Happy HuMp DAY! Hope your week is going well.
Wildstar had a stream yesterday and had some updates about the attunement process among other things. If you haven’t gotten to that stage in your Wildstar adventure it is a long process that lets you begin to run the 20 man dungeon. When you run the 20 man dungeons, you’re then working on your attunement for the 40 man dungeon (by collecting tokens).
They have decided that while the attunement worked for the most part (cough) there have been some parts of it that kept more people than expected from experiencing the raids.
No more need to get a silver in dungeons. You will now be able to get a bronze run and you’ll pass the attunement test.
Also you’ll need to collect less tokens than before from 300 to 100.
There has been some crying and wailing after this announcement, personally I think it is fine, hopefully this will bring more people back into the game (both new and folks that have quit in the past).
Some details about this announcement can be found here –
A good review of all the questions and answers – http://www.reddit.com/r/WildStar/comments/2dcw47/upcoming_runeattunement_system_revamp_itemization/
One other note, they’ll be change the way that runes are in gear (and you will have the ability to change them).
Here is a video replay of the Nexus report – http://www.twitch.tv/wildstar/b/557396007
I’m still playing and also enjoying myself. One thing I love is PVP, so PVP at 50 is now pretty much dead, I hope they will find out some way to revive it. I have some ideas, maybe I should share them. So I have started over (again), this will be my 3rd 50 and as is my policy, since I like to make it harder on myself and also want to play on a server that has more than five people on at a time in the capital city. I have made a new engineer on the most active non pvp server. I think this time I’m going to level exclusively by PVPing, except I also want to do some crafting (as I go) – money will be hard to come by this time, since they increased the drop rates of most of the things that sale for any money, but I’ve already made it to level 14 so we’ll see how it goes, I LOVE PVP.
Enjoy your day, tell your friends if they left Wildstar because of the attunement.
