The WildStar Online Esper class functions like a stationary turret of destruction, hurling beautiful and deadly illusions at its foes.

If you would like to top the DPS charts in that dungeon or raid, there are certain skills that should be part of your limited action set, or LAS. The WildStar Online Esper class uses Psi Points in order to cast massively damaging skills. The Esper can build up to 5 Psi Points through the use of it’s 2 builder options. First we have the ranged builder Telekinetic Strike, which is a stationary cast, however it always outperforms the melee builder Psychic Frenzy in PVE DPS situations. Always take Telekinetic Strike to DPS in a raid, dungeon, adventure or any group content. It is best to enhance Telekinetic Strike with a skill in the AMP tree, known as BINGO. This skill causes your builder to create an additional 2 Psi Points when it crits, so that you can cast a 5 point finisher ability more rapidly, thus increasing your DPS exponentially.

Now that we have chosen our builder, we need to flesh out the rest of our LAS. It is suggested to take the skill, Concentrated Blade, to increase your Psi Point generation. This skill summons up to 2 spinning blades, that will attack the nearest target after 4.4 seconds, and each blade will generate a Psi Point once it makes contact with a target. It is a fantastic skill that is useful in every PVE situation. Psi Point generation can be further increased through the use of Spectral Swarm, which is a skill that is also unlocked in the AMP tree. This particular skill summons 3 illusionary creatures that attack your target for 10 seconds, and generates a Psi Point. More damage, more Psi Points, it’s a win win!

Now what to do with all these Psi Points? Spend them on the finisher Mind Burst, which hurls a beautiful blue phoenix at your target. This ability, when cast with 5 Psi Points, does massive damage! It is quite possibly the highest damaging ability in the game! The final 4 skills of your LAS are determined by your personal flavor, but always be sure to take an interrupt such as Crush, which knocks down your target, and sets them up to get wailed on!

That’s all there is to it, now get out there you psionic duelist and melt some enemies with your mind! If you require a support class to accompany you, you can always call on the stealth of the Stalker. More on that is being discussed at Wildstarstalker.com.
