# 1 Dilithilum Guide
12-29-2011, 02:48 PM
Now that Dilithilum is such a big part of Star Trek Online's economy, it's important to know how to earn it efficently. That's what this guide is for, for both long-time players and newbies, and I hope you enjoy it If anyone has anything to add, things to change, comments, questions, anything, just post them.

Now then, the actual guide...

Dilithilum Ore:
Dilithilum Ore is essentially ALL the dilithilum you earn in-game, doing various things to get it. But, unfortunately, it's worthless in it's ore state. How do you change that? You must refine it into Refined Dilithilum, accessed from your Inventory's Assets Tab.

Currently, you're only allowed to refine 8,000 dilithilum ore per 24 hours.

Refined Dilithilum:
This is the Dilithilum you'll spend in-game, for a variety of things, listed below:

High-End Gear
Starships (Gold Members get one free ship token per rank)
C-Store points (rates can between 50 Dil - 1 CP to 500 Dil - 1 CP)
Unreplicatable Materials (needed for some crafting items)

How to earn Dilithilum Ore?
There are various ways to earn dilithilum ore, and there is no known limit to collecting dilithilum ore.

Other

Fed Mirror Event = 480 per run | Can do multiple runs per event. Must be Lt. Comm or above to participate
KDF Mirror Event = Same as above

Doff System Rewards =
5 for Success
50 for Critical Success (100 in the case of Uncommon and above, still working on this)
2000 on Turn Over Confiscated Contrabrand mission
Dismissing Extra/Unused Doffs =
75 for Common/White
150 for Uncommon/Green
? for Rare/Blue
? for Very Rare/Purple

| Also gives +10, +25, +?, and +? Recruitment XP for dismissing these Doffs


Currest Status: INCOMPLETE
Why? Because at the moment, I don't have the time to make a Klingon character in-game (I needed a break just to make this thread). So since I'm lacking in Klingon-only Dilithilum missions, PLEASE feel free to post them, so later I can add them

Oh, and +1 for sticky All the F2P noobs are gonna want this info after all

Very cool guide. Good reference for those of us that don't have time to follow all these new changes in-game. This way when schedules allow time to play we don't have to research where to go. This guide is a convenient resource ill definitely keep my eye on. Kudos Trek17.

"Doff System Rewards =
5 for Success
50 for Critical Success"

incorrect

i have seen plenty of 100 and .. i think 250 Crits depending on rarity of the assignment.

50 is for common assignment crits only


you are also missing the daily for foundry missions... officer reports.... something... 1440 dilithium

I just dismissed some Doffs and didn't get any Dilithium for them. I know I use to. Did they change it in one of the patches? If so you'll need to update the guide.
