Patch Notes For EVE Online: Into The Abyss 1.0

Released on Tuesday, May 29th 2018

_Features & Changes

Abyssal Deadspace:

Abyssal Deadspace is now available to capsuleers across New Eden. For a full overview of this feature see this Dev Blog.

  • Abyssal Deadspace is a totally new time-limited solo PVE feature that can be used from anywhere in the game
  • Abyssal Deadspace can be reached by activating Abyssal Filaments
  • Abyssal Deadspace pockets consist of three procedurally generated NPC encounters which must be completed to escape
  • Abyssal Deadspace pockets must be completed in under 20 minutes or the pocket collapses, destroying the player's ship and capsule
  • Abyssal Deadspace pockets are separated into 5 different difficulty tiers, with 5 being the hardest
  • Abyssal Deadspace pockets have distinct system environments, each with its own effects and visuals. Note: Environment effects apply to player ships as well as NPC ships.

Dark Matter Field - Bonus to maximum velocity - Penalty to turret range

Plasma Firestorm - Bonus to armor HP - Penalty to thermal resistance

Exotic Particle Storm - Bonus to scan resolution - Penalty to kinetic resistance

Electrical Storm - Bonus to capacitor recharge - Penalty to EM resistance

Gamma-Ray Afterglow - Bonus to shield HP - Penalty to explosive resistance

  • Abyssal Deadspace pockets are populated with a range of NPC ships as well as structures and localized environmental effects that must be exploited to conquer the most difficult pockets
  • Abyssal Deadspace pockets contain a Triglavian Bioadaptive Cache structure, which is the sole source of loot within the Abyss. They have the possibility to contain new technology including Abyssal Filaments, Triglavian Ship/Module Blueprints, Mutaplasmids, and more.

Abyssal Filaments:

  • Abyssal Filaments can be activated from the cargohold of any Tech I or Tech II Cruiser to immediately enter Abyssal Deadspace
  • Filaments are consumed on use
  • Abyssal Filaments can be found in data sites across New Eden and in the Abyss itself
  • When exiting Abyssal Deadspace, the player is returned to the exact position in New Eden from which they entered
  • When activated, Abyssal Filaments leave a trace behind which can be located with combat scanner probes
  • When exiting a tier 4 or 5 Abyssal Deadspace pocket, players will be given a suspect flag

Gameplay:

  • Ships can no longer re-fit in space whilst in warp, or whilst aligning to warp.

Graphics:

  • All Society of Conscious Thought ships (the Apoteosis, the Sunesis, and the Gnosis) have been updated to display effects like those found on the Praxis Battleship.
  • New reccommended specifications for EVE Online are now in effect. See this dev blog for more information.

Mutaplasmids and Abyssal Tech:

Mutaplasmids are a new type of item which can be used to permanently alter specific attributes on existing modules.

  • Mutaplasmids can be found in Abyssal Deadspace
  • All quality levels can be found in any difficulty tier, though the chances improve dramatically at higher difficulties
  • When a Mutaplasmid is used on a module, both the Mutaplasmid and input module are consumed and an Abyssal Tech module is created

Mutaplasmids come in three quality variations:

  • Decayed: Lowest range of effect
  • Gravid: Best average resulting effect

    - Unstable: Largest range of effect

Each Mutaplasmid can only be used on a specific corresponding module group. The following groups have been added:

  • Warp Scramblers
  • Warp Disruptors
  • Stasis Webifiers
  • Armor Repairers
  • Armor Plates
  • Shield Boosters
  • Shield Extenders
  • Energy Neutralizers
  • Microwarpdrives
  • Afterburners

  • Mutaplasmids alter attributes unpredictably by a percent value that falls within a specific range described on the Mutaplasmid

  • Once an Abyssal Tech module is created, it cannot be reverted to its components or rerolled with additional Mutaplasmids
  • Mutaplasmids can be traded on the market under the Ship and Module modifications section
  • Abyssal Tech modules cannot be traded on the market but can be traded in contracts or trade windows

Entropic Disintegrators:

Entropic Disintegrators are a new base weapon system used by Triglavians.

  • Entropic Disintegrators can be used after training the size-appropriate precursor weapon skill

    - Entropic Disintegrators are affected by turret support skills and modules, and use the normal turret damage formula

Entropic Disintegrators have the following unique qualities:

  • Damage multiplier increases with each cycle on the same target, up to a cap
  • Cap is set at 150% increased damage for all Entropic Disintegrators
  • No falloff range
  • Deactivates if target is outside optimal range

The following Entropic Disintegrator variations have been added, and can all be found directly or via blueprints from Abyssal Deadspace:

  • Light Entropic Disintegrator I
  • Light Scoped Entropic Disintegrator
  • Light Compact Entropic Disintegrator
  • Light Entropic Disintegrator II
  • Light Veles Entropic Disintegrator
  • Heavy Entropic Disintegrator I
  • Heavy Scoped Entropic Disintegrator
  • Heavy Compact Entropic Disintegrator
  • Heavy Entropic Disintegrator II
  • Heavy Veles Entropic Disintegrator
  • Supratidal Entropic Disintegrator I
  • Supratidal Scoped Entropic Disintegrator
  • Supratidal Compact Entropic Disintegrator
  • Supratidal Entropic Disintegrator II
  • Supratidal Veles Entropic Disintegrator

Entropic Disintegrators use a new ammo type called Exotic Plasma Charge

  • Exotic Plasma Charges are normal charges that consume on use
  • Exotic Plasma Charges do a mix of explosive and thermal damage types

Exotic Plasma Charges appear in 5 variations at each size:

  • Tetryon - Short Range / High Damage
  • Baryon - Mid Range / Medium Damage
  • Meson - Long Range / Low Damage
  • Occult - Tech II - Short Range / High Damage
  • Mystic - Tech II - Long Range / Medium Damage

  • Ships can no longer re-fit in space whilst in warp, or in the pre warp state (once their warp drive has been activated.)
