    Hello, all.

    Although relatively new to Wildstar, I have played several action RPGs and MMOs, but this one seems to be different.

    On the bottom of the screen, you have buttons for 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8. These seem to be your various abilities.

    When I look at my Character, I have a weapon slot with a various weapon in there. When I use the '1' button for instance, does it use my weapon that is in the weapon slot? Or are these abilities different than the weapon?

    If different, how do I actually use the weapon that is in the weapon slot? I am guessing when I use the ability buttons, it automatically does this? I am used to actually dragging my desired weapons in to the number slots.

    Any of this make sense?

    Weapons are just stat sticks effectively. They are required for your abilities to function, but the only real difference between say a gun and a sword is the graphic and animations. The numbered slots are for your abilities and your abilities are what actually do things.

    What's really fun, is that if you are a Medic, some of your abilities will show you pulling a 2-handed Engineer gun from your back and shooting it, while your Medic resonators remain firmly attached to their original spot.

    The Weapon is really just a prop, as Livin stated. 1-8 are your various attacks, most of which use your weapon. If the weapon is equipped on your Char screen (P), you are using it.
