Written by Team WildStar on August 16, 2016

Redmoon Rising Raid Preview


The infamous Marauder ship the Redmoon Terror is hulking in low orbit around Nexus, and the best of the best are being summoned to deal with something happening onboard that few know about—but that is almost certainly pirate zombies. It’s pirate zombies everyone. Check out our preview of the first wing of the Redmoon Terror raid, arriving August 17.

 

Mordechai and Ish’amel Lore Update


Before you step foot onto the Redmoon Terror you should learn more about who is sending you there (Ish’amel) and what he’s sending you to confront (Mordechai). Read up on Captain Mordechai Redmoon and Ish’amel the Bloodied in our latest Enemies and Allies Lore Update.

 

Madame Fay is Going Retro

Madame Fay inventory refresh overview, going live with the Redmoon Rising update on August 17.
