Typhon's Revenge Event

Typhon's Revenge was 2017s in-game 6th Anniversary Celebration Event. It ran from 16 February 2017 until 30 March 2017. This event (with slight differences) was previously run from 14 December 2015 until 14 January 2016.

Typhon's Revenge In-game DescriptionEdit

For more than a year, it seemed like our pilots had beaten back the danger emerging from the darkness, but recently prophets in both factions have once again been suffering horrifying dreams involving Typhon, a mythical wreaker of chaos and destruction in ancient Kobol lore. The legend tells us that Typhon will one daay "return from the darkness, claim victory from defeat and rain heavenly judgement upon the children of God, who dared sullly his name."

Get ready for Typhon's revenge, attack white asteroids and redeem Typhon's shards in the event shop now.

Typhon's Comets and Typhon's AsteroidsEdit

White Asteroid

Typhon's Asteroid

Typhon's Asteroids are standard sized asteroids that are grey and black rocks with a white vein-like appearance around the surface. They appeared in 22 systems of the Veil Sector. Destroying these 500 HP asteroids had a 75% chance to triggering a Typhon's Comet to appear and rewarded the player with one of the following items:
  • Typhons Shard Icon 1x Typhon's Shard
  • Typhons Shard Icon 2x Typhon's Shards
  • Typhons Shard Icon 3x Typhon's Shards
  • Carrier Cannon Buff Icon 10% Increase Weapon Damage buff
  • Carrier Hull Buff Icon 10% Increase Health Points buff
  • Carrier Speed Buff Icon 10% Increase Speed buff

The buffs lasted 5 minutes and any mining bosters used would increase items received. Divine Inspiration boosters would also effect the length of the boosters. Any shards were automatically placed in a player's hold, whilst any buffs would activate immediately when gained. Destroying a Typhon's Astreoid wwill also gain a player 250 experience points.

Typhon Comet

Typhon's Comet

Typhon's Comets were large rogue blue rocks with a blue dust trail which had a total of 10,000 health points and once destroyed by a player, they would drop 3 Typhon's Shards. These shards were automatically placed in a player's hold. Players contributing towards the destruction of a Typhon's Comet will also gain 500 experience points upon its successful destruction.

The comets could be easily tracked by viewing them on the local Map as their object icon would move across the map as they drifted through the system. They drifted at a speed of 70 meters per second and instantly destroyed anything in its path, whether it be a players ship, outpost, platform or asteroid, whilst leaving the comet unaffected. If it had destroyed a player, they lost all of the durability for that ship, requiring a very costly full repair. Player's ships that are destroyed due to colliding with a comet will find their ship's equipment at 0% and they will have to repair before they can undock from any Outpost.

If a comet reached the boundary of a system or should it collide with a planetoid, the comet would explode and any attacking players would lose out on any item rewards.

Guardian BasestarEdit

Guardian Basestar No 01

Guardian Basestar

The Guardian Basestar was an older generation Cylon Basestar (first Cylon War vintage) which had been captured by the same beings that control the drones. This 100,000 hull point ship could be found in a number of systems, flying through a system and then jumping to another system. Destroying the Guardian Basestar would see a player rewarded with between 10-15 Typhon's Shards.

This ship is only armed defensive weapons, namely with 2 x point defence systems, which will be on whilst it is flying through a system. However, it will also periodically launch a wave of Drones similar to those launched by a Command Nexus (i.e. it would launch Support, ECM, Artillery and Assault Drones) which are it's main offensive armaments.

Unlike Typhon's Comets and Typhon's Asteroids, if attacked but not destroyed, the Guardian Basestar will commence hull repairs if it goes out of threat thus regaining hull points. Additionally if it is under attack but reaches the points in it's flight plan where it FTL jumps and then jumps away undestroyed, players will not gain any rewards. Rewards are only granted to players who inflict damage on the Guardian Basestar which help lead to it being destroyed in the same system.
