What's the best way to go about selling Superior Operative/Superior Infiltrator BOffs anyway? Wade through the listings to find the lowest one with it and price competitively?

That's more or less it, really.

Superior starts at Rare. Make sure you have no tooltip delays on, hover over the first exchange entry, and scroll all the way down. After a while you train yourself to spot the word Superior within milliseconds.

Oh god, do we need to have an Exchange 101 thread XD.

But yeah, you just slightly undercut the cheapest one (or if the cheapest one is UBER cheap, then you snap it up and sell it higher).
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
Tired of Wasting EC and Time trying to get Superior Romulan Operative BOffs? Here's a cheap and easy way to get them, with an almost 100% chance of success.

No, we don't. Especially the people who don't understand the value of certain rare doffs. Yes, this last month has been rather hilarious, and it'd be nice for it to continue with the new lock box.

lol

I'm not completely unaware of how to play Exchange. It's just BOffs is never an area I've broken into since trait hunting a little more involved than just learning the name of what you want and searching for it.

At any rate. I'm seriously considering blowing a large amount of ingame currency on a novelty character, and since I'm not especially interested in using the BOffs in question, I figure I'm better off selling them to make my all-"Hirogen" crew a reality.

Because Romulans are not impulsive. Romulan Marks are the easiest kind of mark to get by the prodigious bucketload, far faster than you burn them to advance your rep. Since there's not a whole lot you can buy with it, and by the time you're ready to buy, you'll have bucketloads, there's no real reason to go on a bender and massively attempt to grind them...that would be un-Romulan.

This nails it for me. So beautifully said. A calculated approach! Getting those marks represented such a pleasure compared to the rest of the bunch.

The *few* times the marks actually were in shortage, I just went to a spot on New Romulus with a low population, and plenty of nearby radiation, for that healthy extra dosage. You get good at that mini-game, with just a little inspiration going, and the target in sight.

the most I have ever gotten for rewards as 30... I tend to be around the 800 to 900 mark in points. seldom if ever cross into 1k points.

Easiest way to get SRO BOffs:

Make an alt throwaway tac Romulan/reman. Level it up to level 45. ONLY PICK THE BOFFs WITH SRO AS YOU LEVEL UP. After you get each BOff with SRO, DO NOT USE IT. Leave it in your officer candidate list and instead use faction based BOffs (IE humans, andorians, blah blah blah for feds, Klingons, orions gorn, nausicaan as KDF). After you hit level 45, look through your officer candidates. Each BOff with SRO, MAIL IT TO YOURSELF. Then distribute as needed throughout your main toons. Delete character. Rinse and repeat as many times as needed.

What does this do for you? Yes, you have to spend a week leveling a toon each time, but that week will guarantee you getting BOffs with SRO (they start appearing on the level 25 free BOff, and appear pretty consistently after that), save you the stress of looking for the DOff mission, and also will save you MILLIONS OF EC. As for you guys selling them on the exchange? Sorry. Not really.

As for the Mark thread hijack? Azure Nebula, Mine Enemy, The Vault: Ensnared and Tau Dewa Daily: Sector Patrol for Romulan Marks. And for Nukara marks? Run around on Nukara prime doing stuff. I picked up 300 marks in an hour easily
.
I LOVE IT! Too bad I can't send them to my Fed Alts. But ohwell, this will be great for when I make a Romm alt!
