Resource Wars

Coming on the 24th October will be the High Security content, Resource Wars.

These can be found as beacons in space, similar anomalies, which the pilot can can merely select and warp to.

Here I have just selected show info overview item. I will not yet be able to enter this site, lacking the standing requirements.

For the various sites, the information will include which ships are eligible to enter. My prospect does not qualify. Only the venerable venture can access the tier 1.

When you warp to a site, you are presented the objectives by a Mission Non Playing Character.

New gate art, that I have not seen before.

Just getting the minimal standings, I am trying my hand at a tier 3. In an armour tanked Prospect! Solo!!

The NPCs will attack the NPC orcas, as well as the players. To make note here, this viewer is not interactive. You will not able to use this part of the User Interface to target lock or click approach. (including that red target icon which does not do anything).

Fearing that the Orca was about to destroyed, I quickly put the requisite 10,000 units of ore so that it will warp out.

Tier 3 completed with 8 seconds to spare. I am using a Michi implant in Slot 7, a MX-1005 in 10.

Completing the site gives these sort of rewards, so what can you get for these?

The interesting point is that the LP store for these missions can be utilised at that particular faction NPC station. Unlike Concord which has its own stations that you need to dock at to cash in. Here I have docked at a Federal Navy station. The LP Store now has a second tab wherein the Resource War Loyalty Points can be spent. Perhaps this is just a preliminary for Singularity server. But these are in my opinion, limited in scope, so I do not envisage longevity from the activity.

Most of the missions that players perform, are done so for the payout. I can directly utilise the rewards or sell on the market. But what do I do with a fitted Brutix? Sell on a contract?! As a sometime barge pilot, my primary weapon preference is Drones. It is a leap of faith that miners will see this as a opportunity to go out to PvP. This is intended for new players however. (Although this is traded off against the necessary to use Exhumers/Expeditions required for the higher tiers). So maybe they will not have the bad habits that are so ingrained in me.

Completing the tier 3 solo? That made it fun.
