Equipped with a heavy battle suit, and armed with a giant tech-sword and a plasma blasting arm cannon, Warriors use hyper-charged kinetic cells which allow the use of powerful attacks and greatly improve their destructive potential.
Drawing upon the power of these kinetic cells give Warriors access to a wide array of strategic technological capabilities designed to damage, disarm, or incapacitate their enemies. In short, the Warrior is a walking death machine, absorbing impressive amounts of damage while dispatching his foes by the dozens.
Available Warrior Races
- Role: Melee DPS, Tank
- Equipment: Tech Sword
- Armor Weight: Medium Armor (Upgrades to Heavy)
- Ability Resources: Kinetic Cells
- Primary Attribute: Brutality (DPS), Tech (Tank)
WildStar Warrior Combat Mechanics
During the fight Warrior has several abilities that power up kinetic cells, which can be used to dispatch more powerful attacks. Warrior can use kinetic cells either for offense or defense, and each special spell can be used with consumption of 1, 2 or 3 kinetic cells. Ability strength depends of the number of the used kinetic cells, thus, if you use an ability with one kinetic cell it will have smaller impact in battle, while with two or three kinetic cells your offense or defense are considerably stronger.
