"The Edge is a high damage target with a glass hull."



Background

Found in Vorsran, they are a support enemy that elite pilots ride in the Nexar.

Strategy

The Edge is a difficult enemy for players. Two strategies below

If you have Cloak: Cloak and follow the Edge around until it is away from any other mobs, then fire a resistance debuffer like Infested Missiles or Void Tentacles. Make sure you are still behind the edge!! Then fire your high DPS weapon such as Scatter Shell or Nexar Light Wave Generator until it is dead. The key is to stay behind it so that it cannot shoot you.

Non-Cloak: Get it to aggro on you, and avoid any shots it fires at you. Fire a long range damaging weapon or debuffer such as Infested Missiles to make it Q, then rush toward the Edge and Q when you're about to get hit. When you get near enough to it, fire your high DPS weapons and it should fall.

Note: The above approach can be difficult to use and does require some practice and skill.

Weapons

The Edge shoots 3 identical looking but slightly different weapons.

The first weapon (Nexar Edge Blade) is used at long range doing; 248,568 damage (62,142 to health with no armour at 75% resist, 40,392.3 to shields)
The second weapon (Nexar Edge Wave) is used at close to medium range doing the same damage but having much more projectiles packed closer together leading to higher damage as you would be hit by more than 1 projectile.
The third weapon (Nexar Edge Nova) is used when it flees away from the player and is fired in a 360° circle around the ship.
