Event he best MK XII weapons aren't as good as the gun that comes with the MK XII crystal fiber set. The other weapons that drop are a waste of marks and DL compaired to that gun. I run around with Ambush and one and two shot tholians on Nukara like it's going out of style so I'd say dont waste your time. I'll be skipping the store unlocks and doing the rep solely for the passives and the active power
1hr of work @NYS Min Wage 7.25 = 725 Zen
725 x 102 (or current exchange rate) DL = 73950 DL <- can you earn that per hour in game?

The box stuff was not great but not bad. I think the goal here was to pretty much give nukara marks instead of boxes with random items which most of which were just crap. So in what it is now and what it will be the change will be better so you pick what you want and don't need to be cluttered with crap that will end up never being used and then recycled months down the road.

Some of the things though that weren't stated were things like the ground EV suit part of sets. Some of us do have the C/Z store EV suits. There needs to be a way to get those into our ground sets or either some kind of crafting even if its thru the doff system where we can combine it with the actual set piece for the bonuses from both and keep the Zen paid EV suit costume.

The other thing is I saw that tholian sword and it just reminds me too much of rainbows and think the lucky charms leprechaun is going to jump out of the sword. As for melee would be nice to get a mek'leth and the andorian melee weapon with these too maybe.

Overall tho the changes are welcomed they just need a bit more polish and a little bit more added to them to make it perfect.

Nukara was the place that turned me around on ground combat in this game, because if nothing else, there be action.

I will wait to see how many space mission options I get before deciding how to proceed into this personally. I'm not really sure I need another ground set, but I'll take my passive powers thanks. ;-)

1) We aren't quite ready to announce our plans on how Nukara Marks will be awarded. However, it is unlikely we'll be "taking away" anything. Keep an eye out for future forum posts on the subject!

2) Not a darn thing. Any existing rewards earned from Nukara are yours to keep!

3) Indeed. We won't be taking away rewards that you already possess.

Regards,

Thanks for the information. The next question is:
Will awards currently in our inventory, (such as EV suits and anti-proton guns), marked as bind-on-equip remain that way or be converted to bind-on-aquire?

Hi Alanburch,

There are currently no plans to change the binding rules of the weapons in your inventory. Items that are marked as Bind To Account On Equip will remain that way.

Hello all,

I thought I would pop in and answer some of your question. So, without further ado...

Q: Will it come with missions per tier? like the romulan rep?
A: There will not be any new unlockable missions with the Nukara Strikeforce reputation.

Q: Will there be a way to earn Nukara Marks outside of Nukara Prime.
A: Indeed. There will be a way to earn Nukara Marks in several existing queueable events. More details will be made available in the near future revealing exactly which tasks will award them.

Q: Registering my Mk XII Tholian Ground set? What's that all about?
A: There are three registration projects, one for each piece of the existing Tholian Ground Mk XII set. To complete these projects, all you'll need is a MkXII set piece. In short, you put the requisite item into the project, and a few seconds later you'll be awarded with your piece back and 50 Nukara Marks. You can complete these upgrade projects once per piece in this set (per character) for a potential total of 150 Nukara Marks.

Q: Is the existing Tholian Ground set considerd one of the new ground sets?
A: You'll be able to earn a Mk XII version of the existing set. In addition, there are two brand new ground sets available in Mk X, Mk XI and Mk XII variants.

Q: Also, any sneak peaks at the new space sets, or can you let us know what makes a Tetryon weapon "Refracting?"
A: I don't believe we're quite ready to release this "super seekrit" information yet. However, if you focus really hard you might be able to hear me sharing this information with you telepathically.

Q: What is going to happen to my Nukara Equipment Boxes?
A: While they will no longer be awarded as mission rewards, any existing boxes will not be removed from players who already have them.

I hope that answers your immediate questions. I'll keep an eye on the comments on the blog post itself and in the forum thread and I will pop in and answer questions when time allows. Thanks for reading!

Best Regards,

Are those projects going to be available only for people who posses the set? What if someone accidently starts the project, yet doesn't have this particular piece (for whatever reason)? Since there's no "cancel project" option won't this be problematic for some players?

Any plans to give an easy access to very cheap ev suits (like 1 dil or 100 ec like the ones from the current boxes we can find on the exchange)? We need 4 to play the T4/T5 romulan reputation mission, and I don't want to spend like 20k dil to play episodes... I think many players will also need new EV suits for their romulan chars, so cheap EV suits are really important just to play your content.
