THE PYRUS PROJECT is live on PS4 & XB1 from October 4th to the 18th! Almost four years ago, Vay Hek launched an unprecedented attack on our Relays. We defeated his Fomorians, but not before three of our Relays were destroyed. Now it's time to rebuild. Cressa Tal and Steel Meridian are marshaling the reconstruction efforts. Tal is in dire need of valuable resources to rebuild the following Relays: XB1 - Strata Relay on Earth PS4 - Larunda Relay on Mercury Find them, deliver them, and she will reward you for your efforts. Be warned: Sargas Ruk and the Grineer will not make things easy for you, Tenno. Show them that we will not be intimidated. You will receive an inbox message when you first log in from Cressa Tal with instructions on how to start! WHAT YOU NEED TO DO Assist the Steel Meridian with what they’ve called the PYRUS PROJECT as an effort to rebuild the Relays. Complete the 4 reconstruction tasks listed below and donate the required resources by bringing them to Cressa Tal located in the Strata (XB1)/Larunda (PS4) Relay Reconstruction Site located on Earth/Mercury. The following tasks can be completed in any order! Contribute Pyrus Essence Collect a total of 30 Pyrus Essences and contribute it at the Relay Reconstruction site. Pyrus Essence is collected from Essence Carriers on Earth, Mercury, Saturn, and Ceres. You will receive a transmission from Cressa when an Essence Carrier is located in your mission. Essence Carriers look like Eximus enemies, and they have a special icon identifying their location within the mission similar to Synthesis targets. Contribute Relay Strut Components Craft a total of 5 Relay Strut Components and contribute them at the Relay Reconstruction site. A reusable “Relay Strut Component” blueprint has been delivered to your Inbox so that you may craft the required Components! Relay Strut Components require Trembera Essence, which is acquired as a normal drop from killing enemies. Complete a Simaris Daily Synthesis Task Speak with Cephalon Simaris in one of the current standing Relays and begin the daily synthesis task by selecting “Do you have any targets?” and accepting to perform the Synthesis. To perform Synthesis, you must own and have Synthesis Scanners equipped. You can purchase 25 of them from Simaris in the Relay for 5,000 credits. Kinetic Siphon Traps can also be purchased from Simaris to help make scanning Synthesis targets a breeze. Defeat the Grustrag Three The Grustrag Three are disrupting the construction process. Lure them out and eliminate them! During The Pyrus Project, the Grustrag Three have a chance of spawning in any regular mission (with enemies that are higher than level 3) on Earth, Mercury, Ceres, and Saturn whether or not you are marked by them. REWARDS! 

The following rewards are given throughout the reconstruction effort as tasks are completed!  NEW Zylok Pistol  Pistol Riven Mod Ember Reprise Noggle Liset Athari Skin UNLOCK THE NEW STRATA/LARUNDA RELAY! By working with Cressa Tal, we shall rebuild new Relays. They will stand as a shrine to those who fell in battle — and a reminder to the Grineer that our will cannot be crushed. Completing the reconstruction tasks will grant you access to the new Relay on your platform!
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW You can track your task progress by hovering over the Strata (XB1)/Larunda (PS4) Relay Reconstruction Site node on Earth/Mercury to bring up the task list. This list is also available in the Reconstruction Site hanger next to Cressa Tal.

FAQ: How do I participate in The Pyrus Project?
You will receive an inbox message from Cressa Tal when you log in. She will explain what you need to do to rebuild the Relay. Start with any of the listed tasks and work your way to completing them all.

Do I need to be in a Clan to participate in The Pyrus Project?
The Pyrus Project is a community-led effort so there are no Clan or competitive components to it. We're excited to have our Tenno come together to leave their mark on the Sol System by rebuilding one of our lost Relays Where do I find Pyrus and Trembera Essence?
Pyrus Essence can be found by hunting down Essence Carriers in any mission on the following Planets: Earth, Mercury, Ceres, and Saturn. Attack and capture them and collect any Essence they may have on them. Trembera Essence is dropped from enemies in missions on those Planets. Where do I contribute my Pyrus Essence and Relay Strut Components?
Speak with Cressa Tal in the Relay Reconstruction Site located on Earth (if you are on XB1) or Mercury (if you are on PS4) to contribute! What happens to the Pyrus and Trembera Essence I’ve collected after the Operation is over?
It will remain in your inventory unless you decide to sell it for 10 credits a piece.

Do the Grustrag Three spawned in Earth, Mercury, Ceres, and Saturn missions for The Pyrus Project have the same drop chances as they do in non-Pyrus Project missions? 
Since the G3 spawn at a higher rate in these missions during The Pyrus Project they do not drop any of the items from what you would expect from a regular visit from the trio. However, if a Grustrag Three Beacon is used on these missions they will spawn with their expected drops.

Do Resource Boosters apply to Pyrus and Trembera Essence? 
Resource Boosters apply to Trembera Essence drops but not to Pryus, as Pyrus is not "dropped" from enemies but collected from capturing Essence Carriers.

The reconstruction effort runs until October 18th @ 1:00 PM ET and is available to Tenno of all Mastery Ranks. Together, we’ll show the Grineer that our will cannot be crushed. Good luck, Tenno!
