I finally completed working on Reputation a few days ago.
While I was working on it, I kept an eye on my expertise, hoping I wouldn't run out before hitting Tier5 on all 3.
After reaching T5, I went through the unlocks and started searching for the items I wished to acquire.
Two items and no more expertise!
I managed to get another one by doing some random enemy encounters and a little doffing, but the rate of return by acquisition is too slow.
And then I started to wonder, why I don't have any expertise?
Did I do something wrong?
My main characters have over around 4million expertise each.
No idea where they got it, but I have a feeling that maxing every single field of Doffing and taking two or 3 of those fields to the cap (that's greater then maxing) had something to do with it.
But I won't be doing that again, it's not very interesting after you've done it for over a year solid.
And now I'm understandly concerned about the upcoming Voth Reputation.
Without expertise, I won't be able to do the Reputation!
Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to get massive amounts of expertise?
Preferably something simple that doesn't involve hours of gameplay.
And I'd prefer to avoid mission replay, since I've really gotten tired of doing the same old story missions over and over again.
I've done that so much already for various reasons, I don't do missions now unless I get a limited time reward or something else special to justify the effort.
Borg red alerts, foundry ec grind missions (limited amount though), mirror event, load up doff projects, PVP repeatables, No win scenario. I can go on but these are some of the best. Don't forget to use the Q XP boost as well. It boosts the expertise.
(If he's still up that is)
Keep on doing missions. All skill points at level 50 gets converted to Expertise and you can get about 10,000 expertise for doing one mission. The Dyson Reputation is not a concern as far as expertise goes since you get 2500 reputation by doing just the 1 Commendation project. No expertise is necessary unless you plan to do the 150 reputation per hour project.
Your mains were probably around before expertise came into play, as such all your excess skill points were converted to expertise as any skill points above cap are automatically converted to extra expertise
A team of fleetmates and I grabbed Q boosts and ran Mirror Incursion together at level 50. Over and over and over for an hour. We were going so fast I could only use Tactical Fleet every other run. A couple of Scimitars, a couple of cruisers, you can kill the Stadi in ten seconds flat.
I got close to half a million expertise in an hour doing that, and you can too. Just need a few friends who also need exp.
