It seems there is no way to level a Romulan even to the lvl 11 doffing section without story missions.

You can't even do patrol stuff as you are locked in the Tau sector.

No, and why wouldn't you play the story anyway? Definitely a good story arc there, one of the best Cryptic have done recently.

Also maybe known as "SFC3"

Can you go to nimbus & get in a fight?

Hmm after 12 romulan/Reman toons through the story arc - it gets OLD

but it seems the story is so integrated into level progression there is no way around it. You have to do the story mission to even leave the sector.

This is not the case with Fed/KDF

edit: the good thing rolling a new toon now after the crafting launch is that it is ULTRA cheap to fulling kit out your new low level ships with low level gear.

rare gear in the low levels that used to cost 500k EC+++ is going for 1k to 5k EC as the market is flooded with it.

this does make things a bit faster.

You might want to breeze through the conversations and other stuff like them, since that's basically the only way to do it faster.

Don't worry, OP. Odds are, the devs will remove the patrol missions eventually too, since most of them are roughly the same quality as the exploration clusters they just got rid of. So soon, the only leveling path will be through the episodes and queues!

(Only half joking.)

You could wait for another Bonus XP event.
I believe there's a skill point bonus pool for sale in the c-store, but I never bought one.
NO to ARC...Make It VOLUNTARY

Yeah... no way around it.

But at least you level up after every story mission (most of the time).

Cant go anywhere or do anything until you choose an alliance, since the game doesnt know what missions to give you. Cant even use the exchange, since they cant show you the correct faction gear.

AFAIK the only way around the early missions is to wait for doulbe-XP weekend. Last time it came up, skipping past the tutorial put you around lvl 10.
