From an RP standpoint, my character is a Doctor that cheated her way through Starfleet Medical. So until Cryptic revamped the Skill Tree a few months ago, she had zero points in Medical skills. She was a craptastic Doctor but when people would randomly read her Bio when I was out-n-about and comment on it, I could tell them that. She was good for a laugh.
So that was where your Dilithium came from, huh? Ah, you were gone for a long time, then. Sadly, that means that you will not like the Crafting anymore. It now costs tons of Dilithium for each item in addition to gathering resources. It is expensive. Doubly so when you consider that Dilithium has a real-life money value attached to it. It is prohibitively expensive. I used to do a lot of Crafting myself. When people would ask after certain equipment on the forums or on the in-game chat, I used to offer to craft a piece for them free-of-charge. I can't do that anymore. I can't even Craft for MYSELF these days. It bites.
And Photonic Fleet. Can't overlook that one. Actually, I think that it unlocks during the same Rank as the Engineer's Miracle Worker. Summoning all of those ships at once can be a life saver.
That is the way to go. Some people prefer custom Races or Races with specific Traits. In my opinion, I think that it should be about what you like rather a few extra points here and there. If you decide to start a Science-type, pick it up as a Vulcan.
Does anybody know if they ever fixed the Vulcan the abilities? I remember back in the day if you used the Mind Meld (and maybe the Nerve Pinch as well) it would cause the game to crash.
My Engineer is the Liberated Borg, too.
In my little mind's RP, she is a Choctaw Indian Borg. She is a racist one at that. She dislikes Organics. So, I have been trying to fill her crew with Synthetics and Cyborgs only. I have a couple of other Borg in there, a Photonic, and an Android. Sadly, there is just not enough non-Organic Races to fill up her entire Bridge Crew. Its a work in progress.
Ouch, so crafting is a bit of a pain now? That sucks, I usually enjoy crafting in games as it gives me something else to do instead of just leveling through quests/missions and doing dungeons, plus I get a warm fuzzy feeling when I help out another player by making them some gear for free. Well at least I know now to save the Dilithium for crafting, thank you for explaining the changes to crafting.
I can't remember if I have or still have a bio for my Engineer. In Champions Online I would always try to write some type of bio that makes sense for my character, I am not into rping but I do roleplay my character in my head (if that makes any sense, lol).
However I do enjoy reading what other people write, some can make some really cool backgrounds for their characters. However I have read some really... "interesting" bio's, makes me wonder what the person is really like behind that character, lol.
Thank you again for coming by posting again, any input is greatly appreciated.
