Thanks for that! VERY handy.
Looks like EDCs are the favoured item in conversion.
350 EDC alone gets a good chunk (like 80%) of me turning in around 500+ edc, 100 proto salvage, 40 rare salvage and 20 proto techs. (off the top of my head gets me about 4500 omega, 15BNP, 26k dil) I'll post my exact conversion inputs and outputs later when I can get back in game.

There's a conversion tool? Where can I access it?

602 EDCs
9 Prototype tech
10 Rare tech


gets converted to

4000 Omega Marks, 18 BNP and 16k dil.

Seems like salvages are best to sell off for dil.

Looks like they lifted the 15 BNP hard limit.

So twice of 7 is...8? That's what my boxes are telling me.

How does that make any sense?

Putting my numbers in the converter does not reflect what I have on Tribble..

Ok so explain this one to me. I have so much STF loot b/c I have been trying since season 5 to get the damn proto PSG. I do 2 runs tonight of IGE and I get it both times. This is after complaining on here about the drop rate and submitting a bug report too lol. I think the drop rates were tweaked in this last patch.

I must agree, I got TWO prototype tech today, maybe it's just pure luck, but I got an Engine for one toon, and a Shield for another.

Yesterday during KA day, I got a Prototype Armor for a toon who needed it, and one or two Rare armor techs, also for toons that needed it.

The drop rates weren't tweaked. I've been trying my best to get a couple of my fleetmates their final set pieces before this conversion. Though congratulations on your good fortune.

OMG.

Before

BNP 15

After the supposed twice as many!

BNP 22

So I only got 7 extra BNP. That is only 1.46 times the amount before, and is no way near twice, it is in fact closer to 1 than 2. What a rip off. You would have thought that with the 15th coming they would be bending over backwards to keep players happy, even sweetening the pot. Not really a good business strategy you currently have Cryptic, is it!

Well sod this. There is nothing in Season 7 but grind, and the new content is just grind missions. What is the point of playing grind missions if 6 months latter you take the stuff away. I've been playing STO for nearly 3 years and had hoped to play until its end. Well when season 7 hits I will be spending most of my time and all my spare money in a Galaxy Far Far Away.
