Not sure if this really is the place to post this, but my Ferengi character had the good fortune to acquire a Hirogen Hunter Heavy Escort ship today. For RP reasons, I would like to trade it for a Ferengi D'Kora Marauder, if anyone is willing. Character name in game is Myzer; due to working night shift, I usually play between 10AM -4PM EST. Shoot me a whisper in chat or mail in game if interested.

The D'Kora is much more valuable than any piece of space garbage Hunter. Check the exchange, see the difference in prices, then try again.

Bo, its not ... the D'kora advantages been eroded by other ship releases.

The D'kora is more expensive for a reason, rarity since Cardassian boxes dont drop and that Lock Box is not particular useful to open compared with later boxes.

Exchange prices dont reflect how good or bad something is, the Hirogen Hunter is pretty much the best escort in the game without a cloak.

However its unlikely someone will trade a D'Kora for a Hirogen Hunter since there is a price difference and its far easier to get a Hirogen Hunter because they are entering the system that a D'kora were few if any are.

Maybe the people who were abusing the D'kora 3piece set bonus under the DOFF system are angry that Cryptic stealth nerfed their ability to DOFF hundreds of millions is commodities and thousands of dilithium per day instead of just banning them?

Hunter being the "best" escort? Lol but no, not by a long shot. It's got more hull tank, but less dps and shield. Far less shield than the Elachi escort that nobody seems to like, far less dmg than Kumari, and far less... everything compared to the almighty bug ship. They took a fleet escort carrier and took out the hangar. Don't be a tool just because you're trying to sell a hunter.

There was no abuse because you had to spend hours grinding Latinum and there is only one way to do with, DABO! That should keep some developers happy with their all imporant metrics and I dont think it actually given Dilithium, that was "other abuse".

Plus the "abuse" you speak off was not there to begin with, that was in the Duty Officer system as a whole.

To begin I said without a cloak.

Second, the Hunter can run A2B and DEM, plus your "long shoot" is what? Let me see ... more hull that the Fleet Defiant, more shields that the Fleet Defiant yet same turn rate and less firepower? LOL wut? it have a typical 4/3 thats standard on escorts meaning the only thing that can beat it is having 5 tactical stations that as far escorts go thats only as Fleet (and Fleet Defiant) and funny thing you mention the Elachi escort.

Reason people dont like it seems to be the low hull (science ship low) and Station layout, you are not going to say the Elachi escort is better that the hunter because yes, it have a 1.3 shield mod ... and a Ensign Engineering station, not the Elachi escort is bad as far I can tell but people do have to shield tank a lot, honestly I dont get it since all Elachi escorts I have teamed with seem to work at least as a normal escort does.

I say this, the Hirogen hunter can give the bug a run for its money since it can do one thing the bug cannot, A2B DEM ... sure the Bug wins on turn rate and tactical consoles but rest they are tied.

Warbirds are on Warbirds tier.

*sigh* I was just hoping to get a Ferengi ship for my Ferengi character, not start a fight about mini-maxing.

Well as much you want, its a older ship so prices are up because as I said, fewer numbers in the system ... same with the Galor that became a rarity and even the Temporal Science ship.

My advice is try to get a trade even if its unlikely someone bites, also you can hold onto it and when prices go up try to sell it even if you have to foot part of the bill from you EC reserves.

There's no shortage of old boxes, if that's what you meant. The problem is things other than ships that come out of these boxes are even more worthless than recent boxes, so ppl aren't opening them.
