Mystery of the Genesis Prime Update Arrives Today -

Carbine Studios and NCSoft have announced that the latest WildStar update, Mystery of the Genesis Prime, will be released later today. The update is focused primarily on lore but also introduces high level players to a new zone, quests and adventures.

Here are some of the highlights from Mystery of the Genesis Prime:

  • Content for all types of players – The Defile, a new level 50 zone, gives players even more exciting places to explore, achievements to achieve, path missions to complete and lots of solo content for those who enjoy playing alone. Just a few of the areas you’ll explore include…
    • The Black Focus provides small group (five-player) content where players are tasked with taking down the crazed Phagelord known as Koral the Defiler, who is looking to spread the Strain throughout Nexus.
    • Siege of the Lightspire is a 20-person, five-part public mega event where players from both the Exiles and Dominion have to work together for a common cause.
    • Journey to OMNICore-1 kicks off the Nexus saga, a multi-part story that is packed with new lore content that advances the story of Nexus even further. Complete with pivotal cinematics, memorable characters, unique gameplay mechanics and more, this content is designed specifically for solo players.
  • New gear, achievements and loot – Monetary quest rewards have been increased by 140 percent, junk items have had their vendor sell value increased by 40 percent, and group and raid difficulty creatures drop a higher quantity of loot. Also, check out new headgear with the Safari Turbonator Mk 9000.
  • Accessibility and comfort – Raiding has become much more accessible as requirements on Veteran dungeons and Adventures have been lowered, and you only have to complete them with a Bronze Medal. Also, rented mount vendors have been added to Algorac, Celestion, Deradune and Ellevar. These vendors will provide an inexpensive and temporary license that will allow players the use of a mount for 24 hours.
  • Changes to Runecrafting – The Runecrafting system makes drops more rewarding and new runes have been added to WildStar, giving players more choices than ever. This benefits PvPers as purchased and crafted PvP items will now roll an additional rune slot to stay in line with WildStar’s group content rewards.
