The Sim-Chase Is Live!

Written by Team WildStar on August 16, 2016

The Coalition of Galactic Scientists (CoGS)—a group of scientists from both factions who believe the search for the missing Eldan is too important to let a galactic conflict get in the way—are looking to further their research into Sim-Cores. These holographic simulations left behind by the Eldan not only allow adventurers to experience simulated stories, but could offer clues as to the disappearance of the Eldan. To this end, the CoGS are offering rewards for anyone who can complete Sim-Core simulations (widely known as Adventures).

By completing Adventures during Sim-Chase you’ll earn Hardlight Shards—solid pieces of data extracted from Sim-Cores—and trade them to Exchanger Krova for CoGS Sim-Cards. And CoGS Sim-Cards aren’t just for show, there are those in CoGS who need them to further their own research, and are willing to trade rare cases for them. Trader Jonjo can be found in the capital cities to trade your CoGS Sim-Cards for rare housing plot décor pieces.

Of course good ol’ NCoin or OmniBits can get you CoGS Sim-Cards in bundles from the In-Game Store, as well as two unique cases only available during select times of the event, which may contain a vast array of different and incredible items.

What’s New

The Sim-Chase begins at 10am PDT on August 19 and ends at 10am PDT on August 29.

This time around the Coalition of Galactic Scientists has pooled its resources and is offering a ton of new rewards from the Shrine and Exo-Lab cases for helping them further their research. While the music tracks and skyboxes remain unchanged, the Caretaker NPC has been swapped out for a Security Avatar, you can now earn flasks from the cases, as well as different pets, new housing décor, new iconic NPC décor, and an awesome new mount. Sim-tastic!
