Notes[edit]

  • Except for taking Brassclaw Landing, the entire chain can be soloed. Despite this, the Northern Invasion is best used when you have a sizable Zerg available (40+), to allow some players to work the other less difficult invasions and still have sufficient numbers to take Brassclaw.
  • When destroying the risen ships, they dynamically scale quickly and individually. If you need to stall the event chain to line up with other invasions, have your Zerg focus on single ships at a time (or only defend the subs with no attacking). If you need to move quickly, have the zerg spread out and hit all risen ships at once. This second option can make it move very fast with enough players.
  • Taking Brassclaw landing can be difficult, and a rough comparison would be taking Stonemist - Foes will spawn as fast as they are killed and will try to get into the ring to prevent the cap. Methods vary, but keeping more players+NPCs inside the ring is vital. Methods include:
    • ball the Risen and nuke them.
    • tank the Risen outside the ring.
    • support the NPCs with heals.
