Indeed it’s that time of year once again. Summer in the Northern Hemisphere on Earth signals the beginning of the Lohlunat Festival on Risa and the chance to get a brand new shiny starship 🙂 In year’s past this summer event has enabled players to earn such amazing ships as the Risian Corvette, Risian Luxury Liner, and Ferengi Nandi. 2016 is no different my friends as those beach combing Risians will be offering a fabulous starship opportunity once again. This year the ship is a Vorgon Xyfius Heavy Escort. This looks like a fun ship and it’s absolutely FREE 😀 For all you newbs, all you have to do is take a character (the same toon each time) to Risa and once per day fly around with a jetpack through three courses. This will take all of 3-5 minutes per day. The vouchers are character bound, so use the same toon each day for this. After 25 days you will have enough vouchers to get the ship. Every toon on your account will get it unlocked as well. This is a T6 escort and it looks pretty cool.
I cannot express enough the importance of spending a few minutes each day so you can win these ships. Not only are they great ships, you may not be able to ever get them again. Once you unlock them however, they are yours for your whole account. Many people bemoan the facts they failed to get an event prize ship and later on wish they had. Don’t be ‘that guy’ 😉 Go get the vouchers and you’ll be soooo happy.
As is typical with these events there are many other activities that will earn a variety of special “currency” that can be used to buy off duty outfits, cool hover boards, better floaters (jetpacks), etc. Be sure to explore the island paradise and partake in all the fun as the event only lasts till July 21st.
In year’s past, Fleet Admiral Sager and his merry band of accomplices have offered up freebie opportunities for readers of this blog. This event will be no exception. Watch my twitter feed (to the right on this blog, or follow @rodsager), I’ll tweet that “The Empress of Orion is on the dance floor”. Ask her to dance and win 1,000,000 energy credits. She’s a gorgeous Orion woman standing a full two meters tall and will be wearing a royal purple Orion ensemble or a little black dress. Don’t piss her off though, she’s a KDF Dahar Master and she can kick your ass 😉
Before I depart for Risa, let’s take a look at the results of some recent polls…
For best destroyer, the Ferengi Nandi and KDF Duvqu’ are in a virtual tie for first each garnering about 25% of the vote. A little weak on the numbers guys, vote already, over a thousand people looked at that article and fewer than 50 voted 😦 Go ahead and vote below.
