Changes needed to New Romulus mini missions.
 
Hi there, finally getting up to tier 4 and 5 respectively on the tier system and seeing the high costs to purchase items. Now i'm not complaining about the costs to purchase the special items like the hyper torpedo or Experimental Plasma beam. But the dil costs for the space and ground weapons once unlocked. 28k per item for mk 12 space weapons, thats 30 elite stf runs without converting omega marks/BNP to dil and 4 days with the 8k cap having to wait to buy one item.

Also grinding out rommie marks. the mini missions on New Romulus have a way to long cool down 20 hrs before being able to replay. The tag eppoh i understand as it can reward 400 marks for the time invested. However i think a more realistic cool down of 4hrs would be better suited to these missions or increase the mark reward from 10 -25.

I can earn in 12 mins playing a elite stf a minimum of 75 omega marks for 1 missions. to earn 70 marks on New Romulus i have to play 7 missions each taking between 5-10 mins.

So essentially cut the cool down or increase the mark reqwards slightly. the New romulus research you get from some of the missions 3 traded in for 5 or 15 marks if it crits but 20 hr cd.

Crazy timers on these esp when you compare the ease and less time it takes to earn omega marks.

Given that you can play the Salt Vampire FA for marks all day long, I think a 10 minute cooldown for New Romulus activities would be more fitting.

I can see a day's cooldown for Epohh tagging and even the space wrapper mission as some of those are VERY easy and it awards 70 in one go.

STFs are a team event, if you play New Romulus with a team it becomes close to an STF in mark rewards.

Get a team of five, everyone go to a zone, share the missions, complete them in 5 mins, and everyone gets at least 50 marks.

I would like to see them have the STF like cooldown (1 hr).
