How to understand for DPS and TANK Classes in Wildstar Halls of the Bloodsworn

Halls of the Bloodsworn is a 10v10 PvP map in Wildstar. Most of players are keen on challenging this PvP map, so we are glad to share the experience of DPS and TANK classes in Halls of the Bloodsworn. Before we enter into this map, we should prepare two necessaries.

1. To practice more in Practice Grounds,
2.To prepare a whole LV. 50 PvP blue suit. It is the basic necessary in battleground!


DPS Classes in Halls of the Bloodsworn 
Warrior is very aggressive type of DPS class which has high explosive damage. If you enter into this battleground to use Rampage without great PvP equipments, you would feel frustrated. The Warrior would better focus on the light armor class or the healer, as you know, the high damage means week viability. Therefore, you need the powerful Healer to match with you.

Spellslinger, almost every player would choose DPS Spellslinger although it need your smart operation. The characteristic of Spellslinger is long-distance attack and high damage. The Flash Freeze which prevents movement for 4s, and the Assassinate can deal amazing physical damage to a foe. As for my personal experience, i think Spellslinger need to speed lots of time on Practice Grounds.

Stalker: Please choose Tether Mine, or else nobody would be afraid of you. The behind or in stealth damage of Impale is very high, even though the Tank can’t bear it.While, the disadvantage is that only for 1 foe, the ability in group fight is feeble.

Engineer: The DOT of Engineer is incredible, it is a good forward. Especially, you should pay attention Electrocute which has a slender electricity, it has high damage and long distance. If you are a DPS Engineer, you should choose some attributes to increase viability.

TANK Classes in Halls of the Bloodsworn 
Engineer: It is the most common Tank in Wildstar, which has various assistance skills. Such as, Unstable Anomaly,Unsteady Miasma,Particle Ejector,Cook Red,Obstruct Vision and so on.We can adjust the skill build in according with the opponents’ skills.If you play as a main Tank, it has high resistance and endurance, but the weakness is the poor movement ability.

Warrior: There is less people play as Tank Warrior due to the powerless attack. While,the skill of Grapple, Power Link and Defense Grid,Flash Bang are great. The DPS warrior sometimes can play as TANK Warrior as well,because the high damage are easy to output. As for now, the specific Tank Warrior is less. So, to choose Warrior as the vice-Tank would be good choice!

Wildstar Raiding

Wildstar Raiding Guide: Experiment X-89 in Genetic Archives

wildstar raid

WildStar wants to have its raids be big. Big in size. Big in rewards. Big in engagement. Big in lots of ways, in short.Then how your raid group beats “Experiment X-89” in the 20 man raid Genetic Archives,here is a quick guide for you!

wildstar raid

Experiment X-89 will most likely be the first boss you do in Genetic Archives and is one of the easiest fights in the raid (some trash and mini bosses are harder). Even though Experiment X-89 is one of the easier bosses I still think a lot of groups are going to wipe on him.

wildstar raid

The fight is a heavy DPS with mechanics that you have to pay attention to. If someone messes up on a big bomb (Strain Bomb) it will probably be a wipe. Small bombs (Corruption Globule) need to be placed strategically or you won’t have enough platforms to kill the boss.

How does the Telegraphs system work in WildStar

Telegraphs are one of the primary combat systems featured in WildStar. Telegraphs are a colored area on the ground that indicates where an effect or ability is going to happen shortly. Telegraphs come in a wide array of shapes, sizes, and effects, and will be a pertinent part of the WildStar combat. Learning to avoid and capitalize on telegraphs will be an essential part of every aspect of the game’s combat, from PvE to PvP.

Telegraphs also come in a number of different colors that indicate their purpose to the viewing player.Telegraph Color Indication:

Player Attack- The player’s personal telegraphs. What you the player are doing
Enemy Attacks- Things that should be avoided, whether they be damage, CC, or debuffs.
Friendly Heal- Buffs, heals, or other beneficial, friendly effects.
Enemy Heal- Same as Friendly Heal, but applies to enemy units, not the player.

Glory and honor in the halls of the bloodsworn

We’ve already talked about one of our PvP Battlegrounds, Walatiki Temple, and Arenas in previous community articles but we wanted to finish the set! Prepare yourselves for…
halls
Halls of the Bloodsworn!
Long ago, the mighty Osun tested their most powerful warriors within the legendary Halls of the Bloodsworn, and now brave heroes of the Dominion and the Exiles will be tested here as well. This ancient fortress consists of a series of rooms designed to prove the strength and prowess of two competing teams – setting them against each other in trials of strategy and brutal combat. Those who most quickly complete these trials are granted glory and honor. For the defeated? Not so much.

Halls of the Bloodsworn is a deadly race against the clock, with two teams battling it out across three trials to try and capture control nodes and prove themselves as the strongest to win fame and glory!

For each round, one team will be selected as the attacking team while the other plays the defending team. The attacking team needs to fill a capture meter for each room, which they can achieve by capturing control nodes set on either side of the room and a central point. Capturing one node will begin to fill the bar slowly, two nodes will fill it much faster and controlling both control nodes and the central point will make it fill up extremely quickly.

Once the attacking team fills the capture meter to 100%, the defenders are pushed back to the next room and the process begins again until all three rooms have been cleared or the time limit is reached . If the time limit is reached, then victory will be determined by the team who captured the most rooms, or who captured the rooms in the fastest time. What happens if both teams capture the same amount of rooms in the same amount of time; naturally the universe implodes! Once the first round is complete, the teams are switched and the previously defending team gets a chance to attack!
halls

That’s the basic premise, but there’s a lot of exciting stuff going on in Halls of the Bloodsworn. You have a number of jump-pads set around each room and the play-space is built around multiple levels, making mobility a key feature. Canny players can also make use of some class abilities to jump between the two control points to quickly attack or defend them as necessary.

The attacking team has the advantage in each game, not only do they gain a gradual Assault & Support power buff throughout each match but capturing either control point will also give a static damage mitigation or health regeneration buff.

Of course you’ll be able to gain experience, loot (gold and items!) and Prestige (our PvP currency) for playing in Battlegrounds and there are Rated versions available for players with a more competitive mindset.

Walatiki Temple and Halls of the Bloodsworn will be our two Battlegrounds available on launch, but who knows what our PvP team will think of next…

We’d normally go and bother them to tell us, but we wouldn’t want to Sabotage what they’re working on.

UPDATE: The initial publication of this article mentioned that the attacking team has a faster respawn timer than the defending team. This was inaccurate: Both teams share an equal respawn timer. The article’s been amended to reflect the change.

wildstar arena

WildStar Arenas: Enter the slaughterdome

For those unfamiliar with the concept, Arenas are the peak of small-team competitive PvP. Grab a team of 2, 3, or 5 players and fight against equally matched opponents to determine who’s the best at
wildstar arena
The Slaughterdome

The Slaughterdome is an infamous Marauder fighting arena, where the toughest individuals in the galaxy come to prove their skills and test their mettle. Surrounded by metal fences and barbed wire, this perilous pit is bristling with concrete walls and other obstacles that turn every match into a blood-soaked battle royale! Frequented by some of the vilest criminals and shadiest gamblers this side of the Fringe, the Slaughterdome is the perfect place for some old-fashioned carnage – just make sure that you’re on the winning team!

WildStar Arena matches consist of two teams with shared respawn pools. Teams start with a certain number of lives, and each time a team member respawns the shared pool decreases by one. This makes for extremely tense matches, especially as they near their end. Does the other team have a tank who’s more annoying than dangerous? Ignore him and repeatedly kill the healer until the team’s out of lives, then take your time with the tank. Down for the count with 1 shared respawn left? Maybe you should stay down so your team’s top damage dealer can use the final respawn for a last stand.

However you choose to play it, Arena matches are fun, rewarding, and the best way to show off your individual skills.

Ratings: Hot or Not?

As everyone knows by now, the balance in this game is perfect. But how do you sort the good teams from the bad? Arena teams are assigned a rating based on their performance in matches. Win more matches, watch your rating increase. Lose matches, and it gets dropped like it’s lukewarm. (For the Esports-savvy, our system is indeed Elo-based.) This ensures that your team is always matched with a team of equivalent ratings, giving you the best possible match-up for your team’s skillset.

Show me the rewards!

In WildStar, Arena-rated PvP gear has rating requirements attached to them, ensuring that you prove your skills before being able to purchase a specific piece of gear. This also means that as you improve your rating, you’ll face off against opponents with similar gear, keeping the matches as close as possible throughout your Arena trials and tribulations.
