Contract Killing

Blaugust 2015, Day 17

If this looks like anything other than an utter nightmare to you, you might enjoy PvP

I’m a pretty big fan of WildStar’s contract system. It took me a little while after they were introduced to really understand what they were and how best to engage with them, but now I’m hooked. The system has been a great way for me to fill in some gaps in my gear, make a ton of money, and even get some sweet pets and mounts. Up until this week, though, I’d been leaving out half of the system: PvP contracts.

All that changed a few days ago, with the combination of my curiosity and a mini guild premade getting thrown together. I had done a bit of PvP in the leveling bracket, with my medic and stalker especially. But I hadn’t touched PvP in months, and had barely ever done any on my spellslinger or at max level. I walked in with no PvP gear and no PvP spec and it turned out about as well as you’d expect that to – I got murdered a lot. It turns out that very lopsided matches are fairly common, since the best geared, most experienced PvPers tend to form premades.

In the end I had a fun enough time to keep going back for a few contracts over the past few days. I build myself a PvP action set and earned enough prestige to buy some gear so I occasionally get a kill or two in before my untimely death. I even had my first winning match, a Halls of the Bloodsworn that we won against all hope with about 15 seconds left on the clock. I think this might become a permanent addition to my daily “stuff to do” rotation, at least until I finish getting those sweet sweet PvP costumes and pets!
