Each week we’ll roll out a new reward for the Featured Episode “Home.” The first completion of this mission on an account this week will grant a Featured Episode Weekly Reward Box. This box gives your choice of an Enhanced Universal Tech Upgrade or a Captain Specialization Point Box, which gives the character who opens it a Specialization Point. The Weekly Reward Box, Tech Upgrade, and Specialization Point Box are all Bound to Account, and may be freely traded between your characters. The Specialization Point Box requires the opening character to be at least level 60.
Continued encounters with the Hur’q necessitate the need for more Polaron based weaponry. To that end, a new Torpedo warhead has been created from a non-sentient Morphogenic Matrix that removes the kinetic components in favor of an explosion of Polaron energy. The Morphogenic Polaron Energy Torpedo launcher fires projectiles that deal heavy Polaron damage. Unlike most torpedo launchers, the Polaron Energy Torpedo Launcher's damage is enhanced by abilities and items that improve Polaron damage, and not those that improve traditional Torpedo weapons.
The Morphogenic Polaron Energy Torpedo is part of the Morphogenic Armaments set. Collect additional pieces from this set to unlock powerful set bonuses:
This 2 piece bonus reduces the recharge time of Fire at Will, Beam Overload, Scatter Volley, Rapid Fire, High Yield, Torpedo Spread, Mine Pattern Alpha, and Mine Pattern Beta.
The Morphogenic Matrix has completely integrated into the ship’s weapon systems, and is generating a positive feedback loop whenever activating certain Beam, cannon, Torpedo, and Mine attack enhancing abilities. This feedback loop imparts bonuses to various weapon systems.
Next week we’ll reveal week three’s reward for “Home.”
