Rikti War Zone Badges Missing?

Recommended Posts

Echo Atlas park was trippy cause I never realized how much of it I internalized from Live. I for one welcome new badges. Means thinking of the lore in new and exciting ways. Plus also, badges.

Yeah, moving the badges to the echoes makes no sense.

QFT!

I would point out that if they just deleted excess rwz badges that some people would complain about them being gone was they want to reclaim all badges and that some of the deleted map badges may have been used by some people as their badge title.

 

So now instead they are in an echo zone instead

I had Assunder show up for me between a stack of blue and white boxes and the sand bag wall @ 4008.8, 35.2, -3844.2.  I still do not see the actual badge marker.

Alright I'm making a companion piece for these maps. THANK YOU!!

 

So Numbers will align with these for those who wish to follow along.

 

Rikti War Zone:

- Accolade: "They Are Still Among Us"

 

1- Vanguard Operative- Inside Vanguard Base In front of Borea. (388, -1188, -2418)

2- Trespasser- In front of the Crey building. (979.1 2.3 -737.9)

3- Lifesaver- Right in front of the boarded up hospital doors. (-425.5 15.3 -207.3)

4- Base Jumper- Inside the front door behind the receptionist's desk. Careful of the guns. (3434.7 0.4 511.7)

5- Homewrecker- Inside a shelter set up by Crey, in the center surrounded by tables. (3566.0 0.3 -761.3)

6- Luscious- Off to the left of the HUGE cave entrance in the Devouring Earth area. (4242.9 -24.1 -1861.5)

7- Junkyard Dog- In a park just around the corner from the vanguard base. You'll know you're in the right place what you see broken tanks. (1474.0 0.7 -3722.2)

8- Unabashed- So this SHOULD be in the center of the Rikti ship BUT! I haven't got here yet.... sorry.

 

 

Echo Rikti Crash Site (Ouroboros, portal behind building):

- Accolade: "Crash Landed"

 

1- Ace- On the out stretched Fist of a giant statue. (1359.1 293.7 -273.7)

2- Powerful - In the middle section of the power plant. Hug the East fence. (276.3 84.5 -744.9)

3- Under Fire- So there was a bunch of mobs right where the badge is but the info in the wiki is accurate, just not the picture. (1629, 0, -1047)

4- Scarred- This one was harder to find, but only because it doesn't match the wiki and this picture wasn't uploaded until after I was running around like a chicken with my head cut off... sooo... I look less impressive. It's on a collapsed overpass bridge (you know the ones) next to a destroyed building. (3216.0 -136.8 -3198.1) 168 yrds SW of the Sunken Road marker.

5- Asunder- In the center of a ruined military base courtyard. (3970.0 34.2 -3848.5)

6- Eyewitness- On the tippy top NW corner of the broken building, literally on the wall. Good Luck non-flying badge hunters. (820.1 471.3 -4605.5)

7- Communications Specialist- On the top of the building on the North side of the Northern most radio tower. (959.9 171.5 -1174.1)

8- Shielded- How close can you get to the North side of this ship's shield without touching it? This badge will tell you. (2933.4 -10.2 -6250.3)

 

 

So in the end:

Badges located- 13 of 14

Accolade's achieved- 1 of 2

Patience- 0

You are a life saver Skele101, I never could have done it without you.

Lealandro would it be too hard to put all the exploration badges in their correct zones and none in their echos?

Don't thank me, thank Blondeshell.

 

And moving the badges gives the Echos a reason to be there and a new place to explore. Besides it's not that difficult to get all the Echo badges. It's that final inside the shield badge that's the real drag. :P

I am very pleased people found the badges, and I can go get them myself. Thank you!

 

I will say, however, because I have, until now, believed the new badge thing to be a good move: I very much disagree with the moving of the Ace badge. Moving badges to Crash Site and making new ones was awesome. But the Paragon Wiki, used as a reference by myself and many others, still shows the Ace badge in its original location. Many people also remember the badge location from Live, or use the map overlays dated from that time. While I know this also affects the Faultline badges and the other RWZ badges, this would be less of an issue if that specific exploration badge were not tied to an accolade.

 

I am something of a badger, so I've personally found this changing of badges to be fairly exciting. But for players who are more interested in the accolade abilities, not being able to find Ace as it's detailed on the Wiki, or as they remember it in the game on Live, might prove frustrating. I guess what I'm wondering is why you decided to move THAT badge in particular to the echo instance when it's tied to the Vanguard accolade.

 

That's really my only beef. I love reading all the new badges! I just don't want to see players who aren't as lore-geeky as I am become frustrated unnecessarily.

I'm not exactly a badge hound, but I do tool about and pick some up if I'm bored.  Is there any chance anyone could update the vidiot maps for us, or is that long-dusty code at this point?

So you need to do the Mothership raid to get the Unabashed badge.  But the raid I went on used the instanced version of RWZ, instead of the actual zone.  Can the badge be gotten there, or only in the actual zone?

Good question, I haven't heard of it not being in the instanced versions but I haven't been in any of them either.  Only way to find out, I guess.

To follow up late to this but I had a character without the badge who on instanced did not get, but did get next zone MSR.
