    Are we suggesting that your path has a 'level' raised by pathike activities, or that when the character is level 10, you the player can have the title 'The Navigator' ?

    I am assuming the latter, but I prefer the sound of the former!!

    The former. Path was a separate levelling/reward system (own XP/levels).

    After seeing this, I'm really excited to get a lot more on the path system, not to mention the two final paths we don't know anything about.

    I usually like to stay from altism, but I'm worried that I'll need to have 3 just so I can really get in depth to all of the different paths. A dable in each might just not be enough!

    I was quite taken aback when I found out about this gem of WS leveling. I mean MMO's generally offer rewards for alternate paths in terms of loot or small amounts of XP, but to actually make 4 different and equally viable ways of leveling up is truly impressive.

    This is pretty amazing seems like a good start I can't wait to see what the settler and scientist get and how they've changed the system in the 4 months since this build went live.

    Zomg, thank you, Zap! :laugh:

    Are you going to upload the source images/videos too when you do your big update? That would be sweet. ^___^

    These sound so awesome! I can't remember off the top of my head where I heard it, but I remember one of the devs talking about how they didn't want to make Path abilities as 'good' as your class abilities. That way, when you get to endgame and do PvP or something, you're not like: "Oh, I should have been THIS path instead" (like how Fear Ward used to make Dwarves the only race choice for Priests in WoW).

    Explorers get 'TREASURE PILE'. :inlove: I hope that other paths get that too, because regardless of path, I certainly want piles of treasure in my house. :p

    'Explorer's Speed' sounds like, well, a speed-boosting skill, which would make the Explorer a tempting path choice if you just want to zip around the map quickly. It also may have PvP implications if you can outrun certain enemies, or more easily get behind enemy lines. @_@

    'Founder' is a pretty badass title to have, though I woulda thought that'd be a more appropriate name for a Settler. :p

    I agree, it definitely sounds more Settler appropriate to me.
