the MK XI [cov]x3 version is about 1.5 mil, so i COULD afford it, but would rather not waste my money on such a small boost (I have MK XI [cov]x2), especially when there is supposed to be something just as good as a mission reward.
MK XII [cov]x3 are over 4 mil, so that is out of the question
I'd get the Paratrinic shield just for the lolz of having a "Mk X!" item. Yes really. It's not labeled MK XI it's Mk X!.
Trying to find the Paratrinic Shield Array for a budget build ship when i realized it was not in any of the mission rewards? is it missing or am i just blind?
I see allot of the responces are not getting what your asking. while they are correct it still was not the answer. yes on playthroughs they took it out for some reason. just like the shiled cap scince console on replays and the Harpeng torp doff mission. never a mention or release note as to why that I have seen they are just gone.
and for the torp its really pain. only way for a Klingon to get it now is to craft one but then its bound to the crafter. so I cant make one for any of my other toons or fleet mates
so basically if you want that shield at a higher mk lvl skip that mission at the lower lvl and then play it when your at lvl 40 or 45 ish
I suppose this makes somewhat happy that I have chosen to ignore the main story for both my Fed and KDF toons. I've been level 50 Fed for about 3 weeks now, but the last time I did a main story mission was over 5 weeks ago. I think that mission was "Treasure Station" or something like that.
I've been doing more story line missions for my KDF toon since to me it seems there aren't too many options to do "whatever" to level up your character compared to the Federation. For example, the PvE missions are basically dead. Currently at level 49, but I want to be level 50 before starting the next mission "Gates of Grethor" to get a max level Shard Sword of Kahless. Since it is a unique item, I am guessing it is only awarded the 1st time you play. I guess once I hit level 50, I'll also go back and do "Second Star to the Right..." to get several Plasma-Disruptor Hybrid Beam and Cannon MK X.
Just went to replay the mission and even though i know i did it previously, it does not seem to think i had done it before as it just gave me a free costume change adn lt. COMM ship token O.o
O.o Didn't the mission send you to the Cursa system to test your new ship you acquired, asking you what type of a Federation ship you want to face in combat after it gave you the ship and the costume change? Because I usually get that shield array after I finish the Cursa system thing.
I noticed today as well that the Paratrinic Shield Array is not allowing an upgraded version as a possible reward for redoing the mission at later levels. I glanced at all my available missions as well for possible redo, in case they moved it, & nowhere to be found.
I wonder if this is the same for Federation & Romulan or just KDF getting the shaft. Going to have to investigate to determine if intentional or glitched accident.
I tinkered around a bit involving this mission with my various characters today. For original KDF the "Test of Mettle" replaying for higher rank of the Paratrinic Shield Array is absent. As stated earlier the reward is just experience. For Federation & Romulan original characters they can keep upgrading their Paratrinic Shield Arrays with the missions of "Past Imperfect" & "Tradecraft". I am hoping this is a simple overlooked mistake, because if not, that is a shotty thing to do to original KDF toons.
For most of my toons I just use storyline mission rewards for their gear. It is a nice shield too. maybe accidental maybe intentional, but if intended wouldn't they had stated something?
