I am about to hit 50 and will be looking at getting myself a new ship. I like the look of the temporal science vessel - but am not so keen on the lottery system to attain it - or the amount of keys i would need to sell on the exchange in order to buy one from there.
So, looking at the C-Store i am contemplating 1 of 2 ships:
The Science Odyssey or the Science Vesta. I have no problem dropping 25 euro on either, but i am a little concerned about shelf life - how well do these ships fare (with decent equipment obviously) in PVP/PVE? While both appear science focused, the difference in stats indicates different play styles for both i would imagine (or at least, lending themselves to different play styles).
I am going to do some research into both, but am also posting this to gather some community feedback.
Oh and Hello!
Greetings rivertam32! Honestly I've not flown the Vesta sci, but I do use the Sci Oddy on my Engineer. It's a pretty boss healer if you ask me, but I was also one of the suckers who paid $50 bucks for the whole 3 ship package. I think if you are going to fly the Oddy the 3 pack is the best choice, and from what I know of the Vesta it's probably the same.
Along the lines of getting a new ship, it would really depend on what kind of captain you are, and what you are looking to accomplish with it. I fly a great many of the C-store ships on my characters and could probably offer you some decent advice as to which one I would suggest. Anyway post up some additional info or PM me directly and I'd be glad to give you a recommendation.
If it makes you feel slightly better, Cryptic states it is NOT releasing the Amabssador T5 version via the c-store. It maybe will become a fleet ship... but that is it.
