Expertise: 1000
Commodity Price: ~6000 EC

Mk XI Ground Set (per piece)
Omega Marks: 375
Dilithium: 5500
Expertise: 32,000
Commodity Price: ~20,000 EC

Mk XII Ground Set (per piece)
Omega Marks: 500
Borg Neural Processors: 10
Dilithium: 9000
Expertise: 64,000
Commodity Price: ~40,000 EC


Mk X Space Set (per piece)
Omega Marks: 500
Dilithium: 15,500
Expertise: 16,000
Commodity Price: ~10,000 EC

Mk XI Space Set (per piece)
Omega Marks: 750
Dilithium: 20,000
Expertise: 48,000
Commodity Price: ~30,000 EC

Mk XII Space Set (per piece)
Omega Marks: 1000
Borg Neural Processors: 10
Dilithium: 34,000
Expertise: 64,000
Commodity Price: ~40,000 EC

** all of the above is subject to change!



From the S7: Dev Blog 17

End game gear prices range depending on the mark quality and exclusivity of the piece. For example, Ground Armor ranges from 6,300 Refined Dilithium up to about 16,800 Dilithium for Mk 12 Premium Set Ground Armor. More critical gear such as Space Impulse Engines can range from 37,900 Refined Dilithium all the way up to about 84,000 Refined Dilithium for a Mk 12 Premium Set Impulse Engine.


So is that the new pricing then?


84,000 dilithium per MK XII "premium" piece, which I would assume refers to the STF sets like MACO / Omega / KHG?

252,000 for 1 set?


That's incredibly steep.

And so PWE (Via cryptic) makes another $20 for everyone who won't grind the dilithium.


Now we see the whole of Season 7's "Its easier to get the omega/maco/honor guard gear" lie.

What is their obsession with 40 hours?

I mean we are going to spend like 2 months just to get to the rep level to unlock the gear then they want us to spend another 2 days to make a single piece of it?

It will be less than two months. but yeah, this "Amazing new content" is little more than grind and wait.

It is quite expensive which sucks but at least you know your getting them instead of doing bunches and bunches of elites hoping and praying.

Actually in the new system getting the stuff I already have would take me a lot longer, not to mention insane costs. Biggest grind I had to do was loitering around KASE for about 2 weeks to get proto deflector. And I have about 10-12 ships worth of borg weapons, mk xii set for every ship I have (on 7 ships) and mk xi ground stuff on all 3 of my characters. Even my Tuffli has mk xi maco set. All this was earned since July, doing no more than 4 STFs 3-4 times a week, at total 0 dilithium cost.

You people don't appreciate putting time and effort in to things? Not prepared to work at stuff? And if you already have the items anyway, why are you worried?

You know what all this reminds me of? Ever seen Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory?

The issue is that this pricing would mean that it costs, effectively, 1600 zen at current Dilithium exchange values to outfit a single character with a single STF space set. (252,000 dilithium).


On top of this, you actually have to work to unlock T5 > then earn more dilithium > to unlock the store > to then shop in it at those prices.




You clearly seemed to have missed it completely in the original post, so I'll post it here for you again:

Borticus gave us very specific prices for MK XII, and those prices were not 84,000 dilithium per peice.


I hope that is clearly visible to you this time around.


The purpose of this thread is to get a decisive answer on whether Borticus' pricing is still in effect or if once again we have been told one thing only to have the pricing become something else upon launch.


That something else, by the way, is a nearly two hundred and fifty percent increase in cost.

You need to understand that for most people, they have jobs and play for fun. There needs to be a balance and not just cater to the elite bunch that complain and whine more than anyone else.

Everything they say is a lie. They should all quit game development and go into politics.
