The XenoThreat Dynamic Event is a server-wide event unfolding over several action-packed and engaging phases.
The Navy's Aegis Javelin destroyer, UEES War Hammer, is being restocked at INS Jericho Station. Unfortunately, XenoThreat has been intercepting and destroying supply convoys, so the Navy is requesting CDF assistance retrieving the scattered cargo and delivering it to Jericho station. As XenoThreat forces are still at large, combat support is also needed while resupplying the Navy flagship to keep attackers at bay.
As soon as War Hammer is restocked and ready for combat, you will engage XenoThreat's capital-class ships and dangerous fighter escorts in an effort to drive them out of the Stanton System.
With XenoThreat's declaration of war, you are called upon to join the Civilian Defense Force (CDF) to eliminate this threat to the Stanton system.
The message from Special Agent Rowena Dulli, the CDF coordinator, orders you to report to the INS Jericho military station, which is located in the vicinity of microTech. All help is needed to fight back against XenoThreat, so it doesn't matter what ship you pilot or whether you go in a group or alone.
In the next phase, you're tasked with protecting and resupplying the UEE Warhammer, a Javelin destroyer docked at Jericho Station. The supplies are available approximately 600 km away in destroyed Navy ships. Caution is advised on approach, as XenoThreat ground troops may still linger. The materials are stored in secure containers in the cargo hold and all have different properties.
You can grab the containers by hand, but a MultiTool with tractor-beam attachment is beneficial. Note, however, that XenoThreat is highly active in this area, so always watch your back or bring security. While you're off gathering supplies, the Javelin docked at the station may also be attacked by XenoThreat. It must be defended at all costs, as it cannot protect itself while the resupply is running.
Once you've got the cargo on board, travel back to Jericho Station and hand it in at one of the terminals. When all the required materials have been collected and handed in, the next phase of the event begins.
As soon as the supplies are replenished, the UEE Warhammer will fight alongside you against XenoThreat, who have brought an Idris and several escorts. With combined firepower, you must face the waves of attack and ensure that XenoThreat are stopped.
"See the timer? When that hits zero it'll be worthless."
Zeta-Prolanide is an industrial reactant chemical that has found widespread use in neutralizing irradiated materials. Due to its volatility, it must be kept in an electrically charged state. It will lose integrity outside of containment, eventually leading to a rapid exothermic reaction. The current deterioration state is displayed on the container display.
Zeta-Prolanide degrades over time until breaking down completely (Time Sensitive).
"Careful with that one. Acryliplex is extremely explosive if damaged."
AcryliPlex Composite is a moldable material used in the construction of explosives. In addition to being commonly used in demolition applications for heavy industry and mining, it is also used to create small, potent warheads. Care must be taken while transporting larger quantities of the composite as it is impact and heat sensitive.
AcryliPlex Composite becomes explosively unstable if damaged (Damage Sensitive).
"Whatever you do, don't try and quantum travel with that on board."
Diluthermex is an extremely heat resistant epoxy often used in the mounting and repair of ship thrusters. It is considered very difficult to transport in its uncured state as it becomes explosively unstable when exposed to Chan-Eisen fields during quantum travel. Specialized containers must be used to safely transport the epoxy over long distances. Once set and cured, Diluthermex is no longer reactive.
Diluthermex releases a destructive energy pulse if exposed to quantum travel (Quantum Travel Sensitive).
While there is no right or wrong way to approach the XenoThreat Dynamic Event, we've collected a few tips that should help you go through the different phases and come out victorious. Before you begin with your travel to MIC L1, be sure to take on the "Call To Arms" mission to maximize your profits. With this mission active, the CDF will compensate you for taking down NPCs and players with a CrimeStat.
And speaking of the law, always watch your fire to avoid getting a CrimeStat yourself. You don't want to be twiddling your thumbs at the Klescher Rehabilitation Facility while your friends take down XenoThreat and reap all the rewards!
Before entering a Starfarer wreck to search for the resupply materials you should always intiate a scan. Hit V for scanning mode and hold down the left mouse button to start scanning. This will reveal the number of containers and any enemy pirates on board! Even if you do know the number of enemies, sometimes things can go south, so make sure you bring some medical equipment and weaponry.
After clearing the wrecks, power up the generator and open the cargo bay doors. For more effortless loading, position your ship so the cargo bay door faces the cargo door of the wreck.
Remember to come prepared! You should bring a Multi-Tool with the tractor-beam attachment to move containers quickly.
It's also wise to bring some support, as XenoThreat (or other players) may try to attack while you’re busy offloading cargo.
To turn in the resupply materials, fly to Jericho Station and access any of the available trading terminals. You can keep track of the server-wide progress towards the Javelin resupply on top of your screen.
Remember to make sure someone handles the defenses as XenoThreat will attack in waves around the wrecks. Communication is critical to effectively organize the loading of cargo while keeping the attackers at bay.
Once the Javelin is rearmed, it'll go for one last push against XenoThreat. The enemy will join the fight with full force, bringing several Idris frigates, Hammerheads, and fighters. Before taking out the big guns, we recommend first taking out the support crafts.
