17.2 Preview - Rubi-Ka Conflict
The main content update in the 17.2 version will be a series of new high level boss encounters on Rubi-Ka.
With the arrival of the orbital battlestations a new arms race has begun on Rubi-Ka. With more weapons than ever before being sent to the planet both sides of the conflict are arming up and preparing for battle.
New military units have been reported as setting up camp in various locations across Rubi-Ka from both the Clans and from Omni-Tek. With an escalation in tensions both sides are eager for their supporters and loyal employees to help subdue these new threats to security.

Dreadloch Weaponry and Utilities
The military units have been stockpiling new shipments of unique Dreadloch weapons and items that players will be able to secure from defeated bosses.
These will include new Ranged Energy and Grenade based weapons as well as a collection of special Dreadloch modified weapons and some very unique PVP centric engineering based weapons that debuff your target rather then deal direct damage
There are also a great selection of new utility devices like the Dreadloch Aiming Apparatus, Dreadloch Stabilising Aid, Dreadloch Survival Predictor, Dreadloch Damage Amplifier and various models of the Dreadloch Endurance Booster including Nanomage and Enforcer Special editions.
There are also rumours of smuggled contraband neck boards that have been hacked for use by non-sided combatants.
