Hold the Line at Pahvo!

By Ambassador Kael | Thu 08 Feb 2024 09:00:00 AM PST

The living planet of Pahvo is once again the center of a siege by Terran forces. Gather your most trusted allies and come to its defense before they can manipulate its energies to be used as a weapon of galactic devastation! This is the start of a brand new Event Campaign, that will give you the best rewards we've ever given out!

The Defense of Pahvo Event will include multiple TFOs, previously featured individually, in a combined Featured Event that will allow players to choose their favored way of defending Pahvo each day, while earning Daily Progress toward a new grand prize reward. Defend the system space above the planet by maintaining and operating a series of defensive satellites, or take to the vibrant wilds of the planet’s surface to stop Terran forces from corrupting its mysterious energies.

Participating in this Event will progress you in our latest Event Campaign, and give all players the opportunity to earn a Pahvo Space Set for their entire account! Keep reading for details on these items, how you can participate in the Event, and what additional prizes may be earned.


Defense of Pahvo – Activity Details

Two existing activities will be participating in this Event:

Pahvo Dissension – Ground TFO

The I.S.S. Charon has been sucked through space, time, and across universes to crash land on Pahvo. Word of the planet’s unique nature has reached the Terran survivors and they are proceeding to agonize Pahvo into a weapon. Only you (and 4 other captains) can stop them!

Peril Over Pahvo – Space TFO

Enemy forces strike, seeking to control the enigmatic world of Pahvo! Rush to enable and defend a newly-established defensive blockade consisting of multiple configurations of satellites, while preventing various enemy factions from getting a foothold above the living planet.

While the action players will engage in during these TFOs have not changed for this event, a few minor adjustments have been made to each that will be present for the length of this Event’s run:

  • Each completion will reward a Choice of All Marks (replacing the usual Mark rewards)
  • Both TFOs have had their Cooldown Timers temporarily disabled
  • Both TFOs have been temporarily removed from Random TFO eligibility

Players will be able to earn their Daily Progress once every 20 hours by completing the TFO of their choosing. Either of the above TFOs may be played as much as you like each day, so pick and choose how you prefer to gain Progress each day, and mix it up as much (or as little) as you like!


Defense of Pahvo – Event Rewards

Accruing a total of 14 Days’ worth of Daily Progress will allow you to claim the Grand Prize of Defense of Pahvo Event. This reward includes all of the following:

  • Pahvo Space Set
    • Omni-Directional Pahvan Proton Beam Array

    • Pahvan Proton Energy Torpedo Launcher

    • Console - Universal - Pahvo Crystal Battery

    • 3x Featured TFO Reward Boxes (Single Character Reward)
      • Each gives a choice of 1x Specialization Point or an Enhanced Universal Tech Upgrade
  • 25,000 Dilithium Ore (Single Character Reward)
    • Issued immediately for use as you see fit!

(Note: The Featured TFO Boxes and Dilithium Ore are only rewarded once, to the first character on your account that claims the Grand Prize.)


Reward Details: Pahvo Space Set

Omnidirectional Pahvan Proton Beam

The Omni-Directional Pahvan Proton Beam Array offers a 360-degree firing arc. This special beam array is capable of being enhanced with Cannon special firing modes, in addition to being able to utilize the standard Beam firing mode functions. Hitting an enemy with this weapon has a chance to apply a Resonance Charge to your target, causing them and up to three additional enemies to take additional Proton Damage. The amount of damage dealt by this AOE Proton Damage scales with the number of stacks of Resonance Charge on your target - and you can have stacks of Resonance Chance on multiple enemies at once.

Pahvan Proton Energy Torpedo Launcher

Pahvan Proton Energy Torpedo launchers fire projectiles that deal average Proton damage and have an moderate recharge. Unlike most torpedo launchers, the Energy Torpedo Launcher's damage is enhanced by abilities and items that improve Proton damage, and not those that improve Kinetic weapons. Hitting an enemy with this weapon has a chance to apply a Resonance Charge to your target, causing them and up to three additional enemies to take additional Proton Damage. The amount of damage dealt by this AOE Proton Damage scales with the number of stacks of Resonance Charge on your target - and you can have stacks of Resonance Chance on multiple targets at once.

Console - Universal - Pahvan Crystal Battery

This technology incorporates Pahvan crystals into an energy storage and distribution system that can be linked into your ship's weaponry. These crystalline charges provide additional benefits to your ship's weapons, including a slightly faster firing cycle and a reduced recharge time for cannon firing modes, as well as a hefty bonus to any Proton damage you inflict.

2-Piece Set Bonus: Pahvan Interstellar Bombardment Beam

Call on the devastating defensive capabilities from the living planet, Pahvo. This version of the beam has been enhanced using special orbital technology, allowing it to travel the interstellar medium at faster-than-light speeds, but in the process trading off its devastating psionic damage for proton damage. The interstellar beam will concentrate on the chosen target for a few seconds before detonating in a large area for additional Proton damage to other nearby enemies.

3-Piece Set Bonus: P.I.B.B. Enhancements

Having all three items equipped reduces the cooldown on the Pahvan Interstellar Bombardment Beam to 60 seconds, and causes it to consume all stacks of Resonance Charge on hit. The damage of the P.I.B.B. increases for each charge consumed this way.


Bonus Rewards

After claiming the Grand Prize, you will unlock the option of earning additional Dilithium Ore each day that you continue participating in the content associated with the Borg Resurgence. Each day you earn the Daily Progress you will be automatically granted a bundle of Dilithium Ore.

This bonus reward will begin at 8,000 Dilithium Ore for the first day’s completion, then scales up with each subsequent bonus completion that you achieve. The more you play, the more you continue to earn!


Zen Buyout Option

For players interested in instantly completing the Defense of Pahvo Event – whether that is due to worries over finding the play time to complete it, or simply wanting to move immediately into earning Bonus Rewards – we will be offering a method for buying out.

Within the Event UI, an option will be presented that allows you to purchase the remaining progress that you need, for a scaling amount of Zen. The base price for this service will be 2,500 Zen, but every single Daily Progress that you earn will reduce that price on a percentage basis. Thus, if you have already earned 7 Daily Progress (half of the 14 required), this price will be reduced for you down to 1,250 Zen. The more you play, the cheaper the Buyout Option becomes, dynamically!


Event Campaign

This Featured Event will be the first of a series of upcoming Events that will participate in the latest installment of our multi-event system known as an Event Campaign. For 2024, we're changing things up a bit. You'll need to participate in six events in total in order to earn the Grand Prize. However, the Grand Prize is changing, as well. Instead of having to choose between a Tier 6 Infinity Promotional Ship of your choice, two Free T6 Zen Store Coupons, or 1500 Lobi, you will receive all three. No more difficult choices, just get all of the rewards at once!

  • Players may earn 50 Event Campaign Progress for each day they participate in an eligible event.
  • Buying out an eligible event will include up to 700 Event Campaign Progress.
  • Each event’s buyout only grants as much Event Campaign Progress as is relative to the amount paid, after pro-rated discounts are applied. This means that paying half price, (because you participated in 7 out of 14 of the required days so far) will grant you 350 Event Campaign Progress. Essentially, you get what you pay for.
  • Complete the entire campaign to unlock a Tier 6 Infinity Promotional Ship of your choice, Two Free T6 Zen Store Coupons, and 1500 Lobi.


The Defense of Pahvo Event will run on PC from February 15th at 8am PT to March 7th at 12pm PT and on Xbox and PlayStation from February 20th at 8am PT to March 12th at 12pm PT.
