    What happened to the 400 Lohlunat Prize Vouchers from the first day?

    They don't exist. You gotta grind them out.
    Space Barbie Extraordinaire. Got a question about Space Barbie? Just ask.

    Things I want in STO:

    1) More character customization options such as more clothing options, letting the toon complexion affect the entire body, not just the head. Also a true RGB color picker applied to all costume and appearance options, which would allow for true appearance customization and homogenous colors instead of "this same exact color looks vastly different on two different pieces."
    2) Bridge customization, not bridge packs. Let us pick a general layout and adjust the color palette, console appearance, and chair types, as well as more ready room layout options.
    3) Customizable ground weapons, i.e. The aesthetic look of phaser dual pistols but they shoot antiproton bolts. For obvious reasons this would only apply to standard ground weapons.
    4) For the love of Q please revamp Plasma Ground Weapons. They look like demented Supersoakers right now.
    5) True Vanity Impulse and Deflector effects similar to Vanity Shields.
    6) A greater payout for hitting T6 Reputations. Currently it takes more time and resources to get from T5 to T6 than it does to get from nothing to T5. Make that grind really pay out at the end.
    7) Mirrorverse Refugee event similar to AoY/Delta/Gamma, complete with new Mirrorverse recruits for all factions.
    8) Independent Faction, because yo ho yo ho a pirate's life for me!

    Um... Q has nothing to do with the summer event... He does the winter event.

    Hi Dev Team
    I just wanted to say thanks for all the effort you put into the new "Artifact Scavenger Event". It's a nice use of the scanning mechanic that we really don't see enough of, and the description of each artifact includes some really nice references to Trek lore.

    Thanks for making the extra effort.

    It seems, & this is just a guess by my own experience, using scientific method, & chat, that if your character is AoY created you don't get a Transwarp to Risa option at all. Whereas, all other created characters do.

    Well I don't have the option to Transwarp to Risa on any of my toons, regardless of faction.

    Hmm. So it looks like the event schedule is about 1.5 hours long now. 2 artifact hunts, 2 powerboard races, 2 biathlons, 1 dance, 1 horgahn hunt. Makes it a bit harder to know when to log on for the event you like, at least for the dance & H.hunt...

    I recall last year that there were two dance's and one artifact hunt, now it seems to be the other way around.

    no i am pretty sure there use to be a portal to risa via Q... KDF couldnt go to Risa... they had to port over so Feds had to portal to there as well.

    Edit: No Q, but when you do the event pop up/advert... there is a transwarp button for folks... except for AOY toons. Screwed over yet again.
  • tigerariestigeraries Member Posts: 3,484 Arc User
    ok yes confirmed AOY screwed over... they are missing the Transwarp to Risa. My Ferengi Delta toon has transwarp. Pls fix with next patch.

    Well the Klingons for the Mok'Bara finally showed up so I was able to complete the Master Relaxer Accolade. They show up on the hour at the half hour, i.e. 1:30, 2:30, 3:30, etc. You have to be right there on top of the Arch as they only stick around for less than 15 SECONDS. This is so broken.

    Boff Training Manuals and Kit Modules are no where near being compatible with the cost of the Manuals/Modules from the Winter Event. So outfitting one Character with the 3 Kit Modules and one of each of a Science, Tactical, and Engineering Boff with three Manuals each would cost::

    Modules: 3 x 1,000 = 3,000
    One of each Boff Type x 1,500 = 4,500
    Three VR Doffs x 1,000 = 3,000
    Total 10,500 Favors

    Hope the Metrics©® are worth it.


    Edit: Corrected Boff Manual Costs

    I looked over the costs on these and there is a definite discrepancy here, and has been for years, You could buy a Winter Event kit module with the stuff that you got on one character running everything that rewards commodities in one hour, and probably have some to spare. If you ran every activity on Risa, assuming that you were not so so good at the powerboard race and biathlon and only got the minimum 15 favors, it would take you almost 4.5 hours.
    This is an MMO, not a Star Trek episode simulator. That would make for a terrible game.

    Turns out a handful of the Risa costumes show up in Off Duty. So the Rash Guard outfits might end up in Off Duty as well, since they're just t-shirts & shorts.

    it would be useful if anyone had a definitive list of which Risa costumes are Off Duty, so I'd know which ones to seek out and unlock.
    Unfortunately, the one piece swimsuit I want is most likely not an off duty compatible option.

    But from reviewing the notes on the costume problem I am trying to fix, I don't think Off Duty applies to BOFFs anyway, so getting the unlock wouldn't be helpful.

    I'm quite positive that almost anything you find in "beachwear separates" tops is available as off-duty. Swim bottoms and one-pieces are restricted. But I can't confirm it without a doubt.​​

    Yeah, Off-duty doesn't work on Boffs. :/


    Just checked on my "main" character. She has the Explorer top, two of the buttoned Hawaiian shirts, and the Sling/Retro/Mini-T/Criss Cross tops available in Off-Duty. The open shirts and the String Bikini top don't show up. The Explorer shorts are in Pants, Tucked High category (unlike the Terran shorts, which are in Pants, Tight.)

    Try afternoon :30s. Got mine yesterday at 2:30 EDT. The Klingons might not be getting up early due to Bloodwine hangovers from all the Risa partying. :)

    With the way the events are scheduled now, I've nearly completely given up on Risa for this year. And if it stays this way moving forward, the event, for me anyway, will be a 5 minute mission for 25 days to unlock the event ship. And that's it.

    With the 90 minute rotation of events, that means I can log in (and have) and not see the events I want to run, the Dance Off and Horga'hn Hunt, and have no idea when I'd be able to come back to see when they would show up. Set time for set event was the best.

    So now instead of enjoying Risa, I'm basically ignoring it.

    Add in the fact that the item cost is far too expensive and the ability to earn Favors is so small, especially now this year, and I see no reason at all to spend any time on Risa past the mission for the ship.

    I'll just get what I can and call it good. I am a minority of 1. I cannot, nor should I, keep others from enjoying the event. Just because I don't find the fun I used to with this current iteration doesn't mean that other players aren't having a blast. To those people, I say continue enjoying the event, don't let people with negative attitudes ruin your fun, including me.

    My take on the event as it current is

    Positives of this years Risa Event:

    Account unlockable, cross faction ship

    New kit mods, training manuals for BOffs and beachwear outfits

    New non-combat pets

    New colors for floaters/hoverboards


    Negatives of this years Risa Event:

    High cost of virtually every event store item, including the new kit mods, training manuals and new beachwear outfits. I have no idea how much the new floaters/hoverboards are, but I'm betting they are 1000 Favors each

    Low ability to earn Favors

    Events on too long a schedule making it difficult to find time to do specific ones at set times

    No Competitive marks for Monkey/Bird trade in

    After giving the Biathlon a try:
    [Mission] Check in at the flag before equipping your floater!
    How do I do that? I didn't see a flag to check in at. Did it vanish because I probably was last?

    Anyways, it was a rather frustrating experience, probably won't do it again. Same as with last years addition, the artifact hunt. Risa is losing its magic rather fast now.

    Yeah, that got me too the first time. Transitioning from water to air requires you to go up the beach on your board until you get to the ramp that goes through a ring. "Checking in" is as simple as going through the ring. BUT... don't turn your floater on before then or you'll get DQ.

    You mean I have to take the first ring with the board? Then why the talk about a flag? Thanks anyway, I'll try that.
