Fansite WildStar Central got some information on three confirmed WildStar races and classes that are playable in the Gamescom demo. If you've watched the cinematic trailer, then you've seen the above three race/class combos in action. Just to be clear, Carbine Studios' you will be able to choose your own race/class combination. Also, you will be able to customize your character. For ease of character creation in the demo, we pre-made all three of them so players could jump right in."
Here are the details WildStar Central founder MistaMike collected from the demo:
- The Granok, a fierce race of mercenaries who have come to Nexus, look forward to cracking some Dominion skulls - free of charge.
- The Humans, exiled from their homeworld by the tyrannical Dominion, hope to make planet Nexus their new home.
- The Aurin, fleeing from Dominion invaders that are ravaging their forest homeworld, seek refuge upon the mysterious world of Nexus.
- The Warrior hits hard with a mix of vicious melee strikes and tech-powered attacks. Fuel Cells power the Warrior's tech attacks such as Ripsaw, Leap and grenades. They regenerate over time independently of one another. Adrenaline is generated and consumed by the Warrior's sword-based attacks. Adrenaline decays while out of combat.
- The Spellslinger deals death from a distance with a pair of magic-infused pistols. The greater the Spellslinger's Charge meter, the more damage he deals with his attacks. It recharges over time and is refilled by magical abilities. Arcana powers the Spellslinger's magical abilities. It regenerates quickly in combat and decays slowly while out of combat.
- The Esper conjures psychic spells that charge up devastating mental onslaughts. Combo Points are generated by Builder abilities such as Telekinetic Strike and consumed to improve the effectiveness of Finishing Moves such as Mind Stab. They degenerate when out of combat. Mana is required to cast magical abilities. It regenerates slowly over time when out of combat.
