“You're not supposed to be in here! You're going to ruin the surprise!”
The following section contains spoilers.
The Sentient Anomaly, also known as Sentient Ship, is a SentientTile Set introduced in Update 27.0 which acts as a Point of Interest and is encountered only in Veil Proxima missions on Empyrean. The ship will occupy a node on the Veil for 30 minutes, indicated by a red flashing symbol, after which it will disappear. Another ship will appear after a random time interval between 2 hours and 2 hours and 45 minutes.
While active, the Sentient Anomaly will encompass a mission objective in the Railjack mission (similar to a Pulse Turbine or Shipkiller Platform). Cephalon Cy will request that the Tenno investigate the Sentient presence in the area at the beginning of the mission. Once the Tenno enter the ship, Cephalon Cy instructs the Tenno to "sterilize" it of Sentient life as a means to prevent Grineer exploitation. Once the objective has been complete, Cy requests the Tenno to return to the Railjack.
For every Sentient Anomaly POI that you complete you’ll earn a new Anomaly Shard; a shard ripped from a Sentient Anomaly in the Veil Proxima!
As mentioned in 27.0.11, we wanted to implement a more token based system to obtain the Tenebrous Ephemera that we removed from the drop table. An Anomaly Shard is 100% guaranteed at End of Mission for every Sentient Anomaly POI you complete.
Little Duck + Exotic Goods
Little Duck is no stranger to Exotic goods - an Amp assembler and Toroid master, the strong and the strange are what she makes her business on. Her interest in Anomaly shards allows you to access new Exotic Goods:
ALL Sentient Captura Scenes
Sentient Captura Scenes have also been removed from the drop table and will be purchasable from Little Duck exclusively.
TEMPORARILY removed the Tenebrous Ephemera as a drop from Reinforced Sentient Containers aboard the Sentient Anomaly in Veil Proxima. The drop method is causing numerous issues in terms of connectivity stability and player frustration. We’re going to be changing the acquisition method that won’t involve a direct drop rate in a near future Hotfix/Update, and will instead be closer to a token system (complete X Anomaly missions to buy Ephemera from a vendor).
The Tenebrous Ephemera will be coming back as soon as possible in a better acquisition method
