The Battle Chase event is coming to WildStar on January 6th, and its main purpose is to reward all players who participate in Battlegrounds, regardless if they win or lose. This is overall an awesome way to entice players who don’t do a lot of Battlegrounds to at least try them, since they will get something in return no matter what the outcome is.
The Battle Chase event will last from 10 am PST January 6 to 10 am PST January 16, so you will have ten whole days to earn some awesome prizes.
During the time of this event, the Krogg will reward every player that enters a Battleground. Face your enemies and do your best, and you will earn Battle Bits, the event’s tradebcurrency. Of course, by winning you get more of these Battle Bits, but you will earn them even if you lose. Once you obtain a large sum of this currency, you need to go and visit Arnie “The Exchanger” Vandragg who’s located in Conqueror’s Square in Illium, or Champion’s Corner in Thayd. Arnie can take your Battle Bits and exchange them for Krogg Kash, which can be used to buy Battle Chase rewards ( housing décor for example) from Sly “The Collector” Lundggor.
Alongside collecting Battle Bits, this event introduces Battle Chase Crates, which contain the best rewards. You can buy these in the In-Game Store for either Protobucks or the free in-game currency that you earn alongside experience, OmniBits. Mini-Crates can also be earned by completing Battlegrounds, as you have a chance to get one at the end of a match, and each Mini-Crate has a subset of the larger purchasable crate, and there’s a chance that they can drop either the Exile or the Dominion-themed hoverboard.
