# 1 Completely confused

Good evening all:

I am new to the game and have amassed level 30 due the playing a tone of pve and several assignment I've received from other sources.

I have to admit I'm clueless about fleet marks, credits, etc. I have little clue how to get to the alliance holdings (which, again I have little experience to deal with, when I was level 15 I accepted an invite to join an allice however don't know how to leave either) but unsure what to do when I get there. Is this conversion from energy credits? If not, what do I submit?

I know I have to use fleet marks for new ships, etc, but I have no clue how to look to see my amounts, etc.

I know it's a long post but I dont know where to start and truly need help. I looked in the beginner guide and it gave me little direction as to fleet marks/credit and their usage.

Thanks again.

Thank you for all the help, I have to muttle through this as best I can, but seems the complexity is not something you just adapt to in 4 months. Just hit lvl 40 today and feel ridiculous I don't know more...plasma vs beam, one projectile over ther other, etc. fricking learning curve.

I welcome all advice as well as a mentor.

Thank you very much for the offer, and I will definitely pick your brain..I do appreciate it.

I've seen folks running around with Borg gear, is that recovered or bought?

Also, I've looked at this fleet stuff, I'm screwed and just dont get it. Where to see amounts I have, purposes, how energy credits work, etc. I've seen ships a few days ago go for Z, now for some blue note, is that typical?

Thank you again folks.

To see what you have for fleet marks/credits, just open your inventory and there is a second tab at the top. On that second tab's page, you'll find your energy credits, fleet marks, fleet credits, dilithium, etc..

You earn fleet credits by contributing to the fleet's holdings' projects. When you're on the fleet page (button under the mini-map, or the default hotkey is 'cntrl-G', there is a tab call holdings (-> contribute).

on the roster page, you can leave. Hope that helps

Borg gear is bought through the Omega Rep.

As for fleet stuff, for most stuff, you'll have to run Fleet Alert about 22 times for each. (50K FC)

I've played this game now for 2 years, and you slowly learn the ropes. The wiki is good although lacking in info. These forums are a better source of info.

Thank you BOTH for all the help.

I will try to take a look at the fleet marks info you recommended today. When I first started, I believe lvl10, I got an invite to join a "clan", and was unsure just what that was...no I have no clue how to drop out. I admit, I am lost, particularly if I have a give donations to an fleet I'm not married to. Also, does a fleet take enery credits? I have a buttload and from what I can see all I can spend it on is weapons at earth space dock that are underpowered when comparison them to the Sovereign.

what is a Omega Rep? Where are they located, and what funds do I need to spend there to get better armorments?

Are there better arms out there (considering the virtually stock equipment I have now) that I should look at, and where?

Again, thank you and I love the help you've given.

You can drop the fleet easily and just join another one. Fleet credits stay with you.

It's a good thing Cryptic revamped the currency system, to reduce the amount of currencies players have to deal with. /sarcasm (hint: they have introduced around 5 or 6 new ones since then)

You can get better weapons as random drops while playing, or from the exchange terminals in most hubs, in exchange for energy credits.

Omega rep is under the reputation tab of your status screen (default: U, then rightmost tab). You need Omega marks for that, which you get by playing STF missions, found in the PvE Queue window (one of the buttons under your minimap). The different reputations require different marks, acquired through different missions in that queue window.

Good luck
