There are currently four known professions in Guild Wars 2 and four more unannounced. Which four do we know about? What are their special abilities? We here at Ten Ton Hammer have put together an an overview that answers these questions and more as we put together everything we know about professions in GW2.
Each profession has one unique game mechanic that separates them from the other professions. For example, the Warrior has adrenaline. Various actions grant the Warrior more adrenaline which passively boosts their attack power or they can spend it all on one big burst skill. These mechanics are designed to make each profession different and guarantee a unique playstyle for each one.
