# 1 Kerrat - Borg Encryption Nodes
10-18-2012, 03:35 PM
Is there a trick to getting close enough to the nodes to scan them? I have a problem, when I get about 6km away from it it suddenly jumps to 11km away.

I slow down to some very low velocity when I get at about 7 km and slowly, slowly approach them, to stop completely when I am at the scanning range. Sometimes it helps. But mostly I just get frustrated and wait for others to scan them and then I just focus on the second part of the mission.

Ker'rat is, and always has been bugged... Since day one... And it's never going to be fixed.

I approach under cloak, park at 0km, and decloak only as long as the cloak cooldown requires so I can scan it. It's the only way I can avoid getting shot in the @ss and killified by some Klingon gank squad.

I had the same problem when I first started.

The mark showing the distance is not the centre of the object, but the top left of the bracket that is highlighting the object. As most objects are small, it's easy to get into the habit of thinking that the top left part IS the object.

Because of the size of the objects in question, you can easily miss the bottom right corner so it looks like the top left is the normal thing you'd fly towards.

Try zooming out and panning downwards to see if you can see the bottom right. Once you do, you'll see the actual object you are aiming at. Just remember what it looks like and aim for that instead of the distance marker and you'll be fine

So I have dropped this mission - got as far as 4 nodes encrypted and took FFS hours! of wasted time! K, the nodes show up everytime I get my ship blown appart - now thats a great help - be nice if the adminstrators would give us a heads up or fix the damn thing!

Fix what??

Afaik Ker'rat works as intended, it's a PvP race, first team to collect their 8 nodes and 4 repair hulks wins the prize, ie blue and purple gear, you also have the added daily bonus of 1440 dillithium for completing it three times.

If your the only person in the instance, or if you have a pile of AKFers in there then it's a case of TS, as it's basically just you against the hive, and that can take quite a while to complete it once never mind three times.
