Ok here the question of the century are Mk XII tac consoles worth the 30+ million EC each. Running 4 Mk Xi at 28.1% that's a total 112.4%, Running 4 MkXII at 30% that's a total of 120%. 7.6% difference is not going to make the big of an impact or I am I missing something.

If not then Dev's can we get tac console fleet versions? Like the shiny new armor ones. You can add they to the "next new" fleet holdings upgrade.

I don't think that makes them worth it. Okay, you'll kill the enemy a few seconds faster - that's not an overwhelmingly good reason to pay XXX million more.

I purchased four MkXI [purple] Phaser relays recently, paid approximately 18mil in total. For four. You probably won't mind ONE MkXII for that price.

XII Purple is the standard. Everything else is worthless garbage fit only to be used as filler if it's really dirt cheap, or sold to fools who don't realize that spending money on it is money down the tubes, as those things are bound and thus cannot be resold to recoup your losses or passed to another toon.

They're also horribly overpriced, so honestly, I wouldn't use them either. Too much money at stake by not selling them. Just stick with the trash you find, or XI whites.

It boils down to this: To what value do you price your fun? Ignore the above post. Blue XIs are fine for both STFs and PvP.

*sigh*

If you have the resources to spare, purple Mark XII's of everything are worth it. Whether or not the cost is something you're personally willing to pay is another matter.

You can make do with MK XI blues or purples, or even Mk X blues and purples. You will do sufficient damage to pull your weight in most situations. You will not reach top performance, though, because there are better consoles/weapons/whatever. You have to decide whether it's worth the EC cost to you.

I kick plenty of PvE and PvP arse using a combination of Mk XI blue/purple gear and a few Mk XII blues or purples. I'm always striving to save up EC and other resources to obtain better gear. When I feel I can afford something, I get it. Until then, I simply make do.

I run mk XI blues until I can get mk XI purples/mk XII blues. After that, the increase of 1.8% per console really isn't worth it. Not to me. Now if I had the ECs, hell yeah I'd get them, but other than that, not really worth it. You'll do fine with just mk XI blues, you'll do quite well with mk XII blues, and mk XII purples is just overkill.
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.
Why the Devs can't make PvE content harder. <--- DR proved me wrong!

Quite probable that the next Star Base expansion will do Tac consoles, The Mine does Engineering console and Warp Cores, the Embassy Science Consoles and the Starbase itself Weapons, Deflectors, Shields and Engines.

Also each Faction seems to add a 2 Weapons and Console set and a Deflector, Engine & Shield set.
I was once DKnight1000, apparently I had taken my own name so now I'm DKnight0001.
If I ask you a question it is not an insult but a genuine attempt to understand why.
When I insult you I won't be discreet about it, I will be precise and to the point stupid.
