    No the recruit unlocks are always the same no matter what class you play. Theres never been any benefit to making a character of all three classes for recruit unlocks that i'm aware of.

    As I understood it, yes, the different classes were supposed to have, by default, different Reputations and Crafting Schools (to 15) done, as well as different Skill Point allocations.

    I can say that since I made my Jem Sci.. this is like right. As it was skill pointed hardcore for sci. Almost to the first ultimate for space. As far as Reps, I had Nukara and Iconian set to max. R&D, i know right off Science and Shields were set to 15. I did Beams to level 10, and got the token for either cannons, engineering, or ground to be set to level 10.

    Oh hang on. I re-skilled my KDF Jem... so i can't show anything there. I do have my Fed Jem, that I don't do much with so I can screenshot this for ya.

    On my jem vanguard tac and sci toon the specialisation and reps are exactly the same intel and command and the reps are nukara, omega and Iconinan
  • djf021djf021 Member Posts: 1,361 Arc User
    I think the preselected skill trees were not very well done. For example on my Tac, the ultimate was almost unlocked, I think two selections away. Trouble is, if you're going to go past the previous marker but not all the way to the , it's wasted skill points that could be used elsewhere. I re-specced him pretty quickly.

    What does everyone think of the use of the Ketracel White? I find it a little irritating trying to remember to use it every five minutes, but the added run speed alone probably makes it worth it.

    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.

    I have never used the Ketracel White at all since with no possible way to identify with the horneytoad it is too much of a nasty grind to do anything with it on the ground and I do not think Ketracel does anything for the ship (though I could be wrong, it never occurred to be to check that in game).


    All in all the gamma recruit thing is nothing but a nice farming ship as far as I am concerned, there is no value whatsoever in playing it as a character. I wish there was a way to upgrade the useless Jem'Hadar captain to a Vorta, as it is when I get the summer T6 I may end up deleting my gamma to make room for an actually playable character.

    Resolved: Gamma Recruit Objectives: I Only Count 39 out of 40 Tasks

    Hopefully, in 3 weeks time my Gamma Recruit Objectives will be complete.

    However, the Dominion Transponder indicates there are 40 Tasks to complete. I only count 39 Tasks.
    Please check my math and can anyone provide any further explanation? Is this just Cryptic being Cryptic?

    Resolved: On 06/28/2018 the Featured Episode "Home" was added to the Gamma Quadrant Story Arc and subsequently to the Gamma Recruit Domination Transponder. The Gamma Recruit Objectives and required Tasks are now equal, 40/40.

    Options:
    1. Typo
    2. Hidden objective

    I know which one I'd like it to be. Also know which one it's likely to actually be.
  • iamjmphiamjmph Member Posts: 210 Arc User
    is there a way to see how many queue's you've run? And how many count towards the Reward? For the past week ive been running 8-12 a day(2-3 CCA, 2-3 of each RA's and 1 swarm) and i was doing at least 5 a day(1 of each previously listed) before that. I should easily have that reward, unless its not counting the RAs still.
  • djf021djf021 Member Posts: 1,361 Arc User
    Question:
    Can Gamma recruits not benefit from the rewards unlocked by other Gamma recruits? Now that I'm typing it I guess it sounds silly, but I was really hoping my first recruit could assist my second recruit with all his rep marks...

    No.

    I logged on a few days ago and saw "claim gift" from the logout screen. I clicked on it and got like 10 free upgrades, retrain token and xp boosts. However, when I logged on my bro's account, there wasn't any rewards. Can any1 clarify the condidtions to receive such rewards?

    Thx
  • anazondaanazonda Member Posts: 8,399 Arc User
    A few searches around the forums havn't really yielded a proper answer (it's not spelled out clearly anywhere), and Reddit is... well... reddit.

    So I am in the middle of something I havn't tried before: I've been on vacation in the middle of this event, and I won't be able to complete all the assignments in the Gamma Recruit list.

    Now I know that certain bonuses (such as the extra salvage) goes away after the 18'th, but can I complete the remaining assignments for rewards afterwards?
    Don't look silly... Don't call it the "Z-Store/Zen Store"...
    Let me put the rumors to rest: it's definitely still the C-Store (Cryptic Store) It just takes ZEN.

    Yes, you can complete any of the rewards at any time, you only need to make the character and receive the Gamma Device and you're good to go.

    Many objectives like the Duty Officer and Crafting schools won't be completed by most before the event ends, luckily they don't require that.

    You can finish the objectives at any time.

    Thanks... I know it's been answered SOMEWHERE before, but I simply could not find it...

    I figured, but it has never been an issue for me, since it always matched when I was on home vacation, so I did not have to pay attention to that part.

    And while I literally H-A-T-E having to go through everything again, the rewards for my Main makes the work worth the efford... Then of cause, it's going to the shelf like all my other alts, never to be used again :)

    I'm trying to level my character to get the rewards. Does it say anywhere how many specialization points I've spent, or do I need to actually count?

    Also, no one seems to want to add me to a fleet.

    There aren't any counters. So you need to count actually. Basically fill one spec and you'll get all the point rewards for it.

    The same goes with the 25 and 100 queue rewards. I've never seen a counter on them. So, you'll just have to check those as you.

    I believe that hovering over the bar on the bottom of the Specialization page - where it tells you about which unlocks you've acquired - will tell you 'X points spent' in that Spec.

    Or, as trennan has pointed out, filling out one whole active spec should do it for the 30, then 2 more after that for the 90.

    Gamma Jem vs REP -

    Has any one else had the issue where your Gamma Jem finished T3 Rep, and does NOT have the "Claim Level 3 Rep" Upgrade mission available ??

    My Jem is about 1/2 thru T4 Rep and the Claim Tier 3 Rep Upgrade still hasn't shown up..tyvm..

    Yup, counting is the way to go I'm afraid.

    As for a fleet. I run a Lvl 75 Casual Fed fleet if you're interested. Just send me a mail.

  • wideningxgyrewideningxgyre Member Posts: 690 Arc User
    In the window for each specialization, if you click on the name at the top left, the information in the window on the right that describes the bonuses will tell you how many points you've spent in that specialization.
  • tigerariestigeraries Member Posts: 3,482 Arc User
    you need to earn/spend 90 spec points. if you ignore the 3 2ndary specs (those with only 15 points) and finish the remaining 3 main specs that would be 90 points total (assuming your a vanguard JHD)

    That's impossible. The XP projects don't appear until you've done the tier upgrade.

    Go to this page https://www.arcgames.com/en/forums/startrekonline#/categories/sto-feedback

    If you are Fed, select Earth Space Dock, KDF, select Qo'nos, or, if you are Romulan and want a Fleet specific to Roms (even though it will actually be either a Fed or KDF Fleet) select New Romulus. Unless you happen to be a well known scammer/general bad egg, guaranteed you will find so may Fleets to join you'll have a tough time making a decision.

    Check my siggy, we are always looking for new players.

    Edit cause I noticed it hard to make out at the bottom of my siggy, www.ufplanets.com
    LTS and loving it.

    It's not impossible. I know you can have 1 XP project running at Tier up time. Not sure about after. But, if the project was slotted in next. When you hit a new tier, you can run the project without doing the Claim Tier one.

    Three, if you're using the hourlies as well. But that's nitpicking. It's still impossible to get "about 1/2 thru T4" like that.
