# 1 Saw that coming...

knew the second they wanted to bank some cash Cryptic would re-release probably one of their most over powered ships. -.- Was kinda a fan of so few people having the JHAS, havent even logged in since the patch and I can see the spam of Dilith being traded for Zen and Doff packs being opened.

Seriously the JHAS is basically a BoP, with 10k+ more hull, a extra rear weap, and 5 tact consoloe slots -minus battle cloak (Can they even get base cloak? I know the dominion has cloak via canon but never bothered getting a Dom ship in game)

Oh well guess well be seeing a lot more in STFs now, I dont pvp in general on sto but Id guess theyll be getting spammed there too.

They do these ships things 3-4 times a year. If you knew it was coming it's only because in the back of your mind you remember how long its been since the last time they did it.

Plus there's been a bunch of talk about them on the forum over the last couple of months. People complaining about none of them being on the exchange because they're too expensive; and people demanding access to the pets for the dreads.

It seems like the right time to get more into circulation; and maybe bring some of the prices down on the exchange.

Hindsight tells me they're probably going to introduce a new DOFF pack soon and retire the Romulan Survivor pack.

That's what they've done before, anyway.

Wonder what theme they'll go with for the next set?

Sounds like you have not been online in a while.

While it is indeed a vicious little ship, it no longer commands awe and respect. Cannons have become 'passe' as the race to better dps has gone beam array, APB, FAW and cruisers.

That, and a little Romulan number called the Scimitar

In case you've missed it - dps is being clocked at 50K+ with averages being over 20K+.

I dunno, if they were trying to generate significant cash, I think they would have put the possibility of getting one in something that cost a lot more than the doff pack.

Seems to me a combination of two things...acknowledging that apparently many people want this ship, and that it was about time for another ship promotion. Why not combine the two, and make some folks happy.


What is it...$3 for a Survivor of Romulus pack?

Voth Defector Duty Officer Pack!!!

It might be helpful to picture Picard as Cryptic and the Borg as PWE.

Interesting, how often by buying that pack you mightt get that JHAS..

I recently did 14k DPS with a Gal-X using mk x green cannons and turrets on a new character - so not really impressive seeing 20k now from someone with all the bells and whistles unlocked, though I wouldn't expect a bug to be much higher with the limitations pure escorts have.

Which one will you be?
