Gamers who typically play casters in MMOs (hi!) will be pleased to see these screenshots of the Esper, the newest class reveal for the upcoming MMO WildStar. You can see them doing their thing in the gallery below, and it looks like a heavy emphasis is put on magic cutlery for their auto-attacks.
WildStar will employ a rather interesting MMO payment model, where you can either pay a monthly fee of $15, or buy "C.R.E.D.D." [game time] with in-game gold. As many know, I'm a fan of the subscription model if the game can deliver enough content to make the price worth it -- and I hope that's the case here.
WildStar is on course for an early 2014 release. I will be playing it, so expect plenty of coverage going forward.
