Guild Wars 2
Guild Wars 2 - Exklusives Interview mit Guild Wars 2 Lead Designer
OnlineWelten: Is the guardian able to use defensive Spirit weapons in order to protect an ally? Can he, for example, conjure a defensive Shield which will cover a certain ally from incoming damage?
Jon: There are no ally targeted skills in Guild Wars 2. The spirit weapons are summoned for the guardian themselves; however they can still be used to protect allies by activating their abilities against enemies targeting those allies.
OnlineWelten: Is it possible to have multiple spirit weapons activated simultaneously?
Jon: Yes, you can have up to three activated if you slot three spirit weapon utilities.
OnlineWelten:I get the example of the "Line of Warding.” But are there other aspects in which wards do vary except the geometrical shape? Can they also cover areas where enemies can get stuck in if they were in them when the wards got summoned? If possible, give a few more examples of wards :)
Jon: Line and ring are the two varieties of wards. Lines can be used to direct the flow of traffic and the circle can surround and ally to keep enemies away or trap an enemy in allied, or your own area of effect attacks.
OnlineWelten:Do the passive abilities also have influence on my spells?
Jon: No. Virtues do not affect spells.
