Rounding out the eight professions in Guild Wars 2 is the Mesmer, which was revealed by ArenaNet today. This class type uses illusory magic, like clones and phantasms, to confuse and take down enemies. For years in gaming we've been fighting foes with such abilities, so it's nice to take on the role for once.
The development team has also taken to Reddit for an AMA (Ask Me Anything), divulging that the game's closed beta will commence on Friday -- though it sounds very much like a limited affair. Even still, it's progress! Give the thread a read if you intend to keep up with Guild Wars 2, which you should.
