Sorry, but I think that is not entirely correct. I pulled out a purple MK XII Plasma Console, a purple MK XII Antiproton Console and a purple MK XII Neutronium Alloy (which I lost the lot to, cause we were in a Team) from repair cubes (and 1 of them from a Tact Cube iirc). None of them has been a reward for being 1st place in Kerrat. That's how I got the Money for my Temporal Sci Vessel ;-)

I have a few pointers regarding this thread .i have different types of weapon set now everything on my ship is mk12 baring tact consoles,my tact consoles are purple mk11 from phaser disruptor tetyron poleron ect ect ect .having this many sets i can always change weapon types as nothing really stays in fashion.now this is a reason i will not commit to mk12 because there far to over priced and because of this your not going to run into another guy with full mk12 the chances are going to be very slim .
to commit to one weapon type would be silly because theres a lot of defenses out there to counter act your weapons so having other weapons will help you prevent this .now one thing you did not point out was what class are you and what ship do you fly these are key factors with in the game it would be pointless buying the best tact items if your ship only has 2 slots like the recluse if your sci or an eng you must take this in to account only char to benefit if anything would be a tact.
because the price is so high and the number you require for your ship it would be pointless
with new content always coming out you have many choices on how to boost your stats ect follow that path it works out cheaper.
things like rep accolades and many other things can help make sure weapons have the right stats needed for the job like acc dmg crt d crit h ect ect pvp is acc
i hope this helps those who read this thread and get a good insight

Yes, you can get MK 12 from the Tac cubes and sometimes the Repair Hulks, but the drop rate is lower than comming in first place in a Space War. That ALWAYS drops a purple. At that piont it is just a question of what mark value it is (X-XII).

Lets just say I think given the rarity, the prices on the exchange aren't insane. Now the price for low level plasma weapons, that is insane.

I settled on MK XII Blue consoles or MK XI Purple consoles.

1/10th the cost for 1.8% less damage. Smart man.
It is said the best weapon is one that is never fired. I disagree. The best weapon is one you only have to fire... once.
Tired of Wasting EC and Time trying to get Superior Romulan Operative BOffs? Here's a cheap and easy way to get them, with an almost 100% chance of success.

Honestly EC is so easy to get in this game that a player could pull 30 mill for a console in less then a month. Heck my Romulan is less then a week old and he's already pulled 3 mill in.

Unless you are burning through it purchasing commodities for the Reputation projects or DOFF assignments.

you can run a couple of STF and get enough EC to pay for the rep system easily.

30mil a month is way too easy to pull, if I had the diligence needed to log in every morning and do my doff farming, I would pull in way more than that. The release of LoR made me divert my attention elsewhere since I do accolade hunting.
Easiest way to get purple consoles is using powered alien artifacts. You get about a 1 in 4 chance of a purple Mk XII with Resolve + Stubborn/Efficient (There is a 3 crit trait doff, but the chances of getting it are very low) and about an overall 8% chance of getting a purple TAC console. I won't get into the economics of it, but taking the chance is better than outright buying the console.
