The next Nightwave Series, Glassmaker, is in development! While Glassmaker work continues, Intermission II is reaching (or perhaps has already reached for some) its maximum Prestige Rank 60. In order for those who have prestiged to Rank 60 to have Intermission II Creds to spend in the Cred Offerings store, more Prestige Ranks must be given. Thus we have increased the maximum prestige Ranks to 90!
In order to avoid spoilers, Nightwave Acts that require completing content tied to Quests will now be locked unless you have completed the related Quest. Locked Acts will point you to the Quest required to complete in order to unlock it. The following Acts will see this change:
“Don’t Fear The Reaper”, complete Kuva Siphon Missions, will now require The War Within Quest be completed.
“Ascendant”, complete Halls of Ascension on Lua, will now require The Second Dream Quest be completed.
“Grove Guardian”, kill Silver Grove Specters, will now require The Silver Grove Quest be completed.
Catch-up Acts will now appear once you have less than 3 current-weekly Acts left to complete, as opposed to only appearing once you’ve completed the whole current week.
Changed Nightwave Act progress / requirement number format (1500 to 1,500).
Fixed overlapping Nightwave UI after viewing an item diorama.
Fixed flickering issues with the orange screens in Episode 3 of Nightwave: The Emissary.
Fixed broken Nightwave UI when skipping through multiple Episode cinematics.
Fixed the Trinity Aura Helmet Blueprint appearing twice in the Nightwave Cred Offerings.
Fixed Nora Night’s Transmissions appearing when loading between Nightwave episodes.
Fixed the “Watch All” option in The Wolf of Saturn Six only playing the first three dioramas.
Fixed previous Acts being visually marked as ‘Complete’ if the same Act was complete in Series 1. These Acts were also counting towards the 3 Recovered Acts, which prevented other eligible Recovered Acts if you had 3 of these affected Recovered Acts.
Eligibility for the Get Clem & Maroo Ayatan Treasure Hunt missions now resets at 00:00 Monday each week (same as Nightwave) instead of an arbitrary 7-day cooldown from whenever you last completed them. This ensures you have a chance to complete the missions within the weekly refresh of Nightwave.
Anyone who ran within the last 7 days will have their cooldown reset 7 days from when they ran it, and future resets will be Monday 00:00.
In Tuesday’s Hotfix we released a fix for a Nightwave bug that prevented proper tracking of Acts. This is Part 2 of that fix. Today’s fix retroactively provides missing Nightwave Standing to players affected by the issue we fixed Tuesday.
A bug existed in the progress tracking and completion status of 'Recovered' Acts. If a repeat Act appeared, this would cause it to be already-completed immediately when they appear in the UI and prevent players from earning their associated standing reward. We have more fixes coming on this - stay tuned!
Nora Night’s next broadcast follows the remarkable tale of Arlo. As the story unfolds, you’ll learn more about Arlo and his mission to soothe our deepest wounds.

Nightwave Series 2 Changes
Based on your feedback, Nightwave Series 2 introduces a suite of changes to reduce the time and tension of earning rewards. Some of these went live with Nightwave: Intermission, but let’s refresh our minds:
Playing Catch-Up! - We added a way for you to replay missed Acts from previous weeks, in case you have missed them!
De-grindification! - Less Weekly and Elite Weekly acts, but still giving the same amount of Standing as you would get from Series 1! In addition, we are looking to front-load Emissary Creds as an earlier reward for participating in the Series!
Act Changes! - We have lowered the Time and Wave requirements for some Endless Mission Acts, as well as lowering the cost of Ayatan Statues (this was implemented during Series 1). In addition, we have also removed the ‘with friends’ requirements from all of our Nightwave Acts!
New Acts! - Including the most important one... petting your Kubrow or Kavat! We also included some Acts for Kuva missions, Transmuting Mods, K-Drive Races and more!
Fixed ‘Everything Old is New Again’ and ‘Loyalty’ Nightwave Acts not awarding Standing.
Fixed the ‘Silent Eliminator’ Nightwave Act not failing when an enemy detects you, regardless of alarms. Step your stealth game up!
Hotfix 25.1.2 Nightwave: Intermission is now live on all platforms until July 5th at 11:59 PM ET.
What is Nightwave: Intermission?
Nightwave: Intermission is a 15 Rank evergreen reward Intermission! As we work towards content for Series 2, we wanted to release an interim gap to ensure rewards were accessible! Nora Cred can be acquired and used to purchase Nightwave Offerings during this mini-series.
Nightwave: Intermission Rank Rewards:
100 Nora Creds
3 Orokin Cells
Gamma Color Picker
50 Nora Creds
3 Forma Bundle
50 Nora Creds
EIDOLON EPHEMERA (not exclusive to this rewards table)
Nightwave: Intermission also brings a chunk of our planned Nightwave changes based on great feedback that were posted in the Dev Workshop, with the exception of ‘New Acts’, as we’re saving those for Series 2! The changes going live include:
Playing Catch-Up: Stored, Missed Acts!
When both Weekly and Elite Weekly Acts are completed for a week, a ‘missed’ Act, 3 at a time, from a previous week will be available to play and complete. Once you have completed all ‘missed’ Acts, they will no longer appear, only to be refreshed in the next week’s rotation.
Reduced to 5 Weekly Acts and 2 Elite Weekly Acts. While there will be less Acts overall, the rewards for these Acts will increase, so you will earn the same amount of Standing as you would in the previous Episode upon completion.
Changes to Existing Acts!
'With Clanmates / Friends' Act requirements have been removed completely
Increased Nightwave Standing from Weekly Acts from 3k to 4.5k and Elite Weekly Acts from 5k to 7k.
Reduced required Defense Wave Acts from 40 to 20 Waves.
"Kill Profit Taker with Friends" Act is now just "Kill Profit Taker".
Changed 'Complete 5 Sorties' Elite Weekly to 'Complete 3 Sorties'.
Complete any '60 minute Survival' Act reduced to 30 minutes.
Ayatan Socket requirement for Acts lowered from 5 to 3.
‘10 perfect Conservations’ reduced to ‘6 different perfect Conservations’.
‘10 Bounties’ reduced to ‘5 different Bounties’.
Increased the Sanctuary Onslaught Acts from 3 rounds to 8 rounds.
Removed the ‘Sortie with Friends’ Act.
The ‘Hold Your Breath’ Act has been changed to ‘Survive over 30 minutes in a Kuva Survival’.
Changed Nightwave Standing for Weekly Acts from 4.5k to 6k and Elite Weekly Acts from 7k to 9k.
This Standing increase is just for Intermission, in order to allow all 15 Ranks to be achievable in the given limited time duration. Nightwave: Season 2 will have the original change.
A note as to why:
As we count the days until TennoCon 2019, it’s evident that our ambitious goals for this year are needing all hands on deck, literally. Meaning that our plan to launch Nightwave Season 2 before TennoCon is going to be tight - and we don't want the downtime to be too long.
Thanks for your patience - Dreamers.
Ah, so up until Tennocon. Nice. Do we get 15 creds when we perstiege like last time?
Very good question!
There is no Prestige past Rank 15 in Intermission. Intermission is short, sweet, and simply an interim gap.
Fixed the ‘Day Trader’ Nightwave Act not being marked complete after meeting the requirements. The appropriate Standing was delivered behind-the-scenes, but the UI neglected to accurately display that. Completing the Index requirements again post Hotfix will correct your UI, but note that the Standing has already been delivered.
