    Update, I ran out of gear to craft the Carbonite Circuit Board XD

    All this Relics for JML dried me out.

    Yeah I don’t think I can chase another GL even if I wanted to and had the patience to wait out a year to get one because of the scraps
  • I had enough to meet the requirements for Luke and have enough for Luke himself on the lower 3 salvage materials. The higher stuff I never really had a stockpile of and had to keep getting more as I needed it. Going to wait for the event before using anymore, no idea yet if I need higher relic levels on the event characters and not going to work on anyone else until getting and relicing Luke.
  • Month 2 player, 40 relic’ed toons, I will run out of material either just before or just after being fully ready for GL Luke.
  • I am a 4 year+ ftp and I had to buy circuit boards with crystals after struggling with them for too long. I have only Rey GL and I'm going after JML (already got JKL), so it's not about having one or both GL, it's a widespread problem.

    I also don't go past relic 3 on anyone not necessary, and never have
  • I'm a f2p launch player and I'll very likely run out of the bronzium scraps throughout the SEE/JML farm. But I've hoarded lots of crystals so I guess I will have to use some of them to buy scraps...
    Annoying, but it is what it is.

    I believe spending energy refreshes on LS 1-D (or maybe 1-F as well) is cheaper than purchasing them directly with crystals from the Weekly Store. I’ve estimated around 75 white gear pieces for 20 sims (120 energy), which nets you 12 Chips plus a little extra overflow.

    Although I haven’t been able to find drop rates for white gear pieces so that’s not perfect, but it should be better.

    I said this about gear salvage a while ago.
    Being a whale myself I put the warnings out people people keep complaining about all this low gear we keep getting from events and such.
    I said to watch out because it goes really fast once you have lots of reliced characters. Then a GL or 2 pop up and makes us have to level those characters up even more and good by “I have a thousand of this gear stop giving it to me!” complaints lol
    Chromium transistors I find become next bottleneck
  • Not really running out just yet, but I see the problem on the horizon. Oh well, at least farming 6e nodes for GL tickets won't feel like such a waste...

    ... so, what’s a good way to get Bronzium Wiring? That’s my main problem area (along with Aurodium, but that’s because the characters I’m trying to gear for SEE are all at the Holoprojector crunch).

    LS 7B. It gives you the mk5 datapad which is worth 20 and it has the kryotech shock prod.

    I still think the low gear they give out in galactic challenges is useless

    It’s not significant enough to craft more than 1 scrap
  • I am so sad that this is going to severely slow my jml progress.

    No problems at all. The trick is to buy all mats with credits every 6 hours, just do this whenever possible and you're fine.
    Never make the mistake of believing forbearance equates to acceptance, or that all positions are equally valid.
  • Do you mean the first 3 that show up in shipments?

    How many relic levels do you have currently?

    Anybody coming close to running out of salvage for the Carbonite Circuit Board? The bottom item for Relic toons. Anybody hear of any plans CG has to address this issue?

    Why does everyone think CG needs to fix an issue that they Personally have with resource management?

    The whole low level salvage part of relics was kind of sold to the players as a bone they were throwing us so we could use worthless extra gear you get during the normal course of play. The expectation being hinted at that we would not have a "resource management" issue with this. The more perceptive amongst us knew this was not going to be true after a certain amount of time had elapsed.........

  • I don't currently have any issues but I can see where whales may. It really comes down to whether your burn rate is more than your farm rate. If it is then long term you'll have issues.

    A few factors to consider.

    1. Before relics, did you still buy the gear for credits when you had a chance and sim challenges everyday. This would make a huge difference on the initial size of the stockpile. I have no sympathy for those that thought the gear wasn't worth 2 seconds of their time and are now complaining.

    2.The pieces are available in assualt battles so wise relicing can mitigate this issue and start a supply for more future relics.

    3. They are still farmable and available for purchase if you feel the need to relic faster than your stash/income can sustain. This is by design so it isn't going to change.

    So you have a total of 35 relic’ed toons, I’d guess you have 1 GL (or are lacking a lot of great toons), post again about having plenty once you’ve progressed a bit.

    I have no lack of scraps right this second myself with 42 relic’ed toons, but I can see problems looming on the horizon.

    Agreed, with 59 relic’d toon, I still have enough for the time being, but the storm is a brewing on the horizon. Question is, what is the fix?

    Git gud.

    I have both GLs, and JKL. It definitely will become an issue, but probably not until when (if) I go for SEE.
  • Fix? The same as every other resource in this game: spend energy/time farming it, spend crystals in shipments, spend money in packs. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    If you have 0 relic toons that are necessary for JML this amount (of the photo) doesn’t even cover all the requirements. Just saying...

    I don't care about JML and will go for SEE. This is not even close to everything i can get when i start to convert all.

    So what number is "plenty"? And how much is "a bit of progress"?

    So what?
    There will always be threads about "I lack X, gimme more" and no matter what you do or try to help someone will always make fun of you and call your progress "to little to be cared about". At least i try to help and spread my experience of what works for me, you guys are not helping at all.

    I haven’t spent since the hyperdrive bundle came out, and am at about $400 in 5 years. Curious on your spending to get to that point, no shade thrown.

    It’s good that you are trying to help but your roster is not at that level where your experience is helpful. You’ll understand it when you get to this point

    It’s not a simple “I lack X” resource complaint. It’s “I’m out of everything I collected over 4+ years”

    And resource income haven’t increased at all — only increase we got this year was Challenge Tier 3 for Assault Battle and Once a week Galactic Challenges starting last month

    So it’ll take another 4 years worth of effort to do what we have done so far

    No offense but you are far from experiencing the resource crunch at 35 relic toons

    I can spend 4 days to continuously farm stun gun to craft one for 50 salvage piece

    I can spend 4 days to continuously farm 50 salvage of one purple gear to get 2 circuit board

    There is a big difference here and I don’t think it’s fair to treat it like any other gear piece
