Lightning Catcher Initial

The Lightning Catcher is a production structure located west of Barco Para Station in Las Megas. It was originally introduced on July 31, 2015 as part of the timed quest called Storm Season.[1]

A total of 150 assets are needed to complete construction of the Lightning Catcher. This is equivalent to 171 Megabucks sm if one were to buy every asset instead of waiting to receive them from neighbors.
