TR-116B and the KDF

Hi all,

Not sure if this is a bug or not so I am doing a little digging first!

I am currently running a KDF Alien delta recruit and am trying to equip the TR-116b rifle as I am now doing the Borg arc. The rifle itself is a standard Mk XII very rare that says you have to be a (KDF) Major General (45+) which I am currently lvl47.

However everytime I go to equip the rifle it gives the box saying it will become bound but then gives a message saying 'I do not meet the requirements to equip that item.'

Am I missing something in that I have to be a different level or something, or is this indeed a bug.

Thanks in advance.

    I just checked on my KDF, I have a TR-116B too. It does say Major General which is level 47. I didn't have any issues equipping mine but then again I was well over 50 when I finally broke down and bought it.

    I suggest levelling to 50 as quick as possible and the trying. If still no joy, file a bug report.

    Not just with the TR-116B, and not just KDF, but I've seen a LOT of reports of players in the level 40-50 range being unable to equip the Mk XII crafted "specialty" items although the ranks in the tooltips imply they should be equippable at level 40. Fed officers with omni beams, for example. Captains at level 50+ seem to have no problems, so I suspect it's simply a tooltip error.

    I had the same issue with the Aegis set on my Delta Recruit. Said level 45, couldn't equip until 50.

    Hello all thanks for the replies,

    I did do the rank promotion at 45 but as you have all said if it is a tooltip error I will do some patrols etc. to get to 50 before trying to continue the Borg arc (I really can't be bothered to stand there after two or three shots to keep remodulating the weapon, and doing this arc 6 times in 4 weeks I could do with the break - teach me to level 2 toons before the Delta Recruit went live :) )

    If I still have the poblem at 50+ I'll file a bug report for it and if not one for the tool tip error.

    Thanks again guys (and gals???)

    i think things changed when they introduced level cap upgrade. all mk xii and xiii weapons now require level 50 to equip as far as i remember.

    maybe the tooltip didn't change, or the weapon wasn't put into the upgrade box to refresh it.
    Now clowns, that's another story. They scare the cr​ap out of me.
    We fight them too. Entire armies spilling out of Volkswagens.
    We do our best to fight them off, but they keep sending them in.

    I posted about it here http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?t=1448581

    It's a bug. The TR116-B rifle and other special crafted items incorrectly show you can equip them for whatever rank level 45 is for your faction. The truth is you can't equip them until level 50. Placing the items into the upgrade window doesn't change anything.
