WildStar crosses factional barriers, mulls new class/race combos

    
43

What’s brewing in WildStar’s labs these days? Only a whole vat of changes, that’s what.

As a result of Carbine’s first DevConnect forum survey, the studio said that it will be breaking down some of the barriers between the Dominion and Exile factions. Coming soon, players will be able to use the content finder across factions and talk between the factions. The studio is still keeping the faction lines firm in other areas, namely with guilds, housing, warparties, and open world grouping.

Seeing as how this post led to significant change in the game, players might want to take Carbine’s latest DevConnect as a sign of things to come. The studio is currently polling its community on what new race and class combos it would like to see come to the game.

Because Wildstar’s reps (most whom are gone now) were acting like a bunch of arrogant swaggering dudebros and ended up falling flat on their face once the game launched.  People enjoy watching that kind of thing.

Wildstar is going to have to think way outside the box and offer an uniquely new experience to have any chance of bringing in new players and bringing back past ones. This is a step in the right direction.

The thing that really pisses me off about Tabula Rasa is that they made it an amazing experience AFTER they decided to cancel it. The last week or so of that game is something that I would have played for a long time. Instead they wait until it is cancelled to make the game fun, and left many of us with memories of what could have been instead of an MMO that should still be around.
As for Wildstar, it’s about time. It would be nice if Blizzard followed suit but arrogance and pride will keep that from happening.

What about a class overhaul? They are not fun. I got tired quickly with the non existance of dept in mechanisims. Almost no synergie between skills and classes. They problem is not the lack of combo, it’s in the classes itself.

deekay_zero Bannex19 Actually, I was playing City of when it closed, myself. Was in the middlle of trying out the ‘sort of alternate faction’ stuff with the intent to head into the villain storylines at the time. :-/

Bannex19 It’s still not City of Heroes, that’s why it gets the hate.

Wildstar is still going? I would have thought NCSoft would have closed them down by now.

BritoBruno ManastuUtakata Oh man, tiny pink furry balls of slicey dicey fun.  I’ve wanted it since the game launched.

I wish devs everywhere would just stop with the race/class/gender combo restrictions. It adds nothing and it’s annoying.
Just stop.
