Raids: Gameplay

Raids

What, how, and why are they?

Raids

Take your trespassing skills to the next level!

If you thought WildStar raids would be a carefree cakewalk through Creampuff Mountain on roller skates with doughnut training-wheels, you probably have a serious head injury! On the upside, we’ve just spent eight years coming up with the perfect cure: the most intense raid content ever hyped!

These raids aren’t just hardcore, they’re diamond-core 20-player PvE dungeons on crack that will pit your characters against the loudest bosses ever promoted!

Hardcore

The principles of being legendary!

20 Ass-Kickers

To Defeat A Boss, You Must Become Boss!

Wading into battle half-cocked may have been enough to conquer universes back in your gam-gam’s day – what wasn’t? But on Nexus, EVERY raid encounter will demand the utmost in herculean timing, split-second preparation, and scholarly strength! Will you have what it takes to kick Nexus’s toughest denizens in their monstrously misshapen junk or will they be picking their teeth with your femur come nightfall? Either way, you win!

Complexity

KEEPING IT SIMPLE’S STUPID!

Nexus’s raid bosses hate uninvited guests and they’ve come up with numerous ways to deter solicitors. From relocating traps and watchdogs with a healthy appetite for butts to casually reconfiguring the entire layouts of their condos. Be prepared to withstand all types of natural “sunders” or you’ll be in a world of pain…literally!

Replayability

FINISHING IS ONLY THE BEGINNING

Sure you’ve done the impossible: cleansed the area, killed the bosses, looted the loot, and killed the things. But if you wanted a static universe, you came to the wrong one! On Nexus, enemies learn from your pesky visits. Be prepared for tectonic shifts from one week to the next, with unique events and bosses available at variable times. Because the only thing better than accomplishing the impossible is doing it repeatedly.

Bosses

These Bosses Will Fire You... Literally!

Nexus’s raid bosses are more than just oversized jerks that take longer to die, they’re oversized jerks with backstories, hopes and dreams, and legions of specially bred followers fiercely devoted to their cause (which is usually killing you). Defeating them will require literally every shred of skill you possess, because your opponents are not only up to speed on advanced battle tactics, they’ve evolved tons of ways to counter them.

Rewards

Your Legend May Be Forged But The Money’s Real!

After defeating Nexus’s toughest delegators, don’t forget their putrefying uber-corpses are loaded with desirable accessories. From epic armor sets, uniquely powerful runes and elderly gems in record numbers, to artifact weapons of incomparable majesty. The goodies you’ll find on these deceased demi-stiffs will more than justify every death and bead of perspiration!

THE GENETIC ARCHIVES

BE FOREWARNED: SPECIMENS MAY BE FOUR-ARMED!

SECURITY LEVEL

ACCESS: DESTROYED!

The forces of corruption nestled in Isigrol grow stronger, infiltrating the secret Eldan facility known as the Genetic Archives, a massive repository for the eugenic data of all organisms across Nexus!

THE BIO-VAULTS

*BIO-INVEST IN YOUR FUTURE: DEATH!

Here the twisted sinister force calling herself the Dreadphage Ohmna and her diseased minions continue spreading their toxic influence throughout the vast installation’s labyrinthine Bio-Vaults, spawning endless hordes of virulent Strain monstrosities that if left unchecked will reclaim their primacy over the planet.

THE PROGENITORS LAB

NOT YOUR GAM-GAM’S DREADPHAGE!

In a last-ditch effort to avert this nightmarish event, you and other great champions have been dispatched to penetrate the Archive’s harrowing depths!

Dreadphage Ohmna

HER SYNTHESIZERS HAVE A GOOD BEAT: DEAD BEAT...

Having survived the horrors of the Bio-Vaults, you will find a dread presence haunts these corridors at the heart of the Archives, preying on the venturesome and hopelessly lost with cruel delight. None know for certain the origins of the Strain abomination known as Dreadphage Ohmna, but whatever she once was, you and your hardy band will ensure that her future is certain: gratuitously agonizing death at your capable hands!

THE DATASCAPE

MAWED IN THE MACHINE

HALLS OF THE INFINITE MIND

SYNTAX “TERROR”!

Answer the Caretaker’s desperate plea to access the deepest recesses of the Nexus Project and jack into the Datascape—the virtual world where the myriad shards of the Caretaker’s fractured personality reside and have devolved into capering aspects of sadistic madness.

THE SHARDS OF CHAOS

PSYBER-CHOTIC EPISODE!

After traveling deep into its darkest recesses, jacking into the Datascape and bring the powerful AI back online should be simple—despite all the mutually hostile, psychotic shards perfectly content with their new identities intent on ensuring that doesn’t happen.

THE INNER CORE

DEVICE “MASSACRE”

After battling through powerful digital constructs populating the unreliable, shattered maze of the Caretaker’s virtual mind, players will come face to face with Avatus—the brilliantly insane, insanely formidable facet guarding the only ingress to the Datascape’s Inner Core!

THE WARMONGER

THAT’S “MAUL” SHE WROTE!

What’s big, red, and thinks bludgeoning you in the face with a giant hammer is the greatest use of its time? The insane Caretaker’s roving computer program! While IT may have started as a peaceFUL anti-virus app, the derangement of its crazed creator has transformed it into a dealer of woe that ceaselessly stalks the hidden byways of the Caretaker’s splintered personality core, crushing the nail-shaped and unwary to paste!
