for few days, but the emotion still filled with players in the community. Foreign media interviews with the game design------ Eric Flannum recently, talking about the profession's background and design specfications.
Ask: Mesmer is the symbol of Guild Wars career and is almost the unique. Do you meet more difficulties in the process of development? After all the players are very familiar with this occupation.
Answer: I think the development of mesmer is actually more difficult than other occupations. For example, when we make warrior skill or warrior profession, we will refer to other medias's warrior images,sunch as games, films, documents, legends and so on. Players also have seen all sorts of medias, so they have extensive expectations and definitions for warriors.
However, mesmer is a apecial profession we made for Guild War. The core is------mesmer is a magic duelist relied on trick and plot. The place for reference is apparently few when we make such profession. It means we need to take more time to get the direction. Of course, if the direction is right, the ultimate reward is large.
Ask: Which parts(skill, weapon, apperance and others) will inherit it down in the start of the design?Read more...
