The central setting of Wildstar is the planet Nexus. It is the home world of the Eldan, the highly advanced race who created the Nexus Project. It is through the Nexus Project that the being Genesis Prime was born. Later named Drusera, she would later be revealed to have an evil secondary personality called the Entity that would later drive the Eldan to extinction. But before it happened, the Eldan had sown the seeds of two factions: the Exiles and the Dominion.
Players enter the world as a member of one of these two warring factions on Nexus. Choosing the Exile faction lets players select either the Human, Granok, Aurin, and Mordesh race. If the player chooses the Dominion faction, they can choose from the Cassian, Draken, Mechari, and Chua races. The choice of race, however, has no effect on performance, other than appearances and which classes are available.
Wildstar has six classes: Warrior, Stalker, Esper, Medic, Spellsinger, and Engineer. However, not every class can be chosen by every race, with the exception being Humans and Cassians. Characters can also choose different Paths, such as Explorer, Scientist, Settler, and Soldier. The Paths are not limited by Race or Class in Wildstar, and have different abilities, missions, and rewards.
