As part of our continuing hands on look at Carbine's WildStar, we spent some time with a Mechari Warrior during last weekend's New York Comic Con. It's a great preview. Check it out and then let us know what you think in the comments.
For my time at NYCC I chose the Mechari race. I just liked the mechanical look and wanted to play them ever since their announcement a few months back. With limited time on the demo, I chose to randomize my appearance and get started right away. As I entered the world of Nexus the first thing that stood out was the massive power sword. Hopefully Carbine Studios will allow players some customization on this weapon as your level up. It looked great, but orange is not my color. The next thing that stood out was the movement of the Mechari. They seemed to be much slower and more mechanical. David Bass, the Community Manager at Carbine quickly said that they move at the same speed as the Draken and all the other races. The animations are changed to give the Mechari their brooding robotic movement. This illusion made sense and once in combat I found that the Warriors are quick killers.
