiures, in the very least, a confirmation of the profession's existence in the game. And there is nothing vicious about introducing a class other than the Mesmer. The Mesmer is no more of an "iconic" or unique profession than any others in the original Guild Wars. Sure, there's a huge fan base out there who view it as the bestest and most signature profession out there, but that is not itself a sufficient reason for its inclusion.

    I'd say the indication is entirely on the part of the interviewer. The response from Jon does not amount to an affirmation of the interviewer's implication. As a matter of fact, reading it carefully, you could construe his response as a denial of the inclusion of the Mesmer ("change your MIND").

    Never do things halfway! Full blown, riot-in-the-streets insanity is really your moral obligation.

    IF there's no mesmer I am not playing the game just to make a point. You don't fuck with your one and ONLY unique class that is iconic to the Guild Wars series. Can't imagine GvG without mesmers really would be soooo boring.

    Are you kidding me? Which one was unique to Guild Wars then? Elementalist? Nope. Necro? Nope. Ranger? Nope. Monk? Naaah. Warrior? Rofl.


     


    Mesmer is the most unique class in Guild Wars 1. Not sure about Dervish and Paragon though :) They are also quite unique but we are not getting any of the Cantha and Elona professions for obvious lore reasons.

    I'd gladly give up the mesmer for a Monk!!!!

  • KillHurtKillHurt Member Posts: 347

    It was said and confirmed that one of the last two classes would be named the same as a previous class in Guild Wars. So, all signs point to mesmer, especially after the end of that interview. Not to mention all the mesmer name dropping in the books.

    How do yo uknow that his is not a ritualist that might look like a Mesmer ? The paper fan that she is holding did not come into play until the Factions campaign was released, not to mention she does like kinda Canthan-ish don't ya think ? :)
