hi all.

i have a question.

how come after over earning 200 borg datachips doing elite space that i can't seem to be rewarded with the elite weapons requisitions?

i have also done over 50 ground elite missions but still can't get the elite ground weapon requisition.

please advise

Each Elite STF has a chance to award a player with 1 type of Prototype Tech that can be traded for certain elite requisition.

If you want the Elite weapon you need to run Cure Ground Elite and hope the Prototype Weapon Tech drops.

Each Elite STF has a chance to drop these as either Rare or Prototype varients:

Cure Space Elite -> Engine Tech
Cure Ground Elite -> Weapon Tech
Infected Space Elite -> Shield Tech
Infected Ground Elite -> PSG Tech
Khitomer Accord Space Elite -> Deflector Tech
Khitomer Accord Ground Elite -> Armor Tech

It's also confirmed that in Season 7 the drops for STFs will be replaced with marks. Every elite STF will award 50-60 marks plus one elite mark. 5 elite marks will buy one piece mk XII STF gear (IE Omega, etc).

As well as the marks in S7 you'll need 36k dilithium to buy one part, that's after you grind your Omega Rep to tier 5 to be able to buy MK XII parts and said grind will be around 80k dilithium total and over 1500 marks.

Only xii right? I hope the others won't require dilithium because I suck at accumulating it.

Currently the only real reason to grind dilithium is to convert to Zen for C-Store stuff, like ships, etc. So S7 is going to make that much harder, unless you already have that Borg gear.

With more things to spend Dilithium on we are more likely to put more real money into the game for them to profit off of or wait for the stipend to trickle in... Right?

ok i have done the cure elite ground 1o times now and it has dropped the Prototype Weapon Tech 3 times but i am getting a bit fed up as it only seems to be the Mk XI version of the veteran and not the elite weapons Mk XII version.

i am a level 50 admiral, whats going on here?
am i missing something?

The drop rates for the proto tech is very, very low. You just have to hope you get lucky as there is no real way to improve your odds of getting it.

I played 289 elite stfs before I got my complete Ground Set 12s, and that was only one set.
