Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The mission has been slightly reworked as part of the Season 8.5 update patch tied to the 4 Year Anniversary Event on January 30, 2014.
  • Although there is a single mention of the Hromi Cluster as the location of B'vat's secret base in this mission, the Briar Patch is named as the site of that base in all previous and subsequent instances and is also the location traveled to.

Strategy Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Keep your ship 4 km away from the gas clouds because they occasionally explode, inflicting about 25% damage in an Escort class ship at Level 10.
