Fleet Defiant now shows shields 0.9 not 0.99 like it should and did before because all Fleet Ships have if i go at the text stronger shields and hull

We're already discussing other items that could possibly get this treatment, but until we see how it actually performs we can't make any promises. Rest assured however that these are not the only items that will ever be made BoE-Account.
Please could the next thing you make bind on account be the requisition forms for buying stf items, as they only have one purpose - to be traded in for maco/khg/omega set items and can't be used to purchase dilithium or anything else?

A big meow for the account binding of items! For once, players have gotten listened to very quickly! I hope though that also purrple items will get the same treatment, such as Purrtotype Borg Salvies and Very Rare Hangar Items or weapons / shields / engines / whatever gear of purrple quality.

I would say all that is BoE, BoP currently and any lesser bound items, commissioned boffs, so they may be traded between captains on the account for training especially the bound ones. Lobi, Borg tech, stf gear, so pretty much everything.

Thank you.

*Most random drops of Uncommon or better quality are now Bind to Account on Equip.
*Previously, they were Bind to Character on Equip.
*This means they can be put in the Account Shared bank even after equipping them.
Wonderful. Question is, can this include items like the AEGIS set and Lobi items? There is no reason why these should not be account wide as well.

*Removed the Shield Healing Debuff from Transphasic Mines.

Interesting... why not make the debuff be resisted by power insulators though? The shield healing debuff is for all purposes a disruption in the shield's power system. That alone would make it useful for PVE and balanced in PVP.

The reason why its not that useful in PVE now is because the NPC's do not heal their shields...they use tactical team instead and rely on the shield natural regeneration rate (aka no shield heal boff abilities are used).

....so a better way to apply this debuff would be that it lowers the amount of shield hp that can transferred from one shield to another. That way in PVP it can be a real debuff without being too powerful (and it would be an amazing counter to the god-mode triple-tac team ships) and in PVE it'd work nicely.

[*]Tricobalt Mines and Torpedoes no longer share a cooldown timer
Nice. Now how about also removing Bioneural from sharing timer with the tricobalt torpedoes and mines? Its a completely different torpedo type AND it is unique AND it does not benefit from boff torpedo abilities.

Not just Aegis- given how expensive they are now, all crafted items should be BoE-A.

Because STF tech drops can be converted directly into Dilithium they will never allow them to be traded between characters.

My Hope is that the Dev team is smart enough to realize the best compromise to get us what we want, AND prevent changes to the Dilitium market is to NOT make the salvage/Tech BoA, but to make the REQUISITION FORMS BoA.

This would allow people to pass the gear they want to their Alts, while at the same time prevent any money issues because the requisition forms can only be turned in for gear.

This would also allow for the gear itself to remain BoP, if that is something the Devs are concerned about.

Lobi Crystals are a form of bait and switch for the lockbox system, which means they too will never be allowed to be traded. It is not in PWE's business interest to allow you to move Lobi between characters, as that lessens the chance you will buy more keys to get more Lobi on each of your toons.

I guess people don't know that Cryptic intentionally made it possible to move Dt between characters via the Dt Exchange?
There really is no reason I can think of why EDCs/Tech shouldn't be account bound.
