Wildstar Esper Lore

Espers are masters of the mind who tap into powerful psychic energies to lash out and incapacitate enemies or strengthen and protect their friends.

The connection between the mind and body is a powerful thing, and no one demonstrates this better than an Esper. Rare individuals that display unusual mental fortitude, Espers must undergo rigorous training in order to harness the turbulent, chaotic energies of the mind – eventually learning to focus and transform this energy into telekinetic power. Once they have mastered this ability, Espers learn to use the psyblade – a sharp and deadly projectile weapon propelled through the air by the force of their minds.

But the psyblade is not the only weapon in the Esper's arsenal. They can also manipulate mental energy to create illusions so convincing they are capable of inflicting very real damage on their enemies. This same technique can be used to bolster friends, allowing them to return to the fray after being injured in battle. A fully trained Esper can turn the tide in any conflict, sustaining and healing their allies while dishing out devastating mental blasts against their foes.



While others waste time swinging clunky metal swords at you, you'll be ventilating them with an indestructible wit-sharpened stiletto forged from 100% superego! Unlike their flimsy milquetoast steel counterparts, your psy-blade projections can be flung with deadly abandon among your cerebrally disadvantaged victims! Brain power never felt so good!

Benevolent illusions

They say time heals all wounds, but why wait? Humiliate generations of traditional physicians by restoring life and buffing armor using only the power of your mind! And if you ever dreamed of transforming into a health-restoring, rainbow-pooping spirit animal? BOOM.

Terrifying nightmares

Tired of hearing that you cause "bad vibes" and fly off the handle over "nothing"? Put those judgmental haters on the short bus to payback school! Use your enemies' worst fears against them, attacking with nightmarish psycho-kinetic horrors guaranteed to stop even the hardiest of hearts.


Espers can be built into three main roles:

  • Stationary Nuke Espers, relying on long range attacks, proper positioning, and knowledge of when to move and when to attack to blast their enemies with massive amounts of burst
  • Mobile Controller Espers, wading into the thick of the battlefield to herd and handle crowds, relying on their life stealing to stay alive
  • Healer Espers, using their large arsenal of targeted heals, buffs, and HoTs to keep their allies alive. They are the most like healers from other games

Tips & Tricks

  1. Always use your pump skill to build your Psi Points. Your dump skills require Psi Points to activate so it’s incredibly important to build them as quickly as possible.
  2. If using Telekinetic Strike you’ll need to position yourself so that you can guarantee multiple hits on your target. The fact Telekinetic Strike is now mobile allows it to be very useful in PvE and PvP. 
  3. Remember that your innate not only provides additional damage mitigation but also generates Psi Points incredibly quickly. If you’re quick enough you can cast two finishers in a very short space of time for massive damage.
  4. Don't forget that you can run around when using Spectral Form. It's your run and gun super-charged skill! 
  5. Try to always maximise your Psi Points before you use your dump skill. The damage or healing from a 5 point finisher is enormous and will only take a second or two extra to generate.
  6. If you’re pursuing a melee build by using Psychic Frenzy, remember that you’re a light armored class and can die incredibly quickly as a result. Remember to equip skills that will compliment your vulnerability such as Crush, Shockwave, Phantasmal Armor or Fade Out.
  7. During the early levels utilise Bolster and Concentrated Blades to quickly generate Psi Points while in combat.
  8. Try to preserve your Utility skills until you absolutely have to use them as skills such as Crush have lengthy cooldowns but you’ll rely on them heavily.
  9. For your Assault finishers (Mind Burst or Telekinetic Storm) try to only use them when you can guarantee they’ll hit your target. If you miss you’ll lose your Psi Points but deal no damage.
