Still, it was going to happen. Only question was how long until DE got around to dealing with it. At least they didn't let this go on as long as the Synoid Gammacor foolishness.

But but but that broke the game! It removed that weapon ENTIRELY!   why so serious?

All I know is that I have a new line in my sig.

I should get back to nature, too.  You know, like going to a shop for groceries instead of the computer.  Maybe a condo in the woods that doesn't even have a health club or restaurant attached.  Buy a car with only two cup holders or something.

Every single time I think I'm about free...

So, a second event on top of the current one going on.  This one rewards a full set of kubrow stuff and the wraith strun comes back out of the vault.  There's also a promo code for a credit booster:  DENOFKUBROW

There is also an eagle mod promo code floating around: TennoSkoom (I hope that's right...) I got two archwing mods that I can use out of it so that's cool...

Every single time I think I'm about free...

So, a second event on top of the current one going on.  This one rewards a full set of kubrow stuff and the wraith strun comes back out of the vault.  There's also a promo code for a credit booster:  DENOFKUBROW


So the Kubrow thing - the mission is on Earth, and you can only equip a melee weapon.  The special twist is...it's foggy.  Foggy means the first time I ran the mission I went, "Uh is my video card starting to go?"  Not foggy like, vapor affects no no, everything is desaturated and flat with a lot of things seeming to be missing textures.  It certainly makes it difficult to see.  The tileset contains low-ish level (around level 25 I think) grineer mobs - specifically: powerfirsts, scorpions, butchers and flamethrower guys.  In other words, nothing that is going to actually shoot at you.  Which is good because you can't see very far and they just sorta materialize out in front of you.

Then there are the feral kubrows.  I'm not 100% sure how strong kubrows usually are on the stock tileset, but for the mission they seem decently tough to melee down (armor / defesne / HP boosted?) and if they get a bite or two off on you it really hurts.  I've also seen some that appeared to be flaming, or on fire, and the status effect could be applied to you when you're melee'ing them.  I don't think they were special bad-ass "firebrows" - I think they were just still on fire from engaging the aforementioned flamethrower grineer mobs, and since they have an assload of HP they were still alive when I ran in there melee'ing wildy because I CAN'T SEE SHIT.  Tactical mission points are awarded based on how many kubrows you kill.  I'm not exactly sure how that's calculated but I do know more kubrow kills = more mission points.  100 points awards you the Strun Wraith.  300 points awards the kubrow only "Bite" mod and a Stratos emblem or emblem hash mark if you already have one.  If there's a tier beyond that I can't say as I haven't progressed that far yet.

So to summarize so far:

- Log in, get an email from the Lotus, has kubrow eggs attached.  Neat.
- Go to Earth, get annoyed by low level grineer mobs interfering with my hunting for feral kubrow dens in THE FUCKING FOG.
- Agghh Fire kubrows biting me!
- Repeat mission to earn points.
- Try out things like Sonar (Banshee), Enemy Radar and Enemy Sense to mitigate THE FUCKING FOG.
- Low armor frames....ow kubrow bites.
- After 6 runs a kubrow egg actually drops from a den.  Too bad I already have them in my inventory from the Lotus email and can't pick it up!  Cool!
- Eyes start hurting trying to play hide go seek with feral kubrows / dens.
- Come here to piss and moan.


I'm usually a DE apologist but the kubrow thing is lame and annoying.  And - I can't tell if I'm done with the damn Tubemen mission, no matter how many times I run it.  Facepalm

Tubeman - Run 3/3 in a set to get a point.  It's awarded when the round is complete by players moving the total wins to 100%.  Then you can do a new set.  4 sets will get you whichever weapon the community picks, which right now will probably be the Wraith.

We've seen things like the kubrow event before. The fog is what it is, but it's easier to see during the day than at night. Night...yeah, fumble around in the fog and just hope you don't get bitten too much.

Since you are going up against lvl20ish vampire kubrows, I would suggest bringing warframes with armor, health, and have life strike on your melee or a warframe with some sort of recovery (Trin, Sayrn, equilimbrium, etc.).

I've done the event with Saryn, Trinity, and (mostly) Valkyr. Very easy, despite little to no visibility. I thought link would help. It did some, but the kubrow tend to find you and the grineer are just there. Valk worked out best, though if you like nuking your way to victory without pesky melee and have regenerative molt, then Saryn is your dogkiller. I was teamed with a Banshee once and sonar did help quite a bit. I thought about running my own equilibrium/stun Banshee, but, eh, Valky was working out just fine.

I've done just fine with Mirage as well.  Bonus is that her number 2 power makes dens shimmer.

I figure Mirage would be damn near Valk invincible with eclipse. I haven't had an issue with Loki or Excal... though Excal got a little touch and go on one run.

edit: oh yeah... so I did the @100 for the Strun Wraith. Not sure if I care, though I hear it is a great shotty. I'll def level it for mastery. Now I have an additional @300 thing for bite mod and something else. Anyone past @300 points? Is there another @500?

No, it's over at 300.

The Bite mod seems to add damage as well as the listed crit and crit multiplier.

Yeah I tried a few different frames but finally settled on Excalibro, mainly because he's fairly hearty stat-wise and has some semi-useful CC.  I went Steel Charge and Tipedo for the higher slash damage.  The event wasn't hard, just tedious.  Bite is a great reward though.

If you do 6/3 do you get two points? Or do you have to wait for each reset to get the next point?

I would assume just 1 point, but I cant be hassled to do that. I stop at 3/3 and go about my usual business.

I started the event late, though, so I'm worried if I miss a reset I won't get all 4 points.

I *think* you only get 1 point per session.  Initially I ran the damn thing like 7 times and couldn't make out what was going on with the completions.  As KC said I think it's run 3 missions for a point, wait for the reset, and repeat until you hit four sets of completions.

Yes.  It is possible to get multiple per day if you time it right though, like a session in the morning and one in the evening.

Why are they going in this cheeseball direction for the new content? I miss the old garbled Nef and Tyl.  At this pace, Kela De Thaym is either going to be a cheerleader or angry goth. 

And thanks for putting a reactor on one side of the tubemen debacle at like 6am.  Dicks.

Completely agree about ol' Tyl's new commentary during the event.  It's incongruous compared to the other voice acting in game, both in content and actual diction.  I listen to Sargas Ruk, Kela, or even Vor - then hear Tyl talking about little danglers and jelly fish and it's a WTF.  First world problems and all, but not sure what the thought process was with Tyl's dialogue.   swamp poop
