07-17-2014, 07:11 PM
just reading thru the forums, and seeing posts mentioned of you guys having like 250/300 mil ec!

how on earth do you even grind that much, to get big ec I just sell keys, but to get that much for my method would have you grinding dil for years!

so how do you do it

A lot of people not only sell keys, but also vendor trash and (sometimes) items from Lockboxes.

iv found buying stuff on the exchange (before prices jumped) cheaper than lockboxes,

I have opened 300+ lockboxes, I get losts of mirror universe stuff and lockbox trash, but nothing worthwhile, I remember I got a plas leach once, but in 300+ boxes that is the highest grade item I have ever gotten from a lockbox.

on payday, I used to treat myself to 50 keys and a lockbox opening session, I quickly gave up and started selling the keys to get stuff.

suffice to say I have stopped, I don't know how you guys even get anything from those gambleboxes

Well with the nerfs basically the only option to make good EC is to maybe...and this is a big maybe craft and hope you get really lucky...or use those paydays and sell 50 keys.

Rule of Acquisition #1: Once you have their money, you never give it back.

The key to acquiring EC is to understand that pretty much all of it has to be taken from another player. And that once you have it, you never give it back. Buying things is giving that money back. Don't do that. Like you said, you ain't rich.

KDF is love, KDF is life.

So inhumane superweapons, mass murder, and canon nonsense is okay, but speedos are too much for some people.

Have 10 or 20 characters farm for nothing but contraband and romulan boff's

Then supplement with sometimes getting a good drop from STF on characters you actually play, if you play.

But of cours with the new doff interface the whole game is in danger

get a 10k dps warship, sit it in a foundry ec farm and you'd get 700-1000k a pop

not sure how much the 30k dspers get

LOR? about .63JJs. DR feels higher. Somewhere around .68 or .69, spiking to a .8 whenever Neelix be mentioned.

Support clusters -> Refugees
Convert refugees to doffs via the refugee to <planet> missions
Sell doffs.

You'll occasionally get purple doffs from support missions who you can't sell.
Grind them to blue, and sell those.

The Caitian flight training's also a good source of doffs to sell.

(Greens go into the various exchange programs in Cardassian space.)
