# 1 Rep Gear... Why so secretive?
01-09-2013, 05:10 PM
Why are the gear and set abilities unknown until you unlock the blasted things? Is Cryptic afraid no one will spend the marks if you knew what it was?

Just let the players see the stats in the Rep Store!
You can still make it un-purchasable until that part gets unlocked.

Same with gear set abilities! You don't know what they do until you have the pieces!

Cryptic is taking their name a bit too literally.
Sometimes I think I play STO just to have stuff to rant about on the forums!

Because if you knew how bad / bugged the high tier Romulan gear was no one would ever bother leveling it.

Reman space set is still garbage for an end-game set. It should be on equal footing with MACO/KHG or Omega. It takes as much effort to get so it should be as good.

Romulan space set is a copy paste, complete with obsolete set bonuses. (particle generators dont buff plasma DOT anymore and the increased projectile speed/defence dont affect the hyper plasma torpedo).

Romulan Beam Array could do with being 360 degrees but other than that its pretty nice, as is the Hyper torpedo.

Romulan Plasma space weapons are bugged. They all have 5% less dps than they should/the other mk xii purples because the game doesnt consider the disruptor proc a modifer and weapons gain a 5% dps boost for each modifer they have.

Fix the Romulan Space Weapons, put some effort into the Romulan Space Set and consider reworking the set bonuses. Then people wont feel it was such a waste of time.

most of the information is on the sto wiki site but it gets updated
slowly, i think 1 or 2 people are updating it little by little.

but all you have to do is ask i am pretty sure someone can give you
information on what ever items.

Go to TheTradingChannel in game and ask for information i am sure someone will tell you there. might get a warning of being off topic but its a good channel to get information when you need it, if you cant find it anywhere
