Hi guys, this is my first post in the forum, so forgive me if I'm repeating anything. And hi!
I'm a Rear Admiral Upper Half, & I'm concentrating on upping my DXP at the moment. Looking at the STO Academy walkthrough page, it says for Consul rank you need 400 DXP, & for Envoy you need 720... but when I look on my character's commendation page it says I need 15000 for consul & 50000 for Envoy!
Am I missing something? It just seems ridiculous that I earn 10 DXP for a diplomatic investigation if I need to get 50000 to rank up. And how to I find my actual current DXP level (if it's in hundreds, not thousands...)
That's for the old ranks, before they added the Doff missions. They didn't change the XP given out for the missions so right now just about the best way to grind it is from doing every Dipolomatic doff assignment you can find.
First Contact grants 75, but the Doffs pay way more, and FCs are only available in the upper tiers anyway. I've been having my Doffs grind for me. Lazy idiots... if the captain has to beam down to every single planet he visits for some chore, it better be because the duty officers are too busy to do it for him...
I have found that if you do Doff grinding, just go to every sector and do any diplomatic mission you can until you have no more Doffs, you can get at the very least 1000 DXP. A couple of days ago collected on about 6 Diplomatic missions and collected about 3000 DXP because of how many Rare missions there was to do.
