Did I read somewhere that the exploration dailies were going to be having dilithium as a reward, thus the change to making them dailies? If so, I have yet to receive any dilithium from this. Currently I have two missions that give me dilithium and that is Drakes satelite mission and the academy chick. Obviously not getting much dilithium since this is the case for me.
The dailies only give out dilithium if they're close to your level bracket... If you do any that aren't close to your level range, then there's no dilithium reward at all.
So Delta Volcanis for Lt all the way up to B'tran for Vice Admiral.
Personally, I think this is ridiculous. Once these missions switch over to giving ore you're going to end up having hard caps on top of hard caps with some added level gating to make earning dilithium ore as difficult as possible. What's the point of having a refinement limit when there's already a finite amount of ore that can be collected per day anyway..?
I'm hoping that they'll both remove the level gating on the reward and allow them to be completable at will like they are currently on Holodeck. If there's a refinement cap already in place, does it really matter if a person earns 8k or 800k ore in a day? The ore is worthless until it gets refined, and there really should be more sources "repeatable" sources of it, like PvP matches. Each PvP match should award a small amount of ore (with the winning side earning a higher amount) so people can play the game how they wish rather than being forced to do activities they don't enjoy to even get close to the refinement cap as it currently stands,
I notice you get refined dilitium on the first go of most the exploration dailies, but after that nothing of use which I think is wrong. Since exploration content scales to your lvl there is no reason to force players to do only one pacific sector as the work is just the same. The only real difference is the craft resources dropped and maybe cheaper relief missions.
Speaking of relief missions I noticed they don't give out items anymore so should provide dilithium ore for the monitary compensation you are forking over and base it off the expense of commodities.
yeah I agree i did the one daily by sol forget name anyways did it once then after just got xp and boff xp no dilithium. This whole Dilithium deal is no good.....
It ruins the fact you need a ton of it constantly to get your new ships since they took away the free token once you got your new rank. and the prices of those ships is outrageous.....
edit: read where we are getting our free tokens back ........except for VA where we have to buy ship from C-store which will be ok............
Oh, and before I go, we plan to re-instate the free starship token at the Lt Commander and Commander rank for all players. We plan to continue the discount token for Silver players at the Captain and Rear Admiral rank, while Gold players will get the free starship at those ranks (if they are a subscriber at the time of rank-up). We do not plan to have any free starship at the Vice Admiral rank.
