As we reported earlier this week, Cryptic has re-launched the popular and extremely difficult event, “Crystalline Cataclysm” (formerly “Crystalline Catastrophe”). Captains who engage in the event stand to gain the following:
Max-level Federation, Klingon, and Romulan Republic players can queue up for our 10-captain “Crystalline Cataclysm” event to defeat the Crystalline Entity and earn one Crystal Shard every 20 hours. After collecting 14 of them, players can complete a new Event Reputation project to be rewarded with 50,000 Dilithium Ore, 500 Fleet Marks, 250 Marks of their choice (Fleet, Omega, Romulan or Nukara), and aVery Rare Gravimetric Scientist Duty Officer!
Cryptic also mentioned that behaviors of both the Crystalline Entity and its allies have been tweaked, stating that, “Recent intelligence reports reveal that there are a few new tactics the Entity and its allies are using during this event to thwart your attempts of destroying them.”
“Crystalline Cataclysm” is scheduled to begin today and will run until Thursday, October 17th, 2013. You can check out the Duty Officer reward below.
