Tansarii Point Station Space
Welcome, new pilots! Here I'll teach you how to go about your space missions on Tansarii. It's very easy to get through them all in one go, if you'd like, but it will take a couple of hours minimum. So strap yourself in to your pilot's seat and let's get started!
Keep in mind that while you're out doing space missions and killing things in, well, space, you'll get access to new parts for your ship! Some of them will be better, some of them will be worse. Here's how you'll go about accessing these parts and installing them to your ship.
Run to the Starship Terminal on Tansarii Point Station, and use the ~ key (Tilda Key) to open up the radial menu. Select Option #2 (View Components) and look through what you have installed and what you have available. Notice stat differences, and if you see something that looks better give it a try by pushing "Load". If you don't end up liking the changes made to your ship's parts, you can always put the old parts back in there.
Your very first step is going to be to talk to Serissu. She can be found in Hangar Bay 1 standing right at the entrance. Speak to her to receive your first pilot mission, appropriately named, "First Pilot Mission."
It's pretty straightforward. Launch into space, go to Station Gamma, come back.
The next step to this quest-line will be to talk to Serissu again. She will congratulate you on learning the basics, and then send you out again on the mission Patrolling for Black Sun. You'll have to fly to an abandoned space station "Abandoned Hulk" and kill the three Black Sun Fighters hanging out around it.
Go back, turn it in, and go on the next mission named "Escort". During this mission you will need to escort a Car'das Officer's fighter to safety, and will come in contact with a few Surprise Attacks. My method behind these missions is always to target your escort and /follow it -- so as to avoid losing it. Go forward, attack your attackers, and then /follow the escort again. Repeat until the end of the mission. Go back, turn it in.
The next mission you will receive sends you to your next trainer, Laetin!
Laetin will send you on the mission Searching for Black Sun.
This mission is more complicated than it seems, as there is one particular part people have issues with. Luckily for you, you're reading this guide!
You have to fly to three different waypoints in space, no big deal there, right?
Next, you have to find the miner. The correct
miner. There are plenty of them out there, but you're looking for one in particular. It happens to always be this one
You must target this particular fighter
in order to complete the mission. The NPCs around you will continue to attack the target, but fortunately for us they have worse aim than a Stormtrooper shooting at a Womp Rat.
Use [ to target the Engines, and disable the ship. Stop firing after the target's engines are disabled or you will have to wait for it to respawn and try again
After you've disabled the target, press "I" to inspect the ship, and then "U" to immediately begin docking with the ship. You will then receive the following results.
Next you'll have to fly back to Tansarii Point Station, but not land immediately. A Car'das agent will meet with you right next to it, and you'll have to dock with him. Afterwards, go ahead and land for your next mission.
The next quest is named, "Escorting the miner back to Tansarii Point Station"
During this quest, you'll basically just sit back and watch the Freighter fly towards the station and then hyperspace away. There's one surprise attack in the meantime, but just like the last escort mission just target the freighter and /follow until they show up.
Land, and receive your next quest: Warning the Allies
During this quest, you'll be given a waypoint roughly 5km away from the station to talk to the Dynath Agent. Upon his arrival, two Black Sun fighters will appear. You must destroy these two fighters and then dock with the agent. Afterwards, you'll be updated to "Black Envy, a Virus?" and given a waypoint 4.5km away.
Fly to it, and a Car'das agent will appear out of Hyperspace. "Do what you normally do" when you need to interact with a friendly space craft. Dock! "U" -- Afterwards, you'll return to Laetin.
Laetin will now give you "Assassinating the Assassin" -- to kill Talon Cobra. Launch into space, and fly to the given waypoint. You'll be ambushed at the second or third waypoint and then Talon Cobra arrives. Easiest way to deal with him would be to target his engines and disable him, then kill him.
Return to Laetin, and he tells you he's done with you. Now you'll go talk to Aleas, the Irish(?) Zabrak.
Your first mission with Aleas will be "Patrol: Bright Jewel Ribbon"
During this mission, you'll be given two waypoints. Go to both, and at the end of the first you'll need to destroy 4 Black Sun craft. There are 3 waiting for you at the second waypoint, and one more semi-close by. Once you're done, fly back and speak to Aleas again.
She will now give you "Kallor Brothers Rescue" -- When you launch to space you'll be given a waypoint leading to Weris's ship. When you arrive, you'll have to destroy his Black Sun escort and then target Weris's ship directly. Hit [ to target his engines, and fire until the engines are down. After that, he will contact you and you'll both start flying again. Destroy the surprise attack ships along the way, and he'll hyperspace out.
Next up is Sulale. Fly to the provided waypoint and target Sulale's ship. Press "U" to dock with him and begin repairs on his ship (Automated after docking) and he'll start flying again. Follow and escort him to safety. When he's safely out of the system you'll receive "The Return Home" - but the waypoint isn't Tansarii! Fly to it, anyways.
Upon reaching the waypoint provided, it will be changed to something closer to Tansarii. Fly to it again, and you'll be ambushed by two ships. Destroy them, and then fly towards Tansarii. 6 more appear, it'll be a fight, and you have to win it to complete this quest. But do it, and you'll be allowed to go back to Tansarii worry-free.
Land, and Aleas will provide you with another quest, "Black Sun Attacks" - go ahead and start it!
This mission gets a bit more complex. You have to fly to a given waypoint to destroy Black Sun Hunters or Black Sun Blood Stalkers. Neither of which spawn frequently in this area. There are, however, some near-by. I would advise going to /way -2234 2395 -36 to find more hunters that you can kill.
After you've done so, you'll be given a mission update to rescue an Agent in the thick of battle. I would advise that you go to this area, killing things as you're able to without prioritizing it, and dock immediately with this agent. After you've docked, he'll fly off. Follow him at a distance, and continue to turn around and shoot the enemy fighters that will tail you. This part gets complicated, and you may have to repeat it.
Next, you'll get "Caught in the Crossfire" -- and you'll have to go rescue a Dynath Agent. Fly to the given waypoint, and meet him there. You'll have a simple escort mission that has a few ambush points, but not much else. After this, you'll be grateful to head back to Tansarii Point Station!
Next, and against the wishes of Aleas, you'll launch a counter-strike against the Black Sun. Start "Vendetta : Vile Black Sun"
Rememer the waypoint earlier? It'll come in handy, now! You're not given a waypoint by the game, as your quest giver doesn't want you doing this. She doesn't think you're ready. Prove her wrong! You are
ready. You read the Newbie Guide to NGE!
Go to the waypoint I gave you earlier and destroy two Black Sun Hunters or Blood Stalkers. After that, it will update and sit for a while. Kill some Black sun in the meantime, and an Ambush will occur! Defeat your ambushers, and then Arlem Demonhunter will appear. Destroy his ship, and then fly back to Tansarii Point Station. See? You were
Finally, Aleas will give you some credit, and send you to Dartas.
Dartas will give you this mission "Precise Maneuvers"
The very first part of this mission is to go to a given waypoint, roughly 5km away. This will take some time, so kick back and enjoy the ride.
This mission does get hectic, I will forewarn you. It takes us to the area of Tansarii's Space that I least enjoy going to. Now, you'll have to kill roughly a total of 9-10 Black Sun Hunters, Bloodstalkers, and Spies before this mission is completed. Not all of them will count, but some will. Ultimately, just prepare yourself mentally and your ship physically
for this mission.
At the end of it all, you'll land and talk to Dartas again. We're getting very close to the end now, so don't worry...After the Trinity
Now, this mission sends you 5km away from the Space Station once more, but this time to a different location. The thing with this mission is that it's essentially timed. You have to destroy everything in a fast enough manner to disallow the enemy craft from exiting the system into Hyperspace.
The way I like to go about this mission is to destroy the five fighters while slowing inching away from the station, as their respawn rate is ridiculous
, and then when the commander arrives type /target commander and push the [ button to disable his engines, leaving him helpless. Turn around, destroy his fighter escort, and then kill him and proceed to the next waypoint. That's a perfect world, this isn't a perfect world. Try that, and don't be disheartened if you explode. If you have the next part of the mission, you're golden.
Rinse and repeat for the second part of the mission, then return to Tansarii Point Station and talk to Dartas once more...Enter Darkveil Eclipse...
You're now sent on the final space mission for Tansarii Point Station. Many believe that this mission is difficult and should have at least two pilots doing the mission if not more. I agree, but I don't have another pilot to do this with me at the time of writing, so I'm going to tell you how I will go about solo'ing it -- which is probably for the best, because you're
also likely going to solo it.
So the first part of the mission is to go to the given waypoint to disrupt enemy reinforcements. You'll only have to kill two ships at said waypoint, but more are around and will attack you on sight. The key to this is destroying the two ships that matter.
Next, the mission log updates. You're told to go to the new waypoint as "This is where the battle will take place, go pilot!" -- When you arrive there are NPCs of both sides dogfighting and it's up to you to save them! Destroy the 5 target ships, and the mission is complete. You will now return to Tansarii Point Station.
Land and talk to Dartas, and he will give you the "Hero of Tansarii Point Station" badge!
Congratulations, Pilot! You've finished the Tansarii Quest line!
I would also like to point out that doing only these missions
got my character to Level 8 by themselves and earned me 46628 Credits minus the cost of repairs. So doing just space will get you pretty far in this game!
Good luck out there, Pilots!
