Due to the fact that "someone jumped the gun" on embargoed information, ArenaNet has confirmed that the eighth and final profession for Guild Wars 2 will be the Mesmer.
The masters of illusion and control have been a staple in the Guild Wars series since the game was first released, which was eventually referred to as the "Prophecies" campaign.
ArenaNet's official Twitter account confirmed the news earlier today, saying "Yes, Mesmer is the final profession. Seems like someone jumped the gun." The profession's full reveal is still slated for Wednesday, when the information was originally planned to be released.
According to Massively, the information leaked when GameReactor Denmark jumped the embargo and posted a video featuring the Mesmer in Guild Wars 2 early. The video has since been removed.
The selection isn't as surprising as it was expected. As a Guild Wars fan, I had began fashioning my castle storming weapons on the off chance ArenaNet announced another profession was the game's last launch batch. We'll have the full reveal for the profession on Wednesday.
