PD -> A List of SC Features, Equipment, and Benefits (2/19/2012 20:59:24)
A List of SC Features, Equipment, and Benefits (Incomplete)
The Purpose of this guide is to provide a full list of the benefits of upgrading your Mechquest account to a Star Captain. This guide will effectively show the reason to upgrade to SC. Keep in mind that everything on this guide can be unlocked for one measly payment of 19.95 USD*. Upgrading your account to Star Captain allows you to play more missions, access more weapons, perform SC-only specials, use more Mechas, take part in planet previews, and much much more. The Idea for this guide was taken from this guide, formerly by Crimzon5.
This guide will be updated and changed periodically as more and more SC Features are added/removed.
*This is the payment amount in United States Dollars. Other Countries will place different values based on the rates of inflation and the numerical order of their bills. For example, 19.95 USD is approximately 15.1159 Euros, the common currency of the European Union.

Examples of SC-only Specials
For the sake of time, space, and effort, I will only post a short example of the plethora of Weapons and Specials that are only avaliable to Star Captains. Below is a short list of some, but not all SC only weapons and specials.
1. House Mechas
Advanced Runehawk: Body unlocks the Mana Shield Special, which diverts some damage to energy instead of taking on the full damage itself.
Advanced Raven: Body unlocks the Smokescreen Special, giving the player an additional 30 Boost, while giving the enemy -50 to their attack bonus.
Advanced WolfBlade: The head unlocks the powerful consuming Rage Special, increasing damage output over time. After level 35, the accuracy reduction goes away.
2. Steampunk Series
Back Arm is a unique SC-only Special which nerfs an enemy stat based on the situation.
3. Web Walker Head
Special Increases the player's immobility resistance by +100, effectively protecting the player from resistible stuns. (Irresistible Stuns will bypass the resistance roll. Keep that in mind when using this weapon)
4. Mecha-roni (Mecharoni job)
FA has a chance of +50 crit.
5. Quickflash series (Quickflash mission)
Unlocks Head weapon that reduces enemy hit by 50 for 4 turns.

7. Frankenmecha (Halloween rare)
