Not surprising I think most of us kind of hinted towards this.

Well this was a nice surprise.

Call me spoiled, but now I really want to see some epic skill videos and get a wicked new wallpaper :D

That's pretty much what I'm thinking. Profession name? Cool. Profession mechanics? That's like giving us a chemistry set. Information, flashy effects, and fascinating noises? Yep. Exactly like a chemistry set...With nearly endless ingredients. :D

Good bye Blue Mace Lady... :(
Wouldn't Blue Mace Lady be a Guardian?

Maybe Guardian don't have to have shields?  Warriors can wield bows and be effective, maybe Guardians can wield maces and be just as effective in their class?

DON'T SAY THAT! When the game is released, just keep referring to them as BMLs! We'll make it a well-known term! harrharr!

Alright then! I'm up for it ;DD I just hope that there are enough people that will do that then!

Also.. how can we shorten "Guardian" anyways? lf GRD? BML sounds so much cooler hehe!

@Overlord. i was talking about the name ;)

I wish I could just assume you're not being serious, but I've met too many idiots on the internet. Please tell me you're joking.

I can't help but feel a little underwhelmed by this. Yea, its exciting that we have the name and archetype, but... there just isn't any more information. Nothing about it's abilities, lore, mechanics, ect. A caption in a 'what we're excited for this year' article. No pomp or circumstance, just doesn't feel right to me. :(

Yo Ho Ho and a bottle of rum

he ment that the profession we called BML before release now has an official name, rather than its awesome speculation-name xD

Doubt it.
BML works anyway as the profession name.

Glad you’re excited. :-) We’re excited as well. No need to kill your F5 keys over the weekend. We will have a full reveal of the guardian, along with all the goodies (pics, videos), next Thursday. :-)

Ah, I see.  And thus players will be confused when their Guardians get called BMLs. Sorry the joke had to be explained, kind of slow right now, it is Friday evening.  This is a bit much to cope with.

Hooray!   Official official response!  Thanks Regina!

And a specific date too!   Awesome!
