Once the body type is selected, it will be the turn to choose the race of our hero. There are 4 different races that players can choose during character creation that not only changes the appearance but it also affects its traits, dialogues, and interactions within the game.



After we have chosen the body type and race, it will be time to define the class type of our character. Classes in The Waylanders determines the playstyle of your hero, choosing a particular class affects the hero's stats, skills, abilities, and starting gear.

In The Waylanders, a player gets to choose 6 basic classes during character customization, however, as players progress through the game, they will be able to further upgrade their hero by following a new path to learning an advanced class or sub-class, there are 30 advanced classes that players can choose later on.
