From Friday 9am PST, 1/20 to Monday 9am PST, 1/23, Unidentified raiding fleets and Reaver Armadas will spawn at various times, providing VXP bonuses! Salvage and Elite Salvage fleets will be worth double their normal VXP payout.
Reaver Armada 55 will spawn the entire time around Draconian Uranium Bases and also pay out bonus VXP.
Going forward any new, high level VXP target will appear as Unidentified Raiders on the world map and be unaffected by class restriction rules. These are different from Unidentified Raiding Fleets in payout and difficulty, and can be identified by a different icon and presence of a target level. For January, this high level target will appear as a level 100 Siege target. It will appear alongside Reaver Armada level 99 around Nav Relays but only from Fri, 9am - Sat, 9pm.
Draconian Armada Removal
As messaged in December (https://www.kixeye.com/forum/discussion/675176), Draconian Armadas will be removed from the map, starting Wednesday 1/18. The Reaver targets that are replacing them have been spawning for the last month. The following Forsaken R&D objectives will change to reflect this (player progress made before the change will be preserved):
#10 Advancing Armaments - Destroy 5 Level 57 Reaver Armadas
#20 Shipyard Streamlining - Return Resource to base x150,000,000; Repair ship armor x100,000; Destroy 3x Level 57 Reaver Armadas
#22 Swashbuckling Sea - Destroy Level 75 Reaver Armada
#25 Shipyard Streamlining - Return Resource to base x200,000,000; Repair Ship Armor x150,000; Destroy 2x level 75 Reaver Armadas
#27 Swashbuckling Sea - Destroy 3x level 75 Reaver Armadas
The Locator will be updated to find Reaver Armadas instead of Draconian Armadas with this update.
