I think the secondary bonuses for the first couple of missions open up at level 30. I think that was the first time I noticed them.

Cheers.

basicly anything that a photon torp can lock on to is a bonus mission
Thanks for testing, Temptis.

If you remember tomorrow, can you send me the credit rewards for them as well, and I'll get those added to the guide as well.

I just did the three highest-level missions and can report the following:

Note that all of these were done at lvl50, only once each today.

Aeten Defense (higher level version of Skaross Fortification)

Main: destroy bombers
Bonus 1: destroy fighters (30) - 2411 credits
Bonus 2: destroy frigate shield generators (4) - 2511 credits
A proton torpedo hit to the capital ship's bridge did nothing.

Clouds of Vondoru (same as Serapin Assault)
Main: destroy capital ship shields
Bonus 1: destroy fighters and turrets (75) - 1526 credits
Bonus 2: destroy the capital ship's bridge - ? credits
Destroying the frigates' shields did nothing.

Ascendancy Barrier (same as Polith Minefield)
Main: destroy mines, destroy mine layer
Bonus 1: destroy heavy fighters (4) - 2943 credits
Bonus 2: destroy fighter tender engines (4) - 2943 credits
There were no possible targets for proton torpedoes.


We've seen extra bonus missions open up later, past the intended levels of the space missions. I did not find a third bonus in any of the three intended to be done at lvl50. I think it's plausible that BW will add a third to each of these at some later date, perhaps in an expansion when the level cap is increased (and these missions grey out).

Also, destroying the capital ship's bridge on Jabim Escort yielded 2538 credits, as did dong so on on Sullust Interception. Destroying the capital ship's shield generators did nothing.

Is there anything else you'd like tested?

It still boggles me why the extra objectives don't open up until much later, when the mission isn't really much worth doing. I wonder if this is Working as Intended.

Look at the credit numbers. They're much, much higher than the other objectives of that level. For example, on the very first mission, Jabim Escort, destroying the bridge of the capital ship awards you 2538 credits. It requires either proton torpedoes or some serious skill with missiles. When you get the torpedoes at lvl50, 2.5k credits is not a whole lot of money, but it isn't insignificant (about as much as a loot chest or a single quest). It seems to me that the purpose of the extra objectives is to make the mission worth doing - or at least not a complete waste of time - at max level.

Lol. I had said that earlier in this thread if you check. But, thinking about it again, It's still more profitable to do at-level space quests. You still get more credits.. but you get XP on top of it. It's also silly to do old quests again and again, as the higher up ones tend to be re-hashes of the earlier quests.

I was just doing the Cartel Listening Station Bonus 3 with my level 26 Marauder and after destroying the spike I got the bonus 500XP shown on screen as well as the message that I completed the objective but I didn't get any bonus credits after finishing the mission, can anybody confirm that the credit reward is level locked?

You should have received experience for destroying the comm array, though.

The credits and XP reward should show up in the chat log, but will not show up in the end mission dialog box. If you scroll up afterwards, you should be able to find a mission completion text with the reward.

Also, I feel fairly comfortable at this point saying that every Daily Bonus rewards the 2538 credit bonus.

The bonus mission of "Eliminate the Republic Command" portion of Clouds of Vondoru rewards exactly 0 credits. I have been able to complete this mission every day for the past few days and have seen no reward for it.

Or perhaps the credit bonus does not show up like the other completions do.
