Omni in the Event Terran Empire Agony Phaser Weapon Packs?

tom61stotom61sto Member Posts: 3,385 Arc User
For anyone that's bought the Equal and Opposite Event out: Do the Terran Empire Agony Phaser Weapon Packs have the choice of Omni-directional Beam Array and/or Wide Arc Dual Heavy Cannon choice? This is only the second weapon pack in an event, and the Elachi didn't have any [arc] in its original random lockbox weapon packs, but the Agony Phaser boxes do have a small chance of them, so I'm curious if they have Omnis/Wide Arc DHCs in the Event box choices.

Also, what are the specs on the Console – Universal – Destructive Protomatter Wave Projector?

    When I finish the event, in a few weeks, I'll copy the intended character over to Tribble Test Server and give them a trial opening, so I know what to expect on the Live Holodeck...

    @crm14916 I don't think that'd help much, as the biggest issue will be how things bind by that point, and you'd have to have the pack on the character so any bind to character on pickup would be already locked down.

    I've got some IRL stuff coming up and will miss several days, so I'm trying to get a better idea of the pack's value to decide to re-double efforts or just buy it out. I don't really need a 4/4 Warship. While it looks nice, the Prime version does too and I have that. So, it comes down to the weapons (which [arc] would increase the value or those, particularly if they're bind to account on pickup like the Elachi Event weapons were) and console to decide.

    There *is* an agony phaser omni (from the prior Mirror Incursion lockbox) so it is possible that it is included in this pack.

    However, there's already other phaser omnis that you can get that would fill the same slot on your ship (remember the omnis are limited in how many you may equip; you can only use one that's part of a set and one that isn't... if I am correct that this is a non-set omni, it would conflict with the R&D crafted one or any other lockbox-sourced one.)

    non-set:
    R&D crafted omni
    Agony Phaser (mirror incursion / infinity lockboxes)
    eight other lockbox-sourced phaser omnis (I'm not going to bother listing them all here)

    set:
    Trilithium (episode reward, "Beyond the Nexus")
    Advanced Inhibiting (Gamma rep tier 6)

    lockbox-flavoured omnies are non-set ones, but a few of them do have a set-counterpart in the lobi-store on top of the normal ones. Namely the Altamid-plasma and the Ba'ul-antiproton.

    @tom61sto

    My intent to open it first on Tribble was just to not be surprised by any last-second decisions, and had nothing to do with the binding of the items... I figured they'd be bind-to-character, but I've never opened a weapons pack like this before, so I would do it in a "safe environment" like Tribble before discovering something I wasn't ready for on Holodeck...

    That's all I meant...

    I think he was saying that the pack itself may be bind-to-character.

    However, the Elachi pack... I don't remember about the box itself, but the items were bound to account.
