Seems like it's diminishing returns.

You have to decide what you want exactly.

Ignoring EDC for a sec

If you have more than about 20 total of any of the other stuff, definitely cash in until you're down to 20 or less. There seems to be very very poor benefit from having 25 more rare salvage and 25 more prototype salvage for example.

I think actually their statement is sort of correct. Basically you can't reasonably need more than a full set of gear. So if you have enough for a full set of gear or two you get 3000/13/4000, if you have more than that, you still get 3000/13/4000 (or a very poor conversion rate to get better than that), but if you can find a sweetspot of 2500/11/3000 that's probably good for some people.

Keeping ~5 non EDC items in your inventory definitely seems worth it. 10-15, maybe. More than 30 not. So unless we hear about them re-evaluating things, I would expect to cash out down to 15-20 items at most. Which as they point out, is not, in the present system, going to get you any meaningfully better gear than 1000 items - so it's just dilithium. And if you're a serious STF'er you'll cap dilithium daily most of the time anyway.
