Elite dyson missions pay out hardly any Marks for the time invested...you slow bro or dont you math?
26 dyson marks for an elite level stf that takes 2-3 times as long as conduit is.......and most especially when you just have afkers sitting at the start.
You entirely miss the part where you don't have to pay marks for tiers.
@ 26 marks per stf you can get 900 in 35 missions.
But omega you have to buy the tiers for marks. 1040 marks to be precise. Let's "Math" (since it's a verb now)
100,000 rep for tier V / 2500 rep for each "project" = 40. That's 40 times you have to run the project @ 29 marks each. for a total of 1160 Marks. so at ~ 40 marks per omega stf you have to run stf's 29 times JUST to get the tiers before you ever spend a single mark on the gear itself. add the 900 marks for the gear and you get a cool 2060 mark cost for omega gear. Not to mention like 1.5 million EC worth of energy cells and 3 million in stem bolts.
Tell me again how dyson gear isn't significantly cheaper? So you get 35 % less marks per stf... you have to spend less than 50% of the marks, and you save more than 4 million EC.
