    I know how to waste my money as well :p  Sadly I never made it to 50 , I got to level 18 and could not stomach this game , I just found the world to be so boring. I was looking forward to some good challenging raiding , but just couldn't do it. 

     

    I should know better then to buy a game in an already built world, I would prefer to play a game where the world gets built by the players.

    Mmm. I certainly hope this list gets longer as they release more content. I dunno if focusing on PvP in the next big content drop is such a good idea as weak and under populated as Wildstar PvP is. I think most of the fans/players would much rather see the addition of a lot more dungeons and raids. The game was supposed to be the king of PvE raiding, and so far it's not even close to the top 10 for raiding games. They really should of worked on more content before release imo, but I'd say still fixing all the bugs with the ui/combat/fps issues is a top priority as well.

     

    They have their work cut out for them, good luck out there Carbine!

    ok- not sure if youve even remotely have played this game- but to get to ' raiding' it takes ALOT!!!! of tasks within the game.  so im like sure  1% have reached endgame raiding and those are uber guilds who have played in beta.

     

    before you talk about raiding and endgame content -do your research or at least play the game -which from the sounds of -you havent.

     

    i believe carbine is taking the game issues in priority order- nobody that is playing thsi game regularly are asking for new raids or more endgame pve content...yet.

    Since everybody is working towards the first raid, I doubt anyone is looking for more raiding content, so no idea where this top 10 thing was made up from. Since virtually no-one is looking for more raids, and many Pvers enjoy battlegrounds, pvp makes perfect sense for a dev pass. More 5 man dungeons would be nice however.

    You misunderstand, I'm not complaining about the content itself which is strong, there just isn't enough of it. There aren't enough dungeons in game, and if they think 2 raids are going to satisfy their end game needs in a few months, I don't think it will.

     

    This is more of a future warning for Carbine, instead of focusing on PvP which is the weakest part of WildStar, they should focus on adding more content in the future.

    It's a good thing then that they're testing another 5-man dungeon and 20-player raid on the PTR at the moment ;)

    Does that include the one just south of Illium?   I'm sick of dying trying to get into that place and would like to see what it's fledged to be since they replaced the giant bubble with the rockwall that currently blocks the way.

    How the heck did you get to level cap in a week? Wildstar doesn't have the super fast leveling of other mmos

    "which involve scouring the planet with a fine toothcomb"

     

    It's fine-toothed comb.....  A comb with small, close-set teeth which is used to remove foreign matter from the hair.  A fine toothcomb would be a fancy comb for your teeth.

    But how would I ensure that the parting of the plaque on my pearly whites is perfect? Just because dentistry is in the dark ages, that's no reason to disregard the distinguished art of enriching enamel with elegant styling.

     

    Or perhaps your pride might be perturbed by a puerile poke at your pedantry, which is probably a plus.

    Guess what douche, you're going to do that again in the next MMO and again in the next.  I think it's a personal problem not the game.  I love you gamer types, stupid idiots basically burn through everything and then leave.  You really love to waste money don't you?

    This article is funny because the endgame is bleh :P

    It needs fleshing out and fixing. May come back sometime in the future.

  • AoriAori Carbondale, ILPosts: 1,886Member Uncommon

    Sadly PvP is all I cared about in WildStar and it is extremely disappointing.  From early beta up to warplots, Bardic was warned it wasn't enough and it was severely lacking. She was so far up her own ass to listen to anyone that wasn't up there as well. 

    I'll never buy the game, granted for a few other reasons as well.

    Agreed too.

    They just need to deliver new content with the same pace and quality as they did in Drop 1. Next Drop is in a few days with many new additions and fixes and its mostly a PvP patch.

    Imho they are doing a great job until now.

    The only viable end game activity in WS is raiding. And for this you ABSOLUTELY need a good, organized guild. It's the only way to go somewhere in this game. PvP is extremely underwhelming and i don't think this can change no matter how many BG's they add. It's not an issue of quantity. 

     

    WS screams "PvE" from miles away, players interested only in serious PvP should look elsewhere imho.

     

    Thing #3 Beat Protostar. I wonder if mister Harmer has actually used the AH. If he did and still thinks that he can trade smart and make platinum out of it then i would appreciate a "how to" post.
