Alright, so, I'm playing again in a regular fashion after a very sporadic few years. Almost all of my toons are maxed out or nearly so, so I made a new one for fun. I'm working my way through the Romulan storyline right now. Just hit Level 30 after about a month.
I can't continue the storyline.
I need to get into the warehouse on New Romulus.
I can't until I reach Tier 1 in the Romulan Reputation track.
I don't have access yet to Reputations.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, over?
I could simply skip the the mission, but the completist in me kinda just sits and screams at the very idea...
The reputation system got nerfed to prevent "power creep"; it's called an investment in time and money, and I think I should get a little something for my time and money like being able to stomp the TRIBBLE out of a new guy since I've been playing for three years now!
