FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions

   Expand All    Collapse All

What is the difference between a class and a path?

Picking a Class is choosing the way you like to fight. Are you a gunslinger, a squishy healer, or meatshield? Picking your Path is choosing your playstyle. Do you like to explore dangerous places, kill enemies, or study things? Make a choice, and we'll make sure you get lots of what you like.

Is there a difference between Path content and other kinds of content?

Path content is specially designed to support particular playstyles. Are you a lorehound? Sure, everyone gets to learn some lore in WildStar, but the Scientist really gets to dig in to the nitty-gritty. Maybe building and socializing is your bag? Then choose a Settler, and construct unique objects and buildings for your buddies on Nexus.

Do I get credit for joining in other players' path missions?

Yes. We call it "Crossing Paths", and you get rewards for doing it. So get out there and lend a helping hand!

What happens if I skip Path quests and Path content?

Nothing. Path content is not required in order to level. That being said, you'll be missing out on some of the coolest content in the game. We wouldn't recommend it.

Why should I give a damn about Paths? Do I get stuff?

All kinds of stuff! As you level your Path throughout the game, you get special abilities, loot, costumes and cash. Sounds pretty awesome, right? It is.

Can I respec my Path?

Currently? No. Like your Class, your Path is a permanent and defining aspect of your character. But you can always roll an alt or two!

How did you come up with these Paths?

Have you heard of Bartle types? Our Paths are loosely based on those. But mainly we just looked at the ways players play MMOs, and designed cool content around them.

I like killing, exploring, lore and building! Why can't I do all of them?

You can and will! Standard quest content will contain little bits of all of them. Don't worry! We've got you covered.
