On the Polith Minefield what part of the minelayer is the "bay"? I've unloaded about 50 missiles on this thing and keep failing the mission.

Edit: ok I found out which part it is. But how does one destroy a bay plus both engines when the minelayer is on screen for less than 48 seconds?

OP: By "Daily Bonus" you mean "repeatable once a day" and not Daily as in "Daily Commendation"?

If you would add "Daily Commendation" Rewards to your guide, taht would be a help to lvl50s farming Dailies.

"Impossible Sector" gives a 2x Daily Commendation Reward, repeatable once a day.
Funny how PVP folks strive to become the best PK, while PVE folks know that PKs are just really really bad players.

Correct, repeatable once per day.

As of today's patch, Impossible Sector & Ascendancy Barrier Operation missions do give daily commendations. I'll add that to the page.

Just realized I missed this.

You get three passes against the minelayer. I generally use the first long pass to take out both of the engines. Then I'll use the 2 shorter passes to work on the bay.

The important thing to remember is that unlike some objectives, your lasers still do good damage against the engines and bays. Keep a steady stream of laser fire, and use missiles as available. It got significantly easier for me when I started doing that.

Edit: Also, big update coming tomorrow or Friday. be on the lookout

Wait a minute, are the space missions between both factions identical?
You can complain because roses have thorns or rejoice because thorns have roses.

Well, that depends what you mean by identical. They're not the exact same missions on the exact same rails. But they do have the same goals, and offer the same rewards. They're mirrored, like the classes.

First off, thank you very much for this guide, it is incredibly helpful.

Regarding Fondor Escort (from a Republic point of view):

I'm not sure if I'm just particularly dense, but it took me a few tries to figure out which capital ship I should be attacking for the daily bonus. It turns out that, on the Republic side, you want the second one. I didn't get an exact time, but it shows up fairly early on (maybe 1 minute in), dropping in from Hyperspace on your left.

It's actually sort of obvious now that I look back on it, since it's the only one where you can see the bridge for any appreciable amount of time. You have to start your Proton Torpedo lock as fast as possible, though, as you have a fairly small window of opportunity to fire.

Hope someone finds that useful.

Cheers,

Terren

Thanks Terren!

I'll add that tip to the front to help out the Republic side people.
