They're the biggest of the baddest and the baddest of the biggest. They're bosses and it's time somebody took 'em down! For a limited time get extra rewards every time you or your party slay a World Boss or Legendary Champion. Starting January 7 at 2:01am PST, and going through January 10 at 11:59pm PST, it’s time to take on the Boss Hunter Challenge!
World Bosses allow groups of players to take on formidable foes for high-end rewards, but you don’t have to be in a coordinated raid to jump in. Anyone can attack a World Boss and reap the rewards, so head out and start hunting, and use our recent World Bosses article for help in tracking them down.
During the Boss Hunter Challenge, every time you or your party slays a World Boss or Legendary Champion, they have a 100% chance to drop a new Shiny Token you can turn in at a vendor in your capital city, along with a lockbox key (
normally only available for purchase from the In-Game Store for NCoin or OmniBits). Normal creatures you find throughout the overworld of Nexus have a small chance to drop a Shiny Token as well, so it’ll pay to get some other questing done during the event, too.
Correction: Lockbox keys can only be purchased from the in-game store using Omnibits or NCoin.
But you don’t have to stop at just one boss; you can continually kill each of the World Bosses if you have the Progenitor Access Particles needed to respawn them. And luckily for you the number of Progenitor Access Particles needed has been lowered for the duration of the Boss Hunter Challenge. Additionally, Legendary Champions will be spawning much quicker during this event.
When in doubt, get out there and hunt down a World Boss!
Head over to your faction’s capital city to turn in your Shiny Tokens. In Thayd, go to Titian Nepian in Academy Corner (1203, -2412), or in Illium go to Nate Baydock in Spaceport Alpha (-3353, -542). You can turn in Shiny Tokens for Lucky Lopp Lockboxes, which have a chance to contain the following goodies:
So, dust off your bandoliers and get ready for some sporting-good fun! But hurry, the hunt is only here for a short time. Get into WildStar now, for free, and let the challenge begin!
