Nice and fun little quest. It`s always a pleasure when I can unleash the powah of my gunner on something. There were quite a few things that made playing the quest an enjoyable experience for me. First regarding the music that starts up when you fly towards the location. It plays until the first quest scene which is good. I dislike when the music just stops and you still see your ship flying towards a planet in silence, like some past quests do, but here it`s spot on.
The second thing is the Iznuk's left hand wep design. Looks similar to the Arachnids mouth from the 97 movie, which is totally awesome. "Good job!" and "appreciated!" from me to the one from the staff members that came up with the idea!
I also liked that there was a good amount of battles. I would have wanted even more exos to squash :-) but still, there were enough and the quest took me a good amount of time to complete.
The battle scene was short but intense. I ain`t never seen so many Exo Gunners in one place. Enjoyed that!
This part taken from the mission debriefing is also a nice touch: "the Iznuk have reduced their supply costs by 5 percent as a thank-you for your help"
Gives me a warm fuzzy feeling inside when I see that what I did mattered in more that one way.
However, I wish there was more than one reward. Being bimonthly now it`s even hard to deal with gap fillers or just get good stuff. I wish and hope that every quest from this big change (the releases going bimonthly) will have 2 or more rewards, so that more players get to buy something. But I can`t even imagine the amount of time, work, coding and testing it takes to release just one reward, be it an armor, gauntlet, skill/tech etc. So all that you release is much appreciated!
I would love to see a continuation of this quest and more things to remind me of one of my fav movies. Never read the book, but I think I will.
While thinking about a possible quest continuation, I even though of a possible reward.
The carapace aka the shell on the Exo Barnacle Basher's back. That thing could be modified and used as a water gauntlet. And like the Network Deflector, maybe, when clicked on, it could be used to attack, like the monster does with the spikes coming out of it`s back. Just a thought.
Now to comment on the new gun, what can I say, it`s good. I played through the new quest 2 times by only using it, except when I had to use my Veritos on a couple of monsters, and it hits solid dmg with great lucky strike dmg dealt. Too bad I can`t get the lvl 115 one, darn you max lvl cap! I do wish it was a bit smaller like 15 or 20% it`s looks kinda hard to wield. The artwork reminds me of one of them van der graaf generators. It looks good, but like I said seems a bit bigger compared to the player.
Well, this was a long post, so I`ll end it with me typing: Good job with this quest, I had fun and can`t wait for the next release!
