# 1 Big Dig??
08-13-2010, 02:00 PM
Ok, can I request that Big Dig is NOT one of the Dailies offered?

There never seems to be enough folks there to complete it...something more fun please? Like an honest to goodness Fleet Action with spaceships and stuff? Please?

LOL. I've done it once successfully and will likely never waste another 2 and a half hours in that way again.

Change instances, that's where all the Admirals are, in the Commander level Big Dig. Instead of 4 hours the VA level, it's a simple 1 hour.


Of course, it will be a matter of time before Cryptic stops that and make us suffer that grueling time consuming daily.

Make sure you in the VA version not the RA version. You could be at it for hours on RA. click on the mobs the VA mobs are -28 the RA are +2.

You got that wrong. VA Mobs are +2 and it's not Rear Admiral thats -28, but the Commander Level Big Dig.

Yeah, Big Dig and CE are both time-sucks. I try to avoid them.The rewards/drops simply don't justify the grinding.

Digger, please indeed!

You can pick which one you want both have planets. Why would waste your time in the harder version? Like I need the XP or something.

Agreed, Big Dig is a disgusting waste of time.

I did the Big Dig twice today on my Klingon, one being lucky enough to get at the tail end, the other I had to trudge 3 hours at the VA level instance (+2 mobs). Took 3 hours..........

In the end I got First Place and ended up with a Blue Mk XI Disruptor Split Beam.


I really wasn't happy because for 3 hours on something you could very much get off a drop on a mob in Exploration zones, just makes you want to /facepalm.

These Fleet Actions need unique loot. Guaranteed players would go there if they could get something that couldn't be easily replaced by the Marks or Emblem stores.


BTW, the Trophies are pretty bad...........Only one that looks decent is the Scout Mission one.

You're wrong, we don't have a choice. Cryptic never intended players to choose, they wanted us to play in the same instance. Its a fluke in the code that allows players in certain zones to change into a lower-tier.

Guaranteed they are working on something that will prevent us from changing instances into lower tiers real soon. So if you havn't gotten your First place Trophies and Accolades yet in Big Dig or SB24, you better do so now while you can.
