    I believe those have been confirmed to be esper abilities, not a weapon type. Only one weapon per class and we already know espers got them sexy psyblades.

    It is confirmed the esper weapon is a "Psyblade", looks like a kinda shuriken on their backs. Probably used as a mental focus. :inlove:

    And Espers aren't pure DPS since Carbine has said that there won't be any class that is pure DPS. They'll all be able to DPS and then contribute as a healer or tank. In the esper's case, they can be healers as well.

    When you think about it the Esper technically has the most weapon models with the animation of their abilities. They don't always pull the psyblade off their back. Sometimes they summon psy-blades to fling at foes or a giant hand to crush them.

    On a serious note, I do wonder why so many NPC characters to seem to have a staff.

    It's the Stone Age Syndrome. Apparently they didn't get the memo that sticks are outdated weapons by about several hundred quintillion years ago or so.

    Could be a outdated weapon for the Espers or some other class during the earlier builds. I'm thinkin' instead of trashing the models that took many man hours to make, they decided to leave them in for NPCs to hold.

    That's my theory on it I guess.

    Neat!

    That also makes me wonder about something else. You know how we get 'Gadgets' for one of the LAS slots? I wonder if they will have an associate weapon or appearance based on the gadget.

    Why the hell would anyone use a staff in a sci-fi game? That's like running around with an over-sized sword in a world dominated by high tech weaponry, state of the art war machines, alien robot guardians and murderous wildlife at every corner? Oh wait...

    A Staff is only a glorified name for a walking stick.
