Gamers everywhere know that a good guide can be invaluable, but sometimes guides don’t always live up to the hype. Killer Guides has released their unofficial Wildstar Online Leveling Guide, and they make a lot of promises made like helping you level to 50 in 7 days as well as become one of the best at PVP.
Naturally, a guide that makes all these bold promises would make a gamer like me skeptical. I’ve made the mistake of buying guides that didn’t live up to the hype in the past and didn’t want to make the same mistake again. So I decided to do a little checking, and this review is to tell you what I found.
The first thing I found was that Killer Guides has a great reputation with other gamers, and since I’d never tried their guides before, I asked a friend for his take on their guides. He told me that the best part about their guides is that they’re written by gamers like you and I. It’s like having those gamers sitting beside you sharing their knowledge of what works best in Wildstar Online and what doesn’t while you’re playing. Ok, so far I was a little impressed.
Another thing that I noticed is that there is a lot of good information packed into those 80 pages. That same friend let me look through his as sort of a preview, and I found that they really do have everything covered when it comes to leveling a character in Wildstar Online.
Just like they promise, the guide gave me a lot of advice for leveling a character to 50 in 7 days, and the best part of it was that it didn’t matter what type of class or race I decided to play. The guide covers all of them and allows players insight into what actually helps level a character faster and what will slow it down. Think of it as taking the grinding part out of working your way up to the top levels, and getting the best gear for your class.
I have to admit that when I first started playing Wildstar Online, I wasn’t sure about how of some of the game’s features worked. I’m certainly not a newbie when it comes to MMOs, but some of the features in the game were still new to me. However, this guide has a section that will walk you through every feature. That’s also one of the things that impressed me most about this leveling compendium.
Since it’s written by hardcore gamers, I expected it to be written specifically for the same kind of gamers. It’s not. It was written for players of all experience levels from newbie to hardcore, and breaks things down in a way that any gamer can understand. Personally, I would have like a few more pictures in the guide to help explain some of the advice, but the guide works just as well without them.
There are few things more satisfying than beating another player or group of players, and this guide has some great advice that helped me do that. It goes pretty in-depth into all the aspects of PVP including how to get my win ratio higher. The tips offer advice on what gear to look for at key levels as well as the best ways to time different attacks. I even found tips for ways to get though even the worst class match-ups.
Sometimes every gamer just needs a little downtime and a place to call their own in the game, and I was a little surprised to find a section on housing in a leveling guide. That surprise turned into admiration when I started going through the section, and found that they explain everything from the housing interface to what items are worth buying, or how to push the housing boundaries. It’s all explained in such a way that I can let my creativity run away with me and have the kind of gamer’s home I can be proud to call mine.
In case you were wondering, I did take the plunge and bought my own guide. With a 60-day money back guarantee and free updates, I figured it was worth the investment especially since the guide had already impressed me. I had already been playing the game for a while when I learned about this guide, and I’m glad I found it. My gaming experience in Wildstar Online has gotten even better, and while I may not be rushing to hit level 50, I’m having a great time along the way.
If you’re playing Wildstar Online and want to get the most out of your playing time, I definitely believe this book here is worth checking out. Like my friend pointed out, it really is like having a group of experienced gamers there in the room with you, offering friendly advice on the best ways to level, while you’re playing.
