I've only done the mirror event once...and that was at level cap a few weeks ago on my main toon...how is the xp gains? while i am leveling slowly (its been a week since i started by eng and she just got to level 40 doing story missions and the occasional patrol for when a mission was just out of reach hehe) but im hurting on Expertise for my Boffs.
All XP gain is way too much. It certainly hasn't taken my new character long to get 30 levels with only daily Defera Borg missions and duty officer assignments (no MU). The last story mission I did was Spin the Wheel. Most working people can't catch Mirror Event that often anyway because of the 15-16 hour rotation.
You folks now that you can level just as fast doing patrols? Without being tied to any event?
Leveling new chars via MU has become real painful lately from my experience. If you don't deal lot's of damage, you get a smaller share of the XP. And on low level MUs some people think it's a great idea to bring their VA buddies to "help" them level faster. Only thanks to them doing 90% of the damage the actual lowbies get 30 XP per kill. Awesome.
I know this Idea may be unpopular. But I believe since this is a new faction. And we are starting a new. It would be nice to experience in on a slow grind. Savor the time spent leveling a new character. After 30 days all bets are off. We are all in such a hurry to get where we are going. It might be nice to slow down and smell the flowers. Enjoy the lower levels and do some regular missions. Once you hit lvl 50 its all STFs and Romlulan and Fleet missions for the Reputation system.
Why not take our time?
Because you will be imposing your will upon me. This I do NOT believe in.
