# 1 Couple of Questions
01-30-2010, 05:05 AM
Hi all, I joined the OB late so am getting to grips with the game and really enjoying so far!

I have a couple of questions - firstly what is transwarp and how do I do it (I hear you can travel quickly to specific locations which would be very helpful)

Secondly is to do with picking up items: when you are in an open team can everyone pick up items (dropped by dead enemies) or is it the first person there gets the item? (similar question with regards to scanning anomalies) And related to this, sometimes it seems that an enemy drops an item after being killed which is white rather than yellow and I don't get the option to pick it up.

Does this have something to do with my rank, race or s it something else that I am doing wrong?
Thanks very much

Transwarp teleports you back to Sol. It's in your skill list (click the icon to the right of your skill bar). It's good for selling loot, but it's got a 30-minute cooldown, so you won't be using it often.

Transwarp is an ability. Press 'P' in space and you should find it in the list, and can drag it to your hotbar (I think it is assigned to a bar by default, but I forget which bar).

Triggering it warps you back to Starbase 1 in the Sol system. It has a 30 minute recharge.

There are different loot options for groups, which control how loot is distributed.

I believe these are 'first come, first served'.

White loot objects 'belong' to someone else, either due to the current loot rules for your group or because the 'owner' isn't grouped with you.

Yellow Loot = Your's

White Loot = Somedody else's

Who gets it looks to be based on who did the most damage. If you're teamed with others it will be based on what the Team Leader has looting set to... default is Round Robin I believe.
