    In both the "What is Wildstar" and "Exiles" videos we see a Granok with a big rifle having his version of fun. So which class is he? The only firearms I've seen so far are spell-slingers and they just have a pair of pistols.

    Probably the Engineer class. If Carbine pulls a fast one on us, and the Medics get it, I will be interested.

    I can see the logic in that, if the medic is for hire. It would be like a baseball company selling window panes. Do the damage then get paid to fix it.

    ETA, also the guy in the video didn't look like the medic nor engineer type. Are we so sure those two are the next classes?

    Not officially announced yet, and it could all change, but yeah, we're all banking on Engineer and Medic being the last two.

    I think the rifle wielding Granok in the video could just be an NPC or just something they threw together for the trailer. And I think most people are pretty sure on the Medic and Engineer classes based on this: http://i.imgur.com/6PQwiMK.jpg

    We actually saw two player characters with the shock paddles and the rifle in DevSpeak: Ability Mechanics. They were at the very last frame, off to the sides.

    Yeah, those are most likely the medic and engineer classes for sure, I was speaking specifically about the Granok in the video the OP (and the guy I quoted) was talking about, which was released before the leak and the video you mention.

    Flying Zombies?! I'm scared!

    Actually, I never thought about it until now, but that's so possible. The shield defib things we've seen could easily go to an engineer.

    The more you think about, the more it actually makes sense. :D

    He doesn't necessarily have to be an Engineer. For all we know, there could be rifle wielding NPCs that act as your generic guard mooks.

    If medics got the rifles, then I'd be f***ed.

    Esper main is all but confirmed at that point.

    Rifle fits the engineer better though IMO. If we wanted to simulate RL all classes would be pistol/rifle wielders including medics.

    So most and possibly all of the rifle toting characters we've seen have been NPC's or what I assume are NPC's. While the medics getting the 'shock paddles' is only a thing because in previous threads about the possible final two classes the community has pretty much came to the thought that the final two classes are Melee healer (have two ranged healer classes already) and ranged tank (two melee tank classes already.)

    If the community is wrong in their assumptions (which isn't out the the question) then we might have no idea what weapon the Engineer has, hell we still don't have a name for the 'revealed' weapon.

    We do have screenshots somewhere showing one of the player weapons being the rifle though. It's a real thing.

    like this? actually I did find a really low quality screen shot involving a Chua talking with someone with the pop up text "Welcome to the Great Hunt, Chua" but like with the medic weapon there's on this one model on player races, I remember seeing a blunderbuss on an NPC race.
