EPValue is a value assigned to an NPC that is used in determining its strength, and its potential for dropping resources and loot.

  • EPValue ranges from 1 (Weak Heteroclite Drone) to 38 (Dread Wyrd Seed World)
  • A higher EPValue results in increased resources
  • A higher EPValue results in an increased chance of loot drops
  • A higher EPValue results in an increased chance of higher Rarity loot being dropped
  • EPValue is increased by:
    • Scavenger Technology - +2 EPValue
      • Player who strikes killing blow belongs to a Corporation with Scavenger enabled.
    • Alien Hunter Special - +0.5 to +3.0 Additional EPValue depending upon Rarity
      • Player who strikes killing blow has an Alien Hunter equipped.
    • Prospector Special - +1 EPValue
      • Player who strikes killing blow has a Prospector equipped.
        • NOTE: The Prospector Special only has a percent chance to increase EPValue.

Example

A player with an Ultra-Rare Alien Hunter equipped and who belongs to a Corporation with Scavenger Technology enabled kills a Wyrd Reaper.

  • Wyrd Reaper EPValue = 23
  • Scavenger EPValue Bonus = +2
  • Alien Hunter EPValue Bonus = +1.5
  • Final EPValue = 26.5

By comparison, a Dread Enforcer has an EPValue = 26
