Just did a couple of days levelling the rep system to get to level 1 on Tribble and did the Liberated Borg blue unlock, the 2 blues are 7,500 dilithium each.

At the moment i dont know what the purples will be but im expecting 10k +, just thought i would give you guys a quick heads up for when it goes live

sounds about right. the blue boffs you buy after your 1st free one from the doff system is 6k dil. i think the purples are 10-11k. so it doesn't surprise me in the least =( i'd bet the purple ones are 15k.

Wow, just, wow.



Original price = 20 EDCs (2100 dil)

New price = 7500 dil



A nearly 260% cost increase.



I agree that 15,000 dilithium is the most likely cost for the purples.


Yet another obscene number.

Especially seeing as they aren't actually very good, and free, superior alternatives exist.

Is it obscene? It actually compares quite favorably to the cost of getting a blue from Ferra.

I don't know about anyone else, but I can farm 7500 dil a lot faster than I could have farmed 20 EDC.

Before: 20 non-elite STF or 10 elite STF
Now: ~9.0 non-elite STF* or ~3.5 elite STF*

decrease in number of STFs needed between 55% and 65%!

You're not including the refinement cap in that comparison, nor are you taking into account the fact that if you dedicate 7.5-15k worth of refinement to one of these doffs you are unable to advance anything else that requires dilith in the same timeframe.

So? 40 EDC was a LOT to collect. I never did it... Dil I can get from practically anything now. I don't need to run STFs to get it. Also, you can easily get the dil you need in one day. I'd like to see someone complete 10 STFs in one day..... It's not as easy as hitting your dil refining cap. You'd probably hit your refining cap before you finished all of them.
