Asylum assignments may in fact be too generous. It is something I am looking into.

Purchasing Diplomatic Officers with Dilithium is a known issue you can track here:

You still have not answered my original question which is basically, "Is it possible to obtain a rare or very rare doff from the in-game packs?" If so, I will continue to plod away recording pack data to give people the results.

Thanks for the direct answer. Now we know.

Yeah, you're right. I will likely agree 100% with this once you get some sorting/filtering in there. But you know how important that is. Jus thought I'd beat the horse a ltitle. :p

I have received both Blue and Purple from in-game packs. Yes.

I've got over a dozen characters. And over many in-game packs (I've not counted) I have recived I think less than five Blues, and one Purple in there somewhere.

Yes. There is about a 5% chance for a non-C-Store pack to have a blue or purple quality duty officer.

Seems really low. Be more reasonable and help avoid cstore if it was about 10-20% minimum. Oh wait you cant cos you want ppl to spend money. Hmm...

While I do understand the reasoning there I do find it interesting that the DOFF system in general, and DOFFs particularly, are pretty much the only place in the game where the Rarity mentioned (Common, Uncommon, Rare, Very Rare) does actually relate to Rarity rather than just Quality. Does this mean that we can expect this attitude towards Rarity to spill over to other parts of the game too?

I'm not sure that is needed. Those assignments seemed to all spawn at once the day they were introduced to the game, but I haven't seen another since then. As well, I heard someone on the DOFF Channel talking about only getting 1 purple out of 20 some odd missions (I assume they were using alts).

In any MMO there will always be those who have nothing better to do than rush through the content and try to be the first to have everything and max everything out, then they sit around and complain that there isn't anything new or interesting to do in the game. Please don't use those people as a guide as to if the system is broken or not, it isn't fair to those who can't afford to play 24x7 (also, don't take this the other way and use those who log in once a week for 10 minutes as your guide either, got to find a happy medium)

Please don't... dont devalue the current ultra rares by making their abilities easy to get

Maybe if you come up with a different bonus than Kel's, it would be OK...

And I like the fact that purple/blues should be difficult to get, dont change that, we need at least some parts of the game to be challenging

They are a business, of course they want people to spend money. And 5% is plenty. Get alts, have each of them do the recruitment every day, and you'll collect those cadre packs awefully fast...

I did already answer that several posts above.. I've had numerous Rare's and a few Very Rare's from the junior Officer Cadre.. And one of my toons has obtained an Ultra Rare from the same packs.
