o Five new Clan boss camps for Omni Players to tackle.

o Five new Omni boss camps for Clan Players to take on.

o Neutral players will be able to fight all of the bosses.

o New Missions will be available that offer rewards for taking down these bosses and their cohorts.

o The military units have been stockpiling new shipments of unique Dreadloch weapons and items that players will be able to secure from defeated bosses.

- New items for purchase with Victory Points.

o New OFAB Helmets that use a new defensive proc system. Wearing the item grants an inherent % chance every time you are hit that casts a short defensive buff.

o New PVP orientated AMS / DMS transfer nanos for Traders.

o Extension of the divest and plunder lines for Traders.

o New PVP orientated damage and healing debuff nanos for Meta-Physicists.

o New Shield nano for Meta-Physicists.

o New PVP orientated version of nano shutdown for Meta-Physicists.

o New init debuff nanos for Bureaucrats.

- New sign-up terminals for the battlestations placed out to make it easier for people to sign up for the battlestations. The new terminals are found at the following locations:

o Levels 20-49 Borealis (Main gate).

o Levels 50-74 Borealis (rear gate).

o Levels 75-99 Newland (near whompas).

o Levels 100-124 Newland (Near front gate).

o Levels 125-149 Outside Newland.

o Levels 150-174 Outside Newland.

o Levels 175-199 ICC.

o Levels 200-209 Unicorn Landing pad.

o Levels 210-220 Unicorn Landing pad.

- Tweaked the way the queue system works to ensure more consistently even sides in the battlestation.

- Added a loyalty system to lock out people from the battlestation if they continually refuse invites or leave before the end of the battle you will get locked out from the battlestation.

o All players start with a loyalty score of 10.

o Receiving a battlestation invitation deducts your loyalty score by one.

o Completing a battlestation (win or lose) adds two to your loyalty score, up to a maximum of 10.

o If your loyalty score reaches 0 you will not be able to enter the battlestation queue.

o A duty mission will be available to increase your loyalty level again if it falls to 0. Rumors that it may involve picking up trash in Borealis may not be unfounded.
