# 1 Consumable Transwarp Coils....
03-12-2012, 10:11 PM
But I noticed in the D-Store that you can purchase consumable transwarp coils that alllow a one per use jump to virtually any sector. My lament is that they are not permanent.

I'm a VA with a fully decked out ship and character and BOFFs in all end game gear. I'm racking up dilithium but don't really want to spend anyway that you could make the abilities permanant?

Say if I have to pay 32,000 per coil, that coil when consumed gives me the ability to always be able to jump to sector blah blah blah. If I want to add another sector; get another 32,000 Dilithium, wash, rinse, repeat. It will give me something to work towards grinding the purple rock.

Pretty please? With sugar on top?

I think the 32k is a bit too expensive also, but they should remain as a consumable. I would have thought that a better way to obtain these were as rewards for destroying Borg Cubes in the Red Alerts (Like in Voyager)

Yeah 32,000 is steep but you have to start somewhere. Also, I suppose I could live with them remainiing consumables if they were drops as you suggested. Either way would make me happy.

Why don't you convert your Dilithium into C-Points and get the T5 Excelsior, with the built-in Transwarp ability to go to most sectors...

Or you could just fly everywhere. It takes, what, 10-15 minutes tops to go from one end of the galaxy to the other? It's not THAT long... *Chugs along*

Level up to Ambassador through the DOff system, it gives you 3 transwarps that are quite useful. Also, you can transwarp to most missions for only 100-500EC.

I picked up a set for my Klink that is still at lower tiers on the DOff system. I've only used one (of 10) so far, and don't expect to need any more for quite a while.

Ya at 32k these things are useless. It would take me longer to get 32k dilithium then it would for me to get to my destination, since it takes roughly 15 mins to cross the game map. I would really like to know the thought process behind the price.

I got into a debate with Branflakes over this in chat a few days ago.


Simply put, the Devs say it's worth the 32,000 Dilithum because you can go to ANY zone. But yet, with mission transwarps you can have access to almost any zone for the cost anywhere between 100 to 32000 EC. And the zones you cannot have instant access too (Feds it's Omega Leonis, and Klingons it's Sirius and Iota Pavonis), it's viritually a short hop from a nearby transwarp locations.


So is these Consumable Transwarps worth it? ABSOLUTELY NOT!

If they lowered the price to 1000 DL, then I think it would be fairer in price, but not 32,000 Dilithium, which can take hardcore grinders a couple of days to get back or weeks for a casual player.



So save your DL and use mission and diplomatic / maruader transwarps, it's more efficient.
