    I like the Aurin because they're tiny and scrappy, and well.... decades of anime & sci-fi have left me weak against adorable alien girls with bunny/cat ears.

    Mechari are boss, this is the first MMO where I have actually liked one of the launch races sufficiently to not be having an eye towards them hopefully adding a race I like better. Hell Drakar aren't bad either though I think the tail swinging back and forth animation would end up irritating me.

    Now they just need a ranged DPS class.....

    Yeah I completely agree. I want a ranged rifle class so I can model my Mechari after the infamous HK-47. I have seen a number of screen shots with player characters toting rifles like this one is from the housing video.

    I believe he was referring to a ranged class for the Mechari race.

    Unless this is an NPC (who sometimes don't follow the same rules as PCs have to), I think you might be in luck. :D

    My apologies everyone. I didn't see he was specifying Mechari. Not enough coffee early in the morning... Carry on!

    Speaking of coffee, I've got a 32oz iced coffee in hand haha

    Yeah it's hard to say in that screen, but if you look closely at the one I linked about it looks like the person is interacting with the housing interface which leads me to infer that it is likely a player character.

    Actually, after looking at this screenshot, I'm thinking these specific rifle-wielding Mechari are NPCs. While rifles are (as per the housing screenshot) in-game and accessible to players, that doesn't necessarily mean Mechari will be able to... but I'd be very surprised if they weren't. Another magic-based class with guns is just a tad much. :p

    Yeah I would be surprised if the Mechari were restricted to melee classes only. A side note that I saw somewhere about the Granok stated that they would be getting both of the new classes. Considering that the Granok are often featured toting a rifle (meet the exiles vid for example) I'd be very surprised if one of the two classes wasn't a ranged rifle class.

    I concur that if the rifle ranged class utilizing magic would be overly redundant. If I were to guess it would be some sort of commando/engineer class that utilizes tech to support their rifle weaponry. In other words Bass Ass

    Yeh i agree, i'll be very surprised if one of the 2 unrevealed classes isn't a rifle using class possibly Engineer.

    Probably won't happen but still hoping for a shotgun-like weapon or maybe skills which operate like one. :)

    Cassian Esper, Settler Path. (Socialite FTW!)
    I too find it weird that Granok don't have the lead in the polls. Defo going to make a Granok alt after I'm done with my posh Cassian. :>

    I'm wondering whether the Mechari can be like clone wars droids :p

    Edit: With the comedy sounding voice, or are all mechari serious?

    Considering the humor Carbine's displayed so far, I'd honestly expect at least a few Mechari not to be the Grumpy McGrumpkins we saw in the Dominion personality trailer. And if they're all super serious, I don't think anyone could stop you from roleplaying a Mechari where someone spilled a cup of coffee over their circuitry while performing repairs or something. :p

    Well the straight man is a comedy staple for a reason.

    Besides running an Empire is serious bussiness.....
