Mechanoid Invasion is Live - 07/11/2016

The Mechanoids have returned to Aelion to in another attempt to wipe us from existence.

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. While it is not possible to “lose” an Invasion that does not have an accompanying Avatar, the event will still 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 – Screening Field Generator & Defense of Fortifications
  • Rank 4 – Lending a Hand
  • Rank 6 – Crashed Aircraft
  • Rank 8 – Crash Site
  • Rank 12 – Flagship of the Mechanoids
  • Rank 15 – Coming of Integrator & Integrator’s Avatar

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!

Participation in Invasion Adventures will earn the player Eidoses which can be used in the aforementioned Laboratory to expand their Knowledge of the Mechanoids. This Knowledge, in turn, can be used on one half of the Mechanoid 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 Mechanoids such as:

  • Factory 501
  • Saiban Archipelago
  • Palon Prototype Plant
  • Facility 902

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 Mechanoid 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 Mechanoid Atlas include:

  • “Electrostatic Attacks: Damage” – Enemies struck by your Impulse charge will take damage in 2 seconds if they do not move.
  • “Electromagnetic Pulse” – Impulse damage inflicted to shields is increased by 25%
  • “Dazzling Flare” – Taking damage has a chance to blind all enemies within an 8 yard radius.
  • “Shock Emitter” – In PvP, your attacks reduce damage inflicted by the enemy by 15/17/19/21/23/25% and may decrease their control resistance by 10/12/14/16/18/20%. The amount is dependent on the Symbol’s level.
  • “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!
