    Fleet Action: “The Big Dig” - a quick rundown

    Post by Ikari_Zaku on Wed Mar 31, 2010 11:33 am

    Ladies and Gentlemen of the Firefly Fleet based out of Serenity Station, let me start by saying this one is Epic
    folks. Or at least it was for me when I ran through it with my alt
    who is a Commander Grade 3 and this mission is given at the commander
    level (and it is repeatable, once I had finished it, Admiral Yanishev
    gave it to me again or you can just pop over and talk to the USS
    Phlox in the Rator Sector in Psi Velorum to get the mission.) and it
    took me and the random group I was with over three hours to finish.
    Of course the length of time was a result of our uncoordinated attack
    methodology. Had we tried to coordinate even just a little, this
    could have been a 90 minute tops mission.




    The Map: Can you say, “But Doctor
    Jones, I don't want to go into the Temple of Doom?”

    At the heart of this map is a nicely
    done, Mayan styled pyramid that is referred to as “The Temple”
    and that is surrounded by deep trenching to aid in the archeological
    feel of the mission and making this a multi-tiered level. Oh by the
    way, this map is huge, encompassing several virtual acres. There
    were only a handful of respawn points that I found, and they are well
    out of the way and you will have to solo your way through at
    least three mobs of the unfriendly kinds to get back to the action.




    The Unfriendly Kinds: Romulans and
    Remans are packed into this mission like sardines in a tin. Neither
    are happy that they had to talk time out of their busy Empire
    rebuilding schedule to come down and chase you off this planet.




    The Job: First thing you'll be tasked
    with is rescuing 20 hostages (archeologists) from their captors,
    you'll find the hostages in the trenches, highlighted by the yellow
    force fields holding them in place. Once that's been accomplished
    you and your amalgam of mayhem will be asked to kill 125 Roms and
    Rems. Yes that's right One Hundred and Twenty Five Romulans and
    Remans must die for you to move on to the next task, fortunately
    there is no shortage of either on this map and this was actually the
    quickest thing for my group to accomplish. Third on the agenda (once
    the homicidal rage is knocked out) is to secure 20 artifacts with
    shielding. This is where the coordination really comes in to play,
    you have to go back to the locations of the hostages and pick up
    “shield generators” and then go up to various levels of the
    Temple and secure the funky looking artifacts. The trick here is
    that one player can only carry one shield generator at a time. Had
    my group gone through the trenches en mass, having each player pick
    up a generator and then hit the Temple in a cyclonic fashion as a
    swirling whirlwind of rage we could have really owned this mission
    quickly; instead players would look at each other and wonder what the
    hell was going on and why no one could accomplish this task by
    themselves (hordes of Romulan and Reman mobs). Finally you will be
    asked to kill off 10 Romulan Captains and 10 Reman Captains. These
    guys will be hanging out around the Temple and will not be too hard
    to find. Once you've done that it's time to beam back to the camp
    site and collect your reward for the mission. I got some descent
    armor for my Commander level toon and I didn't appear in the top 15
    players, so if you can dish that damage some good swag may be there
    to be had.




    Biggest Tip for this mission:
    Coordinate attacks and objective with at least a few people in map.

    Like Ikari says, the biggest momentum and character killer is coordination or lack there of. This one might be fun to run through as a fleet though.

    Nice run down! Ran through this very late last night, took us over 3 hours, almost 4, due to so few of us actually coordinating our efforts. I had a very had time when dying getting back, dying again about half the time, to the what group we had.
    Would love to do this as a fleet...we could just totally own it if most of us on vent!
    Have fun out there!

    I've been through it a couple of times now, so I kinda mostly sort of know wha's up with this mission. I'll be on around 5 pm Friday night, with either my LCDR Science guy or my RA5 Engineer guy for a run through anyone in the fleet wants a run through.

    I need to do this as well. Unfortunately I am working long hours even on the bank holidays to get a projects deadline met so I'd need a set time to put aside for it.
