New Additions

Planet Cyrene

This VU ushers in the precursor to Hard Launch. The former lands of Cyrene have been removed for the time being and all players will be relocated to a new area.

All the current Cyrene missions are still possible to do on this new area, only the mission NPCs are in a new location, with the majority of them being located in the new A.R.C. Staging Area. This also applies to creature and mining spawns, they can all still be located on the new area.

This new area (which will be referred to as the Relocation area) is located in the southwest quadrant and features some new geography that has not been seen before as well as some familiar locations:
- The Inverted Zyn Pyramid
- The Scientific Order of Cyrene and the floating Sky Labs.
- The Ice Plateu, home to Ice Crystal Golems and Zyn'nix.

This server will have a progression map for our Dynamic Upgrade System which will show not only what the dynamic unlocks are but also how far along the progression is. The progression will be updated every few weeks.

There are also many new teleporters to find:
- A.R.C. Immigration - Tanhok
- A.R.C. Immigration - Zyn
- Atlas Hunting Grounds
- Desert Ruins
- Great Plains
- Ice Plateu Outskirts
- Isle de Zel
- Mer Beach
- Miner Isles
- Ngu Volcano
- Outer Rim
- Rookie Training Area
- Zyn Forest

Two new creatures have been introduced to Planet Cyrene:
- The Arret, one of the first mammal hybrids to appear on Cyrene, this creature is able to be tamed by skilled players.
- The Crystal Ice Golem, this fearsome creatures have taken over the Ice Plateau and driven the Zyn'Nix into hiding.
