Paths are WildStar's way of adding depth to your character and give you unique content based on the way you like to play. We have four possible paths to choose that will give you a variety of content to do alongside your normal questing which in turn provides you a number of rewards. Picking a path is required at Character Creation; however doing the content is optional. You can’t currently change your path, once selected, it is now a part of who you are.
