Primetime Now Live!

Written by Team WildStar on November 02, 2017

The Primetime update releases November 1, and with it a variety of Prime content focused additions are coming to WildStar. Genetic Archives Prime 1 arrives, introducing the first new raid challenge upgrade since the initial Y-83 Prime 1 release. Players can take on Genetic Archives at an increased difficulty level, for increased rewards. We’re also adding Prime Levels to three new instances: Protogames Academy, Infestation, and Space Madness; as well as increasing the Prime Level cap for dungeons and Expeditions overall to 15.

Primetime Patch Notes

  • Raids
    • Genetic Archives Prime 1
      • Genetic Archives raid instance has been scaled to the next level of difficulty: Prime 1. This new encounter will offer rewards with a base item level of 155.
      • New achievements have been added to accomplishments related to this new level of raid encounter.
      • Item rewards from the Genetic Archives lockboxes and armor imprints will now scale according to Prime level. The imprints can be turned into the imprint vendor for scaled gear.
      • A new type of collection material has been added to GA Prime level 1 in two qualities: "Mutagenic Diagrams" and "Greater Mutagenic Diagrams". These diagrams can be redeemed at Decrypter Esco for runes, which can be found at Conqueror's Square in Illium and Champion's Corner in Thayd.
  • Dungeons
    • Protogames Academy is now available on Prime difficulty, up to Prime level 15.
    • The maximum Prime level for all Dungeons has been scaled from 12 to 15, with a new item level base of 145 at the highest tiers.
    • The level of difficulty for all scaled Dungeons between Prime level 9–12 have been re-balanced to provide a smoother transition, and have had their rewards adjusted accordingly to match their new challenge bracket.
