Whoa. I was thinking my main was going to be a norn guardian, but this looks amazing.

And with the Engineer as #7, we know all the professions. #8 will be The Mesmer.

This is most unusual. And intriguing. :chin:

Who's left, then? A profession we know or a new one, do we think?

The last profession will be something called a Mesmer, I believe. But I think it will be a wacky Mesmer, only a little like the GW1 Mesmer. For example, it's known that there are no interrupts in GW2. However, there are lots of crazy conditions, like Knockdown, Fear, Slow ...

I'm going to predict a Mesmer profession that uses stealth, illusion, charms, conjuring/summoning of some sort. Direct damage will be done at least partly by some kind of psionic attacks. I predict a crazy kind of Chaos Storm AoE skill. That kind of thing.

Oh, and imagine the madcap hijinx when your party's Mesmer conjures an illusionary weapon that you can pick up, changing your skill bar to include all kinds of weirdness. Add in skill stealing like the Thief's. I'll bet ANet has some superkewl fun stuff in store for the new Mesmer.

I have no inside information. I just think ANet would be insane to give up on their most unique character class. I believe it will have the zaniest gameplay of all the professions, and this explains why they're working on it the longest before announcing it.
