Other Tips and Tricks

Sometimes, Seals find resources or tools that are useful to share, that we think are worth sharing. However, these don't exactly fit well in other categories or on other pages. This page contains a few resources that we've found over our time in the Galaxy.

Please keep in mind, this page contains links to resources the Seals are not responsible for and have no control over their content. Please contact us with any questions or concerns, and be careful about what sites you visit on the web.

Synuefe EN-H d11-96
Look for "convoy" and “ship wreckage” signal sources to find the guardian mats per Will’s post here:
