NOV 24 – DEC 01
EMPIRE HUNTS // VARIKS
This activity requires Beyond Light. Three Empire Hunts are currently available weekly from Variks, the Loyal. You may buy these Hunts for Herealways pieces (Please note: Hunts could cost less Herealways if you have finished certain Quests in Sabotage).
Weekly Empire Hunt
- The Warrior: Phylaks – Defeat Eramis’s military commander, Phylaks, the Warrior.
- Complete 2 Empire Hunts. (Powerful/T1)
- Complete any Empire Hunt on Master difficulty. (Pinnacle)
NOTES: Empire Hunts will cost less Herealways, if you have finished specific Sabotage Quests that lower the cost. To get certain weekly challenges, like the weekly Empire Hunt challenge, you will need to complete Sabotage Quests to unlock them. If you get stuck and can’t get any more Sabotage quests to complete, you may need to complete all Exo Stranger challenges that you may have (except Fragment quests).
Assist Variks in dismantling what remains of House Salvation. With each assignment, you’ll help rid Europa of Eramis’s dark legacy while earning useful rewards. Benefits gained are unlocked for all characters that have completed the quest “Reclaiming Europa.”

EMPIRE HUNT POSSIBLE REWARDS
Cloudstrike is a possible drop from the weekly Empire Hunt (select from Europa map, any difficulty works. I got it on about my 4-5th try on Hero difficulty). You can keep running the Empire Hunt on any difficulty until you get it. I am not sure if this weapon can drop from any weekly Empire Hunt or only from The Warrior (this section will be updated ASAP).
- Mortal Polarity: Precision final blows generate a lightning bolt at the target’s location.
- Stormbringer: Rapid precision hits create a lightning storm at the point of impact.
