The Elementalist is a powerhouse in the original Guild Wars and will be returning in Guild Wars 2 with much of the same function. How much of this profession is the same and how much is new? Find out at we explore the Elementalist profession here at Ten Ton Hammer.
Unlike the Warrior, the Elementalist will not be able to change weapons in combat. That will not prevent them from being able to switch skills, however. The first five skills on the Elementalist’s skillbar are determined by the weapon equipped along with which element the Elementalist is attuned to. Each elemental attunement changes the class drastically by providing bonuses based on the element along with skills from that element.
