    There is a new tool out there, which creates a nice character preview banner. Its on the same site that also features the skill bar tool.

    Enjoy

    Although the forum isn't that populated and there is no hot discussion going on here, I am planning to split this preview thread into several threads in the next few days.

    >The GW 2 Elementalist & Skills (which will include the cross profession combos)
    >The GW 2 Elementlaist & Traits (which will be split off once there are some new news on traits)
    >The GW 2 Elementalist overview & attunements (which is all that is left of the thread once the skills & traits are gone; That one will probably be merged with the "GW1/GW2 difference thread" because of overlapping topics.

    Comments or perhaps better ideas I did not mention here?

    PS: I have added a draft version of a cross profession combo table to my GW2wiki sandbox, which I can't transfer here, because of the inability of the forums to display HTML or other kind of wiki coding.

    I have added the G*Star convention Elemetalist videos to the media thread and want to point out the latest blog post:

    http://www.arena.net/blog/eric-flann...-2-g-star-demo

    There they talk about skill acquisition and unlock with skill points. There is also news about a new UI, but there are no Ele specific pictures too show you.

    We’ll talk about our new trait system in an upcoming blog post
    I am looking forward to hearing something about traits....

    Gorani

    PS: I left the original skill & trait posts at the beginning of this thread, because some things might not make sense if I had just removed them. Of course only the new topic threads will be updated in th e future.

    I am currently working on transferring the Condition & Boon "articles" to my GW2wiki Userpage. Within the wiki I can link skills a lot easier than here on the Forums, so if you want to have direct links to skills, check out my wiki presence. Right now everything is in the sandbox part called "Exploration". But it will be transferred to the Alternative Elementalist sub-page, when it is done and polished.

    PS: You can find the two tables now at the "Elementalist Secrets" section

    Ok, fair point. It just seems a bit misleading since one's first reaction is to compare what's different in an attunement change and that is the skills.

    Or maybe I'm over thinking?

    Is this thread only for preview information on the elementalist, or is it okay to general discuss it as well?

    Mist Form is an utility skill that grants 6 seconds of God Mode. Water Blast launches a water projectile that explodes on enemy contact dealing damage to enemies and healing allies.

    And why do you have Dragon Tooth and Fire Prison in the Fire attunement preview? They are not staff skills.
    The character image is there to illustrate how the armour & everything else in that hero tab looks. The two pictures that show the skill bar illustrate how the skill bar changes when you change attunements.
    The skill icons do not reflect the skill bars above them. They show different skills anyway. They should show how skill icons for the Ele look, e.g. Fire icons are dominated by orange and red, Water icons are blue and white. This is in contrast to GW 1 icons, which all had a hue of red for the Elementalist.

    All skills are listed as they appear on the official wiki right now - and Dragon's Tooth & Flame Prison are listed as off-hand dagger dagger skills, here and on the wiki.

    I've updated the picture and removed the skill icons, as they are available on the list now anyway.

    The mod team is currently discussing if or if not to move profession related threads from the GW2GDF to the newly created profession forum. Right now, I'd say use the GDF for speculation until you see the threads moved here.
    I want to keep this thread for hard facts and first hand info from wiki, ArenaNet blog & PAX right now and keep "personal feelings" & likes + dislikes out.

    What I would like you all to post are links to newly surfaced skill icons or skill descriptions, that are still missing from the list.
    People at Gamescom seem to have focused much more on the Ranger and Necro than on the Ele, e.g. we hardy know any traits yet.

    Is it just me, or does it seem odd that dagger skills are medium range and scepter skills are short range? Seem to me it should be the other way around...
