Quest Objective

Defeat Apprentice the Vernal!

Quest Description

We've detected strong readings corresponding to Apprentice the Vernal below ground in the Epyk Desert of Alternate Dimension: Omega. Escort the Mobile High Output Photon Particle Cannon to the coordinates of Apprentice, the Vernal and use it to defeat her!
Maximum dealable damage is limited to 999,999.
You will fail the quest if you fail to fulfill the mission objectives, you exceed the time limit, or the Mobile High Output Photon Particle Cannon is destroyed.

Overview

This Urgent Quest is divided into three unique phases: a payload escort mission, an aerial shoot-em-up section and finally a standard on foot boss fight.

Escort Phase

A Photon Particle Cannon automatically moves throughout the caverns of the Epyk Desert, with players having to protect it from enemy ambushes.

The cannon cannot be interacted with, but can be stood on, like Buster Rams from Buster Quests.

The cannon will move automatically and will stop when enemies appear (a warning symbol will appear to indicate this). When all foes are eliminated, the payload will continue moving.

The cannon has a health bar, and as the cannon moves it will deplete. Enemy attacks will also damage the cannon's health. If it's fully depleted, the quest will end in failure. Crystals will appear throughout the stage and collecting them will restore a bit the cannon's health. Demonia Crystals are large breakable crystalline structures that will also heal the cannon when fully destroyed. Both crystals and Demonia Crystals appear throughout the stage, but hard to access areas / off-road areas can hide substantial amounts of crystals or Demonia Crystals.

All enemies appear in fixed positions when the cannon arrives at certain points. The phase ends when the cannon arrives at the deepest point of the cavern and it prepares to fire its laser towards Apprentice.

Aerial Phase

In this phase, all players are forced into a Dark Blast Luther, regardless of the player's progression with unlocking the Dark Blast. Like other vehicle-only battles, dying will force a player to respawn in 5 seconds. All of Luther's unlockable active abilities are unlocked for the duration of the quest's phase and entering this phase will not consume the player's own Dark Blast usage. In addition, all user settings regarding the visual display of one's own Dark Blast Luther and how they see other players' Dark Blasts is retained.

This phase ends when the target, Apprentice, is knocked down to the ground.

Ground Phase

At the end, players are back on ground and finish off Apprentice on the ground.

Additional Info

  • The mission description refers to Apprentice the Vernal as Apprentice, the Callow, despite the Vernal name showing up within the same description.
  • Apprentice seems to be referred to as a male (through the mission description and through Xiera), despite all Apprentice hosts seen being female and the boss having a female voice.
