Patch Notes For 2021-12-09.1
Features & Changes
The Winter Nexus event has returned to New Eden! This ingame event will run until downtime on January 4th 2022.
Volatile Ice Storms have begun to appear across highsec, lowsec, and nullsec space. These ice storms spread out across the stargate network two jumps from a central system, and occasionally move from system to system just like metaliminal storms. These storms provide bonuses to ship thermal resistances and module overheating for all capsuleers flying within them. Sansha's Nation and Outer Ring Excavations have both mobilized to take advantage of the novel forms of stellar ice found within these storms.
For the Capsuleers who would rather head out in to space and discover what the event has to offer on their own, we have hidden the intricate details for you. If you would rather get all of the information before heading out then you can reveal them in full with the button below.
Reveal the secrets of the Winter Nexus
Wightstorm combat anomalies have begun appearing within the Volatile Ice Storms. These sites are full of hostile Sansha's nation vessels, and CONCORD advises capsuleers bring a battlecruiser ship or better when attempting to engage with these forces. The Wightstorm Forward Base site found within storms that originate in highsec space appears to be guarded by the weakest Sansha fleets, with the nullsec Wightstorm Transit Site posing an intermediate challenge and the lowsec-based Wightstorm Muster Point offering the greatest challenge for the greatest rewards.
Small numbers of new Wightstorm Anchorage sites can also be found within the lowsec and nullsec Volatile Ice Storms. These locations contain hostile Sansha's Nation Dreadnaughts and CONCORD advises capsuleers to engage these sites either at the helm of a stout capital ship or with a fleet of allies.
Wightstorm data signatures can also be found within Volatile Ice Storms. These Sansha's Nation data sites can be hacked by enterprising capsuleers equipped with scan probes and data analyzer modules.
Volatile Ice Field anomalies can also be discovered within Volatile Ice Storms. These fields of newly discovered stellar ice have recently been captured by ORE and Mordu's Legion forces who have driven away the Sansha harvesting fleets. These ice fields can be accessed through a special ORE-commandeered acceleration gate that only allows medium and small mining and hauling ships to enter (Expedition Frigates, Mining Barges, Exhumers, Industrial Ships, Blockade Runners, Deep Space Transports, and the Porpoise). The volatile ice found within these fields cannot be reprocessed by standard facilities, however Outer Ring Excavations has set up mobile ice collection operations within each of these ice fields, and is willing to trade with capsuleers who contribute to their mining operation. Capsuleers can trade seven units of volatile ice with the ORE representatives in the ice fields to receive a package of valuable salvage and items that ORE forces collected from the wrecks of Sansha ships. Rumors suggest that other valuable Sansha salvage has frozen directly into some of the ice chunks and can be occasionally picked up along with the ice by normal mining activities.
Rewards that can be found by capsuleers within all of these sites include valuable Overseers' Effects, hundreds of festive ship SKINs, limited-time Cerebral Accelerators, character apparel, special Sansha's nation combat boosters, Sansha's Nation pirate implant sets, and rare faction modules.
Limited-time Ice Storm filaments are now available that will instantly transport capsuleers into one of these volatile ice storms. Each filament clearly states in its description how many capsuleers it can transport and whether it will take them to a highsec, lowsec, or nullsec storm.
A new Yoiul Festival seasonal challenge track can be found within the Agency. These challenges can be completed over the course of the event by engaging with the combat, hacking, and ice mining sites within the Volatile Ice Storms. Completing these challenges will provide players with points that will progress them along a reward track consisting of new exclusive Aurora Universalis skins and Sansha combat boosters.
A new set of daily login gifts are available over the course of the Winter Nexus event including snowballs, ice storm jump filaments, new Aurora Universalis skins, Sansha combat boosters, and up to 510k skill points. Players can receive all of these rewards by logging in at least 13 days between now and January 4th.
Keep an eye out for multiple wintery Abyssal Proving ground events over the next month, including 2v2 Assault Frigates from December 10-14, 1v1 Navy Frigates on December 18, a T1 Cruiser with T1 modules FFA from December 31 - January 4, and 1v1 Battleships on January 8. All of these proving events will feature a special set of environment effects that increase afterburner speed bonuses by 100% and reduce heat damage suffered by overheating modules by 50%.
The Chilling Spree snowball challenges have returned, providing bonus SP each day for launching festive snowballs at other players in a game-wide snowball fight!
🤝Thanks to the community feedback from last year's Winter Nexus event we have improved the agency challenges for this year's iteration of the event. You are now guaranteed to have a variety of different gameplay style options (pve combat, exploration, and mining) in your list of challenges unlike last year where randomness could sometimes cause a player to be provided with a full list of challenges for the same gameplay style.
