Wildstar Leveling: Stalker DPS 1-25

I was originally going to write guides broken up into sections based on the PvP brackets, but now I’m leaning more towards just doing two different versions, which are 1-25 and 26-50. I might change my mind again at some point in the future, but for now that’s the plan moving forward.

In typical Psynister fashion, the the Medic that I was writing about in the previous leveling guide has already been deleted and rerolled, so it will be awhile before I get back to writing about Medic healing. However, since Stalker was my original main class (technically, Engineer was, but I deleted him too), I figured it was time to write about it instead. I also have some friends that have struggled with the Stalker in the teens and twenties, so I wanted to bump this one up in priority to help them out.

This guide will look at which spells to use, how and when to use them, and how to allocate your ability and AMP points to maximize your performance without having to learn a lot of math.

Are you struggling to level in Wildstar?

Since Wildstar launched, I’ve kept a pretty close eye on the #Wildstar hashtag on twitter for information and feedback from the players. One of the trends that I’ve seen since about the third day of launch is that people tend to have trouble leveling up in Wildstar.

I’m not talking about the whole “get to level 14 and get sucked into housing” thing, I’m talking about people who get to level 10 and then stop playing the game because it’s boring. People who get to level 25 and then feel like it’s just too grindy to push forward. People who think that leveling a DPS Medic offers about as much appeal as sawing off your own leg with a rusty butter knife.

In the past, I have taken this kind of feedback as a challenge, to see for myself whether or not those claims are true, and to see if there is a way around it. So I’m putting a call out to you, readers, to tell me the struggles that you’ve personally had with leveling, and I want details. If you’re having trouble with a particular class, level range, zone, or something else in the leveling process then I want to know what it is.

As I said, I’ve seen a lot of these complaints on twitter. But, the nature of twitter’s 140 character limit means I don’t get much detail, so I want to open the blog to this instead.

This isn’t just a place for you to log every complaint you have about Wildstar in general, I’m looking specifically at struggles you’ve had in the leveling process. If you don’t like how today’s hot fix only included three official fixes for 90 minutes of downtime, I don’t care about that crap. But if you’ve struggled with leveling, I want to know about it.

Warlock Leveling: 1-30 Affliction

I’ve done a lot of playing around on low level Warlocks over the last couple of months, and it’s been hard to find one that really felt right in all the ways that low level alts need to in order for me to keep playing them rather than simply deleting them before I really have a chance to see what they have to offer. Having played a Warlock off and on over the last couple of expansions, I was surprised by how much things felt…off at low levels across the different specs. We’ll get into that a bit later on in the article. I did eventually find a spec that really felt right to me, and we’ll discus that as well.

For now, let’s take a look at the Affliction Warlock, what makes them (and their DoT’s) tick, and how you can become a successful soul-sucking, DoT’chucking overlord of death.

Death Knight Leveling: 55-75 Frost DPS

I’d like to tell you that leveling up as a Frost Death Knight is a hard thing to do, but then I would be lying. You see, Frost Death Knights have this thing called a God Complex where they think they can kill whoever they want to without harm or repercussion to themselves, all the loot belongs to them, their DPS is through the roof putting everyone else to shame, and so on. The bad news is, occasionally that will come back to bite you in the butt and score you a trip to the spirit healer. The good news is, that whole God Complex thing started because the majority of it is actually true.

Enough with the intro, let’s take a look at how to go about leveling and playing a Frost Death Knight.

Sage/Sorcerer Leveling: 10-20 Healing

For the first 10 levels of playing a Sage/Sorc healer, you’re no different than any other Consular/Inquisitor out there, so I’m going to refer you to my 1-20 DPS Guide for information about how to level and what spells you get during the 1-10 range if you feel you need it.

This guide is aimed specifically at leveling as a healer which takes place from level 10 on, so that’s where this guide is going to start. I will be discussing how to deal damage in the healing spec, and how to go about questing and so forth, I’m just going to assume that you’re already at least level 10 for the purpose of this specific guide.
