Spam the living daylights out of Mirror Invasion. A full hour can net you a TON of Expertise. Combine that with any boosts you can.

Defera Invasion missions give decent expertise, as well. Nothing like what the Q-boosted Mirror Invasion gives, but it's not bad. And you get Omega marks for it.

Don't forget, Doff missions also give your EXP points.
Complain: to make a formal accusation

When I die I want my eSTF teammates to lower me into my grave so they can let me down one more time.

Sounds good in theory.
In practice, this would be a massive mistake!

I know in the future, the level cap is going up and at that time, I'm really going to appreciate having some untouched missions to do that will help speed that along.

But if I do them here and now for a momentary advantage, that option will no longer exist.
When you replay them, the rewards are much diminished.

They do, but not enough to count.
Also, this character has very limited DOFFs, I got what I needed to do Diplomacy and that was it.
I know from experience building a proper DOFF crew is an intensive exercise and as I mentioned before, I have no interest in doing that again.

Well then you have a choice. Do what they told you to do, and get your expertise, or don't, and keep trying hard to get some. They are giving you the, really, ONLY way to get expertise at end game.

As to the future level cap, as with the last time they raised the level cap, they installed missions to get you to the level cap, or darn close to it. If you chose to not do the missions in the off chance that within the life of the game they may (MAY) raise the level cap and for whatever reason not give us corresponding content, that is also your concern.

But.. then don't complain about a lack of expertise. It's out there... you're just choosing to not go and get it for your own reasons.

I did the full Romulan Rep and didn't run out of expertise. However I didn't go and unlock all the store stuff. Since I wasn't going to use them.

I did a ton of Deferi runs and got mine built up. Since I was farming it for Dil to use on the Dil store for items. Since the sellers wanted way more EC than I wanted to pay for. So Dil was the cheaper option.

It's been in the talk for like 2years now. And they will likely give some way to earn the necessary XP.

Q loves you, OP.

Simply accept Q into your heart and with a snap of the finger he'll solve all your problems.

Unfortunately, my computer is in the shop for repairs and when I get it back, Q won't be there anymore!
That's cruel mockery worthy of Q!

farmallm, were you doing all 3 reputations simultaneously?
It cost me 31500 Expertise per day (for all of them).
The items I am obtaining have a cost of 62000 each.


I should point out thanks to an severe incident on the Champions Online forum, I am very exacting with gameplay advice now.
You can offer your opinions, but if I say I don't want to do it, that's the end of it.


About Defera, I've always been dubious about that zone.
I've had negative experiences and therefore, decided to avoid it.
Nukara I don't know much about, but I get very frustrated when I go there.

It's my rule of gaming, if you're not having fun doing it, stop, otherwise you'll just get miserable.
