Quest Objective

Defeat the target enemy

Quest Description

We've received an emergency support request from our active mining unit in Aelio Plains. Numerous enemy readings in the area suggest a major assault is likely. We need all ARKS defenders to hurry to the site and defend the Mining Rig.

Overview

Mining Rig Defense: Aelio is an Urgent Quest released on August 18th, 2021, in which you defend a resource mining rig from enemy attack. Like normal Urgent Quests, there is an announcement prior to the event and the starting location is displayed on your map.

The enemy attacks come in successive Waves. Your goal is to work with other players to successfully defend the rig until the end of the final Wave. The structural damage will affect the rank you receive when completing the quest, however, it will not affect the reward items you receive.

Mining Rig Features

Accessing the Mining Rig will allow you to spend varying amounts of Earned Points for Support Modules such as Recover Structural Integrity and Barrier Shield. Mobile Cannons are powerful special equipment that you can call in via Delivery Devices.

Delivery Devices

DeliveryDevicesUQ.png

Delivery Devices are special teleporters found throughout the field during Defense Quests. Depending on how many Collectasigne points you've earned, you can make use of Mobile Cannons.

DOLLS Weapons

DOLLSWeaponsUQ.png

During Defense Quests, "DOLLS Weapons" will show up to cause problems.

  • Backhack: Adheres to the rig and inflicts direct damage.
  • Meldrum: Fires at the rig from a distance.
  • Barrigale: Impedes player movement.

Destroy these enemy weapons as soon as possible.

Collectasigne

CollectasigneUQ.png

Photon crystals known as "Collectasigne" will appear on the field as you do battle with enemies. When you collect them, they are stored as "Earned Points" that you can use at the Mining Rig and Delivery Device support modules. Points earned are shared by all players and everyone may make use of them.

Emergency Alerts

Emergency Alerts are sudden incidents in which multiple dangerous enemies such as DOLLS Weapons and Enhanced Enemies appear. It's important to check your radar map to assess the enemy's strength, find your allies, and calmly formulate a response.

Mobile Cannons

MobileCannonsUQ.png

Mobile Cannons are powerful special equipment that you can call in via Delivery Devices. While equipped, you are unable to use your normal weapons, and your player character's actions are restricted.

The Mobile Cannon can make the following actions:

  • Rapid Fire: Rapid-fire normal attack.
  • Charged Blast: Powerful charged shot with limited uses.
  • Boosted Glide: High-speed movement that uses PP.
  • Sidestep Bash: Strike an attack while dodging.

The Mobile Cannon has a time limit on its use, and when time is up, it is automatically unequipped. Selecting "Unequip" from the Sub-Palette or becoming incapacitated will also cause it to be unequipped.

Notable Rewards

Please note that due to the current Quest Storage capacity (0/100), higher rarity items are prioritized over lower rarity items and as a result, items such as Ability Capsules may not be present in the completion rewards after quest completion.
