I believe "Adventure Zone" is, and has been, Cryptic's internal name for the Defera, Nukara, and now Romulan event zones. There might not ever be a reference to "Adventure Zones" in-game.

This would be similar to periodically seeing the devs refer to the server as a "shard," even though that's not the public terminology for it. Backstage shorthand.

Works similarly, but definitely is different. New mission types, too, including more variety and ones that will unlock as you progress through the zone -- the daily missions are also awesome!

New Romulus is going to be the largest, persistent zone in the game by far; it's HUGE! LOL. Make sure to watch for Tribble patch notes to see when we open it up for testing.

Cheers,

Can we assume then, that as dailies, you will also earn Dilithium along with the other dailies in the game such as "Emancipation", "Traelus System" and "Explore Strange New Worlds"?

how do you unlock these new missions? I am begining to think that it will be with dilithium.

Lol, no. You unlock it through progression through the zone and the reputation system (stated in the blog yesterday: http://sto.perfectworld.com/news/?p=714451). I believe some inputs on some reputation "projects" may have a dilithium component, but I'm not sure if the ones for zone missions do. They may just have inputs from playing through the other content in the zone (e.g. Romulan Marks, etc.).

so you are not sure. It sounds to me like PWE is very close to going back on the statement that they "would not charge money for content."

After all the shenanigans and going back on statements from Cryptic/PWE, I am very skeptical at this point that this new content is little more than more grindy monetization systems rather than some quality, fun game design.

I would be happy to be proven wrong.

Did he say "You must pay X amount of Zen to open up more of New Romulus Adventure Zone?"

No.

He said you may need Dilithium, something earned in-game and may effectively be purchased with Zen, not must.

Don't put words in the devs' mouths. Complain about it when/if they do charge Zen to open up maps.

Very much this---^

So, let me clarify now that I have more info. The missions unlock at each tier of progression in the Romulan Reputation System. You don't have to run a specific project to unlock the content. The Reputation system will have some Dilithium inputs among others (Romulan Marks, etc.)
