Thanks for the reply. I looked at the thread and saw quantum torpedos but not mines. I will look again as I could have possibly missed them. I do hope an NPC sells them somewhere. I could check the exchange and hope I guess. Anyone else have any info?
You can also get them at earth spacedock with exploration medals. that and pvp medals at k7 are the only two ways i currently know of to get awesome weaponry besides random loot drops. it's a shame i can't spend my endless supply of energy credits on them.
exploration can be very profitable actually. from exploring the hromi cluster constantly, i've been able to get around 300 xp per mission, just from the bonuses for combat explorations. and there are some that are literally go and find all 5 anomalies and get the crafting material and that's it.
