This post has minor spoilers for and images of Alpha Sanctum, the level 15 lore instance. Fairly warned be ye.
This place is just beautiful
I purposefully held off on doing the Alpha Sanctum during beta. I wanted to wait and experience it for the first time on live servers, and I don’t regret that. It was a pleasant diversion to escape the chaos of launch week, hop on my lowbie dommie spellslinger, and score some sweet sweet lore.
Lore is the shiniest of shinies.
The instance itself is straightforward, as befitting its low level introductory status. It gave some nice background on the primal elements and the different groups of Eldan participating in the Nexus project without giving too much away. There wasn’t too much in the way of new information for a veteran player, but it was nice to see it all laid out plainly instead of gathered in bits and pieces from data cubes scattered around the world.
Even good old you-know-who put in an appearance
Overall I enjoyed the experience. I hope that this earlier introduction to the Eldan and their “great work” helps get even more people hooked on the lore of WildStar.
