I understand that everyone hates these lockboxes but i just wanted to share on how to unlock the ship since i got it twice one for my mine character and another for my alt character so any way this is how i got mine

my mine character
I first started of with by buying about 5000 zen which cost me about 37 ponds and then another for 2000 zen and then brought some 10 pack lockbox keys and by opening the boxes with the keys i got the wells-class ship

my alt character
it only took about 5000 zen with about 40 lockbox keys to get the ship in my alt character

I'm not sure if this will work for everyone but just wanted tell you unless you had a different way of getting it?

I did the same thing. Spent $50 and got 5300 z. Plus my 500 stipend, I bought 48 keys. 4 10 packs and 8 individual keys.

Got nothing but $50 USD of junk....

Being born Irish doesn't give you an edge with the boxes.

I used just a 10 pack of keys and got 2 Mirror Assaults, a Mirror Deep Space Science, and a Mirror Recon. Plus various other junk.

Yeah, I went through probably a good 60 boxes trying to get a Dkora or a Wells to trade for a Dkora, so trust me, randomness is a mofo at times, in fact, most times.

I've gotten two Wells class ships so far, which is pretty odd for someone as unlucky as I usually am.

First one I got for psuedo-free. I traded in an old iPhone I still had at Gamestop and used the trade value to buy PWE zen cards. bought 50 keys and converted the rest to dilithium for the fleet starbase. Wells class was key #23.

Earlier this week I bought 28 keys with EC. Wells class was inside the last of the 28 lockboxes I opened.

Sold the first wells class last month. Sitting on the second one, hoping the prices go up or that someone will want to trade for a jem hadar ship when they come back out for the Winter Event.

Not considering using it? It's a fantastic ship!

I copied my character over to tribble after I got the first one and tried it out. Not really my cup of tea. I am a pretty big escort ship fan.

Thats why I want one of the jem hadar ships. I'm hoping either the price drops on them pretty sharply when they are re-introduced, or I would gladly trade someone my wells class. I also have a ferengi shuttle I can throw in to sweeten the deal.

This is the element of your "how to get" guide I have a problem with.

You realize that this is more expensive than ANY other ship in the game, and it is a one time thing... If you discard it, it's gone... and you only get it for one char.
My name may say "PWE member", but I will never be.

Well you lucky punks, my experience was not so kind. I bought $100 worth of zen with the bonus 600 and an additional 15% bonus which just barley got me 101 keys. I received no Wells class and barley received 600 lobi to get the 3 piece set for the destroyer that I had to buy from someone in my fleet. So basically this one experience has soured me on the whole lock-box lobi system in this game and will never open anymore boxes again without a guarantee that the drop percentage will work properly.

It is the same problem with the STF proto drops which I am glad there fixing in season 7. Now if they did the same for the lock boxes I would not mind anymore about opening them, however right now it is a fraud/scam for the players in my percentile.

<And why the hell can't I change my title on these bloody forums anymore, stupid dummed down PW forums.
