The Island

From Steambirds Alliance Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Accessed from Rebel City by boarding an Avian dropship, this procedurally generated area is a war-torn continent which was conquered by the Feline Empire. In the skies above, players are tasked with taking down the imposing war machines of Feline nobility in order to liberate the region from imperial control. Players begin in the center, within the City Ruins, and can reach more difficult regions by flying away from this origin point.

Reinforcement Bosses

Whenever any boss occurring naturally on The Island is slain, there is a chance that a reinforcement boss will spawn. If this does occur, the Feline Empire will name the boss they sent in the chat logs, and a random region within the Noble Estates or Imperial City will be overwritten with that boss's arena (regardless of their actual spawn location, these bosses are classed in a specific region for the purposes of double XP events).

Reinforcement bosses do not count toward liberating the Island, but they still drop equipment based on their level (with Tier 10 bosses having a chance of dropping Tier 9 equipment).

Noble Estates Reinforcements

Imperial City Reinforcements

These reinforcement bosses generally reward large amounts of XP on death (limited by the 50% of next level hard cap for aircraft below Level 20 and the 40,000 XP soft cap for aircraft at Level 20). However, they are usually much tougher to take down than normal Imperial City bosses.
