What are The Corpus up to? It appears they have information we must uncover! Tenno, this weekend we need your help! Stay tuned for more word... Forum Post Phase 3 was completed on August 12, 2013 at 21:25. (UTC)
|"How do we hide it? The Tenno, with their Eyeless Slag, will squeeze it from our Scouts. They already know our methods from their capture missions. Data viruses distributed among our flock will not hold them off. Hiding the Grineer base and collecting our fees requires escalation. My plan is simple; gather our Scouts and Navigators and launch them into the Void. This has two benefits: The Betrayers will be hard-pressed to assemble the co-ordinate data, and if they do, they will place themselves at great risk aboard a conventional craft within the Void Storm. If the board approves, I will divide our flock into 3 groups and begin. It pains me to help the dogs in this way, but as always profit numbs the feeling"|

Event Mission Details
New Grineer Settlements have been discovered—your help is needed to unlock them! After our successful defense of the Corpus from the Fomorian Invasion, we received intel that the Corpus are in possession of information regarding the location of secret Grineer Settlements within the solar system. Infiltrating these Grineer Settlements is crucial – we must find the Corpus Scouts that hold this information. The Corpus have hidden these Scouts in the Void to escape us—we must capture them!
To enter the Void and find these Scouts, Tenno will need to collect Datamass and Cipher components by completing replayable special Alert Missions. Once they have received these components, they will need to obtain a Corpus Void Key blueprint within the Market. Using these components, they will visit the Foundry and build a Corpus Void key that will take them to the vessel located in the Orokin Void. The operatives must capture the Corpus Scout(s) on board the vessel and complete the mission. They can be found anywhere on the ship, and be marked via objective marker.
Once each capture is complete, every Tenno in the mission will receive a point. The amount of points you receive is based upon how many captives there are. Number of captives are based upon how many captures a team makes (1-5 varying with number of teammates and somewhat random). For example, if there are three members in the team, then there will likely be three captives. The reward for each Tenno will be one point for each capture the team makes. The number of points toward the event goal will be the number of Tenno times the number of captures (total points between the Tenno).
Lotus: "Diligence is key. Capture as many Scouts as possible, Tenno. We will track your progress and notify you when we have acquired all of the necessary information to piece together the exact location of the Settlements."
|To Build The
Corpus Void Key
- It is possible to capture multiple targets on a single mission.
- At certain points during the mission the game will display a graphical effect similar to that which occurs during the Orokin Tower introduction along with a flashing colored filter that covers the entire screen. This could be the 'Void Storm' referenced in the video. This will restore 25 energy to all members of the cell.
- Sometimes, even in a group of 4, you will have to get 3 or 5 scouts, getting 3 or 5 points accordingly.
- The Scout is oddly not effected by Vauban's Bastille, but is tugged by Vortex. Most likely DE's idea to make sure catching the scout is not too easy. This method helps in phase 3 as the Scout can become invisible and Vortex can assure he stays where he is during this time.
If we are successful in our mission: Rewards will be given after the event is completed.
- A new set of enemies and the Grineer Settlement (Phobos) will be revealed for all players!
- All contributing players will receive an Arid Fear Emblem (a contributing member is anyone with at least one point in this event!)
- Top clans (according to tier) will receive a statue for their Dojo
- Ghost Clan: 1-10 members
- Shadow Clan: 11-30 members
- Storm Clan: 31-100 members
- Mountain Clan: 101-300 members
- Moon Clan: 301-1000 members
- "Grandfathered Clan:" 1001+ people – score will be normalized based on total points and total clan members (not including Pending).
- Mods for contributing members:
- Mods will be available for discovery in-game at a later date in the form of a nightmare mode reward.
- These Mods are now available in-game via Nightmare Mode.
- Arid means "lack of water", which is a fitting name for the event as the Corpus fear that Phobos will be revealed to the Tenno.
- During The Hunt For Alad V, Frohd Bek would allude to this event in one of his speeches;
- "What happened to you Alad? I looked up to you. Your profits. Your products. A little madness and you throw it all into the Void."
- Source for leaderboards.
