Prices for Reputation rewards, and the rewards themselves, are still in the process of being reviewed. I can't guarantee that changes will be made, but we're still in the process of gathering data and feedback. So thank you for sharing your opinions on the matter.

I did want to point out, in response to the first post in this thread, that all gear acquired from Reputations will be Bind-on-Pickup. You are not advancing your Reputation in order to become an Exchange-based arms dealer, or supply an army of alts with enhanced gear - these are your personal rewards. This is by design, and incredibly unlikely to change.

I can deal with the costs, but a consumable hangar item is a no go for me.

For the millionth time in this thread, the Scorpions are not consumable.

Would it be too much to ask, for Reputation-based gear, to be "Bind-to-Account" ? That way you can't trade it with others, but you can trade it between your characters. Painful enough "leveling up" the Reputation on one character, let alone multiple characters.

Hm the scorpion fighers aren't that expensive (10k dil sounds ok to me for pets using plasma), but the consumables romulan security escorts are.

Unlocking MKX gear that's bind on account at say Tier 5 might be really cool.

This isn't a Pet. The title should read: 1x Scorpion Hanger, Bound.

The cost is:
  • 10 Romulan Marks
  • 10,000 dilithium
  • 30 Engineering or Operations Officers
  • 10,000 Expertise
  • 1 Peregrine Fighter Hanger
  • 5 Warp Coils
What do you get? 1 Bound to Character Hanger. You don't get to resell them, or learn to build another.

My beef's:
  1. Clear Labeling: Bound item, Item Unlock, Consulable Item
  2. High Dilithium
  3. Ridiculous DOFF requirements. Apparantly slavery is acceptable in the Federation.
I would not be whining as much, but 30 doff's and 10,000 dilithium for something I can't even sell sucks immensely. I'll still play..... but I'll cut back my Zen purchases as I look for another game to become addicted to.

10,000 Dil is not a high cost. A Hangar is ship equipment. Back at launch, which was considered NOT grindy, Ship equipment cost around 50 something marks. That was 10 days of Exploring or PvPing. Weapons were 7 marks, or 1.4 days of Exploring/PvPing.

You're not meant to be able to gather all the necessary materials to fully equip yourself in one day; That's how MMOs work.

Same with comsumable Rommy officers. Noooo. No no.

Lord knows the cost of Scorpies when you get to T5! Need to rob the central bank of Ferenginar to get one!

I find the fact really frustrating. I do understand that this has to be for the character only, but why did you implement Bind to Account anyways?

At least you could make all items BoAcc except the set gears.

If you think it's painful even on one character, why do it at all?
