Forge of Hephaestus Event
The Forge of Hephaestus was the spring event in 2013 which began on the 28th of March and ran for 12 days. The event gave players one assignment each day with a task to collect one of the ten different type of Salvage on each day.

Once the required amount of Salvage was collected, the player would be given some rewards, including an Aegis of Hephaestus. The Aegis would need to be opened by using a Technical Analysis Kit where the player would receive a valuable reward.

During the event, a 15% off Tuning Kits sale was active from the 29th to the 1st of April.


During the Exodus from Kobol, Hephaestus forged ancient artifacts to aid in the Twelve Tribe’s journey. Many of those artifacts were lost in the vastness of space, but they have been rediscovered. To open an “Aegis of Hephaestus”, salvage must be collected and analyzed with Technical Analysis Kits. So go out there, collect the necessary salvage and discover the mysteries of Hephaestus.

The event experienced several issues, some of which were fixed in a hotfix released on day 7 of the event. The event itself only ran for 10 out of the 12 announced days with no explanation for the premature end of the event however the event was delayed by 2 days for the hotfix so it was assumed the event included those 2 days and no extension was given to the event.

The Hotfix solved the following issues:

  • Mission item counter stuck
  • Mission completed but doesn’t reward the Aegis
  • Same mission was received multiple times during a day / new mission wasn’t available

Players found that if they had enough of the required salvage, they could move it from their Hold, to their Locker and when returning it back to their Hold, it counted towards the assignment and so players did not need to perform any combat to receive loot to complete their assignments.
