Update 2 - 10PM PST (6AM GMT) - The Defiance team is working with Xbox 360 to get this issue resolved but that resolution isn't likely before business hours on Tuesday.

We'll post another update the second we have more info. Update 1 - 4:30 PM PST (12:30 AM GMT) - We're still working to get this resolved but no ETA to report yet. Getting this sorted out is our top priority so please bear with us. Ark Hunters, Defiance on the Xbox 360 is going to remain offline for an extended period of time while we work to resolve an issue. We don't have an estimated time for when we will bring it back online just yet, but once we have more info we'll update this thread. Thanks for your patience.

Introducing: The Gulanee

The Gulanee are a rarely seen Votan species whose bodies are composed of an array of energy producing gasses and a viscous core. Although most believe they are simply a big ball of luminescent light, this is far from the truth. The energies in the bodies are of various densities and compositions. These energies do not mix, instead entwining and swirling about in a chaotic dance, like blood rushing through veins. Some forms of energy are light rays that would simply disperse if not for the will and complex containment suits of the Gulanee. A Gulanee outside of his containment suit cannot survive for more than a few hours before his will collapses and he loses vital forms of energy, dying. Formed of energy, they also consume energy, something that poses a threat to any frontier town struggling to produce fuel for the community. Other threats they present are radioactive leaks and communication interference. This makes them unwelcome in most outland settlements.

Gulanee are strange beings, misunderstood by all, even the Votans. They were the only species to live on their own planet, a gas giant called Gula. They were only discovered during the Votanis Collective’s intergalactic quest for a suitable energy source for the exodus to Earth. After eventually deciphering the inaudible language of the Gulanee, the Votanis Collective made a pact with them to siphon energies from the planet Gula for their arks in exchange a portion of the Gulanee species would accompany the arks as emissaries. Most of their populace stayed behind, confident they would endure the destruction of the sun Sulos. With such a small contingent included aboard the arks, it is rare thing to encounter the Gulanee in the New Frontier.

The Gulanee have spread throughout the globe. They appear to be in a constant journey with no destination. It is rare see a Gulanee. It is even rare to see one as part of a static community. They walk alone throughout the world in containment suits that have now been heavily modified since being on Earth.

At least one Gulanee on Earth was a known criminal being held in a cryo-pod. This was the infamous crimelord Dy’Dekuso who escaped from his prison in an arkfall and now leads a horde of outlaws called the Raiders.

Introducing: The Ex Inanis Gulanee group

A faction of the Gulanee, calling themselves Ex Inanis, are looking for a new resource: Purified Gulanite. These Gulanee have found a way to live off of the energy provided by this Purified Gulanite, and as such have found a way into the towns of Paradise without absorbing all the power around them into their energy based bodies. They enlist members of their faction, called runners, to trade for this valuable resource from Arkhunters who obtain it in Paradise, so that they can continue to thrive. What is their mysterious intent?

Ex Inanis Runner:

 

NEW CURRENCY

A new currency has been added to the game: Purified Gulanite. You can find this currency listed in the stats screen in your menu. This currency will be dropping from the following types of content in game:

  • Expeditions
  • Emergencies
  • Sieges
  • Arkfalls
  • Contracts


Due to this, the following changes will be in place:

  • Items will no longer be awarded at the end of event arkfalls, and items will not be dropping on the ground at event arkfalls
  • All other events, such as sieges, rewards will remain the same however players will now get the Purified Gulanite currency as well
  • Currency reward payouts for Arkfalls and Sieges will now be score based
    • 25k score will be required to receive rewards
    • 75k score will get you close to the max payout
    • Payout maxes out at 150k score
  • Currency reward payouts for Expeditions will be based on the Tier and Round – The higher the Tier and Round, the more currency will be earned

NEW VENDORS

Collect Purified Gulanite and Scrip and trade it in to these Ex Inanis Runners in town for boxes that contain your favorite synergies and mods!

  • Current boxes will contain Spinal Tap, Plate Slicer, and Sustained Suppression
  • Each synergy will now pull from a set of weapons that will include weapons that have never before been tied to those synergies. Each synergy will pull the same weapons regardless of the synergy. Weapon types listed below:

 


Each runner sells several different kinds of boxes:

New Manufacturer Bonus

Every weapon purchased from an Ex Inanis Runner, will have the Ex Inanis Manufacturer bonus: 2% ammo regen every 10s!

NEW JACKPOTS: PERFECTED WEAPONS

These new weapons are replacing the old jackpot structure. Weapons purchased from the Defiance store or the Ex Inanis Runners, have a chance to roll a perfected version, which will contain one of 3 different manufacturer bonuses:

  • Dynamic - + 10% Increased Damage, +5% Rate of Fire /Crit / Reload / Mag / Recoil / Accuracy
  • Precise - + 10% Increased Damage, +10% Crit / Reload / Accuracy
  • Berserk - +10% Increased Damage, +10% Rate of Fire / Mag / Recoil

These new perfected weapons will roll with random bonus stats, and will always be legendary. In addition, we have now included MORE weapon types to your favorite synergies! Every synergy will have never before seen weapons. In addition, all Perfected weapons will roll with a random nano, and explosive weapons can now contain the Syphon nano!

Perfected weapons have a much higher chance of dropping compared to previous jackpots, both on the Ex Inanis Runner and in the Defiance store.

NEW STORE BOXES

All of the boxes that are sold on the Ex Inanis Runner will have premium versions available on the store. Premium versions will:

  • Always be Epic or better
  • Have a much higher chance of being Legendary mods or weapons
  • Have a much higher chance of dropping a perfected weapon

Store boxes will not be available on PTS

KARMA UPDATE

Karma will no longer add for events in game. Instead, karma will now be added when you purchase a box containing a weapon from the Ex Inanis Runner (mod boxes will NOT contain karma). Each point of karma will show up as being added in your chat window, and will contribute to the chance of getting a perfected weapon.

Karma earned through the Defiance store will be a separate karma as always, and will also contribute to the change of getting a perfected weapon.

Karma is still a patron only system, and is only active when you have a patron pass active.

Py’Numbra:


A new mysterious NPC, who seems to possibly lead the Ex Inanis, is showing up in emergencies in Paradise. Can you find him? After completing an emergency, Py’Numbra has a rare chance to spawn, and will remain for only 1 minute after the emergency has ended. During this time, any player will be able to purchase the following from him for Purified Gulanite:

  • Specific previously released Jackpot Weapons – These will rotate week to week
  • Perfected Weapon Box – Contains one random perfected weapon
  • Legendary Mod Box – Contains one random Legendary Mod


Seek out this mysterious Runner to get the best loot in the game!

As always, thanks for testing, and keep in mind that these notes are not final and subject to change.
