All of WildStar’s six classes offer players exciting ways to explore and interact with everything in Carbine’s upcoming sci-fi MMORPG. Whether you want to play a tank, healer, damage dealer, or a combination of the three, we’re here to help you decide which class is for you. For even more on each class, check out our in-depth looks of the Warrior, Esper, Spellslinger, Stalker, Medic, and Engineer which we have talked about before.
The Warrior – Tank or Damage
Sure there are Warriors in every MMO, but that’s because it’s incredibly appealing to be the big brute who can wield swords bigger than you are and defend your allies against the fiercest of enemies. Not to mention the Warriors in WildStar flaunt a deadly arm cannon. If you enjoy testing your might with huge sword swipes, brute force, and leading your group in battle, the Warrior is for you.
The Esper – Healer or Damage
Do you love conjuring illusions? We’re not only talking about animals, but weapons and other manifestations as well. If so, then you’ll love the Esper. This class can be played as a long-range healer and has been described as the most “familiar” healing class, as they use more targeted heals than the other classes (rather than freeform abilities). But don’t let their cuddly healing side fool you, Espers also double as incredible ranged damage dealers. There’s nothing more satisfying than beating your enemies to a pulp as an ethereal deer creature.
The Spellslinger – Damage or Healer
The cockiest class in WildStar is great for players who love high skill-cap abilities. They mosey around with their dual pistols either dealing tons of ranged damage from afar, or shooting their friends in the face with heals. Thanks to their innate ability Spell Surge, which allows them to choose when to unleash heavy amounts of burst damage or heals, it’s important that if you play this class you have a strategic sense of your surroundings with less WS gold.
The Stalker – Tank or Damage
Does creeping around in stealth and demolishing your targets with wolverine claws sound fun? Then you’ll love the Stalker. Not only can these bad boys dish out some of the most powerful attacks in WildStar if they get the right angle, but they’re also unique tanks. Rather than wielding a sword and board, they use their evasive maneuvers to take advantage of the battlefield and get out of harm’s way, then right back in to the face of their enemies. Did I mention they can also stealth in combat?
The Medic – Healer or Damage
Don’t be fooled by the Medic’s name. This class packs an impressive punch and is great for those who love being in the middle of a fight rather than standing back and throwing out heals. Their abilities don’t go as far as other classes, so if a Medic wants to heal their allies they have to be in the thick of a battle just like everyone else. They’re also the most technologically savvy of the classes, so if you’re in to lasers and futuristic weaponry, you’ll dig the Medic.
The Engineer – Tank or Damage
It’s hard to think of something more awesome than a ranged tanking class. But when the Engineer can do that and summon cute robot pets, it’s hard not to love them. They stand in the back of a fight and punish multiple enemies as long as they can micromanage their pets. Not to mention their Innate ability allows them to transform in to a mechanical weapon of destruction. If you want to play something unique as well as challenging, definitely try the Engineer.
Now that you’ve had some time to get to know each of WildStar’s six classes, which one are you going to pick?
