    No, I'm not going to spill Kate's hideout at this juncture either ;)

    But there are a few things inquiring minds want to know of course, and since I was swirled around for 1 ped (cough) worth of some unknown stuff called Graphene Polymer today, I was prompted to gather what there is to know about it at the moment. So here are the first few puzzle pieces. Please feel free to add, and eventually this will become a tutorial of sorts, or so I imagine. But don't say too much. It might imperil your life.

    Thanks for info San. I'm much more interested in the process and stats for the unlimited version so I hope someone can add those.

    The names of the plates are a bit confusing - you need the I (L) - which look like they're looted in the new instances? - to make a Mk.I (L). With both named I it took me a while to work out that they were different.

    If your mission has the "Outsider" at the end, does that mean you haven't yet bought the Smuggler clothes, and is there a different mission for someone who has?

    Yeah I was curious about this "outsider" label. I have the Moonshine upgrade mission in my tracker and it doesnt include the outsider label and doesnt include an Arkoin cost. The other requirements are the same though.

    I guess it's just bad wording, or might be first infinite (L) item ;)
    "[...] As a Limited plate, Moonshine Armour Plate MK1 (L) will give you full protection at all times, regardless of its Trade Terminal value. [...]"

    It is just saying that it will keep it's full protection even it it loses most of its TT value. I.E. if TT value is at 6ped, it will still have its full protection value...until it reaches its minimum condition and then unusable. Whereas UL items lose protection when used and they lose TT value the protection drops as well until fully repaired again to restore the full protection rate.

    Hope that helps clarify :)

    I haven't bought my Smuggler clothes yet. Already suspected that the Arkoin fee was because of that.

    The dialog offers two options, the above is the result of taking option 1. I was not allowed to take option 2 as well. Not sure what happens when I abandon this, any disadvantages? I plan completing it as "insider" then, anyway.

    You can abandon and retake the missions but need to relog inbetween.

    Yw :)
    And sure, I notice it only after I already put that here.


    [repost] from Planet Arkadia Patch 2015.7.1 (15th Dec 2015)

    Tyvm for info! :)


    For these, who can't or lazy to go there:
    [Moonshine Armour Plate Mk1 (L)] = 1 [Moonshine Armour Plate 1 (L)] + 10 [Graphene Polymer] + 400 [Arkoin]
    [Smuggler Armour Plate 1]
    = 1 [Moonshine Armour Plate 1 (L)] + 10 [Graphene Polymer] + 1 [Graphene Composite]

    N.B. Missions repeatable, but bugged — if you aborted or abandoned it, you need to relog to be able take it again.

    [updated] Stats on plates:
    [Moonshine Armour Plate Mk1 (L)]
    Impact - 16 / Cut - 17 / Stab - 16 / Block Damage - 3% / Durability - 18000
    [Smuggler Armour Plate 1]
    Impact - 13 / Cut - 14 / Stab - 13 / Block Damage - 1% / Durability - 2500

    Guys, Smuggler plate mission is wrong. It also uses Moonshine plate 1 rather than the MK1 version.

    Cool info about Kate.
    But does anyone know anything about this mission?
    1. How to get Moonshine Armour Plate 1 (L) ?
    2. How to get Graphene Polymer ?
    3. How to get Graphene Composite ?
    4. Are we supposed to kill infinite amount of oratan miners too loot that basic plate or it was just joke for tamers?

    Moonshine plate 1 comes from the new smuggler instances
    Graphene polymer drops from UG mission mobs (and maybe others)
    Graphene composite hasn't dropped yet.

    I confess I am a bit worried about the availability of graphene composite which is yet to drop. The item description has it appearing in the UG. There has been a lot of mob grinding going on and we have seen a good amount of the polymer drop. There always seems to be mining happening. And yet no composite. My next thought will be to try the UG instances.

    I'm worried that perhaps the composite hasn't been added to the loot pool. Or the rarity is around that of the 4th dna parts, that took many months to drop. If so that's going to really push down the MU on the polymer. Ideally the composite should drop around 1/10 as often as the polymer.

    If looks are anything to go by, it seems that the Composite is a treasure. Perhaps not so many people doing TH in the Underground?

    Then there are these items which are already being traded, not sure yet how they fit into the picture. But there are parallel developments which may hint at the way ahead. The thought imposes itself that the basic idea comes from the same source as the recent Calypsian armour upgrades (Adjusted Nemesis/Vigilante) and that the process is coordinated.

    Moonshine Armour Plate 2 (L) - protection pen. 20, burn 20; dur. 18000
    Moonshine Armour (L) - protection imp. 35, cut 31, stab 31, pen. 20, burn 20, cold 20; dur. 15400
