    They've said every path will be able to unlock all the galactic archives but the scientist path will get "more". As for what that means I guess we'll have to wait for path reveal.

    Maybe extended entries. Something as simple as "footnotes", even. (It's be cool if they were handwritten, and the Chua left little inky pawprints all OVER THE PAPER AND OMG THIS IS THE CUTEST THING I'VE EVER IMAGINED)

    Ha ha I swear the evidence suggesting Chua as the last race for Dominion has been the best thing for our numbers since well... ever.

    OMG, instead of "footnotes", they could call them "PAWNOTES" *DIES*

    I also am very excited about the scientist path but in all honesty I will probably roll alts with the explorer and settler paths too because they look just as interesting!!

    Shadowclasper, this dilemma you are facing is the exact same one I am! In fact, I was going to make a thread about it at some point. :p

    In terms of gameplay, I think that what we've heard of the Settler sounds so much more my style. But I'm just hugely OCD about 'missing out' on stuff that I think I'm almost certainly playing a Scientist at launch. :oops:

    I think I'm going to have to have a character for each path honestly they all seem so good. I'm glad they at least allow us to do some of the other path stuff regardless through grouping and what not.

    Well so am I, but I'll have my main Hetros who has always always always been an archivist of one sort or another, always a scholar. So I guess scientist is natural for him... though I might run him as a warrior or other "tanky" class if I can, simply because it's a change of pace, and Esper doesn't call to me that much.

    I think this is almost certainly the way I'm going to have to go as well. I just don't like the idea that there's stuff in-game that I haven't/couldn't unlock.

    I tell myself with each and every MMO that I play though, "I'm just going to concentrate on one character..." One always ends up being at least four.

    I like what they said in the TB videos, about the paths fitting the player Archetypes. In terms of that I suppose I'm a Scientist, as I love lore, and learning about critters.

    I remember buying those books that had all the creatures from a movie or video game in great detail, like the Harry Potter "Magical Creatures" guide, or the "Beasts of Pandora" from Avatar!

    On that note.. Keep in mind that when game is released I plan to make a Settler Circle of committed players to help make the best vendors/mountpads/tax-service and anything else available to players by Settlers for the most optimal experience on the server. If any settlers are interested in this just send me a private PM with your name and i'll be sure to keep you posted when game releases.

    P.S The circle will focus more on end game content, but will help any newbie zones that are the most populated.

    If they let us do anything with critters, animals, or especially mini-pets... It's over. That'd be my path.

    The first time I saw the path pick even, I thought it, "Critter in a tank. Check. Critter on the ground. Check..." If "scanning" beasts is more interactive and maybe even more akin to "capturing" some of them somehow, sign me up.

    Awesome! These were pretty much my thoughts too. :D Anything animal-related is definitely my kind of thing. Even just getting a little information off each animal to me would be really neat. If they incorporated adding some creatures as pets, even if just temporarily, that would pretty much be the most amazing thing ever.
