I know that. The forklift truck only gets me on that one building.
The catwalk then gets me to the sunset side.
However, I have no clue how to get to the opposite edge of the city in order to watch the sunrise from there.
you don't... go to the edge of the building and watch it... the rendering will disappear from most angles and you get a clear view of it.

Yep. Like so:


Also, planking in Hathon!

Seriously? If so, have you put them on ignore and reported them?
Do you need me to show up in game and beat the crap out of them?

Sure.

Unfortunately, I can't remember the person's name. The character's name was Ahsoka spelled wrong, but I forgot to write down the handle.

And never actually said anything to me just put me on follow, and when I changed zones, they'd somehow find me and do it again. After about the third time I confronted them, but got no reply. Eventually I just got mad and logged out.

Try putting them on ignore, then changing instances. That seems to work in other games. You can also change your privacy settings so that only friends can see you.

If you see me online while they're stalking you, give me a shout. If nothing else, I'll blast them with tribbles.

An in-game stalker? I've never heard of anyone doing that before. Let us know if it happens when we're online. I can understand how frustrating that must have been.

I must say I had a rather good weekend, stf loot wise. Picked up my first piece of mk XI Maco ground gear (for 40 edc's), got the mk XII Maco space shields and deflector, and a Mk XI Maco ship shield (before I got the mk XII). Now I have to grind the Cure space elite stf to complete the set with Mk XII Maco impulse engine.

I've been looking over the F2P matrix trying to work out if it's better to keep subscribing or just go free. What's stopping me really is the veteran rewards (particularly the loss of the Veteran ship token, although both toons that would need it so have an unused Bortas each).

The inventory and bank slots are an issue too (it would cost several monthly's subs to replace them on all my toons), but the respec isn't really an issue as I don't use them that much.

Yeah, most of my chars have the Odyssey or Bortas, but not everyone is an Engineer.

Does anyone know if you actually lose bank/inventory slots? Based on what I've read on the F2P FAQ, it doesn't look like they would be taken away. I'd like to talk with someone that has converted from active subscriber to f2p to see how it affected them.

.
I've come back since its gone F2P and I've still got all my inventory/bank slots from before.

I haven't noticed any big differences since I've come back other then not getting a VA ship token. Only time I've been in a queue was on Saturday after the new FE came out.

You got 2 Prototype techs already?
Did you bribe Gozer or something?

If so how much should you bribe him for.

5,000,000 energy credits and some blood wine. I guess it was just luck. I only ran about 7 STF's over the past 4 days, and I picked up 2 prototype and 1 rare tech (along with some rare salvage that got me MkXII ship weapons). They weren't kidding when the devs said they increased the drop rate for STF loot. I hope my luck holds out and I can get the engine prototype tech from the Cure without having to repeat it too much. Perhaps a few fleet runs are in order?

For the most part, I was in STF's with some PUGs, so it became a bit of a grind - but the rewards were worth it. After getting the second MACO XII component, I ran Infected space normal to test it out and we had it finished in under 15 minutes. It was the quickest I have ever done that STF with a random group of people.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

There is one thing about STF looting that I have come to be annoyed about and that is the Need or Greed system which means I can see an EDC or Rare or Prototype drop, but I can't get the drop unless I have the better roll.

I've never seen a prototype drop in the need/greed loot - only EDC's and other tech (and lock boxes... so many lock boxes). The prototypes I received were all in the individual loot drops at the end of the mission.

Well I haven't seen a protoype in the need/greed loot, I was in a pug that managed to get the optional on Cure normal and in the loot thing was a rare tech, WHCIH I DIDN'T GET

If you're planning to bribe Gozer, he likes hand-made gifts a lot. Especially if they involve Klingons in some manner.

One of these days you must pm me your actual connection to Cryptic. I will keep it completely confidential of course and only exploit it for completely selfish reaso.. I mean, no way would I exploit that.
