# 1 you cannot equip that item
03-07-2012, 01:12 AM
Hi, I've been having the following problem. The game is not letting my equip a select few items. Here is the background

I'm a rear admiral lower half so I should be able to equip level X items. So i got a level X body armor, but it says that I cannot equip that item. I can equip other level X body armors, but not that one. Why?

I ran into a similar problem last week. I went to equip a level XI beam bank on my escort class ship (the free one for rear admirals lower) and it would not let me equip that item either. I thought maybe the lower tier rear admiral couldn't equip XI so i let it go. But I know I can equip level X.


Anyone have any ideas? Do I need to be part of the Omega squadron to equip certain items?

Any help would be appreciated.

Whenever I've had the game client tell me I cannot equip something I know I can on my ship, I just beam up to my ship and do it in space. It's worked that way for me when I ran into this in the past, but it's been a few weeks.

I will give that a try, but this issue is with armor, but I will try to equip it in space and visa versa. So...Dev's...any thoughts about this?

Sorry, I missed the "body armor" phrase. My fault.

Had the same thing happen to an Alt of mine with Body Armor Mk X which said RALH, but my RALH Tac could equip it.. I submitted a bug report.

I thought this post was going to be about the Jem'Hadar personal cloaking thingy. I have yet to figure out how to slot those.

I've gotten to the point where I don't know what will fit on a Odyssey class star ship. There have been some great weapons and consoles I would love to equip but when the ship class is listed, the star cruiser class isn't listed so i don't know what to buy and equip. I've also had that same problem you all are having.

OK, last night I went up to rear admiral upper ans then I could equip them. It is odd because as rear admiral lower I could equip mk X things too. I wish there was something tyat remarked which mk X gear was for upper and which is for lower. I will try ti equip a level XI something and see how it goes :-) :-) :-)

Oh, as fif what can go onto your cruiser...well, anything really but cannons. When you see the different classes of ships that can equip an item...your cruiser is not on the list. But, anything that does NOT list ships you can certainly equip...things like dual beams and stuff like that are certainly available to you. I believe thebest way to equip a cruiser would be to go heavy beams, a mine and a top....when your beams take out the shield, throw a tractor beam to hold this slippery escorts, turn and hit them with a top....and at the same time mine all the time...transphasic are nice because they cut through shields. That's my opinion, I hope it helps :-) :-) :-)

Thanks for that very much. It really started ticking me off not knowing what to equip on the Odyssey class cruiser. i know how to equip everything else.
