The Protogames Initiative is the fourth drop for WildStar.

General

  • Players now have the option of setting the client up to remember and trust their IP address so that they won't be prompted for two-step verification every time they login.
  • We have updated the way Renown is earned from Veteran Shiphands and Veteran Adventures. Players will now earn bonus Renown from Medals, Daily Quests, and using the Random Queue. We've also added a new currency called 'Glory' to Veteran Dungeons and Raids. This currency will be used to purchase Veteran Dungeon and Raid quality gear. We have removed many of the progression-based rewards from the Elder Gem vendor and moved them to Renown and Glory vendors. Elder Gems will now award mostly cosmetic items such as Dyes, Costumes, Mounts, and Customizations.
