Welcome back, Dreamers.
The Nightwave weekly bounties change every Sunday at 12 midnight GMT (or Monday morning, if that’s your preference), so keep your eyes out every week after that time for our weekly update – letting you know the activities you’ll need to complete for the week (note this will not include daily challenges, of course).
Note: this is the last week of Series 3! So make sure you spend all of your credits!
Thanks, as always, to Wrathoc for his never-ending awesomeness.
This Week's Bounties
The following challenges are in place until Midnight Sunday 24 January/Monday 25 January:
- Complete 6 Different Perfect Animal Captures in Orb Vallis
- Kill 30 Eximus
- Complete 3 Different K-Drive Races in the Orb Vallis
- Complete 3 Rescue Missions
- Complete 3 Rescue Missions (yes, this act is on our boards twice, and we have reports that this is bugged and not registering)
- Complete a Defence Mission reaching at least Wave 20 (Elite)
- Kill the Exploiter Orb (Elite)
Complete 6 Different Perfect Animal Captures in Orb Vallis: Pretty straightforward, but somewhat time-consuming. If you have Ivara, I’d recommend bringing her, as she can sleep multiple critters with a single sleep arrow. Otherwise, you’ll just have to keep chipping away until you have 6… Doesn’t really combine well with other missions, except perhaps mining, which you can do while you explore, but that will involve juggling tools.
Kill 30 Eximus: This won’t take TOO long, but can likely be easily knocked off passively while doing other challenges. If this happens in the same week as the “Kill 100 Eximus” Elite, then you are laughing – 8000 rep for 10-15 mins of work. Same tips apply – if you want to smash it out, do a high(ish) level Survival and stay for as long as you can.
Complete 3 Different K-Drive Races in the Orb Vallis: Not so hard, provided you’ve unlocked Fortuna. Head into the Orb Vallis (perhaps go in Solo if you have no other Acts this can be perfromed alongside). If you equip your K-Drive and open your map, the Race locations willbe marked. Note there are only 5 per day, which refresh Daily, but you only need to do 3, so it won’t take too long. Can work nicely with fishing, mining, or bounties Acts on the Orb Vallis.
Complete 3 Rescue Missions: Super duper easy – you could probably smash this out in 5 minutes. Choose a low-level, simple Rescue – rush to target, rush to exit, done. Not likely one that needs to be combined with any other challenge, but keep it in mind.
Complete a Defence Mission reaching at least Wave 20: Not too hard, you just have to last a long time. That many waves is going to be at least half an hour, so buckle in – and remember, all you need to do is survive, so you should be fine with a good group. You can smash out a bunch of other passive challenges as well, so make sure you bring the right weapons to get multiple jobs done (if they are on the menu for that day/week).
Kill the Exploiter Orb: Still one of the most enjoyable bosses in the game. This one will take time, and for lower rank players, some friends, but like the Ropalolyst… not to difficult!
