Description

Dredge is a level 25 - 27 Outpost in Sertao (West of Coral Forest). It can be reached on foot / by LGV on the roads, by using the stationary dropship in Shanty Town or one of the Arcporters in the major POIs.

Amongst the facilities it has an armored dropship that enables players to fasttravel back to Coral Forest.

When a player first starts to jobs in the area, they will get a priority job called "In the Wheelhouse". Upon completion the player will have access to a new recipe in the printer to craft the XLR LGV. In order to be able to start a job in Dredge the player (or the squadleader) needs to be at least level 21.

Once a player outlevels the area, they get a priority job that sends them to Andreev Station (level 28 - 29).

Lore/History

A human settlement that comes under attack by The Chosen and a Titan during the PAX gameplay video.[1] Dredge is a mining facility built on "one of the largest known Crystite deposits."[2]

"Dredge is just one of perhaps several cities that will act as hubs for players. In Dredge, it seems reasonable you can expect to be able to shop for new gear, trade, meet up with other players, and manage your equipment, crafting and other activites that don't require venturing out into the world."

From the official site[3]:

As the Accord’s main source of crystite, Dredge has become a thriving and crucial strategic asset. Home to daring crystite extraction teams, it’s

[sic] proximity to the Melding has also made it a hub of [sic] search and rescue operations, as well as the target of relentless Chosen attacks that keep the Accord busy. But the allure of plentiful crystite, [sic] and the convenient habit of Accord forces ignoring anything that does not impede it’s [sic] production,

[sic] has also made it a sanctuary for criminals, rebels, greed and sin.
To many, Dredge is the best place to help forge this new world, to find new clusters of crystite or find and help new survivors trapped in undiscovered Melding-free fragments. To others, however, it is ground zero for the battles against the Chosen, or a loose and dangerous place where a bold marauder can skim crystite by guile or force and spend it all in an evening of debauchery. Either way, Dredge has become a vital artery in the construction of Ember and the survival of the Accord.
Located in the shadows of the cliffs surrounding the Smokestack Desert area, Dredge quickly became humanity’s most viable source of remaining crystite. After the crash of the Arclight and the resulting Melding disaster, the Accord quickly moved in to Dredge and set it up as its primary crystite extraction operation. While Dredge provides the vast majority of the crystite for the Accord, mercenary armies are relegated to scrounging and fighting over smaller deposits that still exist in New Eden [sic] and some even risk venturing inside the Melding to meet their needs.
