Today’s WildStar Wednesday is another round of patch notes. I’m still impressed with the fact that the WildStar team took this route to address the notes being leaked back when Beta first started.
As someone not in Beta.. it’s nice to see what’s going on.. but, it also is a bit of a spoiler, as it gives away what would be a ‘surprise’ when first playing the game (things like zone names, ability names, etc…).
Based on today’s patch notes, both factions are currently playable in Beta..and you can now flag yourself for PvP (what is interesting, is their patch notes point out that they expect there to be some griefing now).
Both Exile and Dominion factions are now available for play! Flag yourself for PvP and go nuts in the open world!
PLEASE NOTE: This is our first time testing out dual-faction gameplay. Expect many testers to discover effective griefing methods during this beta phase. Please ensure that you get the data you need, report the issue, and then move on. Let’s make sure both factions have an equally enjoyable time in CBT3!
Hopefully the beta testers will heed that big note, and not grief folks to the point they stop playing/testing. I hope Carbine at least gets some good data out of it, and can take steps to minimize the griefing come launch.
This is a nice quality of life feature to add:
All classes are now able to resurrect allies when out of combat by right-clicking on the player’s body.
Related to this, resurrect abilities no longer need to be slotted in the LAS to be used.
I first came across this in SWTOR, and it’s a much better option then having to stand around and wait for your questing partner/party member to have to make a corpse run because no one is questing as a healer… More games should add this.
I don’t want to comment too much, and potentially spoil things for someone who might be trying to wait for the game to come out (or till they get in beta) so they can approach it ‘fresh’.. so I’ll paste the full notes after the jump, and you can go to the WildStar site and read them here also.
