General Information

Image

The Scruuge are a sect of radical idealists, motivated by greed and deeply envious of others. The Scruuge claim that the galaxy is too overpopulated, and they directly interfere with trade and government aid programs, especially during busy seasonal trade cycles. Ships are asked to engage and reclaim any gifts taken by the Scruuge if found.

During the Scruuge event, the following temporary effects apply to the entire Galaxy:
-The Scruuge will sometimes blockade random planets.
-Planetary scans have a chance to reveal a 'Scruuge Keystone'.
-The cooldown for gifting artifacts is reduced by half.

Is the medal for the hypernode upgrades still broken? Had a legion mate try it earlier and he didn't get the medal.

Post Re: 2015 Christmas Event: The Scruuge
MrSpock can i say these forum post are extremely unhelpful,
-you dont add previous NPC, so we don't know if they are even in this event or what scan to use. We dont know if rewards or NPC are mission linked as well.
-You dont state previous medal
-And since past npcs arent shown, we cant see past NPC drops.
unless we waste a ton of time going on the wiki and past forum posts. And even then your likely to miss things out, since both option lack all the info.

Now ive looked at the wiki and past pages but want a clear answer as to how my scan i should run to find most/all the Scruuge NPC, if it helps im rank 500ish.

Thanks in advance.
