Given up on the Vault
 
OK so I'm a relative newcomer to MMO games (this is my first) and my flight skills need a lot more practice but I just cannot get past the last ship when I'm trying to get out of the vault. I've been trying for three days now!

Is it actually possible with a type 8 shuttlecraft?

I've not attempted it in a Type 8 shuttle yet, but using the Danube-class runabout as both a tac and a sci and found it relatively easy. Remember to stock your shuttle with good equipment before you set off (you can borrow some from your regular ship) and make use of your captain's space abilties (although as a new player you may not have many). The Type 8 has no Bridge Officer slots (the Danube has 1) so you'll have to rely on your captain's abilties. You also have one device slot, use it to hold shield or weapons batteries and use those as required.

The trick with Romulan ships is to beware of the high yield plasma torpedo. If you can keep some distance, you can switch targets and shoot it down before it reaches you. That should help.

Hope this helps. If all else fails you can ask someone to team with you and do the mission together.

I used a Type 8 Shuttle and simply hugged the wall to slip out behind it. Evasive maneuvers can't hurt either. Why take on an escort in a shuttle if you don't have to:D?

Lure him away from the door, break LOS once he is far enough away and make a break for the exit.
Force it not needed.

Thanks guys, some ideas there I hadn't thought of. I upgraded some of the shuttle equipment from stuff I had going spare but I didn't think to borrow from my science ship itseld. I'll move across some batteries as suggested as well.

another tip, when you have lured him from the door blown the lock an gone through, ignore the mini fighters, the will chase an blow themselves up in the fields you fly through so aslong as u have cleared all the tractor beams an torps on the way in on the way out should be easy,

I was curious if I could kill the Mogai in my Delta Flyer.....on my own.:o (lets face it,even on normal a long shot) Three times in a row I got its health down to 20-25%.....and then he goes all mental in overdrive and one shots me.:eek: (Engineer in a Delta Flyer with 2 shuttle beam arrays)

If you're on your own,don't even try fighting the escort.(I will get him one day though!:D)

No need to fight either of the bigger ships. Just sneak yourself in that little shuttle off to the far left side, blow the lock, evasive through the open gate.

Last one - aggro with a shot, fly UP and around. As Roach pointed out - no need to slug it out, lure them away, break LOS, and be about your merry way.

I did tangle with the little fighters - that was just fun. :D
