Stage 3: Waypoints 10 to 11
GMP Designation: Boreas & Styx
Codex Region: Newton’s Vault & Formorian Frontier

Morphenniel Nebula to Luna’s ShadowApprox. Direct Distance: 14,456 LYs (2-week journey)The Boreas Expanse to Aphelion Mapping Survey begins from the WP10 departure and stretches all the way to Luna’s Shadow (WP11).

Note that the Mapping Survey will last 2 weeks.There will be no scheduled meetup for the weekend of April 12th – April 14th. Arrive at WP11 for the weekend beginning 19th April.For full details on what the Mapping Survey entails, please visit this post : Link

During the mapping event, we’ll have 2 weeks to reach WP11. Commanders taking part in the survey are therefore encouraged to spread out and explore the neighbouring regions.

The following POIs are to be considered as optional meetup points for commanders looking for wing-mates or setting up their own survey teams. No official events are planned for these two locations as the organisation team will be taking a break during the weekend of April 12th-14th.

Stage 3: Mapping the Aphelion.

The Aphelion regions are a vast stretch of the galaxy that little is known about, with few points of interest to break up the monotony of the hyperspace grind. It is here were fleet attrition will be at its highest. The mapping event is designed to give participants goals to achieve, as well as providing a wealth of new information and interesting POIs for the Galactic Mapping Project – a goal that will benefit explorers and expeditions that traverse this region long after DW2 is over. A successful mapping event of the Aphelion will be one of DW2’s lasting legacies.

Stage 3 will be one of the longest stretches between waypoints, in excess of 14,000 LYs between meetups, but players will have a longer time period to travel the distances
required… 2 weeks between the scheduled waypoint meetups.
