Use this item to exchange it for your choice of Fused Gauntlets, a unique exotic item. Completion of this achievement requires all of the other Flame and Frost achievements except “A Rallying Flame“.

As some of you might have noticed we attended an event where NCSoft and Carbine presented their up and coming MMORPG Wildstar. We took this chance to talk to Wildstar’s Lead Systems Designer, Mr. Christopher Behrens, about the dungeons in their game. We played a level 20 dungeon during the event and I must tell you that it felt very good. If you want to find out more about the basic principles and ideas behind dungeons in Wildstar feel free to watch the video below:
Wildstar Life, website from our MMORPG Life network, has been invited to attend a fan event in Brighton, England. Reason is Wildstar, upcoming MMORPG from Carbine Studios and NCSoft. They will get to play the game, talk to the developers in person and generally get familiar with what Wildstar has to offer. First reports already came in and it seems that Wildstar has a lot to offer to MMORPG fans. The game just entered its first closed beta stage (which you can sign up for here), but it already feels very developed and thoroughly thought out. Our reporters from the scene are under a strict NDA, but we can assure you that they will relate everything they can about the game and there might be some interviews up on the website very soon as well. We’ll update this post with news as they happen and you can also follow @mmorpglife on twitter for up to date news.
