Tried to do this today, got in the reward room and the insectoid remains said: "You have not the experience in fighting the hive, to find something useful in the pile."
I think the most points our team had was 200, so there might be another requirement for the quest or it requires more points. -- Sixorish 10:07, December 16, 2011 (UTC)
Outfit: 300 points, 1.addon 500, 2. 1000 Mirkaan 10:36, December 16, 2011 (UTC)
If I use 50 points for the reward they still count for the outfit addons right? And you should add Ladybug spawn on third stage. Jtuni 16:28, December 16, 2011 (UTC)
There are two counters. War exp and favour, war exp will always remain and it's the one that matters when checking if you can get outfit/addons and the second one tells if you still have some to sacrifice in order to hunt in protected Hive areas. Yxil 23:22, December 20, 2011 (UTC)
Mission: Destroy The Hive Crystals
I have a question concerning this mission. Is it possible to take 5 flasks of regent fluid and make 5 flasks of aggressive fluid by using each of them on fresh dead spidris and then use them one by one on monoliths? Yxil 23:24, December 20, 2011 (UTC)
Yes, but note that the fluids will go back to their original state if you don't use them in within a certain time. -- Sixorish 19:47, January 8, 2012 (UTC)
Gaining points & missions advancement
1 task from stage 1 = 400 xp ,1 war point , 1 favor point.
what about task from stage 2 ? is it profitable to make them ? (or i still get 400xp / 1wp /1 fp per task just with higher cost of finishing it)
considering top 300 at recent times at most servers all players are 200+ so i can call my char mid lvl because i havent reached the top yet , and i can make a stage 1 mission in 2-3 minutes what gives avg 24 points/ hour . To get full outfit i need 1800 points what simply gives 75h of running there and back to get those points at simple mission "disable" (quite long period of time on such a boring task)

If you don't care about anything except the outfit, you should do the disable / blind / digestion tasks, the stage 2 tasks reward 2 war exp but it takes a lot longer than 2x the easier ones. Also, you don't lose war exp (only favour) so you only need 1000 war points. You can get the outfit and addons using just 50 favour, but if you acquire the pheromones when you can get the outfit, 1st addon and 2nd addon, you'd use 150 ... -- Sixorish 19:39, January 8, 2012 (UTC)
Does anyone know how many missions should be done in the hive for it to open?
Kelly Appleseed 16:04, January 18, 2012 (UTC)
It depends how many people are doing the deepling weakening objectives. Check the guide NPCs and they'll tell you how much behind the hive is. At server save they'll either progress, remain the same or be reset to stage 1.
Suppose that we're at deepling stage 3 and the hive stage 1.
If, at server save, the hive is worse off than the deeplings: deeplings reset to stage 1, hive progress to stage 2. If at the next server save, the hive is still worse off, deeplings remain at stage 1, the hive progresses to stage 3.
If, however, at the first server save, the hive is better off than the deeplings: nothing changes.
In other words, the stage will increase for the race that is worse off at server save. The task counters reset at ss.
It seems people care more about doing deepling tasks than the hive tasks (understandable because the ornate set is highly valued), so you'll need a lot of work to get it done and it probably will reset back to stage 1 soon after. -- Sixorish 17:59, January 18, 2012 (UTC)
Thank you for the answer, it helped me a lot! However I still have a few questions. I understand the system of how it works now, however I don't think the hive resets as soon as there is only 1 action taken against it more than against deeplings? So there must be a certain number of actions taken against the hive or not? Someone wrote on our server forum that before ss there was about 18 actions taken against the hive, but nothing changed.
Me and a lot of other people have done a ton of tasks today and now it is 232 more actions that have been taken against the Hive, should that be enough?

What stage is it?
According to upper text about advancing etc. I wonder if there is possibility to check what stage of deepling/hive is for example in chat with npc. We can check it manually (for example we just can't pass through some tunel at deeplings, but that costs nothin - entering hive costs pheromone. I have got an idea to check it manualy without paying favor points but dunno if I am right - if stage 2 at hvie is avaliable width of hive wall should be like 1-2 right ?
I suggest that if some1 who know for sure what's opened/closed at hive/deeplings due stages 2 and 3 just add it to the pages :) maybe it'd help to convince ppl to make tasks :P
