Trying to find the T4-T5 threshold (without any techs).

30 EDC, 22 RBS, 11PS still gives me 1.5k OM, 7BNP, 1k dil (T4 box)

A toon with 54 EDC got the box above (even though he has less RBS and PS), so I think its linked to the amount of EDC.

EDIT

So i found another threshold (ish)
41edc 20 rbs, 6proto sal and 1 mk12 req form was a lvl 4 box
51 edc, 21 rbs, 7 proto sal and 1 mk12 req form was a lvl 5 box

According to the reputation system on tribble, you can convert 5 BNPs into 1000 dilithium ore (+5 omega reputation points).
So, I will keep 10 EDCs, atm worth 1056 dilithium. After S7 launch you will recieve 1000 dilithium in the form of 5 BNPs and "pay" 56 dilithium for 1000 OM and 5 reputation points (-> If the conversion system is not changed)
fantastic data points thanks for doing the work !

Well, its clear they aren't changing the conversion rate and have no intention of even coming close to parity for what people have earned. I've cashed out already, keeping a small reserve in the bank so I get a box and some relief on tier 3.

Agreed - based on what I've seen here the best deal we can get is either having 1 x EDC or around 150 EDCs and getting rid of everything else.

1 x EDC = 500 Omega Marks, 3 x Neural Processors (value atm 105 Dilithium)

150 EDC = 2500 Omega Marks, 11 Neural Processors, 3000 Dilithium (value atm 15k Dilithium)

Pick one of those and sell everything else off.

This whole thing has me questioning the wisdom of my recent LTS purchase.

You won't fool me again.

I think I am going to watch this thread and see other people's conversion and pick a place I feel comfortable. Anything after that I am selling ASAP. Right now I am looking at cashing in about 90% of what I have. I dont care about the dilithium refining gate b/c I have enough now to carry me for the 2 months plus backlog I will have.

Playing on tribble the only issue I seemed to get in progressing was 1. no one in the que's to get bioneural pieces, 2. time gate slowed me down. I had enough EC and Dilithium and EXP to prob go to tier 5 w/o blinking if it were not for the time gate.

So yea, I'm cashing it, out and what ever beyond that will be a heads up the game play.

It's not that people hold onto it for bad times, it just adds up once you have everything you could ever need it for.
And with the refinement cap in place, there is no pressing need to convert it to dilithium either.
Just the mild hope, that Cryptic will eventually release new gear like originally planned at soem point.

Here are my results, but I can tell you how they all ended up right now:

1500 Omega Marks
7 Borg Neural Processors
1,000 Dilithium

Here's what each character had on them (some are copies of older characters):

Character 1
27 EDCs
1 Prototype Borg Salvage
1 Rare Personal Weapon Tech

Character 2a
24 EDCs
1 Recruit Shield Requisition
1 Recruit Engine Requisition
1 Rare Borg Salvage

Character 2b
43 EDCs
Rare Borg Armor Tech
Rare Borg Deflector Tech
Rare Borg Shield Tech
5 Prototype Borg Salvage
1 Rare Borg Salvage

Character 2c
49 EDCs
Rare Borg Deflector Tech
Rare Borg Shield Tech
5 Prototype Borg Salvage
1 Rare Borg Salvage

They all came out to the result near the top of this post.

Also, if you have a Requisition Authorization (what you get when you go to DS9 after you reach Level 44 (?) and talk to D'Vak (?) and Roxy), turn it into a Mk X Requisition. One of my Klingon toons did this and now has a Mk X Requisition that can't be used on anything on Tribble.
