    Swords tend to be a lot easier to handle in STO than Bat'leths, as they have a gap closer. Not only that, that new sword has a chain ability to pull them to you.

    Also... certain enemy groups are better to use swords against, like the Borg. My fleet used to do entire Sword Runs of Cure ground, and had a blast just running around like a bunch of crazy people slashing drones.

    Fun fact: The Borg appear to adapt to the fire damage part of the sword. Physical is fine, but they adapt to the fire component.

    wtf? serious?
    meh

    Yes. Pretty much all event rewards (from single events) are.

    Borg also adapt to the poison from turds/targs/torgs/somethinglikethat batleth which is a mission reward.

    For the gun users when attacking shielded borg, that should cause the attacked borg to summon reinforcements behind the attacker too. (A counter they added a while ago for the Thompson, triggered by kinetic physical damage without shield damage, or something to that effect.)

    Edit: Hit submit too quick. The flaming sword I think I'll use on my Orion, she's been carrying around a Bat'leth too long. I think I liked the swords better then Bat'leth when I have used the sword in the old Breen mission arc. My KDF recruit will keep using her special Bat'leth.

    The funny part is the sword seems to be part of the grand prize package, so it'll take most of the year to earn, can can be binned for later retrieval.

    The sword is a reward for 14 days of progress in the current Voth event, so you can have it within the next couple of weeks.

    The 5-event campaign is different. You get progress toward that in this event, but it has its own set of rewards to choose.

    Heh, ya I noticed that last night while starting the event. The event description on the site must've been written by a lawyer or someone who learned mastery of the language from twitter instead of a university.

    They adapt to everything that isn't physical/kinetic. Because reasons, though, to be honest, given the nature of Borg drones, poison shouldn't affect them at all.

    This is only partly true.

    Borg don't adapt to the fire from exothermic induction field. Or at least, I have never seen them do that and I use that power all the time on my Sci's.

    You are correct. Not sure about the fire from other Fire-based damage sources though.

    Cryptic nerfed Borg adaptation a while back, making it so that they don't adapt to damage from NPCs or kit abilities.

    Interesting. Well either way, even pre-nerf they would never adapt to Exo Field, but would to my Hyperionic Radiation and Cold Fusion Flash.

    Personally, I remember a time when melee-weapons were an incredibly valid choice for secondary weapons on elite-Omega-STF's, to earn the MACO/HG/Omega-gear and get the optionals for accolades and costume-unlocks.

    For weapons without a built-in gap-closer, there are options like lunge.

    Yeah, STO's melee-mechanic is very clunky and somewhat half-baked, but it works, and always did.

    The Personalized Spatial Trajector kit module teleports you to your foe and is not class specific, anyone can use it.
    This kit module is a lot of fun to use.

    I'm trying in place of lunge on my 2255 recruit and tied it to the same thumb button on my mouse.

    On an map with the targets spread out having multiple charges to move around is simply a blast.

    Blip blip slice. The three 10 meter teleport jumps available covers pretty well everything and they're always recharging in the background.

    Yep, love to ‘blip’ around the map and slice people up.. a ton of fun. I even ran it on some Elite Ground maps in fleet runs, it was a lot of fun.. but overall I will probably use Ranged on my recruit going forward for Fleet Elite Runs just because it can be hard to reach targets before the rest of the party vaporizes them. In story mode content though, my melee Klingon with Nanopulse Mek’leth’s is probably my most powerful character. Even on Elite, she just slices things to bits.. it’s a lot of fun. :smile:

    I have my Klingon recruit completely themed around fire damage and fek'lhr ships. This sword will be glorious! (Although it looks a bit weird)

    When they add the Fek'lhr themed kit modules back to the event store from the last winter event it'll add even more thematic (and very effective) options to all this mysterious robed stranger from 2255 stuff :smile:

    The engineering kit module with the chain attack and drag into a pool of fire is really quite impressive.

    It's a WoW-ish "paddle" rather than a sword.

    But yeah, glorious anyway.

    No one are going to use that.

    You sir, are wrong. I will use it. Speak for YOURSELF next time, not me.
