When out in the Plains of Eidolon during the night cycle, wild Vasca Kavats may be found typically in a pack of 3 to 6. If you encounter one of these packs and have a Kavat equipped, they will attack and infect your Kavat with the Vasca Virus; a sign of infection is a red pulse overlay on your Kavat.
Curing the InfectionEdit
A Vasca Kavat can only be incubated by using two Vasca Imprints. These can be acquired by using Genetic Code Templates on a Kavat infected by the Vasca virus. Kavats can be infected by being attacked by wild Vasca Kavats, which spawn on the Plains of Eidolon at night. A Kavat's infection will be apparent by it having a pulsing red overlay.
Note that the infection will be removed as the imprint is created; as such, the infection process needs to be repeated to get the required 2 imprints. This process can be streamlined by having two Kavats and infecting them both, allowing two imprint creations without having to wait or rush the first one. Unlike when using imprints of other Kavat or Kubrow breeds, Vasca Imprints are guaranteed to result in a Vasca Kavat.
Alternatively, the Vasca Kavat Starter Kit can be bought from the Market for 105. This bundle includes two Vasca Imprints, the 10 Kavat Genetic Codes, Incubator Power Core and Stasis slot required for a new incubation, as well as an extra Genetic Code Template and 6 DNA Stabilizers-
In addition to getting your new Vampire Feline friend there are also Vasca Kavat Floofs to acquire. Master Teasonai, in Cetus, sells the Vasca Kavat Lure for 3,000 as well as Vasca Kavat Pheromone Oota for 200. As said before, once finding the Echo location clear the area of all hostiles. The Vasca likes to change targets to a hostile, but has low health and may die. You can also hunt for Vasca floofs during the day - this could possibly be changed as it does seem to be the Vasca is a nocturnal animal (as stated in voice lines)
There are 3 breeds of Vasca floofs, each requiring 5 tags of the breed. The 3 breeds are:
- Possible bug: The infection or its visuals can become stuck even after imprinting, becoming impossible to remove. (seems to bix fixed with Hotfix 26.0.7)
