Honestly, I always found Development to be one of the easiest to max out. Even before the Dyson sphere was added in.

Exploration always has tended to be the one I have troubles getting grinded out.

I maxed exploration doing data samples. My two remaining tier III's are medical and colonial, just because always hated carrying around colonists and completely ignored medical missions that just gave 50 CXP's in favor of higher paying in other career fields.

Trading - also lots of low paying short missions.

Diplomacy - again outside of the ds9 sections there are lots of tiny paying missions that will take either 20 years or 20 hours a day doffing.

Those 3 really need a balance pass.

Some say exploration - but if you have 15 plus good research labs then you can run 5 of the 450 cxp+ 20hr missions every day.

Recruitment is extremely hard to get normally.
I always found recruitment to be one of the easiest to level by far.

Tons of assignments that are rewarding to run and are commonly in my assignments logs reward it: asylum on X, gamma officer exchange, Academy recruitment, Dominion prisoner exchange, Relocate colonists, Supports, the up- and downgrinder, etc...

You can just buy cheap rares on the exchange, grind them into commons and earn both EC and recruitment xp at the same time if you have a few empty doff slots.

I've routine gotten about 24,000 on a crit for the Provide Shore Leave to Dyson blah mission. I'm not sure if it's working as intended or not, but it functioned the same way for both my Fed character, whose commendations are mostly maxxed out and my Romulan, who was sitting at about 80,000 Development experience before the critical and reached tier 4 on that mission alone.

And I've found recruitment and trading to be the 2 that have taken the longest to reach tier 4. Everything else has been tier 4 for quite some time and I'm just now going over 90,000 experience in those 2. I suppose recruitment could be relatively easy, but it requires the player to spend a lot of time engaging in behavior that is outside the norm for running doff missions and gaining doff experience such as doing what is suggested above.

In the case of that assignment, you crit it with 5 purple doffs and you get 100% bonus off the crit and 100% bonus off the "doff quality".

And yes, Hamlet uses so many doffs that throwing a bunch of purples there just keeps hiking up the reward.

Can you tell me which purple doffs ie what skill they have for doing these .

They are all listed here for the Federation side. The Klingon side has a different list.

Be warned in advance though that these missions are either very rare or they do not come up nearly as often as the developers intended because it's been months since I completed the end of the chains on almost all of these star clusters and I think I've seen the Support Colonization Mission that is supposed to unlock when you finish the colonization chain on the cluster twice, once for Delta Volanus and once for another in the Romulan sectors. I've never seen one in the Deep Space Nine sectors or any of the others.
