We have already confirmed that for the elite slavers, "rare Commodities" are things like shapeshifting lockets
The Elite Jem'Hadar Pets, as well as the Elite Romulan Drone pets are available!
Each hangar costs 45,000 dilithium and 100,000 fleet credits along with a fleet provision.
Our fleet will be selling access to the base to anyone who would like to get the hangar pets. We are asking 20 million ec for one-time access to the base (1 toon) or 40 million ec for one-time account-access (bring all your toons at once). We are doing base map invites, not fleet invites - so please don't leave your fleet.
The procedure to make a purchase:
Make sure your fleet has provisions and you have permission to buy from your fleet store. Also, make sure you have the dilithium and fleet credits needed for whichever pets you want, and have 20/40 million ec for access.
Contact us for a base invite. We will send a map invite to you to the base. Once you arrive, pay the officer at the transporter pad.
After paying, you are free to hang out at the base as long as you like and buy whatever you want as long as you are there. We are keeping track of player handles to allow reinvites if requested.
While at the base, you are welcome to buy any other fleet gear. We will have a t5 fabricator for elite weapons in just a couple days. We will not follow you around or try to keep track of what you buy. So once you leave the transporter pad, there are NO REFUNDS.
You may contact any fleet officer to gain access to the base. My handle in game is @SneyeperFur if you need any help. Other officers to contact include @finious2, @K8K, @waspguy, and @James_Turner.
To buy ships like the elite interceptors, you must have the appropriate ship in your active roster. This works exactly the same way as the dilithium store pets.
Judged on the stats alone I would say these pets will be useful in PvE, but not so much in PvP. Federation Phaser/Tractorbeam/Tetryonplasmacloud - spam just beats everything. The lackluster AI on pets severely hinders them to be worthwile with damage powers alone in PvP. Also thanks to the new EPtE mechanics most ships are so fast these days many of these pets will never catch up to use their cannons/torps anyway.
Seems like the most useful elite pets are the slavers. KDF looks more and more like a pure dilithium grinding machine for Federation alts than an actual faction.
