basically if you run fleetaction all day long you will endup getting a ****load of purple MKXI items, mainly consoles...some really sell very well.

so 30 million a day, sure, is it a lot of effort, probably

Not remotely true. Only the top person gets purples that means 19 other people didn't. If all 20 run them all day long, one guy wins 19 people lose. All day long.

I'm feeling like small potatoes here. Silly me thinking that getting 250-300k in vendor trash from a certain foundry mission, plus 200ish k from my Tau Dewa daily (Acamar) was good. I think over the weekend I did close to 3 million EC doing a combo of that, plus my normal dil runs.

That's not how the system works. It's a tiered system with multiple people finishing at the same rankings. I've finished first along with others in the same instance on multiple occasions.

Any pilot worth his salt can routinely place 1st or 2nd. If your going into one with a pure support cruiser setup or a heavy sci ship, you probably aren't that concerned with rewards or making EC off it anyway. Otherwise pull out an escort or a FAW tac cruiser. If you still can't manage it, maybe you need to work on your game.

There really should be a clearer path to those Mk XII purple consoles. The tiny increase over even a Mk XI blue console is not enough to justify either the convoluted DOFF missions or ****ing 40k on the exchange.

Just put them in a vendor for 20k dilithium each, for ****'s sake.

Nah, we need stuff to spend EC on. It's fine. If its such a small upgrade, don't worry about it, you don't need it.

But I want it. Waaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh!!!




(I have no clue how to rack up 40k EC without playing 16 hours a day, which I refuse to do.)

A blue shield sells for 40k, I'm assuming you mean 40m.

In the last two weeks I've had drops from eSTFs that sold for 65m a piece. I bought out a bunch of cheapo plasma infusers a couple weeks ago and I'm now selling them for a 250% profit(banking on Romulan weapons creating demand). Ive made tens of millions off that. Lots of ways to make EC for anyone inclined to look.

I maybe play 1 hour a day and 3-4 on weekends and turn over 30-40m a week average, sometimes far more depending on luck and market opportunities. That's pauper status compared to the folks that play the market on the super expensive items

I was thinking I'd try to experiment a little, sell one more key on the exchange and buy two more powered artifacts for a million (if they go for that much) then make 3 consoles. Well, actually, which one has the cooldown, making it, or getting the strange artifact?
