I'm on my 125th run of CGE now trying to get the prototype borg weapon tech, and have it down to a fine art now. Throughout my runs I've seen other players get their proto tech drops; some already with 2 full sets of Mk XII STF gear for whom the proto tech is basically usedless or BOFF fodder; others without so much as a MACO/Omega weapon, who have joined an elite run to be carried through (who didn't remodulate once the entire instance either) - yet they get their tech (the latter is most galling). What do I have to do to 'earn' a proto tech weapon already?
Why can't I trade my accumulated rare borg tech all for a proto tech? All my crew are already in STF Mk XI gear now (for which they should be able to display the uniform ). I have no use for them. I don't want to trade them for dilithium because what if, one day, they become redeemable for proto tech?I mean at this rate, I still won't have acquired the proto weapon and will finally have a use for them by then.
This is a pretty long standing complaint about STFs. So far I've equipped an Escort, Cruiser, and Shuttle with XII weapons from Proto tech drops. Now I'm just sitting on them to see what happens with S6.
I'd really like for the tech drops to be account-wide loot, as so many others have requested. This way, even if we are grinding for the proto tech, at least we can send off the rare tech to our other toons.
