Doff Recruitment Rare?
 
I spent a lot of time testing the DOff system this weekend. Unfortunately I had to break down and "buy" a few DOff packs to even have enough to do more than 4 or 5 missions at a time.

How frequent are the DOff recruitment missions? I have been searching Sol, ESD and SFA like it is my job and only found a total of 2 or 3 generic Cadre missions since last Thursday (Monday now). I did find 2 other missions that seemed to grant me a single DOff each.

Given that the DOff packs on the C-Store are going to deliver DOffs based on quality now, couldn't the rate of these recruitment missions be increased? As far as I can tell, the recruitment missions really only give White quality officers so far.

Anyone else having trouble "naturally" recruiting crew? It's like my ship smells or something.

I think it randomly offers one Cadre mission per day in each of those zones. Generally they are expecting you to buy them for work for quite a while to build up your DOFF base with earn Cadre missions.

I am going to be adjusting the natural recruitment assignments to operate off of quality, but there won't be any guaranteed quality numbers there. The net effect, however, should be more higher quality duty officers.

Thanks Heretic.

I was curious at about what rate we should be finding those missions. I would say I am lucky if I can find one recruitment mission every 1-2 days. Either I am doing a bad job of looking for them or they are relatively rare. I had sort of expected one to always be available, similar to the reassignment assignment.

Edit: I expected quality of recruited DOffs would be related to Recruitment CXP and rarity of the Recruitment assignment discovered. I am fine with these being White quality heavy at first, but improving over time.

I'm wondering if once someone accepts a mission then it's removed from that sectors avaliable missions. That might explain why the recruit missions are so rare. I'm thinking this because for the last few days I'll go to SFA, Earth-Starbase and orbit arough the starbase and find one or two avaliable missions.

Recruitment assignments are fairly rare, and they have a long cooldown before they will be offered again.

Assignments are not shared with other players, however; someone else taking an assignment should not remove it from the available list of assignments. There have been a number of reports about lack of assignments in the ESD/Sirius sectors, so there may be something going on, however.

What about costs for these?

I received a Medical Achievement: Rigelian Bridge Officer and the cost of that mission is listed as 75 Starfleet Merits...

I'd love to see a DOFF Requisition officer where you can buy run of the mill white doffs on demand any time. They arent special so what would be the big deal?

Realistically militarys, even Starfleet per canon can requisition personnel like that, so i dont see a problem.

Good point--you can buy white quality BOFFs, so why not white quality DOFFs as well?

If you do the following cycle:

Sector, Sol Space, SFA, ESD

The recuritment missions for Doff''s are quite fairly popping up :D

The cycle is also good to get diplomacy, military and medical Doff XP, with the occencional trade mission in between.
