    Do you happen to have the source for this? Have a weird feeling I read this relatively recently as well, but I can't find it. Would be nice to have.

    For me it was implied when the tester was playing a stealth class.

    Unannounced race, not class. :p We already know there's an unannounced stealth class, thanks to Mr. Gaffney himself!

    Yeah he would have reported to us if he were playing a Doom Onion. There is no way he was on Ex-Lax side!

    I'd like throw in my 2 cents here, and add that maybe an alien-type race should be fit. I'm talking not sexy bunny rabbit girls, but what we're used to seeing in movies, possible tenticles, really long, with scales for those reptilian lovers, because the game is set in an outer galaxy, i'm thinking, Nexus could have caught the attention of some bypassing alien race :)

    Yeah that's something that bothered me a bit in SWTOR, I know there are some technical things to think about but all the races they chose were too human. You had blue humans, green humans, blind humans, humans with spikes on their head, etc. I'd like to see something a bit out of the ordinary.

    Of all the aliens in the star wars universe that they could have chosen, they chose the ones that are the most humanesque...

    Why can't I play an Abyssian? He would've done very well as a Imperial Bounty Hunter. I don't know if he could be a jedi but who cares?

    They would have been more interesting for sure, I was hoping to play the Togruta and the Mon Calamari. :)

    I don't think so, I imagine they might have different initial stats, for different playstyles, however, that doesn't mean one is better than the other, but this is just a personal speculation, could be completely different.

    If I recall what they mentioned on a Wildstar Wednesday. You'll have Strength Based Warriors running around with Magical Based Warriors. Perhaps one races stats will be slightly more appealing to stacking strength ((Granok Warriors for example.)) While another race would find a more Magical Based Warrior to be appetizing ((Aurin Warriors for example.))

    This is just speculation of course, they could just make it an even playing field for all we know. Though if they do decide to allocate more of a certain stat to each race to make them more unique, the increase would be so miniscule that it shouldn't leave any race at a disadvantage during the long term.

    If I read correctly, there are classes that classes cannot be. Perhaps Granoks can't be Espers or something like that. *shrugs*

    Yup, there's going to be race-based class restrictions.
