And it serves as a good panic heal. the more enemies are in range the better the heal up to 100%.

Its not overpowered. I believe devs treat the cane like a special console ability, one that's meant to be stronger than typical but has a much longer reuse time.

I'm not saying it's "over" powered but it's my secret weapon when I can't advance on a ground mission.

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

watch this vid, and tell me if you find something strange about it.

We are playing ISE Conduit, and one of our fleet members does something strange, something that surprises us all, he takes down ninite collector with cube and ninite generators still intact. I didn't ask him how he does it, was too preoccupied with my mission part, getting killed, few times. (does not happen often, but with new borg enhancements creeps have added to the borg in season 7, maco shields stand no chance, something i find ridiculous, and reason why many players have left the game as of late, season 7 is a major screw up, our fleet that numbers 480-500 active players before season 7 started lost half of extremely good players, we did recover our number but only cause many smaller fleets have completely died and many players from these fleets are looking for good fleets to move in to, our fleet being one of the top 10 fleets in this game - level 15 fleet) anyways watch this vid and let me know what you think he has done so i might do the same next time, btw he dies often after, so there's something about him playing suicidal card to get the job done. anyways any ideas?

Mic - I tried to look but my connection to Youtube is slow at the moment. I probably wouldn't know what I was looking for anyway. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hmmm... I think some players don't understand the race. I've come in 4th and got the 1st place flag and come in 5th for the 2nd place flag. Are they running the race without "joining"?

I really like the Flurry. It's a little squishy but much better for taking down those pesky snowmen than using a regular snowball. Too bad we can't use those against other players. :-)

Either that or they are not grabbing the flags

Its most likely a bug. I've mostly seen it in the form of being able to destroy the gateway without having to destroy the left or right nodes. Its intermittent and rare so I can't really tell what causes the bug, but I've seen it happen more than a few times.

Well I'm sure everyone who wasn't happy about the officer reports daily change will be happy they dropped it down to one mission and while they dropped the dilithium amount to 960 the also dropped the cool down to 30 mins so you can end up with more dilithium from it now if you don't mind the wait.

Does it start the cd from the time you turn in the mission, or the time you start the mission? Because if it's the latter, you could do Foundry missions one after another, getting dil each time.

Much better than spending a bare minimum of 45 minutes to get that amount of dil in either case (which went against the dev's ideal of 8000 dil in 4 hours - you should get at least 50% more for the old way). And you still get the fleet marks every time.

Maybe fleets can get more back on their feet. It's still not the clickies, but still good.

Most cooldowns are tied to the start of a mission. So if you don't have time to run it, go ahead and start it. Then next time you log in (with more time), you can run the mission then immediately run it again.


Change of subject

Is it necessary to grow those alien dogs? I think it's kind of cute as a pup, but I saw someone with a large one and it was downright ugly.

Tip - If you know that you should have one of the missions available to research or grow one but don't see it when you click on the Researcher, check your Personal available assignments.

I still see folks running around shooting player characters with their Flurry's and Avalanches. How are they doing that? It won't let me target another player character.

If you're into Accolades, don't forget that you can earn 4 or so in the Winter Wonderland.

Not sure, but a suggestion: Use shooter mode?

It's not necessary to grow the Epohhs, but you can turn them in for Romulan Marks if you don't want to keep them.
I think of them less as dogs and more like alien bunny pigs. They are obviously related to Targs.

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

Greetings!

I am new to the board and relatively new to Star Trek Online (joined shortly after it became free). I really love playing STO and have gone through all the episodic missions and a bunch of the fan-made ones.

I am a bit confused though by the 'season' updates, most recently Season 7. What is new about these updates? I do not see any new episodic missions despite the New Romulus mention. Obviously, I must be missing something so I thought I'd ask. I'm running out of things to do and am hungry for different/new content. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thank you!

Lotsurb,

I think most of the Romulan material is for higher ranking characters and perhaps just for Vice Admirals / Lt Generals. Don't know if that explains why you're not seeing them.

I've only done two missions myself, one was releasing captured Romulan ships and another was disrupting the Tholians from building a web around the Vault. I found my engineer to be best equiped for handling the Tholians.

Epohhs

I normally don't bother with pets, but I think the little pups are funny. I didn't know if they would expire if not grown to full size by the end of the Winter Wonderland.

I had one candy striped pup follow me around during the snowman attack. Funny as hell because I'm constantly moving during the fight.

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

Thanks Rocketeer,

My rank is Admiral (lower half, I believe). If I need a higher one, I'll keep playing until I reach the right rank. The new missions should show up in the list of the game, right? In the section that lists out "Klingon Advance", "Romulan <something>", etc?

Thanks again.
