Still, having different weapon energy types would be cool too.
Why not have it faction-specific crafting? Just like how they had Lirpas Federation only and Bat'leths KDF only with the old system?
NO to ARC!

Yeah. I was more lamenting the fact that previously the only two options the Republic players had to get these weapons was either common white versions from their stores, or to pay out dilithium for the purple versions.

Also, if you're in a fleet with your Romulan I still think that fleet equivalent versions of these weapons should be available from the fleet stores of whatever faction you chose. They allow the Romulan fleet ships to be bought from the shipyard, so why not their faction weapons too?

I don't see why not.

I think these weapons should be in the drop tables with all the other plasma ground weapons.

And yes, I think they should be craftable, but I'll take (more easily) obtainable.

If anyone has an "in" with one of the devs and could direct them to this thread, I'd appreciate it. I PM'd Trendy once, but she's busy and I don't want to annoy her.

+1 Add special romulan plasma ground weapons to crafting.

whatever you do, don't just delete them from the game.

Already did with the rifles and repeater pistol. The repeater/piercing beam mechanics feel a bit clunky without shooter mode (which I still used back when I used these weapons regularly), but the Mk XIs definitely hold up with the other "end game" weapons. An option to make their auto fire modes a toggle when in RPG mode would help, but it's not that big of a deal.

I forgot how good the models for these are too, the repeater pistol's a bit big, but the piercing/wide beam rifles are excellent. It's hard to give up the canon Romulan disruptor look, but these fit in great alongside the elite fleet phasers.
