Is there usual a zen sale or ship price drop around Christmas like there is on some other games? Sorry for the nooby question :/ Thanks!

Probably not anymore, since Cryptic became very stingy with sales since being purchased by PWE. We used to have 50% sales and some kind of sale every month or two.

Between Christmas, the new year, and the anniversary I expect that there might be some kind of sale.

well there was just a 20% discount on all ships for a couple weeks. I was able to afford my gauramba during that one. And right now there's a sale on keys. Plus the big sale on lifetime subscriptions last month.

So might be another sale coming up. But these seem to be 15%-30% I haven't seen anything at 50% off.

I'm hoping for a sale that pushes the price of costume sets down to 360-400z. I have a bunch I want to get. =)

There will almost certainly be a sale between now and the anniversary. Be patient and enjoy the 2 freebie ships (Breen Chel Grett and Anniversary ship) while you wait.

Resist the urge to buy the upcoming Andorian cruiser full price if you can.

Last year Cryptic did a half-off sale for Champions Online (wasn't playing STO then, but still Cryptic) after Christmas. Of course different year, different owners, stuff changes. Still, doesn't hurt to wait a week if you plan to buy something.

I'm hoping they will have a sale as Christmas gets real close...I've been holding off on buying a Guramba for over a week.

They've had a sale of some sort most every holiday. This has been true regardless of the owners.

No, do not buy the Andorian ship, I heard its crap. Its full of Blue Men Groups.

Personally waiting for the Vesta Pack to get discounted

Now where is my Vesta bridge, or for that matter BREEN bridge?
