    I wonder if the raider flanking is a tooltip change only or an actual fix.

    I'm not seeing anything which applies to something I've recently found issues with unfortunately. At least others are getting fixes they need.

    The fix to raider flanking and cloaks was to both tooltips and functionality.

    I am glad you like the patch!

    Reputations Mark Trade-In:

    Reputation projects to turn-in marks for Dilithium have been disabled and replaced by a new store, accessible from the Reputation UI once you reach Tier V in that reputation.
    The rate is the same as the existing projects; 50 Marks for 500 ore, or 3 Elite marks for 1000 ore.
    Exchanges on this store may be made in bulk, reducing the time needed to convert excess Reputation Marks.

    Oh great make fleet projects that much harder to complete. :/

    What? This has nothing to do with Fleets. This is Reputation turn-ins. Instead of having to slot these Reputation Items in Projects, you can do the same thing in a Reputation Store. Quick and Easy. No Projects. A time saver.

    I read it as they were taking away the trade-ins & instead you could buy more other items. My mistake sorry.

    I like the changes to HSA/HSE.. the notification for the Feedback Pulse will be especially helpful. I also like the reduced cooldown on ground and space re-enforcements.

    The change to kemocite sounds like yet another nerf, so can't say I am happy about that.

    "•The High Yield firing modes of the Advanced Temporal Defense Chroniton Torpedo Launcher (cluster launch mode) no longer share cooldowns/lockouts with other Cluster-type Torpedo Launchers."
    That's a welcome fix. I removed that from my mine layer as it was not firing due to clusters.

    @crypticspartan Speaking of mines could you fix it so that we do not get less hits as we add extra mine launchers? With 4 or 5 mine launchers I once spent 5mins firing with zero hits. Adding extra mine launchers causes mines to disappear before they hit the target. Which is one of the reason I always argued the 5 slot rear Vorgon ship is no good as a mine layer.

    Video evidence and bug report

    https://www.arcgames.com/en/forums/startrekonline#/discussion/comment/13490005

    “Kemocite-Laced Weaponry has been rebuilt to resolve various issues:”
    When this was rebuilt did the rebuild include the extra line of code that made it useable with mines? Has the rebuilt one been tested with mines? One of the older rebuilds broke it for mines then it was rebuilt again and works at the moment.


    Lots of other goods changes like the hull regen ones.

    If you have not heard of it, then it must not be available in the game. Hopefully, it is for the First Contact Day celebration and not a Loot Crate exclusive. If it is a [shudder]Loot Crate exclusive[/shudder], then there is always Ebay or being lucky with a Youtuber that provides the code.

    Actually I can turn in for 10 EXP from Tier 0.
    Why now Tier V?

    I thought there used to be a war targ available in the C-Store, at least earlier on around the time they introduced combat horta.
  • captaincelestialcaptaincelestial Member Posts: 994 Arc User
    One of these days, when I have the money available, I'd like to get a 3-D ship (I need to save up for one that I don't need a magnifying glass to see the details).

    Goodness gracious, I was thinking of getting a Pioneer-class model when the introductory price was still effective, but money was tight at the time.

    There's enough cool ships to be made with STO ships that lack the registry numbers that would make for cool models, so I'm glad that's fixed.

    Isn't that war targ the one klinks get from the very early rura penthe mission?

    Nope, that's a Jackal Mastiff. Which is also on the list so it's not just a typo/someone forgetting what it's called.
    Logic is the beginning of wisdom, not the end of it.

    @crypticspartan As I feared since the Kemocite-Laced Weaponry has been rebuilt I am getting zero Kemocite hits. Just shot all my clusters and rear mines off and not one single Kemocite trigger.

    On the plus side the new advanced temporal deface torpedo is great.


  • rattler2rattler2 Member Posts: 47,803 Arc User
    The change to kemocite sounds like yet another nerf, so can't say I am happy about that.

    Sounded more like it was inadvertantly bestowing certain buffs to enemies. Meaning that the player was GIVING buffs to the enemy.
    Resolved an issue that caused the tooltip to scale exponentially with damage buffs.
    Resolved an issue that caused the damage to scale with your target's damage buffs.
    Resolved an issue that could cause it to apply beneficial abilities such as the Advanced Piezo-Polaron proc to foes.
    The impact of these changes on this ability's balance may result in additional changes to this ability in future updates.

    I don't think it was meant to give buffs to your target. Also... sounds like it was hitting harder if the target had certain buffs. Nothing about them being debuffed.

    Honestly I'd say its a wait and see thing as the patch notes also say that further tweaking may be required. But I don't want to be making the enemy stronger by hitting them with Kemocite.

    Awesome, I can upload KDF ships now, but I see that BoPs are once again in flight mode and not combat mode while customizing (which means they get uploaded in flight mode). Can we get a way to toggle transformation modes in the Ship Tailor? BoP Wings Up/Down? Chimera Nacelles Up/Middle/Down, Saucer expanded/contracted? Galaxy Saucer Separated/Docked? Prometheus Alpha section only/Beta Section Only/Gamma section only? Garumba Destroyer Normal/Siege mode?

    No they have not fixed it, they broke it badly. I just went into combat and came out with zero Kemo hits. Its way worse then before.

    It's been years since I heard talk of "War Targs" and "Combat Saurs". I thought they were projects Cryptic was working on and never got them working. Last I heard, "War Targs" and "Combat Saurs" became official entries in the KDF's "Book of Grudges", though @patrickngo would know for sure.

    Cooldown on the following Combat Companions has been reduced from 5 minutes to 2 minutes:
    Bio-Engineered Furiadon, Combat-Trained Tardigrade, Dilithium Encrusted Horta, Eisilum Crystal Horta, Holographic Combat Drone, Horta, Jackal Mastiff, Leashed Mugato, Polytrinic Acid Horta, War Targ.

    Cooldowns on the following Space Distress Calls have been reduced from 15 minutes to 5 minutes:
    Activate Phased-Waveform Beacon, Nimbus Pirate Distress Call, Delta Alliance Reinforcements Beacon, Romulan Distress Call - Bird-of-Prey, Romulan Distress Call - Mogai Escort, Romulan Distress Call - D'deridex Battleship.
    Sweet! Always bugged me with the weakness of some of the pets on ground (the Jackal Mastiff on my Lethean Klingon character seems to die very quick). I'm assuming the War Targ is acquired like the base Horta combat pet, as you have to have the non-combat one and do an on ship Doff assignment to raise a combat one? (I ask this also is it possible since my main Fed Character has a Targ Pet from like first year anniversary that I got from one of Q's random gift box-we are talking original ESD layout internally and externally when he was telling us to play in the fountain and stuff, if it is possible for them to do it being the pet is generally Klingon Aligned.)

    I totally forgot about the Romulan Distress Call consumables from the Romulan Reputation.

    Awesome job on the patch fixes overall Cryptic!
