Perhaps the high dil cost won't be that much of a problem, if players can craft MKXII very rare consoles, and this may bring back ole good crafting fun back to the game.

I guess you can get these from fleet store. The only place you can get them is exchange and the costs are unexceptionally high.

You can get them with a DOFF mission.

You will get a RANDOM uncommon (green) or better Mk XII console from the assignment.

It's a trap!

I've received 2 good consoles out of that after trying 20 times. The rest of the time, it was purple Mk XII stealth consoles, or aux power boosters, or Mk XII green consoles, etc.

IMHO, you're better off powering the artifacts, then selling them for ~1.3m on the exchange.

They are not such a massive increase to your stats to justify how hard they are to obtain. They either need to buff the Mk XII purple stats, or let you craft the stupid things at Memory Alpha.

Even if dilithium were still required for crafting, this would make crafting useful again.

Trying to get a useful Mk XII purple out of the powered alien artifact is like getting a specialty hologram out of the Hamlet doff mission. It can be done, but not frequently or easily.

I've been campaigning for adding a crafting bay to a Mk 4 or 5 tier starbase which will let you craft Mk XII gear. I would also like to see a menu of procs that we can choose from to do the crafting, and the associated cost. Even if we had to go to Memory Alpha to make it and spend lots o' dil, letting us craft it would be nice, it would actually make crafting useful again. Despite having maxed one toon for crafting, she never goes back to Memory Alpha any more unless we are helping a lowbie level.
"Susse-thrai" had been the name bestowed upon her, half in anger, half in affection, by her old crew on Bloodwing; the keen-nosed, cranky, wily old she-beast, never less dangerous than when you thought her defenseless, and always growing new teeth far back in her throat to replace the old ones broken in biting out the last foe's heart.

If Mk XII purple becomes craftable at memory alpha, I think that means that Nadorc should provide some even better ultra rare Mk XII console on a crit success. It does require effort and people wouldn't like it if it was made obsolete by standard crafting methods.
