I heard this as a Rumor of STO, and I think it would be a good Idea to have Vendors with specialty Items for yoru GPL (Gold Pressed Latinum). Not the ship holo emttiers, or trophies they have out, but actual in game usible items. Like heading to the klingon neutral zone on the space station you can find a ferengi, or other merchent who will sell blue, and purple items for GPL.

To balance it the items of course would be like between 10-20 times their value in energy credits. I for one have played Dabo just to get some GPL and such but as the holo emitters all burn out after 15 minutes of total usage, and I have no interest in the trophies, all it does is sit there.

Personally I would like to see a vender that will sell ship weapons, ship equipment, ground equipment consoles at the blue and purple levels. I for one would play dabo a hell of a lot if I knew I could go to a vender somewhere and buy a Mark 12, purple disruptor tactical console, anti proton mag chamber, shields, ect.

I seriously hope Cryptic devs read then and will comment on doing this.

I don't know why this request is in the C-Store section, but yeah. We do need more ways to spend the GPL. Make Dabo worth playing more than just for fun and accolades/trophies. The holo-emitters, while cool and all, are too limited and consumed on use, and have such a short duration.

Cause I couldn't figure out another place to put it, do you know where it should be?

Maybe it's here because he's talking about a "promotion"? I dunno... Heh.

Overall I like the idea. There surely needs to be more to spend GPL on than worthless expendables and trophies that can't all be displayed. It's funny about the trophies that they give you Accolades when you buy them... You get Accolades for playing Dabo, for winning GPL, and now for spending GPL.

I remember there was dev talk that we were going to be able to buy things like special clothes/uniforms, ship parts, pets (specifically I remember a dev talking about Porthos, Archer's dog). Sure wish they'd hurry up on that.

So yeah, I vote Yes on a GPL-based Black Market Economy for weapons, equipment, consoles, armor, etc.

My Ferengi character would leap at the chance of a gold-plated-latinum-plated hull.

That could be the Million GPL store purchase. As equally pointless as everything else, but bling-tastic!

I think the reason there isn't anything useful for GPL is to discourage gold pressed latinum farming, since it is fairly easy to accumulate it.

Which is Why I suggested the values for items bought by GPL being like 10-20 times normal value, a 15,000 console becomes a 150k - 300k gpl console, and a 75k shields = 750k - 1.5 mill gpl item. So you would have to spend a LOT of time at the dabo tables. OR get extremely lucky and keep hitting the 100k gpl dabo!

Some of thoes awsome mission reward should be considered for this like the electro disruptor beam array and the efficient impulse engion from the same quest as an example because you can get them only once and you can only get either one so this might be able to get us these wonderful object that we got for free for the GPL and btw i still use the impulse engine on my Vo'Quv
