Let's give space everything with extra op consoles. Let's look at ground and take away the fun of ground pvp. So disappointing with 5 slots and the loss of the shard and cane. No one will be using them anymore :/
Most of us have been wanting to mix/match kit powers since launch , this would be sweet.
Converting devices and such to count for the 5 slot limit? not so sweet
Funny considering how much a big deal they used to make about the special devices ( re-run weeks anyone ? )
Assume this is coming for reasons other than quality of life player improvments : they really want us blowing cash on those stupid lobi consumable and we will no doubt see 'ground kit powers' inside the next lockbox...
The new Priority One Podcast with CaptainGeko revealed that Season 9 will feature a new kit revamp. (Listen to Interview, jump to 25:10 for Kit Revamp)
Apparently, all kits will be broken up into individual abilities. It will then be possible to slot five kit abilities into the kit slot at level 50. However, they also plan to convert non-consumable devices, such as the Shard of Possibilities, Ophidian Cane, and the Frosted Boots into Universal kit powers. As a result, players would be forced to decide between existing class kit abilities and non-consumable devices. Geko did ask for feedback, thus I decided to start a thread on the subject.
For me personally, I'd prefer that all items currently classified as devices to remain as such. The kit revamp itself will be great, players will be able to choose between their various kit abilities. However, I think devices should remain in their current state, it adds an additional level of customization to characters. If they were converted to universal kit abilities, we would lose a level of customization and we'd be further limited on the number of usable non-consumable abilities.
I agree. Five-slot kits are not enough to compensate for the loss of slots available to use for special powers that are completely unrelated to a career. Those abilities were originally rewarded as devices and should remain as such.
If they could be slotted into either a kit or a device slot, I'd be fine with it. I would also be okay with it if they implemented kits as six slots.
I would also like to see them add a separate ground pet slot, for combat and/or non-combat pets. That, or make allowances for "Pet Handling" kits that would finally allow KDF to summon targs or saurs.
And while I'm opening up the wish list, Gorn should be able to slot a kit power to "Throw Rock".
