Specials Introduction

Specials Items greatly affects what a ship does and how it behaves in combat. Specials allow players to take on specific combat roles, such as repairing, tanking, running interference, or dealing even more damage.

Advanced Specials provide large stat bonuses to specific stats, as well as providing large EquipPoints bonuses.

All specials are ship-specific and can be upgraded with Engineering.

Special Items can only be bought from other players on the Auction House or claimed using Reward Points.

Special stats and abilities can be viewed using the Web Tools site.
