Areh the warp cores on this screenshot all that are available? My Aventine build pretty much depends on a [W->A] core now, and grinding up to elite all by myself is not an option. Also a shame that they don't give speeds past warp 10, that would have made a bunch of endgame sets more worthwhile.

I only see one A->to Any. This is nice to have when you are in a science vessel. Aux to weapons is nice but how about some aux to shields. Be good for some shield tanking. Also don't forget there are elite versions of warp cores also. Might have better luck and bigger selections.

I'm not looking for aux to anything, I'm looking for weapons to aux. My Aventine runs with full weapons power, gets the synergy bonus to Aux and adds that again to damage with the T4 Tholian rep ability. It also gives pretty decent TSS, HE, FBP and Heavy Graviton Beam, and as I said: Solo grinding to elite is not an option. Even though I've seen a screenshot of at least on that has [W->A]

Ah, so you have the upgrade project already running. I hope the guy who made the screenshot just missed it.

No W -> A then no fleet cores for me. It's that simple.

I too run weapon power + aux for the tholian t4 rep bonus. It has the added bonus of improving my healing. As a hybrid tank, this works wonders.

I think its clear, that they tried to aim to balance, that now everyone uses full weapon power. they designed the game with many flaws, and the new store options, are pretty much trying to be fixes for it.
useless sci consoles? here, have some bonus negative threat
useless engi consoles? here have some defense bonus
noone uses anything but weapon power at max? here have some warp cores benefiting from not weapon power

it wouldabeen more straight forward to just fix the balance in its core, but atleast they are trying, right?!

I think I just realized something.... Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't unlocking the first tier of a development track of the mine pretty useless because there is no interior with a shop until you spend the thousands of marks and hundreds of thousands of dilithium to upgrade the whole mine?

altho I am fairly confident, that there will be an even better option with another reputation along the way, that will grant a probably way stronger-higher bonus than the w->a would with the aux nukara rep bonus, and then if we asked for w->a, we would not get it anyway
I doubt this was done for balance. There are two elite fleet warp cores with [W->A] and warp cores on the Exchange with [W->A]. If the devs thought [W->A] was too strong, then there wouldn't be other warp cores with [W->A]. I think they just chose the modifiers arbitrarily, just as they did with the traits for the embassy boffs. See the following posts on how the traits for the embassy boffs were chosen:

I think they should just create an interface that allows us to specify which modifiers we want.
