  • Building a second Arrival Site somewhere else on a map allows you to keep carving glyphs even after your opponent thinks he's crippled you. It also provides a convenient safe place to put your Matter Conduit.


  • The glyph for the Arrival site looks like the Hierarchy Transport saucer found in the campaign.
