# 1 After This Event Ends
03-17-2012, 11:47 PM
I expect the prices on Event Prizes still on the exchange will skyrocket.

Does anyone remember how much the Bug Ship was selling for during that event and how much they increased after the event ended.

Even those cross faction consoles will probably be going way up.

I decided to get mine before the event ended.

3 millionish for a cross faction console seems reasonable, but I expect the last ones left after the event may see them increase to as much as 10 million, or more.

Get em while they are cheap if there are any left is my advice.

You mean the lockbox prizes? I can't think of anything worthwhile in those except the cross-faction console (which isn't one of the really cool ones) and the Galor.

Or are you selling, hence trying to encourage people to 'get em now!' ?

Naturally I am only refering to the consoles and the Galor which are the only two things worth a major investment.

Actually I am not selling a Galor, but am fighting the urge to buy one and made this post as part of my internal conflict to spending that much for it.

Was wondering how the price history of the Bug ship went.

I disagree... nothing in this game is worth a major investment at this point... and thoose who I've spoken to who have gotten the Galor, say it wasnt worth their money...

Did you speak with them before, or after they became aware of / and, or tried the new weapons and the set powers?

With the full Jem'Hadar set you get the Victory is Life Proc (1% debuff target), but only on the GALOR, or the Bug ship and lets not forget the +7% damage for those new weapons with two procs. (Polaron/Tetryon).

The consoles on the other hand are not such a major investment for just 3 millionish right now.

Its like why not have them if you can afford them. I did buy extras of those for other Alts I may want to use them with down the road. If they go way up in price I may just resell them instead.

The FED console can be very usefull in two of the space STF's. Being able to slow down a whole pack of enemy ships to buy you some time can often mean the difference between a completion in CURE, or at the very least getting the the optional in Khitomer.

Anything you can get for energy credits that you would normally have to pay CP in the store for is by default a great buy/investment.

Doff Packs for instance. I have bever had to pay CP for a Doff pack.

Set the settings to:
Number of sides: 100
Number of dice to roll: 1
Number of rolls: 1

Count the times you get a 1 at clicking "roll dice" and ask yourself if this buff should really be the make or break in your descission to spend millions of EC.

The lockbox galor is a quite unique ship which with its high turn and low HP probably comes closest to a cruiser/escort hybrid. But from what I gathered from the few PvP posts about it, its kind of too squishy to be a threat there and lots of PvE can also be done in a good equiped T2 ship (plan some extra time when going after bad guys in a Constitution refit ) so it is not a requirement there too.

If you are not a collector or have a char who "needs" this for RP reasons because of his/hers cardassian background story there is no reason at all to spend such a huge amout of ECs.

I accept the fact that 1% is pretty minimal, but lets not forget that your going to have potentially up to 8 weapons on a beam boat configuration that have a chance to proc.

Even on a cannon fit you will have at least three.

Your ignoring the dual Polaron/Tetryon procs.

In closing the Galor may be squishy for a Sci, or a TAC, but what about for an Engineer.

*confused about the dual proc weapons* Ain't these usable on all ships?

About the PvP squishiness: As said, thats an impression I got from reading some posts about it. Maybe if a PvPer reads here who has experienced this ship in PvP can answer that, otherwise I'd suggest asking around in the PvP forums. My personal STO PvP experience is that at one point I got aware it has PvP.

Yes they are usable on all ships, but only with the Jem'Hadar set do you get a +7% damage. Since those weapons are only Rare Quality in terms of damage output if you don't use the Jem'Hadar set for the extra 7% damage to increase their DPS to that of a very rare weapon they are arguably not worth using and without getting the third 1% proc for using the set they are arguably not worth using either because to get it you have to forgoe using the Borg Set and of course all of those factors adding up to make it worth it require a Galor, or a Bug ship.

In other words to maximize the benifits of the new weapons you really do need to use a Galor, or a Bug ship with the full Jem'Hadar set.

You could go with using just two parts of the Jem'Hadar set to get the 7% and still be able to use 2 parts of the Borg set with a MACO shield and that arguably may be very effective on some other ship. I have not tried it, or talked with anyone who has, so I do not know for sure.
