When the rare particles were put in game, it was said that they wanted to incorporate them into crafting, so people should have been saving them.
I just wish the distribution of rare particles was higher, or at least more even among all the particles. Between all my characters that I had collecting, all of them had high amounts of the same traces, and low amounts of the same ones. Granted 3 characters is a small sample set, but it is an interesting trend that prices on the Exchange seem to mirror.
I agree with you about letting the fleet mates provide their own components, especially now that the rare particle traces are not bound. . . And I wanted to tell you that my fleet mates do not expect me to come up with all the particles, but I was hoping I could do it as a gift for them. . . So my fault there for thinking I could keep up with that sort of demand. . . Ha ha.
I also totally agree with the distribution of the rare particles. . . But it would seem that "Cosmic_One" and "Vario" have had a lot better hunting than we have. Perhaps you should check out where they are farming the rares as I for sure am.
Hey buddy thanks for your helpful and useful reply!
