It's a shame they didn't add the JHAS to the list of possible ships from this box, it would have been fitting.

Adding it would also have helped bring down its price on the exchange. Since its initial retirement it has consistently remained the most expensive ship on the exchange, its 200,000,000+ EC price making it unobtainable for most, and infeasible for many.

The items being introduced into the game with this lock box will likely make it even more powerful (especially for those min-maxed for it) and its price will rise again, possibly hitting the exchange ceiling.

If Cryptic follows previous form, we will get the complete listing of items in the coming days, they usually spread the information release out across several days; the announce, the grand prize info, the complete listing and FAQ. Borticus has already posted a list of the Dominion Duty Officers though.

Are you flipping kidding me?

Devs WTF are you doing?


Giving away what is essentially one of THE best torpedo weapons to the federation in return for nadeon detonator which is LITERALLY the most WORTHLESS console in the game?

Nadeon detonator triggers cooldown on other boff torpedo abilities... it doesnt do ANY bonus damage to ships. All it does is knockback which is utterly pointless to do if you could've instead fired a torp high yield or spread instead.

Very bad idea. Either buff the nadeon detonator or give the KDF something else.

TORPEDO POINT DEFENSE SYSTEM for example. One effective torpedo WEAPON for another.

The Attack Ship is not available in this box, but there are some items from the box that will work on it, and the ability to purchase special hangar pets if you own one and the new Dreadnought -- more info in the blog. We'll also be posting a FAQ with a bullet list, similar to this one, in the very near future.

Cheers,

Well I can only way ... wow, thats pants on retarded as we have STF gear that have visuals enabled and the only issue is the Gorn heads, I dont recall the Jem hadar having helmets so this should been for most a non-issue.

Hi Brandon.

Am I correct in assuming that you have to have the Jem'Hadar attack ship and the new carrier on the same toon? I'm really hoping that's not the case.

Thanks.

A knockback you can train a BOFF for which has a shorter cooldown and doesn't trigger a CD for all skills.
All cloaks should be canon.

That is the case.

As another added bonus for owners of a Jem?Hadar Attack Ship, there will now be a Hangar item available for use exclusively for the Jem?Hadar Dreadnought Carrier that will allow this ship to launch a wing of Jem?Hadar Attack Ships. Scaling quality levels of these items will be available for purchase from the Shipyard Store, Dilithium Store, or Fleet Store only if you have obtained the Jem?Hadar Attack Ship through a prior promotional event.

Of curse that's what they mean! Everything is bound tot he toon you crack it on so you will need to have both on the same toon.

I am glad to see some more carriers and finally some MU escorts. How much DL will the special Attack Ship hangar cost in DL? I am going to assume it's going to be some sort of ridiculous price in comparison to any other carrier pets. Will we ever get cross-faction boxes that have carrier pets in them from the other side? Siphons for the Fed's and well... the Klingons get the shaft on that.

I highly doubt you will ever see the Torpedo Point Defence console in a lock box, same goes for all the other consoles that come on Tier 5 ships.

Most, if not all of these consoles are only usable on their respective Tier 5 ships, let alone cross-faction. When cryptic removed the Tier 1-4 universal console limitations, it was made clear then that special consoles that come on Tier 5 would remain exclusive to their ships, and due to the abilities/powers they grant its quite understandable.

Overall after reading through the blog, I'm quite pleased with the lock box content, especially being a Jem'Hadar fan.

Oh I did not think of that, bad news indeed, my Jem'Hadar (alien) char is KDF faction.

Hmm...

- so i take it there will be no Dominion Reputation system anytime soon, not if you blow all the good Dominion stuff out now.

- Tactical Carrier? PLEASE come with 8 weapon slots and 5 tac console slots? PLEASE? I hated all carriers so far because they just had no oomph and were Sci centric, a tactical carrier for a tactical captain... i want that!

- i see the Jem'Hadar Bug Ship NPC version still has not been updated to the Player Ship visuals since last year. could you please get that done, the low res NPC ship is really nothing fancy to look at, and if i have them as option for the fighter bay, they better look their best!

- The Dreadnought scale was way to small last time i checked, plz correct the scale UP, that ship is supposed to be Tholian Dreadnought HUGE!

- i want to see the visuals of the JemHadar Armor... now!
All interesting points, definitely agree with the first two!
