We recently learned about the Mesmer Chronomancer coming to Heart of Thorns, now take a peek at the Dragonhunter.

The Dragonhunter is the Guardian's Elite Specialization for Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns. It’s a ferocious big-game hunter that specializes in ranged combat and back-line support. We’ve incorporated a more physical aspect into the guardian, and its powers in light-wielding have deepened to the point that they can better physically manifest objects into the world and send them flying as swift as an arrow.

Best case scenario: "Heart of Thorns" is the title of an upcoming Guild Wars 2 expansion to be announced next week at PAX South.

Worst case scenario: "Heart of Thorns" is the name of the next season of the living world content for Guild Wars 2.

Either way, something is coming.  Guild Wars 2's publisher, NCSOFT, has registered a new trademark for the name "Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns" with the accompanying logo above.  ArenaNet has a panel scheduled at PAX South that promises a sneak peek at what's next for the game.  If you're a fan, it's time to board the hype train.
