PSA: WildStar is giving out free level 50 characters in preparation for next week’s raid

Time to skip over all of that meaty, pesky leveling content and enjoy an express pass to the endgame in WildStar… if that is your desire, of course. Carbine announced that it is once again giving out free level 50 characters to anyone who claims them by November 5th by logging into the game.

There is a big caveat here, which is that if you took advantage of this boost the last time WildStar did a giveaway, you can’t get another one this time around. The boost comes with a load of freebies, including gear, a mount, a housing teleport, path rewards, and a port to your faction’s capital city.

There is a sinister and devious reason behind Carbine’s attempt to shoo everyone to level 50, which is that WildStar is dropping a major content update next week. The update will raise the prime level cap on instances to 15 and open up the Genetic Archives Prime Level 1 raid. OK, maybe not so sinister or devious.

The main problem with this game was it forced you to download an amazon app that probably just wanted to browse your search history instead of launching on steam

I took advantage of the previous freebie…when i got the email about this i thought i could get a second level 50 since it didnt mention that caveat. Oh well, with all the other mmos going nutty on content I’ve been struggling to log on to Wildstar beyond the house deco. Ugh, i need to retire and play fulltime.

Let’s time a promotion during one of the worst possible competitive weeks for gaming in the entire year, surely it will go well for us!

Seriously, I swear someone at Carbine is actively timing their announcements/content updates/promotions to go out at the worst possible times. Like, it’s on purpose, there’s no other way they can so consistently time everything so terribly.

Maybe they see themselves as one of those active competitors that’s in the catbird seat so they feel confident that they can put it out in the thick of battle for subs/dollars?

Not saying that’s reality, but confidence goes a long way sometimes.

This is the kind of promo I tend to skip. I don’t usually enjoy playing characters I didn’t manually level up myself.

The best part of WS is the leveling experience, seems kind of silly to give players characters that skip that. It didn’t work last time, probably won’t work again.

What? The best part of WS is the raiding.

The leveling experience is cool but it takes forever and it’s largely a solo experience. I like the boost because it means I can have a lvl 50 character for the real group content while I take my time with the leveling experience on the side with another character. I like the best of both worlds and they’re giving it to me.

If 3-4h of spamming “random normal” dungeons during common Double XP events, or 6-10h outside those event counts as “forever”, then yes.

Reader

They must have dramatically increased the rewards from dungeons because when I last played, they were pretty terrible for leveling like that.

What’s max level in WS? That’s a pretty cool promotion imo.

Reader
Coldin Torrence

Max level is 50. Though you can also advance your primal matrix beyond that.

Reader
Armsbend

Awesome. I think I’ll take part then. Thanks for the response!

It’s really fun to play. Wish more would give it a shot

Lopp a playable race yet?

Most people already spend their game time looking for shinies. Might as well make if official.

Going to pass on this opportunity. Last time they did this type of give away I didn’t play very much before uninstalling. I doubt much has changed from now and then.

Any good guides that can be recommended to get your bearings of everything you can do at endlevel, aside pure raiding, if somebody new would choose to get that lvl 50 boost?

Like for instance, a comprehensible list of where everywhere you are able to collect housing parts?

Reader

This will actually get me to log back into the game. I never got to max level because the leveling process was so laborious. The environments are cool, the music is amazing, but it feels like you do a thousand quests and you’re not even halfway to level cap yet. With my first character in an MMO, I usually want to rush to level cap to start that progression climb. I go back and take my time with alternate characters. Wildstar’s leveling pace is too sluggish to rush. Or at least it was the last time I played. The boost will help with that.

Wow, a free level 50? Might be worth a look. Haven’t spent any time in there in months.

They sound a bit desperate, don’t they?

Reader
Armsbend

Desperate or not – it’s a strong promo. I give them credit for trying.

Reader

Does still have the atrocious raid keying grind though?

Reader
Bruno Brito

No.

Not sure. But, I’ll go in, take a quick look and… take my 50 and run!
