10,000 Dil is not a high cost. A Hangar is ship equipment. Back at launch, which was considered NOT grindy, Ship equipment cost around 50 something marks. That was 10 days of Exploring or PvPing. Weapons were 7 marks, or 1.4 days of Exploring/PvPing.
You're not meant to be able to gather all the necessary materials to fully equip yourself in one day; That's how MMOs work.
10k dil isnt too bad.....the dang 30 doffs needed IS bad....especially when the minimum each one goes for is 40k+ ec EACH. (yeah i looked across all the areas that are covered by the Engineer (or is it operations...not sure i'll have to check the project) that is freaking expensive.....looks like i'll be farming for doffs specific to engineer or ops now -.-
I did want to point out, in response to the first post in this thread, that all gear acquired from Reputations will be Bind-on-Pickup. You are not advancing your Reputation in order to become an Exchange-based arms dealer, or supply an army of alts with enhanced gear - these are your personal rewards. This is by design, and incredibly unlikely to change.
Dammit! I was ready to role a Ferengi toon to exploit this! "Honest Boks Weapons Emporium" is a non-flyer then!
How am I ever going to afford that private moon?

Would it be too much to ask, for Reputation-based gear, to be "Bind-to-Account" ? That way you can't trade it with others, but you can trade it between your characters. Painful enough "leveling up" the Reputation on one character, let alone multiple characters.
