I m looking forward to the seems like ability to taunt
Looking forward to play a Rev as an alt toon, but I still can't decide on a race to play (charr, human, norn, or sylvari.) What race will make a good Rev?
Quaggan can't do it alone...
See you all in game
I’m looking forward to the improved mobility+heavy armor class. I may stop using my thief for this class. I like to move fast, but being able to take more damage at the same time is a huge plus. This is like OP for me.
The ability to channel powers from ancient legends as a Revenant got my attention right away. It will make for a very interesting play style in combination with the other weapon skills. Also allowing the Revenant to have 2 legends equiped at any given time (one active/one inactive) adds more variety if you want to make a more hybrid build.
Really good stuff.
The Revenant is a massive love letter to Guild Wars 1 players. Not only is it based upon invoking legendary Guild Wars 1 characters, but it draws much of its mechanics from the game as well.
The combination of energy management and upkeep skills is going to give this class a level of depth not seen in other classes. It won't be about spamming damage rotations off cooldown, but rather wisely toggling your upkeep skills while using your other legend skills for their intended situations.
Speaking of legend skills, there is a heavy distinction between the legend skills of the Revenant and the healing, utility, and elite skills of other classes. First and foremost, there is an all-or-nothing draw to slotting them. Whereas other classes enjoy a high degree of slot customization, the Revenant must take the whole package for each of his two legends. In exchange for this, however, his healing, utility, and elite skills are designed as a complete package and benefit from excellent synergy with one another and with the profession's weapon sets. Whereas the slot skills of other professions tend to feel "tacked-on," the Revenant's are a central part of the class - and, in fact, their bread and butter.
What will this mean for their playstyle? The Revenant will naturally be using utilities and elites at a much higher rate than any other profession, but will have to do so wisely in order to maximize their effectiveness. This should give them a highly adaptable, aggressive style of play, characterized by much more varied rotations than any other class. No longer is the Elite merely a "super button." It's a defined part of the Revenant's build. Heals aren't just heals - they are tailored to the role that the Revenant's legend is meant to represent. Utilities aren't just throwaway support mechanics with no particular synergy - they are designed to form a cohesive style with one another.
Simply put, the Revenant is what Guild Wars 2 classes should have always been. From what I've seen thus far, it is a thing of beauty, and I can't wait to get my hands on it.
The fact that it's a totally new gameplay mechanic. The way you will have to shift between the souls/stances sounds interesting.

Legendary Dwarf Stance sounds awesome! I played a Dwarf Ironbreaker in WAR. The taunt mechanics were nice in PVP. Really made for some interesting battles.
I'm excited for Revenant!
Also happy that the hammer and mace don't have an awful slow 3rd chain attack.
This expansion looks promising for GW 2. It has dark tones, so far revealed, & this new Revenant class is enticing by description.
