According to this site, warriors and mesmers have the longest ranged attacks, but this doesn't take into account traits which can increase range.

If traits are considered, which profession has the longest maximum range on an attack?

    Mesmer range is wrong. The range is 1200, and the range of the phantasm it summons is 1700 (which is irrelevant in this case, since you need to be in range to summon it in the first place) Jan 6, 2013 at 17:06

The Ranger does.

A few longbow attacks are already 1200 range, and the Eagle Eye trait expands that by 25%, to 1500 even.

  • Yeah, if the GW2 wiki page on Range is correct, then the Ranger's is currently the longest.

    Warrior Kill Shot also has a range of 1500. Jan 6, 2013 at 21:43

The Engineer can extend grenade range to 1500 also. And since they are all AOE, are most useful in WVW.
