  • Druk wanting a way for some players to troll other players. Go figure.
  • 30 toons (that only have to be level 11) at 40 seconds each is 60k refined dil a day for 20 mins of time. Convert to zen. Buy promo packs. Sell promo packs, buy contraband and have lots of EC left over. None of that takes much time either. Some people have explained this over and over and over again and yet the majority…
  • It doesn't start cause that's no longer the next mission. The next mission is "With Friends Like These". Yeah, it's sort of messed up now as it doesn't trigger and so you have to start it manually. As for the transporter, that doesn't actually unlock until you complete Looming Shadows. Yep, messed up lol.…
  • Let me set you straight. Investigative Reports was removed because, no matter how many times they tried, Cryptic could never fix it in a way that the botters couldn't figure out a new way to exploit it and make boatloads of Dil. Of course they give some alternate "official" reason, no company is going to talk openly about…
  • You really need a more DPS oriented, content specific setup when doing Elites. But for any other stuff, the recommendations given in the thread will work. Work on your Spec trees (Commando etc) for ground. Make sure you've set your skills up for the typical recommended ground setup…
  • As you said, it's pretty subjective although for those that do advanced/elite content there are some standard setups. Of course that also differs depending on which content they're going to run. I don't really run that sort of content so tend to just gear up all my toons the same way. I use the Omega set upgraded to Mk XIV…
  • It's extremely humorous that Druk would start this thread.
  • I tend to just build all my alts pretty much the same way and so they end up with 2 Conn DOFFs to reduce TT cooldown so I can just run 1, I run 1 warp core Eng and 2-3 Damage Control Engs. But of course it also comes down to things like the ship. If run an escort type ship I might run 2 TTs and so use those 2 DOFFs for…
  • I have no idea what the OP is talking about. In game emails? or ones to your login email?? Cause that's a much different thing.
  • Reading your post, it's clear you don't know how these areas work and how to maximize your efforts. As just one very simple example, you can get 2 elite Iconian marks per day on Kobali Prime.
  • You want the devs to fix it? Then stop playing it. I mean how hard is it to grasp that. I refuse to go back until they fix it. You want the marks? Then just be patient and get them all during the summer event.
  • As of right now it's best to sit and wait for awhile with all the "nerfs" currently happening. No one is going to be able to answer the question for several weeks at least I would think. At the end of the day though, unless you're someone who wants to be one of the 1% in terms of DPS, just going with crafted with whatever…
  • Interesting results of a FBP build going from 214k to around 80k. Looks like they went way overboard on the embassy console nerf. Given the other results he was highlighting I was expecting them to end up at 10% of previous but it's more like 2%. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qgnMfk323D4
  • Everyone has been expecting the plasma consoles to be nerfed for a long time as everyone knew they were OP. So no need for anyone to discuss it lol. And yeah. Back when I got mine I spent a bunch of money on one of the larger Zen packages so I could get the Vandal and then use the rest for other stuff. I'm not all that…
  • You left off the option that there will be no change from how things are now and so I won't vote. During the winter event I was running a lot of Tholian and Borg red alerts and was shocked at how many times they failed.
  • I've got enough tokens that I'm not concerned about it but I do think paying for a respec is an archaic game design method and should be removed/changed. Frankly, I'd revamp everything to do with skills/traits/specs to tie them to load outs. You should be able to setup ground loadouts of skills/traits/specs and the same…
  • OP: as you're new to the game and no where near really working on Spec trees etc, you need to keep your distance from the enemy especially when you see you're close to killing them off. If you're too close you hit evasive maneuvers. You can also go down south in the Beta Quadrant to the Alhena system and do the "Defense…
  • That's odd because pretty much everyone in any other thread about it agrees that it happened when AoY was released which was when the Temporal spec was released. You're the only person I've ever seen that seems to think it happened before that. Also, are you talking about the same issue? i.e. Are you talking about one…
  • Check if it's the boffs you're given or ones you've purchased. For me, it's all the original type ones I've been given. All purchased ones run fine.
  • A tad "irritated" that Plasmonic Leech has been nerfed given I spent real money to purchase the Vandal. Frankly I don't see how it was any problem given people have been using it for years, far before the current run away DPS issue that's occurred within the last year or so with all the new stuff that's come out. But…
  • Grinding out dil/marks etc doesn't require skill, just the ability to do it as fast and as easy as possible. Building a DPS machine and learning to fly it really well so you do fantastic in ISA is about skill. There are different aspects to the game and given how much time one has to sink into grinding in order to get…
  • You should ONLY be crafting Mk II weapons once you have your school up to or very close to level 15 so you get 3 mods on them. Otherwise you're wasting your resources. And yes, the mods you get are random. If you're needing some "decent" weapons before you get to that point, there's plenty of missions where you can get ok…
  • You don't farm Lobi. You "farm" dil. Convert to Zen. Buy promo packs [200 zen when you buy in a 4 pack and wait for the sale that typically occurs when the new promos come out] (you could buy keys but you end up getting less EC/dil that route). Sell for EC. Then either buy the ship outright or keys and open lockboxes. 1…
  • I suspect it's in response to your long, long history of posting flaming troll posts berating and name calling anyone and everyone.
  • Huh? I've only 3-4 ships that have pets and they're always right in the battle so don't know what you're talking about.
  • @Op. The exchange works like pretty every other exchange out there in the world. i.e. real money exchanges, like wallstreet. So the issue isn't how it's presented but that you're simply not familiar with it. Think of it as a learning experience as it will show you how things work in the "real" world.
  • It's always fun watching people jump to all sorts of conclusions before something is even out and can be used/tested.
  • I'm just happy they won't blow up from warp core breaches all the time now.
  • Played Midnight the other day on my AoY toon and 3 of my BOFFs (default original ones) got stuck on a platform cause they were so slow. Had to do half the fights with one BOFF (purchased) until they could actually find their way to me.
  • An interesting article about the law and lockboxes. Includes some excerpts from actual legal people. Basically, it's very murky and like all these sorts of things it's just a matter of time before the laws actually catch up to the times and make things clearer one way or another.…
