The Twilight of the Gods event was the 2016 Winter Event running from 8 February 2016 to 15 March 2016.
This event involved players destroying golden asteroids or special event NPC Ships to gain uranium which could then be exchanged for items, ammunition or ship paints from the Event Shop (in game called either Baltar's Lab (for Colonials) or Simon's Lab (for Cylons). Uranium could also be obtained from successful p v p combat.
Twilight of the God's DescriptionEdit
"The gods are angry! An unknown vessell has been spotted and is causing unrest. The first reports suggest that this ship's powerful signals are radioactive, so special reinforced ships from both factions are preparing for battle. Defeat them and reveal the secret about this unkown enemy!
Take flight, attack golden asteroids and special event NPCs to help defeat this mysterious threat in the Twighlight of the Gods event, until March 15."
Golden Asteroids and Event NPCsEdit
Golden Asteroids are standard sized asteroids are grey and black rocks with a yellow/golden vein-like appearance around the surface. They appeared in a number of systems around the Veil Sector. These asteroids have 800 hullpoints, and destroying them would see the player gain around 50 units of uranium. Mining boosters would increase the amount of uranium received.
Also, on some occasions (but not all), on destroying a golden asteroid, a player would be rewarded with one of the following buffs:
These buffs lasted up to 5 minutes, and would be doubled to 10 minutes if the player was running a Divine Inspiration booster at the time they destroyed the asteroid.
Event NPCs are those non-player controlled ships which were specifically added to various systems for players to fight. These ships were Colonial, Cylon and neutral/drone faction ships. They were either strike or line ships.
Colonial Event NPCs
- Artemis (Level 125, Viper Mark III).
- Hera (Level 145, Raptor FR). This ship was equipped with nuclear missiles.
- Apollon (Level 160, Vanir).
Cylon Event NPCs
- Eileithyia (Level 125, War Raider Mark II).
- Ares (Level 145, Marauder). This ship was equipped with nuclear missiles.
- Kraken (Level 118, Fenrir).
- Demeter (Level 160, Fenrir).
The event NPCs all had weapon buffs and damage de-buff computers, with the line NPCs also having speed debuff computers. The strike NPCs had missile decoy launchers equipped. The line ships were equipped all with cannons as their weaponry. The strike NPCs often had approximately 3,250 hull points whilst the line ships were upwards of 11,500 hull points.
Hestia (Event NPC)
The Hestia was the biggest of all the event NPCs. This ship was part of the same group as the Drones. It had 50,000 hull points, was equipped with hyper accurate cannons, point defence systems, and nuclear missile luanchers which made it a very tough ship to fight. The nuclear missilesd launched by the Hestia were so powerful they could destroy any sline ship if only one missile hit its target.
Additionally, the Hestia was often accompanied by a squadron of other Drone ships , usually those encountered at a Nexus (i.e. Support Drone, ECM Drone, Artillery drone and Assault Drone). This meant you needed a squadron of players to be able to take down a single Hestia.
