Ah, question answered - thanks!

There seems to be a slightly higher chance to get Common (white) MK XII gear in a group of five players whilst doing missions (especially patrol missions come to mind). I'd ask Fleetmates doing the Romulan reputation-system if they could save me a few weapons should they chance to meet them as most other players will be simply selling that loot. I for one needed a rather empty inventory when I did the Tau Dewa patrol - and there were always a few MK XII commons in the loot. Albeit sometimes with the modifiers, though.

There will be a level cap raise this year near Christmas, as far as I know, and then you can get MK XII from any enemy in any area since they level up with you to 60.

Why not go for blue MK11 gear? It will be the same as common white MK12 gear....

If I do find any white MkXII Photon Launchers I will let you know via the forum.

My first thought was that you were going to be doing a load of testing, hence the gear without modifiers. But you said that you were equiping older ships. Anyway, if you are doing testing, please be aware that Borticus (and a Dev) have confirmed that not all modifiers are being applied correctly when used with all powers. Fire at Will was the one power originally identified, but it did sound as if it might not be an isolated case. So if that is what you were planning on testing you might want to hang fire for a bit.

And if you were just setting up your ships this way on a whim, hopefully the community can help

are you trying to collect these items for other characters of yours or are you trying to collect to do stfs on elite with common gear in pugs which has been an well more of a common thing(pun intended) trying to make them harder for thoses who rush through them in 6 8 minutes?

Interesting why is that? More modifiers normally = better weapon.

For MK XII gear to go N'Vak system on the KDF side. its the KDF only version of Kerrat so it tends to be deserted. Just go and complete the mission and get the gear. (Be warned its a KDF vs KDF area so random players in BoPs might jump you from time to time).
My Romulan Liberated Borg character made it to Level 30 and beat the (old) Defense of New Romulus with the skill point bug.
