In Wildstar there are many ways to explore content, and Paths are one of these ways.

Hoverboard upgrades! Hover. Freaking. Boards.

There Can Be Only One

There are four to choose from, let them complement your playstyle!

Do want to be an Explorer; discovering majestic vista, uncovering long lost relics, and discovering secret trails! Maybe you’ll go the route of a Scientist; using holograms to distract your enemies, scanbots to… scan, and creating portals to the capital city of your faction! Then there is the Settler; create buff stations for your allies, build arenas, hospitals, and setup a vendbot so you allies can sell all the junk they found on enemy corpses! Lastly, mainly due to alphabetical reasons, there is the Soldier; they can create weapon lockers, advanced hardware, they have the ability to freeze in midair, and start unique world events!

Now, even though each Path brings a lot of unique features and abilities, they also have shared items. These are such things are bags to increase your inventory space, costumes to dress up all fancy in, and my personal favourite… hoverboard upgrades! Hover. Freaking. Board.

You level your Path up with experience points, just like level from one to fifty, however you gain these from missions you find within each area you visit. There thirty ranks to be achieved. These can be achieved from discovering parts of the map, rebuilding a broken down town, or starting a local enemy wave event. No, not an event where you /wave at monsters, one where you get waves of enemies who want to kill you. Dead.
