The Jagged Star can be found in Vibrilian to the North of the main area's recycle station (it is north-northwest of the recycle station). There are other Jagged Star enemies (Jagged Star Blood) in Vibrilian but these are the easiest to kill as they are the closest to a Safe Zone.
Threat Level to players:
Below level 25:
High. Jagged Stars will make quick work of even high level players (30+) that are not paying attention to their health and shields.
Moderate. Jagged stars can still pose a threat to moderate to high level players.
Low. Jagged stars pose little threat to players over these levels.
The Jagged Star is the upgraded version of the Thorn Ambush enemy. It will give chase to your ship but very slowly. It fires a kinetic damage projectile in 5 directions at a rate of about 2 per second. It shoots about 15 and then pauses. Other than the projectiles, it has no other attack type.
Tips for Destroying
Keep your distance and use a long distance weapon to take out the Jagged Star. Lower level players should equip kinetic resist artifacts: without them, you will die very quickly. If you run across a nest of these and you are level 20 or less, activate your shields immediately and get as much distance as you can before you die. Since their HP is not very high, shooting them with a blaster, Eagle Needle, or other weapons like those can be enough: using a damage over time weapon like Acid Blaster, is a waste of time.
The encounter for a level 8 Jagged Star gives the player 390xp.
