    Dominion Lockbox

    No stats yet, but they detailed what's coming in the new lockbox. Stats are supposed to be released in a couple days.

    Jem’Hadar Heavy Escort Carrier - Lockbox prize, one flight of Jem'Hadar Fighters. Since it's called a heavy escort carrier, I'm expecting something like the armitage with a decent turn rate and dual cannons.

    Jem’Hadar Dreadnought Carrier - Lobi store ship, it's supposed to be "tactically-focused" and will have two hangar bays.

    Both of the above come with a special console that can be fitted to any Jem ship, including the attack ship. They both come with jem fighters in the hangar bays. Also, if you have the attack ship, you can get special fighter version of the attack ship and launch them from the dreadnought carrier. They're also releasing a new material that you'll be able to use on the attack ship, if you already have it.

    Mirror ships - Feds are getting paired ships again, this time the advanced and patrol escorts. It's going to be a skin swap like the rest of the fed mirror ships. The klingons are getting a mirror Vo’quv, which is pretty surprising. I figured this time around it'd be a mirror BoP.

    Cross-Faction consoles: Feds are getting bio-neural, klingons get nadeon detonator.

    Dilithium Mining Claim - A voucher (including a transwarp to) for the dil asteroid mining area, which a special rich vein of dilithium to mine. Worth 2500 - 5000 dilithium, but you gotta mine it. Comes in either a 6 or 10 pack.

    Phased-Polaron weaponry - This shouldn't be a surprise, this is this box's weaponry box prize. Both phase and polaron damage bonuses, modified by polaron bonus items.

    Very Rare Dominion Duty Officers - Several special doffs, each has resolve and they each have a unique active duty power.

    Reinforcements Mini-Pack - has the special ability doffs formerly found in the reinforcement doff back from the c-store.

    Gamma Duty pack - same as in previous boxes.

    Lobi Upgrads - you can upgrade the Jem ground set via the lobi store to MK XII, including new abilities and enhancements and the new upgrade will have new visuals to look more like the armor jem'hadar wear.

    Jem’Hadar Wide-Area Minigun - Lobi item. There's a pic, it looks cool.

    All the jem ground weapons use the nanostream packs, and they're bringing in a couple new nanostream packs to the lobi store. Lobi store is also getting some new pet items.


    All in all, this looks really nice. Two tac-orientated ships. Escort mirrors, a mirror carrier. New doffs, a cool looking mini gun... I'm glad I already have like 50 keys stashed waiting for this.

    Let there be stats! http://sto.perfectworld.com/news/?p=805421

    That shows all the ship stats for the lockbox/lobi.

    The heavy escort looks pretty nice. Turn rate is low for an escort, but it's got two tac boffs and two engineering boffs. It'll pump out a lot of damage and tank a hell of a lot.

    I'm less excited about the dread carrier... It's got cannons, and a 4/3 weapon layout, but a turn rate of 6. That's pretty slow to be using cannons effectively. I'm definitely a bit less excited about this ship with that turn rate.

    The fed mirrors are always skin swaps, but the vo'quv mirror is more engineering based than the standard version. Either way it good cheap ships if you're not sure which way you want to go. It's easy to buy a mirror ship and experiment.

    Some pretty neat stuff there. I was impressed that they added the correct bridge for the Jem'Hadar ships.

    Well, 55 keys later and I have 279 lobi, a pile of crap, and no new ships... :p

    That's not entirely fair, I got like 8 of the very rare duty officer things. Those are usually worth a decent amount. What really sucks is those mining vouchers are bound to character. I don't want to go mine for dil, that's beyond lame.

    Oh, and I have a few of those cross-faction console things. Anyone need one?

    Well the only ship I'd have really cared about getting would've been the heavy escort. But, I really got no ships at all, which is weird cause usually the mirror ships aren't very rare drops. I'm not really fussed though, the mirror ships all end up very cheap on the exchange so it's no big deal.

    I got like 14 gamma doff packs, 7 reinforcement doff packs. I haven't opened the gamma yet, I opened the reinforcement. I got all whites and greens, except I got this purple energy weapon officer that looks like it's really valuable. It gives a bonus to cannon ability cooldowns, cheapest I saw on the exchange was 68 million. I listed it for 65, if that actually sells it'll just about cover the entire stack of keys I used.

    Got like 10 or so phased plasma weapon packs. Like two nice ground guns and a couple decent space guns. Mostly nothing I could use for space. I'd like to collect some heavy cannons and turrets with ACC and DMG bonuses, but didn't get very lucky with that.

    Ended up with like 4 cross-faction consoles, a bunch of those dil mining vouchers (which I'm still annoyed I can't sell the damn things), and several of the very-rare dominion doffs.

    All in all it wasn't a bad run, really. I'll probably open some more later, I want to get the new dominion mini-gun from the lobi store for at least one or two characters, so they'll need to open some boxes to get lobi. I also want to see the stats on the new jem space set, see if it's worth getting the upgrade.

    Here is what they look like right now on my ship. I read on the forum earlier today that they are going to be making a few changes as of next week:

    "With that in mind, here's a list of some of the changes to the Jem'Hadar Space Set that've been made internally, and should appear with next week's update:

    - Lobi Price on Space Set upgrade reduced from 200 to 150, to match with other Set Upgrade item prices.
    - Space Shield has received more Capacity and Regen rate.
    - Space Deflector's Stealth-related bonuses have been doubled.
    - Space Engine's Weapon Power bonus has been doubled (just the static buff, not the Efficient part)
    - Dominion Synergy (2pc Bonus) has had its bonuses increased by 50%.
    - Antiproton Sweep will now disable Cloaks for longer (12sec, vs 10sec), drain more Shields per use (approx 20% increase), and recharges faster (90sec vs 120sec)."

    Thanks for posting. They definitely don't look worth the price as is, once the changes come in it's a bit better. I was really hoping they'd be closer to like STF or fleet gear, though.

    So I decided I wanted the new mini-gun on a couple characters, cause it looks pretty awesome. Unfortunately, neither was the character who had my pile of lobi crystals. So I grabbed some more keys to open boxes for lobi.

    First character, got more of the same nothing really noteworthy. Did get a mirror escort. Dropped it in the fleet hangar. Got my 50 lobi and picked up my mini-gun. That took like 12 boxes.

    Second character, more of the same for ten boxes. The eleventh box got my lobi total up to 52, and a Jem heavy escort carrier! Woo! Smile I also got like 2 more mirror escorts, which will probably find their way into the fleet hangar when I get them into the possession of an appropriate character.

    For all those keeping track at home, 78 boxes total and I got a jem ship.

    I finally fit out my jem escort carrier.

    I fit it with a quantum torp, 3x XII phased polaron dual heavy cannons in front, 3x XII turrets in back. All guns acc and dmg.

    For consoles I did all polaron damage in tac slots, 2 neutronium, dominion console, and an RCS for engineering, and 2 field gens for sci.

    Flew it on just a couple missions. Turn rate is pretty good with the RCS, damage is nice. I went with eject warp plasma, and it's not bad.

    My only complaint is the fighters, they're useless. Fragile, like no damage, directed energy modulation doesn't seem worthwhile. No way I'd spend dil on the advanced version. Probably going to dump them for runabouts or peregrines.
