    I thought the same thing when i saw the pic. I do think this will be the Medic class, but i can see it as the Engineer. Ether way that armor looks sweet.

    SO is the medic and hand to hand class, or a ranged? From the last Twitch stream, they said Spellslinger and Esper are the longest ranged classes.

    I hope 'Medic' is a range class, because I'm not a melee type person, but the medic looks really awesome.

    Medic, Esper, Spellslinger are supposed to have equally good healing.

    Healing classes need to have SOME range if they're to be effective at all at their job: healing.

    Besides, WildStar is blurring the gap between melee and ranged classes which should prove to assist in the balancing process. We already saw in the warrior devspeak how warriors will have plenty of effective ranged options to even the fight.

    They are ranged, with abilities ranging from 15m - 25m. DPS abilities tend to be 15m and heals 25m. Although this information is old and could have changed now.

    For reference, most of the other ranged class abilities are 25m

    Unno if anyone else saw this, and I know Medic and Engineer are the likely classes, but in the new Warrior twitch episode at 36:10 you can see a list of addons and one of the OFF addons is Charmer, only a few above Stalker and Spellslinger.

    Carbine is probably just trolling us lol

    It might be the name of an addon that has something to do with monitoring CC, interrupt armor, etc.

    Has it truly been confirmed that Medic will be the dps/heal class and the Engineer the tank/dps class? I just need to be sure before I can call myself an Engineer seeing as I want to tank. xP

    Well, I think "Medic" sounds like a Healer class, don't you? I mean, maybe Carbine could go a Bizarro-World and make the Medic a Tank out of some twisted sense of humor ...

    I dunno. I think that'd be pretty damn funny.

    Medic class tanks by self healing. Gains stacking buff "Do No Harm" whenever nearby party member dies expecting a heal/stealing aggro. Physician heal thy self....

    I'm pretty sure/confirmed that Medic is a heal/DPS class and engineer is a tank/range dps class. :D

    Yeah, I'm not sure that there is a distinct separation between the two canonical types of DPS in WildStar, like we've seen in every other MMO. Every class seems to have the abilities that will complement either playstyle to a degree.
