Attention Tenno! Ostron scouts have reported that the Plague Star has once again made impact on the Plains of Eidolon! Please review this handy guide/FAQ for all the info you need on this returning Operation. 

Also, as a friendly upfront update, your Operational Supply Standing from the last occurrence of Operation: Plague Star is still all intact

Operation: Plague Star
Rally your Squad and defend the Plains of Eidolon!

The infested boil that threatened the Plains is back, uglier and more putrid than before. Vay Hek possesses a toxin that can destroy the boil at the meteorite crash site, but he refuses to help. Steal his toxin and destroy the boil before the Infested make their way to Cetus.

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
Konzu has a Plague Star Specific Bounty for you. Completing the series of Bounty Missions will earn you continued OPERATION STANDING to shop for all the Event Rewards! You should to speak to Konzu at Cetus to begin running the Plague Star Bounty!   

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
The Plague Star Bounty starts with enemies in the Medium difficulty range, but you can increase the stakes. The more Bounties you complete, the more standing you earn toward something new: Operation Syndicate! NAKAK, the oddities vendor, represents the OPERATIONAL SUPPLY Syndicate for Operation: Plague Star! The Rewards NAKAK holds to exchange for standing aren't just vanity - some allow you to increase the stakes to earn more!

EVENT REWARDS!
Much like the way we used a token system for the Ambulas Reborn event, we have taken that idea one step further. REMINDER: NAKAK, the oddities vendor, represents the OPERATIONAL SUPPLY Syndicate for Operation: Plague Star!

Visit NAKAK with earned standing to choose your Operation Rewards! 

PLAGUE STAR SPECIFIC:

EIDOLON PHYLAXIS: Equip to earn more standing and make the event harder levels!
Infested Zaw Components!
Event Emblem!
Infested Zaw Exodia!

RETURNING:
Ether Daggers
Snipetron
Fulmination Mod
Sacrifice Mod

GENERAL:
CETUS items are available for purchase with Operation Standing!
 

CLAN SCORING & REWARDS:
INFESTED CATALYST: Summon Hemocyte for rewards & a higher score! Defeating Hemocyte houses 6 Hunter Set Mods!
HUNTER SET MODS: Drop from the summoning of HEMOCYTES. Infested Catalyst are required for these!
Hunter Adrenaline
Hunter Command
Hunter Munitions
Hunter Recovery
Hunter Synergy
Hunter Track

Once again, you will be able to use your Hemocyte Cystolith to build Operation trophies for your Dojo! As before, the required Cystolith costs will depend on the size of your Clan. The trophy costs for a Ghost Clan are as follows: Terracota 10, Bronze 25, Silver 50, Gold 100. 

Requirements for a Shadow Clan are x3, Storm Clans are x10, Mountain Clans x30, and Moon Clans x100. 

SCORING SPECIFICS:
Please note that a default run earns 1000 Operational Syndicate Standing.
Each used Infested Catalyst is worth an additional 250 (4 max).
Each used Eidolon Phylaxis is worth an additional 250 (4 max).

This means a Solo Player bringing 4 of each can earn 3000 independently, or a squad of 4 with one each can also earn 3000.

 FAQ:

“How do I participate in Operation Plague Star?”
Operation Plague Star can be accessed by speaking with Konzu in Cetus. The first Bounty listed in his menu will be “Operation Plague Star.”

“Where do I turn in my Operational Supply?”
Operational Supply earned from completing Operation Plague Star can be turned in to Nakak, Cetus’ oddities vendor by selecting “Operational Supply.”

“Does my daily Standing cap affect my Operational Supply gain?”
No, the Operational Supply earned in the event is not affected by your daily cap.

“How do I summon Hemocyte to earn the Hunter Mod Set?”
The Hemocyte enemy can be spawned by mixing the “Infested Catalyst” into the toxin during Stage 2 of the bounty. The “Infested Catalyst” can be crafted after Researching the reusable blueprint found in your Dojo’s Bio Lab. Make sure you equip it in your Gear tab!

“How do I use the Eidolon Phylaxis to increase my Standing gain?”
The Eidolon Phylaxis can be mixed into the toxin during stage 2 of the bounty to increase its lethality and increase your Standing gain. They can be crafted using a reusable blueprint available for purchase once you reach the “Collaborator” rank (rank 1) in the Operational Supply Syndicate. Make sure you equip it in your Gear tab!

“Will I be able to build the Trophies for this Operation if I missed them the first time?”
Yep! You will be able to build the Clan Trophies with your existing and newly earned Hemocyte Cystolith.

“Are any items event exclusive?”
Nope! Rewards in Operation Plague Star will return in future events. This means that the Infested Zaw parts will be re-obtainable in future events.
 

“Can my Clan build a the Operation Trophies after the event ends?”
Yes! You are able to craft the trophies indefinitely so long as you possess an adequate amount of the Hemocyte Cystolith.
 
"Is my progress/rank in the Operational Supply Syndicate saved?"
Yes, your rank in the Operational Supply Syndicate will be saved when the event ends and is carried forward.

“Has my Operational Supply Standing been saved from the last Operation: Plague Star?”
It has! We have decided to keep all player’s Operational Supply Standing fully intact form wherever they last left off in Operation: Plague Star!
 

Thanks Tenno! Go splatter some Hemocyte guts around the Plains!

How evil, distracting me from the vault closing by bringing back the event that gives me all the formas I need and then some...

...Yeah, haven't even finished one complete bounty yet and I can already tell I won't try again. No bounty stage rewards, that defense part of the mission takes forever (2:30 when the normal bounties are at 1:30, respect your own rules, DE!), and Discount Lephantis is back to being an unfun bullet sponge (where did the original Hemocyst go, that guy was actually fun). All the forma in the world wouldn't convince me to play this boring mess again.

Made even worse with a bad host... Enemies lagging, I couldn't see the countdown timer on defence and bullets were not registering as hitting the discount lephantis which makes it even less fun... when is that minimum requirement coming, it can't come soon enough. 

Also got to agree, the original version of the hemocyte was a lot more fun to kill, this is just basically stand and shoot till it's dead...

 

Would also be nice if there was something 'new' in the rewards table from nakak, while I'm not against forma, not that I'm really in desperate need, it would be nice to have something like kuva or more plains resources (fairly priced) as options too.

we got 3 revenant chassis blueprints in 1 run, is this going to be a thing now?

Probably, when I saw it in the rewards table I was like... really, they had to dilute the table with a revenant part lol

So you don't count "THE PYRUS PROJECT" as an event while DE does?

That's why I said "Operation Event."

 

No trophy and no badge.

You know it's so nice to have this mechanic left in plague star, even after we've complained about it EVERY time.... players basically leeching off others because they aren't willing to spend their own resources on the items needed is so much fun...

Why this can't run similar to the razorback where we ALL have to contribute I have no idea, or better yet, have individual bounties for each combination where we must bring the required items (if any), there's only 4 combinations after all.

 

It would also be REALLY nice if the game didn't pick players who have pc's that can't cope with PoE to be the host... lagging PoE is not fun.

I never buy forma from this event since you get so many with your rad relics. I buy hundreds of wisps.. because running around a huge map for a handful doesn't float my boat when most things want so many of them to craft.. lol

yeay.. this again... oO

sry DE, you know we love you, but pls: could you return some older operations like ciceros crisis or something like that and not just plague star? it feels like it only re-relaunches to be a filler (still gonna get some extra blueprints and wisps...)

reb: "what can we do now? theres still time left before we'll release furtuna"

background geoff: "plague star LOL!"

team: "we had that one some time ago, like not even 6 mont...."

background steve: "to do do do do dododo do do.. ok do it!"

redtext: "tenno, get ready. a big blobb apears!"

Weird. I just got an Axi relic (can't remember desig) from the last bounty stage, despite there being none on the rewards table. Are we getting better rewards for doing the event bounties multiple times?

Edit: Ok. Got 3 by now and they're all Axi L2. So with things like the void farming going on right now, you have to ask yourself if you're a "glass half empty" or "glass half full" kind of guy/gal/attack helicopter?

Second bounty stage when defending it sometimes self destroy and the bounty fails. It doesn't matter if you play solo or as a client.

Because all I ever wanted for two weeks straight, is being able to be leeched by randoms who don't care to invest into system. How about you start punishing players like that more? If you don't contribute, you don't get equal rewards? That is only a starter thought?

Also, really, Lephantis needs a rework. There are some weapons which make him "poof", and some which are limited because his stupid damage cap per pellet. What is the issue here, with all those "I am immune" bosses in 2018? Care to make more mechanics, since you introduced them all the way back? Time to grow, not make "another invincible bullet sponge" which requires zero finesse. I can understand transition phases, but playing many MMO's made me allergic to "immune bS#&$".
