Agreed. All vanity stuff need to be permanently available imo after purchase.
Otherwise I'm not going to waste my time/resources.

I agree to this sentiment.

Please make these pets permanent.

Anyway.. this is an appeal to make the Romulan/Reman Entourage a permanent non-combat pet vs the current 4hrs limited time use. As it is now, it is not very appealing to get.

Furthermore, it does not improve and combat stats, so unlikely players will get it repeatedly (unless you're THAT vain).

You made frosted boots permanent item and it was very well received by the community.
Agreed...hope Devs can hear about this postings and thanks for the warning...better save my DIL for other common sense items

I guess being something bought with GPL it's considered to be something similar to the holoemitters which are also consumable and only last for a set amount of time.

You can toggle the holoemitters on and off, though... can you do the same with the entourage?

The cost of the Diplomatic Entourage is high enough that it really does warrant a permanent item. Under what logic can you justify not making these act like a normal non-combat pet?

I really like the item itself. As a pro-Romulan player, I would LOVE to have a pair of intimidating looking diplomatic aides following me around. But I just cannot warrant ever using it since it has such a highly restricted amount of usage.



Branflakes, or anyone at PWE- Can you please tell me why the decision was made to make the entourage items consumable and not a permanent pet? I might feel a little better about this if I knew some actual thought was behind it.

Yes, you can. Small blessings I guess.

I assume the duration was given to prevent people absolutely filling social areas with the damn things.

-edit- If they were to make these permanent, they would need a long cooldown and a duration, similar to the Shard of Possibilities. I would hate to see ESD/DS9 filled with Reman/Romulan bouncers following every single player around.
Be kinda cool to get 10 or 15 players together with these in somebody's TOS Bridge and Hall ways...

Be kinda like reenacting the TOS episode "The Mark of Gideon"

Make a cool Foundry Mission too.

To be honest, I am a big fan of Romulans and thanks for the expansion. But I too am put off by this entourage. I saw it listed as a vanity item and I grinded quickly just to get it. How disappointed I was to se in the project title when I got tier V that it was consumable.

As some of the others have said. It would be better if you made it more expensive, but permanent. I'd gladly pay 100k + dil for it...

I'm just glad i came across that topic while being only Tier 3 yet...

Now, i can understand the ressources needed for this project aren't extremely hard to gather, especially considering the relative uselessness of Latinum, but still...

A diplomatic entourage that is a 4 hours consummable? That's a bit disappointing.

Guys, at least make it a permanent vanity item, just like regular pets...

I too am curious about this, seeing as it also covers the utility drones you can get from the Nukara rep.

Hey hey now!

BAD ZOMBIE BAD GO BACK TO THE GROUND!
