Well, I suppose when I join the fleet SOMEONE will get a hold of me for it.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

Played my first elite STF. I ran the KA space, and it took forever (about 45 mins). Donatra's ship alone took 30 mins, and about half way through, the entire zone unteamed. Weird. For rewards, I picked up a large engine consumable, 2 EDC's, and a purple Graviton Deflector Arrary MK XI [EM][CMS][Ins].

I also ran a DOFF mission to turn over contraband, and I must have had a lot of contraband because that one DOFF mission gave me 2,000 dilithium.

I remember playing on tribble I used to hold onto my contraband as it got used a lot to make weaponry through the DOFF system. Now I take the turn over contraband mission when ever I see as it allows rewards over 500 dl. First time I've seen a critical success though. Nice.

having a lot of connection problems tonight, so going to give up on it...

once we've gone through the Odyssey shakedown cruise stuff, I'll start organising STF's for people with characters above Lv 45

Sounds like fun. I've just started getting back into the STF's and would like to get the MACO gear. I'm running the elite KA space mission as it is one of the easier ones to run on elite, and the elite missions give higher gear. I've gone through the walkthrough on the STOwiki site and have a better understanding of the option objectives. I would recommend that people read those walkthroughs before entering an STF so that you know what the goals are. With a lot of new people entering the game, you get people running around shooting at everything they see. Looking forward to running some STF's with our fleet.

Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

If you are just after EDC, Infected Space Elite is the easiest. No fail option.
Getting the Optional can even be done with an all cruiser team.

The way to go is:

Clear the trash mob.
Prep all 4 nanite generators for destruction, get them to around 10-15%.
Blow them all up at the same time.
Don't bother with engaging the spheres that will spawn. Focus all fire on the transformer which will go down faster then any nanite sphere can reach it to heal it.
Then it's a matter to focus on the newly arrived ships and clean up.
Then repeat the same procedure on the other side.
When the second transformer blows be carefull not to go anywhere near the tactical cube to avoid premature aggro.
When second sphere waves are gone attack the gate from the backside.
That just leaves the tac cube. If you had a smooth run so far you should at least have 5 minutes left.
The tac cube has a habit of one-shotting even the toughest ships.
Aggro managment is important here.
Keep an eye in who gets targeted. A dedicated Tank can take it's fire with some well timed resists and good gear.
Everyone else get out if range asap.
If you keep hanging outside it's weapons range while targeted everyone else is save.
As a tank I dive back in when my cooldowns are done to keep the aggro.
You will never completely avoid dying and there is a death penalty in Elite STFs.
You will accumulate injuries with each death that will reduce your effectivness severely. So bring a stock of repair components if each variity: minor, major and if you have some critical.
Use it right after dying while the respawn timer is still counting down to save time.

Good luck. O

For those of you who have access to tribble, you'll be able to test the new Odyssey and Bortas on it once the test server is back up. They WON'T be using the Odyssey and Bortas costumes however, so it's simply a test of their stats and abilities.

So... if I was to want to have someone else craft for me and I get them the resources, is that doable in STO?

Yes it is, but I can't answer as to who you should talk too. Not sure who's got the higher crafting levels around here.
I can help you there I have a character with maxed out crafting skills.

Ditto. I'm not the official TrekBBS crafter, but I have max crafters on FED and KDF.

And I'd almost say even without all the data samples, there's a large collection of them in the fleet bank that's even still growing. I've got some sitting in my bank only because of the fact there's no room for them in the fleet bank.

Actually having a good stock of materials is good if you want to get decent gear with your dilithium seeing as the vendors don't sell the good stuff anymore.

Yeah, my stock is going up. Been considering sending my excess over to my KDF toon for that fleet. Most of what I get I stick in the Fleet Bank, but there's some that I can't put in the bank because of them already being to 250, and no other slots open.

Well, it mainly offers up ones that contribute to success whereas I'm usually going for the *crit* success. Also the filter still needs some work (or did). The last time I tried it was Tuesday and it still had some glitches.

Also I noticed that dilithium payout on some crit successes has dropped to 125 di.
Yes; but if you skip out to the roster and list all who have one of the crit success things you need, the green will stand out to show you who has the success things also, or who has more than one.
LOL, I thought I said that. Thanks for clarifying.

Congratulations....
Have you played all the patrols as well? They should pop up when you get close to a system that has one. They are not given out by an NPC anymore like they used to.
They are quick and dirty one map missions mostly, but there are some gems in there as well....
Go and explore to find them all
If you are interested in the Diplomatic Corspe you should definitely get into the Doff System, because you can't ever reach Diplomatic ranks with the current 10DXP those missiosn give out. You need the DOFF commendation points for that.

The best diplomatic player missions however can be found on Vulcan, in the Bajor System, on Starbase 39 and Memory Alpha.
You'll need to update you thesis on diplomacy advancement. ;-)

Have they finally changed the numbers? Might be worth looking into diplomatic missions again then, to shorten the last bit to tier4.
