Other than that, I'll have to wait and see what the specializations for ranger and engi will be. Other than guardian I don't know enough about the other classes yet to know how to use the specializations
The Inner Bars give The Circle its strength. The Circle gives The Inner Bars their purpose.

Interesting how it is, that I haven't been able to participate in a BWE and thus haven't actually played Revenant yet, I still feel like I will shift my main to Rev (sorry Molly, no hard feelings). Not because it's gonna be the shiny new thing, but because it's playstyle, traits, just everything to it genuinely looks super interesting to me.
~Revenant Anybut, playing around at least with a build editor gave me some fun ideas. Like this weird-ass Sword/Axe+Staff, Zealots, Shiro/Ventari setup. Now I have heard grumblings that Centaur stance feels a little undertuned and I have seen in person that Herald and Dragon stance are kinda totally broken AF, but if there are grumblings, then hopefully Anet is listening will tune it up all nice, but I won't hold my breath. On the topic of Herald however, I did have an interesting thought. Almost every Herald I saw during the past BWE was running sword with shield and Shiro/Glint. So it got me thinking to what a condi Herald would be like. So I made a pretty rough idea out of what I would like this thing to be. Here is my also goofy Mace+Shield/Hammer condi Herald. I'm open to suggestion from anyone who has played Revenant to give me some ideas to make this build more cohesive, as it's something I'd really like to try.
~Necromancer Though just because I will be maining Rev, doesn't mean I'll be completely abandoning Necro. I still have tons of love for our favorite redhead step-child and I feel I'll have a ton of fun with Reaper. So my two builds with Reaper are Power and Condition for PvE and WuvWuv respectively. In regards to the condi Reaper, I really hope they do something to Chilling Darkness before HoT, 'cause this thing was nerfed into the grounds for what is, in my opinion, no good reason. Also, before anybody asks why I have a GS on a condi Reaper, I designed this build with the idea to use scepter/dagger for roaming and fights against single targets. The greatsword is brought out when a large group appears and, since the armor is Dire, it's designed to tank and wade through everything and hopefully outlast people until they get bored and go away. And for vanilla Necro, unless there are some serious changes, I'll be running what I usually run for Power and Condi.
Bear, your condi Rev build is identical to my condi Rev build with a few exceptions. I ran rabid accessories and Traveler's runes. Everything else is the same.
I will tell you that in PvE, it just didn't compare with my crit build. PvP though it's insane. WvW I highly preferred my crit build. It's a lot of fun, but it's SO confusing (for me) to keep the Demon stuff up and switch to Herald effectively.
I'd love to mess around and talk to you about it once you get a chance to play it. I hope they leave condi alone though. It's very strong in PvP, maybe too strong.
