The Future of In-Game Events

Written by Team WildStar on June 29, 2017

Now that the Starfall anniversary is nearing its end, it’s high time to look ahead at what the future holds for these types of recurring festivities and talk about what is happening with Chases.

With any in-game event, it’s important to us that your participation feels especially rewarding and relevant to the content being highlighted. One issue with the current Chase events is that a bulk of the rewards are valued housing customization pieces gated behind activities that aren’t necessarily geared toward the dedicated builders out there. To address this we’re going to be phasing out Chases and introducing a new, more fitting event to offer the décor sets and many other housing pieces previously found as Chase rewards.

Embrace the Chase

Before we get to the new event, we’re going to spin up each of the Chases for one last hurrah. We hope you’ll enjoy and take full advantage of the Chase finales, especially if you want to collect the rewards they offer sooner rather than later:

  • Dungeon Chase: July 3–10
  • Battle Chase: July 17–24
  • Space Chase: July 31–August 7
  • Sim-Chase: August 14–21

Full details for each Chase will be posted with the launch of the event.

New Event! Residential Renovation

After the Chase events are indefinitely paused, in a future update we’ll be introducing Residential Renovation! Players will help housing designer and renovator extraordinaire, Sara Conavius, by completing a variety of activities to earn currency which can be traded for rewards.

We’re currently planning to run this weeklong event once a month, and rotate former Dungeon, Battle, and Sim Chase rewards each time—this means rewards from each former Chase will be available on a three-month rotation. We’ll share more details about how the Residential Renovation event works, as well as what we plan to do with former Space Chase rewards, at a later date.

Very Eventful

Before we signoff, let’s recap all events that’ll be in rotation following these changes.

  • Double XP X-Plosion! – Make the most of your leveling adventures by earning twice as much XP from all sources.
  • Power, Prestige, and PvP! – Square off against other players in PvP to receive double the Prestige reward.
  • Glory Days – Boost your PvE prowess with double the Glory gains from all sources.
  • Blessing of Essence – Blast through your Primal Matrix to reach new levels of power with double the acquisition of Crimson, Cobalt, and Viridian Primal Essence.
  • Boss Hunter Challenge – Earn extra rewards every time you slay a world boss or legendary champion.
  • zPrix Invitational – Take a break from combat and hit the race tracks for some fast and furious rewards.
  • Residential Renovation – Upcoming new housing event! Stay tuned for details.

Annual Holiday Events

  • Starfall Anniversary – Grab a bevy of bonuses and login rewards to commemorate WildStar’s birthday during the month of July.
  • Shade’s Eve – Enjoy this unique fall holiday with a slew of seasonal activities and rewards.
  • Protostar’s Gala Winterfest Extravaganza – Get caught in the season of gift giving (and buying) featuring all kinds of activities and rewards.
