Community Research is a community driven event.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Community Research is a community driven event that consists of a series of missions. Its purpose is to help Specialist Polo determine how the universe changed recently.

Polo contacts the player and asks for their help with research. Of course, due to their Gek nature it is not simply a favor, but a trade business, and rewards every bit of research data with Quicksilver.

This currency can be spent at Quicksilver Synthesis Companion, a construct created by Polo to help them explore synthesis and creation, transforming Quicksilver into exotic goods.
