    Racial restrictions are indeed dumb. I haven't heard anything about any specific racial skills since they were still pretty on the fence about that 3 months ago, in which case it would be a balance issue with specific race/class/path combinations in mind. This sounds like purely for the sake of "lol lore" reasons. Which is fine as well,(Would you REALLY want a chua as your medic?) but still.

    Nope. There is no excuse for racial restrictions. Lore should not impede being able to be any combination of race/class/path you want.

    Frankly, the Mechari not being able to be the [REDACTED] class is kind of absurd given that they are mechanical beings. You'd think they'd be naturally inclined towards it as a career.

    What do you mean I'm not suited for this role? Just let me swap out this module with that one and I'm set!

    Just a heads up, the new beta application doesn't ask for a group leader anymore in the group sign up options. The new OP is going to reflect that. I'm actually writing up the new OP now so I'll have it ready by the time we hit the page limit so if you guys want me to include anything specific, now would be a pretty good time to let me know.

    I should probably look into getting access to my NCSoft account again sometime.

    Been trying to reset the password but have never actually gotten the e-mails to do so. Best online technical, NCSoft.

    Did you have any NC Soft games registered that still exist? The last time I tried to log in the page just went "welp, all the games you registered are now dead, make a new account" (City of Heroes, Tabula Rasa, Auto Assault).

    you are either a glutton for punishment or one tough sonovabitch, based on my anecdotal knowledge of those 2 games.

    Guild Wars 1, 2, and Aion. (Sadly, in regards to all three.)

    Going through the GW2 page to reset it requires the serial number, which I don't think I ever got since I bought it digitally from their store.

    EDIT: What the deuce. Went through and tried a bunch of old account names and passwords and got it to work somehow.

    Check the e-mail you purchased with. The code should have been e-mailed to you in some way. Sometimes they're attached to the payment invoice and not direct from the seller.

    Maybe it's some sort of anti-Skynet coding deep in their BIOS? Where robots aren't allowed to build and design other robots.

    Where is the info coming from that's saying Mechari can't be [REDACTED]?

    I can't find it right now, but I'd swear I'd seen a tweet linked on a WildStar fansite forum (not here) that was saying Mechari could be both of the 'secret' classes. If I find it again, I'll check the authenticity of it.

    If true, it's saddening and a little confusing. Just from a race balance perspective, Mechari almost have to be allowed to choose at least one of the two unknown classes. Otherwise they only have two classes available to them.

    Either way, we should know in five or six weeks. (I'm assuming they'll save the reveal of the last two for the end.)

    It might explain why they're desperately looking for those Precursor guys, actually, if they're programmed not to make more of them, or even to repair themselves.

    Or maybe they're philosophically opposed to using other robots as slave? Organic life is fine, as it's inferior.

    *E* in any case it's one of the dumber "this race can't be this class" examples I've seen in a long while, and I played 2nd edition D&D.

    Judging by the fact the Eldan have disappeared, and sent the Mechari out as agents into the wider galaxy for extended periods which would necessitate them periodically repairing themselves without the Eldan's help, AND the state that Nexus is in today with death robots less refined then the Mechari running around, I highly doubt that the Eldan thought that far ahead.

    Don't ask how I know there's race restrictions, because that's subject to change. And also if I told you I'd have to shoot you with my laser cannon.

    Heck, Ahnuld said he has data files on human biology. You know, to better exterminate heal us.

    If the Eldan wanted humans dead, they would have sent the Mechari to kill them, not help them create the Dominion.

    If the Mechari want humans dead, as I'm sure they do most of the time, the Dominion humans have only to point in the direction of those inbred Exile hicks and say "Fire".

    One thing that race/class restrictions provide is a feature for Carbine to insert with great excitement into future expansions and DLC's. "Hey look everybody, Mechari Warlocks !! Woo Hoo !!"

    I have to say, while their humor is appreciated, it doesn't need to be everywhere. It starts to lose it's charm when everything is "super cool!"

    That "level up" think they previewed a little while ago is a great example. That is an oversaturation of style and humor. I don't want that level of ridiculousness happening every time I level. For me, it's not appreciated. That would be a really cool level up animation for the very first level you get. Past that, let's just stick with the traditional and unintrusive "ding".

    And the least derpy.

    Barring a letdown on my Mechari engineer, I will make a Cassian warrior for sure at some point.

    I actually do like that the exile armor fits in with their theme. It all looks like refurbished or cobbled together from stuff they stole/found and held up with duct tape in a sense. Like the Granok example basically found some glowing tubes and was all "Dibs"

    Edit: Also seems the metagames are starting in earnest
