So after doing some research on the Omega Reputation store costs, I'm pretty irritated:

1 piece of Mk XII set gear costs 500 marks and 10 processors. One of my conversion crates chewed up 3 prototype shield techs (among other things), and only gave 11 processors. That is nowhere near the same buying power I have now. I get that it's a tiered system, but prototype techs need to be converting into somewhere near what it costs to buy a Mk XII set piece, or we are getting ripped off.

This is not too dissimilar from one of my characters.

I can't actually get onto tribble, or holodeck due the current patch issue.

But it looks like this is a fairly bad conversion in that, yes you get a lot of marks - but you lose out on potentially a huge amount of other resources.

Your rare and proto salvage alone would be nearly 140-150,000 dilithium (just eyeballing it).

At this point, now that all the gear and fleet gear, and basically any other endgame gear costs dilithium - the smarter approach will be to cash in all your items now.


3000 marks sounds great, except marks are not nearly as valuable a resource as dilithium and only have 1 sink.

On top of this, you can't actually access those marks until T3 in the rep system.


Unless something suddenly changes, and I'm not holding my breath, I'll be turning in all my items before S7 goes live.

I just did an STF run that gave me 2 Rare Salvage and 2 EDCs and I re-transferred my character and there was no change in DL, Omega Marks, and Neural Processors....

Chronicling the changes as I run STFs here...

725 x 102 (or current exchange rate) DL = 73950 DL <- can you earn that per hour in game?

Can someone tell me. Are the figures above for those who played on the tribble server or is this conversion rate for all of us holo players when S7 goes live?

Assuming the devs don't change the conversion rate, then it is for all holodeck players.
