So just created a new Elite Specialization for when we head back over to the Canthan region. This build definitely took me roughly 2 days to think about and work on but I hope you guys like it.This is meant to be a fun idea from pure imagination but hey, if it gets implemented in the game somehow then that will be a bonus!
Enter Mu Kaye-Ling or Mu for short. Mu is an androgynous character. He is friendly, seductive, sassy, sweet, humble and yet a bit feral. Mu grew up as a canthan street rat in Kaineng City. Though his faith and prayers to the Goddess Lyssa were strong,
his latent mesmer gifts remained dormant. It was until he ventured off just to the docks where he noticed the new Empress had ordered some Tengu and few
canthan peasants out of the city forever. It was at that moment that a tengu by the name of Valken Ravenwing commented on his beauty and told him to become
something more so he wouldn’t be flushed out of the city like the rest them. It struck a cord in him and it was then that Mu vowed to better himself as a person
and make enough coin to open up his own lounge – an escape if you will, somewhere far south of the city away from the Empress’ rule. A place for everyone of
any race to call home.
As the years went by, Mu’ delved into thievery by means of using his female-like features to manipulate noble men and guards for their coins. The thrill and
adrenaline is what kept him going, but it was then that people started to talk, to catch on and that was when he became wanted. Then just as some royal guards found his
hiding spot, his powers manifested out of fear and was then able to charm those with his magic, making them see what they wanted to.
He then combined the thievery he had done trying to survive the streets of the city, his looks and his new found power to charm his way to the top. He later then was able
to open his sanctuary calling it the House of Kaye-Ling (or Garden of Mu, whichever sounds better), as he dreamed of. With his new found guardian Valken Ravenwing,
he almost seemed untouchable. It was until that one day, a mysterious hero from overseas sought his technique.
And that is why I decided to call this new Elite Specialization: the Charmer. A person with an atrractive and engaging personality, typically one
who uses this to impress or manipulate others.
The Charmer elite focuses on damage, boons and interrupting your foes. Bringing back a bit of interrupting and fast casting from the original game, with a dash of tricks
from the thief class. This specialization gives you access to daggers, being able to wield both in the main hand and off hand. Mesmers gain access to the new F5 skill Manifest Whip, which allows you to channel chaotic energy into your main hand dagger, manifesting it into an illusionary whip. Giving you range and just a sense of domination to whip your foes hard enough to make them kneel, just as Mu likes’em.
