    Given the nature of the LAS system, it seems like it would be easier for them to add new skills rather than add new classes. Let's say that each class right now has 50 total skills they can eventually purchase. If you play long enough your character can purchase them all. Though they could only use a set number at a time in their LAS.

    Fast forward a year after launch. Lots of people have gone through their classes and they know how things work together. But people are getting a little bored. Carbine can sit down and create say three new skills per class and upload them to the live servers. They could even create new skills based on certain yearly events. Overtime individual classes could accumulate as many as 75 individual skills.

    The ability to add new skills to existing classes, an tailor them as needed, is a pretty clever way to keep people interested in the game as the years go by.

    I'm curious though. Which would people find more interesting that would draw them to the game say, two years after launch? New races, or new classes?

    Extatica isn't just a ninja. Extatica is a Chua Ninja!

    The difference being that a Ninja Chua ninja giggle loudly when they stab someone. It doesn't help much for stealth and sneaking, but they're just so grotesquely cute!

    The first RPG Healer was the plate wearing, mace welding Cleric of AD&D. In that same game you will also find the cloth wearing Monk.

    I believe it says on the official WS site that warriors wear medium armor that upgrades to heavy, and stalkers wear light armor that upgrades to medium. Not sure if that's through your role choice (tanks get the upgrade and dps wear the armor lighter) or it just happens for every member of the class at a milestone level.

    Long term you'll probably see more classes - though they're like taking a wrecking ball to your current game meta, especially PvP. But for launch, I'd place bets on slim to none.

    Also I like diverse and unique MMO classes they make it feel like you're not doing the same thing on a different character because you have to handle situations in a near-entirely different way, WoW in particular suffers from horrible class homogenisation that started way back in TBC when the pre WoTLK talent and skill patch went live.

    At launch there will be 6 classes

    Post launch... who knows? Way too early to speculate

    Traditional RPG

    Warr/Barb = Warrior
    Theif/Rogue = Stalker
    Mage/Sorc = Spellslinger
    Priest/Cleric = Esper (obviously with mystic/illusionist ESP Green Lantern type qualities thrown in)

    Ranger/Hunter = Rifle class
    Paladin/Monk = melee healer

    Then what? As far as "traditional" the only other thing that comes to mind is some sort of Bard, maybe Druid but Rangers are really similar in some ways with nature and all. Or they could just try to be unique, which is hard after all the years of published fantasy and sci-fi I know. Also any class they add has to fit into a dps/healer or dps/tank hybrid role

    well, if you look closely - those still say Warrior uses Technology (which is right) and Strength (which is wrong). They use Tech and Brutality (i think it was).
    It also says Stalker uses Dexterity (which is wrong) and Technology (which is right). They now use Finesse and Technology.

    So - it looks like they need to update their class panels - they haven't gotten around to putting in the correct names for them yet, which means that they've not changed the light>medium and medium>heavy yet.

    Eight classes? Too good to be true. Maybe as a result of a few future expansions.

    I just pray the last 2 have something for me. It's bad odds and I tend to not be lucky unless my life literally depends on it. And aurin and draken better be able to play it.

    If you don't want to hear my thoughts, why don't you go blow yourself up? I understand that chua are pretty good at self-detonation. Natural selection at work; music to my big, bat-like ears.

    If the other two classes suck I'll probably end up playing a draken warrior and aurin esper for mains. Maaaaaybe I can try to be an aurin stalker but I've never liked rogue archetypes.
