Ah yes the engineer. Master of mechanical mayhem and divider of communities and it certainly got a few pulses racing in the replies to our brawl. AvatarArcher is definitely a “barefist fighter” based off his comment calling out the hypocrisy of those who can accept minions sprouting from stone without so much of a blink, and yet can’t accept the vision of the engineer. SoyOil also gets a mention for bringing some thoughts about cross profession combinations for the engineer.
A quick more serious point before we get onto this week’s question. Its great that people are inspired to write a large amount of content off the back of these topics, but they’re also quite daunting to those whose arguments aren’t so verbose and is stopping them from putting forward their arguments. If your response ends up being significantly more than 250 words feel free to post it on your blog and link the post in your comment. I’ll read it all the same and add portions of it to the audio digest. If you don’t have a blog of your own, email us the text (put a subject of “The Bar Brawl” please) and we’ll post it up. Or record yourself giving us your response and email that to us. Even better though, just provide a little less detail. Its a bit hard to read an essay when you have a face full of ale. You can say quite a lot in 250 words – like these last 2 paragraphs. Moving on…
With the reveal of the engineer over and done, we turn our attention to the 8th and final profession. All hints point to this being the mesmer, but with hexes* and interrupts absent from Guild Wars 2 chances are they’ll behave rather differently than those we see today in Guild Wars. We’d like you to share your view of the future mesmer with us. Make it as realistic or not as you like. What do you think their unique mechanic will be?

*(although hexes can be replaced by additional conditions)
