Cool answered my question. I bought some random DOFF pack off the C-Store. Let's just say I was less than pleased with the selection I received in exchange for my CPoints.

What exactly is the filter on the request page for? I requested certain traits and abilities before I purchased my pack and I got no where near the DOFF's that I requested via that filter.

Anyone gotten an EMH on holodeck yet? I haven't seen one on holodeck, and it just came up in the doffsjob channel that a couple others haven't yet either.

I was airlocking them in batches on tribble, so I hesitate to just say bad luck. Heretic, any chance you're going forward with the idea you posted a few weeks back?

The filter's on everything that shows a list of doffs - it filters what's shown, not what you get. Useful if you just opened a ton of packs at once and only care about the blues or want to see if you finally got a security officer out of it, but not to influence which ones you get.

I haven't seen any myself yet. I have seen a couple of DOFF missions that needed one though.

Does anyone know how frequent the Recruitment assignments populate at spacedock or the academy? Is there an internal cooldown after you complete one?

Those don't have anything to do with the doffs you get via purchase. That's a search function for matching/anti-matching your already-possessed doffs against the missions you're thinking about running.

The two columns of checkboxes correspond to "Must Have This Trait" and "Must Not Have This Trait." So if you want, for example, doffs that have Eidetic Memory and Logical and which DON'T have Aggressive and Unruly, you'd mark Eidetic Memory and Logical in the first column's boxes, and mark Aggressive and Unruly in the second column's boxes. You can mark as many or as few as you need, but I suggest only starting with one or two at a time, at least until you have a nice big pile of doffs.

It isn't apparent when you have low numbers of doffs to play with, but as you add more, the utility of this feature will become apparent. It really helps in min-maxing your chances of having a particular mission come out successfully or not. It is, IMO, really worth it to score a few Critical Successes as opposed to a pile of just plain Successes. I've picked up two blue pieces of Mk XI gear via CritSuccs so far, and one (relatively) large pile of Dilithium. I've also scored several rare particle traces as well.

Pay close attention to all the percentage chances in the pie graph and consider how much risk/certainty you can live with. Steady successes will inevitably grind you towards rank-up. Occasional CritSuccs will do the same, but with a much more Vegas flavor that some players might enjoy more. As with anything STO, it all comes down to your playing style and how you want to enjoy the game.

Eureka! Just found a new avenue that I hadn't realized. Once you get a DOFF from a given tier by reaching that commendation (i.e. Development 1 gives you a Green) from Ferra's store, the rest of the ones from that list are unlocked for purchase with Dilithium! The low green ones are only 1000, and the costs scale up until purples are 12,000 (for those with capped diplomacy).

Yep. That was a late addition in the testing cycle. On Tribble they weren't unique, so there was a bit of PTW baloney attached to it about people dumping money into the system to get 100 purples. They're unique now, though, but it's still a very nice head start being able to drop some dilithium and get 10 greens, 5 blues and 5 purples right out of the gate. By the time you get 5 or 6 tier 1/2 commendations, you can eliminate white doffs entirely.

EMHs have not been added back to the system. When they are added, the current plan is they will be able to be replicated from your Replicator if you have achieved certain tiers in certain commendation categories.

I hadn't realized the filter was on the Request Duty Officer page, to be honest. I'll see about getting that removed to minimize confusion from people who thought that would determine what they got in a pack.

Heretic, please ensure it remains available in some form. I've found it tremendously useful in assigning doffs to missions. And please thank whoever came up with/developed the filter concept and implemented it.

Heretic - you may also want to disable the Doff assignments that REQUIRE an EMH to start as well - as I've seen plenty of then pop up on Holodeck that I ncan't take as a result of EMH Doffs not being available yet.
