I wanted to present you with a refresher for how VXP Weekends work. While the event is running, destroy Unidentified Raider Fleets for massive VXP payouts. “Unidentified Raider ???” will also spawn and pay out moderate amounts of VXP. Salvages and Elite targets will pay out 2x the regular amount of VXP.
What are VXP points?
Veterancy Experience Points (VXP) are acquired in battle, and can upgrade the turning speed and reload time of the participating ships by increasing their rank. This is accomplished by either by sending these ships into combat and earning experience, or by instantly spending gold to increase the rank of the specific vessel. The amount of VXP gained is determined by the amount of damage dealt and received.
Are there any other benefits of VXP?
Repair Specialists can be researched in the Naval Lab, and offer reduced repair times based on the VXP rank of a given ship. There are two steps in order to gain the reduced repair, the first is to open your Naval Lab, go the the "Specialist" Tab. There you can research the specialist specific to the type of hull you would like to see repair times drop for.
During the start of the event you will find High Level Targets spawn near the Relay Towers.
Unidentified Raiders Fleet 55 (Reaver Armada style target) will spawn the entire time. Existing Salvage and Elite targets will have 2x VXP payout the whole time. There are also “Unidentified Raider ??” targets with a greater pay out than Salvage and Elite Targets. They spawn near Draconian Bases and your base.
You will earn VXP for the damage to do to ships in the Unidentified Raiders targets, as well as the damage dealt to your fleet. Damage to buildings, turrets, and walls does not contribute to your VXP scores.
You will see your VXP points when you return your fleet to your base:
You will earn additional VXP but there is not a display of the increased earnings, for the event bonus.
