Arena of Sompek

Hello everyone,

here are some tips for the new Event Queue based on our experience earlier.

General Tactic
Kill everything and especially in higher waves, dont get onehitted :). If there are no meele enemies, always aim+crouch. Go out of AoEs!! (normaly red circles, cones or something 🙂 ) For higher waves or when you’re in trouble use Security Escort (Tactical) and Nukara Reinforcements – Elite Reprogrammed Drones to support you. And the most important, help each other 🙂

  1. Lightning Stage: hide under the bridge (laser area behind the round number^^), it wont hit and kill you there normaly. Only if one impact was placed directly infront of it, it could hit you inside.
  2. Hazard Stage: dont hide under the bridge, the fire will hit you there...

The build is tested and used after the Season 13 launch and performs very well. For Questions about this build you should contact him ingame (@peterconnorfirst). Enjoy the build:

And now a statement from the creator of this build:

Hey guys, Connor here.

Cannon build escorts and beam boats share most of the gear, trait and ability choices we deem right because both use energy weapons. There are however some discrete differences.

Most noteworthy one is the boff ability Cannon: Scatter Volley which works best in PvE to distribute damage with cannons in the front and tu...

Shuttle (Event) Builds

Hello everyone,

here are our suggestions for shuttle builds. The best working right now should be based on torpedos. These are mainly generic builds that could be adapted for other shuttles too since there are quite equal. The Danube itself (and the KDF counterpart) could be bought from the shipyard for a minor amount of EC.

List of great consoles:

  • Aceton Assimilator ( AoE dmg & aoe drain & draw aggro aka meatwall ^^ / Infinity Box)
  • Delphic Tear Generator (Coneaoe dmg / Infinity Box)
  • Defensive Drone Guardians (aoe faw dmg / Lockbox)
  • Dynamic Power Redistributor (dmg buff & heal / Lockbox, expensive for fed)
  • Lukari Protomatter Field (...
