I know exactly what the problem is.

* Talk to Q and get the skill point boost.
* Do a foundry mission.
* You get only half the drops of the first round. Nothing else.

I learned this the hard way. Didn't get the skill point boost on any of my other toons after that.

This needs fixing.

Thanks for this tip everyone. Didn't even think of this (thank heaven I'm not paid to think). Will try later this evening after reset, and if this is the case then I apologize to everyone and to Bran for my ignorance. Thanks for all your help.

I'm not sure this has been asked before, but did they change the daily limit of items you can get from foundry missions?

I've been doing a mission with four maps, normally I would get items from three of them, now the loot stops dropping when I've finished one map and a half. I can get only half the energy credits I used to get from one mission.

Did I miss something in the patch notes, or wasn't this announced?

Ah, I thought it might have something to do with that. Thank you very much

I think Brandon should put a *Notice* about that...

It is kind of funny, thinking about it. Knowing that their tied together in the back of your mind, but not really thinking about it from doing it for so long...yeah, never crossed my mind to put the two together like that...even though they've always been put together. Have to wonder how many other folks may have let this slip, just not something they normally would even given a second thought to...

Would this apply to setting elite as your difficulty? I had been testing to see if I got any better loot under such difficulty, but just noticed that I was only getting half as much as I should.

Ok so did foundry mission tonight after reset. Same thing as yesterday, only half the loot drops that I usually get. Not only that, but no skill/expertise points during the second half of mission (half of what I normally get). That was with both my main and my alt characters. And I did not get the boost from Q, had no other boosts of any kind, nor was I at my cap, as I did the mission about ten minutes after reset. What's weird though is my fleetmate did the same mission with one of his characters and got full loot drops and skill/expertise. He also did not get the boost from Q and was not at his cap. Maybe the foundry just doesn't like me anymore, but something weird is going on.
