Critical Severity Skyrockets due to Wild Storm Elixir Exploit

Many of you might already be aware that a new exploit is currently circulating on consoles. Several videos and screenshots proof that some players are able to dish out way more damage than intended. They pretty much one-shot content.


There were some speculation going around about the cause, but it seems to be overstacking Critical Severity with the Wild Storm Elixir. We have multiple sources confirming the issue. Not all details have made it to the public yet however. Observed exploiters log in and out quite frequently, but that’s only part of the process. And while it’s definitely working on consoles, we have conflicting reports whether it might be possible on PC as well.

Anyway, it is an issue right now and several threads on the PWE platforms have been muted (1 2 3 4). Youtuber Garlaanx even got banned (again) on the subreddit just confirming that there is an exploit.

    In the top video I didnt see the potion icon for wildstorm on Lucifer.

      It’s probably because the UI is coded to only display five buff icons max. There are three green dots next to the icons that indicate there are more that are not shown.

      edit: see the exchange below

    this glitch is done by not having the buff and having them slotted in all your d pad keys, you need to not have the buff, you change char, then spam your d keys while loading in. you can make this huff essentially infinite if you never let it expire.

    • February 1, 2017 at 10:12 pm

      So you slot them all in ur dpad? then log out and relog? spam ur dpad? ez DPS?

      lol you are clueless, i know exactly how licifer did this and i assure you its not this, its very difficult to trigger and only lasts 1 hour, It can take a long time to set up also as it doesnt always work and sometime takes from 20mins to several hours, If you want the exact details of this exploit that comes with a price

      • February 2, 2017 at 7:06 am

        If you’re on Xbox let me know what the price is. I’ll have to confirm it works before payment of course

          If you want to try it, queue up for a 3 man Temple of the Spider. Run through the dungeon, when you’re going to face the last boss the “Your team is waiting for you” or when the countdown begins. As soon as it hits 0, you have a small window of nothing, hit your Wild Storm Elixir in that window. Kill the boss and get invited to a queue from inside the dungeon. The Crit Sev should scale up from the level 50 dungeon. If the Elixir was consumed it won’t work and you’ll have to try again the next hour.

        How much is that easy to do ? i just one to try little bit . because it’s risky anyway nobody buys HIV 🙂

      • February 2, 2017 at 10:54 am

        Do tell. I am willing to pay

  • February 2, 2017 at 12:05 pm

    What the f… How?

  • February 2, 2017 at 8:03 pm

    The exploit still works (ps4). I ran mSVA with a few individuals that were using it. Of course they want you to pay way too much to share their exploit knowledge. One dude was asking for a tenser disk lol. I hope it gets fixed ASAP. IMHO it isn’t really cool to one shot things because someone discovered an exploit while the rest of NW community has to put hundreds or even thousands of hours to get their toons to a competitive level. Then comes along an undergeared toon with exploit and bamn!!! 1 billion hit…

  • February 3, 2017 at 9:35 pm

    Paying 100 identification scrolls for the tutorial/explanation for the exploit

    • February 4, 2017 at 8:06 am

      If you know it I would pay double what you did if you would share? 🙂

  • February 4, 2017 at 7:59 am

    Anyone know how to really do this? I would just like to complete FBI or SVA once. The few times (once every two hours) that I can get in or accepted we fail

  • February 5, 2017 at 1:10 pm

    Anyone figure it out yet?

  • February 10, 2017 at 9:49 am

    it’s easy you get several bottles of the potion and take as many as you can right before the boss battle.

  • February 13, 2017 at 7:48 pm

    Figured the key out finally. Willing to share knowledge with those who have AD or Valuable Loot.

    • February 14, 2017 at 7:34 am

      I willing to give a valuable loot, how do I add you?

    • February 14, 2017 at 8:27 am

      If you give me a legendary pack I will tell you how this is done. Of course you give me the legendary pack first.

  • February 14, 2017 at 12:32 pm

    Your funny, that’s not going to happen bud. One r12 dark, azure or radiant is what you get to pick. Contact me if you want otherwise don’t waste my time.0

    • February 15, 2017 at 9:20 pm

      Email for information on 35000 critical severity. Will explain transaction through email. Charging r12’s any kind or min 1 million AD. Will provide proof before. trade. Hit me up for the knowledge.

  • February 16, 2017 at 6:01 am

    Or save your money/AD and just enter a skirmish/dungeon like Dread Legion, pop Wild Storm (or the deflection potion), disconnect, load back in and pop another, doesn’t work every time, but after a few attempts you’ll get it up there.

    Will only work on Xbox & PS4 due to how they handle active user accounts.

  • February 20, 2017 at 11:19 am

    Email me: for the exploit tutorial. I suggest to not share it out since, only a hand full of people can do it. Also, NW devs are already on the case so you might want to use it before its gone.

    Also, I don’t not give it out for free. Since Lucif3r and Tank Me Please gave it to me, I gave them a promise to not just give it out for free. If you’re willing to give us at least R11/R12 Negation Enchantments, or anything not too valuable, but just a little gift for the exploit will do fine.

  • February 21, 2017 at 7:02 am

    @dude i hope you get banned, you stupid fak. selling exploits, Thats fakked up lame

  • February 23, 2017 at 9:32 am

    Giving this for 25$ or 1 12 bonding

  • February 25, 2017 at 11:16 pm

    the way ive done it and a few others is, load up dread legion skirmish, drink a wild potion, run the skirmish but dont open the chest at the end! leave the group and re queue, when you get into a new skirmish drink another wild potion and logout then log back in. if it works you will have the crit boots, if it didnt work open the chest and repeat the steps.

    now you all can try it without all these nuggets trying to charge you for it.

  • February 26, 2017 at 5:12 am
