The Waylanders – Sneak Peek at Advanced Ranger Classes & Pets!

The Waylanders - Sneak Peek at Advanced Ranger Classes & Pets!

Gato Salvaje Studio is here with the July update for the upcoming cRPG The Waylanders that adds quests to unlock all types of pets for the Ranger class as well as introduces tutorials, balancing improvements, and more.

With the latest update, players can add the boar, panther, wolf, and spider to their roster of fuzzy companions and also be introduced to a special quest leading to the most dangerous animal of all, THE RABBIT.

As players progress deeper into The Waylanders, Advanced Classes will become available depending on the player’s class. After Ranger players choose their advanced classes, they’ll gain access to a variety of new animal companions including two dragon types, a dog, a bear, a raven, and a magpie. In the second act of the game, a quest will unlock access to the deer companion.
While Advanced Classes aren’t playable in Early Access, here’s a quick sneak peek at a few of the upgrade paths Rangers will get at launch:
  • Hunter – A reckless ranger who favors heavy point-blank projectiles. The Hunter class combines aspects of the Ranger class with fighter (Warrior and Guardian) abilities, allowing for close-quarters combat.
  • Draconic Master – A magical ranger whose connection to the draconic beasts allows the ranger to tame or become one with them. This class gives rangers abilities inspired by the sages (Sorcerers and Healers) and unlocks dragon pets.
  • Saboteur – A tactical ranger who creates traps and other mischievous entanglements that hinder enemies, giving time to set the perfect shot. The Saboteur takes Rogue tricks and mixes them together with powerful ranged attacks.

Next month’s update brings much-asked for romances to The Waylanders as the team works towards a full release this fall. Stay tuned!
