thirdededed...but I'd settle for news on the Mesmer.

I'm liking the look of the underwater combat. That's different.

The group was also unable to get any information on the elusive eighth profession, though it wasn’t for lack of trying. Any mention of the mesmer was likewise met with an unbreakable poker face until the subject was changed, so unfortunately, I can neither confirm nor deny the existence of mesmers.

I have a feeling that the next profession will be revealed at Gamescom August 17-21. Devs already stated in one of the interviews that we will see some surprises at Gamescom, but not much info until then.

I also heard that this weekend thing also gave some news about Winds of Change. I'm hoping that they're going to make the Paper Fan an item that can be crafted at it's end stage.

I have noticed that as time goes by more and more articles from online mags are showing up. Quite a few I have never heard of before. So far they have been mostly positive about what they are seeing and playing.

The latest news about WoC is that the lead Dev on the Live Team said that it should be ready to go live once he goes on vacation for his honeymoon. And its the 9th when he gets married.

Soo Winds of Change is gonna be soon. Comes in 3 parts with the first part involving 42 quests and some new order called Ministry of Purity. And this new chapter in Guild Wars Beyond will set the stage for why Cantha eventually cut all ties to Tyria in GW2.
