Volatile Ice Storm

The view inside Wightstorm Forwards Base. The snowing effect is visible in all systems affected by the storm.

Volatile Ice Storm is a Metaliminal Storm that moves between High, Low and Null Security systems. During the event, there are approximately 14 highsec, 5 lowsec, and 14 nullsec storms. The center system and its neighbors experiences the Strong effect, while systems 2-3 jumps out from the center get a Weak effect. Volatile Ice Storms can overlap. The sites spawned depend on the security status of the center system (e.g. a low security system in a highsec-centered ice storm will have highsec sites).

Volatile Ice Storms spawn:

  • Wightstorm Combat Anomalies
  • Volatile Ice Fields
  • Wightstorm Data Sites
