Cost of fleet modules is back to below 5 million EC on the Exchange, so decided to splurge. Despite the doffgrinding assignments and selling stacks of particle traces from the asteroid mining, my EC is still pretty low, but I hit 8 million so decided this was worth it - just 50 or so Zen away from having enough for my final module to purchase a Fleet Recon Sci ship. Then I can start saving for all those nifty fleet weapons/equipment!
Crafting seems to be a useful way of getting EC - I've sold a bunch of blue Mk 8 dual disruptor cannons without having to dip in to unreplicatable supplies... how much do those cost, BTW? Since I don't STF or FA, the Aegis set may be my next upgrade and I'm trying to work out if it's easier to craft myself or buy on exchange.
