AMPs System is part of WildStar Action Set Builder (default key ‘B’). At level 6 you’ll unlock AMPs. You can find AMP tab right next to your Abilities tab. This feature allows you to get extra stats and additionally tune character’s build. While leveling, your character earns AMP points. At level cap, your character will have 45 AMP points obtained through leveling. At level 50 you can get 10 more AMP points by spending Elder Gems. Elder gem vendor sells item called AMP Power Upgrade that unlocks an additional point of AMP Power. A maximum of 55 AMP Power can be unlocked through leveling and bonuses. Placing points into unlocked AMPS adds new features like: abilities cooldown reductions, adds lifesteal to your attacks, improves secondary stats, unlocks new spells, adds effects on heal, damage, kill, abilities and etc.
Once you open AMPs Tab you’ll see 6 AMP sections – Assault, Support, Utility, Hybrid A/S, Hybrid A/U, Hybrid S/U grouped in three circles, representing Tiers. Each Section reflects the play stile of a player. While Assault gives more commodities for damage dealers, Support section gives more commodities to healers and tanks, Utility gives more commodities to PvP combat, Hybrid A/U; A/S; S/U with their commodities tries to connects Assault, Support and Utility.
AMPs are important part of WildStar Skill Calculator, where you can put points in six different parts – Assault, Support, Utility and 3 Hybrids. They are random world rewards, but the Tiers are rewarded based on level. You can obtain them as random mob drops, quest rewards, or simply buy them from vendor, but, you have to achieve at least Popular reputation level (8000 reputation with your faction) before you can buy AMPs from Reputation vendors.
In the table below you can find locations for all Spellslinger Amps Vendor, for both factions Exile and Dominion. By clicking on the links in the Vendor columns you can see map location for each vendor. You can also search the table by choosing vendor name, or location from drop down menus at the top of the table.
The Spellslinger livestream that went down this past weekend has been uploaded to YouTube for your viewing pleasure. If you missed the stream, or just wanted to watch it again, you’re now welcome to view it at your leisure. Let us know what you think of the video, did it make you want to pull out your pistols and slinging some spells? Let us know in the comments below!
I like to imagine the idea for the Spellslinger came out of brainstorming session devoted to making the idea of a cowboy in space even more appealing. It’s not necessary an easy task at first glance, some of the most iconic and recognizable sci-fi characters define what a space cowboy truly is. Then the folks over at Carbine studios, geniuses that they are, said “Let’s give them magic pistols!” And thus the Spellslinger was born.
For the third week in a row the WildStar team is showing off their new and improved class designs, and this week it’s all about the Spellslinger. Continue reading to see the news post containing links for all the info on the Spellslinger. Continue reading →
If you ever wandered what kind of skills each of the Wildstar classes gets a little bit further into the game, the following video might help you satisfy your curiosity. We took the chance to film all the skills for all the classes available at the show floor of GamesCom 2013 and we even filmed some of the skill animations while we were at it. We would have filmed more, but Carbine made available only the skills you see here. These skills are something a level 20 character would have access to. Please do remember that these skills were just part of the demo shown on the show floor and might not make it to the release of the game at all or will make their appearance in the full game completely modified. Still, it gives you a sense of direction Carbine is going with each class and what kind of skills you can expect for Stalkers, Espers, Spellslingers and Warriors. I hope you like the emotes we filmed at the end of the video as well 😉
P.S. Make sure you watch it in full HD – that way you’ll be able to see the skill text crisp clear.
