    The idea in itself is good. However where I am hunting for my test now it looks like over half of the mobs are Mutated. Since I've deceided not to hunt the Mutated for the testing it's kind of a bother having to avoid so many of them. I am hunting Halix at Dauntless Fire Acadamy, don't know how it is for other species at other locations.

    PS. "scan and collect data" means kill and loot right?

    I'm interested to know how the system determines who gets Musca and who gets Pixie? Do I have to been Ark-born to get Musca? or is it enough if I do all my discipleship and graduating here?

    Yeah, has more HP but doesn't count for the mission, like a boss :)

    Sounds most logical. I wonder is it UL or L. Probably UL, but you never know...

    I just graduated like a week ago and recieved the Pixie. really wish I gotten the Musca because I like it better than that yellow ugly looking Pixie. that's why I'm going for the Viceroy if only I could get some yellow paint.

    Yes, for those who aren't familiar with contaminated zones, I will repeat: you CANNOT enter the lootable zone unless you choose to spend 5 peds to buy a anti-toxic shot, then manually inject yourself. It's not like space where you can easily go or be summoned without realizing it's lootable.

    Everyone against PVP or bonded armor, remember that there are other players who don't share your opinions and actually enjoy those things. If you want the A-team to add the features you like, we have to allow them to add the features that others like too. The contaminated zone was necessary not just because players requested it but because of MA's rules regarding certain rare ores. I haven't seen anything bad in this update so far other than a few bugs of course. I was initially shocked at the size of the contaminated zone but after seeing how the A-team was kind enough to make some extra, mob-free arctic areas (with very cool scenery btw) it's all good.

    Howdy Bandido! Maybe sell the Adj Pixie set, then buy an Adj Musca set when they start showing up for sale.

    It surely will take some time for Adj.Musca to drop in price because of novelty and limited supply in the beginning.

    I hunted Halix at "night". The mutants glow so are easy to avoid. I didn't. The Mutants do not toward the missions, either.

    pre-patch they were still bugged, but a step closer to looking normal now.

    Great update guys, thank you.. about time those PvP zones got put in too.

    Nice idea with the promo armor too, hope that opens more doors...

    .... but could it not be even better on decay?.. maybe a slighly higher durability than 3k?.. it's not like we're going to sell it :huh:

    I'm not complaining..

    The 'don't like pvp don't go there' argument is a load of BS.

    You either go there (or get someone to do it for you) or miss out on using any type of decent L fap (crafter MUST have ore from pvp and you can only loot good L faps in pvp). You can also forget about tiering your weapon and using damage enhancers.

    MA effectively force us to use pvp, so don't give me this shit about don't go there if you don't like it.

    People just don't understand the overall need of the PvP zones. I'm pretty sure that those that are complaining are ignorant to the benefits of having them there. I just wished that complaints were more productive instead of coming across as tantrums from mis-behaved children.

    "PvP?.. NOOo.. that's it.. I'm LEAVING.. look at me.. I'm going.. someone hold me back!!.. I'm TTing my crap.. I'm getting on a ship"

    If you're new to the game and the platform, I'll explain.. The list of items that currently drop in loots is incomplete. MA puts restrictions on certain items and kind of requires them to drop in PvP zones. If you ask around, the handful of dedicated Arkadian crafters will tell you, there are recipes that cannot be completed due to a lack of availability of materials. So taking the position of "I'm quiting because there's PvP now" is a tad ignorant and down right selfish. If you want a better Arkadia, a more complete Arkadia, you need to have those zones there.

    You want to mine/hunt there, mine/hunt there. If you succeed, it will be most likely be worth your while.. If you get cap'd, then you're not worthy of being there and by-pass it.

    Man, it's like sharing the planet with a bunch of teenagers. The PvP zones are needed, simple. No level of complaints, whines, threats to leave, promises to stay, will motivate anyone into crippling the planet's ability to drop these items. Save yourself the finger mileage and quit the whines and instead post more constructive feedback. It's just hard to respect whiners.

    Personally if you want to complain that you're leaving, as much as I'd hate to see people go, don't let the door smack you on the ass on the way out. All this negativity can potentially have undesired effects on the planet's evolution and development.

    Makes you wonder how they're leaving since most don't go into space because it's PvP.

    You want to whine?... That's what PCF is for. :cowboy:


    Again, thank you Ozi, Cyrus, and the crew... this update totally rocks.

    This wall of text says only that the PvP is imposing to us, but does not say why this is necessary.
