Artifact Escort is a new activity available on the Archipelago. Across the map a mysterious floating artifact will appear in the sky. The artifact will follow the heaviest nearby ship and any ship destroyed (no engines and no pressure wells) in its vicinity will be transmuted into resources by its unknown power. However, the artifact is always visible on the map and the work of its transmutation can only be claimed by delivering it to a contract fort on the map.
Details on the new activity are available through following the new quest "Artifact Recovery". Completing this quest will also unlock the new Lance Cannon, a new weapon using the same platform at the Flak Cannon.
