    Did anyone else notice that the Available Races are not for all Classes? If so sorry I missed it but I think its cool they restrict it some like they are. Was new to me so don't flame me!

    I'm actually happy to see there will be 6, so a future 8 will be even better.

    It's very possible six will be available at launch, because it would be pretty bad if the Granok can only choose one class at launch. There would be less appeal to choose the race compared to the others.

    So apparently every class uses a specific weapon. I'm a little disappointed with that.

    I don't necessarily think that's the case. These are overviews of the classes -- not in-depth showings.

    I think they are referring to the class pages on the official site. For example, Warriors are listed as using Tech Swords.

    What was displayed would be their main weapons, but we've seen classes in footage and screenshots using other weapons. Rods, Rifles, and Grenade Launchers, to name them.

    Well, I would assume one of the remaining classes will be something that tends to have a "beefy" physical appearance, because right now the Granok can only be a warrior. So, so curious.

    Well, the armor rounds on his chest certainly seem to suggest this. Also, the furry skull shoulders suggest he's more beast related. A commando pet class?

    They seem to have balanced melee and ranged classes at this point. I hope they stick with the trend and make one more melee and one more ranged.

    I can see that. I'm also wondering if the last two classes are faction only classes?

    i'd bet that they're not faction only classes, i think that the Granok need more than 2 classes that they can be....

    I agree, though, I would also like to see them mix up the tanks and healers a bit. So far both tanks are also melee and both healers are also ranged.

    A melee healer would be cool, as would a ranged tank.

    I love melee healers and ranged tanks, far too underrepresented in MMO gaming these would be awesome classes to play

    I was under the impression that the skill system wasn't dissimilar to the one used in the original Guild Wars. Where each class had plenty of skills to draw from but had to make a selection of 10 or so to have on their bar at any one time. Coupled with a stat system, this can give any class a surprising amount of depth or can completely change a play style.

    And the boxes under the other two give me the impression that they are locked for the time being, so I would expect six rather than eight classes.

    Based on what we've see so far, I think one of the remaining classes will be a tech based healer.

    So far both healing classes heal using magical or mental energies, with Wisdom being their primary stat. With the 6 currently revealed races, so far only the Granok and Mechari cannot play healers. The healing mechanism would have to be something different.

    Didn't the Exiled Granok get kicked off their home planet for stealing Dominion technology?

    So far the Mechari can only play 2 of the 4 classes, and Granok only 1.

    A melee range healing class that heals using tech - shields, damping, mitigation, safe zones, etc - seems like it could really fit.

    I was thinking about what the two remaining classes could be, and I came up with the exact same thing!

    A melee dps/healer tech-based class and a ranged dps/tank one, possibly with a focus on rifles.

    Something like the Scoundrel/Agent and Vanguard/Powertech in SWTOR.

    So we know 4 of the 6 now.

    The last two are going to available to granok and the other robot race. So i'm guessing some sort of bulky class, maybe Commando and Engineer.
