    So a discussion came up to change the class name "Warrior" into something more flavorful that suites Wildstar. Mainly because Carbine changed stat names like strength, dexterity into brutality, finesse etc.

    Some argued the name has been used a lot, and feels tired. While others like the classic name. Also, the other classes are not using very common fantasy names.

    Thoughts? The discussion lives on. Post some new names you would also like to see!
    P.S. Strong chance the Warrior will be my main at launch, I just want the name to be badass!


    Examples:

    Berserker
    Slayer
    Warblade
    Dreadnaught
    Blademaster
    Enforcer
    Cheese Slicer
    Fighter
    Brawler

    I'm personally all up for a name change, the warrior name is starting to feel a bit cheesy, and I would like something even more cheesy!

    Cheese Slicer, definitely sounds like a winner to me! :up:

    Berserker, Slayer, Warblade, Blademaster all don't fit the setting. Well Berserker could probably fit, depending on mechanics, but unless there's any rage "themed" skills...

    Dreadnought's quite possible, but Enforcer doesn't fit the class at all. Cheese slicer. heh. Fighter is too generic and Brawler is plain impossible.

    Dreadnought's the most fitting in the examples. Personally though, I don't think the class needs a name change, but Warrior is getting a little old. But I'm going Stalker anyway so what do I care? Heehee~!

    Warrior nice and simple everyone knows what it is. It should only change if they end up having sub classes in the future.

    I always thought even Soldier sounded more fitting than Warrior. Still, it's kind of iffy that we're still using swords in outer space.

    I agree warrior doesn't fit this style of game much i can see why they would call it that though to keep it so everyone knows what it is because by now in an mmo if you see the class warrior you know what to expect some what.

    I think Warrior sounds like a placeholder considering the other class names, I realize it isn't, but that's how wrong it looks, like they just named it quickly until they could think of something better. Warrior has been used far to many times in other games, it has lost its street cred IMO, I would prefer to see something like you mentioned, Berserker, Warblade, Enforcer, they all sound better to me, and a little more unique.

    TLDR : Warrior class name = YAWN

    Okay fine, in the hopes of composing a more constructive response, I still feel that bladed weapons stick in my jaw a little in sci-fi. Modern weaponry has evolved to the point where power is somewhat measured by how far away you can be while killing your enemy. I just find it a little jarring that in a world where interplanetary travel is possible, warfare technology would have boiled down to a sword, regardless of how technologically advanced the sword may be.

    Swords are still awesome though, just saying.

    i think that the soldier/warrior should get switched so soldiers the class and warriors the path. or if they keep them as they are maybe rename the warrior something like Trooper etc
