Game Preview: Wildstar Week Pt.3 – Paths

 

You remember people last week how I was talking about how engineering was job and not a class in most MMOs? Well feel that I need to clarify what I meant by ‘job’. See in MMOs players don’t just fight evil (or good depending on you faction) but they can also choose a job to learn. The benafit from a job is that, depending on the job mind you, players can get customized, speciallized, and/or unqiue item, weapons, and gear. Jobs usually involves alot of gathering ‘resoruces’ and learning new ‘recipes’ from vendors and the like. The job system in itself is not bad but it involves alot of busy work (some of which is not fun); even swtor, who had the most streamlined job system in my opinion, still had those familiar pitfall of jobs. Now I said all of that to say that Wildstar is atempting to change the job system; they don’t even all it ‘jobs’ they call them ‘Paths’. There’s only four (Settler, Scientist, Explorer, and Soldier) but with each path you can do so much and they aren’t limited to class or race either. From what I’ve seen people I’m very excited and impressed, I want to try them all. Get in the know and watch these vids.
