Captains,

Bishop, the new Legion engineer, has helped build up the Legion defenses. Through their hard work and innovations, the Legion is expanding their colonization of the Glowing Sea. It’s going to take a lot of fire power to push them out of their new bases.

Speaking of new fire power a few new ships have been spotted on the seas. The first is the new Draconian garrison ship the Inferno Dragon. This ship has the “Dragon’s Breath” aura which deals damage to any enemies within the aura, which combines with the Twinfire Rockets to activate it’s Flamethrower effect. Forsaken have finished their Chameleon CR Prime.  This new generalist flagship will increase the impact the rest of the Chameleon ships will have in siege targets.

Both of these new ships as well other new items are available for those who are able to penetrate the Legion’s defense during Bishop’s Rock.



Event Info

The event starts Thursday, February 15th @ 9am and ends Monday, February 19th @ 9am.

“Bishop’s Rock” will begin on the following worlds at the following times:

  • World Alpha: 9AM PST

  • World Beta: 10AM PST

  • World Gamma: 11AM PST

  • World Delta: 12PM PST

  • World Epsilon: 1PM PST

At the start of the event for each world, the following features will be disabled:

  • Relocation

  • Sector Threat

  • Base Parts targets

  • Gantry targets

  • Daily Campaigns

  • Friends lists limited to 10

These features will become disabled at the start of the event for their respective worlds. For example, at 9am PST, relocation will be turned off in World Alpha but will be available for all other worlds. However, you cannot relocate to World Alpha once relocation has been turned off for that sector.   

Goals

Bishop’s Rock is the second event in the Dawn of the Legion event cycle. Targets include Fire Archer Turrets, Shell Launcher Turrets, Legion Cannon Turrets and Legion Blunderbuss. The new targets also include emitter drops which have three types: Offense, Defense and Burn.  These targets are designed for your Siege fleets.

Burn Emitters
These emitters deal damage in an aura.
