Most of the information in the below post is a bit outdated. However, this KillerGuides’ Wildstar manual has more exhaustive and up-to-date information. One of the more helpful sections of the guide is on leveling. Unlike most guides I have seen online, this is pure expert advice that have helped me a lot in leveling up my esper twice as fast. I also write a review of the guide in this post.
A WildStar Esper’s attack system is based around Psi-points. Players who are able to pick the right combination of builders and finishers in conjunction with Tier One attribute boosts, will prove to be a deadly force in the game. Espers must use five AMP points specific to one of the six categories in the first Tier of the AMP system in order to gain access to Tier Two. Seven points must be spent in Tier Two in order to reach Tier Three. When players reach Tiers Two and Three, special skills are made available. The relationships between the three Tiers will determine the success of players. Espers can be played as a Healer or as a DPS. The decision of what type of Esper is being played, drastically determines what features of the AMP tree are to be strengthened.
Players who desire to make a DPS Esper should pay attention to primary statistics. Finesse plays an important role because it determines Critical Hit Chance. An AMP called “The Power!” is available in Tier Two. “The Power!” is activated when a Critical Hit lands on an enemy. When the critical lands, an Empower buff boosts Moxie by sixteen percent for three seconds. If Espers combine “The Power!” with an AMP skill available in Tier Three called “Quick Response,” cooldowns will decrease by fifty-five percent. This means the Esper can deal attack output twice as fast and for more damage! This relationship of specials is possible only when players understand how Tier One attributes relate to Tiers Two and Three. In order for “The Power!” and “Quick Response” to be activated a lot during battle, max out Critical Hit Chance in Tier One for a total of six percent. This is just one example of AMP point allocation. Espers need to decide early which specials they will use.
Players who desire to make a Healer Esper should pay attention to how Focus is allocated. If Tier One attributes for Focus Cost and Focus Recovery are maxxed out, “Focus Mastery” is no longer an essential skill to obtain. This is because the Tier One attributes are able to produce enough Focus without “Focus Mastery.” Healer Espers who want to cast big heals will diminish the Focus bar faster. Maxxing the Support Power by 7% in Tier One and neglecting Focus attributes, causes the Esper to need “Focus Mastery” located in Tier Two. If WildStar Esper class cast a skill with less than seventeen percent Focus, “Focus Mastery” generates 147 Focus. “Focus Mastery” is dependent on what type of a Medic players decide to create. Espers become a formidable force when they understand that specific AMP skills and attributes complement each other.
