I calculate how much it would cost me to get the remaining non-service items from the Cryptic Store for this game, it is 25547 points. That's getting close to $300 in points I need to buy to claim all of the remaining skins, pets, costume sets, ships, bundles, etc.
I want to treat myself to an early birthday present with the 20% plus offer, but spending another $240 beyond the $60 I just spend for the current promotion is causing me to ... pause.
What do you guys think? I want to enjoy the game to the fullest and the variety the store offers is great, but has the extras been truly worth it?
why would you buy everything in one shot? Stuff goes on sales pretty often, we've even seen stuff drop to 50% off. If you're a lifer you shouldn't be in any rush to buy any of it.
Get the stuff you want right now then hold off until the rest of the stuff goes on sale. How many bridge packs can you use at once? It might be a good time to stock up on points now that they are on sale, but season 4 is so close that should keep you busy with out the need of the fluff in the Cstore.
That is what I am doing. I was debating on if I really needed to stock up on points to "have it all". There is really only $40 to 60 worth of items I really want from the C Store such as Section 31 uniform and the Defiant & Dreadnaught ships.
Sounds like you are a collector and like to have all. Maybe this will help, the way I see it you already have everything at your desposal. You just need to pay a small fee to get it out of storage when you wish to actually equip it Don't do it! Save your money and go as needed.
It is possible to get some of the store items using in game currency - you will get one free refit vessel when you hit Vice Admiral, and you can purchase other refits, as well as the Prometheus and Excelsior, using Emblems.
