Assault Skills:

Shred is an awesome ability that will deal damage three times up to five enemies. Yes that is right, you can triple your damage in one fell swoop.

Do you have a Tech enemy though? Then Ruin is the skill that you should use. It deals tech damage over time, up to five enemies for up to five seconds.

Now one skill that you can use for the wildstar stalker class build and it will not even break your stealth. Analyze Weakness will allow you to mark up to fifteen enemies and deal extra damage when those enemies are attacked.

Phlebotomize is another great skill you can use that will not compromise your stealth. It will deal damage to your enemy while lowering his healing efficiency by up to 50%.

Utility Skills:

Tactical Retreat is a great skill that utilizes stalker’s stealth abilities. You perform a backflip and activate stealth mode. This can put you back into a tactical advantage against your foes.

The next skill is Blood thirst. You steal half of the damage you deal and gain it back as stealth. You can utilize this with some of the others and be gaining health while dealing damage. Time your attacks right and you can wreak havoc on your enemies.

Preparation is another great skill. It allows you to recharge your suit power over time. It goes further and gives you a defense and health buff. What can be better than preparing for your next attack while preparing for your opponents next attack.

Speaking of buffs, the Stim Drone can be summoned to heal the player while also buffing your overall health.

These are just some of the skills that you can use being a dps stalker. However, the best way to maximise dps stalker is to execute skills at the right place and right time. This is what you need to practice it yourself.

Stalkers are one of the trickiest classes in Wildstar to get right. Yes, you can be invisible and can pull off great assassinations. The array of sneaky weapons available as a Stalker includes stealth, holoprojection, martial art, poisons, quick kills, and much more. Many people wonder, however, if choosing a path will seriously affect the game play style of the Stalker.

It really depends on the path that you choose. The best fit for the Stalker is, naturally, the Soldier. Soldiers focus on fighting, conquering, and defeating enemies. The martial arts skills of the Stalker as well as its assassination skills make it perfect for this class.

In fact, one of the subset jobs for the Soldier is Assassination! Picking the Soldier path isn’t likely to seriously affect the way you play with the Stalker. However, there are three other paths to consider and these paths have the potential to change your game play style in big ways.

Does Choice of Path Affect Stalker Class Gameplay?The Explorer path has the potential to really change the game play style of the Stalker. It will completely pull away the Stalker focus on assassination, martial arts, and combat and force you into a whole new role that might not suit your previous gaming style. The nice thing about the Stalker is that its stealth abilities really play well into the Explorer class. You can sneak behind enemy lines and make claims to properties without them even knowing!

The Settler path may seem like an ill-fit for the Stalker, but it can work with careful adjustments in game play style. You’re going to focus more on building up towns, taking land, and expanding your influence. Your stealth works wonder in this role while your martial arts and fighting skills work well for civil defense. However, your work physical strength and poor building skills make the Settler a hard path to settle into for the Stalker.

Last, but not least, is the Scientist path. This path is perhaps the most difficult for the Stalker and is one that will change your game play the most. The jobs of analysis and mastering various scientific abilities does not suit any of the strengths of the Stalker. Although some players do enjoy a Stalker scientist, its perhaps best advised to stay away from this path. It will require too much stat building against the natural grain and abilities of the Stalker and can nearly ruin your game. It is in fact, more suitable to the Spellslinger class, of which is discussed on http://www.wildstarspellslinger.com

Playing a Stalker Tank in Wildstar Online

The Stalker is a truly unique class in the world of MMOs. It’s a stealth based class, which most seasoned MMO players would expect to be a standard damage dealer, but in WildStar, the Stalker can also be a highly effective tank. Those fancy claws you’re wearing? They’ve never been more fun.

Unlike other tanking classes which focus on damage mitigation, Stalkers focus on evasion– in other words, they won’t take as many hits as your bulky WildStar Warrior¬†and the WildStar Engineer because they’re going to dodge most of them instead. Stalkers are somewhat prone to damage spikes because they’re wearing medium armor, so as a stalker tank, you’ll want to stay on your toes. Fortunately one of this class’s many tricks is access to self-heals to help offset this, and that’s just scratching the surface. If you’re looking for an unconventional tank with a unique playstyle (and some classy nanoarmor to top it off), then this might just be the class for you.

Let’s take a look at the sort of tools that a stalker tank would be using. We’ll start with the basics: a tanking stance. Stalkers come with three stances (or types of Nano Skin as the game calls them), and the evasive stance is the one you’ll be using as a tank. The evasive stance ups the Stalker’s damage deflection as well as threat generation to ensure that the enemy is attacking the Stalker, and not their party members, at all times. This stance also reduces the Stalker’s damage output a bit, but remember: as a tank, your job isn’t to dish it out, just to take it!

Once your Stalker is in evasive stance, you’ve got plenty of tools to make sure that the enemy remains focused on you. These include Whiplash, which increases threat as well as dealing damage, and Reaver, which taunts the enemy, forcing it to attack you and only you– useful for when you’ve got allies that the enemy wants to devour.

Things are starting to look dicey? Not a problem. Activate Nanofield, which heals you for 75% of the damage you deal. Still need a quick escape? False Retreat allows you to leap back out of the action for a while, and then jump right back to where you started when you’re ready.
