Actually they made a stealth pass on the Nukara adventure zone a while back and upped the number of Nukara Marks each mission gives. During a mark event the other day I made over 250 Nukara Marks in 30-45 minutes playing by myself. Not quite as rewarding for the time spent as ESTFs, but closer than anything else in the game.
I think the worst rep points to obtain are the Romulan Ones.
- Omega Missions (core 3 being played since before rep system) = approx. 50-75 marks each completion. (at Elite, factoring in Optional Success or not + bonus marks hours or not)
- Nakura Marks - As stated previously. A full run of easy and mid level mission completions both inside and outside during bonus hours netted me a nice 200 marks (give or take approx. 1 hr solo)
- Romulan Marks - TERRIBLE rate of issue. Best I have found is Daily tour during bonus hour for 75 marks. (this takes about 45mins - 1hour to complete). Otherwise you can grind the only other events I have found (not inc Vault which is a pain changing ships all the time) for Azura Rescue, Vault: Ensnared and Rh'ihho station. During bonus hour netting maybe 20-30 marks each completion IF lucky.
Forget the instances on New Romulus. Each give u maybe 5-10 marks for quite a bit of mundane work.
(noticed how tedious this was whilst spending over 7hrs constant grinding to get the required 500 marks for some tier 3 gear. - shudder to think how much will have to be done at tier 5)
-- If anyone has any alternatives for earning Romulan Marks at a better rate of 1-3 vs Omega or Nakura Marks, would love to hear it.
i really want elite versions of the romulan missions for marks , atm i find that doing the tau dua sector daily but not turning it in untill the mark event will net you 75 and just do the mine enemy event with a semi reasonable team nets you a good 75 each time also and i can make about 400+ for the hour . but i REALLY want elites for most of the other mark generating missions, like the omega ones have, i am always swimming in omega marks and never have anything i want to buy with them, really hoping there will be a way to exchange marks for other mark types with a small exchange fee or something.
You only have to look at the numbers. I run pretty much everything on a pretty much random basis and on my main I currently have 6287 omega marks, 389 Tholian and 251 Romulan marks. I have also spent far more omega marks than the other two. It's still totally possible to do all three reps at the same time, but irritating nonetheless. And yes, we know about Epohhs.
