# 1 Ferengi whip..
07-20-2012, 11:24 PM
So i finally got enough lobi to buy one of these things, i goto the lobi store at drozna station, and its no longer there? I understand we have a new lock box now, but does that mean previous items in the lobi store get removed when a new lockbox comes out?
Please shed some light on this.
Thankyou.

The jackets don't upset me since they weren't really canon Ferengi jackets, which I'm still hoping for eventually. (Maybe a TNG/DS9 themed merchant costume pack?)

The whip being lost is a pain because it is the iconic weapon of a species.

I hope they at least look into whip variants down the line.

Honestly, given Trek's tendency for Ferengi episodes, I'd really like to see ONE GOOD pack with a Ferengi motif, proper costumes with lapels, whips (even if they're a touch different), a dabo wheel.

Heck, even as a fleet starbase project. Have the option to let some Ferengi set up shop on the starbase with an optional extra deck with a Ferengi bar and Ferengi unlockables associated.

That does raise an interesting point: just because it's not on the dabo store doesn't mean it's unavailable forever.

I'd like a weapon crafting DO assignment that has a chance at exotic weapons like Nanopulse and Ferengi whips.

item will get moved out and new ones it, but i would expect to see it back again at some point. they just want to drive people to the new sales, but there is no reason to not offer them again at some point.

I'm sure they will return someday, but some items should remain. If not the Lobi store, then the Latinum Store and give people reason to use their Latinum.
NO to ARC!

Good riddens, maybe I won't see so much people trolling Elite Ground STFs anymore with that piece of garbage whip.

The whip is actually pretty useful against the Borg so I wouldn't call it garbage.

It's a very weak weapon compared to most in terms of DPS. At long range a sniper rifle or split beam is better especially if its MACO or [Borg], or an Omega carbine is also good. Your short range weapon should be a pulsewave, preferably [Borg] or Honor Guard if you are KDF. The whip is just a fun novelty item, not meant to be a serious weapon.

It isn't garbage though as that implies the weapon has no use at all, which is incorrect given player experiences using it.
