How to save $5 on your subscription for a month.

If you are wanting the Valkyrie pack, you may want to purchase the "Mac Edition" through the PlayNC store. It's $20, but you get a month of play with the purchase. Details here:

(This is one of those, "I was going to buy the pack anyway...." thought processes. If you weren't, move along.  ;))

Same...

Of course, the Mission Teleporter goes across zones, which is frickin cool. How this isn't going to speed up TFs and possibly adversely affect merit rewards for them is escaping me at the moment, though.

The recharge is 2 hours, so probably not significantly.

Yeah, that's a good point. I keep forgetting about the long recharge. Of course, you technically could use it twice in a row unless it bypasses multi-build auto-recharging.

(I hang out with too many speed TFers.)

Even still, twice in 2 hours is hardly game breaking.

Agreed.

If the forum trolls get their way, it may end up being lessened. I'm not really that worried about it messing with merits too much. I was just trying to not be a dev fanboy like I normally am.  :P

Yeah, even thinking about it more - the dual build thing is almost more annoying than it'd be worth for that anyway.  With the characters that I use a second build for, it's usually for a specific purpose. I'd hate to have to waffle between those on a TF just to "shortcut" the recharge on that.

You'd have to make your builds tailored for that (which I guess for the diehards that's probably doable/appealing), but for the average player I can't imagine it being used much for that purpose.

Yep.

I really am liking the pics I'm seeing of the costume pieces. I have a couple characters that would look cool with those gigantic wings.

if only 1 teammember has the teleporter, i agree
but have a few of these, and it'll save lotsa time !
