# 1 Mesh Weaver Pets

So, there's the following on Redshirt:

  • Elite Mesh Weaver Carrier Pets are available from Fleet Starbases that have unlocked carrier pet stores.
So I decided to pop over to Redshirt and take a look. Knew I wouldn't be able to look at the Elite with the toon, but figured I'd be able to see the Normal (Blue) and Advanced (Purple)...

...just the Normal.

2x Tetryon DBB
Tetryon BA
Tholian Thermionic Torp
FAW1
APB1
EM1
Supports Recluse Tetryon Grid

Like I said, though - can't see the Advanced nor Elite.

Anybody have the stats on those?

Reason I ask is kind of simple. Have you ever fought Mesh Weavers? Notice that ability they have?

Tractor Beam...

...is Cryptic giving the KDF Tractor pets?

I'm more worried about them possibly using that really annoying web-wall thing they can do. To me that'd be far worse than tractor beams.

Plus, I thought that Orb Weavers and Recluses used Tractor Beams. I don't think I've ever seen it from a Mesh Weaver though.

That said, they would not be giving the KDF tractor pets, since Feds and eventually Romulans would have just as much access to them as anyone. If anything that'd make them more of a problem than Danubes because they're Frigate-level pets, and have their other abilities and powers as well.

Here is the Advanced version.
The first we heard of getting new PvP maps "soon" was in August of 2010. We're consistently told something will be coming with the "next" update. Absolutely nothing has come to PvP since launch.

I think it's finally time Cryptic stopped stringing us along, don't you?

The "Supports Recluse Tetryon Grid" part makes me wish that console was even half decent.

The patch notes specify an elite version- it'll just be available through the starbase at tier 5, like all the other elite fighters.

I see they have APB 2 built in. Seems like that would make them quite the DPS monster in PvE.

Well as long as they don't get that retarded Tholian Tetryon FAW that knocks shields offline for 10 seconds

They knock out weapons, not shields.

SO annoying. Especially in PvE, where Engines/Shields/Aux don't even really matter.
