I've got 3 characters that I literally login only to doff once a day and then log out. Right now that place is just ESD...Is there a better place(or maybe a sequence[one place ever few days]) that would better benefit me from having these characters just afk in the zones?
cause there u can do the test-daily and set up doff missions and its easier to beam from the academy to ESD that the other way around.
Also the little extra dili every day is nice if you do just doffs and this one mini-mission. Also if you want to you can do the personal mission to get more doffs if you so choose.
i mostly start at the academy, do the stuff there, then beam up to esd and if necessary beam up again to the orbit, thats mostly enough to give you 20 doff-missions and from the orbit when finished you can beam back down to the academy and log out.
I lvled a kdf char that way from start to 40 right now, so its nice and easy.
DS9g is actually the best place for me. You have instant access to the security officer, haggle missions, and to cardassian space where you can pick up officer exchanges and asylums. Also, asteroid mining. Fast access also to Sirius sector, Eta eridani.
Sometimes when i want to pick up vulcan/andorian/earth asylums i start in cardassian space, leave some assignment slots just for the asylums, then after aquiring them i go to ESD and park my toon at the security officer. With the next login i start from there and go back to DS9g... or i go back to DS9g right away after doing the asylums.
Sirius/Omega Leonis Sector Blocks (they have a lot of Relocate/Colonize missions there)
Eta Eridani (especially if you're in a fleet, and to access Ganalda and K7 stations)
Any Exploration Cluster (to finish Exploration related DOff chains)
Deep Space Nine (for rare commodities)
Beta Ursae (for the same reason)
For KDF members, any sector block other than Omega Leonis allows them to do raiding missions for both prisoners and contraband, both which can be turned in for a ridiculous amount of dilithium. KDFs may want to stick around either Beta Ursae or Eta Eridani to get to the security officers to turn in their gear. Although the space based Labor requisition DOff missions take less prisoners for dilithium than the ones the security officers offer, I do recommend the sec officer ones as the cap for prisoners is quite low, you can get upwards of 8 prisoners per raid in a sector block, and the Security officer missions allow you to turn in 10 at a time.
Going around Cardassian space is pretty important for doff missions as not only do you get rare commodities but also the officer exchange programs can only be found there. Also the 20-hour "escort to DS9" diplomatic missions are some of the best diplomacy missions there are if you are only logging once a day, and they only crop up there.
But you also need to head back to the academy once in a while for doff recruiting.
I am guessing you have also completed all your colony chains and got the purple doffs from the repeatable colony missions? They are pretty useful and worth flying around to get. You can get multiples of the same purple guy if you keep trying.
... For KDF ... do raiding missions for both prisoners and contraband, both which can be turned in for a ridiculous amount of dilithium. ...
See, reading threads like this is educational for a relative noob like myself. So you turn in contraband at the security officers? I'd sold some on Exchange for what I thought was a good price, but is turning it in better?
KDF is known for their marauding missions that yield large amounts of contraband which you then turn in for dilithium. This paired with prisoner labor camp missions means you hit your 8k limit with little effort.
I would suggest making one KDF toon, even if you won't play it, just for this.
Fed side I like Beta Ursae for the missions they provide. It has easy access to nearby sectors and typically has lots of mission options in sector and on DS9. If you lack DOFF's in general however stick around academy. The advice of academy--esd--sector block is a great method until your roster is built up.
