The woman where you change in the salvage, tech and chips also has a "general merchandise" tab or something like this. Under that tab you can change in chips for the borg set and chips, salvage and techs for lock boxes (which is probably a joke by the designers ) or dilithium boxes (like about a 1000 for a rare tech and 2000 for a very rare tech etc.).

I have the deflectors and shields Mk 12 of both sets, but still no Mk XII engine. I would probably stick with the borg set + Mk XII MACO shield anyway, but still...

Oh I never have checked those specific tabs to be honest..hahaha
thanks for the info will check it out later on tonight.

I hate it when it happens like that and u cant finish the set off
But the set up as u say is pretty good 2xMACO + Borg engines is a perfect set up for most.
The only time i run full MACO set is on my SCI toon with a SCI ship. My TAC & ENG toons run the same set up as ur using now and its pretty good.

I hope still u get the engine though soon to complete ur set.

i just did my first to ISE ever and managed to get 3 prototype borg salvage and 6 EDCs in total....seems a bit off considering that there are peopel who have run 100s and havent gotten one PBS.

I used to average one or the other every 5 STF's or so...now though....NOTHING at all.

WTF is up? Where they removed? Or did Cryptic nerf the drop rate to make us grind some more?

I find the Borg Tech stuff of any level seems to drop very randomly. Sometimes several rare or proto other times, even when you know a game has gone well, you get nothing but equipmt you sell for credits at great loss, just to stop it clogging up ur stock. And as for drop box keys, don't get me started on the extortionate cost of those. Given the volume that gets build up, we should get double the amount for what we pay for them!!
back to the original item, I find also that I very often don't get all the drops that I click for in a game, & very iften have to equal the 'squad leader' level just to get the basics! I have 3 STF & 2 KDF Admirals/Generals & it happens on all of them; no settings I tried have made any difference & neither has contacting Cryptic.

I have done two elites, and it shows I was awarded a Rare Borg Salvage item, but I did not get it in my inventory, I must be clicking the wrong thing or something.

just got the last proto tech drop for teh final set piece.

I have very pure numbers without muddled drop rates, because i started this toon with season 6.

Took me 103 STFs total for all set piece so I got one every 8-9 STF runs on average.

increase in people running stf's thinned out and just maybe they shut the thing of to reload a bit

or maybe they pulled tech to update it for system swap in season 7

recomend grind out 300 you might get set with that accolade
I am done working on starbase

Same here. Used to be that I got a purple tech, ever so often. Now I don't. For weeks on end. Luck don't work that way.

A very experienced member of my old fleet came up with an interesting and plausible notion; namely that they changed the purple tech to only drop for those who did the most DPS. That seems very consistent with what I've seen. He's a Tac officer (I'm an engineer); he can, by virtue of being Tac alone, always push out the most DPS than me (in short bursts of sometimes 3x as much). Hence, he almost always gets purple tech, and I very very rarely any more.

Even though I have most purple tech already (from the time it still dropped normally), indeed I think something's fishy. Naturally topics like these are invariably used by people for pointless grandstanding, and telling everyone how they are soo good that they are not affected by it. Nevertheless the OP is not the first one to notice, and not the last.
