WHERE CAN YOU FIND THESE NOW! besides the DOFF system for console and the over priced exchange. And as for wepons besides fleet system there are no other options except for random drops. These should be put inti the rep system store or increase the consle vender to at least mx12 blue
I find a lot of these in the Fleet Actions if you can place first, or in the PvP Warzones. Otherwise it's pretty much luck of the draw wherever you go. Personally the weapons don't give you that much of a boost going from XI to XII but the consoles do provide a pretty decent boost. I agree however that the Exchange can get very pricey, especially for some of the more commonly used consoles.
I'd really like to see the ability to craft them, and perhaps bring some value back to the crafting system.
I thought [Acc]x2 was an option on the Romulan weapons? I could be mistaken, but I thought I saw then when I was looking them over last night.
If you're not into plasma, there is Advanced Fleet stuff. It's a T2 Starbase unlock, so not hard to get. Choice of energy type on those, some choice of modifier. I have multiple sets of advanced fleet weapons, love them. Elite Fleet weapons will be phaser only (Fed) and disruptor only (KDF), but have some special unique modifier.
Other reps will likely cover other energy types. At the moment Elite Fleet has phaser/disruptor, Romulan has plasma. Other energy types are covered only by advanced fleet and random drops.
Mk XII consoles can be obtained via Powered Artifacts from your ship's engineer doff. You obtain Strange Artifacts from the Children's Toys chain repeatable (see bit.ly/DOFFS to see if anyone's spotted it this cycle) and then can power the artifacts up by running the special infuse project at your ship's scientist doff.
