Blueprints are a mainstay of the game. Blueprints come in two different forms: Ship modules (attack, defense, and auxiliary) and the ship itself. They can be acquired through several means:
- Initial Blueprints given out during the initial quests of the game.,
- Blueprints obtained by completing Instances.
- Blueprints obtained by completing Restricted Instances and using Badge Points to purchase the Blueprints in the Web Mall.
- Purchasing through the Auction House using Gold or Mall Points.
The Auction House provides players with the ability to purchase blueprints that other players put on sale, although it is easier than doing the instances, it can get quite expensive for more powerful Blueprints.
Instances are the other way to acquire blueprints, this way is much more cost effective but requires a lot of luck and patience to acquire them. Each Blueprint is matched up with a different instance, the weaker blueprints matched up with the beginning instances and the more powerful ones matched up with the higher ones.
Once the Blueprint is achieved either by opening a treasure box or by buying it in the Auction House , the player must go to their bag to activate it so they can start using it within the game.
Blueprints acquired through Instances and not activated by the player can be sold through the Auction House for Gold or Mall Points . Blueprints can also be sold for Corsairs' Gold at the Galactic Trafficker .
