Legacy of Romulus One Year Anniversary

This is quite good news for me personally since I just started going after Romulan Marks. Hopefully this will drum up more participation.

They should have done this ages ago. Otherwise, the only truly viable means of getting Rommie Marks is to grow eppohs.

Yep, the Romulan ones are brutal outside of the Christmas Eppoh growing.

Would be nice if they changed the overall splash screen when you log in, seeing as how Legacy of Romulus was several seasons ago, though...

Hoping to get some time on the game this weekend. I'm waaaaaaaaaay behind. Been weeks since I'm done anything other than log in and check my messages.

I played a couple of Azure Nebula events, romulan marks rewarded went from 24 to 36. How is that a quadruple? Its not even doubled. *facepalms*

^The quadruple is only on New Romulus missions (the doubling is staying, just being doubled again for this weekend). Other Romulan mark missions only get 50% more, so your numbers are as intended.

Although there is apparently a problem with interacts on New Romulus at the moment...

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

I am thinking about changing my weapons set up for my tac main.

He is using Tetryons, becaue I like the shield drain proc and their blue.

Though the rest of the build is straight damage not drain which I don't have put many skill points into.

I would prefer to boost crit a bit more.

So the best would be AP weapons. But I don't really like their stock effects. The sound effect is really annoying and the visuals could be better.

Are there any variants that appear bluish and have a less headache inducing sound effect?

Well, it would require a purchase, but what about the blue Andorian phasers?

That's a possibility, but I don't see the benefit of phasers over tetryons to justify the cost of a C-store ship purchase plus all the dilithium and fleet credits for the actual weapons. I need 6-7 beams plus new consoles.

Had some Zen built up from my stipend, bought some keys, and opened some Tal Shiar lockboxes.

Got a Helmsman trait out of it, and trying to decide on whether to use it or sell it. They seem to be going for over 30 million ECs right now. But the idea of dropping 10 seconds from the cooldown for evasive maneuvers is appealing for my D'deridex-flying Romulan.

Use should always trump money. If it will improve your gameplay, keep it.

Succinctly put, and just what I'm going to do.

Yup. You didn't lose 30 mil by not selling it, you saved 30 mil by not having to buy it.

Oh, that's pretty sweet! I've lost count of how many times I've died because I didn't fly out of weapons range fast enough
