# 1 Borg Neural Processor ?
12-04-2012, 06:28 AM
What was the point of changing the drop in STF's if you have a chance to get 1 to 11 Borg Neural Processor? I have played STF many times and I only get 1 BNP, 1 time I got 6. If you made changes to make it easier for FTP people why did you do this with BNP? I have been a lifer since pre order and I don't understand this. It seems to be a contradiction. Is this a random chance? If so what is the chance? Is there something you have to do what is it? I have played STF where we failed the optional and ones where we completed everything and I only gotten 1 BNP.

I have tried to look this up but I can't find anything anywhere

When you complete an STF on elite you get a BNP guaranteed.

There is a loot roll at the end for each person that guarantees them an extra reward or two. This is normally gear, but can be extra omega marks or BNP's.

When you got 6, you actually got the usually 1 and then 5 extra as a random reward, 11 is 1 plus 10 extra.

this is sort of there to replace the random drops, and the chance of the MK XII gear from the past. the XII sets cost 10 BNP as part of their projects so it goes part of the way to buying you which ever piece you want. or you can turn them in for dilithium.

its not as good as just receiving a piece straight up like before, but it helps take out the possibility of never getting the bit you want as you have a set goal to reach. the extra rewards just make it easier.

the idea is to make the system easier than the more complex and convoluted way we had before, and allow people to earn rewards without being forced to play missions they dont like.

while i dont know what the chances are, i do know from only having played a few elites that the drop rate is pretty decent, and you dont have to get the optional. just finish the mission.

While it takes a lot longer, it's far less frustrating. No more first timers getting that shield you've done the map 120 times for and still not got...

Oh and Captainrevo1? You made the Worst of all worlds stuff? WIN!! I loved those! Thank you

How do you turn in the Borg Neural Processors for dilithium? I assume it's not as simple as hitting "discard" but I wasn't sure. I figured I should ask.

You need to successfully complete one Elite STF, and it unlocks the BNP hand-in reputation mission.

The mission goes in the upgrades slot, takes 15 seconds, requires 5 BNPs, and gives 500 dil.

5 BNPs = 1000 dil

Its both. There are two missions you can choose from. One is 500 dilithium for 50 Omega marks and the other mission is 5 BNP for 1,000 dilithium. Consequently, you can also turn in 50 Rommie marks for 500 Dil in the Rom Rep System as well.

I've completed more than 1 and it is still not unlocked on one character. I can do it on another though.
