# 1 Entourage plead
01-01-2013, 02:07 AM
I basically went through the romulan reputation for just 2 items one of which is the entourage.

Now I don't care for consumables so I took note of all items that read consumables.

Entourage is the only reputation item that doesn't warn you it's consumable and it's the only non-combat pet in the entire game that is not permanent.

So my plead is for common sense really, I don't care about the price of the item but please make it permanent.

Soooo...... it is a consumable? Lame sauce. If you're going to go that far for a Pet, then for goodness sake, it'd better be permanent.

4 hrs total use. And while the T5 status screen says "Vanity item", the projects themselves say: "Consumable: Romulan/Reman Diplomatic Entourage" on them.

Caveat Emptor.

Yep, I was also very disappointed when I saw that. A 'pet' which disappears after 4 hours? This is ridiculous. Make it cost 750 Romulan marks and 30.000 dilithium for all I care, but make it a permanent vanity item!

I totally agree. I couldn't believe it when I hit tier 5, excited to buy my entourage pets, only to discover this terrible 4-hour garbage. Cryptic, please reconsider this!

Consumable, and costs 15,000 GPL. Pass. Screw you to the developer who thought that up.

HAHA nice joke ! Wait, that's not a joke ?
Yeah 15K dil for a 4h non combat pet, sound so exiting...

I planned to take one of them, now I won't. Thanks for the warning, saved 15K dil.

It's a consumable ? This is ridiculous. Again, something i won't buy because of bad design choices.

That's really disappointing... and I was planning on getting both sets.

If it's a vanity item, why give it a timer at all?

And speaking of vanity items, I was extremely disappointed about the time limit on personal holoprojectors too. So much for buying a Jem'Hadar First and a Breen one. I can see you giving it a cooldown if, say, the Borg drone one let you slip past other drones in ground STFs... but they're not even functional in combat.

Won't bother getting them. Way to make us feel rewarded for hitting T5. Bad form, sirs.
