WHAT: WildStar + Raiding
WildStar is a fantasy/sci-fi MMO that takes place on the fictional planet Nexus, where a mysterious and powerful race known as the Eldan has disappeared leaving behind a wealth of technology and secrets for players to explore. Check out the official trailer:
Yes, we’re planning to raid in WildStar because it’s that awesome. They’re bringing back hardcore raiding…think back to our WoW raiding days when we all had to get keyed for Mount Hyjal and Black Temple. We love the idea of attunements in WildStar because it brings back the team challenges we’ve been missing and overcoming them will give us a sense of pride while allowing us to experience things other guilds will never get to see.
With raiding comes recruiting, so you’ll probably start to see some new names popping up in the not-so-distant future. We’ll be looking for well-rounded recruits for both raiding and non-raiding activities. Have a friend, co-worker or 2nd-cousin-once-removed that might be interested in joining Verity? Don’t forget about our “Friends + Family” policy so your friends can join us with an auto-invite. (They’re still subject to our 30-day trial period.)
WHO: Verity Members + Friends
Over the last several months already more than a dozen Verity members have enjoyed WildStar closed and open betas and are now jonesing for head start this weekend. Folks, this game is soooo addictive, and for many reasons… here are some of our favorite reasons why:
There are 6 classes of which 3 can be DPS/Tank (Warrior, Engineer and Stalker) and the other 3 are DPS/Healer (Esper, Spellslinger and Medic).
Choose from among four unique Paths, each of them designed for your personal playstyle. The class you choose determines the way you fight while a path determines your playstyle.
Each faction has unique and awesome races (rock people, robots, hamsters…). We’re going Exiles (underdogs) at release; meet them below:
WildStar combat is reminiscent of a FPS because not only are you moving around while meleeing and casting, you have to aim your offensive and defensive skills using telegraphs. This makes PvP OMG. Ask any Verity member about WildStar PvP in beta, but be prepared to hear them gush. Below is a video that explains the combat telegraphs:
Warplots are massive 40v40 battlegrounds, accessible to all players once they hit level 50. Each team starts with a fortress that they can upgrade and customize. Warplots are a seamless blend of life’s two greatest pleasures: Property ownership and loser ownership.
Some of us have waited forever and a day for awesome player housing. Now it’s here:
You can customize pretty much anything. You can skin and dye your gear, add flair to your outfit and even your mount. Playing a light armor class? You can skin your armor with a heavy armor skin. The mounts in WildStar include hoverboards and hamster balls.
Hardcore raiding is back. Here’s an entire page devoted to raiding, bosses and environments. Below is an informative video on raiding, so be sure to check it:
DUNGEONS & ADVENTURES
Raiding and dungeons and adventures, oh my! Dungeons offer varying levels of difficulty and “Adventures are all about open zones, choosing your path through the storyline and exploring unusual gameplay mechanics you don’t find in your normal leveling experience.”
WHEN: May 30 or June 3, 2014
If you pre-order you can begin playing in the head start at midnight (PST) on May 30, 2014, otherwise you’ll start on June 3. Some Verity members plan to take a few days off during the head start.
WHERE: Server TBD; Exiles Faction
A server list is supposed to be released today. Check the guild website for the server we’ll be starting on. It’ll likely be posted today or tomorrow (Thursday) right smack on the Home page.
HOW: Get Your Copy
You can purchase your copy of WildStar online from the official website, or from GreenManGaming.com at a 20% discount if you use coupon/voucher code: ZMMIEX-EW1476-OPNL11 now through May 30th (Friday). WildStar is subscription based, so there is a monthly fee to play, however, and this is a big however, you get your first month free and you can purchase additional game time with in-game CREDD. So essentially you can pay your way when you play.
If you have any questions or just want to get really excited *squee*, pop in our IRC channel (irc.geekshed.net#Verity Port: 6667) or try our IRC web chat.
We hope to see you this weekend!
