# 1 finding R&D doffs
12-20-2014, 10:49 PM
is there a way of finding them which isnt going to reddit to get their names, then searching the exchange for those?
Cryptic.
Figure out and address the players path of least resistance to reward. this one thing is THE consistent factor undermining all your efforts. be that crafting, raids or starbase projects.

Is there a way to search these very forums for such a thing? I think there might be. Or maybe scroll down 10 posts or so. http://sto-forum.perfectworld.com/sh....php?t=1315541

Alternately, open as many Xindi lockboxes as possible and run the Request R&D Assistance mission as often as possible.

There is also a list on the STO wiki page 'Research and Development'.

Sadly, the game's Exchange interface doesn't allow you to search for doffs by anything other than their name or their profession category. You can't just search for a particular trait or anything like that.

And yes, there's the option of generating them yourself rather than getting them from the exchange. You can get them from Xindi lockboxes or from the recruiting officer assignment 'Request R&D Assistance'.

so, the answer is, no.
gambling real money or dil to end up with my crew full of scrag quality doffs that i need to spend dil on doff space for, is bull****.

especially when it means i would need to check the ****ing name of every doff i was going to put into sb projects.

im getting a significant feeling of "**** this game entirly"...

I bought mine when they were still new and cheap. It was around 30MIL EC for ALL of them. Now they're around 30MIL each. Sounds like you missed the bus, man.

I admit the only Xindi DOff I don't have is the Insectiod...Still holding out.

Yes, it would be helpful if the R&D DOFFs went into their own Roster separate from the rest, so that:

1) They don't count toward your DOFF cap.
2) They can't be sent on other DOFF assignments.
3) They can't accidently be killed on said assignments or donated to Fleet Projects.
