POST SHITTY CHARACTER DRAWINGS
OR GOOD ONES I GUESS
OR POST YOUR CHARACTER AND I CAN DRAW THEM REAL SHITTY
It's been a while, /w*g/. How goes your leveling and progression?
s l o w l y because i'm a shitter
and i'm waiting on more people for the exile guild so i can raid on my main
Ah, I've been curious about whatever the hell's happening Exile side. I raid with another guild so I can't really see what's going on with the /w*g/ side of things, for the most part.
Warbros, you guys still around?
I wanted to say hi to Wia.
i need to replace this stupid support system
i can't seem to get lucky lucky
i need to die
Exile side we're pretty active. Warbros is here, but i unfortunately have no idea who Wia is, sorry. I heard some people mentioning a warframe group of the same name so i think people think that we're the same group? I think it's just Warbros because the exile side guild is Starbros
i finally found an i80 support system last week then my raid piece from contracts was an i100 support system
i wanted to die
it's just like the only thing i can't throw money at, it's super aidy, i can't even find a holdover boe
the only assault support systems on the auction house are like i120 and >100 plat and that's hella not worth it to me
just end my life
Literally on my fourth soon-to-be-50.
I'm taking a break though.
It's a lovely brown, Lewd anon.
but that's not true
cassians, mechari, and draken are pretty. chua are disgusting
meanwhile, exile humans are okay, aurin are fuckable but annoying, mordesh are literal zombies, and granok? i'm not sticking my cock in a walking mountain
I NEVER ASKED FOR THIS
Well, that's good to hear, at least. I honestly don't know how Warbros is doing this side. Also, my mistake, there was indeed a Warframe group by the same name, and thought the same people were behind it. Sorry.
Eh? Sure. Here's the gif.
I think the Dominion suffers from Horde/Alliance syndrome. The normies seem to not want to be the "bad guys", and honestly, most of the Carbine media/trailers/art/etc. seem to favor the Exiles. Hell, there's some DRAKEN beast mount that the Exiles get and the Dominion can't use. I think it's pretty telling.
male mechari have warcraft shoulders
why do draken exhibit such high levels of sexual dimorphism? in general extreme sexual dimorphism seems to be a strong theme in this game, with the exception of the chua.
some people swear that although Exile has more players, Dominion has better players. On warhound anyway, there are a few good Dominion and a huge slew of terrible player who die to support warriors in pve gear, or to espers 6 levels lower.
it surely seems the case, at least when you go by the general itself. i know i complain a lot about the vg dom guild being dead, but how can it gain any life if there's hardly anyone here?
Granok are, according to the Ikthians,
>Species consists of sentient organic carbon-silicon structure. Potential design evident in genetic profile, although additional testing required to determine whether subquantum filaments have been manipulated by unknown source.
So I guess while they look like boulders they are not as rocky as they appear
Yeah, oddly enough most of /w*g/ seems to have rolled Exile side. Which I certainly wouldn't have expected.
But, you still have quite a few stubborn /w*g/ people over Dominion side regardless, such as myself. I'm in a guild that's non-4chan (yet, a lot of the /w*g/ Dominion ended up there), and I raid lead there, so I'm pretty much bound to the guild forever at this point.
Otherwise I'd help Warbros, but. That won't be possible at this point. I'm still available to help with dungos and adventures if Warbros need it, though.
>Internally, Granok possess a stone-like skeletal structure that supports their heavy bodies quite well. Musculature and organs are made up of a substance similar in many respects to dense clay, though specific coloration and cellular structure vary depending on function. Granok blood, if one might call it such, is a thick semi-liquid substance rich in nutrients and minerals.
Yeah, this seems to confirm that they have a hard rocky shell, and their innards are very dense and thick, and apparently they fuck just like anyone else.
>Granok are differentiated along gender lines, and their mode of reproduction is largely mammalian in nature. Despite a number of myths and outright falsehoods regarding Granok methods of procreation, it must be bluntly stated that the process is remarkably similar to that of other sentient species.
yes but we still have dommies and we love company
if anyone is around
we have a dommie /vg/ guild, warbros
it's unfortunately usually ded and quiet
there's a few people on right now though
join us pls
>Yeah, oddly enough most of /w*g/ seems to have rolled Exile side. Which I certainly wouldn't have expected.
>wouldn't have expected
>everyone keeps posting DOMINION DED as the game launches
>waves of chua shitposting over the next few weeks while exile avatarfags take the back burner
I was playing Dominion pretty exclusively until the F2P launch, but even I switched then.
>everyone keeps posting DOMINION DED as the game launches
>waves of chua shitposting over the next few weeks while exile avatarfags take the back burner
It was one or two Chua shitposters, compared to the dozens of Exile ERP avatarfags that got reported en masse.
Not saying I like the shitposters either, but /w*g/ has a pretty selective memory on what happened.
Literally looks nothing like Mimi, but I only spent 5 minutes on it.
DON'T CALL ME THAT
>why do draken exhibit such high levels of sexual dimorphism? in general extreme sexual dimorphism seems to be a strong theme in this game, with the exception of the chua.
It is because this game is trying to be a pulpy 90's action cartoon show. Everything about the aesthetics are exaggerated, these fucking trees are the most tree looking trees you'll ever see, goddamn these rocks aren't just 'rocks' they're ROCKS. We have female aliens? Well lets make sure you can tell that they're female by giving them tits that you can see all the way from farside. I mean if you eliminate the body sliders male humans look like pro wrestlers and female humans look like jessica rabbit. It's all in the art style. Some might consider this kind of aesthetic problematic, but it's staying pretty true to it's cartoon / comicbook inspirations.
>Enjoy goofiest movement and combat animations ingame
I'll tweak it.
Meanwhile, what does /w*g/ think of this anime waifu?
Eh, it's hard to be unique when the other faces are so goofy.
Twigs aren't really my thing?
me and some friends are about to jump into wildstar for the first time but I'm torn between 2 classes, pls help me decide /w*g/
I'm stuck between the gunslinger and the stalker, which class is the most fun and which of the two is more useful.
Stalkers can be fun if you love stealth action games and want to treat combat like it all the time.
Slingers if you like being a space cowboy and blasting things to bits while being really squishy.
Usefulness I can't speak for.
>leveling: Wow! I kill shit so fast. THIS IS AWESOME
>end-game: Save me from this hell
>leveling: I have to press more than 3 buttons? This is bullshit!
>end-game: I AM BECOME SURGE, DESTROYER OF WORLDS
I think going up to the main city might be better. Level 7 isn't that far in, but level 14 is better. You'll have a fair number of your skills unlocked by then, as well as access to one of the amp skills.
My dad can beat up your dad
is it just me or does the dominion get more cutscenes?
I think it's just you. We mostly get the same amount through introducing the first dungeon, the hunt for the CUBE between Artemis and Dorian, and other sorts of really important things.
Why can't I hold all these heals?
The community is thriving, you just have to know where to look for it.
I know on Dominion, Darknest is at least alive and well and filled with a bunch of perverts.
You can only handle so many one-line non-descrip responses before you just want to alt-F4.It sucks too, because I get tired of all the futa and lesbian RP.
Join our ERP circle and find out!
Well, just saw an event in the Defile. At least the game was courteous enough to let me get through it before it slowed down to the point of crashing.
So for some reason on W* I can never get below 300 ping. I have a fast internet connection, ports are open (I just open them all since security isn't an issue with my setup), and no other game MMO or otherwise has internet issues.
Any ideas/suggestions? Is it just an ISP/Carbine routing issue?
I wish I could learn sliderfu magic someday.
That is the loveliest fuckboy face I have ever seen.
>Nothing but race regrets
>Chua engineer is fun but too small to even see what half of the armor looks like. The rest of the armor just looks kinda weird on them
>Mechari seem neat but in hindsight an odd fit for a warrior, especially after hanging out with Toric and wanting to roll a cassian
>Granok neater than I initially judged, but the classes they have I'd want to use them for (warrior or engineer) are already filled by characters I already have
>Mordesh medic works okay but if I want to change something to a Granok I'd have 3 exile characters and I'm trying to keep it even
>Don't regret my human spellslinger at least. Good choice 8/10
So basically I need to delete all of my characters and start over. Or just play them for 25 more levels and hope the regret fades
>have 6 and 6
>two of every class, one per faction
>no granok, no exile humans, no chuas
>mfw every combination I chose is perfect
Follow these rules for great victory:
Warrior: Granok, Draken
Stalker: Mordesh, Draken
Esper: Aurin, Human
Engineer: Mordesh, Chua
Spellslinger: Human, Human
Medic: Mordesh, Mechari
is there any way to get a character creation code after creating it?
>tfw you leave all of your halloween funbux grinding for the last day
tfw you look fine as fuck on the outside
but inside youre a broken husk of a man that has endured decades of self-torture and the destruction of your own civilazation
Warriors are Deflect Tanks and they rule.
Engineers are Glance Tanks and they suck.
Stalkers are Evasion tanks, and unfortunately no amount of Evasion stat will help when the player doesn't dodge.
Good WildStar 34 when?
tfw you're just housing and then
judging from the quality of tanks and how hard it is to replace them, there are not enough tanks at all
also it takes a little while to replace DPS, so their may be a slight shortage
is the group finder cross server? I am on warhound exile if that makes any difference
I should probably give up pugging and find a guild or circle, but every guild I see either seems sketch or wants people who have already cleared GA
Just be prepared for tons of porn of
>is it cross server
Yes, all servers in your region and faction are included.
Tanks are still the most needed, but there's more of them than there was. I think people are wising up to that tanks are needed in MMOs. I've had a lot of waits as a tank for a healer, recently, or funnily enough, for a DPS - Though that's only when leveling. At endgame tanks are almost always instant.
Let's include the picture next time.
come to think of it, when I was playing my tank I wondered why the queues were sometimes 20 minutes
and now playing my healer the queues are still ages
so maybe there isn't enough dps?
In Datascape the only tank that is innately bad is Stalkers. The Warrior tank in my group takes the same amount of damage as me and the Stalker takes around 50% more damage than both of us.
The three tanks are so interchangeable now that once Stalker gets retuned you can play any of them. But for now Stalker is some of the worst garbage because of armor changes, a higher focus on long cool down mitigation abilities and the changes to tank healing that they are on such a lower level than the tanks it's almost laughable.
idk man I see this at 50
I'm trying to gear up a fresh healer since when I was playing my warrior tank it felt like there were way too many tanks and nobody needed another tank
Reminder that Drawfriend will come one day with 20-odd pages of Drakfuta to satisfy your degenerate lusts.
And will also introduce "Mountain Aurin" into your vocabulary
Oh man! Contracts are the best thing EVER! Thank god carbino implemented such a good system that totally doesn't make me wanna kill myself!
Tradeskills in general are kinda meh because crafting RNG never gives you the stat slots you want and runecrafting is way more important.
Weaponsmithing/mining for cool pistols or tailor/survivalist for armor. Or just double gatherer for extra dosh.
Does anyone know the name of the i80 gadget that gives you multi hit and has a mechanic that lower its own cd based on how many multi hits you get?
Yeah, I agree. They're pretty good for gearing up new characters, and the extra runes/stuff is nice sometimes. And while I hate doing world bosses, it's a great way of keeping people interested in them. I especially like the extra rep, because fuck I get bored of the daily zones like 2/3 of the way through every time.
Yeah, I decided to stop being lazy and google it and turns out the name of the gadget is Dance of Death. Everyone said it was from SSM, but it's the first time I hear someone actually saying what boss drops it. Thanks.
>tfw your main is a human so getting porn would be pointless
tfw you aren't some sort of FUCKING DEVIANT who would want to get porn of their characters
>tfw all the good porn of your characters is in your mind and would never look as good in print
>being such a no-fun prude you dont want sexual lewds of your avatar
ok here is a question for you guys.
Why do you play wildstar instead of any other mmo?
Also, i got to the starting area off the ship. so far its pretty easy, kind of boring to be honest, though expected seeing as the starting zone is sort of like a tutorial but when does this game get interesting?
can i join the dominion guild?
chua engineer settler that's new to being a level50
if yes then my name is
how did i do?
also, is there room in the exile guild/circle?
>look up artist
>nsfw isnt offered, or charges extra for it
>there are people who believe you need raid ready gear for vet dungeons
whoever told you 95 is a fucking retard.
I started doing vet dungeons at 70. I think you can start at 68 though.
Which one do you grab? Choose wisely
Everyone needs about 10% Strikethrough for vet dungeons. Don't go higher, it just turns into armor pierce. You can take less since you're tanking.
After that, yes. Deflect deflect deflect. Because A) it's a good stat and B) You have AMPs and abilities that give % boosts to deflect, which only get better the more deflect you have.
After that, sure, get crit mit. Stay away from glance and reflect, they're useless for you.
>all this retarded talk
to start doing vet dungeons get 70s from the AH and don't bother with runes until you get the 80 pieces from dungeons
use your abilities wisely and don't stand in red
there, you're geared for vets
>b-but it's not good enough
yes it is, git gud
i figured glance was shit. i'm sorry for bombarding you with all these questions. normally i'm ignored in here, and there's really nobody in the guild that can or is willing to answer them.
do you know if there's a way to change sockets? i'm an armorer and quite a few pieces of my armor all have water sockets and other relatively useless bits. i have earth, fire, and life blocked in my talents
tfw katia says your house is awesome
Crafting only changes the stats a gear piece comes with. You need to reroll sockets manually at a runecrafting station -- either randomly with gold or getting specific ones with service tokens, which are pretty cheap for their omnibit cost. It's gonna run you a high price tage either way.
>overly polite hugboxer from the housing circlejerk says something is good
every time I look on the ah for crafted gear I see badly statted assault pieces with a crazy listing price.
one day I am certain someone will want to sell a support psyblade
well, maybe never
well im back after all the Overwatch hype, what did I miss?
Set runes give power to a set. Each item has its own set, which stacks with sets on other items. You shouldn't worry about them till you start raiding, because sets are % based and basic runes give flat bonuses, which help you more when you have dungeoning-level stats.
okay, cool. i appreciate the info, and you taking time to answer
i want this game to be the game for me, you know? i've drifted from game to game for years, and i'm pretty tired of it
>Veteran Protostar Academy
Excuse me, but you lack the damage for this.
I get that feeling, and I'm glad I could be helpful anon tonight. Keep playing, and don't be afraid to ask questions. Someone'll help you out eventually.
So do you guys think this game will last through next year? The population seems to have fallen off. I don't know if it's going to hover or keep going down. But I don't want to play if there's only like 20 people on the server in a few months.
so queue for everything else first
I freely admit the proto-dungeons are a cut above everything else in difficulty, and the fact that they're in random with fucking STL is pretty funny
but you don't need the random bonus, so queue for what's in your range
everything I've looked up so far is 50g for an i70, the secondary stats don't matter so much since the plan is to replace them asap - but to be fair, I've never looked up psyblades
Are you a hoarder /w*g/? If so, what do you hoard?
I normally collect weapons in games, but there haven't been a lot of skins that I've liked so far.
On that note, which sword is that in the third set, second column, third row?
About to start, which class is fun to start with?
>Particle Ejector specs are kinda boring
>Thresher is 10x more fun but literally shit
>tfw can't play femdesh esper
Truly there is no greater suffering.
What stats should i waste my runes on as a DPS stalker? I have a few crit hit slotted already but all the information i can find are convoluted as fuck or just plain old.
I realize DPS Stalker isn't a popular choice around here but it's already lvl 50 with a bunch of character bound stuff i'd rather not give up on.
aurin can only be spellslingers, espers, and stalkers. Spellslingers and stalkers seem to stand in the red a lot. I have no clue why that is.
Back when I played World of Warcraft almost every rogue player I knew was a keyboard turner except for the one who played on an N64 controller. Something about edgy stealth classes attracts them I think. I think it is the same in this game.
The game will still be here in a year. If this were a sub-game and the population was dying down I'd be worried, but it's not, it's F2P. The barrier to entry has been lowered, bus so had the barrier to leaving. People will put the game down and pick it up as they wish. You'll see the population spike and drop as content comes and goes. We will definitely see a surge for protostar christmas.
There is no doubt however that the population will stabilize better than it was pre-F2P, the free player housing community alone will be more people than Wildstar's total population back in March.
I don't know, but I like the game, the graphics and the gameplay are healing me.
If you consider that RIFT, Champions Online, Dungeons & Dragons Online, and fucking Age of Conan are still alive and still getting updates Wildstar's situation looks 100x better.
Sadly not all MMOs are WoW and very few MMOs will have population growths when there is no new content out there. Minus Shades Eve Wildstar hasn't had any new content since July, and even that wasn't much.
I wish I could pay someone to draw my homework for me, so I could draw other shit instead.
>make something with platinum ore
>proper level power core
>salvage gives me titanium back
>you need to be 15ilvl above vet dungeons to do them
I'm level 48 and I've run out of quests to do at my level. I fucking swear, everything is a group quest in a dead game or everything is like 3 levels below me and they give pittance exp. Every 50 zone just locks me out of quests even though up until this point I was grinding in zones that were intended for 2-3 levels higher than what I had. What the actual fuck is going on and how do I get out of this fucking purgatory of just almost level 50.
Not original responder, but you're retarded because as a healer, you can heal dungeons just fine in i70 as long as you socket a couple focus regen runes here and there.
I can run my PVE i98 set (Unruned except for Overflow, Protector and Guardian Angel), or my PVP i70 set (5/6 Cynosure, 2/6 Resurgence per piece, 8/8 Unstoppable + Fusions) and do just fine either way.
When it comes to healing there's very few things you need to do.
3. Don't fucking die.
I've been lucky in a majority of my pugs where T4 Pyro + Regen Gadget gets the job done and I can sit there auto attacking, but even in shitty pugs, there's nothing to stop you from healing the shit out of a tank.
And I put up with a no-runes-pvp-gear tank. And no, it wasn't even the season 2 gear.
Yeah, it was horrible, but nothing that warden couldn't do to keep the kid up.
You can do SSM, that's two levels.
Or do the daily zones. Crimson Badlands and Northern Wastes should be open to you now, and you can handle the quests there just fine. Each zone will give you a level in probably 30 minutes.

r8 my frosty waifu? And does anyone know of some other cozy winter coats with fur like this one? The set here isn't dyeable so I'm looking for something similar that can be dyed.
Cute/10. I really do like the fringes on the gloves.
As for coats like that, the Bloodsworn Jump Jack is pretty much that same coat, but dyeable. Odd how the one you have supposedly doesn't have dye channels.
Thanks for the tip anon. The gloves and coat in the picture are from pvp vendor gear, ilvl 30 or 40 I think. It always seems to be vendor bought items that lack the dye channels. Not sure if it's a bug or intended.
Unfortunately the Bloodsworn lacks the fur trimmings.
Whats your favorite thing about WildStar?
Just totally realized that i can build Jabba's Palace in housing and probably get a bunch of ERP sluts to hang around my party room and put some kind of NPC monster thing in the basement as a Rancor.
>tfw your bb is about to be as stylish as you
In order of "appreciation."
1. The difficulty and engagement of PVE content. Movement in this game is incredibly fluid and encourages a playstyle that is reactive rather than purely proactive.
1. Also 1 because no other game does housing like Wildstar. Sims comes close because I could create my own furniture and mod my game, but that's too much fucking work.
Plus I can share it, or explore other people's creation
3. An excuse to draw my character in lewd positions.
4. The community. While a bit hug-boxy (fucking Miss Stabby/Shootie stupid bitch) the community is often helpful, jovial and the right amount of cancer sometimes.
Things I hate?
"HUR DUR CUPCAKE U BLEEPIN BETCHA WE R FUKIN BAD ASSES." and that fat wanna-be-nikasaur bitch on the livestream.
If I had a dick, I'd shove it down her throat for the sole purpose of shutting the bitch up.
OH S*** NOW THAT WAS F****** AWESOME
So, friend convinced me to try w* now that its f2p. I like it, stalker is fun.
Also fluffy tails.
My Mordesh has the best ass thank you very much.

because they're about to drop the beat that is their shiet.
god its late.
The swirly shit from slingers is pretty divine, and the visuals from espers is pretty unique/creative/free spirited.
Personally, im partial to the balloons, tree, spooby spiders and glowing armor.
I hurt myself,
To see if I still feel.
I focus, on
The only thing that's real.
whoever you are you can fuck RIGHT off
