GuildWars2 - A Memorable Assassin

予想されていた通り、Revenantの4つ目のLegendはShiro Tagachiでした。Shiroは前作Guild Wrasに登場したAssassin(Guild Wars時代にあったプロフェッション)で、Canthaという極東アジアをモチーフにした地方が舞台のFactionsという拡張から登場する悪役です。

There is one last piece of the puzzle for the revenant in the expansion—the elite specialization for the revenant hasn’t been announced yetとあるので、まだElite Specialization要素が残っているようです。



Rift Slash
“Slash foes, creating a rift on them that explodes for additional damage after a short delay.”
The Rift Slash attack will slash at foes in front of your character. Any foe that is struck will have an unstable mist rift sliced into them. After a short delay, this rift will explode, damaging nearby foes. This skill is the third part of the autoattack chain and works great in large groups of foes.


Precision Strike
“Strike nearby foes with precision, sending out blades that damage and chill them.”
Quick attacks are a theme you’ll see throughout this weapon set. This skill will throw blades at nearby enemies, damaging and chilling them. It’s a great way to stay on your target, help catch targets, or just cause some extra damage.


Unrelenting Assault
“Unleash a fierce attack on nearby foes, shadowstepping to foes in the vicinity and delivering strikes. Gain might each time you strike a foe.”

Enchanted Daggers
“Enchanted daggers will strike your target as you attack, siphoning life from the damaged foe.”
We wanted the heal skill for this stance to have an offensive feeling to it to match the aggressive nature of the playstyle. You’ll summon jade daggers that float above your character. Once they’re summoned, they’ll attack any enemy you strike, siphoning life from that foe.

Jade daggerを召喚します。攻撃時、そのDaggerはダメージを与え、ダメージを与えた敵からライフスティールします。攻撃的なLegendなので、ヒーリングスキルもその趣旨に沿ったものにしたい意図があるようです。

Phase Traversal
“Step through the Mists to your target, and make your next few attacks unblockable.”
As one of the revenant’s core themes is using the Mists, we figured we should incorporate it into one of the mobility skills that you will gain access to with this stance. Traveling through the Mists sounds cool, right? Your character will step through the Mists from their current location to their foe. They will also gain stacks of an unblockable effect, allowing you to combo into your other skills to bypass heavy defenses.


Jade Winds
“Call upon the Jade Wind to turn nearby enemies into jade, stunning them for a short duration.”
In the Factions® campaign for the original Guild Wars, Shiro released the Jade Wind. This skill is something like that. OK, maybe on a smaller scale—affecting that big of an area might be a bit too strong. You’ll build up power until you release Jade Wind, turning nearby foes to jade for a short duration. We even have a trait that triggers this skill when the player is downed so you can release the Jade Wind when defeated, just like Shiro did.
