Patch 39 – Release Notes

Patch 39 – Release Notes

Commanders,

Introducing the first part of the Rules of Acquisition Arc!

“Rule of Acquisition 18: a Ferengi without profit is no Ferengi at all.”

A pair of Ferengi brothers appear at your station, requesting assistance in dealing with a shady black market network that has been putting more “legitimate” companies out of business. As you begin to follow some tenuous leads, you find yourself reaching dead ends at every turn.

With the network apparently two steps ahead of you at all times, you’re going to need a plan to outsmart them. But will this ominous organization fall into your trap, or are you fighting a battle that may already be lost?

The Rules of Acquisition Arc kicks off with the introduction of the new D’Vor Feesha ship: an upgraded Ferengi D’Vor specially engineered to mine Concentrated Latinum and maximize profits. Three new officers arrive, including the beloved Quark, alongside the new and unique Drydock G that will allow you to command one additional ship. Lastly, a new Prime Node focused on improving station combat.

“You’re playing with fire right now, and pouring gasoline over everyone you talk to.”

The first part of Rules of Acquisition (RoA) includes:

  • New Ship: The D’vor Feesha
  • Twenty new missions
  • Three new officers
  • New Drydock
  • New Station Assault research node
  • New Battle Pass
  • Eight new avatars and four new frames

New Ship: The D’vor Feesha

The D’Vor Feesha is a new and upgraded Ferengi vessel available for players level 35+. Equipped with the latest Dx mining laser, it is capable of efficiently mining the new Concentrated Latinum Resource Nodes! This precious resource can then be refined to acquire Latinum and further upgrade the D’Vor Feesha to maximize profits!

Q: How can I acquire the D’Vor Feesha?

A: Similar to the Franklin-A, you’ll be able to unlock the D’Vor-Feesha by scrapping your D’Vor and earning D’Vor Advanced Data Core. The D’Vor Advanced Data Cores can be converted to blueprints in the Latinum Refinery, through the D’Vor-Feesha Blueprints bundle.

Q: How many D’Vor Advanced Data Core will I gain after scrapping the D’Vor?

A: The amount may vary and depend on the ship’s tier; a maxed out D’Vor will provide the D’Vor Advanced Data Core for a full set of D’Vor-Feesha blueprints! In more details:

  • D’Vor Tier 1 – Tier 5 = 0 D’Vor Advanced Data Cores
  • D’Vor Tier 6 (levels 26 to 30) = 12 D’Vor Advanced Data Cores
  • D’Vor Tier 7 (levels 31 to 35) = 30 D’Vor Advanced Data Cores
  • D’Vor Tier 8 (levels 36 to 40) = 60 D’Vor Advanced Data Cores
  • D’Vor Tier 9 (levels 41 to 45) = 120 D’Vor Advanced Data Cores
