    Thus far I haven't seen much detail about anything related to Cross-Faction interaction in the game so I'll ask about the real meat about it.

    While this game will have two rivaling factions, will it have effects on guilds and grouping for party/raids? Total faction segregation gives rise to a new issues especially for friends and families who may not enjoy playing the same faction yet still want to play together. How do you plan to address this issue? Will you take a more traditional route like WoW or be more open like with Rift?

    Is multi-guilding, or multi-association constructs a game feature in WildStar?

    Some abilities cancel-on-movement, others can be casted while moving. You can cancel any ability before it's finished, though.

    With that knowledge PvP seems more about zone control now... How fun!!

    It better be. Battle grounds and other instanced PvP is boring to me.

    I meant more in the actual combat. You can direct opponents into traps by "telegraphing" a big nuke in one spot, and then they run over to a different spot where you are waiting to ambush them. Now it's going to look more like a frenetic chess game. :D

    Chess is the best PvP game ever made.

    Are class/race restrictions final or is there still hope for us poor, little Aurin Warriors?

    I gotta admit, I haven't read through all the questions, so it's possible this has already been mentioned, but in case it hasn't:

    Will there be cross faction communication? So many games completely restrict the interactions between the two sides, but I'd personally love to be able to chat with both sides, none the least for the sake of potential roleplay.

    A few questions for consideration.

    1. To what degree will ranged classes play a part in the game. Thus far, the videos appear to have a heavy focus on melee combat.
    2. Are abilities tied to weapons? Put another way, do classes have different forms of weapons available? For example, can a stalker use a blaster pistol or is it strictly tied to using melee claws?
    3. Because no one else has asked this...when will beta start and what kind of bribes do you take to get in :)
    4. What, if any, thoughts are there on player cities?

    Hi Khade! I can answer three of these questions for you.

    1. Carbine has announced 2 ranged classes and 2 melee classes as of right now. (Ranged: Esper, Spellslinger // Melee: Warrior/Stalker) and as such I think it's safe to assume that we'll have 1 more of each a ranged and melee class.

    2. Each class is tied to a weapon -- greatsword for the warrior, blasters for the spellslinger, psyblades for the esper, and claws for the stalker. All evidence that we've seen thus far points to these not being interchangeable.

    3. The best part is you don't have to bribe them! Just be active on these forums and show Carbine how excited you are about the game :)

    4. <REDACTED> :p

    And welcome to WSC!

    Sexual deviancy is a rampant, and probably unavoidable, problem in MMOs and anything having to do with the Internet, really.

    In that respect: what are the options for physical and sexual attractiveness with our characters, if there are any? Personally, my Aurin Scientist Lifira is going to be flatter than cardboard, but I understand that some players like some bounce in their females.

    I would be rather sad if all of our characters were stuck with one body type, and the same size for their assets.

    Also, since the game has already gone to the point of blatant alcohol consumption, what other more "adult" things will we be seeing that skirt the line between "Not for Kiddies" and "Shouldn't be seen by Kiddies"?

    I'm hoping for a bar run only by Aurin, with less revealing Playboy style outfits, where the password is "Yes, I'm into that."

    hey carbine studios, I've got a couple of questions:

    1) what does the actual world look like?
    2) is there more than one continent/ planet that you need to take some kind of ride to?
    3) what is the class that uses the rifle like in the house video?

    I thought the same before starting to play go.

    The way telegraphs are made they really can make more fun to PvP system giving some more dinamic to it. All depends on how they are implemented in the game.
