Legacy of Romulus Expansion To Trigger Rush for Star Trek Online Credits
Perfect World has unveiled the first-ever expansion for Star Trek Online,
Legacy of Romulus,
set to arrive on May 21. The new expansion promises to set off a mad dash for Credits as fans spend on leveling up new Romulan
and Reman characters to 50, stock up on commodities, and outfit their new Romulan Warbirds with equipment.
New Romulan and Reman characters
As hinted in its title, the Legacy of Romulus expansion unlocks the Romulan and Reman playable races complete with fresh missions that flesh out their
intriguing storylines. This bumps up the total number of playable races to 24.
Veterans will be rushing to roll new characters from scratch, especially because of the additional mission content that can only be experienced
through the new playable races. As fans know, the path to max level is a long and expensive one, so those who want to speed their progress along may
purchase stacks of Star Trek Online Credits.
New players will also be tempted to purchase Star Trek Online Credits to help them hit the ground running. Beginners can skip hours of grinding for
enough Credits to spend on commodities, leveling gear, and other starter essentials. Instead, they can focus on the journey at hand and savor the
compelling plots that are trademark to the game.
Returning players who have taken a long hiatus from Star Trek Online will also be coming back in droves to test out the new playable races and
content. Some of these returning players could fill their wallets with Credits in order to quickly catch up to their friends and the rest of the sever
Deck out those Romulan Warbirds
The new expansion also introduces a powerful new class of starships—the mighty Warbird Class, available for Romulan captains. With these new
starships comes the need for new starship equipment, which can add up to a lot of Credits. Captains who want to deck out their Warbirds as fast as
possible will likely look to score some fast Credits from sellers, before taking their fully kitted out starships on dangerous endgame challenges and
new Tholian Reputation runs.
Legacy of Romulus is free
The Legacy of Romulus expansion has been confirmed to be free to download, which only makes Star Trek Online Credits more appealing as purchase come
launch day. Some of the usual barriers for purchasing virtual currency is that the player has already paid for the game and does not have the budget
to spare on Credits that can otherwise be earned anyway through normal play. With the new expansion costing nothing, players will have more financial
freedom to splurge on Credits and all the convenience the virtual currency affords.
