Could someone shed some light on this mission? I am getting contradictory orders from just about everyone in the mission:
No torps beams only
all fragments heal the entity
only small fragments and fragments that hit you heal it
shoot the fragments
Don't shoot the fragments
only shoot small fragments b4 they get back to entity and regular fragments on your tail
set power to speed and stay ahead of the fragments
stop dead and use mines to destroy fragments that get too close
All I know is it seems to be my experience that if you sit in one spot surrounded by mines and lob torpedos at the entity I had almost no fragments target me. what ended up was all the ppl circling around had a string of fragments on their tail and they would all lock on me as the player passed by and I would take damage or die not even several loads of mines can take that many fragments out.
I got yelled at so I dumped my torps for beams and played ring around the entity and within minutes we must have had 50 or more fragments chasing everybody. It was so congested I could not even get to 10K range without bumping into them.
Also of note at roughly 35% the entity spouts large fragments. These will if shot or hit something break into at least 3 small fragments that make a B line back to the entity and heal it back to 50%+ in seconds. We never did get the entity below 30% too many people yelling stop this or do this not that and the entity would get back up to 100% in a few minutes and then people would get frustrated and leave the group making it impossible to complete.
So could we have a discussion or mission guide about just what works and doesn't work for this mission?
oh and I found this blog and it was his tactics I used that seemed to actually work:
