Release Class Poll

crysentcrysent cedar rapids, IAMember Posts: 841 Uncommon

Without going into detail, having stuck through the beta, I've found myself really enjoying Wildstar.  The new player experience almost turned me off, but the game gets incredibly fun (While playing ESO, I often find myself thinking of Wildstar..)

 

So, with release on the horizon, which class to plan to play as your main?

    Esper just feels the best to me with the combat system in place.

    Poll is looking about right. On bigger polls the spread evens out a bit more. Seems like all the classes are popular enough.

    I love the medic class.  I will be playing Medic/Settler. That is definitely a high demand combo. Settler IMO is OP :-)

    I really enjoy Esper, even though it can be a pain in the neck.  Truth is, I'll end up playing all of them, though.  If I weren't stubbornly fond of Esper, I'd probably pick the Stalker first, as it seems to be a solo powerhouse for leveling.  But meh.  Played Shade in AO, was fun, ready for something different.

    How close do you have to be for you to call it melee? The Medic has basically the same range as the stalker/warrior.....with a couple of exceptions, which is true for every class. The Esper and Spellslinger are even described in promotion as the 2 ranged healers.

    I'm still not sure..

     

    I've enjoyed Stalker, Warrior and Medic..

     

    so hard to pick.

    Uh, that would be the medic.

    Whats the class least vulnerable to lag?

    Isnt there a range class, spell slinger or esper, that uses tab targeting?

    I'm torn between Esper and Engineer... I enjoy both of them very much. 

    But at launch I'll probably roll Esper

     

     

    or Engineer

    I'm going for Warrior.

     

    In a game where you have to constantly move around and beware of your surroundings I can't resist to stay at the very front. I got sold when I saw the raidbosse-telegraphes that reminded me of a touhou-like bullethell xD

    Strange I thought for sure stalker would be #1. In game thats the main class when asked. "what the best class". Nice to see it might not be :)

  • grapevinegrapevine PeterboroughMember Posts: 1,927 Uncommon
    Spellslinger, but I'm hoping they fix the problem with (holstered) gun positioning and size.  As it's really off putting and I'm not really fond of the other classes.

    Warrior will be my only class, I hate alts.
  • Alber_gamerAlber_gamer RomeMember Posts: 587 Uncommon

    With the telegraph system in place, there's no class least vulnerable to lag. If you have lag, you're screwed.

     

    There is no tab targetting at all for any class. You can "highlight" foes with tab, but your skils won't go directed to them unless you aim. The tab highlightning is merely to get information on the enemy (health, buffs, etc).

    My opinion is my own. I respect all other opinions and views equally, but keep in mind that my opinion will always be the best for me. That's why it's my opinion.

    For healing I heard espers actually need to directly target a lot with their skills. To my knowledge might be the only exception tho.

    Yeah there are targetted support skills on allies, but you can't tab on them, need to click either on them or their character frame. (Or use F2-F5 buttons if in party).

    Both those classes dont use mellee weapons and in my vision dont quallify as a melee class

     

    so far only the warrior was fun soloing.....   And all three healers wherefun in groups..   .... Warrior tanking however is also fun..

    So far my favorite classes are engineer/medic then warrior then spellslinger/stalker followed by a very distant esper.

    I'm gonna roll an engineer at launch because I'm more interested in tanking than healing, but I'll roll a medic at some point as well.

  • JenuvielJenuviel Seattle, WAMember Posts: 960
    Warrior and Stalker are my two favorites. I'll probably play Warrior at launch because I like to craft my own armor, and gathering leather for medium armor is a huge pain in the caboose. Ore for heavy armor is just significantly more abundant.
  • VolgoreVolgore Member Posts: 3,290 Rare
    If i buy the game, i'll play Stalker solo and Esper when playing with someone else. Always found rogue classes very immersive in soloplay and i love healing others.

    From my experience with the game it feels like there is no real melee whatsoever. Its just game of shorter telegraphs and longer telegraphs. If I ever play this game again Im gonna choose a class with a gun or something, because watching character swing weapon wildly in the air and enemy 5 meters away somehow takes damage, it doesnt feel right to me. Not to mention the lack of impact or anything.

    Going to play purely PvP as a healer/burst dps hybrid and as such I will choose Spellslinger.

    Engineer. If they can get the game's performance sorted out.

    biggester disappointment: Esper is a static class while everyone else has a lot of mobility. I was really looking forward to Esper.... Just like wizards from Neverwinter, a cool class screwed by ground glue.
