Dawn of liberation event is live
Join the fight for freedom in celebration of Liberation Day in the Republic! Dawn of Liberation brings to light the struggle and emancipation of the Minmatar people against their oppressors.
Celebrate Minmatar Liberation Day by rescuing captured slaves in Amarr space, then dropping them off in nearby Minmatar Haulers which will get them to safety.
Claim bounties and rewards, such as Cerebral Accelerators, Fireworks and exclusive limited time SKINs.
Minmatar Liberation Day Celebrations usually spark anti-slaver sentiment, driving capsuleers to hunt down slavers and assist in the liberation of slaves. The Republic has been trying to find a way to allow capsuleers and traders alike to help with the liberation of slaves without putting any unwarranted burden on the liberators. To this end, there have been considerations of providing haulers that help with the transport of rescued slaves, beginning the process of assisting them with reintegrating back into society. However, without any incentive, many capsuleers and traders have avoided participating. This year, the Republic will be generously rewarding those to who help free their captured people.
How to participate
Access the Dawn of Liberation objectives via The Agency in the Neocom menu. Then, decide what objective you're going to tackle, choosing from battling slaver ships, bounty hunting and rescuing slaves from enemy ships or Human Containment Facilities. Finally, set course and start racking up those Agency points for any objectives completed, eventually unlocking further rewards with your gathered points.
Chainbreaker Khumaak SKINs
During the Liberation Day celebrations, this stunning SKIN with holographic banners and details will be available in the New Eden Store for selected hulls.
Available for capital and supercapital hulls, as well as Minmatar Marauder and Black Ops hulls, this SKIN uses new banner technology to show off the banners of liberation.
Be sure to grab it to show of your dedication to the cause!
Dawn Of Liberation SKINs
As part of the Dawn of Liberation event, a new SKIN set will be available for a wide range of Minmatar hulls.
These SKINs will be accessible as rewards and via loot drops, and are available for more than 30 ships, ranging from Frigates to Battleships!
Join the fight, and fly the colors of Freedom!
Light Balance Pass
With this release, capsuleers can enjoy a few light ship changes to keep the meta fresh.
With the deployment of the July release, we'll see the addition of a drone bay to the Zealot, a slight reduction in the max velocity of the Retribution in order to bring it in line with the rest of the Assault Frigates, and a switch in bonuses for the Claw that will see it's Minmatar Frigate bonus change from turret damage to rate of fire.
Abyssal Loot Balance
Intrepid capsuleers from across the cluster who dare to explore the abyss will benefit from improved loot drops and more incentive to dive in and take on the Triglavian Collective.
Abyssal loot drops have been updated to be more rewarding at all tiers, with Triglavian Survey Data appearing much more frequently, more common drops of Gravid and Unstable mutaplasmids in Tier 3 abyssal pockets and changes to weapon drops that provide blueprints rather than modules.
The range of modules that can be mutated using abyssal mutaplasmid colonies is increasing this release, with the addition of new mutaplasmids for Nosferatus and Capacitor Batteries.
Missile Graphics Optimization
With the July release, missile graphics will receive a substantial overhaul, with a view to increasing performance during large scale missile based engagements.
Capsuleers will be able to enjoy more optimized graphics and effects, and substantial improvements in client performance when this change is rolled out.
