Star Trek Online Credits for Rush of New Klingon Players
Star Trek Online will finally offer a complete leveling experience for the Klingon Defense Force faction, so expect Credits to fly off the shelves as
swarms of casuals roll new Klingons.
Perfect World Entertainment has confirmed in a developer blog post that the upcoming Legacy of Romulus expansion will release full leveling content for the Klingon faction
covering levels 1 to 50.
Since the expansion is planning to launch a third playable faction, the Romulans, developers thought it only appropriate to fully flesh out the
Klingon progression which has been around for much longer.
Klingons will be able to start the game at level 1 and will have enough playable episodes, missions and events to reach level 50. This is opposed to
the previous set-up where players had to start at a higher level.
The Klingon story has also been buffed with more original content, with some episodes even occurring in completely new locations such as the prison
planet Rura Penthe.
With developers fleshing out the Klingon progression, players who had previously held out in creating a Klingon character will likely give the race a
go now. Casuals tired of the leveling grind will want to stock up on Star Trek Online Credits to finance their leveling gear, companion equipment, and
While critics of Credits still write it off as an inflated currency, it does not change the fact that there are still a lot of nifty things that
players can purchase with Credits at the vendors and at the Exchange.
Freshly rolled Klingons climbing their way up the level ladder will need to stock up on commodities, food, personal equipment, kits, weapons and
starship components. A few of the more expensive Credits purchases will be for special bridge officers. No doubt the new content will also give rise
to rare Klingon-spcecific items that will cost hundreds of millions of Credits.
Fleets also continue to function based on Credits contributions, and Klingon fleets will be no different. Crafting enthusiasts will also be spending
Credits for raw materials to be used for craft leveling.
This is not to say that Credits will be the end-all and be-all for Klingon starters. A fat stack of Credits will ease the grind and make the ride to
the top a breeze, but players will still need to grind Dilithium and consider paying up for some cash shop specials that cannot be bought with
Credits. Two that come immediately to mind are the newest Klingon ships coming out with the Legacy of Romulus expansion, the B'Rotlh Bird-of-Prey
(Tier 1) and the Qaw'Dun Bird-of-Prey (Tier 2), which should make even the staunchest Federation loyalists swoon with envy.
