How exactly does weapon swapping work in GW2? It appears from videos I have watched that you get a secondary weapon you can switch to as most professions such as Warrior for example where as the Elementalist does not have a secondary weapon set to switch to and instead they switch attunements. With this being my current understanding of the weapon system in GW2 my question is this:
Can you swap to additional weapons in combat? Lets say you wanted to switch from dagger to staff as Elementalist during a fight, is that something that could be accomplished?
Engineer and elementalist both only have 1 weapon set, however you are right elementalist instead of having a second weapon set have 4 attunements fire, earth, water, and air which all give different ability's, engineer have there kits flamethrower, bomb etc.
You cant swap weapons from your inventory in combat, but you can swap them outside of combat including as of now while the match is being played.
