This clearly shines as the best pratical preorder bonus item by far. While I'm only slightly jealous, I'm more concerned at how much of an edge this thing will give you in pvp. If they happen to be a borg captain, and have a borg bridge officer that's another +10 to power levels at all times.

So a player could be pvping with....

135 weapons
85 shields
55 engines
55 aux

At all times... passively requiring no cool downs and not adding additional buffs from trained skills. My constructive suggestion to balance the RMC would be to lower the passive bonus to +10, lower the active bonus cooldown to 1 minute and 30 seconds so you can use it more often.

What say you?
First off it only lasts for 6 seconds and there is no passive buff, it has a ten min cool down and you cant exceed 125 to any power setting.

This thread is full of idiots who only read the original post which is ironic because most idiots on these forums never read the original post. If any of you had a clue by reading down 6 or 7 posts from the OP, it's been established the public who does not own one of these items is misled by it's printed stats in chat because of a bug. This game is one buggy mess, and these threads are a direct result of it. If Cryptic would have waited to release a finished game instead of continuing beta, players would be less confused and/or discouraged..

Again just for you: No passive stats, only active.

If you've seen it with your own eyes, why haven't you really tested it? If you had, you'd know it's a faulty description.

Stow your whine and go play some more. Folks always come running here and complainin' before even testing and seeing anything in action....

This thread was made by an idiot that for some reason doesn't realise he can edit his original post to reflect that he realises he was mistaken/ "mislead by a bug". If had any clue on how forums work, he would have edited his post as soon as he learned his mistake so that his whiny self importance could be replaced with humble understanding- and then he wouldn't be bothered with the "idiots", as he calls them, who all come in based off his inflammatory topic, read his inflammatory original post, and then proceed to correct him.

I doubt they will change pre-orders.

Yes, ambiguous and flat out wrong descriptions are rather common I'm afraid.

Would also say...let it be like it is for now. Atleast the 15 minutes cooldown is long enough and make it impractical for pvp. What fight would go past 15 mintues to be able to use it again. Maybe there are far better items in the end where this thing wouldn't be used any more.
