    This is basically to compile what we know and have seen regarding classes, what they do, and which races can use them.

    Warriors
    Weapons: Swords and Grenade Launchers, as well as Chainsaws and Arm Cannons mentioned by the Content Designer.
    Races: Granok and <Redactoids> have been seen as Warriors so far.
    Skills: Wide AoE spinning slash, tractor beam-like crowd control, a ranged earth glaive attack.

    Espers
    Weapons: Psyblade and perhaps a Staff (as seen in a screenshot)
    Races: Humans and Aurin so far.
    Skills: Bird-like projectile, spinning dance while projecting wheels, giant ground-pounding fist, revving wheel strike.

    Spellslingers
    Weapons: Dual Pistols
    Races: Humans so far.
    Skills: Bullet barrage, teleportation shot, and various glyph shots

    Stalkers
    Weapons: Wrist Blades (apparently a claw-like form since they had same animations)
    Races: Humans and <Redactohorns>
    Skills: Rapid strikes, stealth, and bomb toss

    An <Undacted> and a <Redacubus> have yet to be seen in combat.

    We've also seen a Granok in the Meet the Exiles video spray enemies down with a rifle. Could possibly be ANOTHER Warrior weapon.
    JarNod, Black Wolf, Kataryna and 2 others like this.

    I believe the "rings" are called Psyblades. Granted, this thing lists Intelligence as a stat, which isn't a thing anymore, so they could have changed the weapon's name.

    Hmm, idk how I feel about items modifying abilities. While it could make for some very interesting builds it could also make itemizing rather difficult. Idk. I'm in the air.

    Yeah, it seems like an odd choice - but this photo was taken during Gamescom '11, and, as you already know, Intelligence is no longer a stat (I'm guessing it was replaced by Magic and/or Wisdom), so that could very well mean they've removed equip effects such as that one, too.

    I'm new to the forum, but have been following the game for a while now, and for some reason this topic has quadrupled my excitement for the game....xD

    Is the Stalker name official?

    I'd like to see Warriors use laser rifles and all classes available to every race.

    It appears it might be, at least according to Ten Ton Hammer's episode schedule for their WildStar articles. Look at the description for the last one!

    Added Arm Cannons to Warriors as mentioned by Mike Donatelli. Ironically, the robot splash art behind him in the video also shows an Arm Cannon!

    How'd I miss it? Find out next!

    We've also seen a Granok in the Meet the Exiles video spray enemies down with a rifle. Seeing as how it didn't appear Spellslingy, I believe it debunks the rifle for Spellslinger use. Could possibly be ANOTHER Warrior weapon. That would make FIVE weapons for the Warrior class! Carbine wasn't lying when they say each class will have multiple mechanics and playstyles.

    So just imagine what other weapons the other classes will have!

    Well...telekinesis is my favourite "magic" branch and Glaives (in this case the psyblade) are my favourite weapon...it's like they took my dream class and made it real! *squee*

    Ohmygod, same here!! :geek: I cannot wait to try out an Esper. (I think if I do get invited to closed Beta though, I will save that class until launch.)

    Stalkers too seem really fun to me.

    Thank you for posting all this info!

    Anything with rifles/nade launchers is win my books, maybe even a rifle with an under slung launcher (crosses fingers). The whole thing mounted to a robot arm? pure awesomesauce.

    So now does that mean as a stalker i can only use wrist blades? and warriors can only use swords? and so on for the other classes, because if thats so i dont think im so excited over that. Some of the most exciting things in a mmo is getting new weapons. Yes the items may look different but the item and overall design will still be a claw for a stalker. Also it may be hard upgrading your weapons since you are restricted to one weapon type. If it means that that item type will be their top items at a teir set then im fine with it, because i can still use other items as a lvl. Also do you guys think their will be shields?
