Will the 10th anniversary legendary bundle return?

    I would prefer to know when bundles come. Sales can remain suprises. I would love to see a calender with the bundles, holidays and phoenix events and similar on it.

    Its not like we wait until its cheaper and just let it sit in the zen store until the sale comes. Its not like the 11th anniversary bundle which is always available unlike the 10th which makes absolutely no sense at all.

    Why make it so mysterious about the temporary things?
    Why even only make it a temporary thing for one but not the other?
    Why not have these things permanently in the store so people can buy them when they want instead of waiting an unknown amount of time?
    Or is this one of the "its better if less people have the bundle so it remains a special thing" things?

    i agree. its almost like if they gave people advanced notice, they would be able to plan and budget and be more willing to spend money. but again, we need to realize that bundles and flash sales that only last 2 days, are aimed solely at whales. and if you're lucky enough these days as a normy, to just have $300 lying around, then woohoo. otherwise, most ppl are SOL​​

    Advanced notice via the forums with the "surprise sales" would definitely be appreciated. If they bring back the Legendary D7, I want to make sure I can pick that up along with a couple of other things that don't seem to appear in the Mudd Store currently, like the Maquis Raider.

    That might be why I didn't notice it then. I will go take a look. I don't want to pay full price for it though. Especially if it comes with a bunch of stuff I don't want and will never use.

    I think the D7 is one of the legendary ships that was offered as a single ship bundled with a token to instantly level one captain to 65 and a bunch of ground and space equipment for said captain.

    It is not in the above-mentioned 10th anniversary bundle, which was all Federation ships.

    Yeah. It's under the Ship bundles. That's the disappointment with it though. I already have a handful of KDF characters and no need to roll another. If I could sell the Level Boost thing, I would have bought it when the bundle came out. I really just want the ship to use on a Romulan with the awesome Romulan skin.

    They might even sell more of the legendary captain bundles if players could sell/trade the 'captain' part of the bundle instead of being stuck with it, whether they want it or not. Or had 'choices' about what add-ons were included with the ship, instead of being locked to whatever Cryptic chooses.

    Options are always good! Elite Captain's tokens would be more useful for me. Again, I would be more than happy if I could sell the KDF to 65 token on the Exchange. With about 15 characters so far, the only way I would create a new one or two, is if we got that Mirror Universe faction. Still hoping!

    The Legendary Bundles are all available and on sale for 35% off, including 10th anniversary. Until the 27th.

    Thanks everyone just bought it finally !!

    I'm kind of disappointed it is only 35%. 50% off and the 20% ZEN charge bonus would have been enough to get me to buy the Legendary D7 bundle, even though I would be getting stuck with a kick to level 65 token I would never use.

    But you still need to buy 10 ship upgrade tokens ? Makes it kinda pricey overall still. Never seen the pack before as I'm a returning player, but after all the hype I kinda expected more !

    You can get the upgrades free-ish via the Phoenix store right now though (or during any Phoenix event).

    The ships come with all the consoles, skins, and traits of their previous versions, plus an extra trait (and the Legendary trait is account-wide) & a new layout.

    Yes, i bought that one at 50% discount.. tho is not terrible expensive, a little more discount would be welcome... i used my token in my Klingon Recruit... it was at level 5 or 6.... but yeah, it would be great if tradeable.

    It’s probably because the bundle predates the 6x upgrades. They seem to just resist the existing bundles. Not rework the contents.

    So are these ship actually any good ? Or am I likely to never use most of them ? I'm really torn over buying this or waiting for other offerings.....

    I own the 10th Anniversary Bundle. I have enjoyed using some of the ships in the bundle. There are some good consoles as well, like on the Columbia, but I wouldn't buy the bundle for those. The TOS Connie and Crossfield were enough to sell me along with the Warship skin for the Legendary Intrepid. It is the one bundle that I would say has some value in it for most people.

    all relative to each person. one will say yes, because of consoles and traits, another says no because, like you, they will never use them. i am also one of the "never use them" crowd. and i am certainly not spending the cash to just get consoles.

    this bundle shall forever be a no go for me since there is one, maybe two ships id enjoy. the rest...meh.

    if you want to see the ships individually in action, there are plenty of YTube vids of each ship i am certain.

    good luck in your choice.

    Only you can really answer that.

    That said... the Defiant is a huge upgrade (being a 5/3 warship rather than a 4/2 or 4/3 escort), the Intrepid and one of the Connies and the Sovereign are MW spec so have the most possible consoles for their type.... and each of the legendary ships comes with all the consoles, traits, and skins for the previous versions of itself plus one account-wide trait and one new skin.

    You'd also have account-wide reclaim access to Advanced Phaser Arrays, and a couple decent carrier pets. (Also the Wide-Angle Quantum Torpedo, the Phaser Quad Cannon, and the Federation Cloaking Device console, though those are also available on previous Zen ships.)

    It will! :)

    have to ask then... @ambassadorkael#6946 will they ever be sold as single buy options?

    At this point I'm going to say the answer is probably no. If it ever DID happen though you'd probably be looking at 6-9k zen per ship to ensure the bundle provides the best value for your money.

    Note: This is based on the Standard Legendary Bundle, not the Premier Bundle.

    Well given the Normal Price for 10 Ships is 30,000 ZEN which is 3,000 each (before sale price) I'd say we'd likely see a 3,500 -3750 Price perhaps. Still I don't think like you'd I'd see them broken up into single ship purchases, as I'd suspect a wiser option be to offer like Gamma Pack did the Starter Option. As it's cost be reduced from the larger bundle later, you'd also not get a choice but just 1 or perhaps 2 ships depending if it were 10th or 11th Legendary bundle.

    Maybe the 10th Starter gives two specific ships depending on price, the 11th might offer but 1, given it has several other addons. Still who knows, allowing some the Starter Pack option might encourage some to try them, and consider the full pack at a later point. :)

    Just my own thoughts however... ...even Kael says might be considered at some point, just not right now.
    It will! :)

    have to ask then... @ambassadorkael#6946 will they ever be sold as single buy options?
    Never say never, but it's not in the current plans.

    Still I think a 10th Starter Legendary Bundle, or 11th Starter Legendary would encourage more to try a few more Legendary Ships! It might also encourage more to consider the larger Legendary Bundles in time, as these are Legendary Ships which the Gamma is not. :)

    you are correct it has the insta-65. one thing about that.. you get all the boffs you would get from leveling and they have access to a LOT of powers not just the three .

    Yes, all ranks of the standard, non-specialization skills, ground and space, come pre-learned on those boffs. They come pre-equipped with VR MKXIV gear as well. The bundle also comes with a selection of VR MKXIV ground and space gear for your captain. But everything is character-bound, so it's only for that captain and no one else.

    Just missed it! NOOOO KHAAAAAAAAAAN! How long will I have to wait now!
  • keepcalmchiveonkeepcalmchiveon Member Posts: 4,133 Arc User
    they should offer a "pick your legendary" ship pack at this point. 1 ship with other stuff, 2 ships with or without stuff, and 3 ships solo.

    and while the CPT bundles have been loaded with goodies for the single cpt, the ships are account unlock.

    And if you have no use for those level tokens, you can't even claim the bank and inventory slots because don't unpack until you use the level token. No services sales either! I would totally be on board with a pick two Legendary Ships with nothing else included for a reasonable price, like $75 tops but $60 would definitely be ideal, for a pick two Legendary Ships pack where they are both account unlocks.

    good points.

    but one could also say one has no need for 8 or 9 of the other ships in the 10th anni bundle.

    i am with you on the two pack bundle without anything else. i was just offering some variety based on current and previous options.
