Galactic Challenges is a new PVE event that allows players to do challenging combat puzzles that will change on a regular basis. The combat puzzles utilize modifiers and feats to keep players looking for fresh new ways to complete the challenges. These modifiers can be Global, which affects all , Enemy, and Player and can make changes to the battles such as applying buffs/debuffs or giving characters special abilities. Galactic Challenges have 7 tiers of difficulty with each tier providing different feats and rewards. Galactic Challenges will be accessible from the Events Holotable starting at Player Level 60.

Modifiers

There are currently two types of modifiers in Galactic Challenges: Planet (may also be referred to as Environmental) and Faction. Planet modifiers are specific to the planets and will not be used for other planets. Likewise Faction modifiers are specific to the Faction and will not be used for other factions. Each Galactic Challenge will use 3 different modifiers, 1 Planet and 2 Faction, which will be applied to Global, Player, and Enemy for the event. These modifiers are used to alter the battles by applying buffs, debuffs, new abilities, or special mechanics to each challenge.

Planet Modifiers

These modifiers are specific to each planet and will always be assigned as the Global Modifier in Galactic Challenges.
