New Features[edit | edit source]

New Featured Episode: Scylla and Charybdis[edit | edit source]

Re-Engineering[edit | edit source]

  • Re-Engineering gives the ability for players to re-roll some mods in order to craft and modify certain pieces of Equipment to greater satisfaction.
  • A new resource has been added to the game to make this system work: Salvage.
    • Salvage is rewarded to Captains from salvaging equipment obtained from loot drops.
    • Salvaging a piece of equipment will destroy it and reward an amount of Salvage based on the equipment’s Mark and Quality.
    • Salvage cannot be traded between characters.
      • The amount of Salvage the captain possesses may be viewed on the Assets tab of the inventory.
    • The cost of Re-Engineering a piece of equipment will be dependent on how many available mods the player has chosen to unlock.
      • The overall price to randomize increases with each mod that is unlocked, but the cost-per-mod goes down.
        • This translates as a cost efficiency bonus, at the cost of additional randomization.
