500 emblems is too steep for unlocking a ship on a single character but if it unlocked the ship account-wide, this would be reasonable.

This wouldnt be soo bad, only in the respect that when you buy it in the C-store.......it opens it account wide....so why not this?...unless it does this already..then nevermind...(i bought everything in the C-store......yea...im that guy......)

I will probably get shot for this but scouting for that elusive Peko-Peko Albatross for WEEKS in Star Wars Galaxies made the victory just that much sweeter. I spent ages on it, and i got it. Took me a while but i loved every second.

I like grinding and wasting my time. This MMO is very story driven, you can level to the max through the entire story. That is a brilliant feature of it. But for the people that want to stick it out the long haul (i mean set up a tent), the option to wouldn't go amiss.

OK when people say you can get 500 emblems in a month they really mean doing the same dailies 5 days a week. That's arduous at best torture at worst. I agree emblems need to be secondary to paying via the C-store but seriously, right now as a person who works, has a GF and other commitments getting 500 emblems isn't an option.

Btran
Defari
PvP
Fleet action

(I've just found out that there are Devidian dailies - where?)

OK that's gonna take me 3-4hrs. 5 days a work, give or take....

This is why i bought everything in the cstore.........i dont have the time to sit and rub antiburn/itch cream into my hind quarters cause i want something emblem wise other than in game weps and equip...or the usual.

I figure wth its only money right? If thats an issue however.....I can see where the whole grind issue would be a little iffy. only really considering other MMO's that Ive played....500 isnt that bad.......perhaps a thrid option to obtain the goodies?

Wow, that brings back memories...

"SAND GIANT, TRAIN TO ZONE", followed by the hard decision of whether to go jump in the water and hope you wouldn't get followed all the way out to "drown" depth, zone south and possibly get ganked by Zorn, or go north and run into irritated spirits who could suck levels away from you.

So, 500/15 is 33 days of striaght emblem grinding.

How long does it take to get those emblems on average?

4-5 Hours of playing.

So that equates to 132 - 165 hrs of gameplay....
4 to 5 hours?
  • Vice Admiral B'Tran yields 4 Emblems and can be done in a few minutes (just take the "scan 5" missions). You can also run the regular B'Tran exploration mission (doing the same 5 scan) and convert the Marks of Exploration to Emblems. Last I checked, it was a 1 to 1 ratio, so you would earn another 5 Emblems there.
  • Aiding the Deferi dailies yields 5 emblems and can be completed in well under an hour.
  • Eta Eridani yields anywhere from 1 to 6 Emblems.
  • Most all Fleet Actions can be completed in under an hour, and those each yield 3.

Not including Fleet Actions, a player can earn those 15+ Emblems doing the B'Tran, Deferi and Eta Eridani missions in about 2 hours per day.

Realistically....more like 3 and a half

I agree. This is what it should do.
