Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

I took a look at the second floor. It's got a nice view.
Seems to be there mostly for RP I think.


With the main upgrade completion we unlocked 3 more side projects with some quality of life benefits.

i slotted the first one which will have the biggest reward I think: A Daily Mining Mission for a rich dilithium node. If that is the same as the the one we could get from a lockbox claim, it will yield 5000 ore I believe? plus we have 2 standard mining daily already available which can yield 1000 each. combine them all and you get 7000 ore already with a single mining session there.
get an additional 500 ore the next day by doing the doff assignment and refine and extra 500 instantly.
You are then only 1000 ore away from your daily maximum which you can probably do with a single mission or you hop over to the public Ferengi mine near DS9 and do the daily there, too.

This will guarantee even low level characters an easy maximum dilithium yield without much of a hassle.


Next project in line will be anoth 6% discount on dilithium store costs for everyone.

And last the Mini tailor with another costume store unlock. and then we are really, really completely finished with the holding! XD

Its not quite the same as the public VIP mining nodes. With those, you get a straight 2k? dilithium just from mining one single node for 1 minute.

With the fully unlocked fleet mine, you get 4k dilithium from mining all 15? 20? dilithium nodes. Around 3-4 nodes are located deep down underground which took me forever to find on my first and second attempts. Also, it takes roughly 30 minutes to get all the nodes. For higher level players, it may be faster and more fun to run STFs.

As for the costume, its a miner's outfit complete with hard hat and toolbelts. I have it unlocked on one of my characters just to see what it looks like. I'll post a picture of it when I can login.

Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

It's a shame you can't park your toon on there and mine between queues whiel waiting, since it pops you outside again after the mission.

BTW, I suspect it was vendikarr who filled the special cosmetic project? Thanks for that.

Here's the mining costume. There's no mining hat, I must have gotten it mixed up with the miner's costume from another game.

Yes, sadly the best you can do is park outside in Beta Ursae and zone in between runs to do some mining.

Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

To, for once, not talk about holdings and project requirements...


How is the interest in a bootcamp training series for the different STFs.

Each session would include a theoratical part with basic strategy briefing, gear/trait recommendations, a bit of time to optimize your build for the run and the we dive straight into the STF of the day.

Goal would be:
1.Enabling everyone to join a PUG and hold your own in the mission, knowing what and when to do to help with the success of the mission and on occasion maybe even carry the rest of the team.
2. Being able to function in a coordinated premade team and finish the mission at hand with time to spare and all optionals.


We have a lot of new members who are also still learning the game whose PvE will greatly benefit from this , but also some experienced players who have been playing very selectively and run some missions in there sleep while being totally new to some other missions (being a pro in space, but never dipped their toes in a ground run).

Veteran members who know every mission inside out can and should volunteer to join in as coaches for the others.

With enough resonance we can make this a regular event.

Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

That is a great idea! I could get in on that. There are some missions I do all the time and others I never touch. Count me in time permitting.

If it weren't for timezone incompatibility issues, I would happily help out. When I'm playing, everyone's asleep and when everyone's playing, I'm asleep. I'll settle for providing advise in this thread instead.

Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

Depends when, but I'd be up for helping out on some of these. Can run my secondary toon and see about getting a few Optional accolades knocked off, no one ever wants to run those anymore, so I've got Elite but not Normal

And PUGS are brutal, other than ISE, I try to just stick to the PublicEliteSTF channel so you at least get people that (probably) won't AFK you...

Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

I'd offer to help, but the fights aren't my strong suit. I have only just started doing STFs and only tend to do them with fleet members, not PUGs, except for The Conduit.

I did notice on the events calendar that we have another Dilithium weekend coming beginning July 24th. I can try and post my steps for Dilithium gathering for that weekend. I managed to earn over 300k on my main the last time.

70 Engineering/Ops Doffs and about 70k dilithium missing to complete the Spire Operations Facilitiy upgrade.

Edit: Spire upgrade is under way and we finished the last Dilithium store discount, we are now at minimum store prices for all fleet members, enjoy.

The last and final project for the mine is open: Dilithium Mine Tailor including a special costume unlock.

Sorry I had to AFK on everyone earlier - had just been called down to dinner, so didn't have much choice. Hope the IGN run went OK.

Yeah, went ok, We lost our guest player due to connection issues.

I used the opportunity to take it really slow and explain the strategy step by step. Made a good mission tutorial out of it.

Guys, we just kicked off the last Embassy Recruitment project to gather XP.
Finishing it will unlock the first Embassy T3 upgrade project.

So get ready for another major resource effort.

Re: STO: TrekBBS Armada and House of TrekBBS - Fleet discussion and FA

Sometime last month, I left this fleet to form a new fleet with a bunch of Australians. At the moment, it seems I'm doing a lot of heavy lifting. It's allowing me to get lots of fleet credit, but can't spend them. I'm yet to decide if return to this fleet permenantly or not. Finally started the first upgrade on the dilithium mine. Next will be getting it to Tier 1, so I can mine with my characters.

One thing I have found - learnt more about the game.
