# 1 omega and romulan marks
12-27-2012, 08:14 AM
ok why is it that when doing the stf's that omega marks you get more than 50-100 depending how the optional falls but when doing the romulan marks you only get 10 or less unless you get the extra marks event. would it be plausible to make it so that you get at least 30 or more romulan marks per mission, or keep the marks the same for the easy missions and then make a harder mission like the borg stf's

The space dailies give around 60 for romulan marks, plus you have a whole zone with dailies and with like 3-4 instances with each of their own daily mission. So you pretty much just have to work for it. Although I do agree, a higher payout on the fleet action romulan mark instances would be nice and make them worth doing.

ok why is it that when doing the defera ground missions you only get 5 omega marks but when doing the romulan marks you get 10-15 plus more for radiation scanning plus 400 for breeding rabbits plus 100-200 more per day for winter rabbits.






(seriously, though - anyone not doing the Winter Epohh thing right now is just missing out. I've got two characters that have never stepped foot in Tau Dewa sector, who have over 2-3k marks between them. For about 10min of effort a day - do a pvp race once in awhile to get some epohh tags + assign some doffs. Of course, it depends on how good you are at the pvp race / if you can get a race without many competitors. But there's lots of winter zones + 4 races per hour, so....)

So where do you turn them in?
I have only just started and have a few tags and 1 epohh so far, how do you turn that into marks?

Raise the epohh's until elder level, at the contact in the winter wonderland for the ones you get there. they're all doff missions, and assign some good science doffs to them for a crit. Then when you have raised them all the way, go to New Romulus at the epohh fields and talk to the contact there, Toreth. She will take them and give you 400 marks per elder Epohh. The snow ones are just quicker to get since they only take five days to get from research to elder if you are good at the races. If you go to New Romulus to do the Epohh mission there, even with a group, you need to do the mission for about 4 or 5 days I think until you can start raising an epohh.

They need a Romulan mark even that is comparable to STF difficulty and length of time. It should have normal and elite versions and reward same marks and dilithium as a STF does.

The Winter epohhs, you just grind up in the Latinum conversion console.
100 marks for an Elder, 200 marks for a fancy Elder (one that got critted at some point in raising it).

It doesnt matter...they should have a repeatable ELITE ROMULAN STF that awards Romulan Marks instead of Omega...

Keep the ELITE Borg STF's we have now, but come up with a couple new space ELITE Romulan STF style of instances which awards comparable romulan marks (50-100) like the elite borg stf's.

You can sit there for 10 hours and farm well over 1000 omega marks in a day

WE need the same thing for romulan marks...not everyone wants to goto this boring new romulas crap and do the stupid dailies and repeat nebula rescue over and over again for 18 marks max...not to mention pray that we get lucky and get into the tholian red alert that is still broke

As it is right now, we can obtain omega marks much quicker and a much larger amount in a day than we can romulan marks..please even this out

I have done all the dailies on new romulas once after i hit tier 5 rep, i have done all the space dailies and the red alert and still can not come close in mark gain like i can omega.

I dont want to goto new romulas anymore, i dont want to do those dailies. I really hope they come up with an elite Romulan group instance that is comparable to elite stf's

Depends on playstyle. Some people are rolling in Omega Marks. Some are rolling in Romulan Marks. Although I will mention this about Tier 5 in Romulan. You don't need as much Romulan Marks as you need Omega Marks. There is the Experimental Plasma Beam Array which costs 500 Romulan Marks, the ultra-rare scorpion fighters which costs 240 Romulan Marks, various consumable items which costs 10 Romulan Marks each, then the 2 space sets that are almost identical and some would say worthless. You get 750 Romulan Marks for finishing the last cutscene mission. So trading in an epohh elder and that mission reward would give people enough Romulan Marks for the useful Tier 5 equipment assuming you want 2 ultra-rare scorpion fighters. So we really don't need a Romulan STF. What we do need is easier ways to get Omega Marks since not everyone wants to do tons of elite STFs.
