Hey Captains,

I am very new to the Forums but I have been playing STO for three years now. I have always been happy with the Rare MK XI tactical consoles on all my ships but now, I have everything I could want, and will have Elite weapons in another month.... I have now decided that I want to upgrade to Very Rare MK XII consoles.

I see them for sale all the time on the exchange but I am not paying 32 million for them. Where have you guys better getting yours? Is there a mission you have found that grants thm more than others or are you doing the Doff missions for months at a time?

Thanks

Eisaak

onyl way i know of it based of EXTREME luck.

Get a strange artifact from doff mission

Power the artifact (requires 1 of each 'rare particle trace')

Then use that in a mission that requires 5 engineers with resolve and difficult to match traits, for a mkxii -random- console

The quality of success depends on your luck and doffs used. the console its self, random.

So there is a reason very rare mkxii tactical consoles are pricey

That is what I was afraid of. Thank you for the response.

I will get to work on those.

The odds of getting a console you actually want and use from that are slim to none to be honest, there really is nothing in the game that can be done but spend the money or don't bother.

Sometimes if you are really lucky, a purple Mk12 item will drop as a reward from comming in first place in a Space War. I have three, each on a different character, and I recieved all of them in Kerrat. But remember, the drop is random, and you have to have come in first place, which is not that easy to achive.

It does happen, or at least did. I don't know if it can still happen. I got a purple, MK XII plasma infuser wayyyy back when after an elite infected space STF. Still use it to this day.

Cryptic has to diversify how we get in-game content.
There should be more sources of the Mk XII purple shiny consoles.
I do NOT want to use ARC to play STO

Even with a maxed-out team of engineers on the Fabricate Console mission, the odds of getting the one you want is something like half a percent (and thats assuming all chances are equal, which is debatable). You could do purple 11s or blue 12s much more easily, but at that point it would only be incrementally better than the blue 11s you're already using.

Sorry, but I think that is not entirely correct. I pulled out a purple MK XII Plasma Console, a purple MK XII Antiproton Console and a purple MK XII Neutronium Alloy (which I lost the lot to, cause we were in a Team) from repair cubes (and 1 of them from a Tact Cube iirc). None of them has been a reward for being 1st place in Kerrat. That's how I got the Money for my Temporal Sci Vessel ;-)

Yes, you can get MK 12 from the Tac cubes and sometimes the Repair Hulks, but the drop rate is lower than comming in first place in a Space War. That ALWAYS drops a purple. At that piont it is just a question of what mark value it is (X-XII).
