I think this is more of a testimony to Cryptic as to why the Reputation System is stupid than it is a helpful tool for others.


Just sayin'

Agreed with how ridiculous it is, but compared to other games grinds this is nothing. Maybe one mission a day focused on getting marks for one system (I do the Epohh pretty much every day, but I could see doing a Patrol every other). It doesn't even really feel like a grind, more like a addition to any DOFF mission I do...just without having to hunt around for them.

You can get a boatload of romulan marks from Mine Trap. Though not 150 per run.

Just today, I ended up waiting for nearly 15 mins just to get 1 person to help with tagging. Thankfully, it's possible to get all 30 with only 2 people.
I just do it solo and get 3 tags per day. I'd rather finish and move on than stand around for 15 minutes.

Just so you know. When someone says, "Cigarettes are bad for your health, but they are not as bad as alcohol", we call that an annoying political spin.

I do not care about what other games do for endgame content.

I only care about what "Star Trek: Online" does for endgame content.

Please stop "the political spin".

Please.

Trhrangerxml, thanks for taking the time to collate and post this info. Your list is going to come in real handy. Thanks!

I don't always get to run my missions during their Bonus Hours, and typically run just the basic CE mission... Does this math look correct to you?

1526 Nukara Marks = 39 CEN (during non-bonus hours, at 40 Marks per run)
1526 Omega Marks = 21 ESTF (during non-bonus hours, but w/optional, at 75 Marks per run)

Honestly I wouldn't know about CEN, I don't really run the normal, but the total marks is the total marks needed so if you divide you'd get about about 38, so 38-39 would be a safe bet. As for STFs, I think there is also a chance that you can be given random extra marks on completion, just like BNP that you may find you have all the marks you need earlier.

Cool. Thanks for checking my math.

Yes, you think correctly.

For each Elite STF you get your 60 Marks (+15 for making the Optional), one BNP, and then you get two drops.

The drops roll against a rewards table that offers gear, bonus BNP, and bonus marks. I know BNP are 5 per drop (which is why you'll walk away from a mission with 1, 6, or 11 BNP). I never seem to notice for sure the Mark bonus amount, though.

Ran out of Expertise again, this has to be my least favorite part of the rep system, this shouldn't even be a part of it.
