Last week Carbine Studios finally revealed the final two playable races for WildStar, the Chua and the Mordesh. This week we are getting a look at a couple major characters that hail from these races; Mondo Zax, a devilish Chua who is a genius when it comes to machines, and Victor Lazarin, the alchemist that inflicted the Mordesh people with the Contagion that essentially makes them space zombies.
Both characters have an interesting back story, which you can explore in full if you continue reading. Let us know what you think of these two characters and what they may bring to the WildStar world! Continue reading
In this week’s WildStar Wednesday Jon “Bitwise” Wiseman talked about some of the amazing projects the WildStar team has seen grow out of their add-on development tool. This tool, which will be included for free along with every copy of the game, allows players to make custom add-ons to incorporate into their WildStar experience.
The big focus this week was on some amazing UI add-ons created by the WildStar community, particularly those developed by a user going by the name PacketDancer. She has taken a lead role in both developing some of the more interesting add-ons, but organizing fellow creators on the forums as well.

There wasn’t much in the way of new WildStar information revealed at E3 this year. Luckily that won’t be WildStar’s last trip to a convention this year.
WildStar is planning to be at both Gamescom, held in Cologne, Germany, and PAX Prime, held in Seattle, Washington, during the course of the year. It’s likely that these will not be the only other conventions visited this year, but these are the only ones confirmed so far.

It’s Wednesday and that means it’s time for some new WildStar news. This week we get a look at the patch notes for the upcoming round beta testing. Invites for this round of testing should be going out this week, so if you have signed up to participate in the beta keep an eye on your inbox to see if you are one of the lucky few who get invited in.
During the last round of beta testing the patch notes were leaked almost immediately, hence the reason the developers went ahead and just gave the patch notes to everyone up front. Seems like they figured that if players are going to get a hold of the information anyway it might as well come from the source. Keep in mind that if you decide to look through the notes you may stumble across a spoiler or two, so read the notes at your own risk.

It’s Wednesday boys and girls, and that means it is time for some WildStar updates! This week’s WildStar Wednesday is all about the weekend stress test event that should (hopefully) be taking place soon.
In the article Craig Turner, the Live Producer for WildStar, talks to players about his job and how he’s going to be trying to manage all the players who want to get in and try WildStar out during the stress test. Now the end point is to see just how much the servers can handle, and as such it is inevitable that they will eventually crash. But the journey from letting people into the game to the fiery death of the servers is an important one; the developers need to know just how hard they can ride their servers before they crash.
You can read the full article after the break, and make sure to keep an eye on WildStar Life for more info on when the stress test will be taking place. Continue reading

What is Wildstar Wednesday? For those following Wildstar avidly for months the answer is known, but for you folks just discovering this game let me explain what Wildstar Wednesday is. It is an article series created by Carbine where you can read stuff like Pope-a-telli (when referring to Mike Donatelli), where Notch is mentioned (developer of Minecraft) and where you find out that Poptart is the name of the first Wildstar closed beta test character (allegedly). All this and much more was related to us through the Wildstar Wednesday article posted on the official Wildstar website by none other than eremy “Gaffer” Gaffney. You can read the full article here and if you last ’till the end you’ll notice that the name of the first announced Wildstar dungeon is Stormtalon and those attending Arkship EU will get to play it (more about that in our next article)!
