Milking Edit

Milking a lair is a method for grinding XP or Faction Points. The method consist as killing only the creatures or NPC's at a particular lair from a mission, then leave and do the same thing at a second mission location, then come back to the first one to kill the creatures or NPC's that auto-respawned in the meantime, repeating this process.

The advantage to this strategy is avoiding travel time to grab new missions, and travel time all together can be limited if both mission locations are nearby. The down side is not receiving mission reward credits during the grind.

Milking is also the harvesting of Milk from specific live creatures. See a specific creature page from Creatures & Enemies to determine if a creature can be milked, and which resource type is provided.


Missions are short jobs given to you by an NPC or Mission Terminal. They usually involve going to one or two locations and performing some simple action (e.g., talk to NPC, destroy creature lair). Missions are distinguished from Quests, which are recorded in your Quest Journal and are usually multiple steps with more complex success criteria.
