That was on my main - I've still got plenty of Proto Tech/Salvage and EDCs on my other two alts, but since they're pretty much fully specced and I have no need for any extra weapons/space/ground sets, if S7 does hit today (which I think is unlikely) then I'll be curious to see what the conversion's like for them.

Hopefully though I'll have time to convert all their stuff too since I suspect I'm going to need the Dilithium...
I haven't converted yet myself but based on the current Tribble iteration I'd say you absolutely made the right call. The dil prices for former STF stuff right now are positively insane.

vids and guides and stuff

There's no doubt in my mind that people who hang on to this stuff are going to get shafted - it happened with the emblems->dilithium conversion and it's going to happen again here.

And whilst Cryptic went some way to softening the blow with the emblems (i.e. the veteran Boffs), it wasn't much of a consolation to those who lost out big.

They were never exactly generous when the game was pay-to-play, since F2P they've become positively miserly. Get what you can whilst you still can

I'm glad it is not the s7 upgrade, it gives me chance to get some of my toons the borg stf gear before they turn it into a ridiculous grind fest.

Yeah, if you don't have it - get it! Double EDCs on Cure missions today mean you could get a complete set in just 4 Elite STFs

Don't know about the STF gear but I've certainly used some of the EDC's I've gathered recently to obtain the Borg DOFF's currently available via Roxy/the Omega Office on DS9, since there has been no mention (so far as I am aware) of said DOFF's being available subsequent to season 7.

Yep. All my characters have at least one each of the two purple and two blue Doffs. The purple's aren't cheap but what else are you gonna spend surplus EDCs on?

*Edit* rumor has it these Doffs will be reappearing in a Doff pack at some point - whether that's true or not, time will tell but if they do, it'll either be in lockboxes or via the Lobi store I suspect...
