Since I heard they weren't going to give away the T5 retrofits anymore at VA, I decided to spend a good chunk of my weekend getting my tac officer to VA so I could go ahead and get my Defiant retrofit. Well, I've done it... and now I'm wondering what's next.
I was thinking of joining a fleet to do some of the borg missions that require a group (I haven't done any yet). Then getting all my XI very rares (I've got some already). Besides that and PVP, what do you recommend?
You can also start working on the Accolades that your character missed on the way to VA... (strictly for bragging rights here...) And you can work on aspects of the game you may have skipped, such as 'Crafting'...
The game was no fun before I hit VA.
Now, without having to level up to get better ships and doing story missions over and over I can take my time, respec my toons, get better gear... Gameplay is more relaxed now and I can just pop in and out and don't have to spend hours to level up...
Things that make fun at VA level:
- Refit ships
- Quantum Slipstream Drive
- Hunting for Purple Gear
- Maxing out my Diplomatic Tier
- Learning how to craft (Still in the process there... Taking it easy...)
Ahead of FTP, I'd encourage grinding out as many Emblems as you can before the conversion. This can be done in B'Tran dailies, Defera Dailies and PVP.
Play as much of the Emblem content as you can, because if they dont improve the conversion rate between present currencies and Dilithium, you're going to be horribly cash-strapped when what is on Tribble goes live.
I'd also encourage you to work up your character's crafting skill as well. In all honesty, that is a task that can be accomplished over a few hours in a single afternoon. Just crank out schematics, as you will always have use for them.
