Me too. Especially on those long missions in deep space. Got to have something to power my Gameboy.

the problem is also, common really isnt common, its just not used. uncommon is pretty much the common items used. Rare isnt rare, i have rares and they were easy to get.

Quantum Torpedo Launcher Mark X (CritH) (Acc)
Blah blah blah, these aren't that effective or even interesting.

And now for my STO suggestion
Quantum Torpedo Launcher Mark X (Over) (HY1) (SPR1) (PHSD)
OVER (Overload, this torpedo has been specially modified to do 10 - 20% more damage to shields (or just more dmg wtv.))
HY1 (This torpedo has a 2.5% chance of firing a high yield version of itself. This stacks with another high yield torpedo skill if the proc goes off at the same time.)
SPR1 (This torpedo has a 2.5% chance of firing a spread version of itself. Stacks as well)
PHSD (This torpedo has a 2.5% chance of ignoring shields completely.)
I could go on and on, the ideas for making loot drops interesting are limitless. And I bet that most of you would agree that these ideas here are not game-breaking but will instead EXPAND the games longevity and re-playability. Cryptic needs to hire me asap

Keep in mind, this could all be restricted to crafting to make that a worthwhile and interesting venture.
BTW Devs, i know and understand you had to rush this out as quickly as possible. So whenever you can, add more features like this to loot.

Quick Edit: I also would love to see engines with +power attributes as well. Efficient engines are full of win.

Discuss.
They are planning to add player crafting to STO, so gear itemization is about to get a whole lot worse rather than better.
