# 1 Making ECs: How?
07-19-2012, 03:09 PM
Ok, everyone claims they can make alot of ECs in a short amount of time. I have a demanding job, so I can only play about 4-5 hours a day. How can I make alot of ECs in FED (3 Toons) and KDF (2 Toons)?

the best way is to just get lucky and find a very powerful, rare item that you know can sell on the exchange for a high amount.

Otherwise, just sell off everything you don't need as vendor trash. Make sure you're selling to a Federation (Or Klingon) NPC, because the replicator and Ferengi merchants only give you a bare minimum.

Yup, just Recycle to vendors. Look for MK XI or MK XII purple weapons (Phaser, Disruptor, Poloran or Tetryon) with 3x Accu, those sell for a ton.

one I do a lot is Dof fmissions to make gear. It costs me nothing and I get xp out of it. DOUBLE WIN!

If the gear isn't useful I sell to a vendor for EC, if it's something good I'll either use it or sell on exchange.

MMOs aren't charities. Corporations are supposed to make a profit. It's what they do.

1. Wait until new lockboxes are about to be released.
2. Buy about 200 new lockboxes from the dilithium store.
3. Sell for about 60k-80k ec ea on the exchange.
4. Profit.

If you really want to earn loads of EC on a daily basis then you have to learn how to play the "Exchange Game". It will take some patience and a little bit of your play time, but you will be rewarded in energy credits.

And no it's not as fun as cruising thru space blasting bad guys into smithereens.

If you have real $$ you want to convert to EC, buy Zen points, use points to buy master keys, sell master keys on exchange. This is the quickest way.

Undercut the current price, force the market down then buy up all the cheaper items and resell them at a higher price.

Start a klingon character and hit up all the marauder doff missions that give contraband and sell them for 50-60k ec a pop.

Methogenic particle traces can go for 90-120k ec each too.

Doffs, white Doffs go for 100+ec. You have 5 toons that should net you at least 10 doffs every few days. And that's not even including any green/blue/purple doffs you might get.

5 toons x 10doffs x 100ec, you should have at least 5 Mil EC every few days.

Add in Delithium from Doff missions and the Lore quest that you can sell you should be rolling in EC. It should take you at most an hour every few days to farm your 5 toons.

Duty officer system. It's so complex that you can make a lot of money if you know the tricks.
