Increase Hyperspanner drop rate

If DB is gonna have crew like Mirror Geordie La Forge that needs dozens of hyperspanners then DB needs to drastically increase the drop rate. Even doing warp 10s on the only one level,that drops hyperspanners you often only get 1-3 of them.

    At least you'll get a handful of 0* Bloodwine while you're at it?

    Replicate it. These have been known bottleneck issues for a while. Other Geordie's have them.

    Eh, the problem with replicating is that they are used in the uniform slot. He takes a total of 44, spread over 15 total items.

    One takes 8 (which is also an event reward), nine take 4 (3*+ uniform, amongst others), and 5 take 3 or less.

    So, it's hard to replicate past it when you only have a few replicates per day.

    I farm these often, whenever I get low, with extra chrons from Voyages, events, gauntlet, etc. Aside from being used a lot for characters, they're also a perennial inclusion in Galaxy event recipes. You should always keep several dozen on hand.

    Don't worry, I'm sure one of the Galaxy recipes will involve a hyperspanner. Keeps competition in check.

    Guaranteed to. Galaxy events always use hard to get items that are required to level the galaxy crew. That's DB punishing you double for playing galaxies. Wouldn't want to be able to play and level, that would be a sin (see voyages nerf).

    And while you're at it buff the other Hyperspanner as well. Both have weak drop rates and the other is on a mission with only two drops.

    I would at least choose two dozens other items for an increased drop rate, before I arrive at hyperspanners.

    One thing to do, if they are used in the Galaxy component of the Hybrid Event, is to keep track of where they drop. Then maybe go for "extras" with left over Chronos after you finish your target in the Event Points.

    I agree, some items need better drops or more places to get at a lowish cost.
    I'm trying to get a final item put together for my Mirror Troi and it's her level 100 5* Assassination Plans.

    Now I'm not complaining that 5* items take work, that kinda comes with the territory. But it is absolutely insane that this thing needs 20 2* encoded communiques which are Maquis faction-drop only. I can't even begin to do any Maquis faction events until the faction portion of this event is over. 2* encoded communiques are always in demand too, so so so many characters use them, so I never have any in stock or barely have like 2-3 at most.

    I could replicate the whole thing but that costs replicator fuel, plus one replicator use, plus 250000 credits. I still think it is absurd that when replicating we are paying twice to do so: once in fuel and once in credits.

    It costs 177000 to build normally. That's a giant red flag saying REPLICATE NOW! It also can't be conveniently broken into smaller parts so you're probably better off replicating anyways. There are more terrifying items out there.

  • Yeah if you're spending that much for 2* encoded comminques then just bite the bullet and replicate it.
  • I do one or two gold replications a week. That would undoubtedly be one of them.

  • You get 4 on the average for 40 chrons. That's decent enough.
  • Totally agree with this thread. I got around to leveling my Lt Commander La Forge in prep for the event, and then started on Mirror La Forge yesterday after the pack became available, and oh my god there are a lot of hyperspanners!

    Scott do you use the wiki. This is its page for the DS9 hyperspanner.

    The link does not work because of parentheses.
    It takes you to the hyperspanner page. Click on the text not the pic for DS9 hyperspanner.

    That's the part I call the paintbrush. It is annoying to get, but still better than the science experiments.

    This. Particularly in reference to Geordie, I personally hate Starfleet Test Cylinders. Thank DB that they put two sets of them as threshold rewards!

    Test Cylinder drops from The Raptor's Fury (E7M4***) which is the best mission for AdWarping or farming 3* Clothing Patterns. After awhile you'll find you just have some Cylinders lying around since they're not used very often.

    Hyperspanners have no similar luxury. At least I don't have to worry about Bloodwine anymore.

  • I had a surplus of these trying to get bloodwine. And when I used up the hyperspanners, all I got was bloodwine. It’s like the game sees those green lights plus icons and lowers the drop rate LOL

    Sniper Ezri Fax has her gold level uniform that needs about a million patterns. Easy to get, but still a lot.

    I did end up replicating it.
    Reminds me of the nightmare that is Alternate Future Bashir and Bashir, Julian Bashir's 5* Kukalakas, those are the worst item builds I've ever seen. Perhaps this is a new thread we should start: what are the worst item builds in-game?

    I would vote Bashir's 4* and 5* Kukalakas for the sheer number of 0* Medical Experiments as well as the vast number of other smaller components Kukalaka needs beaucoups of, and Mirror Troi's 5* Assassination Plans for the 20 2* Encoded Communiques, of course.

    There's a lot worse drop rates on stuff in this game compared to the spanners... this would not be my top complaint... *cough* science experiments *cough*

    There are a LOT of horrible drop rates on stuff. I've gotten to the point where I can deal with bad drop rates a lot better than faction only drops. I get really frustrated when I hit one of those roadblocks where the only way to get what I need is to run 3 hour shuttles or hope it's in the faction store. The replicator does help a lot, but some days it seems like i run out of replicator uses really fast lol. I wish they would expand the VIP ranks and by extension raise the number of replicator uses per day.

    Luckily the forums warned my about this cursed object Kukalaka! It was replicated without a second though. Same with Mirror Troi's lvl 100 Assassination Plans... Took one look at it and was like "Nope!"

    OK, anything that needs six purple items to build is just cruel. :p
