How many Tempests would you recommend having?


I currently have one.    I'm planning on eventually equipping my base with all Avalanche turrets.

    Wow.   I didn't know that many were recommended.     Maybe I should stock up on them with this event.    I expect to be able to get around 320k points.    I could get 4 more Tempests with that, as they're going for 75k each; or 3 and something else, like a Nightmare.    (I could use more Nightmares.)

    I never got a PvP medal payout.   How many medals are typically paid out?   Doran costs 300,000 medals.    The most medals I've ever had before has been about 16,000.

    I'd say 4 should do if put 1 each corner or under floating heavy platforms
    Quit at Cerberus 2 event, returned before Stormfront.

    It sounds like two is definitely not enough.      I only had one up until the last event, and now I have two.

    Don't forget, you need Point Defense Components for all of them.

    I got a 3rd one in the current event, and I'll get 1 Point Defense before the event is over.        That should be a pretty good step in the right direction.

    Only if your base is vulnerable to PK's and you have loads of xp to burn - even then, one is enough. ( you workshop the others in your base with some cheap level 1 component and attacker thinks you have point defence on all of them  )

      What's a PK, and what do you mean by having xp to burn?

    Tempests with point defense and liberators on bunkers pretty much make regular missiles useless.

    PK = Peacekeeper Missile.

    Point Defense Components cost a lot of Event XP, that's what he meant.
