    BTW... on the time line I did... Time conversions may be off. Did not get any feed back on that, from what I can remember. Good Luck.

    I'm not quite sure of what the hub-bub is about Doffing in Winter. You get at most four Assignments, with KDF getting less the better portion of the time. You don't get nearly any worthwhile numbers of ornaments for those. However, they are especially 'rich' in Dilitium payouts at 125 per. There are very few normal Doff Assignments that pay out more Dilitium.

    You will need to partake in the festivities in Winter if you want to get yourself an acceptable cache of Ornaments. The other thing about Winter is the cheaper prices for the Barterable goods. Doff Training Manuals are the same price for all Tiers and they are one level higher than Summer (Lt., Lt. Commander, and Commander), whereas Summer is Ensign, Lt., and Lt. Commander.

    What you should be complaining about is that Summer has no Doff Assignments.

    There are in fact 11 assignments for both factions. And they give plenty enough ornaments. I haven't grinded the WW activities in years (not since they account unlocked the ships) and still get all the new clothes.

    But of course, that's not strictly a good thing. I would much prefer all the activities be worth doing, in addition to the doffing. Still, the doff assignments are enough reason to at least park all my alts in WW during the event, as opposed to Risa which I pretty much ignore on alts completely.

    My beef with the Summer lolnuts is there's just not much point getting them at all, by any means. The clothes are mostly restricted into uselessness. Like this years baseball clothes, of which only the caps can be used for custom outfits. Still have to pay full price to get them, and they aren't even recolorable. I don't even know if there is any difference between the "home" and "away" versions, much less what it would be. The rash guards, the shorts and all the non-bikini swimsuits are made useless by that ridiculous map-restriction.

    And the equipment is meh, as usual. All you need is a non-disappearing floater to run the ship mission with and maybe a board if you're (still) doing the colony minigames.

    Yeah, doing the Winter doff assignments (on 8+ characters) the last couple years has left me buying anything I wanted, burning dozens of them in the GPL conversion to buy the Club clothes (before Ferengi Admiralty) and selling off extra stacks beyond the 1000-1500 of each I end up keeping until the next year.

    You can get more than 4 doffing assignments, yeah not a ton more it's really random... but the cool down period is short. inside winter event, academy, space dock. for kdf also 1st city. i have stacks of those things... I think there are 6 flavors for winter... can easily get a full stack of each drop type just doing doffing. the drop rate for summer is abysmal.
  • sheldonlcoopersheldonlcooper Member Posts: 3,759 Arc User
    Yeah I pretty much only do the doff assignments for ornaments. I will do some other activities for occasional enjoyment, but the doffs give all I need for the grind.

    About four simultaneously. Not the totality availible. I've got between 750 and 1600 of each type of ornament in the Account Bank and have had so for a few years. Plenty enough to get what I want for each Character this year and replaced that year.

    I think I picked up about 400 Lohlunats as I only did the hunt when I logged the Character in to do the Daily and it was running. I have about 21,000 of those in the Account Bank.

    I'll be honest; the Hunt for Temporal Artifacts is borked up.
    Seriously.
    I do not waste time on it anymore. I just do the Race for the ship and some mingames so I can eventually get a top-shelf floater for the alts doing Risa.

    The binary indicators of "Closer" and "Farther" away is not enough. In the time I invested only 1 of the 3 characters I was trying the new minigame with, even got a single Artifact. Until it is fixed with EITHER Directionality or Distance (non-binary Range), I will not waste my time with it.

    All you really need in the artifact hunt is a map with the dig sites marked on it and the closer/farther. I had no problems when I'd run it over four toons because the dig sites don't change.
    Now a LTS and loving it.

    Can I raise a bird to the next stage just before maintenance happens and will it evolve it afterwards or will it automatically cancel the assignment?

    It'll work. The only thing that goes away are the vendors and activity npcs.

    I thought I would be the only one spending the last night running around Risa every 15 mins hunting for Artifacts....but it seems I am not. I keep running into other players at the scavenger hunt dig sites.

    Good luck everyone still looking!!! We have till maintenance in the morning.
    Gonna go make coffee...I think. LOL!

    Looking for "Chicago Mobs of the Twenties" on one and that "Portable Fusion Generator" on the other.

    So, I haven't played in a while (about 2 years). I come back, see Risa event is going on. I started a little late somebody in my Fleet chat tells me I have plenty of time. However, I have 880 Prize vouchers, and I find out today it is over. I can't find the guy that sells Prize vouchers for Lobi... so, I am just SOL? And just wasted all that time flying in circles around Risa?

    I would guess: In the Summer Event Reputation store?

    I looked again. Nothing there. Can turn Lobi into Favors. ;shrug... oh well.

  • storulesstorules Member Posts: 2,693 Arc User
    The only event I constantly did for a few days before I lost interest in the whole Risa event, was the dance off. The rest of it was just another grind. IMO at least the dancing is more interactive and fun since you see all kinds of weirdos dancing around bear-2.gif​​

    DO NOT DUMP THAT PROJECT!! I believe you can fill it with next year's tokens as long as it is still there!!!

    Someone please verify this for me.

    Yes, you can. I actually ran for two of my family members and they had ships from previous years still slotted, so I filled them all as well.

    Check Lobi Store. They may actually pull that from the Store after the Event is over.

    I hope that guy got the message.

    Thanks for verifying that players can still fill old Event rep projects with the new year's tokens to finish them. And double checking the Lobi store.

    It is kinda odd they don't leave that in the store...since it seems like something people would be inclined to check and purchase after the event is over.

    I'm really glad that they at least let you slot projects and finish them the following year. Last year, I was on a break from STO and missed out on the Vorgon Carrier, this year though I got both ships because I slotted the project on the last day.

    You're welcome. I didn't mind checking and since I had been flying for my family I figured I'd share that I was flying for more than this year's event ship.

    I'm also flying them again in the CC event and my grandson has the console slotted and I have enough time to get both for him using the same captain. I'm just swapping out which one gets the shard.

    The reason I have a handful of alts running the event was, in addition to having multiple accounts, I had unfinished projects for the Luxury Cruiser; on most accounts I dropped the Projects for the Corvette because it was already unlocked on all but one. So each I was trying to complete the old projects for the Luxury Cruiser and the new project for the Dreadnought.

    You're welcome.

    If you had the corvette unlocked, then it should be available for all your toons. Check the event store reclaim tab on the alt who doesn't have it and it should be there if they have an available ship slot.

    I was thorough; all accounts except the last one had the Corvette completed & unlocked for alts. Only the last one needs a char to complete the project to unlock it. So good to go!
