    Great FAQ, Starspun! Thanks for this.
    As for the Rating, look at World of Warcraft- a Teen game where you can get drunk. I don't see why WildStar could not enable the same.

    I know that - what I meant was that if they're aiming for a lower than Teen rating, it can't be alcohol he's drinking, and the Whimbeer glass they showed off a while ago wouldn't really be relevant at all.

    I thought I read or heard something about mini-games in regards to crafting, but I can't find it again. If I heard correctly and they decide to stick with that idea, that could be really interesting though!

    Ah, I see, I see.
    Well, I seriously hope this game doesn't go for a less than Teen rating- considering they've mentioned that this was a game for "adults"- taking inspiration from themes such as Hellboy, and well, Naruto... but still.

    I hear you. I've seen a fair amount of people disregard this title already, saying it's a "child's game" - as though it's Free Realms with its own client rather than browser based. ಠ_ಠ

    I won't lie. When I first saw "WildStar", I looked at two screenshots and I thought it was similar to another MapleStory. >_>
    I'm extremely happy I was wrong, of course. I know Free to Play is big right now, but I'd much rather spend the $15 a month for a quality game that continues to grow. I've been pretty disappointed with what's been released the last few years... so I'm anxiously awaiting the next quality MMO to put its foot down. And this title has grabbed my attention and hasn't let go. Granted it's only been a day, but, I think I've watched the cinematic at least six or seven times now. It hasn't even been 24 hours since I've discovered it, either. Hahaha.

    Perhaps the art style right away leads one to think that. I admit I did to in the first... 4 seconds? Then Aurin Bunny girl with ample cleavage walks out of the ship? Spellslinger goes "OMGLAZER BLAAAAAAAAARRRGGGG on the plant monster leaving a charred hole where the things brain probably was?

    About the only other thing I can think of to change the perception of this big a child's mmo is... Aurin Pinups, and blood splatter everywhere.

    I'm down for some blood splatter!
    Maybe not even gory, but for those scenes when you perform a finishing move, after the mob explodes, have some splatter/chunks "hit" the screen. Similar to how they handled it in Conan.

    Why did you go and mention THAT. Now I'm going to be plagued with wanting to draw sexy alien bunny girls until... until I DO.

    Looks really good. I love the idea of collating everything into one location so that it is easy to get info. Kudos!

    Nice FAQ starspun.

    For your update the following might need amending:

    Q: I saw this gameplay video and it looked like the race, gender and class was locked so there's really only three choices, is that for real?!
    A: Fret not, those were demo characters. Race, gender and class will be independent choices. Yes, that does mean you'll be able to make a male Aurin Warrior if you want to!

    Underlined the bit I'm unsure if correct as looking at the wildstar site when Aurin is chosen as the race the Warrior class is greyed out.
    Apologies if I'm mistaken and hope this helps if I'm not.
