    Which you'll need considering a lot of the z store ships are about 17. So glad I was a past subber and got my retrofit for free, and my z store purchase ship costume for about 4.

    If it's been a really long while you'll probably need to create a Perfect World account and link it to your Cryptic one.

    They've stopped the bonus, you've still got to link your account or it won't work.

    Linking FAQ.

    I think I may hit my max dilithium refining for the first time in ages today. Think it's time to get some better equipment for my ship as well, got mostly destroyed in PvP. My poor phasers couldn't work down most opponents shields, plus those Klinks like to run.

    Since the daily officer reports became single mission and with a short cooldown I've been doing lots of them, the Battleship Rumble is a nice test of changes to load out.

    Been doing lots more STFs and Fleet Actions too so my Dilithium levels are higher than ever.

    Looks interesting. I like the notes about the Android as I've made no use of mine as I had no use for another Engineering officer.

    That's grand. The more the merrier. Plus, I may be able to get more team stuff done. Although our impromptu fleet time the other night was most welcome.

    Oh, I queued up a bunch of follow up projects for the fleet. Hopefully that's ok.

    Ok, so what's the best way to grind in this? Looks like you need Dil for pretty much everything decent, so I assume running the group instances is the best way? Not found anything else yet that gives any significant Dil.

    While I'm asking - Duty Officers. What's the point? You get x on your ship to add bonuses and the rest do.. what - those mini assignment things, and that's it? Nothing else? Feel like I'm missing a trick. Same with crafting - keep getting stuff but no idea what to do with it. I hate crafting anyway generally but is it worth keeping (e.g. the alien artefacts and little things you get from the waveform scan minigame)?

    duty officers get you bonuses like for example level up your diplomacy and you get access to new missions for the federation diplomatic corps and new transwarp locations so you can move quickly across the map.

    Diplomacy is probably the most useful part of the duty officer system, the higher the rank the more transwarp destinations you get plus you can go into part of Klingon space (you've got diplomatic immunity) where there's some DOFF missions you can't get elsewhere.

    You'll normally make a load of dilithium if you do as many DOFF assignments as you can, as well as some rather good, unique things too if you're lucky and hit critical success.

    Right ok with you so far.

    Just made L30 and torn on the ship choices. Mostly want all 3 (Defiant/Galaxy/Intrepid) but suppose the Escort is the most sensible choice!

    If you get a critical success with a DOFF mission you usually get between 50 and 250 extra dilithium, all adds up. There are also rare missions that result in green to purple quality items like shields, rifles and armour. The amount of xp you get is also considerable, have one character levelling up purely on DOFF missions.

    It's also a good source of contraband, which can be used on a DOFF mission that rewards 2000 dilithium for every 2 units.

    It's every 5 units of contraband but it's still a nice amount of Dil for little effort.

    I always try to get the Strange Alien Artifact thing as well. Sells for around a million EC on the Exchange on a good day. That's how I got up to 5 mil...although I have blown a bit of that now on upgrading my ship.

    btw a thought for our fleet event why not for a change fight the crystalline entity!

    Didn't realise the Crystalline Entity was back online.

    Not that I really want to do that again, too many people don't know what they're doing making it impossible to complete and I dread to think how fighters work against it.
