Equiping your ship, with better equipment
 
Hi all,

So, I am ranking up nicely, although, focusing mostly on PVP and just trying to make credits. I actually enjyo PVPing a lot, and so, my Klingon has become my primary. It only stinks when the PuG can't coordinate attacks, otherwise, I like it a lot.

Anyways, thats another topic. So, I got my T2 BoP the other night and well, I am saving credits to equip it better - it seems credits are coming nicely by strictly PVPing. In any event, I need some advice.

I can buy from the exchange or I can buy from vendors. Which is the best to purchase from? I won't be flying to the T2 BoP after I get my T3, but I want it to have the best possible equipment. I was at the exchange and was looking at the type III gear and it's a bit pricey, but I'm sure worth it.

any help would be great.

dont use energy credits, just do pvp and khales and youll have enough medals very fast to buy far better stuff then what you can buy with credits, obviusly start with getting new weps:)

Well, how do I use my Medals? I have a ton of them and haven't used them at all.

Thanks for the reply!

Ah perfect, I'll do that then! I'll hit up that when I get home from work. I really need to get better equipment, especially weapons.

Yup, that part I knew, lol. I am sure I have a lot - I have been PVPing for 2-4 straight each night on my Klingon.

Thanks again!

It looks like the Klingons and Federation exchanges are linked. So, yes, check the exchange to see if there's something better on sale than you can get with the Exploration Badges or PvP Medals. Plus there are some consoles that will help, depending on your BOffs' powers, that are not sold at the Exploration or PvP vendors. for those consoles you'll have to use the exchange or get lucky with PvE loot.

Ah great, thanks! I appreciate it.

I guess that's what credits will be used for then, buying items not offered by the bagdes and extra ships. Cheers!
