The Crystalline Cataclysm Event returns this Thursday March 5th with a new reward or participating in 14 successful missions. The new Antiproton Torpedo is the first torpedo who’s damage can benefit from items or abilities that give bonuses to antiproton damage. What’s more interesting is that Trendy hints that there may be new wrinkles to this seasons event.
For the next three weeks, from March 5th at 9:00 AM PST to March 26th at 10:00AM PST, Federation, Klingon, and Romulan Republic Captains between levels 50-60 can queue up for our 10-captain “Crystalline Cataclysm” event to defeat the Crystalline Entity and earn one Crystal Shard every 20 hours. After collecting 14 of them, players can complete a new Event Reputation project to be rewarded with 50,000 Dilithium Ore, 500 Fleet Marks, 250 Marks of their choice (Fleet, Omega, Romulan, Nukara, Dyson, Undine, or Delta Marks), and the new Crystalline Energy Torpedo Launcher!
BONUS! Once the new, main reputation project is complete, a brand-new bonus 1-Shard project will become available to slot. Completing this will earn players 2,000 Dilithium Ore, 50 Fleet Marks and 35 Marks of their choice (Fleet, Omega, Romulan, Nukara, Dyson, Undine, or Delta Marks).
To participate and earn Crystal Shards, queue up for either the Normal or Advanced version of the event – a successful completion of either will award you with one Shard, in addition to the normal rewards.
Lastly, stay on alert, Captains! Recent intelligence reports reveal that there are a few new tactics the Entity and its allies are using during this event to thwart your attempts of destroying them.
I’m curious what new wrinkles they’ve added to the event this time. For players that utilize AP this sounds like it could be a nice addition to their arsenals. For everyone else, it’s kind of meh. But then again, you can’t knock the dil value 😉
