Housing is one of the core feature with a huge potentials you might not expect, like more rested XP when you log off in your house than anywhere else, crafting ingredients in your garden, your own workbench, daily quests, raid portals with buffs and much more, the possibilities are endles. Housing means a lot of things to different people, but we can agree that customization and decoration are the main housing functionalities.
How to obtain your WildStar House
Once you hit level 14 you are eligible for the housing quest, obtained in your capital city via comm-call. After completing several steps, where you have to visit the Housing of the Future building and check on virtual examples of houses, you will be awarded with your own piece of land (literally) in the sky. Click on the portal in front of the building and it will teleport you to your private floating island. You can also click on the house icon where the transmat teleport button is (by default it’s at the bottom right corner of the screen, next to the action bar), just press the arrow up and select it from the menu.
The Settler path involves more player interaction than any of the other paths. If you like to socialize with others then this is right path for you.
Settlers focus a lot on repairing and restoring things around the Nexus world. Most of the towns in the game require maintaining, and that’s where the Settlers come in handy. They can also build things in towns like buff stations, vendors, and much more that can be used by other players like Speeders!
Settlers also can build whole new posts around world that can help other players during their time in that area, while at the same time helping yourself. Let’s look at an example. Let’s say you deploy a picnic that grants anyone who uses it a +5 strength buff. For everyone who discovers your picnic and interacts with it you will receive a +2 strength buff. So not only are you helping out other players, but in doing so you are powering yourself up. Or let’s say you find a broken Resurrection Station. Fixing it will help not only you, but other members of your faction in the same area. Continue reading →
Explorers are all about discovering the hidden mysteries of Nexus. You can find hidden caves, catacombs, and even whole tunnel network that can help you to move faster around a zone.

You can even go on scavenger missions to find scattered artifacts of Eldans, claim new territory, and engage in time challenges where you are required to get to a certain location in a set amount of time.
The Soldier path is all about two things, power and destruction. Soldiers main goal is to protect and serve their allies and destroy their enemies. Since Nexus is a newly settled planet it is full of dangerous places with scary monsters and creatures that stand in way of good development, for both the Exiles and the Dominion. Soldiers do what they can to make these places safe, ensuring that their respective faction can develop the area properly.
There are several types of missions for Soldiers. Swat missions have Soldiers using special weapons and tactics to accomplish specific goals. For example, Soldiers may find themselves using special grenades to clear pests in underground tunnels, or big “tesla coils” to clear them on surface. There are also protect and capture missions where you need to fight waves of enemies to complete a specific goal. In many ways Soldiers serve as the peacekeepers of Nexus. Continue reading →
