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.
