ArenaNet reveals the first class for Guild Wars 2, the magic-hurling Elementalist, complete with new screens and extremely impressive video of the class in action.

The Elementalist harnesses the forces of nature to do her bidding. By attuning herself to one of the four elements - fire, water, air, and earth - the Elementalist changes her role from direct damage to crowd control to area-of-effect caster to defense, all at a moment's notice. She's every caster, rolled up into one, and she's damn impressive to boot.

If the game turns out half as impressive as these videos, I might be in trouble.

Check out a couple of the videos and screenshots ArenaNet has released below, and be sure to hit up the link at the bottom for more.
