# 1 Where to farm Romulan Marks?
02-04-2013, 07:45 AM
What is the best/quickest way to acquire them?

Obtaining Omega/Borg marks is incredibly easy. Just by running a single Elite STF, I have enough to queue up the Reputation Missions and have enough left over for a 500 dilithium conversion.

Romulan Marks seems to make me run at least 2 missions from the PvE queue just to get enough to get the daily reputation missions going.

Why would they so freely give out the Borg marks in excess and stifle the romulan marks?

Epohh Farming.

That link above will take you to a guide on farming epohhs.

Long story short, tagging epohhs on New Romulus and then doffing with epohh tags and raising baby epohhs into elder epohhs which can be sold for 400 Rm, takes a few days to complete the process but when you do it's more than enough to sustain you until you sell your next epohh.
Man is a gaming animal. He must always be trying to get the better in something or other.

Read the Epohh Guide...

That seems like a horribly extended chain of events just to get it.
Run mission to get currency 1.
Doff mission to trade currency 1 for currency 2.
Trade currency 2 for pet.
Run missions with pet to age/evolve.
Sell pet/repeat.
Track what stage various efforts are in, so you are eventually doing all of them.


When a simple 15/20 minute STF can get 90 marks, and the process just to get 400 romulan marks can take a month....sad.

5 days max to get enough tags to buy your first pet then another 3 days to evolve the pet into an elder. 8 days total to get 400 Rm then rinse repeat. (Critting the research mission grants 3 research instead of 1, a baby pet costs 5 research so it can be shorter if you're lucky enough to score a crit.)

The tagging mission itself only takes a couple of minutes then turn in and start the doffing process. It really takes no more than 5 minutes of your time to do the mission. You do need to have someone else to get the 31 tags you need but there are always people there to team up with and it can be done with 2 people.

The only thing that makes it time consuming is the trip to New Romulus unless you have a friend who can invite you to their embassy so you just have to walk out the embassy door to New Romulus.

Completing the tau dewa sector patrol daily is what you need. You do very quick missions in systems in that sector block and can do the same system repeatedly to eliminate travel time. Also, a tholian red alert will count for 25% of your progress and rewards 30 RM. So in the time it can take to complete a longer STF you can earn 30+60+15+15=120 RM

That sounds more like what I enjoy. I'm sure others love the epoh game, and I'll give it a short try. But the blow things up route is a bit more enjoyable for my playstyle.

Well the idea with Epohh tagging is that it takes awhile to "prime the pump" so to speak, but once it starts flowing, it flows quickly.

And of course there are no STFs for Romulan Rep, so it's pointless to compare the rates of return in that way.

Apart from Epohh Farming the best/easiest/quickest way to get marks is to run the two daily space missions in Tae Dewa sector, and if you can, turn them in during a Reputation event (bumps the rewards for sector patrol from 60 to 75, for example).

The bottom line is that New Romulus is a much slower and less rewarding rep compared to Omega, and always will be unless/until they put in Borg style STFs for nice rewards.

Yeah cryptic didn't think Rom marks were slow enough to acquire already. So they took her out to help fix it.
