ArenaNet is yet to announce the return of the Mesmer and Assassin professions in the sequel to Guild Wars, but NCSoft staff have dropped hints that fans of either will find something to please them.

Lead designer Eric Flannum told Eurogamer there are three more reveals on the way – one light armour type, and two medium.

“That sort of sneaky anti-hero sort of role – we don’t have something that fits that archetype, we haven’t revealed one,” he said.

“So yeah, we think people who enjoy that play-style will find a profession they like as well.”

“What we’ve said at some point is people who enjoy that [Mesmer] play-style will be happy,” added NCSoft’s Jon Peters, “But no more than that.”
