There are descriptions on abilities, I found then weaksource besides the T5 that I bet the cries of nerfing will be coming from the usual suspects.

So I checked the other descriptions, I seen ... cannot remember the exact name, it was something Tetryon that I suspect its a hybrid of some sort so I checked the rest and when I seen Cryo Launcher Mk X I guessed the rest but I have a good memory and I recalled there was a upgrade for it with Lobi.

Here is my advice ... LEAVE IT ALONE, its "Markless", of very, very, VERY limited use (current a grand total of one Adventure Zone and one Instance), certainly not at the level of STF sets and we dont need 2 worthless marks nobody gets because spending resources on them is a waste of time, reason people had Mk XI STF sets pre-season 7 was because they were free.

Oh and Syberghost, as it seems you failed to understand I meant [Tholian Equipment Requisition] boxes from Nukara, not I would be technically wrong with Lock Boxes either because, unless you dont play the game, getting then is easy and because of that they have no worth unless they are "retired" and even those dont really worth much.

Lock Box Keys are a different subject ...

Tholian Equipment Requisition boxes can go for some decent EC (like 200k), well the purple and blue ones as the green are worth crap because purple and blue have the chance to give part of the Crystalline set as the green do not, of course chances are you get a worthless EV suit and reason why they are worthless is because by EC value they are very low (I think even normal armor goes for more) and because the exchange is filled with them.

They are putting lobi items in Tholian reputation? Sounds great!
Let us wear Swimsuits on Foundry maps or bridges please! I would pay zen for that.

Yeah, I'm not sure I see what the issue is. My 150 Lobi got me access to this gear two seasons before those who weren't willing to pay the Lobi, and I'm fine with seeing the Mk XII crystal suit transition from the Lobi store to the rep system to make room for new lobi stuff. They can't keep adding stuff to the Lobi Store forever, and the only other (BAD BAD BAD) alternative is to retire the stuff so no one can get it.

Now, lets get our Ferengi rep system going so I can unlock all the neat Ferengi costumes and stuff without paying Lobi

I would kind of expect/hope that if they did put the Mk XII Crystalline Shell in as a reward, that the current version gets bumped up to Mk XII Ultra Rare or is otherwise redone as "Prototype Crystalline Shell".

Partially because, yeah, people did buy it with lobi. Partly, though, because I can't see a good reason to take it out of the lobi store. Then people won't buy it. Why give them for free what they would otherwise have to buy?

One look an I was instantly turned off.

Because 1) I have 0 interest in more grinding (especially on multiple characters (more Dilthium sink)), and 2) it mentioned Nukara, and I LOATHE NUKARA!



Anyhow the Tholian Reputation abilities and items offered look interesting. Like the new Auxillary Power bonus. And I hear many people are disappointed about the EVA suit set that once was in the Lobi store has been moved. And while I never bought it, I have to agree.

But the T3 and T4 abilities were switched, not sure if they were really ground or space. So this needs looked at.

So there's a Tholian reputation passive you can selevt which makes Aux power boost your weapons training, energy weapons and projectile weapons It amounts to +25 each when max Aux power. Does anyone else have a problem with this, since only the Vesta uses weapons that run on Aux power?

Just like you can get a free steak dinner by collecting dropped pennies in the parking lot.

Science ships need high Aux levels to get the most out of the science abilities.

I like the passive, as it gives Sci ships some more teeth. I hope in general there are some more buffs to Beams/Cruisers in specific, but I did not see anything particularly game breaking from the rep passives. Kinda neat to see them creative a passive that massively boosts one type of ship while still having utility to others.
