I'm sure that Arenanet said that they were going to reveal a profession before Gamescon! Why haven't they! I'm getting more and more disappointed with them! First the new gameplay video that didn't blow me away, was very confusing, had loads of problems and was quite contradicting to what they previously had said!

MY question to you:
WTF?

Necromancer my friend, necromancer. Besides, the official Gamescon videos haven't been released yet, I think the live stream starts tomorrow.

Shit anet didn't do something they said they would according to a proposed schedule that was suggested by a PR member.

THE END IS NIGH.

Pretty confident you'll see plenty about necro's the next few days. When, you know, gamescom's open to the public.

There's footage of the customization menu and it shows 4 professions Warrior Elementalist Ranger and Necro. I'm guessing necro is the big surprise? It also shows the questionnaire, I'm interested in how having a dead sister or no knowledge of your parents plays into the storyline

If you've watched the videos, seen the pictures of the venue you'd know they've been working very hard. We will get tons of info about the necromancer, which has been confirmed as the next class reveal, sometime down the road.

Yeah I don't know what gameplay video you're talking about, because none of them are official. And they released the necromancer officially, they just don't have info on the site.

Necromancer has been revealed in the demo. Technically before Gamescom opens for us. Sneaky tricksy Anet ;)

Only a matter of time before we get skill videos and whatnot

This way pulls a lot more views to other sites, and is building hype for their own reveal.

Now that we've had a taste, we need to know more. I doubt anyone here who's watched the videos is thinking "oh, that's all I wanted to know about the necro". It's more like "wtf I need the class reveal on the main site so I can see all the coolness in one nice summarized package"

Yeah I know that they've confirmed necro but Gamescon has started! People are playing the Demo! They promised BEFORE Gamescon! It has already started! I expected it to be on the website by no! This is rediculous! THEY LIED!

The dead sister would make an awesome choice for the necro.... Maybe you were trying to bring her back to life so you started doing some black magic voodoo and accidently turned her into a minion

Yes there was, and I assumed like everyone else that it'd be like the previous annoucements with the webpage and the videos.

Public acess for GamesCom starts tomorrow though, so if there really is gonna be a 'propper' annoucement it'll be today. As in, in a few hours or overnight at worst.

This. Again. Firstly, grow up. Secondly, caps lock is not cruise control for cool, unless you're me. Thirdly, Gamescom has not opened to the public yet and announcements have usually been made on Wednesday nights, the night is still young. Be patient and don't bang your spoon on your highchair or you'll be sent to bed.

A profession reveal was never promised, it has simply been assumed based on this quote from Jeff Grubb.

Quote

There are eight planned. We've revealed three of them: the warrior, the elementalist, and the ranger, and there is furious speculation on what the other five are. We are currently in the process of revealing those on the website, and there should be one more revealed before we go live at GamesCom and PAX. Before Cologne, before PAX, we'll know a fourth.

And we've known that the Necromancer would be in to some degree for quite awhile now. It's been confirmed before GamesCom opened to the public. As for a reveal on the site, he simply said that there 'should' be one, not that there 'would.'
