Aren't only the Advanced Phasers/Disruptors the only weapons that come with these ships, unless a special torp or something that can be upgraded? Usually the weapons, even if "themed" that come with a ship cannot be upgraded. I wish they'd change that or have them unlocked perhaps in the dilithium store, but usually these ships' weapons scale up to Mk X or XII but cannot be upgraded pass that.

    You are supossed to be able to get level XV equipment.. so my question is if that level equipment includes the integrity linked weapons, or just the regular phaser weapons.. if they do have integrity ones.. then yeah, thats a lot.. they are incredible expensive, as you may know.. if they are the regular.. that's quite a missed opportunity, as this bundle is for DSC chars.. so it should be theme appropiate..

    Oh I understand you now, part of that FULL SUITE of VR Mk XIV Ground & Space gear. It does say "many different options for outfitting your ship," so if/when you buy it I hope you get what you want. I'd probably wait myself & ask in-game about it from someone that bought it first myself knowing my Cryptic luck. I still think Cryptic should handle such things similar to what they did with that Qulash ship awhile back, that was great imo.

    They should give us an option to just instant-level a character.

    It makes no sense to bind it to a specific ship some players may not be interested in.

    Just let players buy the things they actually want, instead of a bundle from which they may never use like half the contents.

    Yea the reason is called work! In his position tending to forums means doing work, streaming only means talking about work.

    I guess he has his preference there. ;)

    He might be employed part-time, which is my guess, since even adding up his work on Champions Online too the numbers do not addup for a normal 7-8h per day job. Personally he doesnt strike me as a bad or too lazy person(clumsy? yes definitely) and since I dont details of his agreed workhours I do not want to go as far as saying he does so on purpose.

    Yeah, always liked the walker, it's one of the few ships i dont have.. but didnt wanted to have the lobi one.. i was on the fence... now that is account unlock, i'll get it.. as i had 1000z from my stipend, and got 1000z from dilithium, the pack will cost me 4000z this time, so i decided to give it a go, also i love the 2411 skin. :smiley:

    12k zen for a single ship, some fluff & stuff and a rather pointless boost to 65 given how fast you can max out a character in STO. Doesn't seem to cover reps which is where the bulk of the time is actually required, not surprising though since you can now buy your way through the reps.

    Year of the ferengi is more appropriate given the push of the "honest guv its not a t7" level of ships for exorbitant prices in a year where a lot of people will have been more than likely counting their pennies having lost a job or been put on reduced hours.

    My thoughts are that I don't care and that it's overpriced for what it is. However, I don't have a problem with it. Apparently, the Romulan pack was a success or they wouldn't bother making another one.

    Fail. Purchased it - can claim the ship, but it sure as heck didn't put a 'bundle' in my inventory.

    Hmm, you mean the boffs went to your boff reserve interface for example?

    No, I mean there is no bundle to open. It didn't put ANYTHING into my inventory to open.

    so, what the difference between Jem’Hadar and Legendary Discovery Captain Bundle except 5levels for 12k zen?

    Lorca doesn't have Space Warfare Specialist trait. Not only are they bound to one character and can't be reclaimed they have none of the traits that made them valuable.

    I figure, after the fact, that is why Cryptic didn't advertise the 6 Holo BOFFs' traits beforehand.

    Players were going to recognize some of the "convention" BOFFs' traits had been reduced to mediocre.

    Cryptic knew what they were doing with these 6 Holo BOFFs no doubt about it.

    This pack looks even less appealing now.

    Indeed. They also adjusted the price of the Targ from 400 Zen to 800 Zen when the sale is over. That and the invalid skill and downtime have killed any goodwill they had. I am staying away from it. I already have T6 lobi walker and it's superior to their account walker in everyway. They can keep their overpriced 12,000 Zen bundle with filler bound garbage.​​

    I saw that store combat-peet pricing when I finally logged-in to STO today.

    Has Cryptic gave any justification for the double the price of this combat-pet besides it is new & has prettier pixels?

    I'm sure a few at Cryptic might've been thinking well it is a Targ so it is Klingon so we should price it higher lol.

    The 3 or 4 other combat-pets are all normally priced at 400 zen. So typical of Cryptic as of late.

    Yes seems they turned most bundles to work like that, can be a bit confusing to us used in a different way

    Far too overpriced for what you get. If it had been 6k Zen normally and say 4500k zen on sale I'd scoop it up but I'm tired of giving good money for less value to Cryptic.

    Nevermind...
    Have to claim it in the Top Selling tab of the Items tab...
    That scared me to death...
    Why though?
    It's purchased, just put it in my inventory.
    Instead I had to go frantically rummaging through the rest of the store.

    I think the idea was to buy it with any char, but just claim the bundle in the one you really want.. god knows how many times i claimed something, just to discover that it was character bound and on the wrong char.. :neutral:

    Ug, that is severely unfortunate if on wrong character. I understand Cryptic wanting to make it available to buy from any character for availability, & I think that's a good thing, but with some of these packs with 1-character-only content one has to be extra careful when opening.
