Emissary Derelict Assassinate – The New Zealot Boss Fight

Nightwave’s the Emissary has had its story come to an end, with Arlo basically being dead and a new infested cult joining the fray. Arlo was nothing more than a trick to get more people infected and infested and it worked brilliantly. Not only do we now have more Infested running around but now we have new bosses that we need to deal with, spreading their disease in Emissary Derelicts. Because we totally needed more mutagenic hive mind infestations running around. The conclusion to the Emissary was to be expected, but right now I’m pissed off with the new boss… [Continue Reading]

Icky Infested Invasions and Other Nightwave Messes

So part 4 of the Emissary, Nightwave’s current episode, just came out and it’s… kinda gross. Of course, there’s been this cult running around, worshiping a kid called Arlo who supposedly has healing hands, and he’s been healing a bunch of people and ended up becoming the head of an infested cult. Of course, because of said cult, there are nasty zealots running around who seem to think that if you don’t join, you should die, and they’re not very nice, especially since they use a lot if infested stuff. And of course, the Infestation is, uh, highly infectious. So… [Continue Reading]

On Finishing Nightwave Season 2

After a bunch of strangely easy tasks for week 6 of Nightwave, I have reached level 30 and obtained all the cool shit, which I immediately started using. Honestly though, this all went by so quickly. It doesn’t feel like week 6 of Nightwave and it doesn’t feel like Season 2 has been around that long! But yep, it’s been six weeks of genuinely quite simple tasks. Nightwave has been really good though. Most of the tasks have been pretty easy and definitely doable. Even the tougher tasks aren’t too bad. A 30 minute survival seems long but is easily… [Continue Reading]

Nightwave Episode 2 – An Infested Cult?

Nightwave Episode 2 is here and with it comes a slew of tasks and challenges very similar to Nightwave Episode 1 and Nightwave Intermission. There are 30 levels with various rewards and you earn standing by doing daily, weekly and elite weekly challenges to level yourself up. What is different this time, aside from the big rewards, is the theme. We finally got something new when it comes to Infested. A while Nightwave episode. Actually, I say that but it’s not really about the Infested themselves. In fact, Nora states in her very first opening presentation that the Infested is… [Continue Reading]

Nightwave Intermission – More of This, Please

The other day, I managed to hit level 15 on the Nightwave Intermission. I had managed to do every single task so far apart from the Complete 3 Sorties task (because you can only do one Sortie a day) and had them all finished the 25th. Now that I’ve finished with the Intermission, I can idly do any extra missions to earn additional Nora Creds which I can spend on more Nitain. I got my Eidolon Ephemera and now I can chill and wait for the next Nightwave. Except that I kinda hope the next Nightwave is just like this… [Continue Reading]

Nightwave – An Intermission

It seems as though the gap between Nightwave Episode 1 and Nightwave Episode 2 ended up being way, way longer than intended. To the point that it’s been impossible getting decent amounts of Nitain lately. To the point that my leftover Wolf Creds sat in my inventory for ages, until I realised I could sell them for 5,000 credits EACH and made myself a nice 1 million credits. In order to fix this, Nora Night has sent us an Intermission, a short Nightwave event until July 5th, which will keep us stocked up with Nora Creds and a few other… [Continue Reading]

WOLF HUNT!

Finally! Time for revenge! Time to fight the Wolf, the cowardly bastard that he is! One of my biggest complaints about Nightwave was how we so rarely ever got to fight the Wolf himself. I have captured tons of his fellow prisoners, the bitchy, molotov-throwing scumbags, but I only actually met the Wolf a grand total of 10 times, only twice of which he actually dropped any loot that was worth even picking up. But now, with the Wolf Hunt Tactical Alert, we can reliably fight the Wolf! The Wolf though does not go down easy though. There are two… [Continue Reading]

Nightwave is Kinda Naff, Really

We’re on week 9 of Nightwave. It feels like Nightwave has been around forever. Slowly plodding along, being in the background, compelling you to do random tasks for some strange reason. And frankly, after so long, my opinions on Nightwave have dropped lower and lower and lower. To the point that I miss random alerts. Random alerts weren’t always great. If you wanted Vauban for example, all you could do was wait and hope that you get an alert. There was no way around it, aside from buying things in the market. But not everything could be bought from the… [Continue Reading]

On Being Done with Nightwave Already

Wow. It’s only been seven weeks and I’ve just hit level 30 on Nightwave… Wait, it’s been seven weeks? Seven weeks of weekly and daily random tasks that have nothing to do with a bunch of escaped prisoners? Wow. Right off the bat, I don’t know if that’s a long time or not long at all. Nightwave has felt like it has dragged on forever, but it also feels somewhat short. I think a lot of this is because Nightwave resets on a Sunday evening (or about 2am on Monday for me) and I generally manage to get most of… [Continue Reading]

Finding and Fighting the Wolf of Saturn Six

You know that whole Nightwave thing? The thing about a Wolf? A Wolf of Saturn Six? Yeah, there’s a guy called the Wolf and he has a bunch of buddies and we need to kill or capture them all. Occasionally. That’s the whole theme of this Nightwave event. Kinda. While we do random tasks to please Nora Night, there’s a chance that Saturn Six Prisoners might spawn. You murder these guys and capture them like, well, capture targets. But occasionally, you might get a visit from the Wolf himself. When I say “occasionally”, I mean insanely rarely. By insanely rarely,… [Continue Reading]
