# 1 Account Wide Expertise Pooling
07-19-2013, 09:54 AM
One of my biggest issue with the rep system, which has become a pressing thing now due to making new romulan characters, is the expertise requirements.

1 Rep system will cost approximately 500k expertise per character.

There are very few ways to reasonably attain this amount of expertise through normal play, playing the actual missions and content you would be doing for rep systems.

Instead, one must specifically farm other content for this expertise requirement: Mirror Universe Incursion.


Something that would alleviate this, would be the ability to pool expertise as an account wide resource.

I have multiple older characters that have millions of expertise, and I have new characters that barely ever scrape together more than 500k.



The other solution would be to simply add larger and better expertise/skill bonuses for the missions we actually do to generate marks (STFs, Crystalline Entity, Azure Nebula, Tau Dewa Dailies, Etc.)

I completely agree. If expertise is now a commodity that you can dump into projects to get better stuff, there is no reason why it can't be traded between characters on the same account.

"expertise is now a commodity" makes me laugh. "I'd like to pay for tonight's dinner... with EXPERTISE!"
