Star Fortress – Overview

The Star Fortress is a massive battle station orbiting the planets Arcann most wanted under his control.
They are powered by Sun Generators capable of venting their excess plasma onto the planet below.
The threat of instant devastation holds the world populations hostage and serves as an effective warning.

In overall command is the Exarch, a biological and cybernetic enhanced Knight of Zakuul.
The computerized support of the station comes from the use of an EPHEMERIS AI system,
which is able to transfer its functions into a droid form.

Despite their potential, these battle stations have very little external defences…

Dying in Star Fortress:
This is worth dying – I recommend trying;)


Star Fortress – Solo Mode

Once you have completed the “Battle for the Stars” initial quest, you will unlock the Star Fortress
solo mode for each of the six planets (Alderaan, Belsavis, Hoth, Nar Shaddaa, Tatooine, Voss)

There are a set of achievements for killing the Ephermis droid at the end of every Star Fortress
in solo mode. If you complete all of them, you get a legacy title “Physical Backup Unit”.



Star Fortress – Heroic Mode

The heroic Star Fortress isn’t too different from the solo mode until you get to the Ephermis druid.
Instead of fighting the druid, you will encounter two groups of mobs, each with an elite Knight of Zakuul.
Defeating them will allow you to proceed further in with a whole another level to get to the Exarch.

Unlocking Heroic Mode:
Completing the “Battle for the Stars” initial quest will trigger alerts from the resistance contacts.
Talking to the resistance fighters will start a series of quests on each planet and unlocks
the HEROIC 2+ version of the Star Fortress on each planet.

It’s a HEROIC 2+ mission, but you can do this solo – if you gear is poor use the buff terminal

Buff Terminal:
At the starting point you can find a terminal that will give you buffs from each of the Alliance Specialists.
(requires influence rank 3 for each buff)
