As we move towards testing out our bigger content drops, such as the upcoming Strain drop, we are going to be opening up a new server to test on called Nexus or Public Test Realm (PTR for short). When the PTR becomes available there are a few things that you should know about it:

  • The PTR will be located in the Dallas Data Center
  • As long as you have an Active WildStar subscription (NA or EU) you will be able to access the PTR.
    • Note: This required the team perform magical technical manipulations to make this possible.
  • “Boost” NPC’s will be available in Nexus that will level you up and give you gear.
    • “Boost” NPC’s will only be available for players who have earned a level 50 on a Live Realm before 6/12.
    • We typically take time stamps prior to when the next drop will hit the PTR. Example: Before Drop 2 hits the PTR, we’ll take another time stamp.
  • We are planning on leaving the PTR up and available 24/7, similar to any other Realm, for the remainder of the time that Drop 1 (Strain) needs to be tested.
    • Do note that you shouldn’t approach this server as a new “home” for an ongoing basis as we might have to take this Realm down at a moment’s notice for updates.
    • Please consider the PTR a place to visit and check out some new exciting content, not live.
    • Character wipes may be needed on the PTR from time to time and your progress on this Realm may be lost, this is a fair warning!
  • In-game localization of Drop 1 will not be ready for Day 1 of PTR, but we work to make it available in a future update.
  • We’ve set up forums specifically for the Nexus Public Test Realm, they are:
    • Game Updates
      • Update notes for the PTR will live here
    • General Discussion
      • General talk about the PTR can take place here
    • Bug Reports
      • If you come across a bug, specific to the PTR content we’d appreciate you submitting them here!
  • Finally, the Team truly appreciates your early participation in finding and submitting any issues or bugs with the new Strain content you find while on Nexus. Thank you!

The Public Test Realm can be accessed through the WildStarPTR download found here:
