Call of the Void isn't going to be fun to get... unless Quantums also count. Actual Void Hunters are pretty few and far between.  

Void Hunters are currently found in specific Kheldian arcs and in the Dr. Aeon Strike Force; That being said they're poised to feature prominently in some planned future story arc content, so you can choose to grind it out now, or do it later when it's easier.

Abandon Sewers now have spawns that may contain story signature enemies (found in the Freakish Lab of Dr. Vahzilok story arc). Defeat them all and you get the badge.

Does "they" refer to the confused elite boss, the final objective boss, or both?

Makes me wonder how many minos and cyclopses are in an ITF. I feel like it's probably about 20? There's one in the first mission, there are like 5 of each in the cyst mission, several in the run up in mission 3 and one spawn that's entirely them, and I want to say 6 of each in the final mission. Not that running an ITF several times is a big deal. Do the ones in Sister Solaris's arc count? I know they're bosses instead of Elite Bosses, not sure if that's a problem.

I know there's an alignment mission that's full of void hunters. I can't remember what alignment or level range it is, but that may be an option. If anyone can remember what it's called, I'd like to look it up. Cloud of Odorous Smoke may be the one I'm thinking of -- it's 30-39 hero/vigilante.

There will be new repeatable missions that should have Minos/Cyclopses as well, from a new contact. Or maybe its just Minos.

Unless the Solaris ones read differently in the files, they should count - boss or EB. They're the same mob, I imagine.

But yes, repeating an ITF is no issue. Easiest 35+ TF for the win.

This badge description gives me a headache. If it takes this long to explain, it's too fiddly.

Words. The badge text is long, but the explanation is simple;

 

Spoiler

The final boss of M6 drops ground fields from adds that it summons - it eats these adds and spawns the ground fields/puddles. You have to fight him in them for the badge.

The badge descriptions in the patch notes are more vague because we obscured the proper names of things so that people reading the patch notes that haven't played the ASF aren't completely spoiled on who they fight.


The hints in-game that unlock after you have done the ASF once are much more succinct, using the exact names of everything you need to do.

With over 1500 badge titles, you don't have to use that one if you don't like it. There are plenty to choose from.

There are a lot of sewage-themed characters who've already expressed their excitement to use this badge title.

In the new expanded Cimerora areas, there are many Cycopses and Minotaurs wandering around for zone hunting.

Try the mountains to the northwest of where you fight Romulus in the last ITF mission. One of the new exploration badges is found there as well. 🙂

This might be a minor nitpick, but I don't like that the various sub-badges related to the ASF all use the same graphic. Is there not some way to differentiate them based on appearance, even slightly?

What if we named it "Dealt With Who Smelt It", then it sounds like it's a description of what the badge is for, too.

 

Oh no, it took no time at all for "dealt" to lose all meaning

Spent some time street sweeping in Cimerora - and these don't appear to be dropping as Tip missions...  Since Cimerora isn't part of the Zone Teleport System, is this WAI?

I thought about that too, but since it takes development time to make those exploration tip missions, I'm guessing those were not done.  (And I don't see anything in the patch notes)

 

I just found Darkness Unleashed based on the clue that Cobalt gave.

This is exactly the reason. The Dr. Aeon Strike Force was my primary development task for Page 3, and it was one of the first things started and one of the last things finished. It by far took the most time to make out of all of the Page 3 additions. Since I'm also the dev that does the Tour Guide tips, they simply had to be postponed to get the ASF done, as it was a higher priority for me to be working on.

Expect the remaining zones to get their Tour Guide tips in Page 4 though!

BTW, I am disappointed not to find "Vision of Ambition" at Sister Airlia.     (Though now starting a sweep of everywhere to find that elusive thing and I assume I'll go "Doh!" when I do find it
