In Wildstar, besides the race and the class, you have to choose a path for your character. The path enables you to complete additional quests connected with what you like to do. Moreover, gaining higher levels in your path provides special skills.
If you enjoy exploring the whole of the map and wandering around ancient ruins or forgotten caves, you should choose this path. During some quests you will climb huge trees, explore deep caves inhabited by dangerous monsters, seek for long forgotten artefacts or draw maps for your faction. Sometimes you will be a spy, putting cameras all over a place, tracking animals or people.
Explorer’s Safe Fall– The damage from falls is reduced for some time.
Air Brakes– Stops you mid-air, letting you enjoy the view and perform another jump.
Translocate beacon – Saves your current location and after using again, teleports you back to it. Cannot be used in PVP.
This path should be chosen by those that have the time to study interesting phenomena. To run an experiment, you will usually need a Scanbot. You can summon it by using the option “Scan” on a given item. The quests tell you what you have to examine.

This is a path for those who like to gather resources, to later build constructions that will be helpful to others. It provides quests consisting of gathering materials for someone, as well as constructing buff-providing machines, mailboxes or vendors. All this should be done in specially marked places.
