WildStar offering a free mount to players who use 2-step verification

Posted on July 10, 2014 AT 09:10am

Carbine is offering all players who have 2-step verification a free mount to help protect as many accounts as possible. For those who don’t know what it is, 2-step verification basically adds a secondary password to your account, except this password is a string of randomly generated numbers instead of something you create yourself.

“Imagine you’re enjoying all Nexus has to offer. You’ve obtained the rarest of Housing decor, you’ve maxed your Arena rank in PvP, and you’re swimming in gold like the Nexus version of Scrooge McDuck. Living the good life, right?” the developer wrote. “Then all of a sudden, you log in and all your items are gone, your character’s left cold and nude in the middle of the capital, and your hard-earned cash has been stolen! That’s just the worst.

“Now imagine that you have 2-Step Verification set-up and it’s back to the good life. Your items are safe, your gold’s secure. Now your account’s much less at risk of being compromised and you can focus on the important stuff.”

As well as getting two percent bonus XP, Renown, and Prestige, a Cybernetic Eyepatch, and the Certifiably Certified in-game title, from July 10 all players with 2-step verification on their account will get the Retroblade Mount for free.
