# 1 Given up on the Vault
02-22-2011, 09:39 AM
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?

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 got around the Romulan ship and destroyed the locks but the gate would not open and I am having to do the mission again.

Actually you can escape pretty easy, IF you think smart. I lurred the ship around the big pillar in the middle, engaged full throttle and was at the door right before it could get me into a fight, so I could easily activate the door.

yea I've done the vault a few times now, and every time I evade the first escort. I'm using a delta flyer with Aegis gear. Last time he got hung up on a pillar and I thought the electric current would weaken him, plus my phasers and I would finally have him. No luck on that one. I can kill the second one though for some reason everytime.
