  • > @szim said: > I don't know... comparing this to the legendary ship pack - 10 starships, a load of consoles, traits and ship costumes, 10 ship slots - all that for a discounted price of 19'500 Zen. And now Mudd is "spoiling" us with 3 ships for 14'750 Zen? I think that offer is rather terrible in comparison. Unless the…
  • > @reyan01 said: > Whilst this isn't a purchase I will make, the option of an Epic Phoenix token in this pack surprises me. I know they're as rare as rocking horse excrement but I really don't think they're valuable enough to warrant being included in a pack like this. Partly beause it would only have value as a method of…

  • Pro and cons of taking your chance with the exchange. They are so expensive that people may not feel they are valuable enough to buy. The stats aren't so great in comparison to other ships in their promo caliber. The bundle description is so ambiguous that it may put people off buying to begin with. This may result in…
  • This is ofcourse an awful shame. Not even the polarise hull doffs work properly, giving less feedback than their descriptions suggest. You're absolutely right - they've gone full reverse on this power and i'm surprised they didn't just delete the whole thing instead. I run an agro-tank federation engineer and, with 1350%…
  • Edit: but i guess that's the point. If you want this shirt bad enough, some fool will pay for it.
  • Am not paying contemporary prices for outdated ships. To quote Captain Spock, "If I were human, I believe my response would be: 'Go To Hell'...". That's right Mudd, your market is just an overpriced outdated junk shop.
  • I'm going to be cheeky now, and say that 'meta' simply depends on your preference of weapon type and then making the best of it, even if that is not the highest dps possible because the ultimate build, or meta, is the one you will enjoy most.
  • > @westmetals said: > Here's my setup... it does use some fleet gear (so there's that, compared to the original poster), but only for five consoles, and one of those could be replaced with the Temporally Shielded Datacore... and the secdef, three BOFFs, and a captain trait. > > I left out the quality/mark of all the items…
  • > @trillbuffet said: > The amusement of a ship that uses a battle cloak also using aux2bat which a perfect example of the irony it represents is aux power is like the fuel your car needs to go vroom vroom. Just like aux power determines stealth ratings so essentially you are selling your car to buy gas for it. Because aux…
  • Its 15% cat 1 phaser damage, 1.5% extra crit chance, and the anomaly is phaser damage, debuffs enemy hull by -25, chases the closest enemy, affects all enemies within 3km of it and lasts 40 seconds (33% uptime Minimal potential). By the way, I want aux to bat on my own romulan ship build to make up for the innately reduced…
  • What was I thinking, you're right about the temporal disentanglement suite - its rare i would ever use a dual A2bat setup myself so it was bereft of the natural thought process. I'd just stop using dual A2B and stick a photonic officer on but thats just me. Regarding the lorca console and 2 piece: the extra crit chance,…
  • I think that one of the ways in which to create a budget build is to utilise some of the items that are more current, like the Lorca set which for many, is the go-to 2 piece for extra phaser damage - available to everyone with the same accessibility as the other reputation items you've included. I couldn't help notice the…
  • > @keepcalmchiveon said: > curious if anyone mixes and matches hanger pets or if you keep them the same... > > what works, doesnt work, etc. I like the delta flyers hangar pets and pilot skil reinforcement squadrons on my legendary intrepid. It's like having two hangar bays, except the reinforcement squadrons benefit from…
  • Hey so I understand you like the excelsior, there aren't many who dont. It's such a smart, iconic and workable ship. Using torpedoes are fun and I'm guessing you might enjoy a wide angle 180DEG PHOTON torpedo. You can get this from the Phoenix box under the dilithium store which I'm sure you can trade some of that…
  • There seems to be, for some reason, a break down in communication here. I took baseline measurements and added in the best of what STO has to offer and came to the conclusion that a full energy build is better than utilising this 3 piece and I added in supporting evidence. Aside from that, its just been me being attacked…
  • Question. You know since you're using a double auz to bat setup, would you equip cold hearted since this was free with a ship ? It's more expensive now, but those who did the winter event would get this free and would therefore for this into their budget for free,same with the lorca set. I noticed you've got other…
  • > @westmetals said: > (Quote) > > PLEASE stop with the condescension. I have been doing builds for years and so on. > > I'm not speaking broadly and hypothetically about ALL torpedoes, far from it. I agree that with pretty much any other torpedo you would be correct. I'm speaking specifically about the original poster's…
  • If you carry on going down the road of 'I can't answer that' then you will forever be going around in circles, hoping for as many torpedo buffs as there are energy weapon buffs and comparing low dps torpedoes with higher dps energy weapons at baseline. From what you ask? from the haste powers I mentioned earlier that take…
  • Well of course you'd need to field test> @westmetals said: > (Quote) > > True, but that's assuming an all-else-being-equal one for one swapout. > > The thing is, all else is not equal, because the torpedo doesn't use weapon subsystem power to fire, so potentially the other weapons on the ship with the torpedo are actually…
  • You are right to take category 1 damage into account. But let me just provide a mathematical backing for my pointer. Any standard mk XV weapon comes with an innate +284% of cat 1 damage. Add in say 4 tac consoles and thats another (39.4x4) 157% cat 1 damage added bringing the total to 441% cat 1 damage. Now, if you add the…
  • This is a very simple concept. Don't use the torpedo. The extra raw dps of an extra energy weapon far outweighs that of a torpedo plus set bonus. This before you add traits and consoles into the mix. All-Energy builds are superior no matter where your bottom line is.
  • they are? - i suppose that RnD condolence prizes and lobi crystals stacking up is a bonus but since everything is available cash in hand on the exchange, it defeats the point of these boxes. Not to mention the free 1000 lobis round the corner which further defeats the purpose of these hideous boxes. This makes accessing…
  • The only point to this set is to benefit from slightly more dps during a fight lasting longer than you want. But really, the torpedo 3 piece weapon travels so slowly that it never hits, and when it does, most of the time it misses. The wide angle photon itself is no match for a more powerful torpedo that can be…
  • True, but that defeats the object of gamble boxes and thats precisely the point mentioned here - they're a tired old cash cow idea and heavily unfavourable.
  • There is no guarantee that I can get this for any reasonable value for money as it's not a c store ship. No thanks
  • doesn't it just! Submarine imposter whale
  • 1 looks by far the most impressive - a visible frontal deflector, nicec windows - though i'm sure thats because more time went into this design. 2 looks incredibly sleek, not sure what the dome is about but the extended warp nacelles make it little less risian if anything 3 great job, it communicates speed, the angular…
  • same ship different label - what next cryptic? I haven't been excited to play in months This ship is not special in anyway that isn't already available which makes it worthless to me and a lot of others, but not to those who cant see it for what it is - a waste of a label.
