    We are getting into a good mid range fleet now ahead of a lot of smaller ones I think.
    T4 with finished smaller holdings till the end of the year maybe?

    T4 by the end of the year should be doable. But I would also like to see us get one or two of our other holdings to T3. I just know Cryptic will introduce another holding with Season 9, and if we don't get one or two of our current smaller holdings done by then we'll never get anything finished.

    I think we should focus on getting the Dilithium mine, and then the Embassy to Tier 3.

    Sounds good, we're definitely making some progress. That order sounds good, as that will max out the discounts on anything else going forward. And then can chip away at the Spire in the interim, as there's good stuff in there.

    Although if you use the NoP channel, can get invites to somewhere with a T3 Spire if you need to buy something in the interim. We'll just have to keep a few provisions on hand.

    Mine upgrade is finished.
    Enjoy the opened exterior where you can do a daily dilithium mining mission.

    Can someone add my two characters to the fleet - ElimParra@joel1974 and Jackie Jones@joel1974

    Yesterday, I started messing around with crafting, as a way to get rid of some items, and make some credit also. Having an account bank helps, as I can transfer stuff between my two characters.

    Crafting is an area that's been ignored by the developers for a while. Before dilithium was required, I used to craft the Aegis sets and sell them on the exchange.

    The fastest way to build your crafting score is to stand by the crafting table and volunteer your services.

    Yeah, it was an area that was somewhat useful early on, and the Aegis set was the height of it, but they added in DIL requirements that killed it.

    Plus they haven't updated the craftable loot table in so long that power drift has made almost everything there useless anyway. Almost nothing there worth the time and effort, and you can get better stuff out of random drops or cheap on the exchange now.

    Rocketeer is right, though; if you want to complete the crafting ranks just to do it, stand there and help people craft things. You gotta build up your skills a bit to start, but from there, should be able to get to the end by making the mid-range stuff for new people. Or just look at the exchange, see what's selling well at the moment, and make a few of that item to sell and get your money back. Buy more materials, make some more. Don't make anything that uses DIL (unreplicatable materials), but craft the best selling item right below that level. Usually mid-level ship weapons, and quantum torps.

    I'm mainly doing it for my two characters. Plus I read they are planning on making some changes with it soon. For me, it's a way of upgrading some weapons and making some credit. Shall come in handy, when I make my Klingon sometime over the weekend.

    Changes? Its more like they want to throw away the current crafting system and create a new one from scratch. So its very likely whatever crafting experience you gain now will amount to very little new crafting experience in the future.

    Sweet. Priority now to to try and grind the Mine to completion. Can pick at the other holdings, but try and make the Mine the priority, and we should be able to finish that one in the not too distant future. Then can circle back and work the others some more.

    I would like to suggest we take care of one other thing first. There is a provisioning projiect started under the Embassy for diplomacy. We should finish that up, because it's blocking our slotting projects that help level the Embassy.

    Then we can focus on the mine.

    makes sense, just needs 75k DIL to clear that one.

    And outside of maybe an occasional Spire provision to keep a couple in the bank, please don't slot ANY provisioning projects. We're LOADED with provisions, and aren't really burning them at the moment. It just costs us resources that could be upgrading the holdings, and blocks a slot.

    Every project is heavy on one type of resource. Concentrating on just one type of project often ends up slowing down the upgrading process as we all run low on that one resource. That's why sometimes it is good to mix it up.

    I guess I should get my Romulan to level 50, so I can do that event.

    KDF side dilithium mine will be fully Tier 1 on all tracks in a few days, as the development upgrade clock has started.
