Exchange dilithium for zen and buy the ec cap increase?

Or just buy some Reinforcement DOFF packs off the C-Store and hope you get a Tuffli (or 3) in it?

Both that and the EC cap increase require the thing I dont really have, and thats money (hence me being a Silver player). Yes... I can grind out dilithium, but to get the amount of dilithium I need would take just as much time as getting the amount of EC I would need to buy a tuffli off the exchange.

I I could find somebody willing to work out a deal with me or something, Id be more than happy to, Ive got plent of Contraband and Gamma Quadrant commodies, and like 2mill ECs ATM. And a Combat EV suit that was given to me by a friend.

At ~200 dilithium:1 Zen, you could earn enough dilithium in under 2 weeks if you're starting from 0. Turn in all that contraband!

5 contraband for 2000 dilithium is a waste... Stacks of 250 sell for around 12 million... why would I waste it on 200 dilithium when I can run STFs for just about the same amount?

I think you should buy one, and then fly it in the Starbase Fleet Defense mission. Blend in my friend, blend in.

My patience for chain-running STFs is pretty low, but if you can stand farming dilithium that way then more power to you!

Defense mission. Blend in my friend, blend in.
Haven't tried it in the Starbase Defense missions yet, although i did accidently get my shuttle in one last weekend, along with another fleetmate, we all had a great laugh at it.

But back to topic, i use my freighter on the klingon side to run the Klingon, Federation, Cardassian and Borg defense dailies....they can fight, you just need to be real creative in setting them up.

I imagine Aegis with its +10% defense bonus is a good choice... perhaps a turret build with Mines or an aft torp launcher?
