Oceanid Invasion is Live - 27/06/2016

The Oceanids have regrouped, reorganized, and have every intention to wipe out all who live above the waves!

Invasions are a large-scale activity available to all players who have received access to their Divine Form. Characters who successfully increase their rankings in the Laboratory for each invading army will be provided access to new Invasion-specific adventures. While it is not possible to “lose” an Invasion that does not have an accompanying Avatar, the event will still require commitment from the players to reach their maximum potential: Equipment can be improved, new Symbols will be available, stats can be drastically increased, and you’ll even learn who your worthiest companions truly are!

While an Invasion is active, two special assignments will be available to your Adepts every 8 hours. The first will provide Gifts, bring new followers to your Order, and award 12 Faith Points to those that have unlocked their Divine Form. The second awards 10 Victor’s Medals which functions as a special currency used to buy various goods in the Invasion section of the marketplace.

Your loyal Adepts are not the only ones who will be busy with special assignments – during the Invasion you will have special tasks waiting for you as well! Theses missions will appear on the Divine Observatory globe and cycle every day to provide new opportunities depending on your level of research within the Laboratory.

  • Rank 1 – Kanter Aelerium Plant & Crashed Aircraft
  • Rank 4 – Lending a Hand
  • Rank 6 – Abandoned Fort Garune
  • Rank 10 – Oceanid Incubator
  • Rank 15 – Evacuation
  • Rank 20 - Flagship of the Oceanids
  • Rank 30 - Coming of Tol-Monter

Completing any of the Invasion Adventures will net you special rewards for the maximum rating obtained!

  • C Rating – 10 Sparks of Divinity
  • B Rating – Reliquary containing Sparks of Insight
  • A Rating – 10 Sparks of Divinity
  • S Rating – A uniquely colored costume obtainable only from that adventure!

Please note that these rewards can only be obtained once!

Participation in Invasion Adventures will earn the player Eidoses which can be used in the aforementioned Laboratory to expand their Knowledge of the Oceanids. This Knowledge, in turn, can be used on one half of the Oceanid Atlas to increase your Resistances, increase general statistics, and further empower your Invasion symbols or talents.
Players who do not possess sufficient Rankings or the Divine Form can still participate in Aelion’s defense by visiting Adventures that are inhabited by Oceanids such as:

  • Port Naori
  • Ardos Monastery
  • Thais Temple
  • Thorneus's Camp
  • Mare Sacro Monastery

Completion of these Adventures will result in obtaining Tokens for that invading Army which, in turn, will unlock Sparks required for expanding one side of Oceanid Atlas. The more tokens obtained, the more Sparks will be rewarded. Your current progression can be viewed at any time by selecting the Invasion’s marker in the Divine Observatory.

Some of the most notable nodes available in the Oceanid Atlas include:

  • “Excitement of Victory” – If the target has less than 30% of health left, your damage to them is increased by 5/10/15/20/25/30%.
  • “Water Barrier” – When taking damage at a distance of over 20 yards, you gain an effect that reduces Ranged Damage for you and your allies by 25%.
  • “Elastic Shell” – Creates a temporary shield around you that absorbs a significant amount of damage and protects against control effects for 4 seconds. The effect will activate once your health drops below 25% and will not activate more than once every 45 seconds.
  • “Deadly Impulse: Slow” – Your attack may create an energy pulse which will chase the enemy and slow them down if it hits them. When used together with Deadly Impulse: Damage, both effects are applied simultaneously.

Additionally, upon completion of the first Invasion related activity players will be placed into an active Operation. Operations will provide players both personal goals as well as total progression goals for all players taking part. Meeting these goals allows the player to gain extra rewards and potentially move to a higher tiered operation!

Good luck!
