WildStar enters the second phase of free-to-play testing with real money, explains Runecrafting changes

The first stage of testing for WildStar‘s free-to-play conversion has been a success on the whole. Sure, there have been aspects that veterans didn’t like, such as the Sprint changes (which are being altered anyhow, allowing players to turn off the always-sprinting option), but the majority of the changes have been well received. So now it’s time to move on to the second stage, and that means that the game needs you to spend cold hard cash.

The second stage of testing will be removing all automatically granted NCoins and will award the player only NCoins that have actually been purchased. Lest you worry about spending coin on something that’s about to be wiped post-testing, there will be “test” NCoins added to the beta servers while the “real” NCoins remain in your account to spend on other NCsoft games or on WildStar once it finishes its free-to-play conversion. Check out the full rundown for all the goals of the second phase of testing.

WildStar also released a deep-dive into the impending Runecrafting system overhaul this morning. “We focused on making it more accessible to new players, less painful for veterans, and just more fun in general,” Carbine’s Marc “Tongbei” Chang writes.

Belcross You still can. Just most of it you have to either use a Modifier key or hit a checkbox to make it movable.

I remember being able to move the UI around how I saw fit, logged into the F2P beta and was surprised I couldnt.

Bluetouchpaper  There aren’t, they have already detailed the F2P model pretty extensively. Check out the FAQ:

I am hoping the free to play will be similar to that of Rift . I don’t mind spending money in an mmo but if there are paywalls in a free to play game it puts me off no end .

Infraction Well I guess that just leaves you with FF14 ,EVE and WoW and a handful of niche games that are struggling for a decent population then . Good luck with that .
