    So going scientists if it unfolds into the idea of being able to build nifty floating robots as pictured in the silhouette!

    I seem to recall the Scientist Mechanic is the floating probe (as seen in the trailer, with the Aurin ESPer), like the Explorer Mechanic is the Locator Beacon.

    Yeah, I think that probe has something to do with the Scientist path too. Judging from this concept art piece, you'll probably use it to scan and collect samples from Nexus?

    Just a thought - it's interesting how all the characters in the paths artwork are human. I wonder if later on, when choosing race/class combos is opened up, they'll implement race-specific art for the path options. Would be fun to see a Granok settler, or Aurin soldier! I don't think Carbine necessarily needs to go that route, but it's just interesting considering the lack of racial diversity in those particular screens.

    I do wonder what perks the Settler path will have, too. Perhaps a more vitality or resistance to the elements of Nexus?

    I'm wondering if the "building" in the Settler path will include race-specific architecture (but not function). It would be interesting to see certain player hubs leaning towards "Oh, there's a lot of Granok in this city", or "Well, you can certainly tell the Aurin run this part of town.."

    Take it a step further- what if "Settlers" are the only way to receive player-housing?
    Imagine the want/need for these pathtakers.

    I really wonder which path will be picked the most by the community.

    I am so unsure as of right now, I (we) simply need more information...

    I am most interested in Explorer, but I could imagine all 4 Paths to be exciting... probably going to chose Soldier for my main however, and explorer for my first twink. Because Soldier seems to be the best path for a fighter~

    Aha, I came into this cool thread while I was looking for those pics depicting the energy styles of the 3 classes released.

    But where can I find them....

    It will probably be explorer or scientist for me. Can't wait to find out more.

    Settler's will be able to upgrade towns with vendors and such is what I have heard as of right now. They posted it on their Youtube channel with the title "Wildstar Friends and Family Update". They start talking about it at 2:26

    My only problem is going to be deciding -which- path to start with. Hmm Explorer or Scientist...

    Never a truer statement said, Finally those of us who go and explore are being rewarded beyond the awesome scenery and self accomplishment. (Coming from the player who spends hours trying to get up a single hill :p)

    How can you even start to decide when there are potentially more classes coming. Like the classes for the other faction, the Warrior, the Scout and the Researcher!

    Brainhex questionaire. An intersting test that was posted awhile back by Siegaplays... One of the posters here on WSC. I recommend it, it's fun. :)

    There is a thread on the topic that you can post your results (and see some others) in called the gamer brain.:up:

    That was interesting! I think for a lot of people, unless you are the explorer type, it just determines how you play your class more than what class you play.
