1.7.2 Arrives June 7!

Introducing Prime Raids!



Expanding on the range of difficulty settings added to dungeons and Expeditions with the Power of the Primal Matrix update earlier this year, 1.7.2 introduces Prime Raids beginning with Y-83 Prime Level 1! If you enjoy raiding and want better incentives to return to previous raid tiers, this system is built for you. Likewise, if you’re looking for a method to keep a consistent raid schedule while ensuring that you continue to grow your character’s power at max-level, Prime Raids offer you this opportunity.

Y-83 Prime Level 1



Prime difficulty in raids will function quite a bit differently compared to other Prime instances. For example, Prime Level 1 is relatively uniform in the challenges and rewards presented across all dungeons; whereas Prime Raids will more closely mirror existing raid progression and offer an extension—that increases with each raid and Prime Level—beyond the challenges and rewards of their normal difficulty counterparts.

Y-83 Prime Level 1 is the first tier of extended raid progression following Redmoon Terror, and is intended to best suit coordinated groups that have completed all existing raids and are geared accordingly. Following 1.7.2, each raid dungeon will be released in separate game updates at Prime Level 1, adding another step up in difficulty and gear power. Once all raid dungeons have been made available at Prime Level 1, the system will continue the progression pattern at Prime Level 2, and so on.

Y-83 Prime Hard Mode and Lockouts



It’s important to note that Prime Raids scale enemy health and damage by a percentage above the existing version of the dungeon. Given that Y-83 has a Hard Mode modifier that can be applied in combat to buff boss health and damage, as well as enable additional encounter mechanics, groups that enter the dungeon at Prime Level 1 will still have the option to further increase the difficulty by activating Hard Mode. This effectively means Y-83 has four distinct difficulties with the inclusion of the Prime setting—normal, Prime Level 1, Hard Mode, and Prime Level 1 Hard Mode.

In addition, each Prime Raid has a unique lockout per Prime Level, which in 1.7.2 gives you the choice of clearing the existing version of Y-83 (normal or Hard Mode), as well as Prime Level 1 (normal or Hard Mode) between each instance lockout reset.

Progenitor Access Particles: Emphasizing the Access

To ease some of the burden players have experienced while hunting Progenitor Access Particles, they now have a rare chance to drop throughout Prime Dungeons, during Arcterra five-player encounters, and in World Boss and Arcterra Boss loot bags. In addition, the chance to obtain a Progenitor Access Particle has increased slightly at the end of Prime Dungeons and when turning in Tier-2 Contracts.

DevConnect: June Preview



Hello all!
 
In an effort to keep DevConnect topics coming out at regular intervals and ensure that the subject matter is relevant to the community, we’re changing up the scope of the series. Going forward, DevConnect topics will serve as monthly previews, giving players an opportunity to glimpse what we have planned on the horizon for the following month. We encourage all of you to continue using these topics to provide your feedback on our monthly calendar, or anything you feel we’re missing that needs to be addressed.
 
We hope you’ll find this DevConnect format more useful and certainly a more consistent, reliable communication channel. With that said, here’s a look at what should be on everyone’s radar for June.

It’s WildStar’s third birthday! To commemorate the occasion, the Starfall Anniversary Celebration starts June 1 and runs through June 30, featuring four week-long events and free login rewards throughout the month! View full details in the Starfall preview article.

PTR Test Schedule
Keep an eye out for the return of Communities to the PTR in early June. We’re making some updates to the feature based on feedback we’ve received thus far and look forward to additional player testing.

Livestreams
  • WildStar 3rd Anniversary Celebration Stream: Date TBD
    • If you’re not careful this just might become a reality again (perhaps even with another cupcake to Pappy’s face?).
  • Double XP X-Plosion Dev Plays: Friday, June 24
    • With the X-Plosion circling around again during Starfall, Pappy and Conguero will seek to continue their leveling adventures and create a guild for the faithful among you to join.
Store Items
Be on the lookout for the following items, and likely much more, hitting the In-Game Store in June.
  • Summer Hoverboard
  • Summer Décor Pack
  • Surfboard Sampler Décor Pack
  • Sandcastle Décor Pack
The Future of Events & Chases
As we announced on livestream last Friday, May 26, we’re planning to update some of our in-game events and how they’re run in the future. A lot of players have been asking about Chase events and awaiting info from us, so before we make any event changes, we’re going to be running all Chases one last time beginning in July. We’ll have more details on the upcoming event changes to share in the last week of June, as well as the July schedule of Chase events.

More to Come!
We truly hope you enjoy Starfall and will join us in celebrating WildStar’s third birthday! This game has seen much diversity since launch, and it’s our pleasure to have such a passionate and dedicated community. Please let us know what you think of this new DevConnect format and any of the topics listed above.
 
Cheers,
 
Team WildStar
