What is everyone doing to collect samples and traces to craft on the their klink toons? I've heard many farming for the needed items on the fed toon then sending them VIA self mail to their klink toon. Is there an easier way???
The sorties, every frieghter you stop gives you 5 of something. Stop 6 inside and instance and you have 30 samples easily. I think kdf side is faster. I've had one fleetmate get 5 traces out of one ship and then the very next ship got another 5 trace.
Plus as a KDF you can STILL scan for anomolies in a majority of the daily mission instances, in additon to looting the freighetrs, containers, etc. If anything farming anomolies using a KDF toon gets you more, faster.
I've noticed that you get less samples from scanning the anomalies on a Klingon. I consistently get 3-5 on my Fed, while on my Klingon I get 1-3. I haven't gotten a single rare sample in over a month on my Klingon either.
If you want to gather Red samples I find this quite good assuming you also have access to the Deferi Daily's.
Go to the Deferi sector
Take the mission Cold Call
Go to Deferi planet and start Cold Call
Ignore the ship and collect the samples in the wreckage on the left and then the one far to the right in the asteroid field and leave.
Go to Outpost 3 and visit it and collect both sets of samples and leave.
Assist Outpost 3 and collect samples and do the mission and leave.
Visit Outpost 3 again and hopefully samples will have reset and be available again.
Go to Zaria and collect samples and do the mission.
Visit Zaria again and hopefully samples will have reset and be available again.
Go to Kelvani and visit it and collect samples and leave.
Assist Kelvani, collect samples and do mission.
Go back to Deferi and start Cold Call and collect samples.
Visit Outpost 3 then Zaria the Kelvani and back to Deferi.
Also remember to collect samples from Deferi Patrol and Breen Patrol.
Also if you are doing/redoing the Breen missions take every chance to visit Zaria/Kelvani/Outpost 3 and collect samples and collect any samples from the systems you visit for the missions.
