Gorgonide Invasion is Live! 09/05/2016

The Gorgonides return in full force, resulting in certain Aelion archaeologists becoming uncomfortable!

Invasions are a large-scale activity available to all players who have received access to their Divine Form. Characters who successfully increase their rankings in the Laboratory for each invading army will be provided access to new Invasion-specific adventures. The event will require commitment from the players to reach their maximum potential: Equipment can be improved, new Symbols will be available, stats can be drastically increased, and you’ll even learn who your worthiest companions truly are!

While an Invasion is active, two special assignments will be available to your Adepts every 8 hours. The first will provide Gifts, bring new followers to your Order, and award 12 Faith Points to those that have unlocked their Divine Form. The second awards 10 Victor’s Medals which functions as a special currency used to buy various goods in the Invasion section of the marketplace.

Your loyal Adepts are not the only ones who will be busy with special assignments – during the Invasion you will have special tasks waiting for you as well! Theses missions will appear on the Divine Observatory globe and cycle every day to provide new opportunities depending on your level of research within the Laboratory.

  • Rank 1 – Sabotage In Reactor & Crashed Aircraft
  • Rank 4 – Lending a Hand
  • Rank 6 – Abandoned Fort Garune
  • Rank 8 – Icy Wasteland
  • Rank 10 – Defense of Fortifications
  • Rank 12 – Gorgonide Flagship
  • Rank 21 – Coming of Bedazzling Akonita

Completing any of the Invasion Adventures will net you special rewards for the maximum rating obtained!

  • C Rating – 10 Sparks of Divinity
  • B Rating – Reliquary containing Sparks of Insight
  • A Rating – 10 Sparks of Divinity
  • S Rating – A uniquely colored costume obtainable only from that adventure!

Please note that these rewards can only be obtained once!

Skyforge Gorgonides Invasion 2

Participation in Invasion Adventures will earn the player Eidoses which can be used in the aforementioned Laboratory to expand their Knowledge of the Gorgonides. This Knowledge, in turn, can be used on one half of the Gorgonide Atlas to increase your Resistances, increase general statistics, and further empower your Invasion symbols or talents.

Players who do not possess sufficient Rankings or the Divine Form can still participate in Aelion’s defense by visiting Adventures that are inhabited by Gorgonides such as:

  • Taron Power Station
  • Tarlen Aquifer
  • Fort Darlek

Skyforge Gorgonides Invasion 3

Completion of these Adventures will result in obtaining Tokens for that invading Army which, in turn, will unlock Sparks required for expanding one side of Gorgonide Atlas. The more tokens obtained, the more Sparks will be rewarded. Your current progression can be viewed at any time by selecting the Invasion’s marker in the Divine Observatory.

Some of the most notable nodes available in the Gorgonide Atlas include:

  • “Deadly Trap” – Your attacks can cause a ring of exploding arrows to appear around the enemy. In 4 seconds, they will close and explode in the center.
  • “Corrosive Coating” – When inflicting critical damage, you can apply an effect to the enemy that inflicts traumatic damage equal to 100/110/120/130% of your Luck, depending on the level of the Symbol. If used alongside Lacerated Wounds, the damage is equal to 200/220/240/260% of your Luck in total.
  • “Summon Enhanced Companion” – Using attacking abilities in combat, your companion may attack your target, drawing enemy fire to itself for 20 seconds. If used in conjunction with Summon Companion, a stronger version will appear that is able to use Energy Spike which inflicts significant damage to stunned enemies.
  • “The Might of Other Worlds” – Increases Might Efficiency by 3% per level of this Symbol

Additionally, upon completion of the first Invasion related activity players will be placed into an active Operation. Operations will provide players both personal goals as well as total progression goals for all players taking part. Meeting these goals allows the player to gain extra rewards and potentially move to a higher tiered operation!

Good luck!
