I've just setup the London (my Excelsior) to be a dedicated STF/Borg ship and moved all my anti-proton weapons from the Argus (my Sovereign) to there. I then setup the Argus with all retrofit phasers and I'm currently working on getting some purple quantums on it. I also gave it my Ageis set and move the Borg set to the London too.
I wound up putting 4X retro phasers on my excelsior as well, seeing as they level up as you do...plus I get people asking me where I got em in pve

Gah! Why didn't you say something? I had 3 Mk XII Mag regulators two days ago before I put them on the exchange! I only sold them for 25,000 credits a piece! I'd have given them to you!
Why would you do that? They're woth at least 10 times that, if not more. plain Mk X go for 150k and up, a MK XII has gotta be worth at least 300k.

When I get bored, I hunt through the exchange for things way underpriced like that, and flip them for more money...

Inflation. The last time I checked, a Mk XII was 1 mil.

didn't inflate that much either way, he just sold them at a substantial loss (compared to what he could have asked and easily gotten).

Re: STO: are starship phasers worth a darn?

I tend to undersell on purpose. I don't believe in gouging. So when other sell things for a million, I might sell for 150,000. In this case, it didn't matter and I just sold them for 25,000 each.

I intentionally just undersell items at TROLOLO prices, like 9999, 6668, 49998, and my favorite, 76542.

maybe just send me a message when you're about to dump stuff too cheap, so I can be ready?

Don't worry, I undersell on the Exchange all the time trying to bring the market down to a realistic rate.

Re: STO: are starship phasers worth a darn?

just saying, when there's one Antiproton mag for 100k, and the next is on sale for 150k or more, that's an easy 50k, and it usually sells within a minute.

In general, I just price things for 1 point less than the cheapest comparable one. Unless that's less than half the value, in which case it goes to the vendors. Ones that actually pay half, not the ones that rip you off and give you a third the price.

Yeah, the market can be insane sometimes.

Like Rocketeer, I just find the prices to be absurd sometimes. I mean, I have 13,000,000 credits, and there are green/blue/purple items on the Exchange that are far beyond my purchasing power. That's ridiculous.

Re: STO: are starship phasers worth a darn?

The reason why they are still in the exchange is because the price is nuts and no one is willing to buy them at those prices. This is why I usually see the prices as the upper bound on what people will actually pay.

By the way, I now have a mag regulator and all my weapons are anti-proton based. My advanced escort is ready for a dps showdown. My next big goal is to save up and equip a Sovereign class (so I can switch between attacking in my Prometheus and tanking in a Sovereign). I wonder if I can arrange my bridge officers so they'll function equally well on both ships.

Awesome!

As for Boff arrangements, it's a little bit of work, but you can do it. My Boffs are general purpose, which means their abilities won't do amazing things, but they're very cross compatible. I switch between my Excelsior Retrofit (which I love dearly), my escort retrofit, and my shuttlecraft, which I like to take into sector battles and confuse the hell out of new players as they watch me take on 5 ships at once and survive.
