  • tigerariestigeraries Member Posts: 3,467 Arc User
    well that post didnt shed any light on the matter... eng console but no stats and I guess folks are in game to see the other items in the set which includes a 360 phaser array.

    It go +53.3 % Power Transfer Rate, +20 Starship Hull Restoration and +20 Starship Hull Capacity (at Mk XII).
    The other parts of set will be targetable Tropedo and 360 Phaser weapons (both Cannon turret and Omni-Beam)

    Then we are just missing an Omni Plasma Beam. Of course with the recent Lobi Isolytic Space Set, they could have done much more to make Tricobalts more viable with its (still) 30 second cooldown.

    Still want a TOS blue phaser omni...

    Aside from that, I'm liking the looks of this new set.
    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!

    Looks like a nice set indeed. Looking fun to a, probable, fun mission & the extra reward(s) never hurt neither.
  • djf021djf021 Member Posts: 1,344 Arc User
    I'm pretty excited about this one. I have a new kdf character that I'm getting set up for phasers. 360 degree phaser beam array? That's pretty awesome!

    Don't let them promote you. Don't let them transfer you. Don't let them do anything that takes you off the bridge of that ship, because while you're there... you can make a difference.

    Meet with the U.S.S. Challenger there to investigate the situation - her captain has some experience with the Nexus.

    Ahh, unless my memory is bad; Geordi never had any 'experience' with the Nexus. Unless being close to it counts while the D got blow'd up. ;)

    While I avoid lobi gear due to its ridiculous cost (the details are a debate for another thread), I do wonder what more could be done to make tricobalt ordinance more effective aside from torp-cooldown doffs, plus that one (a fabriaction engineer, I think) that boosts their flight speed, plus the phasic artillery trait (Temporal Operative)... while at the same time having a reasonable trade-off for their raw power.

    Skant probably during Anniversary giveaway week. Interior probably released into C-Store same time.

    I'm tickled pink to finally have a second 360 phaser, I just hope it's not oddly colored so it doesn't ruin my phaser set... I mean, why would I run phasers if not for my ship to "look right"?

    I'm also a bit... concerned... about this torpedo. The damage appears to be lower than a similar level quantum torpedo but with a 30 second cool down. It says the damage increases as it flies but unless it doubles every .5 seconds of flight time, I'm not sure how this is going to be a good thing... plus it apparently favors being launched from a distance which is entirely contrary to the damage fall off of any energy weapons one is (most likely) using.

    I find myself wishing it were some other type of torpedo... like good ol photons, the Enterprise D fired the TRIBBLE out of some photons... would have been super appropriate me thinks. I think I would have even preferred it as a tricobalt mine launcher... Oh well, the 360 phaser seems epic and the two piece isn't bad. Perhaps hoping for the whole set to make it on to my ship was just asking too much.

    Oh sweet lord.. may the omni phaser be blue in color.... *prays hard(ish)*

    Well, for what it's worth, I got it on my KDF and I put it in an Engineering slot without any problem.

    well my toons weren't lvl 50 yet and couldn't equip the console in any engineering console slot...

    Edit: played it with 2 toons, one kdf, one fed, both lvl 20-30. Will try a third one later.

    According to the patch notes the issue only popped up if your character was below 50.

    If your Captain is a Fed, Geordi say, "Good to see you again." right at the beginning of the mission. But I don't remember my Captain meeting La Forge before this mission.

    I guess you Foundry guys need to get to work on that fill in story. ;)

    depending how you define "experience" most of the senior crews of USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-B) and (NCC-1701-D) would have "experience" with the Nexus even though only Kirk, Picard and Guinan are confirmed to have entered it.

    You see they have experience in dealing with energy ribbon that's the physical manisphastation(sic) of the Nexus in real space.

    This will undoubtedly be handy, I have 2 Fed toons that use phasers and they already have the Quantum Phase set with the beam, torpedo and console. The only concern I have about this set is that it doesn't actually boost phaser damage.
