I didn't get a chance to play with this during Beta, but I was wondering if people changed ship classes with Tiers? Such as going Nova at T2, Akira at T3, Galaxy at T4, etc. I see a lot of threads about marrying profession with ships, but none about bouncing around. Did anyone try this? Pros and cons?
only con was spending the cash and keeping spare weapons around. I had my primary (T2 escort), but had a T2 cruiser for fun. Sometimes I would whip out the cruiser for the power rush of tanking. bwhahaha!
I only got to T2, and that ship was free. Don't you get a free ship at each tier? I don't need a ship from each class each per say. There are some ships I just really want to fly around in, they just happen to be in different categories. Though I might drop the extra money for a Defiant.
You do get a free ship at each tier, and you can change ship types if you want. I think the above poster was talking about your ship's equipment, as each ship type tends towards different things (cannons for escorts, more consoles of one type for each ship type, etc).
