Guild Wars 2 Guide to Choosing a Profession

 

The holy trinity is gone! Every profession has the ability to deal damage, control enemies and support her allies. So to enjoy a profession for a long time, it's best to choose to a profession based on the play style. This slightly humorous guide will hopefully help you choose a profession based on your personality and preferred play style.

Did you say yes to most questions? Congratulations! You found a profession that fits your personality and play style!

Elementalists are multi-faceted spellcasters that channel elemental forces, making fire, air, earth, and water do their bidding.

    One thing to add. The warrior is not a pure Melee class. Its just the DPS class among the revealed classes. Think of it as AoE ranged DPS as well. ;) Other than that nice guide.

    Very nicely done my good man (or woman, sorry, Its hard to know on the internets). Sadly none of the above apply to me, but I can hope to get lucky with the remaining unrevealed professions!

    Nice work I'll probably lean towards the ranger from the already released professions.
