The Crystalline Entity is back!
 
The Crystalline Entity is back! Gosh I hope it is going to be a lot easier to defeat then to other one. I remember spending 2 hours 1 day trying to kill it and a few other times. LOL we never did kill it on the teams I was on.:rolleyes:

It lost its healing and instead absorbs power which it releases in a shockwave. Things can still go south pretty hard, but the thing that made fights last forever has been removed at least.

Patching now. :D

Is there a guide to the new version floating around anywhere?

During the community events on the test server, the strategy seemed to be:

1. Shoot all the things
2. When the CE is in absorbtion mode shoot all the things except the CE
3. If somebody continues shooting the CE GTFO before the shockwave
4. Resume shooting all the things


There's also a few science powers that remove its damage buff. They kept changing how that works on the test server, so I'm not actually sure how that works now.

Sounds simple enough... How can you tell when the CE goes into sucking mode?

Ohmagerdh patch faster.

Last time I killed the CE was before they fixed ramming speed and anyone in a tier 4+ cruiser could just oneshot it.

If I remember right it gets a progress bar like the siege dreadnoughts in starbase defense. Could be misremembering and it's a boff pop up.

My sequence is hardly an ideal strategy, but without it's healing the STF PUG standard "shoot the things until there are no more things" will eventually kill it.
