    Happy Gamescom everyone!

    I imagine that over the next few days there will be all sorts of Wildstar tidbits to discover, not only through official Carbine venues, but also via 3rd party news sites, twitter, youtube, etc. I don't know if the people who try the demo are allowed to take video, but lets hope they are!

    Anyways, if you come across anything, post it here so we can all obsess together :)

    There isn't much yet of course, but here's another angle of the Wildstar booth (courtesy of Chad Moore @Pappylicious). [​IMG]

    Looks like a cross breed. At first glance the human nature makes it's aurin but then you see the ears are on the side and it looks like there are some horns on top, though they seem to be off to the side. Also, the teeth appear more draken to me but maybe I'm just looking to hard at this. Lastly there appear to be tattoos or at least body paint which I believe is a draken thing, as well.

    Based on the horns, teeth, tats, and war paint, I'd say draken. Setup looks pretty sweet.

    I'm pretty sure he's Aurin. The whites of is eyes are actually white, and his hands are way too pretty for Draken. Plus, I don't see any horns? I think that one thing poking up in the back is the tip of tail? Not really sure. The ears make me doubt myself, but I'm still gonna go with Aurin. Either that, or Aurin/Draken/Human mutt (which is certainly preferable to a Chua/Mordesh hybrid).

    puts on lore hat, and adjusts it to be just off center

    Mordesh cannot reproduce.

    And shame on you for talking about undead Chua already. Carbine was saving that juicy tidbit for an expansion. I guess the cat's out of the bag now.:(

    Cannot reproduce...currently. Maybe the hybrids were created before the Mordesh were infected. Or...if you take a Chua and infect it with the Mordesh "virus"...what does it become? Or...maybe there was a disaster in a lab, involving a Mordesh scientist and a lab "rat". Or...maybe the Chua's genderless reproductive voodoo magic is the only thing that will allow Mordesh to procreate. Talk about dirty little secrets!

    You're right though, undead Chua should probably be on the list of prohibited topics.

    Maybe the display is double sided and there's something (like a draken) on the back, hence the horns.

    Let me start by emphatically stating: I am hoping you are correct in the strongest way possible.

    That said, is there something in the tweet or the booth picture that i'm just not seeing that makes you think the class reveal will be tomorrow?

    Look at about 10 tweets down in the conversation. Someone asks about the weapon in the Mechari's hands. Then the dev responds very conspicuously. He makes another similar comment here:

    I personally think we will see class reveals sooner rather than later. Maybe I'm just an optimist, but I think the new classes will be playable along with the Chua/Mordesh races (we've already seen quite a bit of low level play with the other classes). Since there is no panel that would facilitate a class announcement at a specific date or time, it makes more sense that they would reveal a class (or classes) tomorrow and let the demoing begin! Plus, tomorrow is Wildstar Wednesday :) If not tomorrow, I wouldn't be surprised if we had to wait until PAX.

    Hmmmmm. I hope you're right! That would be awesome! :D Too much awesome stuff in the gaming world right now. Wildstar reveals (and a likely expansion announcement for XCOM: EU) at Gamescom, Rome 2: Total War soon, Hex, and Hearthstone all have me chomping at the bit and they all have stuff going on right now! It's some serious overload.

    If they do announce the final classes at Gamescom, maybe I can finally decide on what i'll be playing!

    Unless the Mechari is holding some kind of blunt blade weapon(or a fist weapon?) and it's a Stalker, I'd say new class, since they look more like some kind of dual guns, and Mechari can't be Spellslingers.

    If you go to this thread on the class forum, it looks quite similar to what we see in the "alchemist" photos that were posted.

    Oops, failed copy. Here you go, although you probably found it on your own already.
