    Hey all,

    Thought I'd start this thread for those who are not watching WildStar footage like a hawk and may be unaware of other teaser classes other than the Spellslinger, Warrior and Esper. Think you've spotted something new? Post a screenshot and some details!

    Here's what we have so far...

    Unnamed Stealth Class
    We have one "confirmed" unannounced class. A stealth class, appearing in the Friends and Family Trailer...

    ... no visible weapons, able to activate objects remaining in stealth (hopefully there's no "glowie missions" like in City of Heroes if the mechanic stays like that).

    (Potential) Unknown Rifle Class
    A (potential) second unannounced class made an appearance in the housing trailer....

    rifle.PNG

    ... with a large rifle slung across his/her back. Unless Spellslingers or Warriors can use rifle weapons then we're looking at something new.

    I thought the stealther was the spellslinger at first. I enjoyed playing a stealther in swtor though from the trailer it looks like in wildstar you can't walk normally or run in stealth.

    That might mean I can't use it as a quick escape in pvp

    The rifle looks like a pretty cool piece of kit. A nice rifles class could tempt me away from Spellslinger.

    That stealth is probably from the explorer path. As far as the second picture that is a duel wield riffle, but it shows that there will be a great deal of customization available for races.

    The Stealth class is confirmed. In the voiceover for the video. And I agree, it may be a customisation option but I'd be disappointed if it was.

    I would like it if it was another race completely.

    you mean making stealth a racial ability?

    I'd think that would be difficult for the people who liked the ability, but did not like the race.

    looks like a slandered human race just with weird hair

    as far as spellslingers with rifles I think I remember in one of the videos saying they are a duel wield class, so I dont thinks hes a spellslinger but I have been wrong before

    And if it is the human race then that does show a lot of customization in comparison to the guy from the trailer.

    if you look at the legs from the knees you can see that picture has the same type of leg structure as the human same thing with the shoulders,

    As far as customization, it petty much just looks like a hair style change with some body type tweaks here and there

    I personally hope for a few customizeable options with the races like gender along with other things. If it doesn't have at least that then I think it should be f2p. really looking forward to being able to try this, I've never seen a MMO with these graphics as well as the way they move. Can't wait to see how it turns out, anyone have any idea on when the BETA will be active

    I'd say Aurin Warrior - with a polearm rather than a sword (the attacks we've seen would probably work with either). But nice catch.

    It looks more like a staff then a polearm to me and she wears heavy/plate armor. So I tend to speculate towards a heavy armor caster melee hybrid type of class. Maybe something like a paladin.

    For all we know she might just be a high level ESPer 'Tank spec' maybe?

    It's a Staff, i found her in an old [gc2011 demonstration]. So she is an NPC but maybe she personifies a playable class.

    And maybe the stealth class has access to the sniper rifle or the rifle class can use them in on of his trees? To much speculating. Hope we become soon new answers.

    So we know 3 already, and we are pretty sure there is a stealth class. This leaves us with only 4 classes at the moment. Do you think there will be more? I'm thinking at least 6, maybe 8?

    What are your thoughts?

    I'm expecting to see a glass cannon caster type of class. Esper seems to be a mind power based class with a healing option. I expect to see a class that shoots fireballs or lasers out of their eyes.

    It would also be cool to see a class similar to an engineer in GW2 with gadgets that make things blow up.

    Also would like to see a class with a companion/pet that fights with you.
