Anyone knows which missions have the boosts and which have the weekly access pass ?

Thanks !
Bumping that, because despite running most (admittedly, not all) both repeatable and introductory missions, I'm yet to see single new reward.

This ls pretty great stuff, though I knew most of it already :P. One minor correction though, capital ship bridges and the comm relay on space stations CAN be destroyed without proton torpedoes, it takes a crapton of missiles however. If you find you have spent all your torpedoes, especially on the heroic space missions where it takes two to destroy a bridge, you can use missiles to attempt to destroy it. It takes a lot less time to do this if you've already fired a torpedo at at it.

Not to detract from your efforts but 1 thing I must point out..

http://oneil.com.au/nefash/tips.html - Use direction keys.

You may wish to note that portion of your guide only applies if you use the default keymappings, as remapping the keys will result in the loss of ability to control your ship from the keyboard.

Excellent guide OP. Thanks. This will get my space missions kick started again.

The only thing I would add as a criticism is your clashing font and background colors make things hard to read sometimes. Just a friendly suggestion on what you might change to help your viewers.

Nevertheless, thanks. You page has been bookmarked.

This is true, but I would advise re-mapping the keys just for the space missions. I have to do it, too, but it's entirely worth it and only takes a few seconds. The additional mobility makes up for the inconvenience.


Nice guide! I haven't really been struggling with the space missions, but I'm sure it will help people who do.

Glad people have been finding it useful.

Today I got a weekly pass !!!

This was on a toon i didn't do many space missions with and directly outfitted with grade 7 at 50.

Thus today with the "breaking" of the blast condensers I needed to get the rendili hyperworks thingie and so I did the Aeten defense mission to get it, and at the end I also got the weekly pass. I don't think it's a random drop. It probably comes with the missions you do the first time and that have special rewards.
And am meaning it : "first time mission", wasn't a daily.

Note : it's BOP.

Also in Thanium Disruption and Regnant Station I think that "Destroy Enemy Fighters" is actually called "No Pilot Stands a Chance" in the Combat Log. I think this because I completed the missions in the game but do not seem them listed that way in the combat log. It is something like destroying 60 to 80 fighters depending on the mission. I made a note in () on those ones.
Hey it's been a while since we pilots didn't talk shop about space combat !

So since I've been chasing the codex entries, I'm still only at 13/14, the thing is, there is this mysterious tidbit from William "rocket boots" Wallace in the recent achievement blog that had me extremely excited :

Quote:
Something Doesn’t Add Up!

Players on our Public Test Server (PTS) have noticed that the point totals for each Achievement category don’t necessarily match up with the visible point totals for all Achievements within those categories. You are quite correct! The numbers do not always add up. Maybe there’s something hidden waiting to be discovered…


So since you weren't sure about the names of some of those bonuses that yield Codex entries, I checket them all, and here are the 13/14 I have so far :

Ardis/Kabal :
  • Annihilate the enemy : 50 fighters
  • No pilot stands a chance : 3 Sith/Jedi ships

Baros/Duma :
  • Cripple the enemy : 12 bombers
  • Annihilate the enemy : 60 fighters

Hypori/Lorrta :
  • Annihilate the enemy : 70 fighters
  • Eliminate the enemy : 4 frigates

New Cov/Kanz :
  • Annihilate the enemy : 80 fighters
  • Eliminate the enemy : 2 frigates (codex is bugged there : no image)
  • No pilot stands a chance : 1 Sith/Jedi ship

Regnant/Far Craddle :
  • Annihilate the enemy : 40 fighters
  • Eliminate the enemy : 4 frigates
  • No pilot stands a chance : 1 Sith/Jedi ship

Thanium/Cha Rabaa :
  • No pilot stands a chance : 4 mercenary ships

For Thanium/Cha Rabaa, I have tried killing the tender ship at the entrance of the minefield, right before the first pass on the frigate and I think I killed it but not 100% sure. Didn't get a Codex, either because well I didn't kill it after all, or because there is no codex entry for it...
I've also tried Capital ship Shield points with Proton torpedoes, nothing...
Maybe need to kill a whole capital ship along with all turrets, shields and bridge ?

Where's this 14th space codex entry... Hmmmm...

hey thanks for this. It's amazing how many people give up before getting their invulnerability shield. Got to love the loads of xp you get, for doing nothing more than a couple minutes in a quest. just bucketfuls full of xp
