Item Database - Beacon Warp

Beacon Warp Icon #16340 The body of the engineer becomes a living beacon that can be to warp other players to the location of the engineer. Setting up a connection with one of the micro-sats that populate the atmosphere of Rubi-Ka, the engineer uses this satellite feed to determine the exact location of the person to be warped. A momentary warp in the fabric of space is created, and that person is instantaneously transported to the location of the engineer.
You may only summon people in your team.

Im a 102 Engie(Bulten) on Athlantean and bought a Team Beacon Warp disc for 15M just the other day(Aug.11 or 12 2003), havent done it to a nano yet though. Been looking for it since about lvl 40ish, and finally its mine for a fair price :)
estboy @ 2004-02-01 20:45
kinda not fair :P
Ariac @ 2005-01-04 12:02
I just managed too cast this at lvl 24. ^^ Freakkin ub0r, needed 204 NCU too manage it though.

Nanomage lvl 24 engie casted with mochs + composite nano + wrangle. (NCU was teh biggest pain, but a subway warper is fun) =P
skybert @ 2005-02-01 21:21
Do the subway allow warps?
Arrone @ 2005-03-29 04:27
well, you can just blitz or roll the item on like a QL 90ish mission. easy as that i believe. if you're a twinked engie or just good, you can get this easily from lvl 60 or so.
Sferykal @ 2005-04-05 09:32
I tried the subway warping because the very idea was hilarious. It doesn't work, at least warping a lvl ~200 and neither a lvl ~31 character did. Beacon Warp itself works, we tried that elsewhere. Because I have seen lvl 31 players in the subway, I assume it doesn't work at all (and warping below lvl 25 players is useless, they have feet to enter the subway on their own :-P).

NCU is not a real pain, all you need is 5x DM, 1x GCB, 1x Ring of the Nucleus Basalis, 1x Notum Ring of the Three, 1x Collar Casero de la Cripta and some carbonum armor. You probably can pull off this stunt even at level 20, very sure at level 21 already without SL and AI even (sure, you need the respective "backup" to access certain items).

And yes, this nano can be rolled for, infact the last time I rolled lvl 93 missions the BW nano crystal popped up regulary as mission reward.
Arrone @ 2005-06-13 07:28
ok, lets just think of it...mochams+140...wrangle+132...generic+20...QL70implants (which are uber easy to get on if the reqs are stam or strength, even agility)+80: that's around 372, already ur stats as a lvl 21ish is around 100 or so unbuffed, but that's a hell lot of NCU, atleast like 220 or so...cause all that adds up to 212 NCU

-GCB adds 20NCU
-DMs adds 27 (times 5=135)
-ring(depends but adds +20 at the end)
-collar of casero+30
*there's a highly chance of u warping when u camp lien as hell for memory loops, then u have the NCU needed: Memory loop times 5=165 NCU+GCB*20+ring*20+carbonum*depends on ql+the collar...u got it made! ok...i find this very very possible, but i find it somewhat a waste of time, i mean, if ur looking for damn ring of nucleus basilis, lol, i think ur somewhat wasting ur time, they only cost 1 mil, but i guess it might be a lot for a low lvl person. but i find this pretty damn cool, bringing in a lvl 200 person in the subway again :D :D woot! he'd pwn every freakin person in there and tear them apart! peace
Sferykal @ 2005-06-20 22:13
1) GCB (15) + 5xDM (5x26) + nucleus ring (20) + notum ring (6) + collar (30) = 201 NCU
2) You have a base NCU of 8, thus 201 + 8 = 209 NCU
3) A full set of carbonum armor, TL 30ish = 7x2 NCU, thus 209 + 14 = 223 NCU total
4) I hate the carbonum helmet, 2 less for a total of 221 NCU
5) I did some calculations with Memory Loops etc.pp. and came up with like 250-260 NCU if I really wanted to do that (it's not necessary)
6) You need to increase 3 nano skills, which means you won't end up with 3 clusters for each; at QL 70 you can assume an increase of about 40 in each of the three skills (see for an actual item setup)
7) I wrote it doesn't work. And no, it was not to get help with Abmouth (afterall with my setup I can get a level 82 bot up as long as the mochams are running). It was the idea itself of getting people warped into the subway, which kept me motivated (and having a nice party in there then :-) Ah well ...
Arrone @ 2005-06-28 04:04
lol. OH JEES!!!!
you can warp people, i just did the math! :P very nice job sferykal. very nice job ;D but it would be a pain in the ass to do everything like that =D i guess i'll have to get my org member's help to get me all that :P with that set up you have, and skills of atleast 100 at lvl 24 this is what i got off ur imps, since MM and MC are 48 and TS is 50, lets have a look: ok, ur nano skills should be atleast 100, so lets start: 100+48+120+132+20=420...think ur short! NOT TO WORRY!!!! get intellegence implants and the intell boost, BAMMO!!!!!!! WOOT! people will be giving you tips of like 10 million or so, IF funcom does something like create a nano that rejects all warps such as ToTW...we're just gonna be mad ;P great job people :D
Arrone @ 2005-08-02 03:33
pfft, me and a friend did it, after the cast was complete, nothing happened. we petitioned it and ARK didnt accept, don't waste ur time people :P
Kingdome @ 2005-10-11 23:54
Does this work in Temple of Three Winds??? I want to warp a lvl 61 char in. Is this possible?
Jeff120 @ 2005-10-11 23:57
Enginner2007 @ 2005-10-17 21:09
So this owrks or not???????
Enginner2007 @ 2005-10-20 21:58
yes its possible, if a lvl 60 engi with small mochams boost can cast it easily and can warp lvls 61-71. if ur engi, this way u can earn biggg money...
Enginner2007 @ 2005-10-20 21:59
btw if ur lvl 71+ u will enter totw but u will be freezed and kicked after 30 secs. duh
Glargh @ 2005-10-21 04:08
I would think this to be somewhat useful when dungeoning or whatever with a team, a member dies and you can just bring 'em back without any hassle. Too bad I always forget I can cast this. :/
Arrone @ 2005-10-29 05:33
u cant even get warped into totw because of a nano that automatically runs while inside the static dungeon. it doesn't allow beacon warps inside the temple, so it's 100% impossible to warp inside totw.
tegrere @ 2005-11-27 23:29
Th nano used to not run, but ppl got mad when a lvl 150 enfo would come in and camp for GTA, styg, and keepers vitality, so FC made the totw no warp nano
wooshell @ 2005-12-06 17:20
Just tried it on DNW.. the BW nano completes, but no teleportation occurs. Several tries, no chance. I wonder how they locked it, considering that you don't get a hostile nano on you like in ToTW.
Twinking wasn't really hard.. lvl 24 nanomage engi, ql 50 imps, 30ish NCUs in Guardian Belt, Mochams and a small wrangle..
Arrone @ 2005-12-14 21:30
yea, easily wooshell
Anonymous59 @ 2006-01-08 02:11
The new Biomare dungeon blocks every warp (I tried it) :-(
And I still got no decent HUD Upgrade :p
Hydrojen @ 2006-01-24 02:21
I can cast this durn easy at 56, just need MC/TS Infuses and MM Mochams - great for helping ommer fixers go to Sirocco :D
Anyone need COH help? /tell Hydrojen RK2 :P
genius71 @ 2006-03-03 02:05
Uhh... it says up there...User Inside Shadowlands == duz that mean i gotta have SL?

ourtown @ 2006-03-14 03:17
Must be on Rubi-ka.
jorgeth @ 2006-10-14 20:23
ho much are ppl paying for theese?
EvulPerson @ 2006-11-09 03:01
WTB 2mil plx :)
Scoville @ 2007-02-13 07:42
You can roll it easy in QL 90ish team (or single) missions. Just go get yourself one.
Jinzost @ 2007-02-16 22:28
yeah i was rolling for some mp nanos like ql 100 and this came up literally every other roll

Im a 102 Engie(Bulten) on Athlantean and bought a Team Beacon Warp disc for 15M

Little did he know if he would have waited 4 or 5 years, he could have just rolled it himself. A little patience goes along way, what ever happened to todays youth?
Ransomnia @ 2008-02-25 04:10
Froob lvl60 nanomage selfcast without expertise :) Neleb + 131 imps + ql100ish Miy's Nano armor set + (Lucu's + JESS's + VTE's for trickle points)

If you have vte's equipped.... why are you using neleb over reanimator's cloak
robapril @ 2008-04-23 20:51
Reani is lvl locked.
rico648 @ 2008-10-01 23:24
neleb's add more now also.
remember @ 2009-05-11 15:45
hehe not bad
Dagger @ 2011-04-23 20:30
selfing at 54 pretty easily, nifty nano ;B
xyz123abc @ 2011-07-29 21:31
You can roll this as a mission reward from level 80 missions. And, yes, it is pretty common (thankfully)
Antagonist @ 2012-02-06 13:58
No one tips for this. Then again, it doesn't have as many uses as it could have, being outshined by fgrid and all.
