    UPDATE: The Version Updates are postponed to Wednesday.

    Next Tuesday we will see another Version Update which is supposed to add a lot of new Planet Partner content. Let's have a little preview on what might be added.

    What are you looking forward to the most?


    The platform VU will introduce basic instances.
    Unfortunately the tools to create instances are so far only available for MA/Planet Calypso but not for Planet Partners.

    Beacon Missions

    Beacon Missions will be back on Calypso.

    Wiki Page: Beacon Missions

    New Creature

    The Hussk is supposed to arrive finally.

    Hussk Preview Screenshot

    • An acid spitting 50 meter tall boss mob
    • Hussk will do this 95% of current hp damage attack to everyone within the attack radius and then its up to player to heal as fast as they can before his other attacks begin killing you off. Clarification: Percentage of current HP damage does not deal decay to armor.
    • He can only be spawned by players through a quest, this quest requires items for completion that has a low drop chance from several new wave spawn bosses.
    • He's spawned in a cave that he cant leave. And neither can anyone else for that matter since the only way to enter is to jump through a hole in the ceiling and land in a pool of water.
    • It's a PvP area, it will be in your interest to have a dedicated defense team at the dungeon entrance. Killing an enemy will really mean something here since both teleportations and flying vehicles are disabled in the region and its a darn long hike from the closest outpost.
    New Missions
    • At least one mission or a mission chain leading to the Hussk is supposed to be added.
    • There will also be some additional repeatable mission
    New Weapons
    • 45 new powerfists and clubs
    • Some of these new weapons can only be obtained from mission tokens
    • Some of these limited weapons can be transformd to unlimited versions through missions which are supposed to be very hard missions and which themselves require hard to find items
    • Some ot these weapons will probably only be available from Mission Token Traders
    • DOA Immolation Gauntlets
      • strongest new powerfist, over 100 damage per second
      • will require a Profession Level of 90+ to use it
      • whatever it hits starts to burn
    • Castorian Combat Mace
    • Chikara Oni (L)
      • Craftable, probably from a level 16 blueprint
    Chikara Oni (L).

    New Vehicles
    You will be able to purchase Calypso Defence Force vehicles for mission tokens

    New Missions

    Arachne's Dilemma

    "Arachne’s working on a textile project, and she’s going to need some help."​

    The reward for the mission is a Blueprint, could be for the Athenian Thunika but more likely for the Athenian Headscarf.​

    "There’s a special flower blooming in Arachne’s garden. This flower is known as a narcissus, ... When you get to Arachne’s house after the November content release, be sure to step out into the garden, pick this flower, and see where it leads you."​

    Sebastian's Find

    "That’s right! Sebastian’s coming back to his treehouse in Crystal Resort. He’s going to be explaining why he hates those boar so much and how he came to be a talking papoo."​


    New Items

    Trojan Breastplate (M) & (F)
    Next Island’s first piece of unique armor​
    "The art for this piece is inspired by a hoplite breastplate but dependent on the modeling and animation parameters of the Harness armor slot in the Entropia Universe. Our art team did an especially lovely job on the female version. There’s no historical reference for lady hoplites, so what the guys sent over is a feminized version of the male breastplate, using the same colors and lines, and without defaulting to the standard-issue battle bikini. I think it layers well over the upcoming Athenian Tunic, or the starter chiton."​


    Athenian Tunic (M) & (F)
    "This item, one of our first for the Ancient Greece world, will be crafted by players, from a blueprint with a low skill requirement. The final garment has three colorable fields for customization, and is available for men and for women."​
    Athenian Headscarf (C)
    Craftable and customizable. Probably a reward for the Arachne's Dilemma mission(s).​
    There is an issue with the customization of this item and it will be released as a non-customizable version first and then upgraded to customizable in a patch next week.​
    Broken Elysian Technology / Elysian Tech Chips
    • Broken Elysian Technology can will be found on the ground like fruits, stones or dung
    • can be refined into Elysian Tech Chips
    • Elysian Tech Chips, in varying quantities, will be used in blueprints for Elysian tools (in progress) and Elysian weapons (in planning).

    "When the First Wave arrivals came to Next Island, there were some problems with Elysian interdimensional travel. The Elysians have different ideas about whether they’re the victims of clever sabotage from within or whether they’ve just really bad luck with an ambitious endeavor, but regardless, they encountered a lot of trouble.​
    Broken pieces of their equipment can now be found around Next Island. Second Wavers will be able to find pieces of broken Elysian technology, and refine them into Elysian Tech Chips. These tech chips are essential for making profession tools, and may even be used in high-tech weapons in the future."​

    Hm... I don't think so. All I found about them was the Returning Systems Roadmap published about a month ago which says:
    MA ahead of schedule? :eek (2): That could cause the universe to collapse!

    However, if anyone has any further info on any content of the updates please report!

  12. Yes, while MindArk implements new income generating systems like land deeds and instances on their OWN planet (Calypso), Planet Partners sit around hoping that MindArk will find time in their busy schedule to actually program system code for the other planets...

    Updated with the info about the Athenian Headscarf (C).
  14. I'm a vehicle hoarder. I think I will like this.

    I'm still confident. We saw downtimes starting between 07:00 and 15:00.

    However, after all that buzz a tiny little note would have been nice...

  17. I'm not confident anymore.. I'm gonna just forget it was even supposed to be today and aim for it to be next week.. (if we are lucky) .. Chances are that with their silence, we should be lucky to have it in before Christmas..
  18. I wonder which of the many partners in the puzzle dropped the ball this time.

    Again, I wonder when MA will learn proper communication. A note in Support Note should take less than a minute.

    Only MA can do that. The deadline for Planet Partners to deliver their content for review was last week iirc.

    On the Roadmap published only 1 month ago MA said Beacons will be return in the midde of December. Probably they took massive efforts to push the release two weeks earlier. If you originally say you need 6 weeks but then are ready 4 weeks, that's a significant difference. They probably did it to attract as many people to play on Calypso exactly this week in order to boost this weeks gross revenue that decides over next weeks Land Deeds payout in order to rise the interest in Land Deeds.
