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.

Guide to Walatiki Temple

Walatiki Temple is the first battleground, or Practice Ground, that you get access to in Wildstar. It becomes available for play at level 6, with the first bracket being levels 6-14, the second 15-29, then 30-49, and finally level 50. Walatiki Temple is a 10 v 10 matchup against the opposing faction. Each match lasts for 30 minutes, or until a team manages to capture 5 masks.

In this guide, I want to teach you the basics of this map and give you an idea of what PvP feels like in Wildstar. I will talk about some of the basics of strategy, but I don’t plan to go into too much detail beyond which methods of capturing the masks are best for which situation, and how things like guarding your masks is important.

I will cover the different parts of the map, how to utilize them, where to find the buffs, different routes to take for capturing the flag, timers for respawning after death, timers for masks to spawn or despawn, and some basic strategies for playing the game.

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.

Wildstar Leveling: Medic Healer 1-14

I’ve been in the mood to blog again lately, but didn’t really feel any particular game calling my name to write a guide. I wrote my Hearthstone Guide mostly out of my desire to write something. But, as this week was the release of Wildstar, and my wife decided she wanted to get back into gaming, we jumped right in. As always, that meant it was time to roll tons of characters to experience all of the different classes, and so far I enjoy it quite a bit.

As I’ve been neck deep in Wildstar PvP the last couple of days, it got me interested in looking up guides on some of the other classes to see which class I might want to try out next, and that’s when I noticed that guide writers haven’t changed much from when I first got into WoW several years ago. People still tend to write guides directly solely at max level, with little to no attention paid to helping people get there in the first place. Telling people how to play as a healer at level 50 is great for end game and all, but how are those people supposed to heal on the way to level 50, before all of those spells, AMPs, and equipment become available? That’s what I aim to tell you.

In this first installment of the Medic Healer, I’m going to help you figure out how to be the best little medic healer you can be up to level 14. At that point you’re likely to get sucked into Housing for so long that you’ll forget how to play your character by the time you’re finished, and you’ll need to come read this again to remind yourself. And by that time, I just might have the level 15-30 guide ready to help you along for the rest of it.
