As a supplement to the post I made, I intend to make a video showcasing my route (and its updates - the current version allows for some sneaky sneaky). I will add the video link to this post after it is uploaded.

EDIT: Even with rubber band lag AND a disconnect, I beat the mission with a minute remaining. Here's me on an AVERAGE run. Done better, done worse.

Has anyone tried this using the Subspace Fold capabilities of the new Solanae Overcharged Warp Cores/Singularity Cores?

As a matter of fact, yes. I did my typical 11-minute route (with Borg engine) with a Science Destroyer equipped with primarily the Solanae/Dyson sets (no Borg engine, frequent use of Subspace Fold). Took me about 14 minutes.

(My Fed route starts in Mempa/Pi Canus -> Eta Eridani -> Regulus -> Sirius -> the BU>AT>BU>AT>ZA>BU loop in Cardassian Space -> Deferi -> Eta Eridiani -> Sirus -> Borg -> Undine -> transwarp to Tau Dewa -> Psi Velorum -> Alpha Centauri -> Iota Pavonis. I also have 6 pips in Driver Coil, and did not have the DI/RP buffs.)

Edit: Also did not use the Obelisk Warp Core either.

I WAS going to try it soon - just for the experience - but now I think I'll save myself the frustration.
If the 15 minutes includes the load time as well, that is not just 'harsh' but downright monstrous.
Yup, this mission was already almost impossible with the lag, as lag and long loading makes it taking three times what it should.

I don't have all of the special gear loaded and could never complete this in under 20 minutes even before they added Tau Dewa.

I will run it for partial rewards, but won't even try for completion...

My ships current configuration gives me a sector speed of Warp 17.08. I could easily do much better using Borg Engines and any Warp Core that boosts DC skill, along with Diplomatic Immunity and/or Raiding Party. If your own ship is close to this or better, and you're able to use Quantum Slipstream Drive on occasion, then you should have the speed to complete the Tour well within the 15m time limit, provided you're also taking an efficient route.

For all those Fed player's here is a link for you to read thru.

Also here is a link to a map I made, this is one of the easiest routes to take.

If you have come to the forums, to complain about the AFK penalty, than it is WAI.

I accidentally forgot to switch to my usual race ship and took the mission last night. My route differs from yours, but the result was about the same, a little over 14 minutes to finish. Guess I can do it on my characters that don't have Borg engines again.

Reading all this makes me think i'm doing something terribly wrong. Despite following these routes i cannot complete the run in time.

First off, there is only a small bonus reward for finishing every sector during this daily, so even if you do not finish the entire circuit, you aren't losing much. The trait is unlocked after 9 or 10 sector blocks, and that should be not too much trouble to get ** the trait is "well travelled" and gives a bonus to the CD of your transwarp abilities.

One of the most useful features I use for the tour, when I play it, is the transwarp to the mission "Skirmish", which is only 500 Energy credits, and in the middle of Eta Eridani, and doesn't incur any cooldown penalty. You just have to have the mission active to use the transwarp-to feature.

When I'm on a fed player, I start in Iota Pavonis. I could go down to AC and then regulus/Psi after that.

When I'm on a KDF character, I start on the edge of the right-most sector in Omega Leonis, and travel to the TW gate of Omega Leonis - > pelia -> TW to "Skirmish".

I always TW to Skirmish from the right-side of Pi Canis, rather than flying back. I always TW from Pelia SB to skirmish , also.

If you have a fleet SB with transwarp gate tier 5, you might incorporate that into your tour, but occasionally that can be risky, if you get stuck on a very long load time.


I hope some of this is helpful
