Ok. There’s a bug. I killed at least 5 of these Punishing Phase-IV-Z Broodguards in that Overmind Nursery Groves site in Senda, but the system hasn’t given me any Trig/Edencom standing bump. Yes, it has been over 10 minutes since I did this.
I shall report this outrage to the responsible authorities. I will not hold my breath.
