[Wildstar] My Exile Crew
Since I get 12 character slots in Wildstar and there are 6 classes and 2 factions, it seems to make sense to me with my condition (alt-aholism, or alt-itis, depending on which you prefer to call it) to have a character of each class in each faction. I think part of the reason I had trouble with the game on my 1st go at it was that I picked a class that the description sounded like I would love, but then I wasn’t enamored of it and I didn’t try any others to see if I’d like them better, so this time I’ll give each class a shot up to .. I dunno, level 10 or 15 or so and see if I like the feel of it then. With that in mind, I started in on the Exile side since that was what I made last week, so I kept the streak going. I haven’t advanced any farther on the Spellslinger I started last week, just did a flurry of character creation and mostly just took them in far enough to get their weapon and do that 1st mission where you swing it a couple of times in the general direction of some mobs so I could get a feel for if I liked the basic attacks.
I also discovered that that weird “floaty side to side” feel I got from the running animation back in the beta is mostly limited to male character models. Females sorta have it, but it’s in the sway of their hips as they run rather than how the males feel like it’s the whole body. It’s far less pronounced in the shorter Human and Aurin models. As a result, even though I usually have a male or 2 in any given character group… not this time. Mostly short females. Anyway… here’s the list:
And there you have it. So far, nothing about this game screams “play me” and so even though last night was an “I don’t need to play FFXIV” night due to the Esoterics cap, I played that game more than this one. I really only played Wildstar becuz I wanted to make the 6 toons and take screenies of them, more than anything. I’m hopeful that after the F2P conversion and me playing a bit more that I’ll feel a bit more hooked on it. Dunno why I want to like this game so much, even though so far I just don’t actually care, but there it is. Who can divine the reasoning behind the human psyche?
Happy gaming out there!
