Thanks, that was what I was wondering and yes quite odd I suppose. However, is the Kumari that fragile??? I read a comment about Kumari being a glass "nose" or something like that. By the way, these dominion boxes, do you know if the odds are good at winning one of those Jam Hadder attack ships?? Have about 40 of those boxes in stock, but the keys cost a fair amount...

I wouldn't bother playing the box lottery. I only open boxes now if I need Lobi. I tried like heck to get a Jem Bug with the packs a while ago. Just cost me lots and no ship. Would have been better off just saving the EC.

Instead of opening boxes, I raised the EC to buy my current JHEC. I got it for a steal. It's a great ship and fun to play.

Honestly, go with the ship that you find the most fun to play. That's always my recommendation as it's supposed to be fun.

If you have EC to burn, I recommend the Temporal ships. Grab the mobius and wells off the exchange, and open enough lockboxes for lobi to get the temporal set.

The mobius is a great cruiser/escort hybrid with some great universal boff slots, and can be run with a beam setup nearly as effectively as a cannon setup, while retaining high DPS and survivability.

Cheers!

It's not as defense oriented as say a Patrol Escort. But it's not as fragile as others make it out to be.

The JHAS doesn't come out of the Dominion Boxes these days. So don't waste the money on keys for those unless you want the stuff that does come out of those boxes.

And how do you accumulate enough EC to buy a ship?? From what I saw, can only accumulate 10,000,000 cr?dits ......a ship must cost more than that. Also while on subject...where do you get a ship for EC...never saw that on exchange..

Thanks again for info

Either upgrade to gold, or buy the energy credit cap increase from the c store.

You can pickup mirror ships on the exchange pretty cheap, just type in mirror and hit search. Ships are found under the category of reward packs, you have to know the ship you want to search for though.

Mirror ships will give you a good starting base and then you can improve from there. Not all ships have a mirror equal, but the advanced and patrol escorts do.

I fly the kumari, I switched to a cruiser recently just for a change, lasted 2 days and I went back. I'm sure if you are use to cruisers, you would have the same experience. If you really want 1 of the Andorian ships the Charal or Khyzon are both amazing ships, with a little more survivablity than the Kumari.

No love for the regent? its not a bad ship, trumphed by the fleet version at t5 ship yard, but you get a good idea of if you like it or not just by flying that, and the wide angle quantum was made for beam boats, shame you cant use 2, so its almost worth it for that.

and then if you get the regent you use the extra 500 zen to buy a fleet ship module and wait/help save 10 mil ec to get access to a t5 ship yard, and then get the fleet assault cruiser for 1 module instead of 4.

still over a month away for t5 for us and my ec i been spending like crazy trying to get some dofs/keys etc, so half tempted to just save the 10 mil and buy a t5 ship somewhere. especially the way my beacon dofing has been going.
