# 1 Cryptic Store Bonus Items
09-14-2010, 07:42 PM
Before cryptic put the special tribble and targ pup in the cryptic store, the only way to get them was to get them with your game at certain stores. Now you can just get them with 120 C-points. Since this is being done with some of these items which could only get through buying another copy of the game, could other special items like the automated defense battery, deployable turrets, and unique armors be sold like this too? If they all cost only 120 like the tribble and targ, that would really dazzle me.

I also would like to pick up the Automated Defense Battery without having to buy a Digital Deluxe Edition of the game. All the other perks of that version are available in the C-Store why not that one?

Here here! It is long past time that they added those items to the C-store.

I partially agree... Eventually they should get there, and the turret is important (you guys have no idea how many deaths this thing has saved me from, because it kills of plasma torps).

Just remember:

The turret is only useful when plasma torps get within 3 km, and only every 5 seconds and it only does 46 DPS, so it wont take down any ships for you. (range and recharge time). so it won't save you in Terra Dome or Borg DSE's

The armor is useless above Lt. Cmdr, because it dosen't level up with you.

(ya... i have both)

So wanting theese things because you think it might help you beyond theese areas... Well... they won't help you then.

If only it were an engineering console instead of a tactical console. That would be sweet.

Signed +1. ALL pre-order/edition items should be able to be sold on the C-Store or none at all. Half of my stuff is up there and half of my stuff is still exclusive. It doesn't make much sense to me.

Not quite. I have paid for the tribble, but I don't use it. (Damn thing eats all my food and creates babies. I should be allowed to neuder it!) I also have the "antique" Consitution. I have used the Borg bridge officer on some of my characters, but not all of them. For all of these things, a particular character concept may strike my fancy and I then decied to use them.

Well, the Borg BO, and the Tribble can actually help you alot, but as I said the Armor dosen't level with you, and as such it is pratically useless above Lt.

The turret only fires one every 5 seconds, a single shot, that does 46 damage (if I remember right), so it can't take a ship, and it can only take out one incoming high yield projectile.
It is useful in most PvE and PvP matches, but only because there are so few incoming HY projectiles at a time... It is useless in for example terradome, where the plasma torpedoes keep raining from the enemies.

That only makes them "barely useless".

In the case of the BO and the Tribble, I believe there are equivelents in game for them, if not extremely close to them.

I think one of the reasons they are not in there is because they are not avalabile through in-game means nor is any equivilent to them. From my point of view, I kinda don't see these going up on the Store because that.

On the flip side however, I think these would work better as, say, a mission reward for they are at. But this is just my opinion.
