    Viceroy armor upgrades

    You now have the opportunity to be able to upgrade your Viceroy Armor pieces. This will require that you obtain a very special item called Nanites. These little microscopic robots are all over Planet Arkadia and they are extremely evasive. There is no documented location, mined or creature drop that is recorded yet, so their whereabouts are unknown.

    The new armor has the following stats once upgraded.

    Durability: 3250
    Impact: 16
    Burn: 12
    Cold: 9
    Cut: 11
    Stab: 11
    Acid: 15

    And the Set bonuses

    3 Parts: 5 Percent Evade
    5 Parts: 10 Percent Evade
    7 Parts: 10 Percent Evade
    7 Parts: 0.2 Percent Increased Critical Hit Chance


    Sandrunner.PNG

    New Vehicle : The Sandrunner

    Designed for the long distances across sandy terrains, the Sandrunner is made for those who explore the unknown reaches of any planet. Engineered to travel through the mightiest of storms, the Sandrunner has one flaw, it cannot travel over water due to the displacement of gravity below it. Somehow, the density of water seems to break the anti-gravity law and scientists are discovering new ways to expand this technology for better applied purposes.

    The IFN have released this blueprint of the Sandrunner to the general public in the attempt at assisting in discovering more of the planet that has gone undocumented. for your convenience, you will be able to purchase the component blueprint from a local technician terminal.

    Also note, that the Sandrunner comes in 3 models

    - Sandrunner MKI
    - Sandrunner MKII
    - Sandrunner MKIII

    New Resources Discovered

    The Archelogical Society have discovered in an abandoned Smuggler crate, 4 new resources that have not yet been discovered in the past. The location for these are still to be discovered as no record indicated their whereabouts. If you have any information on their origins, please share the information with your fellow Arkadians.

    Bismuth.PNG

    Bismuth Fragment

    Elemental bismuth may occur naturally, although its sulfide and oxide form important commercial ores, although it was often confused with lead and tin, which share some physical properties.

    Bismuth Plating

    Refined Bismuth is by far one of the most beautiful metal alloys with an unusually low toxicity for a heavy metal. Refined, it is one of the highest atomic mass element that is considered stable.

    Bismuth Texture

    Bismuth is a brittle metal with a white, silver-pink hue, often occurring in its native form, with an iridescent oxide tarnish showing many colors from yellow to blue. Simply beautiful.

    Nanites.PNG

    Nanites

    According to research, Nanites are microscopic size nanomachines that operate together to modify and alter the complete structure of any material. Considered an extremely rare resource.

    There are three forms of Nanites to be discovered

    - Adjusted Nanites
    - Improved Nanites
    - Modified Nanites

    more importantly: Can you even upgrade the skullcandy edition? Since it has a different itemID that could potentially cause problems.
    Also will they be tradable after upgrades? I don´t think so.

    Set is too good, will probably have really low droprate on upgrade parts.

    Is this a hint at another continent or island being out there?

    Otherwise... to put it politely, this update has a lot of déjà vu to it.

    "Bismuth Fragment

    Elemental bismuth may occur naturally, although its sulfide and oxide form important commercial ores, although it was often confused with lead and tin, which share some physical properties."

    Are these going to start appearing as fruits & stones do? Or is this a new kind of resource to be prospected/surveyed/or treasure hunted?

    Looks like the Bill npc doesn't have any upgrades for me and offers to get a Viceroy armor (I own a SC edition).

    Save for a bug to be addressed in a subsequent patch, or them having thought up some fun obfuscation to show us the garden path, it could be that you need to have these nanites in your carried inventory first before you get the relevant dialog. I am only guessing here, but e.g. the Barman functions this way. He ain't saying a word unless you carry a treasure map. But this indeed being inconsistent with existing upgrade missions, an official hint would be appreciated. Else, non-initiative can be taken as a message as well ;)

    Hi guys.

    I'm looking into the issue with the upgrade quest not showing.
    Also to answer the question regarding Skullcandy Edition it can also be upgraded and will still be a Skullcandy Edition item :)

    Regards,
    Chris

    Question regarding the adjusted, improved and modified versions of the Viceroy, are they also account bound? If so that's going to be quite a big investment for something that you can't sell to at least regain part of the cost.
