What SHOULD I buy pre-S7
 
Have been working on a PvP only toon for a couple months now and I got it just about right- until this S7 monkey wrench- I'm TAC, fly a energy ONLY Raptor, got 4 Lethean bridge crew and eat normal STF's for snacks with AEGIS set and white mk 11 gear.

Since I won't be playing this Romulan mark reputation game I ask for suggestions to cash out my accumulated STF drops: 63 EDC, 15 rare salvage, 2 common shield tech, 2 common deflector tech, 1 mk10 requisition, and 1 mk 11 requisition. I won't be needing borg ship weapons as I'm planning on fleet weapons once I figure out how to roll my 5000 zen into a fleet ship and not get ***** by the lack of discount for KDF fleet ship ugrade.

So lets hear some suggestions, time is ticking.

A tad bit off topic, but I advice you get all sets in game because rumors that every set (well almost every) is getting a makeover...

If you don't need weapons ....

common tech , trade for dilithium
Look into buying the doffs with the salvage
Pick up a piece of Mk XI KHG or Omega gear you need with 40 EDC
Dont know what I'd do with the requisitions.

Cant buy set items with edc's/salvage anymore- that was nerfed with S6 IIRC. And there aren't any DOFF's I can use since I don't need torp doffs and don't do ground with this toon.

you can "chokes a bit* turn it all into a liquid asset like dilithium, and then possibly zen if you need it.

this is a good move when looking at future big changes in a marketplace. liquidate some assets, and hold down the fort for a bit until you figure out what will be what.

have fun kill bad guys

Sure you can buy set items with EDC up to MK XI, you never could buy them with rare/prototype salvage though. And it's not that DOFFs are only there for active roster powers, are they?

But yeah, just 1 word: Dilithium.

Hmm, I'll look again as wiki still shows the 'old' way of EDC conversion to requisition, but I havent found it last couple months in game.

i'm playing it safe and spending everything before season 7. i have all the sets i need...for now anyway, so dilithium is probably what i will be buying and would recommend buying.

this is not a smart move. unless you plan on not playing the game anymore.
