My Brief Summer Fling With Wildstar

All in all I like Wildstar. It has a nice combat system, the double jumps are awesome, all my characters look really cool and there’s that nice sort of “Firefly feeling” to it.

The quest system is one of the things I like the best. You get to use a comunicator to turn in quests and get followup quests while you are out and about. And if you have a hard time finding the things you are looking for, you can get an arrow to show you where to go and how far away it is. So questing has a nice flow to it.

WhereImGoingI also love the concept of paths. It’s something I hope to see in more games in the future. It gives an extra dimension to the character based on what you like to do as a player. The settler path was a clear choice for me. But I’ve also had fun exploring on one of my characters and killing stuff together with the hubby’s soldier.

ElderrootAnd there’s this huge nature-troll-ish mobs you encounter while questing in Celestion, I really liked them. Especially the part where you get to ride on the back of one of them.

There are just so many things happening all at once; flashing graphics and lots of sounds.

But if you don’t mind that part I think it’s a great leveling experience. And it’s fun to play both solo and with friends.

    My max toon is/was 14. I feel bad saying this, but I would love all that content as a WoW-expansion instead of a new game. I feel bad about saying that, cause I -want- the game to succeed! It’s really cool and sweet and have neat ideas. My problems with it are
    1) I think I only have room in me for one MMO. I prefer my other games to be short and/or sweet and/or on consol and/or on phone.
    2) I can’t deal with the graphics. To me it seems everything disappears too much into the background. Can’t really explain it better, sorry.
    3) The first month after launch, I haven’t been physically able to sit down and play it, which ofc doesn’t help at all. xD
    At least I have bought it, and I really really hope it survives, so that the people looking for this kind of game has a choice, and also so that the other MMO’s have another contributer to the idea-mix. :)

      I do play other MMOs, atm I have 3 in the mix (2 with subs and one F2P). Had I enjoyed Wildstar more I would have probably dumped one of the other MMOs with subs.

      But yeah, I bought it and I subed for a month. So just like you I really do hope it survives as well. :)
