maybe, but it could spike higher than usual and might not go down as far as usual, cause they will open up a whole new c-store essentially with all new Romulan stuff people will want to buy.
I was on for about an hour this morning. The price of Dil went from 106 to 115. I expect it's only going to climb higher. If you want to convert your dil to zen, this is probably the time.
Its already dropped back to 109.
That's because of the Zen sale...

Well the Crystalline Entity event has given me a new use for the quantum shield thingy on the Vesta, now I can survive a point blank hit from the Entity's shockwave attack as long as the power is available.

I just got me a Borg cutting beam (I know, late to the party), the only gear so far I picked up from the reputation store. Any other store unlocks worth the investment?

Well the Borg plasma torp gives you a mini V'ger torpedo thing.

And the Romulan hyper plasma torpedo fires volleys that if you skilled right can be heavy plasma torpedoes.

Oh I also checked out the new character selection screen on tribble, now the BO slotted for your way team will show up behind your character and your ship should be visible above them.

Depressing answer is: no, not really. Spend a couple months grinding away, drop millions of credits and other resources, and then not really much there. really just doing it for the skills/powers, IMO. I unlocked both on my primary a while ago, and other than getting the Adapted MACO set and some different costume tweaks, not really much there to buy. Haven't even played him in a while, as he's maxed out with nothing to do, and no incentive to do anything...

Well you do get a decent amount of dilithium from the Romulan rep and you can unlock the Reman race for the upcoming Romulan faction no matter which faction a character that completes it is in.

Not from the rep store, but advanced fleet weapons do give a noticeable boost to starship damage.

Last time I checked there were no advanced Transphasic torpedos and it will take good ones to seperate me from the Breen Rapid Fire torps.

Might (might) be running around in STO late tonight (after midnight EST) if I don't grind on my Guild Wars I account. Really I shouldn't, I'm behind on some stuff I should get done this weekened, but at the same time I need to decompress a little for the next couple of days.

Romulan Hyper Plasma Torpedos.

I'm Seriously thinking about maxing out the Romulan rep on my soon to be Romulan alt just to get all the good toys.

Why can't the feds and Klinks get faction specific goodies like that.

Also it took them long enough, but Cryptic seems to have finally figured out what you need to do to get money out of your player base with a minimum of fuss

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

I run the transphasics because they still pass as photons with their orange glowing color and thus are acceptable as Federation weaponry for me.
I max my toon within a themed frame, but the theme takes precedence.

Quantums might be interesting, they produce higher damage on blank hull, not sure if they compete against shielded targets, though.


I would enjoy classic reds with some interesting perks.

But in this game it's all about making your toon as unfaction like as possible.

Humm... Yeah... I have no desire to play as a nosferatu bat with reflective purple pajamas that was never mentioned in Trek before and was a one note wonder in a single movie.

I know I know, a bit harsh and I don't begrudge anyone who will want to... but not for me.

Give me a sneaky, xenophobic, treacherous Romulan. The guys who gave Kirk a run for him money now and again and made the crew of the Enterprise D shutter by telling them, "We are back!"

Its a C-Store bundle for completionists who buy everything anyway.
They just sell it for real cash in advance.
You can buy everything in there individually after the expansion is released.
Except the titles.
