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

It really depends on how much of an altoholic you are. With just a couple of of characters you sub a month and powerlevel your characters to 50 to get them the most practical benefits. It's important to be subbed when the character rises up in rank to get all promotion perks.

Alternatively you can try to find an old retail copy on a dustlayered shelf somewhere.
That gives you 30 days Gold for free, some exclusive Bonus items and an easy reinstall if you need One.

I had considered getting the Lifetime, but didn't realize it ever went on sale.

How often do they do that?

once or twice a year at most. usually at slow times to drag people back in the game shortly before another major update...

Good chance they might have one within the next couple of months.

No promises, though.

Oh, and a reminder to all, upcoming friday is a Friday, 13th.

That means their special horror minisode will be available again to claim a special doff and accolade.

So, this doff just joined my crew. What a boob. Likes to keep abreast of things though.

Yep, "Hearts and Minds" I wanna say is the name of it? You get a purple doff out of it, and a lirpa that's really not overly useful. Not a bad little episode, would be nice if they worked in more things like that on occasion, rather than doing the GIANT Upgrade or Dead Air approach...

Well, the lirpa is pretty cool for telepathic characters I think. It has a psi buff.

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

Kinda the inherent flaw in most of the weapons you get at endgame, though. By the time you get them, you don't need them anymore. Lirpa would be useful for telepathic characters, but aside from a couple quick battles with Remans in the Romulan arc, do you ever actually run across any? Enough to justify even placing it on a character vice burying it in the bank?

Like the STF weapons. They're pretty good, and set-wise, probably the best. By the time you earn them, though, you had to grind STFs for a long time, and you're doing just fine. Now you earn the weapons, and at the same time, don't need to grind STFs anymore...

Isn't this the very first friday the 13th since Legacy of Romulus launched? So pretty much all romulan characters would need to do Hearts and Minds

The doff is really quite good for its type. That alone is good reason to do the mission. Which I am reminded I need to do.

That mission was the fastest one ever.

Creepy, but not overly horrific. Somehow I expected Borg to be involved.

yeah, really felt like it needed more immersion. It's really quick, so any way to get a doff easy...
